Medical Dark Ages
*Quotes from Dr. Dean Burk, co-founder of the National
Institute:* "The more people making a living off cancer, the more impossible it
is to get rid of it." "If enough money can be made on it, they can design
research to prove that daylight doesn't exist." "Only lies, superstition,
prejudice and ignorance have prevented a cure for cancer." *Google Burk's name
and title and get the facts of what one great American has done for the world.*
* The following are a few quotes from _"Medical Dark
Ages," _Which in my opinion are perfect examples of why the "water cure has been
rejected by orthodox medicine out of ignorance or deliberate intent to protect
profits. */Bob Butts///"The thing that bugs me is that people think the FDA is
protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public
/thinks/it's doing are as different as night and day." - *Dr. Herbert Ley,
Commissioner of the FDA*, San Francisco Chronicle, 1/2/70.
"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance. That principle is condemnation without investigation." - *Herbert Spencer*.

"It should be forbidden and severely punished to remove cancer by cutting, burning, and other fiendish tortures. It is from nature that the disease comes, and from nature comes the cure, not from physicians." - *Paracelsus, (1493-1541 AD)*.
"Nearly all men die of their medicines, not of their diseases." -*Moliere, (1622-1672)*.

"To protect herbalists from persecution by the Company of Physicians and Chirurgeons. Company of Surgeons in London, minding their own gain, and doing nothing for the profit or ease of the diseased, have sued, troubled and vexed honest persons (herbalist) ...

Appendix 2, chapter 2. p.2*.
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship...To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic..., and have no place in a republic...The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for medical freedom as well as religious freedom." - *Dr. Benjamin Rush <http://ahealedplanet.net/medicine.htm#rush>, signer of Declaration of Independence; member, Continental Congress; B.S. Princeton U*. "...This large and expensive stock of drugs will be unnecessary. By...doses of...medicines...multiplying...combining them properly, 20 to 30 articles, aided by the common resources of the lancet, a garden, a kitchen, fresh air, cool water, exercise, will be sufficient to cure all the diseases that are at present under the power of medicine." -*Dr. Benjamin Rush <http://ahealedplanet.net/medicine.htm#rush>*.
"Samuel Thomson (1769-1843, herbalist) so upset New Hampshire doctors that they persuaded the state legislature to pass a law specifically naming him, not for practicing medicine 'illegally' ('the usual charge with which to charge non-allopathic practitioners') but to prevent him (from) healing people without charging them." - *Donald Law, _A Guide to Alternative Medicine _*
"The efforts of the medical profession in the US to control:...its...job it proposes to monopolize. It has been carrying on a vigorous campaign all over the country against new methods and schools of healing because it wants the business...I have watched this medical profession for a long time and it bears watching." - *Clarence Darrow, (1857-1938)*.

"But the doctors in the past, as the review of the evidence showed, branded Jenner, Semmelweis, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Pasteur, Lister, Koch and Keen as charlatans....this question (on a novel cancer cure) is too important to leave purely to doctors..."
"It's a terrible thing that we cannot really trust the FDA or NCI (National Cancer Institute). We need, therefore, an independent scientific investigation." - *US Senator Paul Douglas, _Congressional Record_, 1963*.

"Everybody should know that the 'war on cancer' is largely a fraud, and that the NCI and the ACS are derelict in their duties to the American people who support them." - *Linus Pauling 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for"his research into the nature of the chemical bond and its application to the elucidation of the structure of complex substances.", and 1962 Nobel Peace Prize*. "..The truly fraudulent claims must be discarded. But novel methods of therapy should not be rejected because they are novel, or because they run counter to some generally accepted belief ("which may just be biased"), or because we do not understand the mechanism of the proposed treatment, or because it has come from an unconventional source." - *Linus Pauling *
"...Terminally ill cancer patients,...100...who took 10 grams of Vitamin C daily lived four times longer (from date of diagnosis as 'untreatable', than controls)...Dr. (Linus) Pauling submitted these findings in a scientific paper to Journal of the AMA, and New England Journal of Medicine, and both have refused to publish this illustrious Nobel Laureate's work." - *D. Ian Thierman, Yale U. Grad., (in International Association of Cancer Victims and Friends, Jan. 1979)*.
"Anyone may logically wonder why this information has not been put into proper investigative format and presented toward various medical bodies. The answer is simple.

There is ample evidence to document this beyond question." - *US Congressman Larry McDonald, MD *

"Even though the nutrition research budget has increased 21 fold in the last four years, it still remains less than 1% of total NCI budget, even though one half of all cancers are diet related...Does the peer review simply turn into a 'buddy' system for awarding grants? - *Senator Bob Dole., 1978 Subcommittee hearings on Nutrition*.
"Eminent nutritionists have traded their independence for the food industry's favors." - *US Congressman Benjamin Rosenthal *
(Why is there frequent criticism that the cancer research system is unreceptive to unorthodoxy?) "Because its true. Not cancer research, all research systems.

"Don't drink fluoridated water...Fluoride is a corrosive poison which will produce harm on a long term basis." -* AMA President, Dr. Charles Heyd*.
"I sometimes wonder if (a major aluminum company) might not have a deep interest in getting rid of the waste products from the manufacture of aluminum, because these products contain a large amount of fluoride. In this connection it is interesting to know that (a bureaucrat), who now heads up the Federal Security Administration (precursor to the US Public Health Service), and the firm of attorneys he was with...represents (that aluminum company)." - *US Congressman, Dr. A.L. Miller, Chairman, Special Committee on Chemicals in Foods, "Fluoridation of Water, Extension of Remarks., _Congressional Record_, 1952*.
(As of 1983)"Belgium, West Germany, and Sweden have abandoned their pilot fluoridation experiments on human populations, and are not fluoridating any public water supplies. Sweden, Denmark, and Holland have banned it completely. Many other countries, such as France, Italy, and Norway have never fluoridated their drinking water. Only about 2% of the population of Europe is living in a fluoridated area;" - *John Yiamouyiannis <http://ahealedplanet.net/fluoride.htm#compulsory>, PhD, bio-chemistry, BS, U of Chicago; President, Safe Water Foundation, _Fluoride: The Aging Factor_*.

Dr. Yiamouyiannis was ultimately forced to resign." - *John Yiamouyiannis, PhD, editor, Chemical Abstracts Service, American Chemical Society, _Fluoride: The Aging Factor_.* at fluoridation of the public water supplies is both a safe and effective means of promoting public health.
"..(Fluoridation) is unconstitutional....(and)..an unreasonable exercise of police power..." - *Judge Ronald Niemann, Circuit Court, Ill. Decree, Illinois Pure Water and Ruby Hale vs. Director of Public Health and Director of EPA, State of Illinois., _Health Action_, Feb, 1982*.
