How would you feel if your doctor were bribed to give you a drug?

Hello, Novartis. The pharmaceutical giant has just been fined $50 million by the government of South Korea for bribing doctors to prescribe the company’s drugs.

FiercePharma reports: “Last year, prosecutors in the country [Korea] raided Novartis offices to gather documents and account books. South Korean officials later indicted a half-dozen Novartis execs, as well as more than a dozen doctors and five medical journal heads…The Korea Times says the criminal trial is now underway.”

A Novartis spokesperson called the crime “in violation of our policies and inconsistent with our culture…”

Really? There’s more.

FiercePharma continues: “Outside of Korea, Novartis faces separate bribery claims in Greece, where an official earlier this month said ‘thousands’ of people could be implicated.”

“The company faced other allegations in Turkey, which it now considers ‘unsubstantiated,’ and paid $25 million to U.S. authorities last year to settle a bribery investigation in China.”

Sounds like bribery might be central to the culture of Novartis.

You walk into a doctor’s office. He makes a diagnosis and writes out a prescription for a drug. Unknown to you, he’s been paid off to tell you to take the drug…

14 Ways to Protect Yourself from the New World Order (NWO) Agenda

The price of ignorance towards the New World Order (NWO) agenda could be very costly. The psychopathic ruling elite own the banks, weapons, gold, drugs and oil, while having the politicians, police, military and mass media etc. in their pockets, and are further tightening that unrelenting grip on the control of our money, health, food, water, air, and all the related science and technology, for complete domination over the human populace. Fall for any of its carefully cultivated illusions and you could end up broke, losing property, seriously ill, or even end up dead.

In response, this is my heartfelt advice on how to prepare for your survival in the unpredictable, not too distant (potential) future. Here are 14 ways to protect you, your family and friends from the escalating NWO agenda…

9 Uses For Hemp You Won’t Learn From Mainstream Media

Once upon a time it was illegal for farmers to not grow hemp. Then came corporations that felt hemp threatened their profits. The oil industry, pharmaceutical companies, plastics manufacturers, the food industry, lumber companies, paper producers, fabric manufacturers – and many more – felt that hemp was unfair competition, as it was an easy-to-grow, all-in-one plant with many gifts for humanity. Hence, the demonization of hemp in the newspapers that were owned by fearful corporations.

But the public is finding the evidence is in – what serves corporations does not always swerve life or well-being. Therefore, it’s just about time we “Just say no” to naughty corporate corruption and reintroduce this life-saving plant back into our country – and the world.

The U.S. government holds the patent on cannabis as a cure for cancer. What’s with that?!?!? While our loved ones have died of cancer (and its modern medical treatments: chemo, radiation and surgery) and have left us in morbid debt to the medical industry, they could have avoided all that pain and sorrow if they had been allowed to ingest hemp oil instead?

These are the most newsworthy benefits of industrial hemp corporate media won’t teach you about.

Although the negative stigma associated with cannabis has lessened in recent years – especially since THC- and CBD-rich oils were found to be a powerful aid in fighting cancer – it still hasn’t garnered full support from the public.

This is unfortunate, as hemp is one of the most versatile (and longest cultivated) crops on the planet and can be used for a variety of practical and economical uses. According to some sources, the crop is humanity’s answer to creating a cleaner energy source that can replace nuclear power, removing radioactive water from the soil, and eliminating smog from skies in industrialized areas. In addition, nationwide hemp production (which creates more oxygen than standard crops) could eliminate deforestation by converting current paper to hemp paper, which can be recycled up to 8 times. Compare this to wood pulp, which is only recyclable up to 3 times. Finally, hemp seeds are incredibly nutritious and can even serve as a suitable feed for animals and livestock…

Dr. Ralph Moss on “The Cancer Industry” – The Business of Blood Money

Cancer is big business and knowledge claims on any treatments that earn money and, conversely, on any treatments that do not earn money for the drug companies, are never neutral. Dr Ralph Moss served as the Assistant Director of Public Affairs at America’s most famous cancer research institution, Memorial Sloan Kettering, in Manhattan. He knows the cancer industry inside out. Hear what he has to say and judge for yourself the quality of the evidence against the effectiveness of Vitamin B17: Moss: Short

American Medical Association Complicity with Big Tobacco

Mainstream medicine’s permissive attitude towards smoking in the face of overwhelming evidence can be an object lesson for contemporary medical collusion with the food industry.

Doctor’s Note

If the balance of scientific evidence favors plant-based eating, why isn’t the medical profession at the forefront of encouraging people to eat healthier? That’s the question this video tries to answer. Looking back to smoking in the 1950s, you can see how all of society, the government, and the medical profession itself could be in favor of habits that decades of science had already overwhelmingly condemned as harmful.

Use of term “FDA” should always trigger a warning

Monsanto tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety of their products; it is the job of the FDA. The FDA tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety; it is the job of the food producer. Patricia says it’s your job to ensure the care and feeding of your body… and mind.

If you put low-lead gas into a car that requires diesel fuel, it will not run well – and if you put diesel fuel into a car that requires low-lead gas, it will not run well. If you put sugar in your tank, it will destroy your engine. Try running it on grains and other plants sprayed with glyphosate, the deadly ingredient in Roundup.

Please watch what you put into your mouth very carefully, because if you put commercially (as opposed to organically) grown foods into your mouth, you might just be taking your life into your own hands. If your body is less than radiantly healthy, you might want to check what is going into it. And what is the rational response when one discovers s/he is being poisoned by industrial foods?… to stop patronizing the criminal organizations that are poisoning the world’s farms. Don’t buy it; don’t eat it. You owe it to yourself… and you’ll save when you don’t have to buy pharmaceutical drugs to “cure” whatever it is that ails you, which was caused by .

Grow a garden… without chemicals. Just soak the soil, put a seed down, cover it with a little soil, keep watered until it sprouts and then water gently after that. Things grow! Nature is not stupid. It’s been doing quite well for thousands of years without chemicals that require hazmat suits. The yield on organic farms is no less than that on farms sprayed with chemicals. We’ve been had, folks. Let’s turn it around. In WWII, everyone had a “Victory Garden”. Let us now declare our victory over a food system that has made us sick. And now to Jon Rappoport’s article on “our friend”, the Food and Drug Administration.

The use of the term “FDA” should be the trigger for immediate investigation, whenever it appears. For example, “The FDA has ruled (name of drug) is safe and effective.”…

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “Is US health really the best in the world?”: Medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans per year. That’s a million killings per decade.

Every one of the killer drugs is certified as safe and effective by the FDA, the Agency tasked with protecting the health of the American people.

Example: Vioxx was approved for use by the FDA on May 20, 1999. Eventually, it caused 88,000-140,000 cases of heart disease. Conservative death-toll number? 60,000. (An estimated 58,000 American troops died during the Vietnam War.)…

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Kavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies (“Former FDA Reviewer Speaks Out About Intimidation, Retaliation and Marginalizing of Safety,” 7/29/2012).

Does Conventional Medical Training Destroy Empathy?

A surprisingly consistent body of research exists indicating that conventional medical training actually reduces practitioner empathy. What is worse, the decline in empathy appears even more pronounced at the time that the curriculum shifts towards patient-care activities.

In one study published in 2009 in the journal Academic Medicine entitled “The devil is in the third year: a longitudinal study of erosion of empathy in medical school,” the authors conclude:

“It is ironic that the erosion of empathy occurs during a time when the curriculum is shifting toward patient-care activities; this is when empathy is most essential.”

In another, higher-powered systematic review published in the same journal last year entitled “Empathy decline and its reasons: a systematic review of studies with medical students and residents,” researchers looked at data from 1990-2010, which included 18 studies, and found:

“The five longitudinal and two cross-sectional studies of residents showed a decrease in empathy during residency. The studies pointed to the clinical practice phase of training and the distress produced by aspects of the “hidden,” “formal,” and “informal” curricula as main reasons for empathy decline.”

They Concluded

“The results of the reviewed studies, especially those with longitudinal data, suggest that empathy decline during medical school and residency compromises striving toward professionalism and may threaten health care quality.”

Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own takes readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief – into true healing.

Read the introduction and first chapter of Kelly’s upcoming book by signing a mailing list at http://kellybroganmd.com/book/a-mind-of-your-own/. From A Mind of Your Own by Kelly Brogan MD

Dr. Candace Pert, author of Molecules of Emotion (and discoverer of opiate receptors) was one of the first official scientific pioneers of this radical (and practical) body-mind approach. She has a wonderful sense of humor and aims it at “lamestream medicine” and the scientific community.

Listen in the video below when she says, “It’s all in the breathing.” Indeed it is. The word “spirit” means “breath” and it has long been said that, “Spirit is the healer.”Other Pert-isms: “The body is the unconscious mind” and “God is a neuropeptide,” or as it says in the bible, “God is Love.”

Unfortunately, Candace died suddenly in 2013 at the age of 67. Fortunately, you can watch videos on the internet, of her speaking.
