Medical fraud

Following revelation that new cholesterol advice came from board members who profit from statin drug makers, medical leaders see no conflict of interest

This article isn't about the comical fact that six out of nine board members who issued the new cholesterol guidelines have been paid by the very pharmaceutical companies who stand to benefit from those new guidelines. (Lower cholesterol guidelines will equate to billions in profits from the sales of statin drugs.) Rather, this is about the outrageous defense of these financial ties -- and the failure to disclose such ties -- by the board members themselves and leaders of the medical community. Essentially, these people are saying that having financial ties to pharmaceutical companies is just fine, and there's nothing wrong with a health advisory board being made up of people who stand to financially benefit from issuing such advice.

This is a clear example of dishonesty and the near complete lack of ethics in modern medicine. The relationships between doctors, board members, researchers, drug companies and the FDA are incestuous, and as long as more drugs are being sold to the public, everybody pockets a bit of the profits. It's a drug racket, folks, and you're watching it in full swing right now.

In a normal, ethical society, these board members should have been disqualified based on their financial ties to the pharmaceutical companies that stand to benefit most from this new cholesterol lowering decision. That they did not excuse themselves -- nor even bother to disclose their relationships with pharmaceutical companies -- is further proof that the drug racket is alive and well in America.

Technically, the system is a criminal organization made up of drug makers (pharmaceutical companies), drug dealers (physicians and pharmacists) and drug promoters (the FDA). Much of the so-called science behind these drugs is outright fraudulent, the marketing is based on false claims produced by the fraudulent science, and the long-term health effects of these drugs are devastating to the American people. The FBI should be called in right now to investigate this drug cartel and arrest the principles who are committing these crimes against the American public.

And yet, the silence is deafening. This drug racket runs so deeply through private industry, the popular press, and the federal government that it's almost too big to find any investigative body willing to touch it. It's like trying to get the Italian police to investigate corruption in the Italian government -- it goes nowhere, because everbody's bought off. In the U.S. medical industry, everybody's bought off, too: most doctors, most publishers and broadcast networks, and the FDA.

That's how we've ended up where we are today: a society that blindly accepts and follows the advice of a group of nine people who say everybody's cholesterol should be reduced, and who are simultaneously taking money from the very drug companies that will benefit the most from that advice. Can the racket be any more obvious, folks? This is a blatant health scam, and they're getting away with it!

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
