I would like to comment on certain
statements in the recent (May) Townsend Letter.
Firstly, congratulations to Dr. Alan
Gaby for his non back down, forthright and right on letter more on Multi
Level Yam Scam. My opinion is that no ethical doctor can be involved
in any multi-level schemes. Although no doubt many of them have excellent
products, they are always over-priced. Seldom ever is the incentive
to be involved anything except for the so-called financial opportunity.
Money and greed rears it's ugly head again!
Next, the article by H.J. Roberts,
MD. Being certified and recertified by the American Board of Internal
Medicine, is certainly not something to be proud of. Far from it. It
is a certification from a group that actively promotes and generally
knows nothing except quack medicine. Secondly, the statement: This preamble
is intended to indicate that I have been around medicine long enough
to realize that most purported cures for cancer have been discredited,
particularly when suggested by non-physicians who lack credentials.
Discredited by whom? The people who make millions every year peddling
their own quack non-cures. Most of their victims (thousands and thousands
every year) are buried. Harry Hoxsey was not a doctor of any kind, yet
he knew more about curing cancer than all the oncologist quacks at Sloan
Kettering put together. Dr. Roberts further states: I felt it necessary
to maintain an open mind over a topic that would evoke insulting belly
laughs from most oncologists. I don't suppose that Dr. Roberts imagines
that oncologists are legitimate ethical doctors? (First do no harm?)
Doesn't he want to realize that they are one of the worst kind of medical
quacks there are? Every year they are directly responsible for killing
many thousands of citizens.
Knowledge has nothing to do with
qualifications or legitimate credentials. One of the most prolific contributors
to this journal over the years is Wayne Martin. He is not a doctor but
he is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. Research scientists and medical
doctors have PhDs and MDs. This doesn't automatically mean they know
either what they are doing, or for that matter, more than anyone else.
Quite the contrary, oncologists being typical examples. Its amazing
to me that supposedly intelligent people, like oncologists, don't even
realize that they are part of the biggest and most disgusting scam that
has ever been perpetrated against mankind. Most everyone knows that
the Nazis killed about six million innocent people (mostly Jewish) in
W.W.II. How many millions over the years have died agonizing deaths
at the hands of oncologists? I'm sorry, but the truth is the truth.
Lets call a spade a spade. I realize that Dr. Roberts is probably a
well-meaning individual, but obviously he has no idea that medicine
is merely a puppet of the drug pharmaceutical conglomerates. These groups
don't care about what's right or honest or best for mankind. All they
care about is profits and maintaining the status quo. In the editorial
The FDA's Holy War Against Dr. Burzynski, Dr. Whitaker, obviously being
a man of compassion and concern, asks What has happened to our civilization?
What's happened to our civilization
is that it is run and controlled by special interest groups and big
business who only care about profits. Period. Greed, greed and more
greed!! Bill Buchanan's letter to the President, is well meaning but
totally naive. President Clinton has nothing to do with it! He couldn't
do anything about it even if he wanted to! Lets not forget that Jack
Dreyfus, who had direct access to presidents, spent 60 million dollars
of his own money trying to get some simple changes made in the PDR about
the usage of Dilantin. He too wasted his time and money. Nothing changed.
The Olestra flap raises some interesting points for
me. This man-made garbage is no different than many other concoctions
going into products for human consumption. Calling them food is quite
a stretch. Junk or garbage would be more fitting. Now, who eats this
stuff anyway? Mr. and Mrs. Ignorant America. It will be of no concern
to people who eat a natural diet. So what's all the fuss? Now look,
America is sort of the land of the free,í (except of course if anyone
is ruining business for the sickness disease industries. I mean didn't
you know that's a growth industry too and they rely on more and more
sick people every year.) People have the basic freedom to eat whatever
they want. It's their choice. Of course it's not an informed choice,
but nevertheless it's their right! I think that everyone of us who knows
the truth has a moral obligation to lecture, write and in every way
try to educate people about what they should be eating to maintain health.
I also realize that many people don't want to know the truth or be educated
and that's their right too. Stupid, but none the less their right. Is
ignorance really bliss?
As a reader of the Townsend Letter
from day one, it is obvious to me that this journal is being read by
more and more uninformed people. That's good from the point of view
that they will be hopefully educated on at least two basic facts. Firstly,
to be healthy, only eat foods from nature. Organic if possible. Vegetables,
fruits, grains and nuts, all unprocessed and unrefined and high quality
protein like eggs, chicken, fish and red meat. (Being a healthy vegetarian
is OK, too, maybe?) Secondly, if at all possible keep away from regular
allopathic doctors. Since they have no idea of the cause(s) of degenerative
disease, they therefore cannot treat it, but instead use dangerous drugs
attempting to ameliorate the symptoms. That's science? These people
are dangerous to your health. Oh, yes, I know that antibiotics and other
crisis medications are sometimes necessary and if I'm racked up in an
accident or have a ruptured appendix I want a capable surgeon. I'm also
aware that there are some very useful pharmaceuticals.
Lastly, I note that Townsend Hopkins,
who lists many degrees, and I might point out that British Commonwealth
DOs are limited to manipulation and are not at all like US osteopathic
physicians, states that only homeopathy, with diet, is able to effect
broad curative changes in personality, degenerative and active diseases
and more, all without harm. Look, I'm really happy that his system works
for him, but there is no one way or one path. There are many paths and
many ways. If Dr. Hopkins is a student of the genius L. Ron Hubbard
then I can tell him that Dianetic auditing with an E meter is not the
only way to erase engrams. Other ways include Reich and Lowen's Bioenergetics,
rebirthing or conscious breathing and regressive hypnosis. One of the
biggest barriers to learning is the close-minded human condition that
I call group dynamics. All groups tend to teach. We have all the answers.
Do not look outside of our teachings. It is like religion. Everyone
argues that their way is the only way. Not true. Sorry. Since we've
been talking about cancer, look at some of the different ways cancer
has been cured. Hoxsey and Caisse/Essiac (both non-physicians who lacked
credentials) cured thousands and thousands of many types of terminal
cases of cancer with their own independent and different type of herbal
treatment. Dr. Max Gerson, a highly qualified German physician, likewise
cured thousands of terminal cases. His system was very different. Royal
Raymond Rife who had no credentials also cured terminal cases with his
frequency instrument. Gaston Naessens injects 714X into the Lymph system
and also cures many terminal cases. Dr. Burzynski, a highly qualified
Ph.D. and MD uses his antineoplastons very successfully on many terminal
cases. You see. There is no one way!
I might add, that what Dr. Burzynski
is going through now in the state of Texas is no different than what
Harry Hoxsey went through in the same state more than 40 years ago.
All of the others mentioned above went through similar ordeals, all
for the crime of curing cancer. Isn't it ironic but sick that the very
people prosecuting, represent a group that has no cure but because of
money and greed must maintain the status quo.
I'll bet that many of these people
are God fearing citizens who go to church/temple/synagogue every week.
It really tells us something about the human condition doesn't it?
