Natl. Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society skewered in new book by leading cancer expert

Truth about the corruption of these organizations is finally coming out to the public.  Our government is controlled by Wall Street corporations and the military.  As for Big Pharma, the A.M.A., the Cancer Institute and Cancer Society, etc. finding cures for cancer, forget about it.  They are all in cahoots together to make the lucrative medical business even more lucrative -- not to actually cure the sick.  Think about it -- a cure for cancer is not in their best interests.  Alternative treatments that actually cure cancer immediately spur government witch hunts against the poor doctors/researchers who discovered them. See the excellent new documentary movie about this: www.burzynskimovie.com/ 

Let's face it, folks -- we are not living in a country with a government "of the people, for the people, by the people" (if we ever did).  I'm thankful for the Internet, which gives us access to information about real cures.  I hope that won't soon be taken from us with regulation by the military/industrial complex that has taken over our government, as Eisenhower sternly warned us about in his farewell speech to the nation. See short video:

His somber warning was strongly stated:
  "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.  The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals."

Eisenhower's warning was all the more powerful coming from a five-star general.  As his grandson David Eisenhower has stated: "Eisenhower's farewell address, in the final analysis, is about internal threats posed by vested interests to the democratic process," he says. "But above all, it is addressed to citizens — and about citizenship."

But we paid no attention to his warnings.  And now it is too late.  The takeover of our government is complete, and we live in an oligarchy instead of a democratic republic.  If we are diagnosed with cancer or other diseases that Big Pharma assures us they are working on, we know we can't depend on them for real cures.  We must do our own online research while we still can.

A new book by leading cancer expert, Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, skewers the National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society and blames the organizations for America losing the war against cancer.

The cancer drug industry is even more lucrative than mammography with annual sales over $12 billion. The intimate association between ACS and the pharmaceutical industry is illustrated, Epstein said, by the unbridled aggression which ACS directs at its critics.

"ACS maintains a Committee on Unproven Methods of Cancer Management, which periodically reviews unorthodox or alternative therapies," Epstein wrote. "This committee is comprised of volunteer health care professionals, carefully selected proponents of orthodox, expensive, and usually toxic drugs patented by major pharmaceutical companies, and opponents of alternative or unproven therapies that are generally cheap, and minimally toxic."

Periodically, the committee updates its statements on unproven methods, which are then widely disseminated to clinicians, cheerleader science writers, and the public. Once a clinician or oncologist becomes associated with unproven methods, he or she is blackmailed by the cancer establishment. Funding for the accused quack becomes inaccessible, followed by systematic harassment.

"The highly biased ACS witch-hunts against alternative practitioners are in striking contrast to its extravagant and uncritical endorsement of conventional toxic chemotherapy. This despite the absence of any objective evidence of improved survival rates or reduced mortality following chemotherapy for all but some relatively rare cancers."

The cancer industry's favor of pharmaceutical products is evidenced, Epstein said, "by the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved approximately 40 patented drugs for cancer treatment, while it has yet to approve a single nonpatented alternative drug."

According to Epstein, "Dr. Samuel Broder, NCI director from 1989 to 1995, frankly admitted, in a 1998 Washington Post interview, that 'the NCI has become what amounts to a government pharmaceutical company.' Taxpayers have funded R & D and expensive clinical trials for over two-thirds of cancer drugs on the market. These drugs are given, with exclusive rights, to the industry, which sells them at inflated prices.
