Would the medical community lie to you for money?

Would the medical community lie to you for money?

The medical community loves flawed medical studies. They use them for two specific purposes:

First, they use flawed medical studies to gain approval for dangerous prescription drugs that kill more than 100,000 Americans per year and seriously injure some 2.1 million more.

Secondly, they used flawed medical studies to “prove” that nutritional supplements and other natural healing modalities are “useless” or even “dangerous.”

In short, raw corporate greed is the main reason the medical community loves flawed medical studies. They make billions of dollars a year selling the latest prescription “miracle drugs” that get approved based upon the results of their flawed studies. And they keep millions of Americans in a constant state of ill-health by using flawed medical studies to promote the idea that better nutrition is worthless.

Only last week it was revealed by Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, that doctors receiving huge pay-offs from the pharmaceutical industry (one doc got over $1.6 million in payoffs) used flawed medical studies to justify the use of potentially dangerous prescription drugs, oftentimes even on children.

Did you hear about that on the news? Probably not. And here’s why: As soon as the story broke, the orthodox medical community released their latest study claiming to demonstrate that multi-vitamins have no beneficial effects whatsoever against cardiovascular disease or cancer. And of course, the news media dutifully ate up that story, plastering it across headlines in the print and internet news media, and running the story ad nauseum on their TV news broadcasts.

Pot Calls the Kettle Black

It seems the orthodox medical community pot is always calling the natural health community kettle black, in order to protect their own turf.

It is almost a proverb that accusers with vested interests in maintaining the status quo and protecting their turf tend to reveal more about themselves in their accusations than they do about their victims. They point the finger and scream “Quackery!” and “Fraud!” at the natural health industry, when in reality it is they who are committing the quackery and fraud. Their accusations against natural health are only designed to hide their own evil doings.

The Study that Studied Nothing

In the news article below, we see the how the news media has loudly touted the latest new “study” by the medical community, which supposedly proves that multi-vitamins are useless. Yet a careful examination of the study demonstrates that absolutely nothing was actually “studied.”

In fact, far from a “study,” it was really more of a poll in which the medicrats simply asked women whether or not they take multi-vitamins and whether or not they have ever had heart disease or cancer. They then concluded that because many people who claim to have taken multi-vitamins later got either cancer or heart disease, vitamin intake must be worthless!

I wonder if they’ve ever done a poll like that, asking people if they’ve ever taken aspirin, and then asking them if they’ve ever had a headache. Obviously, just about everybody would say “yes” to both questions, and the only conclusion that could be deduced from the results would be that aspirin is useless against headaches.

Deceiving the Gullible Public Into Staying Sick and Dependent on Drugs

As usual, the medicrats know exactly what they are doing. The general public is unfortunately very gullible. They believe pretty much everything they hear on the news. And even more so if the name of a prestigious medical group or medical journal is invoked. And they never look any further into it than what their newsman tells them.

Mores the pity, because they have no idea that the medicrats have a vested financial interest in keeping them in a chronic state of ill-health, which means keeping them off of vitamins and other inexpensive nutrients that could bolster their immunity, strength and well-being.

After all, healthy people don’t make the medical community any money. Only weak, unhealthy people do.

Women's Multivitamin Study Seriously Flawed, As Usual

Tuesday, February 10, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) A new study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine claims that multivitamins are useless at preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease in women. The mainstream media has predictably picked up on this story, gleefully running it as "proof" that nutrition is worthless and only pharmaceuticals can enhance your health.

What they're not telling you, though, might shock you. Here's the truth about this so-called "scientific" study on multivitamins:

• No multivitamins were even used in the study! The women followed in this study weren't actually given any multivitamins at all. They were simply asked if they take multivitamins!

• There was no quality control in the study. Since no multivitamins were given to women, there was no quality control at all. Did these women take cheap, synthetic vitamins bought at Costco? Or did they take quality supplements from better sources? Nobody knows because it wasn't tracked!

• Most people SAY they take multivitamins, but don't. If you ask most people, they will TELL you they eat healthy, and that they take multivitamins. But in reality they don't. Most people greatly exaggerate the description of their own health habits.

• Multivitamin consumption FREQUENCY was not accurately measured. There was no ability of this study to reliably measure how often consumers actually took their multivitamins. Did they take them once a week? Once a month? Once a year? Even taking them once a year would have counted in this study as "taking multivitamins." Gee, no wonder the results showed no improvement...

In effect, this study did not measure the effects of multivitamins on cancer and heart disease. What it really measured was the degree to which people exaggerate their own claims of health habits, and the degree to which the mainstream media so easily falls for junk science.

The MSM remains utterly clueless about nutrition, and it simply reprints practically any study published in a medical journal, even when that study is obviously based on deceptive science and a pro-Pharma agenda.

All these attacks on vitamin C, vitamin E, antioxidants and multivitamins have the same source: The Big Pharma-funded mainstream media and its effort to try to discredit nutritional supplements in order to please advertisers.

The very idea that nutrition is bad for you but Big Pharma's chemicals are good for you is insane to begin with. But that's what they want you to believe: Nutrition isn't required in the human body, they claim. But pharmaceutical chemicals are essential!

What they want you to do is shut up, eat your (processed) food, take your (chemical) medications, get your (fraudulent) disease screening, pay your taxes, watch television ads, make more (sheeple) babies and stop questioning the status quo. And multivitamins? Stop wasting your money on them. You'll need that money to buy more monopoly-priced pharmaceuticals, after all.Buzz up!3 votes
