PHARMACEUTICAL MEDICINE. Just how dangerous is it to our health? And why is a flu outbreak in Chine causing panic?

There have been many attempts to calculate how many deaths are caused by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. It is a a difficult calculation, not least because when offering a cause of death in post mortems few doctors will want to admit that drugs (s)he or colleagues have administered are the cause of death. Most, therefore, are under-estimates about the dangers of conventional medicine.

The Pharma Death Clock website has tried to estimate the harm that is being caused to patient by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines since 2000. It is a frighting read.
  • Iatrogenic deaths - 15,733,539 people
  • Hospital errors resulting in death - 8,830,770 people
  • Death caused by adverse drug reactions - 2,127,413 people
And these figures, plus many, many more on this website, are just for the USA! It calculates that worldwide Superbugs (caused by antibiotic drugs) have alone caused 14,048,956 deaths. In Britain it calculates that chemotherapy drugs have killed 301,049 people!

So perhaps the headline news today (21 January 2020), that the British NHS faces a huge clinical negligence legal fees bill should not come as a great surprise - and certainly not to regular readers of this blog. The figures quoted in the news releases reflects the horrendous dangers of pharmaceutical medicine.
  • £4.3 billion in legal fees to settle outstanding claims of clinical 'negligence'
  • that every year the NHS receives over 10,000 new claims for compensation
  • that the total cost of outstanding compensation claims is now £83 billion (against a total annual NHS budget of £129 billion)
Medical errors. Are they bankrupting the British NHS?

Yet the analysis of this 'problem' is never accurate. We are not witnessing here something that can be dismissed as 'errors' or 'negligence'. We are witnessing the consequence of an inherently dangerous form of medicine, conventional medicine, pharmaceutical medicine, that now dominates national health services around the world.

Nor does the problem end of patient death. In a series of blogs I have written over the last year it has become clear that doctors, the front-line face of this dangerous medical practise, can no longer afford to pay their own medical insurance premiums.
  • SO WHAT SORT OF MEDICINE IS THIS?
  • IT IS A MEDICINE THAT SEEKS TO DEFLECT ATTENTION AWAY FROM ITS DANGEROUS AND LETHAL OUTCOMES TO PATIENTS
The other main health news hitting the headlines recently concerns the 'new Chinese influenza virus' which has affected, to date, about 200 people in the Chinese town of Wuhan, and killed a total of 4 people. This is a problem considered to be sufficiently serious that medical authorities in Australia, Singapore, Hong Cong, Taiwan and Japan have already "stepped up screening of air passengers from Wuhan". It is likely that this panic will continue to escalate around the world.

Yet these same medical authorities do not panic about the numbers of people who are being routinely harmed, and killed by pharmaceutical medicine's 'negligence' each and every year!

These are the medical authorities who support a form of medicine' that makes us sick, causes epidemic levels of chronic disease, and kills millions of patients, and whose only response to the havoc it generates is to demand more and more money from governments around the world.

We need to start demanding answers. Why is the death of 4 people in China a matter of concern when the iatrogenic death of 15,733,539 people in the USA not? Why is a influenza outbreak a matter of panic when homeopathy is a safe, effective and inexpensive means of preventing, and treating flu?

HPV (Gardasil) Vaccine - linked to lowered probability of pregnancy

In June 2018, the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health published an article Gayle DeLong entitled 'A lowered probability of pregnancy in females in the USA aged 25-29 who received a human papillomavirus vaccine injection'. This is an everyday event - medical science publishing research and evidence about pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. However it is one the demonstrates the dishonesty of medical science.


               "Data revealed that 60% of women who had not received the HPV vaccine had been pregnant at least once, while only 35% of HPV vaccine recipients had ever conceived. The article detailed the statistical analysis as well as offered possible biological mechanisms for the results.  Three researchers peer-reviewed the article. When the article first appeared, the editors eagerly promoted it by making it free.  By early December 2019, the number of downloads reached close to 24,000."

This is how medical science is supposed to work - if it functioned honestly and openly. But, of course, it doesn't. Young girls, and their parents, who are routinely encouraged by doctors to have the vaccination, are (or at least should be) entitled to know all there is to know about the likely side effects and consequences of any medication. But pharmaceutical medicine does not work this way. It is a business that thrives on enticing patients to take drugs and vaccines, and information about side effects is not good for drug sales.

Medical journals, such as the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, should publish evidence about every drug and vaccine. This particular research was processed in the normal way, peer reviewed, and published. Then it was withdrawn - and withdrawn without any satisfactory reason being given.


Yet the detail is not important. What we are dealing with is a medical system that does not want patients to know about the serious, life-changing side effects of their drugs and vaccines. If the conventional medical establishment was honest it would look at DeLong's findings, and be sufficiently concerned to look further into the findings. Indeed, on the basis of 'first do no harm', and the precautionary principle, it would suspend use of the vaccine.

None of this is done. Instead, the journal pulls the research. It is important to realise that medical journals survive only on the basis of funding from the pharmaceutical industry. So if drug companies don't like a piece of research, if it might have an effect on profits, it is easier to ensure that the research is pulled rather than to seek to make the vaccine safe, and free of side effects.
So it's not just that pharmaceutical medicine peddles dangerous drugs and vaccines. It is that the pharmaceutical industry has sufficient control over medical journals (a major source of information doctors rely on) to ensure that they don't have to worry about the dangers - neither doctors nor patients will get to know about them.

So our daughters are damaged....
...and the drug companies rake in the profits.

EATING DISORDERS. One cause, routinely ignored by conventional medicine, is pharmaceutical drugs

Eating disorders, like Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia, are reaching epidemic proportions. They have been around for a long time, but they have increased substantially in recent times. One study found that the incidence of anorexia nervosa is around 8 per 100,000 persons per year, with "an upward trend has been observed in the incidence of anorexia nervosa in the past century till the 1970s" with "the most substantial increase was among females aged 15-24 years, for whom a significant increase was observed from 1935 to 1999".

This is, of course, the period when pharmaceutical drugs became more widely available and consumed, perhaps something that the conventional medical establishment wants to ignore as a possible cause of this increase. 

And the incidence of eating disorders continues to rise, alarmingly. In 2020, NHS Digital date (England) showed that hospital admissions for eating disorders rose by 37% across all age groups over the previous two years. They showed that there were 19,040 admissions for eating disorders in 2018/19, up from 16,558 the year before, and 13,885 in 2016/17. The most common age for patients with anorexia was 13 to 15. These British figures are mirrored across the entire pharmaceutical drug-taking world!

So what is pharmaceutical medicine, and the NHS doing about this rising tide of illness?
  • They are spending money on it of course - more and more.
  • They diagnose it mainly as a psychological illness, which means more counselling, more 'talking cures', and demands for more mental health provision
  • And they come up with a number of reasons for the increase in eating disorders
Yet the reason doctors provide are no more than excuses - one of the most important reasons for the increase in eating disorders are pharmaceutical drugs. 

Research published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2019 (doi: 10.2105 / AJPH. 2019. 305390), found that young women who take diet pills and laxatives to reduce their weight are more likely to suffer an eating disorder just a year or so later.
  • Laxatives increased the risk 5-fold and diet pills by 80%. These pills are easy to purchase over-the-counter in pharmacies or online. 
The researchers, from Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, described their findings as "a wake-up call" and called for a ban on their sale to young girls. Neither is going to happen.
  • Conventional medicine will not 'wake up' as it is routinely and vigorously opposed to any suggestion that the drugs and vaccines they prescribe to patients cause serious illness and disease.
  • And the drugs that cause eating disorders will not be banned because the powerful pharmaceutical industry will not allow them to be banned.
It is the same for all the epidemics of chronic disease we are now witnessing. One of the major causes of all of them are pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, but this is always denied by the conventional medical establishment.

So an important cause of the disease is ignored, and the disease continues to grow and grow. Conventional medicine bemoans increased patient demands on resources, their inability to cope with this increased demand, and seek increased resources to enable them to cope with the problem.

Conventional medicine is an on-going, self-fulfilling disaster!

Pharmaceutical Medicine. It's death throes within the NHS. Perhaps Patient Choice and Homeopathy can help?

Pharmaceutical medicine within the British NHS is in it's death throes. Only patient choice, and the reintroduction of homeopathy, and other natural therapies, is likely to save it.
  • Sick patients cannot get timely access to treatment anywhere in the system
  • Hospital beds are full, with some sick patients laying on trolleys in corridors
  • Accident & Emergency (A&E) waiting times are getting ever longer
  • In most areas it is getting more difficult to get a doctors appointment
  • Doctors are in short supply, many retiring early, and/or reducing their working hours because of the stress involved in the jobs
  • Nurses are getting scarcer too, overworked and underpaid (nurses in Northern Ireland are on strike today)
  • The routine annual winter NHS crisis is already worse this year than it was last year
  • There appears to be a flu epidemic of massive proportions on the near horizon, with admissions to hospital rising by more than 40% just this week alone
  • The newly elected Conservative government is making promises about huge increases in funding for the  NHS, and the recruitment of thousands more doctors and nurses (without apparently too much idea about from where they might emerge)
Anyone who has not read this blog before might be scratching their head and asking why this should be, or otherwise accepting the usual excuses - about us getting older, and the chronic under-funding over the last 10 years.
  • This is all nonsense. This is the failure of an entire medical system - pharmaceutical medicine, based as it is on drugs and vaccines - which through their (largely denied) 'side effects' and 'adverse reactions' are making us increasingly sick.
  • So to spend more money on more drugs and vaccines; and more doctors to dispense them; and more nurses to cope with patients who suffer not only from an illness, but from the side effects of drug treatment, do not get well but are being made sicker. This is NOT a solution.
So can I offer a solution? Offer every waiting, suffering patient - 'patient choice' - a choice of medical therapies.

Go the the people who are queuing at the GP surgeries, at hospitals, at A&E, and make them an offer - an appointment with a local homeopath, or osteopath, or naturopath, or herbalist, et al.

The NHS (dominated and controlled as it is by pharmaceutical interests) will most certainly complain that these natural therapies do not work (and other nonsense). And some patients will not want to take up the offer - which in terms of patient choice and health freedom is fine.

But many patients will welcome the opportunity to remove themselves from the queues, and to receive treatment.

The therapists are out here. Many will be able, happy, even glad to take on additional patients. For the NHS it will not only shorten the queues, it will take the pressure off doctors, nurses, and other staff. For the therapist it will be an opportunity to demonstrate how successful they can be in tackling serious illness and disease. For patients it will open their minds to new medical therapies that can be used for sickness that is not, or cannot be successfully treated with pharmaceutical medicine.

This would be a win-win situation for everyone
(with the possible exception of the pharmaceutical industry)

VACCINES & VACCINATION. Political bribery and industrial corruption.

  • Most politician in the USA support mass vaccination programmes.
  • Many politicians in the USA support mandatory vaccination.
  • All politicians in the USA seem incapable of understanding, and unwilling to see, that vaccines cause patient harm.
The HPV-Vaccine Side Effects website has asked the question
  • Why do almost all politicians support mass vaccination?
and came up with a simple but telling answer from some publicly available statistics to back up that answer. The generated a list of donations accepted by leading USA politicians from the health sector. They require little clarification.

Bernie Sanders. Democrat. $2,052,050

Joe Biden. Democrat. $1,330,186

Donald Trump. Republican. $1,797,878

Mike Pence. Republican. $1,003,645

Elizabeth Warren. Democrat. $1,369,497

Nancy Pelosi. Democrat. £454,745

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Democrat. £34,965

Ted Cruz. Republican. $34,965

Pete Buttigieg. Democrat. $1,870,719

Lindsey Graham. Republican. $514,197

Cory Booker. Democrat. $525,164

Marco Rubio. Republican. $920,884

Mitt Romney. Republican. £148,350

Mitch McConnell. Republican. $2,748,789

They looked only at the most popular current politicians on the https://today.yougov.com/ratings/politics/poularity/politicians/all website. Their conclusion was simple.

               "You will notice for sure that it doesn’t matter much to which party the politicians belong. Republicans or Democrats, they all get money directly from the health industry and of course this will influence their decisions."
My conclusion.
  • The payments are not made for nothing, without accepting something in return. 
  • The payments are corrupt, corrupting of both payer and beneficiary. 
  • They are made by an industrial sector that has an agenda - the problems associated with a failing industry that is harming and killing millions of people.
Is it the same in Europe. Perhaps not to the same obvious extent, there are rules that prevent these kinds of excessive political donation to politicians, and to political parties. But with an industry with unlimited resources to spend on bribery there are no doubt lots of ways they can generate the same result.

THE SOLUTION TO THE PHARMACEUTICAL VACCINE AND DRUG HARM THAT IS CURRENTLY RAVISHING THE WORLD IS UNLIKELY TO COME FROM OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES.

DEATH BY PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS. Equivalant to one Jumbo Jet crashing every day. And that's just in the USA! The failure of Regulation. The failure of politicians and governments to protect the people.

Jon Rappoport's blog has regularly referred to the medical drugs that are killing Americans at the rate of 106,000 per year, or as he says, a million deaths every decade. He takes this figure from an estimate published on 26th July 2000 by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), entitled "Is US health really the best in the world?", written by Barara Starfield at the John Hopkins School of Public Health.

Yet even Starfield's calculation must now be considered to be an under-estimate, given the prodigious number of pharmaceutical drugs being prescribed now as compared to 20 years ago. As Rappoport said in his blog

               "Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors. It's chemical warfare".



Yet even with 106,000 people dying from pharmaceutical medicine, 1,000,000 every decade, remains just a statistic, and number. So what exactly does this number represent?

It represents a Jumbo Jet crashing every day, killing nearly 300 people,
plus the distress and grief caused to their families and friends.

So, if a Jumbo Jet did crash every day what action might we expect to be taken by the aviation authorities? They would surely ground all the planes, remove them from the sky, and insist that they do not fly again until they were proven to be safe.

And, of course, this is exactly what has happened following 'a mere' 2 jumbo jets crashing earlier this year, one in Indonesia, the other in Ethiopia, killing many more than 300 people. The planes, Boeing 737 Max airliners, were grounded, removed from the sky, and told they would not fly again until they were proven to be safe.

Yesterday, the USA's Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) announced that the planes would not be allowed to fly again, even after nine months after the two planes had crashed. The FAA has taken decisive action, even though it has been (quite rightly) criticised for allowing a flawed aircraft to fly in the first place!

This is, after all, what people expect from regulators, whether it is planes, drugs, or anything else  - that they take decisive action to protect the public from harm, both before it happens, and after tragedies of this kind.

So what is the US drug regulator, the FDA, doing about the public dying at an equivalent rate on one Jumbo Jet crashing every day?

IT IS DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AT ALL!


In fairness, the FDA is not alone in its incompetence and lack of concern. Just as aviation regulators in other countries failed to take action against the Boeing 737 Max airliner, other pharmaceutical drug regulators around the world (the EDA in Europe, the MHRC in Britain, et al) are failing with an equal lack of concern, and displaying an equal lack of competence.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines continue to be approved, and subsequently given to patients, who are harmed and even killed by them.
  • And when this harm is proven, little action is taken, beyond exhorting doctors to be more careful when prescribing them.
And just as the FAA has been accused of being "too close" to Boeing, and its commercial and financial interests, the FDA is regularly accused of being "too close" to the massively powerful pharmaceutical industry. Indeed, all industrial regulators are too close to the companies they are supposed to be regulating. The reason is usually simple, but essentially corrupt.
  • Usually, regulators and the process of regulation is paid for by the companies they are supposed to be regulating.
  • It is in the financial and commercial interest of companies to 'cosy-up' to regulators, to make it worthwhile for the regulator not to regulate too rigorously. And this is what happens.
  • There is also, often. a 'revolving door', with company employees becoming regulators, and vice versa. The regulated becomes the regulator!
  • Even politicians and governments seem unconcerned, perhaps in the realisation that company investments, and the employment they provide, are good for their political interests.
The only people who lose out are the very people regulators are supposed to be protecting!

Pharmaceutical medicine. What a faff! Drugs make everything so complicated. Homeopathy is so much simpler

Have you ever wondered how complicated conventional, drug-based medicine can be? For instance, we have all heard the usual instructions from our medical doctors in recent months about the importance of the getting the influenza, or flu vaccine.

Yet it's not as simple as that - going along to your doctor, having a variety of noxious materials (like mercury) injected into your bloodstream, and resting assured that all is well.

The first complication comes when you suffer from vaccine side effects. I have written about about these side effects several times over the years, the last time in July 2019. Doctors know about these serious side effects. They are readily available within their own medical literature, not least in the Patient Information Leaflets (PIL) that accompanies each vaccine. Moreover, these side effects can be serious, and as the link above shows, quoting the PIL, ends up with the warning that the vaccines can cause death!

The second complication is that the vaccine does not work. Perhaps the drug company has chosen the wrong strain of the flu virus, or some other excuse. So after every flu season statistics are produced (but not widely publicised) showing that the effectiveness of the vaccine has been severely limited. I last wrote about this in detail in January 2018.

This leads directly to the third complication, as described on 4 December 2019 in MIMS. "Flu antivirals approved for NHS prescribing as cases increase" (my emphasis). So the vaccine isn't working (yet again) this year, but doctors can now prescribe antiviral drugs (Tamiflu) for both the prevention and treatment of influenza. They now have a second line of treatment for you. But the 'complication'  arises when we see that Tamiflu is also known to be both ineffective, and causes very serious side effects. Indeed, the drug, also known as oseltamivir, has already been withdrawn or banned in some countries.

The fourth complication is that it's not just YOU who have to be vaccinated against flu - it's everyone else! Doctors call it "Herd Immunity". So even though you are vaccinated, you are still at risk - because other people aren't. The solution (sic) to this, according to pharmaceutical medicine, is to make vaccination mandatory, to force you to have a vaccination that is both dangerous AND ineffective. Forced vaccination is already becoming a reality in some parts of the world.

So when dealing with influenza, as with most other illnesses, pharmaceutical medicine struggles to provide any treatment that is safe, effective, straightforward and uncomplicated.

With Homeopathy, everything is so much simpler.

First, you can avoid getting the flu by taking a simple remedy regularly, every month or so, throughout the flu season. I have described the simple process in this blog.

Second, if you forget to do this, and should you contract flu, there are a number of homeopathic remedies that will treat (reduce, ease and shorten) the symptoms, and reduce your suffering. I have written about these remedies here, providing simple descriptions about when they should be used. No home should be without these remedies.

That's why I don't have to worry about the flu. It is a dreadful illness. Many years ago, before I became a homeopath, both my wife and I had fully-fledged flu over the Christmas period. Neither of us have ever felt so bad, and for so long. Neither of us want to go through it again. So we now rely entirely and completely on homeopathy. It's just so easy!

POSTSCRIPT
It is only yesterday that I wrote this blog, yet I already need to write this postscript. Why? Today, it has been announced that an outbreak of bird flu in Suffolk will lead to a mass slaughter of 27,000 chickens. So is this another 'complication' to add to the four I outlined yesterday?

Pharmaceutical medicine has no answer to influenza, of whatever sort it might be. So when "a number of the birds" were found to have the H5 strain of avian flu on a Suffolk chicken farm, it panicked the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Panic is a regular response of conventional, drug based medicine. It knows that if there is an outbreak of any illness it has little or nothing to offer. It is the ideal breeding ground for panic! So, in this case, and as these are only (sic) chickens - cull them - cull them all. And set up a 1km (0.6 mile) exclusion zone around the farm to limit the risk of the disease spreading.

I feel sorry for the chickens, who have to die because of a disease that homeopathy could deal with, easily, by adding a homeopathic remedy to their water supply. But of course, Defra would not think of doing so. It's not just that the government department is controlled by conventional vets. The law of the land states that animals cannot be treated with homeopathy. Conventional vets have been given a monopoly in the treatment of animals, and 27,000 chickens are now going to pay the awful price.
What a faff! How senseless! What nonsense!

It is time that we all began to see through the hopelessness and helplessness of pharmaceutical medicine. 
It has little or nothing to offer in the treatment of any disease - not just influenza - and not just for chickens.
