I’ve been called a kook… a crank… a quack… and a conspiracy theorist.
And those are just the ones I can print!
It’s all because I have the NERVE to question mainstream “science”… and point out the HUGE and UGLY conflicts of interest that motivate researchers to chase moneyinstead of truth.
And if that sounds like a conspiracy theory to you, then I’ve got some breaking news for you today.
IT’S TRUE – ALL OF IT!
A top university just paid top dollar to the federal government to settle allegations that one of their scientists FAKED research to win government grants.
And if you think this is limited to one nutjob at one government-supported institution… then I’ve got a bridge to sell you.
The ugly TRUTH about medical research
A Duke University researcher is accused of fabricating data to win grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.
And Duke has had to pay out $112.5 million to the feds in restitution.
This researcher… who we know now literally MADE STUFF UP… co-authored 38 studies.
So far, 17 of those studies have been retracted… and you gotta believe the rest will get dumped, too.
This goes far beyond 38 studies….
Duke was cited in at least 417 OTHER studies by OTHER researchers!
Every single one of those reference citations must also be thrown in the trash.
This is just the tip of a VERY dirty iceberg – because it works the other way around, too.
And that one’s a WHOLE LOT WORSE!
Instead of faking data to win government money, you can bet researchers get Big Pharma cash first, then provide the cooked data later.
Here’s how it works…
Let’s say you’re a researcher at a big university, and I’m a drug company rep.
“Hey,” I’ll say, because I’m informal and I want us to be friends. “We need some help investigating this new drug we own… one we have some very high hopes for.”
The drug companies pay BIG for these projects, and those payments keep the university happy and help to fund your position.
OF COURSE you say yes! Everyone says yes.
Now, nothing is promised outright.
But if you get paid handsomely to “evaluate” my “promising” drug… you certainly may TRY to come up with the answer I’m looking for.
Assuming you want the gravy train to keep rolling.
That’s why all of the new “miracle drugs” out there often aren’t the miracle you’ve been promised.
When it comes to chronic conditions – diabetes, heart disease and more – almost ALL of the meds they push end up revealing toxic side effects with long-term use.
Researchers were all too happy to “hide”those during testing and development…
Many even design their studies specifically so they DON’T uncover those risks, even accidentally… no book-cooking necessary.
You’re often far better off with tried-and-true natural therapies.
They’ve been proven for ages – and are NOT the product of a conflict-riddled system.
This isn’t a conspiracy theory anymore. It’s a fact – just ask Duke.
