Big Pharma’s War on Health
We have given the largest business on Earth – the pharmaceutical industry – full control over our health. Since decades ago, Big Pharma funds virtually all research into disease and cure and controls academics and healthcare professionals.
In China, people used to pay their family doctors a modest monthly fee, but when they got ill, they stopped until the doctor helped them get better. Such a system tries to keep people healthy out of self-interest.
In socialist countries, medical professionals traditionally earned little. Everybody made about the same, and even car mechanics and taxi drivers made more than medical doctors. Because a medical career as a researcher, surgeon or physician did not result in money or power, the only people pursuing it were genuinely interested in the medical field and making people better. Such a system tries to keep people healthy out of love for the patient and the profession itself.
Enter capitalism. In a free market, pharmaceutical companies would compete in finding the best cures and sell them at competitive prices. They wouldn’t get very rich because people, with their help, would generally be healthy. The causes for diseases like MS, Alzheimer, ALS, Fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, ME, Thyroiditis, IBD, Arthritis, CFS, Psoriasis, FMS, Schizophrenia and thousands of others with unknown etiology would be identified and an effective cure would be developed. There would be no need for symptom relief from cradle to grave. There would be little profit in pharmacy. The modern healthcare monopoly has nothing to gain by keeping people healthy – on the contrary, the more symptom relievers sold, the more seaworthy the shareholders’ yachts.
Since the early 1930’s, the Rockefeller family privatized the US healthcare industry, and similar takeovers occured in other Western countries. The result was a cartel controlling:
All medical textbooks,
All scientific research into the causes of disease,
All scientific research into the creation of medicines,
All published information about medical issues in popular and professional literature,
All national and international laws governing medicine and medicines,
All production, pricing and distribution of all medicines and soon, with Codex Alimentarius, even vitamins and minerals.
Their profits are enormous because their pricing strategy has nothing to do with the cost of developing medicines – it simply reflects what the market will bear, and all costs incurred in securing a patent monopoly on the drug’s derivatives are passed on to the market.
They deliberately do not delve into the real causes of disease, because that would lead to the slaughter of the goose with the golden eggs: The need for eternal symptom relief.
They control the careers of professors and scientists. They make and break politicians. They bribe “expert witnesses” into saying whatever they want in court. Politicians, judges and the people don’t understand this topic anyway. They can act with impunity. They fool us into thinking they are there to help us. They are the world’s most powerful lobby and they will not rest until every human being on the planet is their slave. Only when we are medicated from cradle to grave, only when we will be wholly dependent on their expensive pills, only when most of the money we make goes into their pockets they will be satisfied.
They are continuously on the lookout for promising ways of curing diseases, so that they can hire the people involved, purchase the patents and bury them six feet deep. The last thing they want is for the people to find out that the underlying cause of many chronic diseases is an ordinary bacterial infection. Whenever a deceased MS-patient’s brain is autopsied, Borrelia Burgdorferi spirochetes are found. MS responds positively to antibiotics that penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Yet Big Pharma doesn’t just ridicule pioneering physicians in that field by means of disparaging articles in medical magazines and journals, they go as far as suing them for malpractice.
It is the same with almost all other chronic diseases with “unknown” cause. The causes have already been found, but are kept under wraps by all means at their disposal – financial, legal, political and educational – not to forget the incessant disinformation and propaganda about how most ilnesses are all “auto-immune” (as if God or evolution wouldn’t be able to eliminate such flaws) and how they are “spending large sums on doubling our medical knowledge every few years”.
There is a reason that Big Pharma has stopped developing new antibiotics. There is a reason they have destroyed promising technologies to fight bacteria like the bacteriophage institute in Tbilisi, Georgia. (Bacteriophages are specific viruses that kill specific bacteria). Big Pharma knows that almost all diseases with an unknown cause are in fact caused by remarkably resilient bacteria – mycoplasma’s – sequestering in immuno-privilleged sites like the central nervous system or the joints.
There is a reason why there is an ever-increasing taboo on the use of intracellular antibiotics with the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. This is because they cure or greatly improve most of the chronic diseases of unknown etiology. Ideally, to Big Pharma, all use of antibiotics would be banned, due to the alleged threat of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and other emerging antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus could also be called “multiple-resistant” or “multi-drug resistant”, but in fact that’s nonsense. There are plenty of antibiotics, or antibiotics “combo’s”, that take care of it. Roxithromycin with Trimetoprim is but one of them. The problem is, antibiotics are given too little, too late, too short and too few. That has in fact caused the problem of MRSA in the first place.
The pharmaceutical mafia is only interested in making a quick buck, and keeping us all sick enough to need symptom relievers, but not too sick not to be able to pay our health insurance and taxes – which for a great part also disappears into their pockets.
The price of generic medicines largely depends on the cost of the raw materials because production is mainly automatic and unattended. Then why are western drugs sometimes a HUNDRED times more expensive than their equivalents in India or Thailand? One of those medicines are the life-saving antimycotics (antifungals) Fluconazole and Itraconazole. In the West, Itraconazole costs 18 bucks for a 200 mg pill, while in India you can buy a kilo for 1000 dollars. That’s a price difference of almost 100 times. In the West, people regularly die in hospital of a nosocomial systemic fungal infection. Usually, these people are left to die because threating a chronic systemic fungal infection at Western prices would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
We have grown up with charities telling us that for a dollar a day, we can save the life of a child in the Third World by giving it the medicine it needs. Nowadays, medicine that costs a dollar a day in the Third World could save the life of a loved one, but it’s a crime to import it.
