The article enclosed “Looking For the Contradictions” is an outstanding commentary that not only challenges the status quo but makes an extremely sound case for reviewing current medical thinking and practice, encompassing all areas from nutrition to cancer therapy. Medical education has not been reviewed since the Flexner report funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, composed between the years 1915 to 1925. This would clearly indicate that further review would be appropriate at this point in time.
Health care systems today are largely controlled by governments, insurance companies, and Wall Street corporations with additional and often adverse influence exerted from the pharmaceutical sector.
It takes a great deal of courage for people such as Dr. Kendrick and others to attempt to bring logic into the many false concepts currently in vogue. Many myths are disseminated on the basis of conscious or subliminally motivated greed.
Personally, I take this opportunity to compliment Dr. Kendrick for writing this article, which everyone concerned with healthcare should read. It is apparent that our culture has deviated sharply from the concepts of integrity, creativity and independent thought. In essence the individual has been destroyed and replaced by governments whose main objectives are to get elected and increase taxes, insurance companies whose primary interest is the bottom line and pharmaceutical companies that are similarly motivated, having long given up the challenging task of developing specific curative products.
When will all this stop and how can the negative process going forward be reversed? I welcome your suggestions and trust that you will enjoy the article by Dr. Kendrick.
