Greed, power, the medical pharmaceutical complex and even organized religion (all good examples of greed and power) appear to be destroying our society, our physical and emotional health and wealth, and are corrupting more and more people every day.
The government needs to begin to protect its citizens instead of protecting the interests of the big businesses they were designed to regulate.
The dental associations, medical associations, diabetes associations, dietetics association and cancer associations either cover up sugars deadly effects, or else stopped talking about the hazards of sugar after huge donations were given to them by the sugar industry and the sweetened food corporate giants.
We must always look at total overall effects and not minuscule supposed benefits.
My favorite quotations, which clearly explain WHY we have these problems with both physicians, dentists, pharmaceutical manufacturers’s, registered dieticians and big business are as follows:
It Is Impossible for Anyone to Begin to Learn What He Thinks He Already Knows.
It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
Beliefs that are not true, remain untrue regardless of how strong the beliefs are, how many initials the believers have after their names, or how well known or highly respected the believers may be. David Getoff 2001
There is a principle which is a bar against all information,
What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know,
Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period.
If fire retardant chemicals on children’s clothing and on our furniture, may reduce deaths by 100 persons per year, but increase incurable neurological conditions and deaths by many thousands per year, THEY SHOULD NOT BE USED.
Children may grow up to become better, more well adjusted adults (and parents) when they get properly reprimanded for things they do wrong as children. This may include a yell or a slap from a parent with the possible resultant crying, (generally from the idea of being slapped not from pain), so long as it is not taken to the point of being cruel or too severe. I feel that it is entirely possible that it IS NOT our violent TV shows and movies which are to blame for escalating violence in our society.
There was plenty of violence in these areas in the 50's and 60's when I was growing up. Our problems may instead stem from other equally disturbing problems in this increasingly PC society.
A few include:
The (sort of) opposite end of the spectrum is also causing problems. If a teacher sees that a student needs comforting for some reason, the poor teacher is afraid for their job lest they do something good, like give the student a helpful comforting hug. Hugs and human touch even have research as to their benefits and yet OH NO! Don’t touch that student or you may be brought up on charges, since you might have done so as a sexual advance. Good lord, our society is falling apart with nonsensical political correctness issues being at the forefront of the problem.
Politics is so warped, that even when a two term president leaves our country in a financial disaster, the new president is already being blamed for what the past president left him. If every large corporation elected a new president and then did not give the new president at least a year to see if he/she appeared to be able to do a better job, they would be electing a new one 12 times a year and soon me bankrupt since nothing major can be done that quickly. We badly need a third party with candidates who care more about our country and our constitution. The two we have now might just as well be rolled into one and called the “we only care about ourselves and the special interest groups”, party.
If artificial sweeteners have been shown to NOT HELP IN WEIGHT REDUCTION based on multiple scientific studies, they should NOT BE ALLOWED to be used in weight loss foods and should be required to tell the truth.
If the best examination of all available research on handguns (published in More Guns, Less Crime by Professor John Lott) clearly shows that Legal handgun ownership laws distinctly REDUCE violent crime rates in every state studied, then we should not keep telling the public the opposite.
If the FDA continues to ban the use of valid, proven, published research on nutrients, claiming that whenever a food or supplement is shown to help in any disease, it is then automatically classified as an unapproved drug, the FDA needs to have their hands slapped and their powers reduced in this area.
If research CLEARLY shows that sugar consumption greatly increases the incidence of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.,the public, the completely misled medical profession, and the dieticians need to be required to learn this and reverse the ignorant nonsense they tell their patients.
If a low fat diet has NOT been shown to aid in weight loss, but a high fat diet has, then the public and our physicians need to learn this.
If the research clearly shows that our elderly live the healthiest and the longest lives when they have HIGHER cholesterol, then physicians must STOP prescribing cholesterol lowering drugs for the elderly or they should lose their licenses.
If an aspirin a day has NOT been shown to extend life, but simply to alter the cause of death, the public should be told and the medical profession should be made to read the research instead of receiving their “education” from drug company marketing representatives.
If vaccinations HAVE NOT been properly researched, and may be CAUSING more health conditions then they “might” be preventing, the public and the medical profession need to be shown this clinical evidence and research. Informed consent needs to be given BEFORE any vaccination.
To learn the facts that I and other informed professionals know about vaccinations, but that both you and our physicians are NOT being taught, I refer you to do some exceptional clinical findings and research.
