Why Alternative Cancer Treatment

Fraud in Medicine and Clinical Trials

A compilation of evidence[1]

Copyright © 2019 Healing Cancer Naturally

On 14th February 2000, the UK's Daily Telegraph carried an article on page 8 titled CORRUPTION WIDESPREAD by Liz Lightfoot. It stated that a survey carried out by the IPMS (Institute of Professionals, Managers and Specialists, a union) found extensive corruption among government-financed organizations (but which acted independently) and laboratories that had recently been privatised.

A third of the researchers working in these places admitted that they had been approached by the respective funder of the study asking them to either adjust their findings to his preferred outcome, in a manner to make him win further government contracts, or to refrain from publishing unwanted research findings.

Richard Smith, then editor of The BMJ (British Medical Journal, one of the world's oldest medical journals), cited the following examples of questionable research:

  • When studying third-generation oral contraceptives for potential blood clotting "side effects", research funded by pharmaceutical companies found no evidence of such risk, while independently-funded research did.
  • Investigation into passive smoking risks financed by the tobacco industry typically was unable to find any such risk.

While at least peer-reviewed research appearing in the major medical journals meanwhile seems to declare their source(s) of funding as well as any competing interests, research continues to be fraught with unethical practices.

This is evident for instance from a study published in "Perspectives in Clinical Research" in 2013[2] which speaks of widespread fraud in clinical research, calling the area "highly vulnerable" to committing fraud of various types.

With particular respect to cancer treatments and highlighting another angle of the above problem, it is easy to be deceived (and many are) by orthodox medicine's clinical trials "game". Looked at critically, it seems to be used as a stick to beat unapproved treatments with, repeating ad nauseam the erroneous charge of "it's untested, there is only anecdotal evidence to support the claims" - disregarding the fact that clinical studies are basically a number of anecdotal cases lumped together.

Drug trials (even double-blind) are not a magic formula for truth. They are run by scientists who are under pressure and financial incentives to provide positive results for pharmaceutical companies who spend millions of dollars for these trials. As the articles below show, corruption is rampant in drug trials and medicine as a whole. Unfortunately, a Harvard Ph.D. is not always tantamount to scrupulous ethics and honesty.

As shown in History of Alternative Cancer Treatment (2), it can truthfully be stated that pharmaceutical companies run medicine in America (and other countries). They have one all-consuming preocupation; to make as much profit as possible (see Insider proves pharmaceutical industry puts money / profits before patients' health - and life).

The more unhealthy the population, the more money they make. Their priority is diametrically opposed to the medical profession's which is to do what is best for the patient. Pharmaceutical interest groups have seen to it that doctors can only dispense drug company products approved by the FDA who has an unbroken history of corruption and conflict of interest with pharmaceuticals.

Natural or inexpensive treatments pose a major threat to the drug companies' bottom line. So they have devised a way to suppress them; by imposing "testing" that no one will pay for because you cannot patent natural products and thus will never make a profit.

The truth is that the wolf has been placed in charge of the sheep.

The best evidence that any cancer treatment works are the patients alive and side-effect-free because of it.
