(NaturalNews) Self-proclaimed advocates of "science-based" medicine are hard at work trying to eliminate government funding for any form of medical education or treatment that is not conventional in nature. The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a new lobbying group of 400 "doctors, medical researchers, and scientists," collectively known as "Friends of Science in Medicine" (FSM), is trying to stop all public colleges and universities in Australia from teaching any courses in alternative or complementary medicine.

Obviously disturbed by exploding global interest in alternative therapies and medical ideologies, these arrogant apologists of drugs and surgery want to force their antiquated dogma on the masses through intimidation and government tyranny. Rather than allow students freedom of choice in choosing their own coursework, these "Friends of the Pharmaceutical Industry" would rather forcibly indoctrinate all medical students with their own personal medical opinions.

Because of overwhelming popularity and interest among students, many universities now offer not only courses, but also degrees, in subjects like naturopathy and homeopathy, both of which are viable, proven methods of medical treatment. But if FSM has its way, coursework and degrees in these and other subjects will no longer be available, and students will only be able to learn about the latest drug-based therapies.

Not surprisingly, one of the members of FSM is Sir Gustav Nossal, who is credited with inventing the cervical cancer vaccine. Today, that vaccine is peddled in the form of Merck & Co.'s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix, which have together injured tens of thousands of young children, and killed more than 100 others (http://sanevax.org/).

And FSM co-founder John Dwyer, a government advisor on "consumer health fraud," believes not only that government funding for alternative medicine courses in subjects like Chinese herbal medicine and chiropractic should cease, but also that Australia's government health insurance should stop reimbursing for alternative treatments altogether.

To demonstrate how these people think, during a 2004 interview with Sixty Minutes in Australia, Dwyer made outrageous statements to reporter Charles Wooley that there is no diet capable of killing cancer cells. This, of course, is the anti-nutrition position of many in the so-called "science-based" medicine movement who believe food and nutrition have no place in health (http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au).

'Science-based' medicine, government-run healthcare, and the elimination of health freedom

What these supporters of "science-based" medicine are trying to do is nothing short of medical tyranny. Far from actually representing science, such folks are the true pseudoscientific quacks who, now that their religion is crumbling, are grasping at straws to prevent the spread of information and knowledge that differs from what they were programmed to believe.

Sadly, their efforts have already been successful in places like the U.K. and Germany. Beginning this year in the U.K., for instance, public universities will no longer offer any courses in alternative medicine. And in both the U.K. and Germany, officials are considering removing alternative therapies from the list of medical treatments they will cover under their government-run healthcare systems.

If there ever was a more perfect illustration of why government-run healthcare is a bad idea, this is it. Taxpayers in both the U.K. and Germany may soon be forced to pay into a system that restricts their access to any therapies outside the drugs and surgery paradigm. Is this the type of system we want here in America?
