WHO? Do pharmaceutical drugs cause disease?

I recently wrote a blog entitled "Cancer? Bad Luck? The environment? Or Big Pharma drug side effect?" The purpose of the blog was to highlight that whenever the cause of epidemic levels of cancer now haunting us are discussed the role of pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines are rarely, if ever considered.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is the world's leading health organisation. It is part of the United Nations organisation, and came into being on 7th April 1948. It now has a staff over over 7,000 people, and works in over 150 countries. It states, as its primary role, to direct and coordinate international health within the United Nation's system.

It is, of course, dominated by the conventional medical establishment.

So what does WHO believe to be causing the epidemic of cancer? They have written a fact sheet, dated February 2015, which outline their views. First, they outline the size of the current problem.
  • "Cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with approximately 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012."
  • "The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades.
  • "Among men, the 5 most common sites of cancer diagnosed in 2012 were lung, prostate, colorectum, stomach, and liver cancer.
  • "Among women the 5 most common sites diagnosed were breast, colorectum, lung, cervix, and stomach cancer.
The fact sheet says that cancer is now a leading cause of death worldwide "accounting for 8.2 million deaths in 2012." They give the following figures for the most common causes of cancer death:
  • lung (1.59 million deaths)
  • liver (745 000 deaths)
  • stomach (723 000 deaths)
  • colorectal (694 000 deaths)
  • breast (521 000 deaths)
  • oesophageal cancer (400 000 deaths)
As far as causation is concern, WHO outlines 5 behavioural and dietary risks contributing, they say, to about one-third of cancer deaths:
  1. High body mass index (overweight, obesity)
  2. Low fruit and vegetable intake (diet)
  3. Lack of physical activity (exercise)
  4. Tobacco use (20% of global cancer deaths, 70% of lung cancer deaths)
  5. Alcohol use.
They go on to say that cancer-causing viral infections are responsible for up to 20% of cancer deaths in low- and middle-income countries). In particular, they point to the Hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and some types of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which, they say, increase the risk for liver and cervical cancer respectively.

They also talk about other factors, including:
  • physical carcinogens, such as ultraviolet and ionizing radiation;
  • chemical carcinogens, such as asbestos, components of tobacco smoke, aflatoxin (a food contaminant) and arsenic (a drinking water contaminant);
  • biological carcinogens, such as infections from certain viruses, bacteria or parasites.
WHO also mentions that age is a factor, that "the incidence of cancer rises dramatically with age, most likely due to a build up of risks for specific cancers that increase with age. The overall risk accumulation is combined with the tendency for cellular repair mechanisms to be less effective as a person grows older."

Yet there is not a single mention of pharmaceutical drugs. 

Not a single one! 

Even though drugs and vaccines are a known cause of cancer!

What does this demonstrate? It shows clearly that WHO are not independent of the influence of the  powerful Pharmaceutical companies. The omission shows that WHO is merely passing on the message of the drug companies. It would appear, they are not at liberty to mention that the use of conventional drugs and vaccines are a known, indeed an accepted cause of cancer.

The WHO Fact Sheet then goes on to consider 'modifying and avoiding the risk factors', and talks about 'prevention strategies'. We can, they say, stop smoking, lose weight, eat a healthier diet, exercise more, drink less alcohol, avoid air pollution.

Of course we can! And if we were told, openly and honestly about the cancer-inducing properties of so many pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, we could avoid these too!

But we are not being told about this! Yet avoiding conventional medical treatments, for other illnesses and diseases, and instead looking for safer alternative medical treatments that have no such 'side effects', would be equally wise! WHO then goes on to explain their (worthy) motives and objectives.

          "In 2013, WHO launched the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases 2013-2020 that aims to reduce by 25% premature mortality from cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases by 2025. Some of the voluntary targets are most relevant for cancer prevention, including target 5 aimed at reducing the prevalence of tobacco use by 30%."

Perhaps so. Yet if WHO, alongside our Governments, our Media, and our doctors, were to openly and honestly tell us that one significant cause of cancer were pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, these objectives might be more easily achieved.
