Apparently nowadays I am a big pharma dog, simply for the belief that real medicine is superior to homeopathy. Big pharma has not got me anything bigger than a really shitty disposable ball point pen. Apparently I have skipped out on the going rate for big pharma hand outs and opted to be paid in good wishes and pats on the back. [Read more...]
We know that homeopathic pills do not function. They are effectively nanodoses of things based on the notion that water has a mystical power to fly in the face of all known chemistry and biology.
Dengue is a nasty disease that can cause internal haemorrhaging. It kills by the thousand in India every year and it’s not something to be trifled with. This is a sad waste of money, lining the pockets of woo merchants rather than spending money on actual preventative measures and education.
A lot of people will die this year thanks to this. Hurray for pseudoscience.

“The homeopathic approach to healing maintains a deep respect for symptoms of illness as important defenses of a person’s immune and defense system. While conventional medicine often tends to assume that symptoms are something “wrong” with the person that need to be treated, inhibited, suppressed, or biochemically manipulated, homeopaths tend to assume that symptoms are important defenses of the organism that are most effectively resolved when treatments nurture, nourish, or mimic the symptoms in order to initiate a healing process. Ultimately, these two different approaches to healing people have led to various conflicts.”
Homeopaths contend that increased rates of cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and various chronic diseases for increasingly younger people may result from conventional medicine’s suppression of symptoms and disease processes.It is therefore no surprise that conventional physicians and Big Pharma have a long and dark history of working together to attack homeopathy and homeopaths.
Medicine doesn’t stop death, it merely delays it. It gives you time. From just 10 seconds to say goodbye to the people you love to 10 decades to live your life as you see fit. The time it gives depends on the technology it has available to treat a specific disease. As per the technology, every single one of us will die. You are going to have to die of something. For most of us it will be heart attacks (and we are the lucky ones), some of us will die by stroke, some by respiratory failure, some by cancer and some by accidents. Some of us will die maliciously, some will die unexpectedly and some of us will know it’s coming and try to make our peace with those who we love and cherish. Medicine is the tool by which we do that.
However? The thing is for the time being these are diseases that we cannot prevent but can forestall. Even medication exists to reduce the time frame of these diseases, placing controls on them to reduce their effect on our lives until it is the unfortunate day that we die. We are working on fixing that and indeed we have given people a second chance at life through technology that wasn’t possible before.
Myth #1: “There is no research that shows that homeopathic medicines work.

Myth #2: “The research studies showing that homeopathic medicines work are ‘poorly conducted studies’.”

Myth #4: “There is nothing in a homeopathic medicine. It is just water.”
Myth #5: “If we do not presently understand how homeopathic medicines work, then, they cannot work. It’s witchcraft.”
Homeopathic medication functions on a similar effect to the placebo effect, this is well known. There has been no repeatable, conclusive experiment to prove that homeopaths produce a discernable physiological effect similar to actual medicine. These aren’t myths, these are facts.
Homeopathy isn’t witchcraft. It’s bullshit. Industrial grade bullshit that is killing people in third world nations by passing itself off as real medicine in order to make a quick buck of the suffering of people. This is also a fact.
But I was aware of his disease and indeed his work on more affordable things such as Pixar and their movies. I can see that he brought a lot of joy to the world via his technology. To me Steve Jobs is the man who mixed technology and art rather than the man who made smart phones popular or what have you.
I lost a friend to pancreatic cancer. The disease is quite insidious but I understand that Steve Jobs had a neuroendocrine tumour. This is a relatively slow growing tumour which means that he had an excellent prognosis of living a longer life. Most pancreatic tumours are incredibly aggressive but his specific one is not, it grows a lot slower and many patients outlive the disease.
I was aware of Steve Jobs’s usage of an alternative medicine based diet and indeed his delaying of treatment. This may have contributed to his untimely death but we cannot say for sure, it certainly wasn’t doing him any favours. But what we can say for sure is the alternative medicine bandwagon didn’t really wait for the body to cool before they started to circle the carcass.
Mike Adams in his typical charming way blames his death on medicine.
It is extremely saddening to see the cost in human lives that modern society pays for its false belief in conventional medicine and the cancer industry in particular. Visionary Steve Jobs died today, just months after being treated for cancer with chemotherapy at theStanford Cancer Center in Palo Alto, California. In recent months, he appeared in public photos as a frail shadow of his former self. The thin legs, sunken cheek bones and loss of body weight are all classic signs of total body toxicity observed in chemotherapy and radiotherapy patients.
Mike Adams sells quackery, his website actively advertises products that make him money. His entire spiel is reliant on you falling for his nonsense and forking out money for his product rather than medicine. In short he is a pharmaceutical company that deals in sugar pills. Hence his love of denigrating working products. Not once does he mention the special diets Jobs put himself through nor did he mention Jobs delaying his initial treatments before embracing real medicine wholesale. He had radical surgery to remove sections of tumour (Whipple’s Pancreaticodudeonectomy) and had to have a transplant when it recurred in his liver. The man was fighting a real disease and he fought it using medicine. By contrast a friend of mine who perished from pancreatic cancer died in under a year from diagnosis. Mr. Jobs survived courtesy of all this and experimental hormone linked chemotherapy which improves the specificity of chemo.
It’s utterly shocking that Mike Adams would flog his nonsense by name dropping the dead but he certainly goes onto parade a bunch of famous people’s names like some grotesque hitlist of medicine. He also mentions Michael Douglas on that list which is kind of weird since Mr. Douglas is still very much alive.
It’s a disingenuous mechanism of fooling the ignorant. See all these famous people have died from chemotherapy without mentioning all the famous people who survived with chemo. I see not one mention of Kylie Minogue in his list. Maybe it’s because she fought cancer and lived.
But what’s the sell here?
The simple combination of vitamin D and selenium, if taken in combination, could probably prevent more than 80% of all cancers in America. Yet the American Cancer Society and all the mainstream cancer non-profits don’t dare advocate vitamin D or selenium. If solutions were readily available to everyone,how would the cancer industry maintain its profitability?
Mike Adams the health ranger is trying to flog pills using the death of another human. Pills that do not work. Pills that will cause the death of their patient by not actually doing anything. Particularly since Vitamin D is produced naturally by our bodies and Mike Adams is providing a supplement that isn’t even necessary.
And it never mentions mechanisms or types of cancers or how selenium and Vitamin D kill cancer cells but not human ones. Wait a minute… If Arsenic is the Poison of Carbon that Means Selenium is the Poison of Silicon based life forms.
Holy moly! Mike Adams isn’t even making stuff up, he is just lifting out the plot of Evolution before the rest of the article degenerates into rambling nonsense and conspiracy theories about people tracking where you are with your iPhones. Which is incredibly stupid since if we wanted to spy on Mike Adams we would just look up his Twitter feed. What is it about conspiracy nutters who assume that the world is out to get them and then write about it on the internet where any damn fool can see it? Do they assume that the powers that be don’t have broadband?
He isn’t done with this though and tries to flog a friend’s nutritionist stuff stating that it could have saved Steve Job’s life. This man in particular teaches you “How to minimize your genetic predisposition to diseases such as diabetes, heart and thyroid disease”.
Yes, he is offering to do the impossible. Your genetic predisposition can be counteracted by removing other variables that contribute to a disease but it can not be eliminated because it is genetic. If your genetics are being changed, it is a bad thing. Changed Genetics are caused by Mutagens. Mutagens cause Cancer, not Ninja Turtles and he ends with this challenge.
I don’t mean to be blunt, but how many conventional doctors are dead in their 50′s and 60′s? All the people I know who follow drugs-and-surgery medicine are either dead or dying. If you’re smart, you follow those who are healthy, not sick! And Dr. Bisci is a shining example of authentic health — he sets an example we would all do well to follow for lifelong health.
In a bid to encourage readers to do something, readers who are above the age of 50 please go tell Mike Adams how you survived the scourge of medicine and how all us medics die young.
It is true in one way, doctors do tend to die younger than their patients. Medicine is a stressful job, one of the most stressful in the world. You go in daily to cure patients but there isn’t anyone who treats doctors themselves. We are more prone to falling sick due to exposure to sick people all the time and more prone to stress related disease. We are more prone to dietary issues because many doctors spend large amounts of time in hospitals and don’t get to eat balanced diets.
Because patients come first. A lot of doctors destroy their own health to treat patients. My mother got varicose veins from standing so long. My aunt had to have a hip replacement aged 45 after a patient knocked her over. Our family is filled with people who have injuries from being doctors. And not one of them wo
uld trade patients over our own health.
Maybe I haven’t been fair. I don’t think it’s fair to compare these people to vultures. Vultures are a part of life. These people are worse in that they are willfully ignorant. Delusionally so. Any evidence provided turns you into a pharmacological shill who accepts bribes (of ballpoint pens!) and they simply ignore you. I don’t know how many people have suffered serious injury or death at the behest of people like Mike Ranger but many of those are certainly preventable.
“I have always admired physicists they seek answers by answering questions of nature. And when they follow they follow a rigorous scientific approach to the quest for knowledge, they refuse to be sidelined by dogma, personal belief or trickery”
“Science in it’s most pure form is about the search for truth, I am not referring to the bastardisation of science by modern corporations which use the language of science to push a kind of intellectual tyranny involving for profit GMOs, Vaccines and Pharmaceuticals. I am talking about pure non-corporate driven science and the quest for human understanding”
|Just a normal day of work!|
“Fertile grounds for exploration in the fields of quantum physics, the many worlds interpretation and the study of consciousness”
“As a fan of Hawking’s work over the years I was looking forward to reading his explanations of The Theory of Everything and The Grand Design, the invisible hand behind it all. What I found in his book however rather surprised me, on the very first page of the book I found myself quite disappointed at the apparent lack of understanding of the universe from someone as intellectually capable as Hawkings. As you will soon see his words recall what can only be called the “great failing” of modern day physics to address the meaning behind the math. Far too many mainstream physicists seem to be stuck in what can only be called the Newtonian era of Consciousness, which is to say that they don’t grasp the idea that consciousness exists at all”
“This mainstream physics is to reality what conventional medicine is to healing. In other words it has all the technical jargon but none of the soul and so it misses the whole point”.
“Conventional Physics is high level mathematics desperately seeking to avoid any discussion of what it all means. You are not allowed to talk about consciousness or free will or the spooky connectedness that is been experimentally demonstrated to exist in all things in the universe. Because that brings up too many questions.”
“Questions about God”
“Philosophy is Dead? It’s a stunning statement not so much in it’s abruptness but in it’s arrogance, which presumes that philosophy’s success is determined only to the degree it can keep up with physics. Conventional physicists believe that physics alone can explain everything. The Grand Design will only become apparent if we can only work out the math.”
“The Theory of Everything? Not just physics stuff? I find that hard to believe given that the average quantum physicist probably doens’t know what’s in a hot dog much less the entire universe”
“There is no definition that defines physics as the study of all that is.”
“Physicists are often wrong”
“The big questions that philosophy seeks to answer. Questions that cannot be asked through the study of physics alone. What is consciousness? Is there a God? What happens after death? How do we know what we know? What does it mean to exist? Can love be measured? How does consciousness interact with matter and energy? For what purpose if any are we here? Are these questions considered so unimportant that the knowledge seeking branch is to be discarded?”
“Shut up and calculate!”
“Consciousness collapses waves of probability into seemingly real particles in our seemingly real world. Without a conscious observer there is nothing to translate the laws of physics into observable, testable evidence in the first place… Consciousness is physics in the same way that E=MC2, which explains that energy is matter just in a different form.”
“Francis Crick stated that awareness was no more than a feeling generated in the brain.”
“If scientists are biochemical robots with no free will, then who do they believe wrote their books? Is Hawking’s The Grand Design a spontaneous regurgitation of biochemical ricochets cascading through his head without any intention, then by definition the book must be a mindless account of physics. In writing that humans are biochemical robots, Hawkings has not only lost his mind but he believed that he never had one to begin with.”
With regards to movement when electrical stimulation is applied to the brain during Awake Brain Surgery “This is a fallacious and illogical argument from the outset. I can tie a string to you and move you around like a puppet but that doesn’t mean that you can decide to move that same toe on your own through conscious intention translated through the brain. The mind you see works being translated through the brain which is a biological organ”
“Determinism is a very dangerous philosophy as it absolves people of their own actions.”
“If we are biochemical machines, it would seem that we could be held accountable to pre-crime! Because as Hawking openly states, that if we knew the complete molecular state of someone’s brain today we can perfectly predict every thought and action they may take in the future.”
“But the belief that human beings lack souls or consciousness is far more serious reason. It can provide a scientific basis for the commission of heinous crimes against humanity… including genocide!” (dum dum DUM)
“If the US government is already involved in the murder of animal species deemed too populous then by extension the same approach to managing human populations would quite easily be justified under the philosophical belief that human beings are mere biological animals too”
“Adolph Hitler would have welcomed such a philosophy, making it all the easier to poison millions of Jews if you don’t think of them as human beings and instead consider them as mindless robotic machines waiting to exterminated. If Hawking’s book had existed, genocide would have been carried out under the name of science and the idea that jews were mere soulless animals to be exterminated at will. And anyone who opposed that idea would have been called unscientific!”
|Instant Drama: Just Add Nazis (zombie Nazis for double drama)|
“Science has given us the Atomic Bomb and other technology with which to commit mass genocide has also given us other technology that justifies genocide. Ethics has kept up with physics, but physics has not kept up with ethics.”
“Under the brand of science, we are all soulless meaningless biochemical robots, who have fooled ourselves into somehow thinking we are self aware.”
