..Gambling on the ignorance and suffering of countless people,
their constant fear of pain and disease, and with the help of the
mass-media, this pseudo-science has created the illusion that she
wields mysterious and unlimited powers on which mankind's
salvation depends. So the people of the Western world have
prostrated themselves in awe and servility at her feet, imagining
her as an almighty goddess of peerless beauty, shining with gold
and brocades, to whom common mortals may not even raise their
eyes, lest they be blinded. But if they dared do so, they would
discover that the Emperor hasn't got a stitch on, and is gruesome
to behold...

                          Preface

     The great historian of the Twentieth Century, Dr. Oswald
Spengler, was one those seemingly rare scholars who saw what
American Liberals refuse to see - that the Left is controlled by
its alleged enemy, the malefactors of great wealth. He wrote in
his monumental Decline of the West  (Modern Library, New York,
1945):
     "There is no proletarian, not even a Communist, movement
that has not operated in the interest of money, in the direction
indicated by money, and for the time being permitted by money -
and that without the idealists among its leaders having the
slightest suspicion of the fact."
    This is true of today's socialized medicine, which purports to be
a share-the-wealth program, though in fact it concentrates wealth,
establishes the Establishment (via taxation), eliminates competition,
is policed by the State, to the detriment of the people. The following
quotation gives the horns of the dillemna:
" ... While monopoly control of INDUSTRIES was once the objective
of (such "robber barons" as) J.P. Morgan and J.D. Rockefeller, by
the late nineteenth century the inner sanctums of Wall Street
understood that the most efficient way to gain an unchallenged
monopoly was to "go political" and make society go to work for the
monopolists - UNDER THE NAME OF THE PUBLIC GOOD AND
THE PUBLIC INTEREST. This strategy was detailed in 1906 by
Frederick C. Howe in his Confessions of a Monopolist. Howe,  by
the way, is also a figure in the story of the  Bolshevik Revolution..."
 - Prof. Anthony Sutton,
Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution,
Hoover Institute of War, Revolution and Peace,
Stanford University Press,1974.

In his book Howe had stated:
   "These are the rules of big business. They have superseded the
teachings of our parents and are reducible to a single maxim:
Get a monopoly; let society work for you; and remember that the
best of all BUSINESS is POLITICS, for a legislative grant,
franchise, subsidy or tax exemption is worth more than a Kimberly
or Comstock lode, since it does not require any labour, either
mental or physical for its exploitation..."

                       Some Plain Speech

       A french physician, Prof. Maurice Delort, did some plain
talking at the inaugural session of the Academy de Bourges
(December 16, 1962):
     "Todays medicine is at the end of its road. It can no longer
be transformed, modified, readjusted. Thats been tried too often.
Todays medicine must DIE in order to be reborn. We must prepare
its complete renovation."

      Dr. Bruce Halstead, who suffered from the persecutions of
the Medical Establishment, spoke even more plainly:
       "There will be a medical edition of the Nurnberg Trials.
The atrocities now being committed in the name of orthodox
medicine, the suppression of life-giving scientific data, the
needless loss of lives, mutilation of bodies, and excessive
suffering... will not be tolerated.
       ..Ultimately, these criminals and their political lackeys
will be brought to justice...."
                     -quoted in R. Hovnavian, Medical Dark Ages.

                        More Plain Speech


     Ivan Illich (medical historian), in Limits to Medicine, 1976:
  "THE MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT HAS BECOME THE MAJOR THREAT TO HEALTH."


     "Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized
to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It
makes more people sick than it heals."
                Ivan Illich, on Swiss television, Lugano, 1975.

Dr. med. Steintl: - International Medical Policy (1938, Berlin):
     " The prerequisite for today's medical policy is naturally
the currently predominant system of medicine. The sick are the
source  of income, therefore it is necessary for sick people to be
there, yes, it proves advantageous if one makes the people
artificially sick."

************************************************************************
     "A new U.S. study challenges claims made for the last 35
years that women can prevent breast cancer by regularly taking
estrogen pills.... the report seems to indicate the drug actually
may cause the disease.... Physicians have been prescribing
estrogen for an estimated 5 million to 6 million middle-aged
women in the United  States alone."
(International Herald Tribune, August 17, 1976)
************************************************************************

     In the USA at least one-and-a-half million people are
hospitalized every year due to the intake of prescribed drugs, and
some 120,000 die. For the first time in history, medicine causes
disasters instead of curing illness!

    In May 1961, Dr. Pierre Bosquet had written in France's
Nouvelle Critique:
     "Research is subordinated (not to a long-term social benefit
but) to an immediate commercial profit. Currently, disease (not
health) is one of the major sources of profit for the
pharmaceutical industry, and the doctors are willing agents of
those profits."

     In the weekly magazine Welt am Sonntag ( July 29, 1973), Dr.
Werner Lehmpfuhl, general practitioner in Hanover, wrote that:
     "Every month, millions are in fact being damaged by treatment
which is supposed to be helping them."

     Dr. med. Steintl: 'International Medical Policy' (1938, Berlin):
     "In order to practice their 'gentle art of healing', the doctors
require millions of animals for torture, on whose suffering their
so-called 'science' is based."

     "There really exists no logical basis for translating the
results of animal experiments to man."
     (Dr. L. Goldberg, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm.
Quantitative Method in Human Pharmacology and Therapeutics,
Pergamon Press, London, 1959)

     "It is the outrageous lie of the supporters of vivisection, a
lie serious in its consequences, that animal experiments take
place for the good of mankind.  The opposite is the case: animal
experiments only have an alibi function for the purpose of
obtaining money, power and titles.  Not one single animal
experiment has ever succeeded in prolonging or improving, let
alone saving, the life of even one single person."
     (from a paper published by Dr. med. Heide Evers, D-7800
Freiburg, 1982)


     "Practically speaking, all animal experiments are untenable
on a scientific basis, for they possess no statistical validity or
reliability whatsoever. They merely perform an alibi function
for pharmaceutical companies, who hope to protect themselves
thereby (from legal liability)."
     - From Tierversuch and Tierexperimentator (Vivisection and
Vivisector) by Herbert Stiller, M.D. and Margot Stiller, M. D.,
Hanover, 1976

     Dr. med. Steintl, Berlin: "International Medical Policy"
     "But when it dawned on some people that the system was
rotten, and clear-sighted individuals fought against it, the
doctors also saw that their livelihood was being threatened.
Their medical policy is primarily the line of withholding information.
' The amount of information to be given will be determined by us',
said Dr. med. Neustedter (a contemporary official - ed)."

       ______________________________________________________
     It seems to be generally, though mistakenly, believed that
doctors unanimously approve of and defend vivisection (animal
research), which is no straight-forward barbarity, but a reversal
of scientific understanding.  The attempt to obtain knowledge
about physiological and pathological processes in Man by
vivisecting animals is completely unscientific!  All such
experiments have led to extremely confused, contradictory and
consequently worthless results, in other words they have done far
more to obscure knowledge than to illuminate it.
     That section of the public that has so far treated this
matter with selfish indifference would do well to take cognizance
of the fact of vivisection on animals!
     ______________________________________________________

     "In my opinion there exists a conspiracy of the medical-
pharmaceutical interests on an international basis to
eradicate alternative health (not disease) care from the people of
the world with a total disregard for the health and life of the
people.  I feel that the major motivation of this potentially
destructive scheme is the desire to make money and I call the
condition of this utter sickness of man... "The Greed Disease".
Here in the United States I observe the conspiracy is interwoven
with the American Medical Association, the federal government,
especially the Federal Drug Administration, the Federal Trade
Commission, the Pharmaceutical Advertising  Council, and the
entire media including television networks, radio networks,
newspapers, magazines and book publishers.  The media domination
prevents the majority of people from being conscious of these
negative forces and focuses their minds on the propaganda that
alternative health-care is "quackery".  However, the Office of
Technological Assessment reported to the Congress in the late
1970's that only 10-20% of the methods utilized in allopathic
(official, orthodox) medicine are proven safe and efficacious.
Quackery is defined as using unproven methods for a profit.  So
who are the real quacks, anyway?
     Much of the enlightenment of the extremely cruel vivisection
portion of this cartel is revealed by the writings of Swiss
medical historian Hans Ruesch in the books 'Slaughter of the Innocent'
and 'Naked Empress', which have both suffered international
suppression (by the corporate mass media and the Medical Power).
Vivisection is a paramount symptom of the "Greed
Disease" and of the inhumane, unscientific, ignorant individuals
who perpetuate it throughout the world.  Animals are not human
beings and do not react in a similar fashion to a drug.  What
might be beneficial in an animal might be lethal to the human, and
conversely.  Where is the logic to transfer information from
animal experimentation to human usage of toxic chemicals?  It is
in the pocket-books of the members of the conspiracy - the Greed
Disease!"
     (Roy Kupsinel, M.D., medical magazine editor in Oviedo, FL
32765, November 22, 1986)

           Vivisection is a Crime Against Humanity
        ______________________________________________
     Dr. med. Bischof, Chairman of the Association of
Antivivisectionist Doctors, Austria:
     "We demand the unconditional prohibition of all animal
experiments, with severe penalties.  The public amateurishly
believes in the orthodox medical fairy tale of the usefulness of
animal experimentation for the art of healing, while the
vivisectors, under the pretext of serving this art of healing,
perpetrate the most despicable trickery.  The defenders of
vivisection like to speak of the exalted aims of scientific
aspiration.  The gentlemen cannot roll their eyes enough, and talk
hypocritically about the welfare of suffering mankind.  A poor
mankind, that can only keep on its feet by torturing defenceless
animals!  The House of Science should be a temple; it has now
become a den of torture, from which the wailing of the animals
cries out to Heaven.  He who approaches the Temple of Science with
reverence does not do so in order to attend an orgy of bleeding and
mangled animals, who were created with infinite wisdom and are
destroyed with stupid cruelty by so-called scientists.  Because
many orthodox doctors cannot conceive of any more worthy task,
because they are not endowed with any better intuition in their
barren materialism, they become enslaved in the pastime
appropriate to their mental level, torturing people and animals and
bestowing their errors and foolishness on mankind.
     We accuse the State, because it pays for the cowardly animal
slaughter with our money and lets these people carry on their
wretched handiwork.  We accuse the Church, because it pursues a
head-in-the-sand policy and acts as if it cannot see that public
morality is undermined and destroyed through its silent condoning
of animal experiments."
     - Tierrecht [Animal-rights], 15 December, 1932

     Dr. med. Franz Hartmann, Hallein:
     "Vivisection and sex murder stand on one and the same level,
they are the product of spiritual blindness and moral depravity...
The alleged objective of working for the good of mankind is a lie.
I know that most vivisectors are seeking more to satisfy their
vanity than their scientific curiosity.  Each of them hopes somehow
to make some discovery which, even though it be worthless, is
nevertheless a discovery with which one can boast before everyone
and throw sand into the eyes of the stupid."
     (From a letter to Dr.Ludwig Fliegel, dated April 22, 1895)

     Dr. H. Boucher, physician, Issy-les-moulineaux, France:
     "In all ages Man has sought to justify the cruelty of his
actions by decking them out under the mantle of a lofty ideal...
     In our present age, in which cruelty has in fact only changed
its form, but in which we profess to be more enlightened than
in former times, living creatures are tortured in the name of the
higher interests of humanity, in the name of Science... It goes
without saying that today's torturers, like their predecessors,
boast of the gratifying results of their cruel methods.  Thus, in
all the journals at their disposal, in all their classical works,
they turn the heads of the young by asserting that it is thanks to
vivisection that Harvey discovered the circulation of blood,
Galvani electricity, Claude Bernard the causes for the formation
of sugar in the human organism, and so forth.  Finally, in order to
prove the triumph of their method, they remind us that it resulted
in the invention of the "healing" sera for disease.  Well, we are
not afraid to say that all these statements are in fact false,
that tortures, whether religious, legal or scientific, have always
produced only hideous results, and that they have led only to
error, disaster and degeneration..."
     (From his lecture at the Fifth International Anti-Vivisection
Congress in Zurich, 1912)

     Dr. med Gustav Riedlin, Freiburg im Breisgau (Der Versuch am
Lebenden Tier [Research on The Living Animal]):
      "We anti-vivisectionist doctors oppose the abuse of pure
research, the "scientific" animal torture, and we demand its banning
under criminal law. We demand its total abolition and would also
demand this even if - which is not the case - some great
use for suffering mankind were to emerge from it.  Apart from the
depraving cruelties and the impossibility of carrying out most
experiments without causing pain, experimentation on the weak
body, i.e. the torture of the defenseless animal, is unreliable
and misleading in its results on the part of ambitious pushers and
illusionists with no moral scruples.
     ....But we do not content ourselves with condemning animal
experiments from the standpoint of sympathy, moral laws and
religion; we wage our fight against animal torture also from the
purely scientific standpoint, and can prove that it is
superfluous, useless, harmful and disastrous for our race."
               (From Der Arzt,  August 1930, No. 8, special issue)

     Dr. Eduard Reich, a well-known  public health specialist,
replied to an invitation to attend a congress against vivisection
in Amsterdam:
      "There can be nothing more pressingly necessary than for the
barbarity of vivisection to be fought precisely from the
scientific angle. Vivisection is not only the most cruel and
loathsome, but also the worst way of conducting research, a
shameful discredit to science, the surest path to the
brutalization of doctors and of the whole of society...
      Every doctor who casts a stone at vivisection is performing
a service to science, civilisation, religion and mankind."
              (Der Tier-und Menschenfreund, 1924, issue 2)

     Dr. med. Hugo Knecht, Ear, Nose, Throat and Chest Specialist:
     "Doctors who speak out in favour of vivisection do not
deserve any recognition in society, all the more so since their
brutality is apparent not only during such experiments, but also
in their practical medical lives. They are mostly men who stop at
nothing in order to satisfy their ruthless and unfeeling lust  for
honours and gain."
      (Linz, October 5, 1909)

       Dr. med. Arthur Laab, Graz,  in his paper Fort mit der
Vivisektion! ( Away with Vivisection!)  (Graz, 1905):
      "Any doctor is dishonorable who, contrary to his finer
feelings as a person, contrary to the inner voice of his
conscience and of what is right, and contrary to his convictions
as a scientist, gives approval to, defends or even merely silently
accepts physiological experiments on animals, otherwise known as
vivisection, instead of courageously and uncompromisingly fighting
against an extremely deplorable scientific aberration....
      Under the mask of 'science', under the protective wings of a
State which is dazzled and blinded by the hypocritical lustre of a
brutalized, egotistical and self-seeking science of falsehood,
thousands, whole hecatombs of mostly highly-developed and
sensitive animals are tortured to death every year, by the day and
hour and every minute of the day and night, in a cruel and brutal
manner which is hardly conceivable by the normal human imagination,
without - as we shall hear shortly - even the very slightest
actual use of any kind emerging from this barbaric so-called
'method of enquiry'.
      Vivisection is unscientific, useless, misleading.
      ... Vivisection has never, ever served an actual truly
incontestable scientific purpose, it is not doing so today and it
will never do so, because it is incapable of doing so. But
vivisection certainly has to be described and branded as
unscientific; for it has conjured up the most gross errors, it has
produced the most calamitous fallacies! Vivisection has never
served the purpose of true science, but in fact only the
contemptible purpose of self-advancement, ambition and personal
gain.
      Vivisectors are known to suffer from a scientific epidemic,
one which is furthermore steadily on the increase: from a rampant,
wild and contagious obsession with knowledge. They are no longer
fully of sound mind, no longer competent to judge..."

   "Vivisection appeals to the basest instincts of fear and
cowardice and is rooted in the unjust principle that 'might makes
right' and that 'the end justifies the means', thus permitting any
cruelty on the tyrant's plea of necessity.
     Before the bar of human justice, vivisection stands condemned
on three main counts: cruelty  to animals, uselessness to Man, and
obstruction on the path of true knowledge."
      Dr. M. Beddow Baily, M.D., IRCP, Member, Royal College of
Surgeons, in his book "More Spotlights on Vivisection" (London,
1958)

                    An Undercover Dictatorship
        ___________________________________________________

     " Unless we put Medical Freedom into the Constitution, the
time will come when medicine will  organize into an undercover
dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men
and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the 'Bastille'
of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.
They are fragments of monarchy and have no place in a republic.
The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions
for Medical Freedom as well as for Religious Freedom."
-Dr. Jonathan Rush,
an original signatory of the American Declaration of Independence,
1776.

      Most unfortunately, Dr. Rush's warnings went unheeded, and his
words have proved dramatically prophetic:
      "The hearings have revealed police-state tactics ...
possibly perjured testimony (by the government) to gain a
conviction... intimidation and gross disregard for Constitutional
Rights.... The FDA is bent on using snooping gear to pry and
invade."

       Woodrow Wilson, during his first presidential campaign in
1912, had no intention of keeping his promise to right the wrongs
which he could so well describe, having himself  for many years
"lived within the shadow of Wall Street." The President was not a
free man:
      "The MASTERS of the government of the United States are the
combined capitalists and manufacturers of the United States. It is
written over every intimate page of the record of Congress, it is
written all through the history of conferences at the White House,
that the suggestions of economic policy in this country have come
from one source, not from many sources. The benevolent guardians,
the kind-hearted trustees who have taken the troubles of
government off our hands have become so conspicuous that almost
anybody can write out a list of them... The big bankers, the big
manufacturers, the big masters of commerce, the heads of railroad
corporations... The government of the United States at present is
a foster child of the special interests."
     (The New Freedom, 1913, Doubleday & Co., New York, pp.57/58)

      Woodrow Wilson's words have remained as true today as they
were when he pronounced them from his campaign train. The American
Presidents, unless they want to end up like John Kennedy, do not
rule their country anymore than the official governments in the
other so-called democracies, for the big boys in industry and
finance have long since taken over that task.

       "...Corporate power has become the dominant force in our
society...All attempts to check the mounting power of the
corporate giants have failed.  Consider the two most important
instruments forged by the progressive forces of the country in
their crusade to curb the march of monopoly: the regulatory system
and the anti-trust program...
       The regulatory system lies in shambles, and the
corporations which were intended to be regulated in the public
interest now dominate these regulatory agencies. The betrayal of
the public trust is virtually complete... The anti-trust laws are
virtually dead letters. It is clear from recent disclosures that
the Anti-Trust Division of the Justice Department is almost
immobilized because of deals made over its head and behind its
back in the White House and other corridors of power.."

Publisher of The Progressive,  the monthly founded by the late
Senator LaFollette.)

     "It has long been demonstrated that the Rockefeller interests
have created, built up and developed the most far-reaching
industrial empire ever conceived in the mind of man. Standard Oil
(ordered dissolved by the courts in 1911 for monopolistic crimes,
but today the giant Exxon Corporation.-ed) is of course the
foundation industry upon which all of the other industries have
been built. The story of Old John D., as ruthless an industrial
pirate as ever came down the pike, is well known.
     The keystone of this mammoth empire is the Chase National
Bank with 27 branches in New York City and 21 in foreign countries
(now renamed the Chase Manhattan Bank with more than 200 branches
in the U.S. and abroad.-ed). Not the least of its holdings are in
the drug business. The Rockefellers own the largest drug
manufacturing combine in the world and use all of their other
interests to bring pressure to increase the sale of drugs. The
fact that most of the 12,000 separate drug items on the market are
harmful is of no concern to the Drug Trust... (Today -1993- there are
more than 200,000 drugs on the market. -ed.)"
     -Morris Bealle, The Drug Story, Bi-World Publishing, 1949.

                    ----------------------
     The trend of using animals on a massive scale in medical
research was started in America, by John D. Rockefeller, who had
learned from his pappy, a horse-thief, bigamist and travelling
salesman of snake-oil as a sure-fire cancer remedy, the limitless
gullibility of the general public, and how to exploit it. JDR's evil
genius gave him the idea to involve governments ( "free"
monopoly medicine) in the profits from the sale of lucrative but
deadly "miracle" drugs, which had constantly to be replaced by new
ones, after the advertised "miracles" had not only failed to
materialize but had furthermore opened big scars, mental and
physical ones, in the nation's health. Exactly how the Rockefeller
principle was organised and sold to all other industrialized
countries has been exhaustively described by Morris Bealle in The
Drug Story (1949) and by Hans Ruesch in Naked Empress (1982).

     After giving instances of the fabulous profits from the sale
of these drugs, Bealle writes:
     "... Is it any wonder that the Rockefellers and their
stooges in the Food and Drug Administration, The U.S. Public
Health Service, the Federal Trade Commission, the Better Business
Bureau, the Army Medical Corps, the Navy Bureau of Medicine, and
thousands of health officers all over the country, should combine
to put out of business all forms of therapy that discourage the
use of drugs.
     The last annual report of the Rockefeller Foundation itemizes
the gifts it has made to colleges and public agencies in the past
44 years and they total somewhat over half a billion dollars (when
the dollar was worth something - ed).  These colleges, of course,
teach their students all the drug lore the Rockefeller
pharmaceutical houses want taught. Otherwise there would be no
more gifts, just as there are no gifts to any of the 30 odd
drugless colleges in the United States.
      Harvard, with its aristocratic background and well-
publicized medical school, has received $8,764,433 of this Drug
Trust money. Yale got $7,927,800, John Hopkins $10,418,531,
Stanford $947,505, Washington University in St. Louis $2,842,132,
New York's Columbia University $5,424,371, Cornell University
$1,709,072, etc., etc."

                  AMERICA'S MEDICO - DRUG CARTEL
       _________________________________________________________
      The medico-drug cartel was summed up by J.W Hodge, M.D., of
Niagara Falls, N.Y., in these words:
      "The medical monopoly or medical trust, euphemistically
called the American Medical Association, is not merely the meanest
monopoly ever organized, but the most arrogant, dangerous and
despotic organization which ever managed a free people in this
or any other age. Any and all methods of healing the sick by
means of safe, simple and natural remedies are sure to be assailed
and denounced by the arrogant leaders of the AMA doctors' trust as
"fakes, frauds and humbugs". Every practitioner of the healing art
who does not ally himself with the medical trust is denounced as a
"dangerous quack" and "imposter" by the predatory trust-doctors.
Every sanitarian who attempts to restore the sick to a state of
health  by natural means without resort to the knife or poisonous
drugs, disease-imparting serums, deadly vaccines or toxins is at
once pounced upon by these medical tyrants and fanatics, bitterly
denounced, vilified and persecuted to the fullest extent." (Quoted
by Morris Bealle in The Drug Story. )

      The American Medical Association (AMA) has a long history of
corruption. Its most infamous leader was Morris Fishbein who
reigned from 1924 until 1949. He had failed anatomy in medical
school and had never practised medicine a day in his life, but
during his years in power he was recognized as the virtual
dictator of American medicine. Journalist and scholar Ruth Mulvey
Harmer, Ph.D., characterized Fishbein as having the "ruthlessness
of a shark" and concluded that he "managed to hold back the
twentieth century for 50 years for the benefit of organized
medicine". ( American Medical Avarice,  1975)

      "The people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What
the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as
different as night and day...Key individuals are...granting
special favours...similar to the 'protection racket' of organized
crime..."

        _________________________________________________________

Scholar Robert G. Houston has warned us ( Cancer Scandal, video):
      "Probably today, more than any time in modern history there
is a strike force, a hit force, that is coordinated by some of the
agencies - the FDA, the National Cancer Institute, the Post
Office, the Justice Department - and now the Narc squads too. The
Drug Enforcement Agency is involved in it, working hand in hand
with the FDA to raid doctor's offices, to raid health food stores,
to harass, intimidate and to show the power of the gun... This
is such a profound violation of rights... so characteristic of
totalitarian terror tactics. There is evidence that this is all
coordinated in a massive  movement to stamp out all alternative
doctors...At least 50 and probably more like a 100 doctors in the
past two years  have undergone such treatment..."  (Video

      Dr. Robert C. Atkins provides additional testimony against
this enemy that has brought the Gestapo to birth within America:
      "There's a war going on... The War Against Quackery is a
carefully orchestrated, heavily endowed campaign sponsored by
extremists holding positions of power in the orthodox hierarchy...
      The multimillion-dollar campaign against quackery was never
meant to root out incompetent doctors; it was, and is, designed
specifically to destroy alternative medicine... The millions were
raised and spent because orthodox medicine sees alternative,
drugless medicine as a real threat to its economic power.
      "And right they are...The majority of the drug houses will
not survive."

      An editorial in The Economist, London, January 6, 1973,
opened thus:
      "Thalidomide is not the first nor the last drug to have
brought heartbreak where it was meant to bring help.
There have been quite a number of other tragedies since
Thalidomide went wrong 13 years ago." (After 'extensive'
so-called 'safety-tests ' on animals, of course, when this
'anti-nausia' pill was precribed for pregnant women, being
"perfectly safe for mother and child", or so the manufacturer
promised.)

"A new U.S. study challenges claims made for the last 35 years
that women can prevent breast cancer by regularly taking estrogen
pills...The report seems to indicate the drug actually may cause
the disease...Physicians have been prescribing estrogen for an
estimated 5 million to 6 million middle-aged women in the United
States alone."
      (International Herald Tribune, August  17, 1976)
..................................................................
     "...Facts incontrovertible in the [animal] laboratory are
applied to clinical medicine in a manner quite unwarranted. The
best examples are the indiscriminate use of hormones and the ready
acceptance of the biased blurbs of  research propagated by
commercial travellers."
      (Dr. Ffrangcon Roberts, British Medical Journal,
       June 16,1945, p. 848)

      "When oestrogen first became available for clinical use,
there was an understandable over-enthusiasm for its application...
If one depends on the beautifully-embossed brochures which exhort
the practitioner with every mail, one falls, unhappily, into the
security of the illusion that there are neither contra-indications
nor side-effects in the use of estrogen."
      (Drs. Robert A. Kimbrough and S. Lion Israel, Journal of the
American Medical Association, Vol. 138, December 25, 1949, p.1216)

      "I cannot over-emphasize the fallacies inherent in the
efforts to apply directly to man the results of animal experiments
in the field of hormones!"
      (From the testimony of Don Carlos Hines,  M.D.,  before the
Delaney Committee of the House of Representatives, Jan. 31, 1952)

      On December 13, 1975, under the title "The Medicine Bluff",
an interview was published in the French weekly Paris-Match  with
Dr. Henri Pradal, a specialist in pharmaceutical toxicology,
concerning whom Paris-Match stated:
      "Henri Pradal spent twelve years in the camp of the
industrial laboratories, before leaving it in order to say what he
could no longer deep silent about."
      Dr. Pradal:
      "The medical profession is not informed, or, rather, it is
instructed almost exclusively by the journals and brochures from
the laboratories, and thus by advertising.
      A certain messianic belief in progress has persuaded us that
an increased use of drugs represents man's victory over disease, a
proof of his power, a sign of progress. Whence comes this blind
trust, when intelligence should surely lead us rather towards
mistrust? It stems from an illusion which has been imposed on us
by the all-powerful pharmaceutical industry, by a giant brewing-
house of poisons that makes billions out of it. The guilt for all this
lies with the powers-that-be in the Public Health Department, the
Government Ministry and the health insurance associations, whose
apathy and negligence have resulted in the sanctioning of no less
than 11,000 medicaments (in France), although only a couple out
of 100 are of any provable worth, as has been confirmed by the
World Health Organization.
      The doctors can't see further than their own noses. They
have become convinced by the laboratory-financed medical
literature that medicines have turned them into demi-gods, and
that attacks on the pharmaceutical industry mean attacks on
medicine.
      When the people finally discover the cause of their illnesses,
the sale of medicaments will abruptly drop. But we must first get
them to understand it..."

                           ********
      "Medicine-induced illness has become a public health menace of
major and alarming proportions, producing more deaths annually
than are caused by breast cancer, and ranking among the top ten
causes of hospital admissions."
      (Medicine in Society, Vol. 7, 1981)
                           ********

      Some 10% (or 400,000) of the nearly 4 million yearly
admissions to Canadian hospitals result from the intake of
prescribed drugs. But once in hospital people are still not safe
from mis-prescribing and adverse reactions to drugs. More than
200,000 serious injuries (including death) result from drug
therapy in Canadian hospitals every year.  Studies have determined
that adverse drug reactions can contribute to 36% of all deaths in
hospitals, and 25% of such deaths may be due to directly fatal
poisoning. Most adverse effects will double the time of the average
stay in hospital. For more such grim statistics see:
 - Joel Lexchin, M.D.,
The Real Pushers: A Critical  Analysis of the Canadian Drug Industry,
New Star Books, Vancouver ( p. 58-161, etc.).

      Already many years ago, Dr. Walter Modell of Cornell
University's Medical College, whom Time magazine had
described as "one of America's foremost drug experts", wrote in
Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics:
      "When will they realize that there are too many drugs? No
fewer than 150,000 preparations are now in use. About 15,000 new
mixtures and dosages hit the market each year, while about 12,000
die off...We simply don't have enough diseases to go around. At
the moment the most helpful contribution is the new drug to
counteract the untoward effect of other new drugs."
      (Time, May 26, 1961)

      In the German medical journal Muenchener Medizinische
Wochenschrift  (No. 34, 1969), Dr. W. Chr. Mueller of the 1st
University Hospital for Women, Munich, reported after one of the
most comprehensive studies in this area of medicine that:
      "... 61 percent of all deformities in new-born infants and 88
percent of all stillbirths must be attributed to the effects of
medicaments."

      In Die Weissen Magier (The White Magicians), Bertelsmann
 Verlag, 1974,  Kurt Bluechel gives the following figures for West
Germany:
      "Only 25 years ago, among every 100,000 children born in the
Federal Republic there were 3 cases of malformation. Today, 5
children are malformed for only 1,000 births. Within a quarter of
a century, therefore, the malformations have increased more than a
hundredfold." (page 259)
      And on page 257 Bluechel states:
      "The average German citizen today consumes about five times
as many medicines as in the years immediately preceding the Second
World War. Is he also five times healthier? Of course not. On
average the West German population is far more frequently ill
today than it was in those days... Unexpectedly, an industry which
was created to heal diseases has become the starting point for new
ailments."

      Swiss State News on TV on May 30, 1988:
      "The use of Accutane, a Hoffman-LaRoche product, has caused
hundreds of defective births. The packages containing this drug
will henceforth have to display the picture of a malformed
newborn." ...Not  banned, mind you...no criminal prosecution...

      A.D. Dayan, who represented the European Federation of
Pharmaceutical Industries at the European Parliament of Strasbourg
in 1982 and also works for the Wellcome Research Laboratories,
revealed:
      "Practocol was prescribed over 4 years before doctors
realised that it caused corneal damage including blindness - a side
effect not predicted by animal experiments."
      (C.T. Dollery in Risk-Benefit Analysis in Drug Research, Ed.
J.f. Cavalla, 1981, MTP)
      Mr. Dayan overlooked many tens of thousands of other drugs
that had all been withdrawn from the market by the health
authorities of various nations who had first approved them on the
basis of  these phony "safety" tests on animals. Those "health
authorities" included Mr. Dayan himself!

      Dr. med. Karlheinz Blank, West Germany, in Der Tierschutz,
Nr. 62, 1985, Journal of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutscher
Tierschutz (German Animal-Defense Society):
      "A drug that is tested on animals will have completely
different effects in man. There are uncounted examples that could
be cited."
     ...But a word to the wise ought to be sufficient...
      A single Amanita Phalloides mushroom can wipe out a whole
human family, but is HEALTH-FOOD for the rabbit, one of the
favorite laboratory animals...

      Prof. Bruno Fedi, M.D., Director of the City Hospital of
Terni, Italy, anatomist, pathologist, specialist in urology,
gynecology and cancerology:
      "All our current knowledge of medicine and surgery derives
from observations of man following especially the anatomical-
clinical method introduced by Virchow: symptoms of the patient
while alive and the alternations found in the dead body.
      These observations have led us to discover the connection
between smoking and cancer, between diet and arteriosclerosis,
between alcohol and cyrrhosis, and so on.
      Even the RH factor has not been discovered on the macacus
rhesus [monkey]. The observations of Banting and Best on diabetes,
attributed to experiments on dogs, were already well known. Every
discovery derives from observations on humans, which are
subsequently tested in animals, and whenever the findings
happen to concur, the discovery is attributed to animal
experimentation...
      Everything we know today in medicine derives from
observations made on human beings. The ancient Romans and Greeks
gained most of their knowledge from epidemiological studies of
people. The same goes for surgery. Surgery can't be learned on
animals.
      Animals are anatomically completely different from man,
their reactivity is completely different, their structure and
resistance are completely different. In fact, exercises on animals
are misleading. The surgeon who works a lot on animals loses the
sensibility necessary for operating on humans."

_____________________________________________________
      Dr. med. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of
internal diseases and participant in about 150 vaccination-victim
trials:
 "Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There
are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS."
      From a speech to the third Symposium of the ILDAV
(International League of Doctors Against Vivisection, founded in
1987, Hans Ruesch Honorary Chairman) held in Woudschoten,
Holland, April 15/16/17, 1988.

    -  Dr. Charles Henry Kempe, University of Colorado. -  After a 20-
year study, Dr. Kempe recommends abolishing smallpox vaccination.
Since 1948 there have been no deaths from smallpox in the United
States. In the same period more than 300 persons have died from
smallpox vaccinations, including vaccine-induced encephalitis.
              (The Evening Bulletin, Philidelphia, May 7, 1965)

      "The public is surely entitled to convincing proof, beyond
all reasonable doubt, that artificial immunization is in fact a
safe and effective procedure, in no way injurious to health, and
that the threat of the corresponding natural diseases remain
sufficiently clear and urgent to warrant mass inoculation of
everyone, even against their will if necessary. Unfortunately,
such proof has never been given."
      -Richard Moskowitz, M.D., Journal of the American Institute
of Homeopathy, March 1983 (76:7)

      Professor J. Clausen of the Institute of Preventive Medicine
at the University of Odense stated in March 1973:
      "Millions of people have been vaccinated with the polio
vaccine, which contains the cancer-forming SV-40 virus originally
found in monkeys. It is possible that it will take 20 years or
still longer before the possible damaging effects of this virus
come to light."

They have already come to light...

      Article in Weekly World News (U.S.A.) May 28, 1985:
        _______________________________________________
98 Million People Doomed? Brain-Cancer Virus Found in Polio
Vaccine -
death among the gullible patients!
       How can there be such varying views? Mainly, vaccination
programs and antibiotics have deliberately and wrongly been given
all the credit for naturally-occurring declines in killer diseases such
as smallpox, cholera, typhoid, tuberculosis, dysentery, etc.,
whereas most or all the credit belongs to better hygiene,
sanitation, housing, and greater resistance to disease thanks to
improved economic conditions - better nutrition being particularly
important in the case of tuberculosis.
      London's typhoid epidemics were being halted by changes in
the water supply before the "bug" was discovered, let alone a
vaccine was developed - according to a 1923 report in the British
Medical Journal. But tendentious legends has it that the vaccine
saved the lives of thousands of troops in the Boer War and the
1914-1918 war. The documented truth is that typhus hit vaccinated
soldiers and citizens with about the same frequency as
unvaccinated ones, with the only difference that an unspecified
number of vaccinated people developed the well known post-
vaccinal effects - immediate insurgence of the disease against
which they had been vaccinated, meningitis, and death.
      The issue is also confused by health professionals'
consistent inability or unwillingness to identify vaccine-related
deaths. A University of California study has shown that at least
1,000 deaths a year, described as the mysterious SIDS (Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome), are in fact caused by vaccines.

      "Vaccines are made from: mucus of infected children
(whooping cough), excrement from typhoid victims (typhoid),
fermented chick embryos, and until recently vaccines for polio
were got from the diseased kidneys of monkeys, and cause:
      leukemia, encephalitis, Multiple Sclerosis - and: "Now I
believe the smallpox-vaccine theory is the explanation to the
explosion of AIDS".
      World Health Organization, advisor, Times 11.5.87

      Dr. med. Steintl, Berlin, on "International Medical
Policy":
      "...In order to practice their 'gentle art', the doctors
require millions of animals for torture, on whose suffering their
'science' is based.
      But when it dawned on some people that the system was
rotten, and clear-sighted individuals fought against it, the
doctors also saw that their livelihood was being
threatened. Their medical policy is primarily the line of
withholding information. 'The amount of information to be given is
determined by us', said Dr. med. Neustedter.
      The prerequisite for today's medical policy is naturally the
currently predominant system of medicine. The sick are the source
of income, therefore it is necessary for sick people to be there,
yes, it proves advantageous if one makes the people artificially
sick.
      Hundreds and thousands of perjuries have been committed via
falsified scientific reports. I say this, because I can prove it.
By means of these the high standing of the doctors is forced on
the public. Damage thus comes about as a result of vaccination,
and is constantly proven. But it is portrayed in a very toned down
form by official sources. Since 1930 many doctors have declared
themselves opposed to vaccination. But the vaccination law
continues to prevail. In many German States there is compulsory
vaccination, although even the supporters of vaccination were
originally against compulsion. In 1929 it so happened that a
father abducted his own child three times so as to save it from
the persecution of those who wanted to use force in order to
vaccinate the child. But the fourth time the officials succeeded
in taking the child for vaccination. They dragged it out of the
car. After the vaccination, encephalitis (inflammation of the
brain) set in, and within eight days the child was dead! In  this
way vaccination has at times become a legally-sanctioned, judicial
murder, committed by custodians of the law. Vaccination can, as has
been proven, cause encephalitis...

      Dr. med. Guttman (extract from Biologische Heilkunst,
1932/10):
      "Barn-yard medicine has not given us any vaccination
procedure that really protects against illness, but many that
endanger the body, that even bring death."

       Excerpt from a 3-page article by Daniel Jack Chasman in
Science, April 1986, titled "The Polio Paradox". and subtitled,
"One of the two polio vaccines has been largely abandoned in the
U.S., the other is the leading cause of the disease":
      "...Presumably, when Kay NcNeary changed her daughter's
diapers, a reactivated virus was transmitted to her. She sued the
manufacturer of the vaccine and the public agencies that
administered it. In 1982, a Seattle jury awarded her $1.1 million.
Neither McNeary nor her lawyer, Daniel Sullivan, claimed that the
vaccine had been manufactured improperly. The "live" vaccine is
currently the "vaccine of choice" in the United States. It is also
the nation's LEADING CAUSE OF POLIO. In 1982 and 1983,
according to the federal Centers for Disease Control's Morbidity and
Mortality Weekly Report, it was the ONLY cause." (emphasis added.)
      So to manufacture a highly lucrative pseudo-vaccine like
Sabin's, which has been recognized as being the sole cause of
polio in the U.S.A. today, an entire species of animals, the
highly sensitive and intelligent rhesus monkey, has been nearly
wiped out. The same pseudo-researchers who were responsible for
that erstwhile fiasco are now trying to get hold of the last
individuals of chimps left to manufacture an AIDS vaccine which is
likely to be equally ineffective and dangerous, but even more
lucrative for the profession and the industry than the Salk and
Sabin products.
      Polio has practically disappeared also in those countries
where no vaccination had taken place; and countries, which of
course, were spared the huge damages that the vaccinations had
caused wherever they were employed.

      An article by reporter Barbara Bouyet in Fur 'n Feathers,
March 1987 cites Dr. Robert Simpson of Rutgers University as
saying:
      "Immunization programs against flu, measles, mumps, polio,
etc., actually may be seeding humans with animal RNA to form
pro-viruses... which under proper conditions become activated
and cause a variety of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis,
multiple sclerosis, lupus erythematosus, Parkinson's disease and
cancer. Spare me this 'medical miracle'."

      In Australia, Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, M.D., and  Dr. Glen
Dettman, Ph.D., discovered that some 500 out of every 1,000
Aboriginal children were dying in the Northern territories. The
cause was a type of toxic-shock reaction, complicated by vitamin C
deficiency, brought on by immunization. In a two-year period
without vaccination and with improved nutrition not one child
died.

      Dr. B. Duperrat, of the Saint-Louis Hospital in Paris, wrote
in the French medical journal Presse Medicale on March 12, 1955:
"Vaccination also causes leukemia to break out."
