"My feeling is that somewhere around 90% of surgery is a waste of time, money, and life......'Almost half of the 100,000 or so surgeons we actually do have right now are superfluous. Those 50,000 or so extra unsheathed scalpels do a lot of damage.'' ~ Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.

[2016 July] Is Lymph Node Removal with Cancer Surgery Really Necessary? “No published randomized controlled trial exists that demonstrates improved overall survival for patients with cancer of any type undergoing surgery of the regional lymphatics. We believe the presence of tumour in the regional lymphatics indicates the presence of systemic disease, and therapeutic interventions should be directed accordingly.”
 HOW ILLUMINATI LEADERS PLAN TO USE SURGICAL MUTILATION ON THEIR OWN SUBORDINATES AS A METHOD OF BEHAVIOR CONTROL BY Kerth R. Barker
[2016 May] Many operations are no better than placebo, says a top surgeon In his new book, Surgery, The Ultimate Placebo, Harris lists a range of operations as “today’s placebo surgeries”, saying their effectiveness is “under question”. They include spinal fusion for back pain, knee arthroscopy, coronary stenting, some shoulder surgery and appendix removal, laparoscopy for bowel adhesions and repairs of ruptured tendons and some fractures. Procedures that are useful in certain cases are overused in others – he puts hysterectomy and caesarean sections in this category, pointing out wide variations in rates of the operations between hospitals, states and countries.

[pdf 1979] IS THE CURRENT TREATMENT OF CANCER SELF-LIMITING IN THE EXTENT OF ITS SUCCESS? by Ernst H. KrokowskiIt can no longer be doubted that under certain conditions diagnostic or surgical procedures can result in metastases. Analysis of metastatic growth rates has shown that from 30% (in hypernephroma) to 90% (in sarcoma and seminoma) of the diagnosed metastases were provoked by such procedures. This has been established by numerous animal experiments and clinical observations and necessitates a change in the currently held concept of cancer therapy. The previously applied and proven treatments by surgery and radiation must be preceded by metastasis prophylaxis. Three different ways to achieve such a prophylaxis are proposed.
Frauds: Uncovering the Biggest Health Scam in History (Paperback) by Charles T.,
Did you know that...
*The angiogram used for recommending procedures on the heart is highly
inaccurate and that most angiograms are not necessary.
*There is no evidence that coronary bypass surgery or balloon angioplasties extend life, yet over 600,000 of these procedures are being done each year.
*Blood cholesterol levels are ineffective in determining heart attack risk and much more accurate measurements exist but are seldom used.
*Cholesterol-lowering drugs do not extend life, but may actually increase the overall death rate.
*The primary focus in the medical industry is to make a profit and, therefore, much of the advice and treatment we receive is not in our best interest.
*We pay an estimated $45 billion per year on preventive and treatment measures for heart disease that don't work.
*Obstructions in coronary arteries can open up with diet and lifestyle changes alone, but because of financial incentives doctors prefer sending patients into surgery.
*Conventional treatment for heart disease often does not work but safe, inexpensive methods are available that do work.
If your doctor recommends getting an angiogram, coronary bypass surgery, balloon angioplasty, or taking cholesterol-lowering drugs your best course of action may be to run out the door. For most people these procedures/treatments are not effective and are completely unnecessary. The most popular medical procedures are the most profitable for the health care industry but are often the least effective. Hundreds of thousands of people each year are deceived in undergoing expensive medical treatments that do no good and may even do a great deal of harm. Highly effective procedures that are low-risk and inexpensive are ignored or even ridiculed. Recommending expensive, high-risk procedures over the cheaper, more effective ones amounts to nothing more than fraud. If you had the choice of going through a risky $20,000 surgical procedure or simply taking a daily vitamin supplement which one would you choose? Most patients aren't given the choice.
These facts, and more, led Charles T. McGee, M.D. to write this hard hitting, expose of the health care system. In it you will learn which procedures and treatments to avoid and which ones offer the most hope. If you are concerned about heart disease, and everyone should be, you need to read this book!
