Medicine has denied the science of nutrition since the earlier 1900s. This because there is not a lot of money to be made from non-patentable nutrients. Science has shown that nutrition or getting enough vitamins and minerals will treat and prevent chronic disease. Doctors are trained in medical school to ignore this science. This has allowed the “great invisible hand” of economics to create the largest segment of our gross domestic product (GDP) as the healthcare sector (about 18% of GDP or almost one in five people in the US derive their income from healthcare). The government has continued to allow this growth in the medical economy because wealth creating manufacturing jobs have been moved out of the country and healthcare has been adopted as a poor substitute.
There is not settled science on manmade global warming. The climate change appears to be more coordinated with the intensity of the sun than with what humans are doing. There does appear to be a move afoot to go after people that do not agree about the science. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse has said, in comparing how the tobacco industry treated science, “Under President Clinton, the Department of Justice brought and won a civil RICO action against the tobacco industry for its fraud. Under President Obama, the Department of Justice has done nothing so far about the climate denial scheme.” Attorney General Loretta Lynch has responded, “This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether it meets the criteria for which we could take action on.” If there is so much upset over science that is not settled, how can we deny the science of nutrition without acting? Shouldn’t all people responsible be held accountable. If we are allowing over 1,000 deaths per day from just vitamin D deficiency per Dr. William Grant, then shouldn’t the Secretary of Health and Human Services be charged? What about all the doctors, scientist, and medical insurance people? Shouldn’t they be charged for fraud and criminally negligent manslaughter?
Criminally Negligent Manslaughter : It seems that responsible parties could be charged with criminally negligent manslaughter because of the “taking of an unreasonable and high degree of risk.” The risk (denial of the science of nutrition) is being taken, to prevent a perceived failure of the economy if there was a sudden rush of health with proper nutrition. What an interesting and destructive conundrum. What a great opportunity to take away much misery and pain in the population. Proper nutrition for general wellness and treatment of chronic disease with nutrition could resolve opiate abuse and spur a surge in every day effectiveness. When I think of the suffering, pain, and death it breaks my heart. We have all been victims of power brokers.
The lack of agreement on the science of medicine is being allowed with the understanding that medicine is not science but art. At least that is the weak excuse that is being used. The population is being played like ping pong balls for the benefit of the medical/medical insurance industry. The propaganda about nutrition that happens in medical school is then relayed to the general population by doctors. Our smartest and best educated are being used like puppets. Power centers pull the doctors strings and the marionette plays for the general population. If you do not agree with your doctor, then you must be an idiot. It was such stage craft when Obama was trying to get Obamacare approved. He dressed a bunch of people in lab coats and put them on the White House lawn. How can I be wrong, look at all these people in lab coats—you’ve got be kidding me! And the politicians wonder why the population is so upset.
Doctors mostly are victims also. Duped into believing that patented medicine is the only way, they eventually just become a part of the system. Like a kidnapped victim begins to become assimilated to a kidnapper after a significant amount of time in captivity. We, as the medical consuming public, fall into lock step and believe that there is no other way than what the doctor tells us.
This is a very complicated problem with many power centers and with a century of misdirection. It will take strong leadership to break us free of this downward spiral. A large healthcare sector of GDP means that we are headed for a significant downfall. To keep and maintain a large market for a large healthcare sector means that there must be a lot of illness, suffering, and pain. I was a victim of the suffering for three decades of my life. As an engineer, I read research papers and determined the vitamins and minerals needed to heal from chronic disease. There should be no problem with doctors doing the same if it were not for the forced assimilation. Only when the government reaches consensus of how nutrition should be delivered in food and medicine will we begin to heal and our economy improve. Perhaps the better solution would be for government to just get out of the way. The government that is to protect us from criminals has become the criminal actor. I am more than willing to forgive all the manipulation and propaganda if our leaders will make policies that gives us health. –Pandemic Survivor
