"The War In Medicine"
Continued from previous post.The FDA Versus Freedom of Speech
It should be up to the patient (and patients give referrals when
their doctor heals them) to choose which type of doctor to go to,
and which type of treatment they receive. As mentioned above, the
patient should be given more information, not less.
Am I endorsing total chaos in the field of medicine? Let's think
about that. When a person has cancer, and decides not to go on
chemotherapy (by their own choice), where is he or she going to
get medical advice? Most likely they are going to ask their friends
if they know anything about alternative treatments for cancer. Most
likely their friends know more than an M.D. about alternative
treatments for cancer, but far too little to give any type of
intelligent advice. Thus, we already have chaos in medicine because
most information about medicine comes from people watching
television which glorifies medical doctors in order to
sell more drugs.
There is no simple solution to the problem. Things are so messed
up right now there needs to be a total re-evaluation of cancer
treatment credentials. The bottom line is that patients should
have far more options, and far more information, in choosing a
treatment plan for themselves than they get from television.
Congress, the FDA, AMA, etc. have done everything in their
power to make sure citizens will never get good information.
In fact freedom of speech is all about hearing equal amounts of
differing options and information. Patients do not have that,
and neither do the medical doctors.
But the real problem goes much deeper than just licenses. Another
key is good statistical information about different cancer
treatments. This is exactly where the National Institutes of Health
(NIH), National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Cancer
Society (ACS), etc., enter the picture. Their key job is to insure
all research money goes to orthodox medicine and that alternative
medicine research (and truthful information) is crushed.
For example, not even medical doctors have good statistical
information about comparing the Brandt Grape Cure (applying
discoveries made since she designed her treatment plan) "cure rate"
to the chemotherapy "cure rate," for different types of cancer,
etc. But even if they did have the information, they couldn't use
What I am trying to say is that even if herbalists, chiropractors,
etc. started treating cancer patients legally, it wouldn't help much
because the statistical information about cancer treatments is not
available. That's why I say it is not totally a license issue.
I would not be as severely opposed to the current system if medical
doctors had good access to valid and honest (with a big emphasis
on the word: honest) statistical information and if they were allowed
to practice alternative medicine, as an M.D., without getting thrown
in jail and/or having their license revoked.
