Vaccines, Big Pharma, GMOs, and Medical Tyranny

Following the increase in cases of Autism and other immune disorders among some particularly vulnerable people, several recognized specialists are questioning the safety of large scale vaccination.

Despite the serious side effects, pharmaceutical companies, the medical profession and government authorities continue to bury their heads in the sand. With this hard-hitting documentary, Lina B. Moreco highlights a very worrying public health problem.

An eye-opening interview with Dr Sherri Tenpenny about the dangers of vaccines.

Here are some of the quotes from Dr Tenpenny in this interview:

“The money isn’t really to be made in the vaccine industry. The money is made by Big Pharma with all of the drugs that are given to treat and address all the illnesses that are subsequent to the side effects of the vaccines….

“True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200 year mistake….

“If we could cut vaccination by 90 percent and get everybody’s vitamin D levels up between 60 and 80 [ng / dl], we wouldn’t have this health care problem that we have to tax everybody to death to try to take care of people. People would be healthy….

“It seems as though the pharmaceutical industry looks at children as nothing more than a repository of their products, whatever those products are… whether they are a vaccine, an artificial coloring from the food industry, something in a pill such as a medication, and we see these kids, they’re not healthy, they’re pale, they just don’t look healthy. And then the pharmaceutical industry paints these happy pictures that we have to keep vaccinating these kids to keep them healthy. And the pediatricians say because these kids are sick, we need to vaccinate them more!”

About the executives of these vaccine companies, Dr. Tenpenny says, “Some of them will go to jail. Because I’m sure that some of them know absolutely what’s going on.”

Big Bucks, Big Pharma: Marketing Disease and Pushing Drugs

Big Bucks, Big Pharma pulls back the curtain on the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry to expose the insidious ways that illness is used, manipulated, and in some instances created, for capital gain. Focusing on the industry’s marketing practices, media scholars and health professionals help viewers understand the ways in which direct-to-consumer (DTC) pharmaceutical advertising glamorizes and normalizes the use of prescription medication, and works in tandem with promotion to doctors. Combined, these industry practices shape how both patients and doctors understand and relate to disease and treatment. Ultimately, Big Bucks, Big Pharma challenges us to ask important questions about the consequences of relying on a for-profit industry for our health and well-being.

Featuring interviews with Dr. Marcia Angell (Dept. of Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School; Former Editor New England Journal of Medicine), Dr. Bob Goodman (Columbia University Medical Center; Founder, No Free Lunch), Gene Carbona (Former Pharmaceutical Industry Insider and Current Executive Director of Sales, The Medical Letter), Katharine Greider (Journalist; Author, The Big Fix: How the Pharmaceutical Industry Rips Off American Consumers), Dr. Elizabeth Preston (Dept. of Communication, Westfield State College), and Dr. Larry Sasich (Public Citizen Health Research Group).

Cancer

This award-winning film is two hours long and covers a comprehensive range of topics. Although broken into three parts for the purposes of streaming, the documentary is broken into two parts.

Part I, Curing Cancer, deals with the failings of conventional cancer treatments and shows how conventional medicine wildly – and deceptively – exaggerates the benefits of treatments, while minimizing the risks. It will provide you with the information you need to accurately assess the risks and benefits of any treatment and speak intelligently to your doctor about such treatments. There is also a section on the ‘Cancer Industry’ which explains the history behind cancer treatments, the suppression of alternative treatments and why chemotherapy, radiation and surgery are the only treatments available to mainstream medicine.

Part II, Healing Cancer, shows how cancer can be successfully healed with dietary treatments and natural supplementation. It explains common misconceptions about cancer, shows how diets designed to fight cancer are more successful than conventional treatments, discusses startling cancer research findings with T. Colin Campbell (The China Study) and has interviews with people who have reversed cancers using diet. It also discusses supplementation and why attitude is important in reversing not only cancer, but any disease.

Participants include: T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. (Author of The China Study), Brian Clement, Ph.D. (Hippocrates Health Institute), Brenda Cobb (The Living Foods Institute), Mirea Ellis (The Kushi Institute), Charlotte Gerson (The Gerson Institute), Matt Lederman, M.D. (Transition to Health, Inc.), Thomas Lodi, M.D. (An Oasis of Healing), and John A. McDougall, M.D.
