The Politics of Cancer
By R. Webster Kehr,Chairman, Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc.
Introduction to the Politics of CancerEvery year hundreds of thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer. To almost all of these people, the diagnosis of cancer is considered to be a guarantee of massive amounts of pain followed by almost certain death.
But such a diagnosis does not have to lead to any pain or even death. Some people, when they are diagnosed with cancer, have no fear of cancer and only consider cancer to be a minor nuisance!!
Why is it that some people greatly fear cancer and others consider cancer to be only a minor nuisance? The answer is information. Some people have good information about cancer and others have intentionally bad information about cancer and cancer treatments.
How can you tell whether you have good information or bad information? Consider the source of the information and study the claims. There is almost always an inverse relationship between money and truth. In other words, the more money an organization has, the less likely you will get any truth out of that organization, in almost all cases.
For example, the mass media receives many billions of dollars every year from the pharmaceutical industry in advertising revenues. Anyone who has not been living in a cave all their life knows that the media are very loyal to their major advertisers.
Both the media and the pharmaceutical industry are worth massive billions of dollars. Can you expect any truth from either industry?
Both groups are interested in money and the media is more than willing to increase their fortunes by "jumping in bed" with Big Pharma. Thus, while you may think that everything you know about cancer comes from the media, in fact, everything you hear from the media about cancer actually comes from the pharmaceutical industry.
For example, the mass media tells everyone that there is no cure for cancer. The mass media also tells everyone that cancer is so complex that it will take many decades to find a cure for cancer.
Big Pharma supposedly has been "looking" for a cure for cancer for more than 100 years. But for some strange reason they act like it will be another hundred years before a cure is found. During these 200 years (actually it is a "carrot and stick" trick and there will never be a general cure for cancer from Big Pharma) both Big Pharma and Big Medicine will rake in many trillions of dollars!!!
The claims of Big Pharma are nonsense. These are not the claims of people who are experts in cancer, these claims come from businessmen who are only interested in money. The media is nothing but a mouthpiece for Big Pharma because it is more profitable to sell your soul than to tell the truth and help people!!!
Also, you probably think that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is diligently seeking your best interests. Did it ever occur to you that what you hear about the FDA comes from the media. Because everything you hear from the media comes from the pharmaceutical industry, you can rest assured everything you hear about the FDA also comes from the pharmaceutical industry.
The pharmaceutical industry loves the FDA because in 1910 Congress assigned the FDA to be the police force of Big Pharma. Actually, the FDA is more like a mafia than a police force. But you will never hear anything bad about the FDA or the pharmaceutical industry in the media.
The prime purpose of the FDA is to shut down competitors of Big Pharma. But the media tells you that the prime purpose of the FDA is to shut down scam artists. Yes, there are scam artists among the competitors of Big Pharma, but there are also people who know how to cure cancer who are also shut down by the FDA!!
In other words, the FDA does not care whether someone knows how to cure cancer, the FDA shuts down everyone who cuts into the profits of the pharmaceutical industry, even if they know how to cure cancer.
Congress, the media, the FDA and Big Pharma (and many, many others) are in the same bed. The media is telling everyone that both the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA are watching out for your health. Hogwash. What they are doing is looking out for their profits. When a top executive of the FDA retires it is almost certain they will soon be millionaires working for a company who works for Big Pharma.
The Two WorldsThe fact is that cancer is easy to cure, especially for newly diagnosed cancer patients. The concept that there is no cure for cancer and that a cure for cancer is decades away are both totally false and are driven by the lust for money of the pharmaceutical industry and their friends.
There are, in fact, two totally different worlds of information. These two different worlds of information might as well be on different planets because there is zero overlap in information between the two worlds. One world of information is owned and controlled by Big Business. The other world of information is controlled by people who are outside of Big Business and who care about other people.
In one world, cancer is easy to cure. In the other world, cancer is impossible to cure and it will be many decades before there is even a partial cure for cancer. In this world, everyone is told that cancer is a chronic disease because there is no cure.
The media, Congress and the FDA (and the American Cancer Society, which is controlled by oncologists, and almost all other non-profit "cancer research" organizations which are in bed with some organization in Big Pharma or Big Medicine) are all on the world of the pharmaceutical industry. It is a fantasy world which was created by the media. The Savior of the world would refer to their world as a "whited sepulcher" (see Matthew 23:27-33)."
People have been so brainwashed by the world which includes Congress and the media that when they hear something from the second world they don't believe a word of it.
Here is a famous quote about brainwashing the reader should read 10 times and memorize, because it is the essence of what brainwashing is all about. The quote is a reference to the brainwashing in World War II:
•"No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance."Alan Bullock, Hitler and Stalin: Parallel LivesThe purpose of brainwashing is not to convince people; it is to make them into mindless and obedient sheep. Once they are mindless and obedient sheep the slightest indication that someone is thinking "outside the box" immediately brings a massive retaliation either in the form of violence or ridicule.
The "uniform pattern of public utterance" is exactly what our media today has achieved with regards to cancer and all other diseases. Whenever I tell someone I know how to cure cancer, as fast as possible they retreat away from me as if I had some deadly, contagious disease. The "uniform pattern" is working well for Big Media.
It gets worse. In fact, there is a strange paradox in medicine. If you do not fully understand the concept of brainwashing and the concept of this paradox, you will almost certainly die from your cancer!!!
The Deadly Paradox in MedicineThe typical cancer patient who uses orthodox cancer treatments will spend about $350,000 for their treatment and will die. Orthodox cancer treatments are very, very profitable to medical doctors, hospitals, the pharmaceutical industry, the "health" insurance companies, the politicians (e.g. government agencies), the media, etc.
In other words, the corporations and individuals who are leading orthodox medicine are extremely wealthy. They have more money than most people can even dream about having.
Orthodox cancer treatments are designed to make a cancer patient a "long term profit center," meaning cancer treatments are designed not to treat cancer, but to turn cancer into yet another "chronic disease." Their goal is to turn every cancer patient into a lifelong user of chemotherapy.
But the key entity which makes massive amounts of money on cancer patients is the pharmaceutical industry. It is this industry which uses their money to "buy" the favors of the media and many, many other entities. The most important use of this money is to gain the favors of the media (to control information in the media) and to gain the favors of the government agencies (which suppress information outside of the media and harass or arrest those who know how to cure disease). The FDA, like most government agencies, is nothing but the police force of a corporate cartel (i.e. the large pharmaceutical companies - Big Pharma). The FDA is the way Congress pays Big Pharma for their bribes - a free police force paid for by the taxpayers.
Patients who make cancer treatment decisions do so on the basis of what they have heard (or not heard) in the mass media. It is the mass media which controls, directly and indirectly, the information people use to choose between orthodox cancer treatments or alternative cancer treatments.
The primary reason, by a wide margin, that the media glorifies ineffective orthodox cancer treatments is because of a paradox in medicine. This paradox is a direct result of two key facts.
Fact #1: Cancer is a trillion dollar disease to modern medicine because there is a great deal of money in treating cancer as a chronic disease while they pretend there are no cures for cancer and they pretend to be looking for a cure for cancer.
Therefore, those people who have no interest in curing cancer, because curing cancer would cut into their profits, have many, many, many billions of dollars to control the White House (e.g. the FDA, FTC, FCC, etc. appointments), Congress, buy the loyalty of the mass media, etc. etc. For example, any presidential candidate who is not acceptable to the corporate cartels is effectively blacklisted by the media to insure they are not elected (the media itself is a giant cartel which has its own police force - the FCC).
Fact #2: There is very little money in curing cancer with alternative cancer treatments, and there is even less money in telling people how to cure their cancer at home. Thus, there are very few people who know how to cure cancer and most of them make very little money curing cancer, thus this group has a pathetically small amount of money compared to how much money Big Medicine and Big Pharma have!!
While all of this is interesting, the deadly paradox in medicine results from these two facts.
The Deadly Paradox in Medicine: Because the media are whores who sell-out to the highest bidder; the information that is heard by the general public is totally controlled by the people with the most money and the people with the most money have the most money because they have the least concern for human life. Thus, all of the information you hear about cancer comes from those who love your money but have absolutely no concern for your life!!
If you do not clearly understand this paradox you will have almost no chance of surviving your cancer because you will continue to believe what you hear in the media and you will continue to use orthodox cancer treatments!! Understanding this paradox is the first step in the healing process and has been the first step for many decades.
This paradox is why, when you watch television, you see medical doctor shows (by deifying medical doctors they are glorifying drugs), hospital shows, pharmaceutical ads, etc. every time you turn on your television. That is why the vast majority of people have no clue that alternative cancer treatments are far superior to orthodox cancer treatments.
In a nutshell, everything you hear from the media and our government is the result of a bidding process and Big Pharma and Big Medicine can outbid alternative medicine by a factor of about a million to one because they have zero concern for YOUR LIFE!!!
What is the significance of this paradox? The significance is that cancer will always be a chronic disease and there will never be any new cures for cancer found (by orthodox medicine) because it would cut into their vast fortunes to actually cure cancer.
The money received by pretending there is no cure for cancer is why the oncologist-controlled American Cancer Society has a billion dollars of funds to convince people to send them money so they can divert money from people who know how to cure cancer and who are looking for even more effective cures for cancer.
That is why organizations like the American Cancer Society count their contributions in the hundreds of millions of dollars and why organizations like the ICRF count their contributions in the hundreds of dollars.
One of the things we want to do at the ICRF is have staff to answer emails of cancer patients to give them suggestions on which alternative cancer treatment is best for their situation. But the ICRF does not even have enough money to hire a single part-time staff member to answer emails.
Don't ever forget there is very little money in curing cancer and thus the media will never say anything good about effective alternative cancer treatments. If you don't understand this paradox it could cost you your life or the life of a loved one!!
The deadly paradox is real and actually applies to many diseases for which there are already cures.
