Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. According to the National Institute of Health, around 1,658,370 new cases will be diagnosed and 589,430 people will die from cancer in 2015. While most conventional cancer treatments revolve around a mix of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, some people question their efficacy — particularly chemotherapy.
While doctors don’t get direct kickbacks for prescribing most medications, chemo drugs are unique in that the doctors purchase them from the pharmaceutical company and then sell them to patients at a profit.
The only reason chemotherapy is used is because doctors make money from it — period. It doesn’t work 97 percent of the time. If Ford Motor Company made an automobile that exploded 97 percent of the time, would they still be in business? No.
This issue as just one example of a so-called healthcare system that prioritizes profits over human wellness. This is the tip of the iceberg of the control that the pharmaceutical industry has on us.
Radiation can cause similar harm. It’s an assault with a deadly weapon. When you radiate someone, it’s causing scars. A scar can never turn back into healthy tissue.
The problem is the way doctors are trained. No medical doctor ever learns about curing anything. They learn about chemical intervention or surgery to suppress symptoms. They don’t go for the root cause.
