Naked Empress or The Great Medical Fraud

by Hans Ruesch

Following up his sensational SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENT, this new exposé of Hans Ruesch shows how with the help of press agentry and the venality of most of the mass media the public has been brainwashed into equating MEDICAL CARE with HEALTH, whereas in fact exactly the opposite applies: modern medicine has become the principal cause of disease today.

So in one year 1.5 million Americans had to be hospitalised as a consequence of the intake of drugs that were supposed to "cure" them of one thing or other. Another case in point is cancer. The ably exploited fear of this dread disease, caused for the most part by products issuing from chemical, industrial and pharmaceutical laboratories, has become a solid gold source for researchers, drug manufacturers and doctors, who keep foisting their deleterious cut-burn-poison therapies on the frightened patients, most of whom die from the treatment before the cancer can kill them.

Since the cause of most cancers is well-known, they could be avoided through prevention, which early education should provide. And yet, practically no public funds go into prevention because there is no money to be gained with it - only health. The big money is all in the pseudo "Research," done on millions of animals, which can only give fallacious answers, and in the treatment of the patients with violent, destructive, but immensely lucrative therapies imposed by official medicine.

Certified reports of cancers completely cured by "soft", drugless treatments, usually based on natural diets, mostly various raw foods, have been piling up both in Europe and the USA. But all the competent and honest doctors who threaten the profits of the lucrative medical trade with inexpensive therapies are being viciously attacked, vilified as "quacks and charlatans," sometimes even barred from the profession, by the quacks and charlatans who make up the profit-oriented Medical Power.

Animal experimentation, inevitably misleading, is of course the alibi that has been devised by this organisation for extorting huge grants for a phoney Research, and to safeguard the drug manufacturers from criminal prosecution whenever the deleterious effects of one more of their noxious products can no longer be concealed. Then they can always say "all the prescribed tests" (on animals) had been conscientiously undertaken. But not saying that they themselves, in collusion with the Health agencies and corrupt or misled politicos, have imposed those tests.

Not more chemicals, but fewer chemicals, not an increase of drugs, but a drastic reduction of drugs, and not a multiplication of animal experiments, but a total abolition of all such "alibi" experiments, are the inescapable premise for a betterment of living conditions and an improvement of public health. The present book brings ample proof of this, besides unearthing some information that many powerful individuals in America and abroad would prefer to keep buried forever.

World Without Cancer and The Politics of Cancer Therapy

by G. Edward Griffin

WORLD WITHOUT CANCER (first published 1974, latest edition 1996) is a book about the story of Laetrile, commonly called vitamin B17. Separated in two parts, WORLD WITHOUT CANCER firstly explores the remarkable success of Laetrile in treating cancer victims; and more importantly, the second part describes the politics of cancer therapy in which Griffin blows the lid off an all-powerful international chemical and drug cartel that has dominated the direction of health care since early this century. Not only has the Rockefeller-Farben combine been instrumental in fostering chemical-based drug treatment as the basis for health care, they have been the dominant adversary against safer non-drug treatments.

Griffin's interest in the subject was aroused back in 1971 when his friend Dr John Richardson presented him with his findings on a control for cancer. The physician had stumbled across a revolutionary concept of cancer and a means of treating cancer. Using a safe natural substance called Laetrile, Dr Richardson had been able to successfully treat terminal cancer patients. However, the physician's "unorthodox" approach was fiercely opposed by other members of the medical profession including the American Medical Association, the American Cancer Society, and doctors on the staff of the hospital where he practiced. He was labelled a "quack" and was pressured to abandon his fruitful research and therapy. Upon questioning the motives behind the medical profession's opposition to an effective control for cancer, Griffin had started what turned out to be a 3-year research project which was to lead him to the uncovering of one of the most amazing stories of the Twentieth Century. His research covers world history, World War II, cartels, industry, the Nazis, foundations, and the information is taken primarily from government hearings. Hearings that took place between the years 1928 and 1946. A very important time in world history that saw the conglomeration of the world's chemical and drug giants.

Griffin's investigation revealed that "In the years prior to World War II, there came into existence an international cartel, centered in Germany, that dominated the entire world's chemical and drug industries. It had spread its operations to ninety-three countries and was a powerful economic and political force in all countries. It was known as I.G. Farben." When John D. Rockefeller interlocked his American-based, international empire with that of I.G. Farben in 1928 "there was created the largest and most powerful cartel the world has ever known. Not only has that cartel survived through the years, it has grown and prospered. Today it plays a major role in both the science and politics of cancer therapy."

In order to expand their drug operations the Rockefellers set about "educating" the medical profession. "Abraham Flexner, author of the famous Flexner Report of 1910, led the crusade for upgrading the medical schools of America. All the while he was in the employ of Andrew Carnegie [a Rockefeller stooge] and John D. Rockefeller who had set up gigantic tax-exempt foundations for that purpose. The end result was that all medical schools became heavily oriented toward drugs and drug research, for it was through the increased sale of drugs that the donors realized a profit on their donations."

The medical profession and universities weren't the Rockefeller's only target for infiltration. "A brief backward glance at the total landscape will help us to appreciate more fully the present extent of cartel influence, not only in the FDA [United States' Food and Drug Administration], but at all levels of the federal government, for it is an historical fact that the centers of political power long have been the easy target of cartel penetration and control.... The list of men who are or were in key positions within the Rockefeller group reads like a 'Who's Who in Government'."

Griffin is well known because of his unique talent for researching obscure and difficult topics and presenting them in clear, concise terms that all can understand. He is the author of numerous documentary books and films under diversified and controversial topics including the United Nations, the Supreme Court, US foreign policy, The John Birch Society, the Communist Party, and international banking. The information revealed WORLD WITHOUT CANCER adds to this impressive list of topics - his painstaking research and thorough analysis of the international chemical and drug cartel and their powerful allies is in our opinion one of the most authoritative and well-written treatise on this least understood subject.

THE POLITICS OF CANCER THERAPY is an audio tape recording of a one-hour lecture by Griffin on the above subject. Based on the second part of WORLD WITHOUT CANCER, THE POLITICS OF CANCER THERAPY is a very good audio complement to his book, as it covers this very complex and interesting subject in an easy-to-understand manner.

Animal Experimentation: The Hidden Cause of Environmental Pollution

by Hoorik Davoudian

Writing for the United States anti-vivisection organisation called SUPRESS the author makes a direct and comprehensive connection between animal research, chemical testing and production, and environmental pollution. Ms Davoudian who is a Hazardous Materials Manager for a government agency in California, exposes the scientific fraudulence of animal research and shows how it is routinely used and manipulated to make toxicants appear "safe" for human consumption. This concise 10-page booklet further shows how the inherently erroneous nature of vivisection renders environmental laws and regulations ineffective in controlling environmental pollution.

Ms Davoudian came to the conclusion that vivisection is a scientific fraud when the very professors and researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (where the author received her Science degree) admitted that "they were faced with great difficulties in extrapolating the results of their animal tests to human beings". After researching the issue, she determined that rather than a "difficult" task, these "scientists" were faced with a total impossibility.

In explaining the REAL motives behind industry and government's insistence on using unscientific animal testing, Ms Davoudian reveals: "The non-conclusive, erroneous nature of animal testing creates a smoke screen - an alibi which permits the continued manufacture of all kinds of toxic and hazardous chemicals. Vivisection conveys a false illusion of safety, but all it ensures is a continued demand for ever 'newer' and 'improved' products. The tragic result is that these seemingly 'safety tested' poisons are the very ones which pollute our air, water, food, and planet."

On further explaining the role of vivisection, the author says: "From these 'studies', staggering amounts of ambiguous, contradictory, and invalid data are compiled. It is from these data that the 'scientist' draw their 'scientific' conclusions. And, of course, animal experimentation suits their purposes perfectly, because its non-conclusive and contradictory nature allows both the scientists and the chemical manufacturers to arrive at any kind of conclusion they desire.

"For example, if they want to 'prove' that a particular chemical is not carcinogen, all they have to do is present the evidence from those animal tests that support this view. On the other hand, if they wish to prove that the same chemical is a carcinogen, then, with just as much conviction, they can present other laboratory tests that show the product to be carcinogenic."

In addition to this, Ms Davoudian explains that the fraud of vivisection reaches beyond the process of chemical production and marketing and applies to the entire field of "environmental protection." Giving an example she says that "if a hazardous waste incinerator is to be built, the Environmental Impact Report (incorporating findings of animal studies), conducted by those in favor of the incinerator, will prove the 'harmlessness' of its air emissions with little difficulty. Yet a different Environmental Impact Report, conducted by the opposition, will prove the risks associated with the same incinerator to be unacceptable."

The booklet is timely considering that recently the United States Institute of Environmental Health Services after reviewing their tests on laboratory animals has concluded that the Government should no longer rely on these tests because chemicals frequently have wholly different effects on animals and humans. Consequently the US environmental regulation has been thrown into question.

Science On Trial

by Dr Robert Sharpe

The subtitle of this latest book by Robert Sharpe is The Human Cost of Animal Experiments, and that cost is great indeed. Drawing on extensive research, Sharpe, formerly a Senior Research Chemist at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School in London, presents a powerful body of evidence and argument to demonstrate that, far from being scientific, animal research is methodologically flawed, and has retarded advances in human health.

The advocates of animal experimentation have mounted a sophisticated public relations campaign to justify the use of non-human animals as surrogates for human studies in a "controlled" environment, a claim rebutted by Sharpe. He reveals that the choice of animals is usually governed by factors such as cost, ease of management, and reproductive rates. Hence mice and rats, who scarcely resemble humans are the most popular choice.

The book offers a wide range of empirical examples of the misleading results, false positives and missed opportunities arising from research based on a "logical fallacy". Millions of animals have been sacrificed for no apparent purpose, while research applicable to human beings has been ignored, often for decades. Animal studies attract a disproportionately large percentage of research funds compared with research of direct relevance to humans.

For instance, forty years ago a famous study of the smoking habits of British doctors revealed that the chances of lung cancer increased with the number of cigarettes smoked. These findings were ignored in favour of animal studies in which, after fifty years of trying, scientists were unable to induce experimental cancers in animals by forced inhalation, feeding, or injection into the lungs.

Benzene, arsenic and alcohol were correlated with human cancers long before animal studies were begun. In fact, in the case of arsenic, its suspected carcinogenicity was noted as far back as 1809. Workers in the metallurgical and other industries using arsenic were contracting cancer, but not until the 1980s were scientists able to induce cancer in experimental animals. [Which of course is a form of cancer dissimilar to the human cancer.] This was 180 years after arsenic was first suggested as a human carcinogen.

Sharpe concludes that it would be nice to think that science could put its own house in order, "but in reality it will be an informed and determined public who finally provide the incentives for change. For all our sakes - Let's Liberate Science!"
