When I wrote my book, Death by Modern Medicine: Seeking Safe Solutions, I listed the dozen different ways that modern medicine had betrayed the public. It's a book that exposes all that's evil and corrupt about modern medicine. But recently I found a book that might take us beyond the betrayal.
Go to http://www.blindedbyscience.co.uk to receive a download of this book called Blinded by Science. It's free until April 30, 2011 and I'm in love with it because it's so brilliant!
You get the introduction and first chapter immediately but then for each succeeding chapter you have to make comments in a forum about what you read. You'll not only get to interact with others but if the author, Matthew Silverstone likes what you say, he'll include your comments in the final version of the book.
Matthew has created a new phenomenon - interactive book writing! It's also brainstorming that could take on the 100th monkey effect as more people realize how blinded and complacent science has made us.
I intend to join in the forum and make comments because I know that we are blinded by science and I want to talk with other people who feel the same way.
Matthew says he wants 'to move science in the right direction if only by a small amount.' I don't know exactly what that direction is, but I'm willing to play.
Matthew Silverstone calls himself a serial entrepreneur. He has a degree in economics and a masters degree in international business. His career came to a halt midway through the launch of a major internet social network site due to the illness of his son, for whom he became a full time carer. It was watching the lack of medical help from the established sectors of science that led him to start questioning everything that he had been told about science.
Basically, Matthew Silverstone's brain is outside the box of scientific specialism because he hasn't been indoctrinated into any of those specialties. Such specialism has kept inquiring minds from collaborating on commonsense truths through this whole century.
For example, Matthew's research led him to understand that homeopathy is explained by '...the fact that water changes its vibrational frequency to that of any substance that it comes into contact with.' He's discovered that homeopathy '...works on the principles of physics and not biochemistry.' This conclusion could only be reached by a non-physicist and non-biochemist. A specialist's approach serves only to shine the bright light of his biased knowledge into another's eyes. Hence Matthew's title, Blinded by Science, is so apropos.
Here's one of my scientific dilemmas. Currently I'm studying pico-sized minerals. That's the actual size of minerals that plants incorporate through size-dependent rootlets, allowing us to ingest and absorb them fully in our diet. I'm convinced they are much healthier for us than minerals of much greater size like calcium carbonate that is so big it's only 4 percent absorbed (but being ingested in thousand-gram dosages). Since medicine hasn't gotten around to studying pico-sized minerals, it's as if they don't exist.
Far removed from medicine, physicists have discovered that the cell's mineral channels that allow minerals to enter our cells, are between 4-5 angstroms in diameter! Which means that pico-minerals are at the most efficient and effective size to enter cells. However, since medical doctors don't talk to physicists, this knowledge falls into a bottomless abyss.
Thankfully, Matthew's forum will provide a means for specialists in all fields to communicate and discuss their achievements and their failings so we can break out of the blinding box that science has put us in.
