Prelude: The Unholy Business of Health Care
Could it be that the most respected of industries is actually the most corrupt of all? Decades ago, the medical establishment went to war to silence a purported quackery of holistic medicine and chiropractors. The purported perversion of medicine which the establishment fought so viciously to quell was the contention that vitamin C is beneficial. It has become a conveniently forgotten history, but more importantly, a rewritten history. The new history is that the allopathic establishment discovered the benefits of vitamin C, and it totally never tried to destroy alternative researchers who were reporting its benefits. It is still spoken of as little as possible.
While some practicing doctors may be honorable people who seek to help others, their schools, organizations, and governmental agencies are all controlled by pharmaceutical companies which have less noble intentions.

How many decades has it been since any honest effort was made at developing a cure for any disease? Was it polio? How long ago was that?
Alternative medicine continues to eliminate supposedly incurable illnesses on a regular basis. Where would the extremely influential pharmaceutical industry be if their biggest profit illness, namely cancer, were curable quickly, cheaply, and easily? They would use their influence in government and with media corporations to make certain that alternative medicine was either discredited, or simply given no mention.
It is exactly what has happened. In the United States, nothing can be cited or advertised as being medically useful by any company that is lacking official approval. This is regardless of how safe, effective, or natural its The One-Minute Cure: T... Best Price: $9.01 Buy New $11.85 (as of 08:35 EST - Details) products may be. In practice, this approval may only be obtained from the pharmaceutical cartel that the Food and Drug Administration closely partners with. Since safe, effective, and natural cures cannot be patented by these groups for their maximum capitalization, the natural and significantly cheaper remedies are never given approval. Without approval, cures can neither be marketed nor labeled for what they really do. Producers may be imprisoned for making “unapproved medical claims” if they honestly describe what they sell, and it has happened plenty of times. It is how Big Medicine has traditionally destroyed competing alternatives, but the Internet is beginning to change the rules.
Silence The Cherry Growers! Send U.S. Marshals!
In 2005, certain cherry farmers boasted of cherry’s health benefits on their websites, and this required the swift intervention of the Food and Drug Administration. The uninitiated farmers were not aware of the great threat that nutrition is to the lucrative disease management industry, until 29 of them received threatening letters from the F.D.A. Their unforgivable offense was posting the results of scientific studies to the Internet that concerned how cherries naturally eliminate many types of inflammation better and faster than all known drugs, with the possible exception of certain potent steroid compounds. It was found that cherry concentrate in supplement form is more effective in neutralizing arthritis pain than the most expensive medications, with absolutely no risks or side effects. A month’s supply of such pain-relieving cherry supplements costs about $12.00, which is a discomforting fact for a U.S. arthritis industry that makes over 11 billion dollars per year in maintaining patients’ risky drug addictions. An uninsured patient must pay between $1,000 and $3,000 per month for these drugs, without counting the doctor fees. The cherry farmers had to be silenced. The farmers were told that if they continued citing the scientific findings, then the F.D.A. would reclassify cherries as an unapproved drug, and ban their sale in the United States. The F.D.A. actually stated that the use of cherries has never been proven “safe and effective”. What follows is a copy of the F.D.A. threat letter.
