The Origin of Today’s Medical Doctor and Big Pharma
T the year is 1847. Physicians in America are not enjoying competing with inexpensive, natural remedies, which are offered by Indians and skilled midwives. These are remedies which are very effective but are not profitable, nor patentable, so the physicians get together to form an alliance called the AMA, the American Medical Association. Only “regulars” were allowed to join this new, prestigious organisation, which strictly excluded herbalists, homeopaths and Indian doctors.
The new bylaws enacted would ensure that any physician caught dealing with a “non-regular” would be cast out and his reputation ruined. There was only one problem, and it was a huge problem. Conventional medicine in America was based on philosophy, not science, because nothing had been tested. We know this as a cold hard fact today. The kind of medicine regarded as conventional then consisted of blood letting, mercury poisoning, and other methodology we laugh at today.
Word started getting out. Doctors from Europe who visited and then returned home told others of the ill health of the average American, whose skin was sallow, eyes sunken, and teeth and jaws crooked. Lo and behold, these are all symptoms of mercury poisoning. And so there you have it. United States healthcare started with mercury poisoning! That’s why it’s still in vaccines and flu shots, because they can get away with it.
The year the AMA hired thugs
In 1905, Collier’s magazine published an expose on the “patentable remedy industry,” in a series of articles called The Great American Fraud. But by then, it was too late to stop the tsunami of criminal conspiracy that was crashing in on natural medicine. The AMA had created the Department of Investigation (DOI) to hunt down doctors still using natural remedies. The department’s sole job was to shut down ANY HEALERS who could threaten AMA profits.
The AMA’s thug department “DOI” actually kept files on anyone who was cured of cancer. They also kept files on health foods, vitamins, acupuncture, faith healing, and Scientology. The head of the AMA, one Morris Fishbein, was a criminal and an extortionist, and if you did not pay him large sums of money for the AMA “Seal of Acceptance,” you simply could not survive in the medical field. Fishbein was the ultimate scam artist. The AMA never even had any facilities to test any of the drugs on which they put their “Seal of Acceptance” anyway, so it was all a huge scam.
Burying natural remedies is big business
Cancer attacks every other man and every third woman in the United States. There is a 50 percent survival rate. You need a plan. Who are you going to trust if you get cancer? Would you trust the huge pharmaceutical companies that run Western medicine and the Nazi scientists who invented chemotherapy, or would you trust cancer patients who were at stage four and five, on their death beds, and were healed by the herbal “Hoxsey Treatments,” who swore in a United States court that it worked, and the chemotherapy did not? (http://www.mnwelldir.org/docs/history/quackery.htm)
Would you trust the AMA, the FDA and the NCI (National Cancer Institute), organizations whose administrators and heads bounce back and forth, from Big Pharma CEO jobs to running the government rackets that regulate food and medicine safety?
The infamous AMA “Seal of Approval” is exactly the same situation as we have today with the FDA, where approval of pharmaceutical drugs requires millions of dollars up front, but no real testing is done, and the heads of the FDA are former presidents and vice presidents of pharmaceutical and chemical companies that engineer and market these same untested, dangerous synthetic drugs. Then when the FDA gets caught, they simply give the victim’s family a couple million (from their billions) to shut up.
For those inclined to place trust in the AMA, just take a look at the association’s history. Even today, the AMA continues to make decisions obviously designed to protect organized medicine, not patients. So what’s the moral of the whole story? Since before World War II, Americans have been falsely reaffirmed by the FDA, AMA, and NCI that conventional medicine is based upon science, and it’s all a big lie. Seek natural remedies!
A brief overview of significant events in the regulation of the medical industry
Physicians Act 1540 – An Act concerning the Privileges of Physicians.
Superceded by The Medical Act 1983
Herbalists Act 1542 c. 8. An Act that Persons being no common Surgeons, may administer outward Medicines.
The Herbalist’s Charter – 1542
This Act was repealed by section 1 of, and Schedule 1 to, the Statute Law Revision Act 1958.
The leading physicians of the time wanted the power to grant licenses to those qualified to practice medicine and to punish unqualified practitioners and those engaging in malpractice. A small group of physicians led by the scholar Thomas Linacre petitioned king Henry VIII to establish a college of physicians in 1518.
As the founding charter decreed, this college would ‘curb the audacity of those wicked men who shall profess medicine more for the sake of their avarice than from the assurance of any good conscience, whereby many inconveniences may ensue to the rude and credulous populace.’
In 1523 an Act of Parliament extended the licensing powers from London to the whole of England. Source: RCP
Founded in 1518, by a royal charter from king Henry VIII, the Royal College of Physicians of London is the oldest medical college in England.
1780: Opium had been used in China since the 7th century as a medicine for pain and surgery, but in the 17th century more opium had been introduced by European traders as a recreational drug, mixed with tobacco and smoked from a long pipe and bowl over a lamp that would vaporize the opium. Europeans opened Opium Dens in China and became a profitable venture as Chinese opium addicts began to emerge. Great Britain, desiring to control Chinese trade and limit Chinese government resources, saw the opium dens and emerging opiate addictions within China as a geostrategic opportunity.
In 1817, British Parliament decided that empowering the Opium Trade in China would be the most effective weapon against the economic impositions of the Qing Dynasty. Britain had begun planting opium in the British Raj, particularly in cotton-growing regions of Bengal and Malwa. The Indians were wary of opium and only agreed to grow it if it was strictly sold to China of which Britain readily agreed. Opium sales to China from India would become the exclusive right of the British East India Company, but it also provided economic opportunity for smaller American opium traders. The Russell family took the lead in purchasing opium from Turkey and trading it to both Britain and China in exchange for medical opium and other luxury goods. Samuel Russell’s Russell & Company would become one of the largest economic players in the international opium, tea, and silk markets by 1842.
Opium in the United States prior to 1850, was not used recreationally in the United States; recreational use would emerge with the Gold Rush, starting in 1849, in California; the shipping of Chinese workhands with opium trade experience to work in gold mines and California railroads would bring opium dens to major commercial centers like San Francisco. However opium use for recreational purposes would not become a major social epidemic until after the American Civil War with the emergence of Soldier’s Disease and morphine dependence. Source
In more recent times around 1900’s, Titans of industry such as Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Morgan and Astor wanted to control the world’s financial system as a whole. They recognized the potential for profit and monetary gain in the drug industry. They set up our medical system of drugs, surgery, and radiation. These same for profit titans were also the owners of chemical and oil industries. They made an alliance with a huge German company called I.G. Farben the world’s largest chemical and pharmaceutical company in Germany and the largest financier of the Nazi rise to power.
Big Pharma decided to make their big push to corner the drug market with the US Pure Food and Drug Act championed by their designer politician Theodore Roosevelt who had risen through the Republican ranks heavily controlled and sponsored by the owners of Big Pharma. Roosevelt secured the unholy alliance of the Pharmaceutical Industry with the Temperance and Eugenics movement, that evolved into a political and social beast the Republicans and the American society itself could hardly seem to control. Medical Marihuana and Opium were restricted and from 1898 to 1910 Heroin was openly commercially marketed as a ‘wonder drug’, cough suppressant, and as a cure for morphine addiction. Big Pharma sought to have heroin promoted over medical marihuana to weaken the marihuana market enough to seize control over it. In 1910, however, Big Pharma suffered a blow when it was found that heroin metabolized into morphine and they were regulated more aggressively by the Taft administration.
Pharmaceutical companies first gained control of the teaching system for conventional doctors or those who accepted drugs, surgery and radiation.
The Temperance monster that the Republican Party had created, evolved during the 1910’s into a race based purification movement that sought to abolish all drug use to purify the white race and it had found its final form under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson. Wilson’s presidency would highlight some of the most egregious actions in the history of the United States with the apex of the American Eugenics movement, the Federal Reserve Act, the state by state prohibition of marihuana throughout Wilson’s presidency, the Harrison Narcotics Tax Act, the Federal Income Tax, the Federal Farm Loan Act, The Espionage Act of 1917, the Sedition Act of 1918, the Ludlow Massacre, the Red Scare, Alcohol Prohibition, and World War I itself.
Then it gave the AMA the power to exclude all other doctors from practising.
Then it took control over the entire drug testing process while heavily influencing the publications that review those drugs.
Big Pharma used its profits during the war to diversify into finance capital, producing Wall Street power players like the Union Banking Corporation of New York, W.A. Harriman & Co. later Browns Brothers Harriman and allying with the Rockefellars in National City Bank. Bernard Baruch and Samuel Pryor to profit from the arms trade. Big Pharma’s banking entities developed during this time would later serve to enhance their relationships with British and German companies. These entities would also enhance the careers of many prominent Republican politicians of whom Big Pharma would later help propel to primacy in both the 1920’s and mid-to-late 20th century.
America in the 1920s would descend into a quagmire of organized crime, bootlegging, inequality and political corruption on a scale unseen before. Prohibition of medical cannabis and of many other natural drugs would open a pandora’s box that would come to curse the United States for a hundred years as organized crime rushed in to fulfill the demands for marijuana, opiates, and alcohol by the veterans of World War I suffering from post-traumatic stress and to meet the new cultural demands of the age. The Opium Cartel now transformed into Big Pharma, would retain private and privileged access to medical cannabis and opium throughout the century, limiting its availability to control the pharmaceutical market and produce byproducts for high prices at the American patient’s ultimate expense.
The threat posed by unregulated vitamins was not nearly as dangerous as the potential consequences of unregulated drugs. Yet legislation was enacted only when drug tragedies incensed the public and forced Congress to act. After the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act, there was no federal legislation dealing with drugs for decades, although the American Medical Association (AMA) did attempt to educate physicians and the public about pharmaceuticals. The AMA published books exposing quack medicines, gradually adopted standards for advertisements in medical journals, and in 1929, initiated a program of testing drugs and granting a Seal of Acceptance to those meeting its standards. Only drugs that received the seal were eligible to advertise in AMA journals.
Dangerous drugs were still sold legally, however, because safety testing was not required before marketing. Well into the 1930s, pharmaceutical companies still manufactured many 19th and early 20th century drugs that were sold in bulk to pharmacists, who then compounded them into physicians’ prescriptions. But newer drugs, such as many biologicals and sulfa drugs (after 1935), were packaged for sale directly to consumers and seemed to represent the future of drug manufacturing.
In 1937, an American pharmaceutical company produced a liquid sulfa drug. Attempting to make sulfanilamide useful for injections, the company mixed it with diethylene glycol—the toxic chemical now used in automobile antifreeze. Ultimately sold as a syrup called Elixir of Sulfanilamide, the drug concoction was on the market for two months, in which time it killed more than 100 people, including many children, who drank it.
1930 – The AMA changed it’s name to the Food & Drugs Administration. FDA.
Up to 1980 most medical research in America was funded by the National Institute of Health.
After 1980 for profit organizations gave complete control of research to drug companies.
Then it extended its control over the government entity that is supposed to verify the drug’s safety and efficacy or the FDA.
It now has complete control in USA.
The pharmaceuticals called big pharma are the wealthiest companies in the world.
The pharmaceutical industry does not create cures they create customers.
What boggles the mind is how and why they continue to keep and make new customers with such EXTREMELY POOR RESULTS????

The numbers are much the same for the rest of the world.
Our Current Healthcare System is Flawed and has FAILED
Unless you are in a serious accident, your best chance of living to a ripe old age is to avoid conventional doctors and hospitals, and learn nutrition, herbal medicine and other forms of natural medicine and go to naturopaths, functional medicine practitioners and nutritionists.
We now face a new threat the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS the WTO, NAFTA, and now CAFTA.
