The pharmaceutical medical establishment are masters of turning failure into triumph. They have had lots of practice over the years.
- 'wonder' drugs' and 'miracle cures' that have had to be abandoned; but only (they say) because they have come up with something better to replace them,
- cancer, diabetes, dementia, autism, arthritis, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and most other chronic diseases, have risen to epidemic levels; but people are surviving longer now with the disease.
Organ Transplantation and Limb Replacement surgery may be brilliant. But these operations are required only following years of failed medical treatment.
Patients who require them will all have been treated with ineffective and toxic pharmaceutical drugs for years, often decades, during which time their condition have only worsened.
Indeed, most of the brilliant surgical operations that have been developed over the last 100 years or so have successfully protected conventional medicine from having to admit that much of its drug treatment is not only ineffective, but toxic, and unsafe, and usually exacerbates the original illness until it becomes a much more serious ill-health and disease.
There is only one way of avoiding the spiralling need for this kind of surgery, and that is to invest in a competent medical system that produces good patient outcomes.
- Investing in a medical system that can successfully treat hearts, kidneys, livers, and other organs before they need replacing, and which can help keep them functioning properly.
- Investing in a medical system that can deal with painful limbs without the patient having to take toxic painkillers for decades, drugs that eventually, inevitably, leads to limbs breaking down.
Only then will the need for transplantation gradually decrease, and at the same time, reduce the need to increase the number of organ donors.
Transplantation surgery are brilliant achievements. But they are needed only following years of failed medical treatment. And as pharmaceutical medicine continues to fail the only certainty is that the demand for transplantation will increase, as it has done during the last 50 years.
Organ transplantation and limb replacement does not represent medical progress, it represents medical failure.
