Bad medicine gets even worse: 16,000 patients to be injected with two AIDS drugs that don't work

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

I often use the term bad medicine to describe medical practices that
scene harmful to the health of patients, but this study can only be
called insane medicine. The US government is spending $119 million to
fund an experiment that would inject 16,000 Thailand residents with a
combination of two AIDS drugs that each failed and the pennant testing.
For whatever reason, the hope is that these two drugs in combination
will somehow work some magic that neither one could achieve
independently, and that they will help reduce the symptoms of AIDS in
these patients and accordingly improve their life span. Perhaps the
doctors and researchers involved in this project think they're doing the
right thing. Maybe they believe that these two drugs in combination and
somehow work in a way that they couldn't independently, and that these
patients will actually be helped. But the fact that this study is being
allowed to take place raises some serious questions about the
credibility of the medical researchers and the approach of Western
medicine in general which has as its basic tenant: first, do no harm.
These are powerful chemicals, and injecting them into 16,000 patients
seems to be a very poor way to honor that basic tenant of medicine.
Let's face it: these are 16,000 guinea pigs who are being subjected to a
treatment made up of drugs that we already know have failed. The most
likely outcome of this study is a negative result that would damage the
liver is and create systemic toxicity in the bodies of the 16,000
patients receiving the shots. Like I said, that's not just bad
medicine, that's insane medicine.
