The Whole Story: Alternative Medicine on Trial, by Toby Murcott, sets out to provide an unbiased overview of alternative medicine; cataloging its strengths and weaknesses. Mr. Murcott was the science correspondent for BBC World Radio, and he holds a PhD. in biochemistry. His attempt at unbiased reporting in the book is flawed, because he misses a crucial point of good journalism: a journalist cannot ethically present both sides of a controversy in a balanced manner, if either side is known to be distorting the facts. A reporter has a duty to note such deceptions, or he merely becomes a passive part of the propaganda apparatus himself, through his omissions. Objectivity is a vaulted (but rarely seen) ideal of modern journalists, but it is hardly idyllic whenever it seduces them into perpetuating known lies themselves. They may be drawn into the corruption themselves, ironically by working to distance themselves from it.
We have written in the past about the detriments of socialized medicine, and informed our readers that underneath its sparkling guise of humanitarianism resides an insidious charade that will lead to less options, and worse care.
In Britain, which has the supposed gold standard of socialized medicine, the elderly are denied knee replacements and cataract surgeries, due to a collapsing economy. The weakest of society are being left to suffer, something perhaps devolving into the caveman past, or worse. Some of the nursing homes have been shutdown as a cost saving move. Perhaps the elderly will find a better life on the streets with the alcoholics and hopeless drug addicts, and perhaps they will finally feel shameful for being such parasites upon society. Parasites are exactly what they ultimately are under communistic and socialistic ideologies, and the behavior in Britain is more than proof of it.
Most people believe that doctors save far more than they harm, and that any doctor-induced injuries are usually minor. However, there is plenty of evidence that shows otherwise. In the year 2000, doctors in Israel decided to go on strike; demanding increases in pay. Before long, morticians began to notice a bizarre trend.

During Christmas time, people tend to be more trusting, and are not as vigilant about protecting their health as they are throughout the year. Yet, there are elevated poisoning risks during Christmas. One of the biggest health threats at Christmas is lead. Lead is present in the cabling of Christmas lights, and in the solder of artificial Christmas trees.
American shoppers may notice this warning on Christmas light packages:
"Handling the coated electrical wire on this product exposes you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after use."
"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."
-- Albert Einstein
Bees have been slowly declining in number since 1972 . The drop in bee populations was traditionally called "fall dwindle disease", which is cited here for the aid of future research; even though the word disease is not applicable. In 2006, a far more rapid bee population decline ensued. The problem was renamed to "colony collapse disorder", or less frequently "honey bee depopulation syndrome". Despite the various mentally-challenged naming conventions of this problem, it nevertheless is becoming a very serious problem for all of us. Prior to 2006, the gradual decline was attributed to a number of causes, including pesticide use and Varroa mites. By early 2007, the decline had reached new proportions. Bees simply disappeared, instead of dying in their hives. Large bee hives became miniature ghost towns, and there is still no official explanation for the disappearance of the bees.
The Washington Post recently reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is using the process that is designed for veterinary drugs to approve genetically modified salmon. The F.D.A. does not have any legitimate process for regulating genetically modified foods, despite the fact that this request has been pending for 10 years. Approving genetically engineered salmon as a veterinary drug allows for research data to be conveniently hidden from the public, under the guise of trade secrets. It is yet another example of the F.D.A. using legal chicanery and flagrant deception to sideswipe both U.S. law, and its own mandates.

The number of queries to the Health Wyze Report for information about fraudulent alternative medicines and unwise supplementation has increased dramatically during the past couple of years. Some of the requests included questions about the wisdom of eating mushrooms to cure cancer, drinking iodine for thyroid issues, and the supposed benefits of eating underwater plants. The questions might have been funny if the long term results of the misinformation were not so tragic. As health researchers, we noticed unmistakable trends that could not be ignored concerning the increases in frequency of these requests. The spikes occurred especially after two events.
When we began our work at Health Wyze Media in 2008 as Naturally Good Magazine, we knew that genetic engineering was a rapidly-growing problem. Yet we were ignorant of the staggering breadth of the problem. Only a small percentage of the health researchers such as us, and the top executives of the biotechnology industry have any comprehension of how corrupted the food supply in the Americas has become. The problem is so wide and so severe that we have avoided reporting it for fear that truthful reporting on this topic would harm our credibility. People would never believe it. For us as reporters, the exploding disease statistics prove that our discoveries are not flawed or exaggerated, and those staggering numbers include all of those supposedly mysterious "genetic disorders" that never existed before in history. Let's not forget those new "immune system disorders" either, which do not afflict peoples in remote societies that live on organic diets.
We encourage daily supplementation of vitamin C for everyone. It protects against everything from sudden infant death syndrome (S.I.D.S) to scurvy, heart disease, and in some cases, cancer. Two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, recommended a whopping 3 grams of vitamin C every day for the average healthy male, and 6 grams for those at risk of heart disease. There are many methods of vitamin C supplementation, in the form of capsules, powders and syrups. For decades, parents have been providing their children with chewable vitamin C pills.
Vitamin C is destructive to tooth enamel, so chewable pills may lead to increased cavities, particularly in those who are lacking minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin C should never be taken in a manner which leaves residues of it on the teeth for an extended time. Some well-intentioned toothpaste manufacturers have misguidedly added vitamin C or "citrus" to their formulas, without realizing the dental problems that this presents. Similarly, some alternative medicine sites on the Internet recommend cleaning the teeth with lemon-based solutions. Citrus acids have the tendency to make the teeth feel clean. This occurs partly because the acid strips the teeth of everything, including the minerals bonding with them. It can cause long-term enamel damage; especially when it is combined with abrasives or stiff bristle brushes.
Alternative medicine is often criticized for its use of time-tested methods of observable cause and effect relationships, such as the observation that those who get vaccines can often regress within a short time period, and are disproportionately diagnosed with autism. A recent fan-mail from an insider commented about our "anecdotal, unfounded, unscientific gobbledygook". He noticed that we are not "scientific" like the people he considers to be "experts", who by the way, cannot seem to even cure their way out of a runny nose, much less any real disease. On the other hand, the list of people we have helped to cure is ever growing.
Most people have been taught to expect only thoroughly-tested, scientific methodology from mainstream medicine. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The Office of Technology Assessment Health Program was asked by the U.S. Senate Committee on Human Resources to evaluate standard medical procedures in 1978. They produced the stunning report, Assessing the Efficacy and Safety of Medical Technologies which is being hosted at Princeton University. It exposed some alarming statistics, which most people will resist believing. We have archived a copy of the document in case it disappears, as is common for such documents after we cover their story.
