He who pays the piper, calls the tune

You probably never thought about it, but did you know that 45% of the people in the US take at least one prescription drug. Don't you think that sounds extreme? How can the mentality of this country be such that almost 50% of the people are on legal drugs? Why do doctors prescribe so many drugs? Is it because we need them? Surely there are other alternatives? Here is the missing piece of the story.

Long ago and far away, about 1901, one of the richest men in the world contacted another of the other richest men in the world about a proposition. John D. Rockefeller went to Andrew Carnegie and said the two of them ought to invest in drug companies. Drugs will be big business in the future. And he outlined a plan to Carnegie about how they could make that statement really true. If you could control the practice of medicine, there could be astronomical profits from the sale of legal drugs.

"In the years prior to World War II, there came into existence an international cartel, centered in Germany, that dominated the entire world's chemical and drug industries. It had spread its operations to ninety-three countries and was a powerful economic and political force in all countries. It was known as I.G. Farben." When John D. Rockefeller interlocked his American-based, international empire with that of I.G. Farben in 1928 "there was created the largest and most powerful cartel the world has ever known. Not only has that cartel survived through the years, it has grown and prospered. Today it plays a major role in both the science and politics of cancer therapy." according to G. Edward Griffin. (1)

If you have all the money in the world and a pocket or two full of politicians anything can happen. The process began in 1901 with the creation of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. It included on its board some politically oriented "medical" names as Doctors L. Emmett Holt, Christian A. Herter, T. Mitchell Pruden, Hermann M. Briggs, William H. Welch, Theobald Smith, and Simon Flexner. Christian Herter was slated for bigger things becoming Secretary of State under President Eisenhower. Simon Flexner also was destined for larger success. Although his name never became as well-known as that of Herter, he and his brother, Abraham Flexner, probably influenced the lives of more people and in a more profound way than has any Secretary of State. (Abraham Flexner was also on the staff of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.)(1) These two tax free foundations worked very closely together.

The medical profession needed some serious attentions prior to 1900. It was so unregulated that you could get a medical certificate mail-order. It was ripe for reform and regulations. Or as Rockefeller saw ripe for a great opportunity. The American Medical Association also had an interest in cleaning its own house. The AMA created a Council on Medical Education for the express purpose of surveying the status of medical training throughout the country and of making specific recommendations for its improvement. But by 1908 it had run into serious difficulty as a result of committee differences and insufficient funding. It was into this void that the Rockefeller-Carnegie combine moved with brilliant strategy and perfect timing. Henry S. Pritchett, the president of the Carnegie Foundation, approached the AMA and simply offered to take over the entire project.(1)

The AMA had already done most of the work. It cost the Carnegie Foundation a measly $10,000 to influence the opinion of the American public and reap huge benefits from it.

In 1910 The Flexner Report was published. The much awaited report was circulated nationally. It did as expected, it did "much to develop public opinion." The report was correct is several areas:

bulletIt pointed out the inadequacies of existing medical education at the time. No one could take exception with that.
bulletIt also proposed a wide range of sweeping changes, most of which were entirely sound. No one could take exception with those, either.

But it included one other key point hidden among the valid concerns:

bulletThe report recommended emphatically the strengthening of courses in pharmacology and the addition of research departments at all "qualified" medical schools.

The Flexner report was considered to be beyond reproach. It did do a valuable service at the time considering the state of the medical profession. But the true purpose of the report became very obvious immediately after it was released. The Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations poured hundreds of millions of dollars into schools that were ripe for being controlled. The schools that wouldn't conform to their control were put out of business. In 1905 there were 160 medical schools. By 1927 that number had dropped to 80. Many probably deserved to go out of business but the criteria was not how good the school was, it was whether the foundations could influence their operations.

These two foundations plus some other similar ones like the Ford Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation and others have poured over a billion dollars into the medical schools of the United States since 1910. The first medical school to get money was John Hopkins Medical School in 1913. The rest of the list of recipient colleges is pretty impressive: Washington University in St Louis, Yale, University of Iowa, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, University of Virginia, University of Georgia, University of Cincinnati, Howard University, Meharry Medical School, Harvard, Vanderbuilt, Columbia, Cornell, Tulane Western Reserve, Rochester, Duke, Emory, The Memorial Hospital in New York and Northwestern, Kansas, Rochester medical schools. And many more across the country.

It was mentioned earlier that Abraham Flexner and his brother Dr. Simon Flexner were to be some of the most influential men in the lives of the American public. Add to those two the name of Dr. William Welch of John Hopkins. These three men changed the direction of the practice of medical and education in America. They not only were involved in giving grants to medical schools, but they also were advisors and counselors to the people running these institutions.

The next most influential medical organization in North America was the Association of American Medical Colleges (AMA). This group was a primary means of controlling the medical colleges and the medical profession. The Association not only controlled the curriculum of the schools, it also provided continuing education for the graduates and propaganda to the public.  It was funded and controlled from the beginning by these foundations.

This group controlled the top positions of the colleges and medical education by putting their own people on boards and in administrative slots. The Association of American Medical Colleges created the curriculum and set standards. The only missing piece of the total control was the academic side, or the teachers. They have controlled this area as well since 1913 but providing fellowships and scholarships for training of instructors.

The medical profession we have today comes directly from this massive effort to push drugs. I know this sounds too strange to be true, but it is. That is why almost half the people in the US are taking some prescription drug. The whole profession is aimed at solving health issues with drugs. Wonder why your doctor only has a minimal exposure to health and nutrition in medical college or afterwards? It isn't being taught. And those in the system do not realize there is a hidden commercial agenda in their training. They have been trained to prescribe drugs. They have been selected by their openness to learn how to prescribe drugs. The entire structure was designed to market prescription drugs. All the players have been trained that prescription drugs are the answer regardless of what the question is.

So what can we conclude about this historical perspective? It goes without saying the approach to medical training has been tremendously influenced by an orientation towards dispensing drugs. And it adds an insight as to why there is such a bias against prevention of disease through proper nutrition and the use of supplements. The drug companies do not make any profits from people being healthy or from the sales of supplements.

The health care system treats only the symptoms and not the underlining cause of the health problem. In short, the health care system is not about health, it is about sickness. - WHATíS WRONG WITH MIRACLE MEDICINE? By Dr. Lee Warren, B.A., D.D

The root of our present medical problem began during the middle of the nineteenth century when the germ theory (i.e., specific diseases are caused by specific germs and germs are monomorphic) of French scientist Louis Pasteur was favored over the cellular theory (i.e., the importance of maintaining a clean and nourished internal environment where germs are pleomorphic and exist in harmony in a healthy body) championed by his contemporary French professor Antoine Bechamp. The former treats symptoms of a weakened immune system (i.e., killing germ, bacteria, virus, one by one as they appear in the body), the latter works to boost the immune system and allow it and other systems of the body to work optimally (i.e., to maintain an internal state that repels disease and promote health). [NOTE: This does not imply that allopathic medicine should not have a place in healing. Anyone shot by a gun, hit by a car, or severely burned would be better served in the emergency rooms of most western hospitals. However, it should not be promoted as the only form of healing, to the exclusion of alternative practices that have survived the test of time.)

Because allopathic doctors donít encourage proper nutrition and internal hygiene, they imply patients can eat whatever they want (including refined, processed, fast foods, sugar, etc.) and come see them when they get sick. When disease strikes most westerners are totally unprepared for illness, but ready to pay any amount to ease the pain (i.e., remove the symptoms).(2) - WHATíS WRONG WITH MIRACLE MEDICINE?

Why did John D Rockefeller have such a strong interest in the drug industry?

"Most of these drugs were petroleum based and this added to the coffers of the Rockefellers who owned the largest oil monopoly in this country. They saw the medical industry using drugs as another product that expanded their oil business. These medical cartels and super rich families greatly influenced government legislature. The FDA regulates all medical protocols in America, which are drugs, surgery and radiation."(2) - WHATíS WRONG WITH MIRACLE MEDICINE? By Dr. Lee Warren, B.A., D.D.
