"Who created orthodox medicine? Where did that come from? Well, it actually came from the Rockefeller Foundation back in 1901. Because of the Standard Oil scandals, no one wanted to be called a Rockefeller. Everybody hated all the Rockefellers. And so . . . Reverend Gates went to John D. Rockefeller, Sr. and told him, he said, "Here's a way we can repair your reputation. And he gave him a good example. He said, "There was this man who everybody hated . . . and he started giving money out for all sorts of philanthropic enterprises, and soon people forgot all of the bad things. . . ." Because Gates' father was a physician, and John D. Rockefeller's father was a quack snake-oil salesman, he said, "Let's form the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research." And so they created this in 1901. . . . Rockefeller owned what was called the drug trust: that's the major drug manufacturing firms all over the world: Merck Pharmaceuticals, Lederle, all of these . . . pharmaceutical companies . . . And of course, the aim was to remove all nutrition, references to nutritional type treatments, from the medical schools.
    "They closed down half the medical schools in the United States. There were 165 medical schools at the time. . . . Then [Rockefeller] had his anointed medical schools, which he poured his money into, appointed the professors from his own stock of professors. And so they created an educational system that taught the things that he wanted taught. And therefore every professor that came out of those programs taught the same thing." - "Dr.Russell Blaylock on Alex Jones Tv"The Rockefellers & Social engineering"1/5"

"We studied patients with advanced cancer (stage 4). 40 patients received 40,000-75,000 mg intravenously several times a week. These are patients that have not responded to other treatments. The initial tumor response rate was achieved in 75% of patients, defined as a 50% reduction or more in tumor size. . . As a radiation oncologist, I also give radiation therapy. Vitamin C has two effects. It increases the beneficial effects of radiation and chemotherapy and decreases the adverse effects. But this is not a subtle effect, is not 15-20%. It's a dramatic effect. Once you start using IV vitamin C, the effect is so dramatic that it is difficult to go back to not using it." Victor Marcial, M.D., an oncologist in Puerto Rico [2010 Sept] Cancer and Vitamin C: Evidence-Based Censorship  

“Not a single one of the scores of middle-aged-to-elderly people who have consulted me since 1981 for memory-loss or early Alzheimer's dementia - and who stayed on my program - has ever gone on to develop the full-blown Alzheimer's Disease.” The Good News about Alzheimer's Disease by John V. DOMmisse, MD, FRCPC

It is time to lay to rest the notion that germs jump into people and cause diseases. ----Emanuel Cheraskin, M.D., D.M.D. in Vitamin C: Who Needs It?

"We were using niacin and niacinamide before the new psychiatric drugs entered the North American market. Our results were better and safer but we had no one to support us. While drug results were more often more dramatic,  they were also much more dangerous. Eventually, it turned out that drugs, while helping in the short run and used in small doses, in the long run stopped the process of recovery long before the patients became well, and  froze them into a chronic semi-invalid state from which they can not recover as long as they remain on the medication.
    "Today, 47 years later, orthomolecular vitamin treatment is still relatively unknown. The use of drugs is world wide and sanctioned by powerful drug interests, the professional associations and governments. It seems not to matter that huge numbers of patients are being denied their chance for full recovery...... niacin has not been fenced in and the treatment has indeed been trampled on for the past 40 years by the galloping hordes of professional establishments, the American Psychiatric Association, governments, the FDA , the National Institutes of Mental Health, and by nearly every health-professional organization. It is a wonder that there are any orthomolecular doctors at all. ---Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D.

One day I was consulted by a young man who had cardiomyopathy - a degenerative disease of the heart muscle which, when severe, usually means that a heart transplant is the only hope for survival. He had been through the usual procedures, was obviously extremely ill and was on the waiting list for a suitable donor heart.
   I had read somewhere about an 'epidemic' of a particular form of cardiomyopathy in China where it was found that selenium supplements resulted in cures. I had also read about another form of this disease in New Zealand, occurring in sheep that were deficient in various trace elements. Therefore, I decided to try a broad mixture of various vitamins and minerals - Vitamin C, Vitamin E, B-Group Vitamins, Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium and cod-liver oil. The patient stopped smoking, began to eat 'good' food and with the cooperation of his wife lead a good life-style. Slowly, at first, he began to improve, then this became obvious to an extent where the heart was functioning at 80% of normal. Eventually he was able to lead a normal life - working and without any apparent heart problems.
          Naturally, I was curious and pleased. So when I was confronted by an elderly gentleman with severe cardiomyopathy of rapid onset I decided to 'give him the works'. His heart, on the X-Ray was enormous and there was an extreme degree of cardiac failure. Response was dramatic. By the time he saw a specialist in Sydney a few weeks later his heart was of normal size and all was well.
         Now two cases do not represent much of a statistical study and there are many forms, therefore causes, of cardiomyopathy but it was obvious to me that I had come across something of enormous importance. Naturally, I tried to interest the cardiologists but this was a total waste of time. They had seen my patients, they could not offer an explanation for the 'cures' but their attitude remained hostile.
     During the next few years I treated several more patients with similar dramatic responses. No doubt, if I saw more patients I would eventually come across some where causes were different and results would, therefore, not be good but it so happened that I never had a failure. To this day, unfortunately, my colleagues remain entrenched in scepticism."---Medical Pioneer of the 20th century p393

"From different kinds of malignant tumours good results were achieved in the following cases: mammary cancer, cancer of the prostate, testicles, rectum, ovaries, uterus, larynx, brain tumours, malignant melanoma, Hodgkin's disease. (However, tumours with poor vasculation, e.g., tumours of the bones, sarcomas, lymphoadentises, neuroblastomas, etc. do not show satisfactory improvement.) In the case of leukaemias the blood picture of the patient shows fast and lasting improvement, the number of white blood cells decreases to the normal value, the number of platelets increases. Although I did not deal with diseases of different origin, patients and doctors using the Drops observed that they are effective in the following cases as well: lack of appetite, disorder of digestion, fatigability, weakness, insomnia, enfeeblement, persisting headache, anaemia, menstrual and menopausal problems, nausea, asthmatic diseases, bronchitis, child retention problems in pregnancy, cervical lesions, frequent subfebrility and developmental anomalies in children, certain types of diabetes in children and adults, persisting diarrhoeas of non-bacterial origin, vasoconstriction and hypertension, non-traumatic epilepsy, ulcers, arthritis, haemorrhoidal disease, aphtha, pemphigus and multiple sclerosis.
    The Drops can help 65-70% of the patients suffering from these diseases. Out of this group of patients about 30-35% will be capable of going back to work and lead a normal life. In the case of the remainder (approximately 35%) the question of going back to work does not arise partly because of their advanced age, partly because of the permanent damages caused, e.g. by operations." Interview with Dr. Jozsef Beres

"The only cure of a degenerative disease ever established, has been by a vitamin, mineral, or essential food factor. No prescription drug has EVER cured a SINGLE degenerative disease. While antibiotics can kill bacteria in the body and have no doubt saved lives that would otherwise have been lost since the discovery of penicillin, this does not mean that the bacteria is the CAUSE of the "disease" being treated nor does it mean that antibiotics are the BEST way to handle the situation because Klenner (MD)demonstrated way back in the fifties (published hospital studies, Southern Medical J) that intravenous vitamin C in megadoses kills off ANY infection known to man (including tetanus -lockjaw) without ANY harmful side effects. What is being treated when an antibiotice is used... is the SYMPTOM, not the disease, but that is another story for another day. To say that bacteria cause disease is like saying that the flies cause the manure pile and firemen cause house fires because each of the latter are found on the scene. Bacteria are EFFECTS.... not CAUSES."--Dr Duffy DC

"Deltason may reactivate a dormant case of tuberculosis....or activate a latent case of diabetes." ---(Deltason/Orasone--generic name Prednison, a steroid)."--PDR

"As a practicing physician for over fifty years, I have reached three basic conclusions as to the cause and cure of disease. This book is about those conclusions.
    The first is that the primary cause of disease is not germs. Rather, I believe that disease is caused by a toxemia which results in cellular impairment and breakdown, thus paving the way for the multiplication and onslaught of germs.
    My second conclusion is that in almost all cases the use of drugs in treating patients is harmful. Drugs often cause serious side effects, and sometimes even create new diseases. The dubious benefits they afford the patient are at best temporary. Yet the number of drugs on the market increases geometrically every year as each chemical firm develops its own variation of the compounds. The physician is indeed rare who can be completely aware of the potential danger from the side effects of all of these drugs.
    My third conclusion is that disease can be cured through the proper use of correct foods. This Statement may sound deceptively simple, but I have arrived at it only after intensive study of a highly complex subject: colloid and endocrine chemistry.
    My conclusions are based on experimental and observational results, gathered through years of successfully treating patients. Occasionally I have resorted to the use of drugs in emergency situations, but those times have been rare. Instead, I have sought to prescribe for my patients' illnesses antidotes which Nature has placed at their disposal. "---Bieler, Henry G., M.D. (1965). Food Is Your Best Medicine.   

    "Why is Health Not Yet a Human Right? That is why: 1.The market place of the pharmaceutical industry is the human body. The foundation of this industry is the 'Business with Diseases' - not its prevention or eradication. 2. More than 24.000 pharmaceutical drugs currently on the market -98% of all drugs - are without any proven therapeutic value. 3.The dangerous side effects of these pharmaceutical drugs have become the fourth leading cause of death - after heart attacks, strokes and cancer - thereby further expanding the global pharmaceutical market. Think about it !
    The Nature of the Pharmaceutical Industry. The natural purpose and driving force of the pharmaceutical industry is to increase sales of pharmaceutical drugs for ongoing diseases and to find new diseases to market existing drugs. By this very nature, the pharmaceutical industry has no interest in curing diseases. The eradication of any disease inevitably destroys a multi-billion dollar market of prescription drugs as a source of revenues. Therefore, pharmaceutical drugs are primarily developed to relieve symptoms, but not to cure. If eradication therapies for diseases are discovered and developed, the pharmaceutical industry has an inherent interest to suppress, discredit andobstruct these medical breakthroughs in order to make sure that diseases continue as the very basis for a lucrative prescription drug market. The economic interest of the pharmaceutical industry itself is the main reason why no medical breakthrough has been made for the control of the most common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, cancer, and osteoporosis, and why these diseases continue like epidemics on a worldwide scale.
    For the same economic reasons, the pharmaceutical industry has now formed an international cartel by the code name "Codex Alimentarius" with the aim to outlaw any health information in connection with vitamins and to limit free access to natural therapies on a worldwide scale.
    At the same time, the pharmaceutical companies withhold public information about the effects and risks of prescription drugs and life-threatening side effects are omitted or openly denied.
    In order to assure the status quo of this deceptive scheme, a legion of pharmaceutical lobbyists is employed to influence legislation, control regulatory agencies (e.g. FDA), and manipulate medical research and education. Expensive advertising campaigns and PR agencies are used to deceive the public. Millions of people and patients around the world are defrauded twice: A major portion of their income is used up to finance the exploding profits of the pharmaceutical industry. In return, they are offered a medicine that does not even cure."--Dr Rath MD

"Pharmaceutical companies are very annoyed with niacin because their products have to compete with it. Some of their cholesterol-lowering drugs cost up to $150 a month while niacin costs about $10." -----Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD  1997 Interview by Peter Barry Chowka.

"In the 1950s the Schute brothers in Ontario did some amazing work with vitamin E. Their claims were simple. They said vitamin E worked against heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. They were greeted with laughter. A couple of years ago, the Harvard School of Public Health published a huge study on vitamin E and showed that just 100 units of vitamin E per day decreased the death rate by 40 percent. Suppose they had done that in 1960? How many Americans would have been saved in the intervening 35 years had Harvard taken a responsible position and said, "We are skeptical of these claims but let's look at them"? But they wouldn't do that--it didn't fit their paradigm. So vitamin E was totally destroyed by the establishment. Think of the cost of those decisions."--Linus Pauling Interview by Peter Chowka 1996

"No amount of evidence can persuade anyone who is not listening." Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D.

"Mr X has a lack of vitamin C and contracts a cold. The cold leads to pneumonia. Mr X dies and his body is taken to the mortuary…not with the diagnosis "lack of vitamin C", but with the diagnosis "pneumonia". This does not matter for him any more, but matters for the rest of mankind, which is mislead in its thinking and judgement about vitamins."---Dr Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, nobel prize winner for discovering Ascorbate.

"If the  entire diagnostic scheme were scrapped today, it would make almost no difference to the way these children were treated, or to the outcome of treatment. Nor would their patients feel any better or worse" (Dr. Hoffer's ABC of Natural Nutrition for Children). Statements like these do not exactly endear one to the medical community."--Dr Saul

"The FDA won’t spend a dime on ozone research, but they spent over $1 million intimidating, harassing, and persecuting me alone." Dr Jonathen Wright

"We see the same thing in Sweden, though to a less marked degree. The rise in tuberculosis mortality was recorded in 1914-1916, and in those years the consumption of bread and flour rose, whereas that of meat decreased. After 1916 we see a steady and continuous fall in tuberculosis mortality, and at the same time flour foods fell off while the consumption of meat and fish rose rapidly. It may be added too, that in England, a rise in tuberculosis mortality coincided with a lower consumption of meat and butter and an increased consumption of flour foods. ...There has been a similar rise in tuberculosis mortality in practically all belligerent countries in Europe during and since World War II and for exactly similar reasons, namely, a great reduction in the consumption of protein foods, such as, meat, fish, and eggs, along with an increased consumption of the more available and cheaper starchy foodstuffs."--Sandler MD (Diet Prevents Polio)

"It is well known that the immune system must be adequately supplied with many nutrients if it is to function properly, including especially vitamins A, C, E, B6 and a number of minerals, including zinc, magnesium, and selenium.  Nutritional levels of these substances are not only harmless, they are essential to good health.  Since people do not change their diets readily, I believe that foods should be fortified with these nutrients – especially foods that will be consumed by infants and children."--Dr Rimland

"As a parent and as a full-time professional researcher, I am bitterly disappointed with the medical establishment’s dismal record with regard to autism over the past 60 years.  The medical schools, as well as the governmental agencies, have consistently supported outmoded, unproven and even disproven theories from the very beginning, and have actively opposed the most promising approaches for the  treatment of autism.  They supported the psychoanalytically-based theories which held the mother responsible for causing autism through her supposedly hostile attitude toward the child.  They opposed the use of behavior modification, the most uniformly beneficial treatment for autism, by claiming that it neglected the deep-seated emotional blocks that were supposedly at the root of autism.  They have ignored, and continue to ignore, the long series of studies conducted both in the U. S. and Europe showing that the elimination of foods containing gluten and casein from the diet brings about marked improvement in many autistic children.  They have consistently ignored the series of 18 consecutive studies, conducted by researchers in 6 countries, which showed that almost half of all autistic children and adults respond favorably to high doses of vitamin B6 and magnesium., with no adverse effects.  Eleven of these studies were double-blind placebo-crossover experiments.  There is no drug that comes close to B6/magnesium in terms of safety, efficacy and positive research findings.   Tens of millions of dollars have been spent on non-productive lines of research, while virtually no money at all has been given to research on the methods of alternative medicine, which are far more promising in terms of both safety and efficacy."---Dr Rimland

“Chickenpox gave equally good response (to Vitamin C therapy), ... vesicles were crusted after the first 24 hours, and the patient well in three to four days."--Dr Klenner

"There is not one, but many cures for cancer available.   But they are all being systematically suppressed by the ACS, the NCI and the major oncology centres.   They have too much of an interest in the status quo."--Dr Robert Atkins, M.D.

"What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE, the treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable, in vitro (test-tube) as well as in vivo (real)... " Dr. Dan C. Roehm M.D. FACP (Oncologist and former cardiologist) in 1990.    

"But the ordinary child who gets measles, even the child with a moderate degree of malnutrition and so forth, if you give intravenous vitamin C supplementary to other forms of treatment, the response very often, not always, is absolutely dramatic If you get them early enough. You must get them early. If you delay, and they have been unconscious let us say for days, or a day or two, you cannot reverse it. The damage is permanent. If you get them early, give them this treatment and there is no problem. And that makes me very, very angry, because they talk about "Oh, we must stop these kids getting measles" and so forth. Well, all right, I can fix them if they get measles."---Dr Kalokerinos (International Vaccine Newsletter June 1995)

"I have been consulted by many researchers who proposed bold studies of the effects of massive doses of ascorbate.   Every time the university center, the ethics committee, the pharmacy committee, etc. deny permission for the use of massive doses of ascorbate and render the study almost useless.  Seasoned researchers depending upon government grants do not even try to study adequate doses.   All of this results in a massive accumulation of knowledge about very little which gives the impression that there is no more of real importance to be learned. This accumulation of minutia hides the great effects of ascorbate already known by some.   The following sites reflect this problem.  As you read these learned papers, you will realize that they seem to be completely unaware of the uses of massive doses of ascorbate.  One of the most amusing aspects of this research are the speculations and research into the toxicity and other adverse reactions of tiny doses of ascorbate when many have used for years 20 to 100 times the amounts being discussed."--Dr Cathcart 

"We know the cause of SIDS.  We can and have prevented them.  It's all done with a compound called ascorbate.  Not to use it means deaths will continue.   There is no other answer.  There never will be.  For our findings are based on scientific facts.  Not medical opinion."---Dr Kalokerinos

"I would agree with Kalokerinos and Klenner that crib deaths are often caused by sudden ascorbate depletions. The induced scurvy in some vital regulatory center kills the child. This induced deficiency is more likely to occur when the diet is poor in vitamin C. All of the epidemiologic factors predisposing to crib deaths are associated with low vitamin C intake or high vitamin C destruction."--Dr Cathcard, M.D. 

"I tell patients that tranquilizers alone never cure anyone. They merely reduce the intensity of the symptoms and make life slightly more endurable. They create a better behaved, chronic dependent person. Only with orthomolecular treatment can the majority of schizophrenic patients hope to become well and normally independent."---Abram Hoffer, M.D.

"Orthomolecular treatment does not lend itself to rapid drug-like control of symptoms, but….patients get well to a degree not seen by tranquilizer therapists. Whobelieve orthomolecular therapists are prone to exageration. Those who’ve see the results are astonsihed."---Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D.

"Viral hepatitis of all types is one of the easiest diseases for ascorbic acid to cure."---Dr Cathcart, M.D. 

"Although we were able to cure many cases of polio with massive doses of ascorbic acid, one single instance demonstrates the value of vitamin C. Two brothers were sick with poliomyelitis. These two boys were given 10 and 12 grams of ascorbic acid, according to weight, intravenously with a 50 c.c. syringe, every eight hours for 4 times and then every 12 hours for 4 times. They also were given one gram every two hours by mouth around the clock. They made complete recovery and both were athletic stars in high school and college. A third child, a neighbour, under the care of another physician received no ascorbic acid. This child also lived. The young lady is still wearing braces."---Dr Klenner

"The heart surgery industry is booming. According to American Heart Association statistics, in 1995 1,460,000 angiograms (the diagnostic procedure that starts the ball rolling) were performed at an average cost of $10,880 per procedure. This resulted in 573,000 bypass surgeries at $44,820 a shot, and 419,000 angioplasties (the balloon procedure for opening up arteries) at $20,370 each. The total bill for these procedures is over $50 billion a year.
        There is no scientific justification for the use of angiography, balloon angioplasty and bypass surgery to treat most cardiovascular disease. Several studies over the past two decades, involving over 6,000 patients with heart disease, have shown that patients funneled into surgical procedures do significantly worse than those treated with noninvasive techniques. “Noninvasive” refers to the use of medication, but not diet, exercise and multiple vitamin supplements, which can be quite beneficial.”
        "Other than their cost, the only thing definitely known about these procedures is that they do kill people. Roughly one in 25 patients having a bypass and about one in 65 undergoing angioplasty die from the procedure. Frankly, if we took all of the bypass surgeons and catheter-pushing cardiologists, tied their thumbs together and locked them in a closet, we would save close to 30,000 lives and over $50 billion ever year."   [Julian Whitaker, Health & Healing, Sep 98, Vol 8, No. 9]

"There is no better example of the weakness of our dominant medicine than its clearly ineffective War on Cancer. There is no better example of the superiority of a complementary approach than in the management of this dread disease….we are equally concerned about whether mainstream medicine’s demand for proof works to maintain it at its current level of ineptitude."---Dr Atkins, M.D

 "The 'drugs or surgery only approach that modern medicine uses to treat today's diseases is archaic."—Julian Whitaker

 "I look upon cancer in the same way that I look upon heart disease, arthritis, high blood pressure, or even obesity, for that matter, in that by dramatically strengthening the body's immune system through diet, nutritional supplements, and exercise, the body can rid itself of the cancer, just as it does in other degenerative diseases. Consequently, I wouldn't have chemotherapy and radiation because I'm not interested in therapies that cripple the immune system, and, in my opinion, virtually ensure failure for the majority of cancer patients."---Dr Julian Whitaker, M.D.
