Homeopathy. Amazing events in Cuba

Amazing things happen when homeopathy is used to treat disease! And yet, such is the block placed on 'good' health news by mainstream media organisations, the general public never get to hear about it. Just imagine the furore if recent events in Cuba were the result of a new, miracle conventional drug!

* In Cuba, every year, 100s of 1000s contract Leptospirosis, an infectious disease transmitted mainly by rats in flooded areas. In bad cases, it can cause kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, and respiratory disease. And each year, many Cubans die from the disease.
* Annually, ConMed vaccines cost Cuba about US$3,000,000 (a lot of money for a poor country), and this to vaccinate about 773,000 of the most 'at risk' people, who live in areas most subject to the devastation of seasonal hurricanes.
* In 2008, a homeopathic nosode, Leptospira 200c was given to about 2.4 million people, at a cost of US$200,000 - both a significant increase in coverage, and a significant decrease in cost.
* The epidemiology surveillance that followed showed a dramatic decrease in morbidity, well below the levels predicted following what had been an exceptionally bad hurricane year. And there were no deaths.

(For more details, see Homeopathy in Practice, Autumn 2009).

Given such amazing events, any rational person might have been expected to be excited, and the Media might have been expected to fall over themselves to bring us the news. Certainly any scientist worthy of the name might have been interested in looking into this further. And science journals might be expected to jump at the chance of publishing the statistics produced, and made available, by the Finlay Institute in Cuba. But no, none of this has happened.

The deafening silence that has ensued stands testiment to the power of the Big Pharma companies, their influence and control over national governments, and their control of mainstream media. The world of medical 'science', and the main scientific journals themselves, have said little or nothing. Not really a surprise, I suppose, as they were 'bought' long ago by Big Pharma money.

The fact that a simple, cheaply produced, easily administered homeopathic remedy can produce stunning results is brilliant news for our health. But it is certainly not good news for the vested interests of the ConMed world, which after all is relying increasingly on new, expensive vaccines to support its profits.
