Professors Michael Zimmerman and Rosalie David in England have an intriguing suggestion in their recent study of mummies: cancer may be a largely man-made disease. The study found no evidence of the disease in ancient corpses — leading to the theory that cancer may be the result of diet, pollution, and other man-made causes such as early use of snuff.
The researchers examined tissue from hundreds of Egyptian mummies and found only one case with cancer traces. Likewise, an earlier study of thousands of Neanderthal bones produced only one sample with possible cancer traces.
Some of the first published accounts of cancerous growths have been linked directly to such man-made causes as the use of snuff.
Such accounts largely occurred in the last 200 years with early accounts of nasal cancer (from snuff) and scrotal cancer in chimney sweeps — both in the eighteenth century.

Drugmakers top list of DOJ fraud settlements

GAP Summary: According to the advocacy group Taxpayers Against Fraud, the drug industry is the foremost source of Department of Justice settlements pertaining to fraud. Pharmaceutical companies comprised eight of the top ten fraud-related cases in this past year alone, paying the government a collective $3.1 billion under the False Claims Act.
Most of the cases relate to ‘off-label marketing’ — advertising medications for uses not approved by the FDA. Even with an increase in prosecutions and payouts, some public health advocates say harsher penalties are needed to curb illegal marketing. (end GAP Summary)

This could have been an interesting thread about the subject matter, but there’s no keeping the charlatans, cranks and crackpots out.
Yup – I am still waiting for you to disclose it here – are you, indeed, not a doctor, despite citing your graduation from a medical school education??
And all completely irrelevant to your hyperbolic claims about vaccines.
Right – the FDA can’t police these “cartels”, whilst at the same time the largest fines in history have been levied against them. And, all, of course, a tilt at irrelevant windmills.
And again, completely irrelevant, except as an insight into your pathological psychology.
And a national laughing stock it is! Are you not aware, that over the past decade+, the NIH ITSELF has spent over 1.5 billion dollars testing those “Complementary and Alternative” treatments and found all of them clinically useless, with the exception of chiropractic for lower back pain?
I certainly DO! But it’s not just me, this is from QUACKWATCH.COM:
I urge everyone reading this thread to take PatrickParamedic’s advice – read about his hero, Dr Lorraine Day at her own website, which PatrickParamedic provided and see for yourself the type of medical expertise PatrickP is espousing.
I must say, PatrickParamedic, I want to thank you. Not for avoiding all of my questions, not for moving the goalposts constantly, not for puffing up your own paltry credentials -although all of these things you you did most generously. No, I want to thank you for finally – in your own words – laying out on the table what an untrustworthy and dangerous piece of work you really are, and why no one should listen to another word from you.
