It’s all about the Money <ul><li>90% of all people in prison </li></ul><ul><li>75% of all murders </li></ul><ul><li>Enron, WorldCom, Martha Stewart </li></ul>
The Purpose of Corporations <ul><li>A. To make profits – Responsibility to ShareHolders </li></ul><ul><li>i. lower the cost of the product </li></ul><ul><li>ii. higher price of the product </li></ul>Consider the Restaurant at the Airport: + They don’t have to rely upon repeat customers because they are a monopoly + They don’t have to rely upon good service, great price or good food + They only have a legal responsibility to make a profit!
The Drug Industry <ul><li>If you sell insulin to a diabetic, would you want a product to enter the market that would put you out of business????? </li></ul>The person who has the cure for diabetes was offered $30 million Not to Market it!!!! + The Redline Train System in California +Peter Duesburg – Why we will never win the War on Aids + The “Insider” – blow the whistle on the tobacco industry + The bottom line is that the Industry has no intention of Healing you or making you well….they go out of business!
“ The things that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It Isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks they are doing are as different as night and day”…Herbert Lay, MD, former FDA Comissionser <ul><li>Drugs and Surgery are the only anwer to prevention and cure of illness and disease </li></ul><ul><li>Who are the culprits: </li></ul><ul><li>The Pharmaceutcal Companies: This includes the researchers, </li></ul><ul><li>Suppliers in the healthcare industry (ie. Syringes, tape, tubing, </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic bottles, etc). Over 10,000 pieces of equipment need to be </li></ul><ul><li>Re-supplied on a regular basis; with astronomical profits. </li></ul>b. The Food Companies: Shared stockholders
<ul><li>C. The Trade Associations: </li></ul><ul><li>Alzheimer’s, Reconstructive Surgery, Neurology, Opthalmology, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine, Gynecology, Geriatrics, Immunologists, Respiratory Care, Liver Diseases </li></ul><ul><li>Cancer Society, Cardiology, Board of Surgeons, </li></ul><ul><li>Lung, diabetes Red Cross, …etc. (some 60 Associations) </li></ul>
<ul><li>D. Charities and Foundations: They sound great, but who runs them?? </li></ul>The Chairmen have huge salaries and enormous expense accounts With your donations (ie. Red Cross, 1995) with over 40% of your Donations going to “administrative costs”. ( Compare to the Salvation Army which has 90% going to the cause) Without the disease, there is no foundation. Think about This…Jerry Lewis has raised over $1 Billion for M.D. but Are we any closer to the cure???? It won’t happen…
<ul><li>E. Lobbyists: You cannot directly bribe a congressman but you can offer his family members a job; or make donations to a favorite school on their behalf or hire companies with which the Congressman is affiliated. </li></ul>
<ul><li>F. Government Agencies: The Federal Trade Commission (FTA) and the Food AND Drug Administration (Notice that Food AND Drug is together for a reason) </li></ul>They can raid your place at any time; They are Judge, Jury and Executioner with guns drawn breaking down The doors….like Nazi Gestapo Of the last 24 FDA Commissioners, twelve went to work directly with the Drug Industry upon retirement; and were paid million upon retirement….a payoff???
<ul><li>G. The Pharmaceutical Industry: These are publicly traded companies and the Officers have a legal responsibility to increase shareholder value. </li></ul><ul><li>How do they do this? </li></ul><ul><li>Sell more of what they have </li></ul><ul><li>Produce at a lower cost </li></ul>Why is there such a stink about drugs being purchased from Canada? The Pharmaceutical Company says Canadians do not Have the same safety standards…..what arrogance!!
Medical Schools and the Pharmaceutical Industry <ul><li>Drug Companies give billions of dollars to medical schools to have their drugs put in textbooks; doctors are taught to prescribe certain drugs </li></ul>+Upon Graduation, the Drug Companies pay the M.D to prescribe THEIR drug….they get “incentives” like trips to the Caribbean, or Riviera to MEDICAL CONFERENCES These medical conferences are sales conferences to sell these drugs with cash kickbacks!
<ul><li>H. Research: Research and Development for one drug is about $800 million. Where does the money go to?? </li></ul><ul><li>Politicians and members of the FDA who are the largest stockholders in the Drug Company </li></ul><ul><li>Once a company gets a patent for a drug they have a monopoly for five years. This is an automatic one billion dollars in the bank </li></ul>
Research (cont’d) <ul><li>The drug companies will never sell a natural cure because the money is to found in “patents”. </li></ul>Every drug you put in your body is toxic!!!! Follow the internal drug cycle: You take the drug and get better, but in a couple of weeks, you are sick again; and so on, and so on, and so on………………….
I. Advertising <ul><li>The drug industry is doing something today that it has never done…it is selling directly to the consumer. </li></ul>Two-Thirds of all advertising on television today is for selling drugs to The tune of $10 Billion annually In most cases, they don’t even tell you what the medication is for!!!!! Millions of dollars are spent on selling the drugs with technology pioneered by the CIA and the KGB!
The Unholy Alliance of the FDA, FTC and the Drug Companies <ul><li>False Mission: Should be governing, regulating and protecting consumers from the drug companies’ desire to make more profits and the consumers’ risk. </li></ul>
The Alliance (cont’d) <ul><li>Real Mission: To work together to increase profits and power </li></ul>A law was passed in congress with virtually no debate which increased the FDA dependence on large drug companies for its funding. * The FDA get funding directly from the Drug Industry..in 1992, with the intention to speed up AIDS Medications
Drug Companies now pay for FDA’s Employees <ul><li>There are over 1500 people working at the FDA who are paid by the Drug companies </li></ul><ul><li>Over 55% of the employees from which the Drug Companies are providing $1.2 Billion to the FDA </li></ul><ul><li>Results: Nine drugs were approved which are known to have deadly side effects </li></ul>
How do the three work together? <ul><li>The FDA performs the following for the Drug Companies: </li></ul><ul><li>A. Suppress the truth about natural cures and other elements (ie. Tryptophane, ephedra) </li></ul><ul><li>B. Shut down companies that sell natural remedies for diseases, especially if you sell products targeted for Cancer, AIDS, Heart Disease and Diabetes which are profitable. </li></ul>
Alliance (cont’d) <ul><li>Press releases on super wonder drugs (Prozac) </li></ul><ul><li>While releasing negative information on natural alternatives </li></ul><ul><li>Medical Experts (TODAY Show) never say they are giving their “opinion”; and there is never an alternative viewpoint </li></ul><ul><li>The “experts” are paid by the drug companies to be their spokeman </li></ul>
Alliance (cont’d) <ul><li>News organizations do not research the stories prepared for them (Dan Rather and Pres. Bush) </li></ul><ul><li>Doesn’t it seem odd that the only people we hear from are medical doctors? And the only info we get is on the use of drugs to handle the problem? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we ever hear about homeopathy, herbal remedies, or natural remedies?? You only hear that they are quacks and that it is not “scientifically proven”. </li></ul>
Alliance (cont’d) <ul><li>The FDA and the FTC have the ability to make law without having to have it voted on in Congress: </li></ul><ul><li>Listen to this outrageous dictum: The FDA has stated as law that the only thing that con cure or prevent a disease is a drug. </li></ul><ul><li>A natural remedy can’t cure a disease because if it did, it would be a “drug” and it is not FDA approved…so it is outlawed </li></ul>
Alliance (cont’d) <ul><li>Remember, natural remedies cannot be patented so it can’t go through the FDA process </li></ul><ul><li>This is why the FDA loves this system…It prevents any natural remedy from being touted as a cure or prevention of disease when in fact many of them are. </li></ul><ul><li>Think about it! The FDA states that only a drug can cure or prevent a disease, absolutely nothing else can. How insane is that? </li></ul>
Question: So, what is the next step?? <ul><li>Answer: Start to classify more and more maladies as diseases. </li></ul>Examples: Heartburn becomes: Acid Reflux Disease Shyness becomes: Social Anxiety Disorder
<ul><li>Too much sugar for kids: </li></ul>Attention Deficit Disorder A woman with low sexual desire is diseased; You now have the disease of alcoholism; Overweight has the disease of obesity
CAN’T GET IT UP…. YOU HAVE ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION DISEASE
<ul><li>Once the FDA has declared a malady a disease, as the final authority, any all-natural company that makes a claim that it has a cure or prevent a disease can be legally entered by the FDA, unannounced, with Federal Agents (guns drawn), and seize the natural product. The owners can’t be jailed for practicing medicine without a license and the business shutdown. </li></ul><ul><li>(The Ben Suarez incident – Bread and cancer) </li></ul>
<ul><li>i. Websites: The FDA has constructed websites that are consumer-oriented about various illness, diseases and cures. </li></ul>These websites are put in by the Drug Companies to appear unbiased They are designed to directly or indirectly sell You more drugs
J. Paying Celebrities <ul><li>During talk shows, the celebrities who </li></ul><ul><li>Stand for a certain type of cause are being paid huge sums of money to promote the drugs </li></ul>It’s like the golf industry, the company says, “ More golf pros are using our club than any other Club”. But the golfers are being paid big buck to Say this. Q. Is it the best driver or are They using it because they Are being paid to use it?
k. Use of Books <ul><li>Drug companies pay millions of dollars to “alleged” experts (doctors) to write of the drugs in their books…. “Written by an independent medical expert”. </li></ul>Fact: Drug companies are Paying “experts” to write The books which are nothing More than ADS for the Drug Company
l. Censorship of New Ideas <ul><li>This is truly scary! Although we live in America we do NOT have free speech in this area. </li></ul>There are hundreds of books written About the Drug Industry and its collusion With lobbyists, government groups and Corporations which are never published!
M. Censorship of Advertising <ul><li>Many media corporations are subsidiaries of larger corporations, like the Pharmaceutical Companies…and many of the directors of the media sources are stock holders in the Drug Companies….what are your chances of advertising or introducing an idea to de-bunk a Drug? </li></ul>
N. Debunking Natural Remedies <ul><li>The U.S. Government has said, “to get people to believe the government’s opinion is to put together a well orchestrated debunking campaign. </li></ul>The FDA, FTC, the healthcare organizations And the entire Drug Industry produces scare stories
Still Not Convinced? <ul><li>In the 1970’s, the FDA said that vitamins were so dangerous they should only be prescribed by doctors. The public was outraged and Congress rejected the idea. </li></ul>In 1993, the FDA went after Certain amino acids and minerals But public outcry prevented it from Ever happening
