    ***Ten realizations about "mainstream medicine"***

    #1) If mainstream medicine really worked, then drug companies wouldn't have to commit scientific fraud to fake their clinical trials, would they?

    #2) If mainstream medicine really worked, then doctors, drugs companies and the FDA wouldn't be afraid of competition from nutritional supplements and natural remedies, and they wouldn't keep trying to censor or outlaw those natural remedies.

    #3) If mainstream medicine really worked, drug companies would gladly test their drugs side-by-side with nutritional remedies to see what works best. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028473_Z...)

    #4) If mainstream medicine really worked, health insurance costs would be extremely low. The only reason health insurance costs so much is because mainstream medicine doesn't cure anybody, and patients stay sick, which costs more money to keep treating!

    #5) If mainstream medicine really worked, then all the other countries in the world would be looking at the U.S. health care system and saying, "Wow, we want THAT!"

    #6) If mainstream medicine really worked, drug companies would be out of business because virtually everybody would be healthy and therefore not need drugs on an ongoing basis.

    #7) If mainstream medicine really worked, doctors would largely put themselves out of business by teaching patients how to take care of their own health.

    #8) If mainstream medicine really worked, drug companies like Johnson & Johnson wouldn't have to pay kickbacks (bribes) to nursing homes to entice them to push more of their drugs onto helpless senior citizens.

    #9) If mainstream medicine really worked, the treatment of teenagers with chemotherapy wouldn't have to be enforced by court order with the threat of arrest and imprisonment of the parents (as happens in the U.S. today). (http://www.naturalnews.com/Abraham_...)

    #10) If mainstream medicine really worked, drug companies wouldn't need to advertise on television to persuade people to take drugs they don't need.

    Mainstream medicine, you see, isn't satisfied to just treat sick people with its medications, radiation machines and surgical procedures: It wants to put all the healthy people on pills, too.

    And what will be the result of all this? Imagine in your own mind, for a moment: What will be the result if, say, Americans start taking twice as much medication as they do right now. Will Americans be healthier?

    Of course not. They will be more diseased. More medicated and chemically contaminated. The fish downstream will be even more polluted with pharmaceutical runoff and the bio sludge human waste "compost" products now being put on farms will be even more heavily saturated with medication chemicals.

    Will that create health for America? Of course not. Mainstream medicine does not work. And pushing mainstream medicine onto more people will only cause more sickness, more suffering and more bankruptcies across American households.

    It will, however, accomplish one very important thing: The obscene financial enrichment of a few powerful corporations like Pfizer, Merck, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

    And that, my friends, is the entire point of mainstream medicine: To mainline the profits for Big Pharma, sideline the legitimate health problems of the American people, and streamline the criminal soaking of the rich, the poor and the recently-insured in order to turn sickness into profit.

    That's mainstream medicine for you. I'm sure glad I don't use it.

    • Mr. Mirt. You are 1000 pct correct. Thank you. Your facts are indisputable and anyone who tries is a slimey liar and apologist for the medical industry and the international pharmaceutical drug cartel. More powerful in it's little finger than the cocaine cartel ever was in it's heyday.

      Which unfortunately is why I am 1000 pct invested in pharmaceutical drug companies that make those obscene profits and not in any of those natural therapies and treatments that will continue to be surpressed. It's sad, but it's the truth. And, there is no way out. They have the power, we have the crumbs. So, hold your nose, close your eyes and your ears and invest heavily in big pharma because the whiney baby boom generation that really does want to live forever and ever is about to retire en-mass. This industry is going to explode in profits.

        wiech89, yes valid points but remember this. Little by little the Tobacco lies of years ago were brought down and it is slowly happening to Big Pharma as I am sure you have observed.

        AND here is the danger for you and many who do so.

        For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

        Agree with you 115%

    • Mainsteam medicine is a fraud. Doctors are NOT scientists. They just observe and treat symptoms based on what they memorize from a book. It is cookbook medicine.

      Cancer treatments just poison the body and make people sicker. Yeah, maybe they live a few extra months but they have no quality of life. Nobody knows the longterm implications of vacines and new drugs. people need to eat better, exercise, and take responsibilty for their own health. Relying on a magic pill is foolish. People are getting fatter and sicker and the drug companies are filling the fat bastards with toxic medications to relieve their symptoms but they DON'T cure a frigging thing!!!

        You are correct and it's just the tip of the operating room and drug scheme. Over 100 thousand people a year die in hospitals from drugs, doctors and diseases aquired in hospitals. Only a few years ago we were told that it was only a ''few thousand'' These lying sacks of murderous ghouls don't give a rats rear end what happens to anyone other than themselves and more than you can imagine actually enjoy your suffering. It makes them feel powerful and that is just how sick in the head too many of them are.

        Harold Shipman of Hyde England, that is Doctor Harold Shipman holds the record as the worlds most prolific serial killer. At last count they were up to 350 and they are still counting. He was killing patients while he was in medical school and kept killing them until he was 64 years old.

        Evil does exist and often seeks out industries and professions where it can express itself to it's fullest. Doctors literally have a license to kill. That makes James Bond look like a child.

        So, invest often and invest a lot in the drug and device industry. As Henry Fonda so aptly said in ''Once upon a time in the West'' when he was told to scare some people off their land and instead killed the whole family, ''people scare better when they're dying''. How true.

        So live in fear and invest in Big Pharma, you won't regret it and you will get rich.

      • I work for a leading drug company. Many of our leading researchers are both MD's and PhD's. Many are PhD's. Are PhD's scientists? Cancer is a very tough disease for a variety of reasons. So, let's all follow your advice get rid of vaccines for polio, tetanus, etc. and go back to the 1800's. By the way, if it were not for the pharma industry, every type 1 diabetic in the world would be dead.

      • the greedy killers don't know what to say to your truthful words so they insult you and call you names like little children. The fact is if you interfere with their murder machine and interfere with their money they get aggravated and attack you just like the drug companies do.
        The drug companies have sponsored an investigation of the head of the FDA just to see if there was any dirt they could use to black mail her into approving their poisons. the lying thieving killers will do anything to protect their money machine despite the fact it kills people every day.

      • < People are getting fatter and sicker and the drug companies are filling the fat bastards with toxic medications to relieve their symptoms but they DON'T cure a frigging thing!!!>

        So true.

        ***When it comes to infective and especially degenerative diseases, Prescription Drugs are the largest orchestrated fraud in human history.***

      • get off the board you big dope!

    • I agree with you and if i had my way those that try to sell this stock and this poison would be executed for murder.

    • your not serious w/ this silly line of reasoning, mirtocap cause I find your arguments ludicrous, far fetched and not worth reading for the most part!

      Get off the board, you big DOPE!

    • "That's mainstream medicine for you. I'm sure glad I don't use it."

      yeah good luck treating your syphilis with homeopathy.

    • You need to spend more time educating your self about the etiology and complexity of human disease.

      I am sure you spend your share of time reading a lot of propaganda on "natural cures" and the "evil pharma industry"... do yourself a favor and read a legitimate publication about the efforts being undertaken to cure deadly diseases.

      Good luck to you.

      • Well, in this world...NOBODY truly understands what is happening, not me, not you, nobody, it has gotten to the point where the Goverment, the big pharma companies, and, literly, anybody can come up with some complex plan involving millions of people against their own will and make them believe is the right thing to do....its 2010!! you have to choose what you want to believe, im not sure i would call the man a child molester because of it...but he has one huge side and nobody to give him solid proof...i dunno i say screw it all and do your best to make money off them wheather or not their bastards or not. theres no way to know, just deal with it

      • <I am sure you spend your share of time reading a lot of propaganda on "natural cures" and the "evil pharma industry"... do yourself a favor and read a legitimate publication about the efforts being undertaken to cure deadly diseases.>

        Do you mean like Big Pharama solutions with
        Vioxx, Bextra, Celebrex, etc.?

        Suggest you educate yourself on solutions that solve the cause of the diseases. Statin Drugs an example of a drug that doesn't cure the cause of the disease.

        Have a nice day!

    • Yes there Mr. Mirt. Agree with you completely. I too say "LONG and STRONG" with Merck. Thanks for the helpful trading tips and happy trading to you as well, my good buddy.
