“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”[Bold Emphasis Added]

May 26, 2019
Let me preface the following with some vanguard considerations.
Whether directly, through personal health issues, or indirectly, via random meetings in life or health issues of family members or friends, I’ve met quite a few doctors, nurses, surgeons and the like, so what I will state thereafter is more about the for-profit medical system (a.k.a. Big Pharma & Big Medica), than it is about the individuals. That said, just like anywhere else in life, in the medical establishment there are good and bad apples, so it really all depends on the type of individual you get, which couples into the first of the following three contentions that follow.
When I was a 16 years old, I got hospitalized after a short trip to Florida. Narrowing down an incredibly long story down to its core elements, I didn’t know what was going on, and after a week in the hospital, the main doctor couldn’t figure out what was happening. He insisted over and over again that I had to have gone to Mexico and drank some of the ‘bad water’ down there.
First off, I hadn’t gone to Mexico at all, which my Mom could vouch for, but he wasn’t listening. I was so hopped up on pain meds I don’t remember much of what happened at first, but, what I do recall is that after the first week, as my health continued to deteriorate considerably, it set my Mom off.
My Mom unleashed her maternal instinct in a way that I had never seen before and had only seen once since, and that was just a few years back, but that’s a whole ‘nother story. My Mom basically remodeled the entire floor with this doctor ego and went full fire and brimstone on his incompetence. It might seem like ‘incompetence’ is an exaggeration, especially dealing with a doctor and their credentials, but I will let the following point let you decided for yourself. Perhaps incompetence is a strong word, but when someone’s life is on the line, I think it fits.
In any case, not having any of it anymore and worried about my deteriorating health and also tired of the run around and endless tests, she essentially got rid of him until a new doctor arrived. The second doctor that got fortuitously assigned to my case due to my Mom wound up figuring out what I had in hours. That’s when I got diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.
How can two separate doctors that are supposed to handle the same issues have such a disparity? Good and bad apples; the first doctor didn’t listen, the second one did. This is the first personal circumstance in which I got a personal stake in health and began taking it a lot more serious than I ever had. One might think that I just had ‘bad luck’, but it wasn’t only one time this happened to me, but three, and it’s not only me that this happens too.
My second point is that I lost my great grandma on my Mom’s side, and also my grandma on my Mom’s side due to preventable medical mistakes. Losing anyone is a heartrending and soul crippling experience for individuals. Losing someone because someone didn’t read a damn chart is something that will infuriate even a saint. I could say a LOT more about this, but I don’t want to get into it because it’s just too damn a painful.
Third point of contention, but certainly not least, it is in the open literature that preventable medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. This has been known since at least 2001. Where is the media firestorm that there should be on this topic? That will be covered in a second.
In 2001, Dr. Barbara Starfield, published a study in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) that was titled “Is US Health Really The Best In The World”. The study found that (1) 106,000 people die of FDA-approved drugs every single year, and (2) other preventable medical mistakes kill 119,000 people a year, totaling 225,000 people dying every year, like clock-work.
Now, let me ask you something. How is it that a few dozen people allegedly get a virus, and its all over the mainstream media as they expound why vaccinations must be had and so forth. In essence, getting a virus is news. But 225,000 people dying when THEY SHOULDN’T BE isn’t? How does that make any sense?
Here we must insert the timeless: cui bono? Who benefits? Big Pharma & Big Medica.
Not only would big Pharma & Big Medica benefit extensively from the propaganda behind vaccinations, but they also benefit extensively by the mainstream media not airing out the truth that preventable medical mistakes is the third leading cause of death. How can this happen? Simple; money.
A few years ago, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stated that 70% of News Advertising Revenue Comes From Big Pharma. Do you really think the mainstream media is going to bite the hand that feeds? Of course not.
Not only that, but even worse, Big Pharma has total legal immunity in respect to vaccinations. To quote an excerpt from the article, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Drops Truth Bomb Live on TV:
“The pharmaceutical industry is so powerful,” he explained. “They give $5.4 billion a year to the media. They’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there is no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.“
Asked how things could get this bad, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explained that Congress granted Big Pharma “blanket legal immunity” when it comes to vaccines.
Big Pharma became a law unto themselves. They can put toxic ingredients in your vaccines, they can seriously injure your child – but you cannot sue them.
How is that possible? The system wasn’t always that way. In fact:
“What you have to understand is that the vaccine regimen changed dramatically around 1989. The reason it changed, Tucker, is that Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money, did something they have never done for any other industry – they gave blanket legal immunity to all the vaccine companies.
This issue is so egregious that:
“… no matter how sloppy the line protocols, no matter how absent the quality control, no matter how toxic the ingredients, or egregious the injury to your child, you cannot sue them.
“So there’s no depositions, there’s no discovery, there’s no class action suits. All of a sudden vaccines became enormously profitable.”
To think, vaccines are only one tentacle of Big Pharma and Big Medical, and they lead to injuries that can also be prevented and yet are not counted under the current system, but I digress.
The point is that, there is a lot amyss within the medical establishment, and it’s all in the open literature.
In a world where things worked the right way, there wouldn’t be a quarter million people dying from things that can be prevented. In a world where things worked the right way, Big Pharma wouldn’t have blanket immunity if they were doing their job and vaccines were truly safe. In a world where things worked the right way, you wouldn’t have Big Pharma and Big Medica advertising to people, which is illegal in all countries but two. And you guessed it, the United States is one of them. Isn’t that convenient?
Only through proactive education will individuals really pierce the veil and become privy to such issues above, and others.
The system in its entirety, as history has shown, changes from the bottom up, and rarely ever changes from the top down. It changes because individuals like you, me, and others start finding out the truth about what matters, and not what the mainstream media tells you that matters.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice, and thankfully, there is plenty of information to find out the truth when it comes to subject matter like this.
Educate yourself, educate others, then and only then will the system begin to change.
 This is not the only time in my life in which doctors didn’t listen, making already ongoing issues worse, but that will be covered in the future.
 The 225,000 deaths is actually a conservative estimate, if you can believe that. There’s been studies showing preventable deaths as high as 800,000+ per year. And unfortunately, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
