The Pharmaceutical Industry: A Dangerous BusinessBy J. Holcombe for Salem-News.com
The truth about the 1918 flu exposes the threat the pharmaceutical industry poses today.
(LONDON) - [George Bush] began his remarks with the now-obligatory scare-story from 1918: ‘At this moment, there is no pandemic influenza in the United States or the world. But if history is our guide, there is reason to be concerned. In the last century, our country and the world have been hit by three influenza pandemics -- and viruses from birds contributed to all of them. The first, which struck in 1918, killed over half-a-million Americans and more than 20 million people across the globe…’ William Engdahl, international investigative journalist
The bird and mammalian species took hold on the earth approximately 65 million years ago, i.e. the same time as the dinosaurs went extinct. So did the flu and other viruses of all the surviving species. Since then, all those viruses have been mating and mutating among themselves without the sky caving in due to any infection. Therefore, any talk of a bird or swine flu pandemic with the probability to kill millions of people is either a purposeful or hallucinogenic nonsense to make profit on the backs of the innocent following.. Shiv Chopra, microbiologist, veterinarian and vaccine expert
On reading first hand accounts of the 1918 flu, the idea that the "Spanish flu" was a single, new and terribly virulent virus begins to come apart immediately. The simultaneous appearance of the flu in widely distance places at a time when there was no air travel was impossible to explain. That 14 or more (leftover and possible spoiled) vaccines were being forced on soldiers and the flu appeared first on widely scattered military bases would explain it quite easily. Symptoms of bloody fluid in the lungs, of young people for the first time ever dying in as great a number as older people, and of people well in the morning but dead by evening have been the terrifying hallmark of the "the disease," and also hard to explain (adding to the terror). But those are symptoms of aspirin overdose and at a time when aspirin was being intensely promoted by Bayer, which makes all three terrible and "mysterious" symptoms easy to explain as well. Aspirin causes hemorrhaging at the high doses being given, affects young as well as old, and is quickly lethal.
What is left is a picture of the power of a relatively new pharmaceutical industry to get military to force dozens of its (often spoiled) vaccines on soldiers around the world and its advertising of aspirin with no dosage warming,
This overturns the myth of the 1918 flu as a terrible disease which "medicine of that day" wasn't sophisticated enough to handle as well as leaves the projection of "terrible new diseases," as terrible as the 1918, threatening mankind in the millions, without any foundation. (That idea has shaky legs to stand on anyway.) Instead, the human catastrophe which occurred in 1918 offers a view of the a new paradigm - an industrial multinational pharmaceutical business, focused on profit and selling synthetic (coal tar-based) drugs and vaccines with little knowledge of their effects and no limits on their use, though advertising (PR), government and military) - as it began to muscle out a local, health-rather-than-profit-centered practice of medicine and one derived from centuries of knowledge of organic (non-synthetic, that is directly from nature) medicines and how to use them safely and effectively.
The 1918 "pandemic" is a significant moment in history. The deaths of 20,000,000 people appears related to the ascendancy and power of a new profit-based, government enforced, global "health" industry, what Matthias Rath has labeled "the Business of Disease" - one that profits from diseases while at fundamental financial odds with cures and maintenance of health. The current movie, the Idiot Cycle shows that those industries giving us cancer are precisely the same industries that profit from it. But Rath goes further.
"It is not in the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry to prevent common diseases – the maintenance and expansion of diseases is a precondition for the financial growth of this industry. ...
Vitamins and other effective natural health therapies that optimize cellular metabolism threaten the pharmaceutical “business with disease” because they target the cellular cause of today’s most common diseases - and these natural substances cannot be patented.
The pharmaceutical industry took control of medical schools some time go, and with its financial clout wields power over media and governments. From there, it has been able to rewrite history and erase its own role in causing millions of deaths during the "Spanish flu" through a conglomeration of its disease-causing preventatives (vaccines) and then its lethal treatments (aspirin). The 1918 flu became transformed into a tale of a terrifying solitary disease, new to mankind, with the public taught "if only there had been vaccines then ...." (implying they would have saved people, not revealing they existed then, were the most like trigger for the flood of diseases that suddenly occurred, and maimed and killed people).
Homeopathic medicine (natural medicine)'s effectiveness in saving most of the people who came to it versus the extremely high percentage of deaths from allopathic medicine and synthetic drugs was lost in that accounting. And there has been more than a century of concerted pharmaceutical industry efforts through corrupted government agencies to destroy information
To protect the strategic development of its investment business against the threat from effective, natural and non-patentable therapies, the pharmaceutical industry has – over an entire century - used the most unscrupulous methods, such as:
(1) Withholding life-saving health information from millions of people. It is simply unacceptable that today so few know that the human body cannot produce vitamin C and lysine, two key molecules for connective tissue stability and disease prevention.
(2) Discrediting natural health therapies. The most common way is through global PR campaigns organized by the Pharma-Cartel that spread lies about the alleged side effects of natural substances – molecules that have been used by Nature for millennia.
(3) Banning by law the dissemination of information about natural health therapies. To that end, the pharmaceutical industry has placed its lobbyists in key political positions in key markets and leading drug export nations.
20,000,000 deaths during the 1918 "pandemic" provided an immense but unheard warning that a shift to a profit-based "health" system will be fundamentally antithetical to health because its profits derive from disease and there are any limits on what such a system will foist on human beings to sell products and any truth that presents obstacles to those sales undermine the systems' primary goal, increasing money. Given a rich and powerful enough pharmaceutical industry able to control media, governments and military, such a system almost automatically goes out of control out of its financial obligation to deliver for it is rationally driven to stop information about and access to anyone or anything that heals. Since nature itself heals, the pharmaceutical industry has now become pitted not only against cures and the truth but against nature itself. At that point, which is where they are now, the pharmaceutical industry is a inherently a danger to mankind.
The truth about the 1918 flu exposes the threat the pharmaceutical industry poses. One might wonder how much profit did Bayer and the vaccine manufacturers of the day make as millions died.
The U.S. government’s investigation of all the factors leading to the Second World War in 1946 came to the conclusion that without IG Farben ["nothing more than a powerful cartel of BASF, Bayer, Hoechst, and other German chemical and pharmaceutical companies] the Second World War would simply not have been possible. We have to come to grips with the fact that it was not the psychopath, Adolph Hitler, or bad genes of the German people that brought about the Second World War. Economic greed by companies like Bayer, BASF and Hoechst was the key factor in bringing about the Holocaust.
