The medical physician of today is merely the product of over a century of conditioning in the “legitimate drug” culture.
It is historical fact that the pharmaceutical industry has been the major force responsible for the narrow, arrogant and simple minded path that has brought physicians success in less than ten percent of the diseases they are called upon to treat.
Yet profits are not generated from successes, they are generated from treatments.
The pharmaceutical complex provides research grants, contracts and advertising support responsible for the existence of the many thousands of journals published each year.
This guarantees virtual control over scientific and medical direction and thought.
The result has been highly profitable.
The great majority of physicians are honest, dedicated, and sincere scientists.
They truly believe that they are on the “cutting edge” of medicine and that anyone who pursues another path is either misguided or ill-informed.
As long as physicians continue to pursue the magic pharma bullet, and ignore thousands of years of experience; iatrogenic (medically caused) illness and death will become more prevalent than ever.
