Dirty Politics of the Cancer Industry

Dr. Ralph Moss Speaks Out

http://www.cancerdecisions.com/beatcancer_frm.html

Excerpt ~

Yes, I'm really angry. Why?

Because I hear every day from my clients and subscribers who have gone through hell dealing with everything from shockingly insensitive doctors to nightmarish insurance problems.

I'm angry that in the land of freedom, Americans are still denied access to dozens of effective cancer treatments that are available in other countries around the world.

I'm angry that insurance companies refuse to pay for so many treatments that patients desperately need.

This includes experimental conventional approaches, as well as alternative clinics, herbal medicine, acupuncture, meditation, yoga, chiropractic, and many more.

I'm angry about the "Big Lie" that would have you believe that antioxidants harm cancer patients when the evidence is exactly the opposite.

I'm also angry that patients are almost never told how to use natural therapies to decrease chemo and radiation's side effects.

I'm angry because doctors are supposed to tell patients about all the alternatives (this is part of "informed consent") but they almost never tell patients about complementary and alternative treatment options, except to dismiss them or warn against them.

I'm angry that group therapy is not widely prescribed for cancer patients despite the fact that studies show that it can double survival time.

I'm angry that a few opportunists make a fortune selling useless cancer "cures" to desperate patients.

I'm angry that the Food and Drug Administration denies people's rights to choose their own treatments.

A child with a medulloblastoma for which there is no conventional treatment is sitting in a hotel room in Houston because the FDA is blocking his parentsā right to choose an alternative practitioner.

I'm angry that the Federal Government has failed to test a single alternative cancer treatment, despite years of efforts - including my own work as an advisor to several government agencies- to get them to do so.

I'm angry at the glacial slowness of action in the Government.

I'm angry about the Mafia-like control of the cancer field by the drug industry, through their domination of virtually every single cancer research and treatment institution.

Thousands of top cancer researchers around the world are on the payroll of a dozen drug companies, and these same drug company executives sit on the Boards of major cancer centers.

They also dominate the major oncology organizations. Patients need to know about the dirty politics of the cancer industry!

I'm angry that drug companies offer doctors pay-offs for enrolling patients in clinical trials.

I'm angry about the mergers taking place between giant pharmaceutical companies.

Enormous monopolies are being formed which will further restrict freedom of choice for patients.

I'm angry that the "scientific" studies of new drugs, funded by huge companies, almost always turn in favorable results and are approved by the FDA.

It costs at least $231 million to get full FDA approval for a new drug.

Brilliant scientists working independently and without this kind of funding simply can't afford to get their treatments tested and approved.

To date, not a single non-toxic cancer drug has ever been approved by the FDA.

If we're serious about curing cancer, we've got to get greed for profits out of the research process!

And my kid sis, but with only Chemo, that was all it took. She so desparately wanted to know about alternatives but her oncology "technician" only knew about chemo and frightened her away from anything else. She deserved so much better than she got. So did her surviving family and friends.

Namaste`
