What Happened to Good Medicine?KEVIN P. MILLER
Despite the yearly claims of great new pharmaceutical drugs, the percentage of Americans who die each year from cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other disease names has not decreased. Every year in the US, more people die from the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs than die in car accidents. Clearly this is not good medicine. All of this begs the question - What happened to good medicine?
Where Is The Good Medicine?
Did you know that the herbs astragalus and elderberry, and the amino acid; L-Lysine, are powerful broad-spectrum antiviral agents? Did you know that garlic is a powerful natural antibiotic? There are many safe and effective natural remedies for the multitude of maladies that effect mankind but your doctor will never recommend them. Conventional medicine has nothing to combat the vast majority of viruses (they only suppress the symptoms), but still doctors will not recommend astragalus, elderberry, or any of the other natural anti-virals because they are plant based.
Plant-based treatments cannot produce huge profits because they cannot be patented. Huge profits are needed to pay for the expensive FDA approved clinical trials. So, plant-based treatments never get FDA approval to treat a disease. Your doctor can only prescribe treatments that are FDA approved. If your doctor prescribes treatments that are not FDA approved, he or she can be sued or lose their license.
The End of Plant-based Medicine
Around the begining of the last centruy, Rockefeller and Carnegie obtained control over medical school education through the use of the Flexner Report which was written by Henry Pritchett, who was in the employ of Rockefeller. This report favored only the medical schools that concentrated on using drug-based treatments. (See also: "THE DRUG STORY") These schools started to receive large amounts of money from Rockefeller and Carnegie. In 1905, 160 medical schools were in operation. By 1927, 17 years after the Flexner Report, the number had dropped to 80. From then on, pharmaceutical company control of medical school curriculums was assured by the large amounts of money they would "give" to the schools for approved research. That research of course was approved or disapproved by the pharmaceutical companies. Only research that would lead to treatments that could be patented received approval. That eliminated any treatments derived from plants.
Treatment derived from plants are more safe than chemical based treatments that can be patented.
