My Participation In Corruption Of The Medical Industry!steemCreated with Sketch.

in life •  2 years ago

This is the true story of my participation in the corruption of the medical industry. A decade ago I assisted at an event sponsored by one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. I was only a small cog in the machine but the bigger picture was clear.

The event was held on an island in South East Asia. The attendees were several hundred Doctors whose practices involved treating families and children.

Only later did I realise that I was directly participating in the corruption of these Doctors. The following sequence of events was to change my perspective irrevocably.

Hippocrates & The Hippocratic Oath

First I must explain the Hippocratic Oath to those of you who are unaware of it. The Hippocratic Oath is named after the Greek physician Hippocrates who is known as the father of western medicine. All the Doctors participating in this event had sworn a form of the the Hippocratic Oath to become a Doctor.

In part the Hippocratic Oath says:

  • "Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption " - emphasis added

  • "I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel" - emphasis added

In addition to taking the Hippocratic Oath, Doctors are required to complete a certain number of study hours per year. This is to ensure they are up-to-date on the latest medical information.

Where Is The Medical Corruption?

The event I was assisting with was held for one week in a resort situated on an idyllic tropical beach. On behalf of the pharmaceutical company we chartered flights and flew the Doctors to the island for the entire week of "study" . The Doctors were allowed to bring their wives and children. Many bought their mistresses. All expenses were paid by the pharmaceutical company: flights, transfers, accommodation, food & drink - everything was included!

I did not realise what I was engaged in - but that changed on the first day...

The first morning I set up one chair for every one of the hundreds of Doctors in the huge auditorium. I ensured the sound system was working then I waited for the Doctors to arrive. I was delighted to see that the first Doctor arriving happened to be my own personal physician. I had known her for years and have a very high regard for her. She remains to this day the best Doctor I have ever known. I hesitate to add this detail here but it is what happened.

A further 10 Doctors slowly ambled into the auditorium and the presentation began. As the day progressed the few Doctors who had turned up drifted away until the only people remaining in the auditorium were myself, the pharmaceutical representative and my Doctor. By the morning of the third day the only people attending the lectures were the 3 of us! We sat in a small group surrounded by hundreds of empty chairs. For the final 2 days of the week I only set up 3 chairs.

The other Doctors seemed to know the drill and had excused themselves immediately from all lectures. They preferred to spend their time on the beach, eating, shopping or locked in their bedrooms!

At the time I did not care.

However I soon began to work out what was going on...

The pharmaceutical company was funding the "event" and paying the Doctors' expenses. At the end of the week the pharmaceutical company certified that all Doctors had completed their yearly hours of study. The Doctors didn't have to attend the lectures if they did not wish and received an all-expenses-paid holiday.

It seemed logical that the funding for the event was derived from the profits accrued from the sale of pharmaceuticals by the Doctors - but this would surely be a conflict of interest!

Everybody looked happy and it was clear that this yearly all-expenses-paid holiday for hundreds of Doctors fulfilling their study quota was a regular and accepted practice within the medical community.

There are some serious problems with this scenario:

  1. It seemed implicit that these Doctors had all achieved certain sales quotas for the sponsor pharmaceutical company. Those who had sold enough were invited on the yearly study jaunt. Doctor sales quotas for pharmaceuticals don't officially exist as this would represent a major conflict of interest. I wonder if the Doctors with low sales figures were invited back the following year?

  2. The pharmaceutical company was confirming that these Doctors had completed their yearly study quota without any oversight from a medical body. The vast majority of the Doctors did not attended a single minute of the lectures. Even if they had attended the entire presentation was a planned sales pitch exclusively for the pharmaceutical company's products. No discussion of any other medical topic transpired!

  3. The many families who these Doctors treated were completely unaware of a potential conflict of interest between the pharmaceutical company, the Doctors and the Government which would place the needs of their families behind the profits of the sponsor.

  4. As the event was a one sided sales pitch there was minimal discussion about the potential health risks associated with the various products of this pharmaceutical company. The statistics of people who die every year from new pharmaceutical products makes it clear that they can be "deadly" and kill many people. I wonder if any of those hundreds of Doctors had ever prescribed one of the pharmaceutical company's drugs that had an adverse health effect on one of their patients?

  5. This event was hosted by just one pharmaceutical company but I suspect all the other large pharmaceutical companies were hosting similar yearly events.

  6. Although this transpired in South East Asia I have been reliably informed that corrupt practices of collusion between pharmaceutical companies, Doctors and Governments happen all over the world. Update: the comments to this article add credence to this view.

  7. I believe the pharmaceutical companies change their event suppliers regularly so this situation does not become too obvious. I was able to work out what was going on in just 3 days!

  8. Implicit in this corruption were multitudes of people from the pharmaceutical company, civil servants from the Government agencies and hundreds of Doctors. It was so obvious what was happening but everyone was quite happy with their pay packets, so everybody was keeping quiet. Literally thousands of unsuspecting members of the public were funding this process to their detriment and the corruption of medical integrity. Hippocrates must be turning in his grave!

I draw your attention again to the Hippocratic Oath and the words "corruption" and "deadly" :

  • "Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption " - emphasis added

  • "I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel" - emphasis added

I am sure you are curious as to what became of my Doctor?

At the end of the week I asked my Doctor directly what she thought about what was going on. She skirted the topic not wanting to discuss her colleagues but I could see she was distressed. She was the only Doctor who attended every minute of that event, taking notes and asking uncomfortable questions. Her conduct gave me the greatest faith in her. I doubt she was invited back the following year.

I wish I could draw back the curtain and know the integrity of all doctors!

What happened to me?

The truths of this experience took a few years to sink in. After I digested and analysed what I had seen my perspective changed. I began to study. I learnt about the history of our medical systems. I studied the shift from homeopathic medicine to allopathic medicine.

This knowledge led to a paradigm shift in my perspective that has changed my outlook on many things to this day. I now have a very different view on the veterinary/medical industry and our food supply. I am fascinated with natural healing. These are all excellent topics that I could write more about if you are interested!

I have intentionally omitted names, dates and locations - I am sure you understand! I am only relating my personal experiences.

True, the rabbit hole is very deep.

Have worked in the pharmaceutical litigation industry, I can verify that the rabbit hole is very deep indeed. The incentives to falsify studies and lie are just too high.

I'd love to read or listen (if you prefer to post a video) about your firsthand experiences. if you do can let me know by replying to this comment or another comment that I will see? The more insiders that can share their stories the better it will be for humanity.

Absolutely! Because you asked I will make this a priority and will inform you once it is done. My wife and I, both attorneys, worked for a plaintiff's law firm and she was a lead researcher on drug lawsuits. She made the firm and her clients millions because of the shady things big pharma is doing. The sad part is; no matter how much they pay out to their victims, it is a fraction of the fortunes they are making by selling their misrepresented product.

Thank you @jockey ...upvoted & followed. I'm aware of this dodgyness. I am a homeopath & spend most of my working week treating people from the ill-effects of allopathic medicine. I do a (fairly irregular) series of posts called 'A Day In The Life of a Homeopath...' where I pick a day & then comment on each case that comes through the door. This is my latest from a few weeks ago: https://steemit.com/health/@alanfreestone/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-homeopath-june-2017

Thank you for your comments mate! I have also upvoted and followed! I have a lot of amazing stories from a wild life around the world to post! I will continue to post them! The medical switch from homeopathic to allopathic medicine in the 17th century (I think) is a very interesting topic! =)

·
·

Thank you :)

I think you're alluding to the Rockerfeller-funded destruction of homeopathy & eclectic medicine (herbalism) by the AMA (American Medical Association) in the latter half of the 19th century. Apparently 50% of US doctors where homeopaths or eclectics in 1850s... 50 years later the AMA had successfully engineered for all their medical colleges to be closed (colleges that accepted women & black people) & a allopath who was even FRIENDS with a homeopath could be struck off & barred from practice. It's been pretty much erased from history though.

·
·
·

Excellent comment mate! I am fascinated by this subject and the small pockets of ancient herbal wisdom still left. The Church used to burn women as witches in the Dark Ages for understanding herbs. I seek out traditional healers around the world. I badly damaged my foot yesterday and the local village healer where I live on Bali is bringing his herbs and massage skills to fix my foot!

Quite a story, thanks for sharing your experience. This goes to prove the points I made in my big pharma series. I have my opinion about the pharmaceutical industry from a scientist's point of view, and it's good to get another "insider" experience from a doctor's perspective. Pharmaceutical events funding are routine. Hell, even during science conventions I often saw a load of pharma kiosks scattered between the lab equipment sellers. That's because doctors often attend research conventions, so pharmaceuticals try to reach them on every occasion they can.

·

Thank you very much! I will be reading your big pharma series with pleasure! =)

This is nothing.

The corruption inside is far deeper.
This was a benign sales and marketing push in comparison.

And yes, to all other who might read this, doctors have quite modern rocky-fellow medicine when they learned what was actually going on.

Someday I may speak about my experiences.
Sorry, all I can do now is say that @jockey is not lying, and it is far worse.

·

Please do share. And no, he's not lying at all.

Yes please do share @builderofcastles! Great name by the way! Thank you for your endorsement @drakos! =)

Thank you very much! I was inspired to write about this yesterday after a dentist disagreed with my post on oil pulling for a healthier and happier smile. I felt I needed to explain my perspective on our conventional medical industry. I agree that the corruption runs much deeper but I am not sure this event was benign. It could well be that families and children were injured from these drugs and the doctors, pharmaceutical company and Government were to blame! Thank you also for your endorsement!

Power corrupt and absolut POWER corrupt absolutly.☝

·
·

Correct! Thank you ! =)

I'm an RN...and I can attest to this. One of my co-workers is married to a Dr. it's shameful, and it makes you wonder why they enter into the medical field..is it truly because they want to help others or is it all about the money?
I work in a large hospital and you can tell which doctors are passionate about their patients and which ones are in it for the money.....
The sad this is...certain companies target the nurses as well....I work in the neonatal intensive care unit , which is part of women's services, we have a flyer for Abbott company promoting human milk fortifier...the dinner is at Perry's Steakhouse and Grill...not a shabby place to eat...and it is all paid for by Abbot....so , you see , the practice continues....

·

Thank you for your comment! I am always interested to hear insights from people within the industry. I am not surprised by what you are saying but I am saddened. Human Milk Fortifier... That just sounds insane! What is that anyway? The only thing we can do is continue to discuss these issues to spread the truth! Upvoted and Followed! Cheers! =)

Human milk fortifier is an additive we use to increase the calories of breast milk. You see, breast milk has 20 Kcal's...most premature babies require more calories for growth and development, since they are premature babies. Even when offered a bottle feed(which we think nothing about) requires a lot of energy from the premature baby...if we do not increase the calories in their diet via TPN ( Total parenteral nutrition) IL ( intra-lipids) and milk fortifiers, the premature baby will lose weight and fail to develop properly. Of course, every "medication" has it's side effects...the TPN and IL are given intravenously...and that has all kinds of side effects so the doctors try to wean them off as quickly as possible and introduce breast milk ( with is the best for them) or donor breast milk if the mother is not producing any . Well, that's where the fortifier comes in...many times they are on a 24 Kcal's ...and slowly get weaned to 22...then eventually 20 before going home. In the past, we used to have to add MCT oil, beneprotein etc for increased protein and calories, but , again, they all had side effects. Even some human milk fortifiers are better than others....they have done evidence based study that show some brands are more acidic than others causing many neonatal GI disturbances/ problems....so there is always a company out there trying to show how their product is better than others....but my thing is, the data can be skewed to favor their product...and if it's not natural, then it will have some sort of side effect....I feel, if what they are selling truly is better that what is currently in the market, you should have to take people out to fancy dinners etc...the product should speak for itself.

My mom is an administrator in the medical community. She said that when it became illegal for pharma reps to give the office gifts in exchange for access to the doctors, they simply began to take the doctors and directors out to expensive lunches and spa treatments. Meanwhile, the office staff had to deal with patients waiting 2 hours for their appointments. This occurred a few times a month.

The medical/pharmaceutical industry is bought and paid for. This is just one example. Thanks for shining the light.

You are most welcome! If countries take back control of the issuance and distribution of money all of this will cease! =)

I am glad I no longer participate in that circus.

·

It only lasted a week but that was all I needed to see what was going on! =)

Thanks for this deeply personal share! Many of us have heard of these "training trips," and what actually goes on there, but this is the first personal accounting that I've seen. You never forget the moment when the disillusionment begins. That moment of awareness leads to another moment, and another, and another, until your eyes are too open to the corruption to shut. There's certainly a place for modern medicine, and pharmaceuticals; however, the pharma industry is billions of dollars strong and padded & protected by governments. With all of that in mind, it's dangerous for a person to put their full trust in it, or even our doctors sadly.

·

I agree completely! I have many more stories to tell from a life of wild adventure around the globe! If we keep discussing this we can make progress! Thank you for your comment! Followed and upvoted! =)

Yes, please write more.

I am rendered speechless by your candor; @aggroed can testify that this is an accomplishment.

Thanks for opening up like this, I'm not sure if it's because of the anonymity or because this environment encourages it, but it seems to happen quite a bit.

Perhaps the blockchain will finally allow for the human race to participate in a "community"?

Thank you very much @theblindsquirl ! Your compliment means a lot to me! I noticed you went to my article on having a healthier and happier smile from oil pulling.

You are very welcome.

The "Dentist who kept commenting on something he did not know is what some people refer to as a "Shill" for the medical industry. I say Industry because I believe that most doctors no longer understand, let alone believe in & follow the Hippocratic Oath.

Those are just empty words.

·
·
·

Yes it's very interesting... I have traced this back to the shift from homeopathic to allopathic medicine. Our education system is to brainwash! Thank you for your comment! Upvoted! =)

I worked around some well respected consultants that 'knew the drill', one in particular had been offered so many flights on Concorde he was bored with it. Being at the top of his particular discipline in cardiology, he would attend the said junkets where they would request him to present his subject to augment their products, he would always graciously decline.

I'm sure it will. I think we live in a time where people are starting to realise that they need to step up and not stand on the side lines anymore hoping someone else will solve the problems for them.

One day, everything will change..I once visited a hospital where the doctor was using google to try and diagnose a simple ailment. what happened to the lab? what happened to his years of study? It's people like Him that go to such "all expense paid trips with mistresses". Later they will kill a patient because of a google misdiagnosis and the hospital will cover it up. A friend of mine once told me, even if the cure to a disease like cancer is discovered,the pharmaceutical companies will kill such cure and declare it dead on arrival. Why? because they make billions from cancer treatment every year. Thank you for exposing such rot in the health sector.

·

You are absolutely correct @ehiboss. I see Doctors and Vets these days defining a symptom and then looking up the correct pharmaceutical to prescribe. Very little else is done! We can make a difference by continuing to discuss this topic. I fired all my Vets in Australia and taught myself how to heal most of my horses ailments naturally. I had a wonderful teacher! When the Vets returned they were not interested in learning what I had to show and I could see they were calculating just how much lost revenue my new knowledge was going to cost them. They are not all bad people. I understand their position. I have some other excellent topics to post about. I hope you will continue to follow and share your comments! Upvoted and followed! Cheers! =)

·

I guess old school doctors with all the medications/dosages in their head are getting scarce. And speaking of cancer, there are certain forms that do have discovered cures, but the pharmaceutical companies ditch them because of the cancer's rarity. It's not profitable to produce, so they let people die.

Excellent comment... the etymology is very telling! =)

Pharmaceutical industries do not care that you are in good health: keep your "clients" in a state of permanent medication dependency ("lifetime customers" is your best business); And to achieve this, they have a lot of money to control the National Medical Association so that they keep prescribing one or more drugs for each type of illness (rather than first focusing on their patients' nutrition and lifestyle); Big Pharma also controls politicians to issue laws in their favour, and also control the entire press so that no one dares to publish any negative information about "Big Pharma", with the threat of immediately cutting the huge advertising budget (which allows all publications to live). Fortunately, there is now the Internet that disseminates this information for all those who make the effort to find out. Pharmacists try to totally underestimate the use of vitamins and minerals (too cheap) to boost the immune system, preferring to sell patented (and much more expensive) drugs, regardless of the side effects of all these molecules (that interact among themselves). In pharmacies and stores of BIO products, you will only find vitamins and minerals with ridiculously so low dosage that they cannot have a significant effect on health. Fortunately, the Internet now allows access to more adequate dosages ... until some politicians paid by Pharmaceuticals will succeed in paralysing this parallel market...

@jockey This is tv show from Croatia where John Virapen explained how he bribed doctors. He used to work for big pharmaceutical companies.

·

Thank you very much I will watch it with interest. Here is another film worth watching. About 1/3 through you can see the Australian Government pulling funding from the community projects because they were having a positive impact on reducing sugar consumption... It breaks my heart1 =(

This is the world we live in - people just looking after themselves - even doctors. They have become a doctor so now in the eyes of the world they have become something greater than others, however, the future changes things - the professions of 'prestige' will be something of the past. Robotics and New Technology will take these jobs just like robots have taken over the auto industry. You will find robots completing medical operations and machine scanners diagnosing the medical condition you may have. Of course this will bring about new issues which will need to be resolved, one of which arguably, is the disconnection between DR and Patient (though in my experience Doctors have no real interpersonal skills, therefore a machine/ robot will be no different than a human DR.) Point is the future will bring changes, which, may not be believed or given much credence to at this present moment.

Yes I agree. Have you seen this film called Humans Need Not Apply? It discusses this subject. What an interesting comment it brings perspective on the manipulation on our perspectives while they are changing the rules of the game without us knowing. Upvoted! =)

Your story was truly eye-opening for me, thanks for sharing. I knew there was corruption, but I didn't realize the extent of it.
I also study natural medicine. I try to avoid my prescriptions, if it's possible to do so with natural alternatives. I haven't believed the doctor for some time now, but now even more so. You are truly lucky to have a doctor that you can completely trust. One day, I hope to have a doctor like that, or even to be a doctor like that.

·

Thank you very much for your comment! The corruption runs much deeper than this as many other commenters have said. This is a global phenomenon! I hope you will be interested in my posts about natural medicine! Followed and upvoted! =)

As a practitioner of natural medicine/herbalism, I've seen first hand the damage that pharmaceuticals and allopathic medicine can do. Fortunately I've also been able to help people avoid such things. It's said that in ancient China, the village doctor was only remunerated for his services is the people in his care stayed healthy. If they got sick, he didn't get paid! Sounds about right to me!
Thank you for this excellent post. Following and looking forward to your future posts.

·

Yes I have been studying herbalisim for the last few years too! I believe we need more herb lore and less herb law! I live on Bali and badly damaged my foot a few days ago. I thought it was broken but thankfully not. Here in my village the local healer was going to come and work on my foot. My village friends bought me healing balms to help with the swelling. I love the traditional medicine here in Asia. I will write some posts on this subject at some poin! Thank you for your comment! Upvoted and followed! =)

Thank you! I'm following you as well and I agree that, as far as herbal medicine goes, the Asian countries, such as China, have really held on to their traditions and have some truly excellent formulas. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

I knew pharma reps had a major impact on medical practitioners at the practice and hospital level, but I had no idea they were involved in the continuing education program (CEP). As lawyers we have the similar requirements, to retain our legal practicing certificate annually, we have to stay up to date with changes in the law and have to accrue a certain number of CEP points in order to comply. However, this compliance is monitored by the Law Societies in the various states and territories of Australia and is rigorously monitored and reviewed for content, quality, compliance with licencing requirements etc. Otherwise, why bother...just give the doctors a free pass on their CPE and save everyone the time and energy, and just donate the money to the relevant South East Asian economy directly!

What an excellent response! Thank you very much for taking the time to respond.

My mother has a Juris Doctorate from Melbourne University and I spent 5 years as a self litigant in the Victorian Supreme Court... I have some interesting perspectives on Law.

Do you know why your name is spelt completely in capital letters? If you are old enough look at your old passports and you will see it was not always spelt in capitals. It is a very interesting topic - and the answer to that question is very disturbing!

Will do! I must confess I swapped to another discipline for a year, just 1 year in, because I could see there was an awful lot of law and not much justice. But I decided I would be a hypocrite if I just sat back and complained about it, so I completed my studies so I could make changes from the inside.

Thank you for your very valid and interesting comment! I have so much to say about the legal system around the world! If you are poor you always loose!

Pooh! =(

In the 1990's I worked for a decor company that was hired by Big Pharma to decorate lavish parties for doctors they would lavish with all expense paid to trips and expensive perks in exotic locations all over the world.

We did a party in the Pope's private garden at the Vatican so doctors could come and hob nob is style.

I didn't realize what was going on then.

Now I do.

Our medical system is completely corrupt and KEEPS us sick for the benefit of Big Pharma and Co.

I'll be sharing a lot about this very soon.

Thanks for a great post, upvoted, resteemed and subscribed.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I heard about the vacation incentive doctors get for reaching quotas but did not know that they also got to skip the lectures. It is a conflict of interest...

This is happening in all the industries, Mansanto does it with pesticides and seeds, oil companies justify fracking, tobacco is not banned but marijuana is etc. etc.

Corporate greed has ruined the world.

·

And guess who is in the process of acquiring Monsanto that started earlier this year: Bayer.
Drugs and pesticides, what a nice combination!

·
·

I was waiting for someone to mention that name! LOL! =)

·

I agree about corporate greed, to an extent, but it is the state that allows this corporate greed to exist with impunity. Companies being mega rich is no problem, in and of itself. Companies being mega rich and the government saying "YOU MUST USE THEIR PRODUCT, OR ELSE! is a very big problem. Once violence/threat of violence enters the picture, legitimacy is gone. Viva free markets!

·
·

The entire problem is born in the fact that we the people don't control the creation and distribution of our monetary system! Change that and everything changes! Thank you for you comment! =)

·

Too right mate! We need herb lore not herb law! =)

It's amazing how it doesn't seem to matters weather it's education , medicine finance history the same patterns and organizations keep appearing and you come to realize that indeed there is a nefarious force that basically covers almost anything you can think off , to farming , medicine , to energy education and the list goes on !

Woodrow Wilson said it

r/conspiracy
A chilling quote from US president Woodrow Wilson
u/KingContextFeb 17, 2013
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. They know that America is not a place of which it can be said, as it used to be, that a man may choose his own calling and pursue it just as far as his abilities enable him to pursue it; because to-day, if he enters certain fields, there are organizations which will use means against him that will prevent his building up a business which they do not want to have built up; organizations that will see to it that the ground is cut from under him and the markets shut against him. For if he begins to sell to certain retail dealers, to any retail dealers, the monopoly will refuse to sell to those dealers, and those dealers, afraid, will not buy the new man's wares.”

Kennedy said it !

The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

It appears that with the internet society is been split between those are becoming seriously lost and brainwashed and those that can see the truth slapping them in the face !

·

Thank you for taking the time to construct such an appropriate reply. The truth at the heart of all of this is that the issuance and distribution of our money supply is privately owned. I will be writing posts on this but I know that once we take back the control of money to the people we will be free of all of this. That is why I love Blockchain, Crypto and Steemit! Go Steemit! Upvoted and followed mate! =)

·
·

It's great to see awareness can be found anywhere now and that knowledge has no boundaries! Your faith in the blockchain is nice ! I'm a little more cynical in that regard and see it as too good to be true type of thing ! Anyhow that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it and spread the good vibrations ! God bless !

·
·
·

Thank you very much for your comment! I believe my faith in the Blockchain is justified! Once we have an unalterable chain of information which cannot be manipulated we have all the opportunities to learn the truth which our Governments deny us! Liberation through decentralisation should be the cry! =)

·

I say blockchain technology is incredible ! But was also developed by the military as a secure form of internet !
Here's something I read and commented on in a previous post of mine ! Titled Mt Gox the biggest robbery in history ! Contain in the blog is a few revelations and theories !

Have a read !

According to congressional testimony tools exist to track cryptocurrencies and the location of the missing Mt Gox 1 billion dollar and then some is known , now ask yourself we've heard 'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely !' So wouldn't you suspect that the creators may have been a little tempted to grab a lil loose change and just sweep it under the rug ! I mean this is a bull in the China shop moment ! They just say we don't know ! It impossible to track ! But they've just revealed they have tools to track it ! As revealed in congressional hearing ,Members of the blockchain subcommittee who testified at the congressional hearing include Jerry Brito (Coin Center), Scott Dueweke (Identity and Payments Association), Kathryn Haun (Stanford Law School), Jonathan Levin (Chainalysis), and Luke Wilson (Elliptic). Both Chainalysis and Elliptic are blockchain monitoring companies that are well known for helping law enforcement with digital currency surveillance. So they were tempted , they nicked the cashed ( a dry run maybe for a future complete heiste of all exchanged kept funds!) they know where the missing funds are but they've show zero interest in exposing the culprits ! Cos they would expose the scam ! It's we'll know at the very top what going on ! It's what some religious text have being going on about for 6 thousand years ! The cashless society ! It's the mechanism for it ..,,,, isn't it ! Isn't it ! It's huge , it's staring us in the face ! I could be right , it's plausible ! I'm mean they're making us love it ! It's diabolical ! Well ...,,, you think about it ! And think about buy it now , perhaps you'll be called a terrorist someday , no buy or sell for you ! IMG_2095.JPG
So where am I going ! Well , some major red flags have appeared ! By all means get rich ...... but get Tangible ! Make a million , great buy bullion , land ! I don't know ! But don't be a sucker ! It could be the greatest thing since roast beef or it could just sweet sour pork !

I love it! Upvoted! I could not agree more! =) Well said! =)

Extremely interesting article.

I am really interested in why the medical field does not focus more on the "make your food your medicine" side of medicine. Even the information available to the public concerning what proper nutrition looks like is tainted by special interest. Now I am definitely not a conspiracy nut. Check out this NY Times article that reveals how the sugar industry manipulated research to shift the blame from sugar to fats. This information threw off other scientists' research too because they built their research of off flawed conclusions made by the sugar industry studies.

I have recently thought about how nutrition ties into corruption in the medical and insurance side of things. Here is the vicious circle, we are told by "scientists" who are supposed to be trusted authority figures that certain foods are okay. Then we go to the doctor when we feel sick and they lean heavily on giving us pills instead of recommending that we eat less garbage. Then the insurance companies take profits from insurance payments we make. It seems crazy!!!

I will admit that I haven't dived too deeply into the medical and insurance side of things but it seems extremely fishy and really sad to me. People are literally dying and going broke over this shit.

·

Seriously? They're blaming fat? Hmm let's see. Excess blood sugar is converted into triglycerides which are stored as body FAT. Scientists and doctors study this in Biochemistry 101 and they know the sugar/fat metabolism cycle very well. The lies of the sugar industry are so transparent. It's disgusting.

·

I could not agree more! I will read the article. Here is an excellent film about corruption in the sugar industry. Very worth watching. As we consider Hippocrates the father of Western medicine why don't we listen to his words. When I was younger we were taught the "food pyramid" at school - what a sick joke! My father is ill at the moment with diabetes and the advice from his Doctors in Australia is more drugs which are not helping. I believe this is an outright lie by the uneducated. =( Thank you for your comment!

·
·

I can't see the link to the movie!

Also, I have thought about that. The food pyramid is a disgusting symbol at how corrupt everything is.

·
·
·

Sorry here is the link to That Sugar Film

I agree - The Food Pyramid - what a sad joke! Cheers!

The corruption runs so deep, the moving parts that make up the machine believe they are the machine. Fortunately for humanity, people are waking up, and the medical system cannot move quick enough to cover the hypocrisy in which it exists. How did we ever as sovereign beings, get to the point where we accept chemical, controlled, manipulated substances as legal, and yet some very-well proven, natural plant-based medicines are outlawed as 'illegal'

·

What a beautiful comment! Thank you so much. Your words give me faith and confirm my belief in humanity! I have upvoted and followed you my brotha! Cheers! =)

Thank you for having the honesty to write this, and the courage to recognize the need to change course.

·

You are most welcome! I only care about truth and honesty! Upvoted! =)

Medical companies are known to give bribes, commissions and gifts to doctors for recommending their medicines. But on this scale, I didn't knew that.

·

The real truth is much worse my brotha! I have a few other excellent pots to release which I hope you will like. Thank you for you comment! Upvoted and followed! =)

thanks for your insight @jockey
this should go viral! I already have heard a long time ago about this schemes, but nothing like a "insider" to reveal the truth! thanks!
got a new supporter of your blog! resteemed content + upvoted!

·

Thank you for you comment! I appreciate it! If we continue to discuss this subject things will change! Maybe sooner than later! Followed and upvoted! =)

It just sounds like capitalism to me.

Feel free to replace doctors with any other professionals.

·

Agreed! If we take back the control of the issuance and distribution of our money supply all this will stop! I like your profile picture - very under cover! Cheers! =)

Really great stuff ! Could agree more !

·

Thank you very much! Nice name! =)

Thank you so much for speaking out on topics like this! More whistleblowers will make the difference in the long run. I know you probably have had bullets fired at you so to speak and your courage is admirable. Keep it up! I personally talk about getting back to nature so we can be our own doctors for those that are interested.

·

Would be good to see some whistleblowing on pharmaceuticals. So far we've been only witnessing political whistles.

·
·

Agreed mate! =)

·

No bullets for this aimed at my head! I was only a small cog but it was very telling! Thank you very much for your comment! =)

What an amazing post I enjoyed it so much

·

You are most welcome! Thank you!! =)

Not surprised as corruption knows no bounds. if it is not emanating on Wall street through finance, then Capital Hill from the political perspective. Incidentally, a good documentary on this exact subject : Selling Sickness

http://thoughtmaybe.com/selling-sickness/

Incidentally, I read once that the US pharma industry spends more on advertising then finding actual cures.

·

Thank you for the video i will definitely watch it as this is a subject I am very interested in. I agree with you there is corruption everywhere but it seems clear to me that it has all emanated from one place. The control of the issuance and distribution of our monetary system by private hands. Go crypto! Go Steem! =)

Well for me this story is more about the doctors, but not about pharm companies.

·

An interesting response thank you... For me they are working hand-in-hand... corruption wants friend! Cheers! =)

·
·

Agree. But unfotunately I think in my country the situation, that you discribed would be considered as kind of marketing and promotion.

·
·
·

Or corruption? I live at the moment in Indonesia and even here it would be considered corruption! ;-)

Thank you for shedding light on such a disgrace within the medical profession. I do my manditory continuing education as mandated by my college. I like keeping my licence. Perhaps I will continue on perhaps not at this point from what I have seen I am not so sure. I like helping people I like working with professionals that are willing to teach, I like learning. However in my estimation there are far more cover your ass protocols than real teaching.

·

It is very interesting to hear insight from someone within the system. Thank you for sharing.... You sound like a good person and I am sure you will make the right choices when you need to. I intend to teach Steemit to the youth in some of Indonesia's most under privileged areas as a way to alleviate poverty. Perhaps you want to come and teach at the same time! LOL! Good on ya! =)

Since almost everyone's purpose is to make profit, every profession will allow a level of corruption and the results come accordingly ... Great post

·

Thank you so much! It means a lot to me! =)

This is a very wonderful and enlightening post. It's quite unfortunate that money is of greater interest to many professionals other than work itself.
This trend has to change. People need to do jobs they love and be true to their works.

·

I agree! We can make changes if we keep the discussion alive! =)

I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for a decade, and this sort of thing was par for the course. Bribing doctors to prescribe certain drugs has supposedly been cracked down on since the landmark ruling against Pfizer, but I'm sure the practice still goes on under the guise of educational conferences or other such events.

·

Absolutely! Thank you for your very astute comment! =)

@jockey it is sad when people in the medical field or associated with it realize that it is not working to the benefit of society but to aid in the lining of the corporate pockets...i.e. most Dr.'s and big pharma. Great post and thank you for shining light on a dark corner (upvoted and resteemed)

·

Yes it is sad. What happened to their integrity? What happened to the Hippocratic Oath they swore? If a human being does not have integrity what do they have? I believe we can make positive impacts by continuing to discuss this topic on the Blockchain! Great name! Upvoted and followed! =)

·
·

@jockey your sentiment about where it went is spot on; however I think as we continue to explore the benefits of holistic medicine and getting back to basic medicine the issues between the medical profession and big Pharma will continue to be reduced at least that is my hope. Once again great post keep steeming.

·
·
·

Yes my brotha I agree with all you say! I almost feel we may have met many years ago... did you grow up in Germany by any chance? LOL! =)

·
·
·
·

Lol no born in the semi free nation of the US but it would appear kindred spirits tend to gravitate toward each other here on Steem

·
·
·
·
·

Brilliant! =)

hahahahah it's so gone it's not funny. I caught a Hospital filling a saline bag in a patient bathroom and hooking that to the patient! wowowo and you can just imagine the bill not to mention what was in that city water!! Total trashed system! totally broken!!

·

Wow that is incredible... what country was that in @justoneopinion? That's crazy but I can imagine it happening in Asia.

·
·

Actually, the patient was Asian also. And the nurse said don't worry its just water anyway. It was a hospital in New York. Won't say which one. But my friend's dad was the patient. I told her Tell the Doctor NOW! She did. I don't know the end result but can you imagine the billing on that IV product? And the risk of INFECTION? I didnt even think you could drink the tap water in New York.

·
·
·

It's pretty scary there dude. Keep Safe!

·
·
·
·

Where? Asia? I can take whatever life dishes at me! =)

·
·
·

OMG - Thank you for sharing this horrendous story... We both know sterilized saline is not tap water!!! WOW!

it's very scary.

·

Yes mate! =(

Given the beach will always be tempting, I think you may have to attack this at the pharmaceutical company level. Particularly, a few US and perhaps European pharmaceutical companies. The conflicts of interest, lobbying power, corrupt donations and other unethical things going on are both highly visible and outrageous, but they don't make headlines. You have to look for yourself.

·

Thank goodness for the Internet! Without it we would be lost! Great name - Followed!

Sadly, this does not surprise me.

·

I have seen things from a very different perspective since that experience!

The medical industrial complex is the term I like to use! Your post was recommended by @bnt as I vote with whale power tonight!

·

Thank you so much it is much appreciated! I agree medical industrial complex is a great term! I agree! Followed and Upvoted you both! Cheers! =)

Sad, but I am not surprised. I would love for you to put out some post on natural healing. I have been looking into it a bit since my Mom has kidney problems and horrible pain from a bad surgery on her back. This could help a lot of people!!

·

Thank you for your comments! I will be posting on natural healing. My father has kidney problems. I am most happy to discuss this with you in PM on steemit.chat to see if I can offer some advice! Love at you and your mom from sunny Bali! =)

Thanks for sharing your story. I know I've read about similar perks for doctors willing to sell certain drugs to their patients, but I've never heard any stories from someone "on the inside."

·

You are welcome but I was only on the "inside" for a week! However it was very clear what was happening. It is the same story everywhere. We need to control issuance and distribution of our money and all this will stop. Thank you for your comment! =)

Upvoted at 100% and resteemed. Thanks for this. I write/vlog a lot about vaccine injury and the corruption state/pharma/medical practitioner triad. Glad to follow you on here now!

·

Thank you very much! Followed and Upvoted! I am very interested in vaccines and have some posts to write myself - I will be following and resteeming you! Cheers! =)

Modern "medicine" is backwards. Thanks so much for sharing!

·

You are most welcome! =)

Great post...thank you. Imagine what the corruption is like as you move "UP " from your seat to Big Pharma working with congress and insurance companies working the healthcare plan....we are surrounded by corruption. When you see it first hand it provides a lesson and shatters many myths of what we think of our beloved country. I love our country...I don't like what we are doing to it.

·

Thank you for your comments! I believe that when the american people take back the issuance and distribution from the private Federal Reserve these problems will cease. Do you know about this? If not I will create a post on this! It is not just America that suffers from this. All but 2 countries in the world are now under this system. Whant to guess which ones are not controlled by this system? LOL! The bad ones: North Korea and Iran! We can fight this... go crypto and go Steemit! =)

·
·

thanks for the feedback...yes I know about the Fed and it's ways..and the countries that have been targeted that are not part of the Rothchild Fed control system. I agree...enough is enough. Remember, Iraq was moving away from the dollar and wanted to conduct business in other....look at Libya with their gold backed dinar and how that worked out and of course Syria. Dollare supremacy dictates military policy in a way.

·
·
·

We share the same perspective! I know all you are mentioning. I have followed and upvoted you with pleasure! If we keep talking about this dirty secret openly we will get somewhere and clean the laundry! =)

·
·
·
·

thank you my friend....I think the veil is lifting slowly. We see a darkness that wants to control this world for their benefit. It's just not right. The Fed Reserve and the banks are part of this group that will not easily give power back....interesting times for sure. people call this stuff a conspiracy.....I think we have seen this is the case. Many conspiracy's are now facts.
