Conflict of Interest – The Alternative Approach

By: Roy Williams

We need medical freedom in America. Our convoluted system has gained so much power over the last 60 years that there are absolutely no checks and balances. The fox has literally been put in charge of the hen house.

A man or woman goes to medical school for a decade or longer to become educated enough to get a license to practice medicine. The school he or she goes to must be licensed to educate that person. The governing body that decides what can be taught and gives the school a license to teach that information is biased to the point of being immoral.

Let me explain it this way. Because of the very rules and regulations that I just talked about, there is a monopoly, which is unconstitutional. It is 100% controlled by the drug industry; they have built an air tight system that guarantees that they maintain control and therefore eliminate any competition.

A word about competition. When you live in a capitalistic society, the most important part of its success is that everyone involved has a playing field that allows competition. When two or more businesses can compete, prices are always lower.

If company A makes a widget for $100 and company B makes a better widget for only $80, over time company A will have to lower its prices or most of the market will go to company B.

Because the pharmaceutical industry has a governing body called the FDA that makes the final decision on which drugs will be allowed on the market, nothing outside the pharmaceutical industry can compete. Even if you discover an all-natural supplement that not only works better than the drug but also saves more lives and has no side effects, your doctor will never be the one to tell you about it.

Therein lies the danger of being dependent on the medical profession. There are thousands of natural remedies that are much more effective, but if your doctor tells you about them, he or she runs the possibility of losing the right to practice medicine.

You don’t believe me, then try to get a double-blind placebo-controlled study done on something like vitamin B-17 or Graviola for the treatment of cancer. You can have thousands of people with their doctor’s reports showing reductions in tumor growth and complete remission and they will never do the double-blind placebo-controlled study on them.

Just consider the book, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks But People Do. In it, Matthias Rath, using the most expensive medical equipment, proved that vitamin C along with a few other nutrients stopped and reversed heart disease in every patient. Not only did it stop the increase in size of blockages in 6 months, all blockages were cut in half in one year, and in two years, the blockages were eliminated.

You might think that he would have been given the Noble Prize in Medicine. After all, his findings could put an end to heart disease, the number one killer in the industrialized world. No, instead they started doing character assassination, slapped him with lawsuits, and took away his license.

In his book, he called the pharmaceutical industry “the drug cartel.” He shows the before and after treatment pictures of his patients; and he even shows the medical reports of people with cardiomyopathy, a death sentence without a heart transplant, being completely normal. Even enlarged hearts became normal size.

The only accepted way to treat any aliment must be approved by, you guessed it, the FDA which, as I said, is controlled by the drug industry. The drug industry also owns the schools, creates the tests, decides which drugs can be prescribed, and then makes the rules — one of which is that if you treat any patient with any surgery or drug outside their guidelines, your license to practice medicine will be taken.

No one working for the FDA should be allowed to own any stock or interest in the pharmaceutical industry because that is a conflict of interest. No organization or person that has an interest or stock in the pharmaceutical industry should be allowed to be involved in a double-blind-placebo-controlled study for the approval of a drug. That would be a conflict of interest.

At this point I believe that the only way to stop this insanity is to set new standards for drug approval. The drug must have at least a 50% success rate before it can be approved.

Until the American public understands just how corrupt and immoral the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA have become, let me suggest that you consider an all-natural approach to health care.
