What's your source? Who said this? I have no way of knowing if it's real or made up unless you provide some more information.

Also, the quote itself is insanely stupid. Vaccines are the reason you don't have to worry about contracting smallpox and other diseases. I've never had measles, mumps or rubella. Why? Because vaccines have greatly diminished their prevalence. Whoever made that quote is out of their damn mind.

I’m with you on this. I’m not a big fan of doctors, but the few times something went wrong, they were right. I think the problem comes from the belief that when you go to the doctor you need a treatment that the doctors don’t want to give you. But that hasn’t been the case since the 1960s and 1970s. Now, most people are best off not seeking more treatments than is necessary. I know of too many instances of people with minimal problems insisting on harmful excessive treatments that literally injure them. Most of the main medical beliefs about sugar, fat, salt and cholesterol are wrong. Flat out wrong. The same is true for blood pressure and cholesterol medications. Excercise and nutrition are ignored by too many people who are too lazy to take care of themselves. And that, in my opinion, is self injury.

As far as vaccines go, they are so rediculously safe and so unlikely to injure people, those arguing against them are fools. For the big ones, measles, mumps, rubella, it’s a no brainer. The ones like the flu shot are a waste. The flu shot is rarely effective and DOES make people sick. I got one once, and got a cold right afterwards, I rarely get sick (like once every 10 years or less) so I’ll never get another flu shot. Not vaccinating kids is just wrong.

Source no.1 shows that Dr. Alan Greenberg is no fraud,but a legit physician,and source no.2 shows that Dr. Greenberg really did say that

As for the vaccines,I think that this link here is enough: https://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/six-reasons-to-say-no-to-vaccination/ but if you need more,feel free to tell me.Or you can do a little bit of research yourself,of course

Thank you for providing sources. I checked them out.

The first link says he's a doctor that also practices naturopathy, which is pseudoscientific garbage. So even if he has a medical degree, that doesn't automatically mean what he says is reliable.

The second link is simply the same quote you posted above.

The third link also looks like garbage. It makes absurd claims that I don't believe the author has shown to be true.

Naturopathy [ney-chuh-rop-uh-thee] /noun/ - "A system or method of treating disease that employs no surgery or synthetic drugs but uses special diets, herbs, vitamins, massage, etc., to assist the natural healing processes."

As we can see,naturopathy is all about nature(like the name itself says).And as much as I love science,it ain't got shit on nature.Herbs are almost always superior to pharmaceutical drugs(http://www.creationsmagazine.com/articles/C168/Cook.html one of many places where you can reach the same conclusion)

As for the link about the vaccines,I was really hoping that the first point would settle the case(Pharmaceutical Companies Can Never Be Trusted),because that is,by far,the greatest truth when it comes to modern medicine/pharmacy! Just the fact that Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has banned cannabis oil and vitamin B-17,even though both destroy cancer cells,should tell you something.Also,if you want a site with an objective and science-based look at vaccines,try this one: http://vaccinepapers.org/about/

And final point,if the drugs and vaccination really are effective,how is it that just in the USA,people spend 200 billion dollars on pharmaceutical drugs? I mean,drugs aren't really that expensive,and diseases aren't something you get often,so why is the number so big?I'll tell you why:because drugs are designed only to treat symptoms,and not actually cure the disease,so when the symptoms come back,people will go and buy some more medication,and the cycle repeats,and this generates so much money to the Pharmaceutical Industry! By far,the biggest cash-cow of the Pharmaceutical Industry is cancer.Jack_henoff posted a comment somewhere down the thread that shows that more than half a million people die from cancer each year in the US.And I bet you that every one of them earned a whole lot of money to the Pharmaceutical Industry who didn't even try to cure them(because if they wanted to cure them,they'd use cannabis oil vitamin B-17)!

"And as much as I love science,it ain't got shit on nature.Herbs are almost always superior to pharmaceutical drugs."

Have herbs gone through rigorous scientific tests and clinical trials to determine their efficacy?

"Pharmaceutical Companies Can Never Be Trusted"

Like...ever? Because that's an extremely broad statement to make. Have pharmaceutical companies done illegal and unethical things? Yes. Does that mean they can never, ever be trusted, even when their products actually work? I don't think so.

"Just the fact that Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has banned cannabis oil and vitamin B-17,even though both destroy cancer cells,should tell you something."

It tells me that those things either don't do what their proponents say they do, or further research is needed to determine how effective they really are. There have not been rigorous clinical tests on humans to verify those claims.

"...drugs are designed only to treat symptoms,and not actually cure the disease..."

Not every disease has a cure. Sometimes all you can do is keep it under control, but it never fully goes away or gets cured. I speak from personal experience. I have ulcerative colitis. There is no cure for it. But thanks to medication, I have it very well under control, to the point that it doesn't adversely affect my life the way it did before I was put on medication.

"And I bet you that every one of them earned a whole lot of money to the Pharmaceutical Industry who didn't even try to cure them"

Pharmaceutical companies make pharmaceuticals. They don't try to cure diseases. That's the job of doctors and medical researchers.

"because if they wanted to cure them,they'd use cannabis oil vitamin B-17)!"

Despite the fact that no research has actually confirmed that claim. People are always coming along and saying this or that natural remedy or herb or mineral will cure cancer, and it's always bunk. They have no verified medical research or testing which backs up their claims.

...I have been blogging about the need for a nation-wide audit of all health boards in Canada for some time now. Is is desperately needed--and in need of far greater scrutiny. For the last 17 years at least, our system has gone downhill because now each health board has head offices with overpaid CEO's and office executives, nurses are badly overworked and support staff crews have been contracted out, or privatized. There are many, many reasons for a thinking person to ask where are all those billions of dollars of taxpayer money are actually going.

106,000 deaths from adverse drug reactions? How is that the fault of the medical community? They can't know how every single patient will respond to every single medicine before they take it.

I would think that the number is even higher than this because it doesn’t even count the opioid crisis deaths from doctors that prescribe zillions of pills for a quick buck.

Their doctors. Very few of them care a bit about anything. Then we got millions of morons who don’t realize doctors are in the business of milking patients. They could care less if patients die—that’s what makes them doctors!!! You get a few stories like Michael Jackson and Prince, but this stuff is the norm. The streets are flooded with drugs sold by crooked doctors. Hospitals are scam buildings. You have no idea whether that person in the robe knows anything when you show up there. Most of the time they have no clue and just make stuff up that people believe because they see someone in a robe in the hospital.

No, doctors are in the business of saving lives.

Guns are in the business of killing.

Your logic is confused, hypocritical, and silly.

Don't like doctors? The don't go to their business, that simple.

No worries, no danger of mass syringe shooter doctors rat tat tatting up where you are with blowdart guns and forcing you to die from medicine.

Boycott on. That simple.

You're welcome.

Did you research your claims against Snopes, or did you base Snopes' inaccuracies on feelings?
reply
5 ups, 1 reply
Research. The numbers are accurate. Snopes doesn’t even address drug reactions in their explantation about how this is inaccurate. The biggest problem is that there is no standard for recording these numbers. And most people that die from malpractice settle their cases before a decision finds a “medical error.”
reply

1. No, you did NOT research the numbers.
They are NOT accurate.
Your material is bogus.

The top chart I posted here are CDC numbers, which they themsleves admit are undercounted due to the type of date they admit in tabulation.

Others in the c.250,000 - 251,000 range are the average that even a quick look would turn up whether in articles or diagrams.

Note that none that I referenced in the cute pics here are Snopes.

2. Whatever the numbers, 250,000 or the bogus triple, what's your point?

Clearly, our whole system is lacking appropriate checks and balances. The pharmaceutical industry DOES have too much power. Academia HAS been compromised and doctors do not always have all the facts when it comes to health. Just ask them questions about nutrition. I am grateful for websites that present alternative information, even if one must study for accuracy. The whole point eludes to the great need for study by everyone, not simply divided groups. The beat goes on...while we argue with each other, those with less than honorable agendas manipulate toward their goals behind the scenes. Thank you for reading.

Can comment on the accuracy of Snopes but you are comparing ill people who go to a hospital and some of them die, (whoppi what a surprise) with people getting shot.

Yeah the website is silly. But these numbers have been cited by more reputable sources. Just not recently because everyone’s gone anti medical malpractice lawsuit, so guns get the headlines and patients die quietly. They should #MeToo malpractice deaths, because it is waaaay more common than sex crimes. Once you look at the screenshot from Wikipedia you should realize all these Hollywood types should be talking about how dangerous doctors are.......

"because everyone’s gone anti medical malpractice lawsuit"

In America? Not ingesting one too many Oxy's with that bowl of flakes.

Suing of any kind - ESPECIALLY for medical malpractice - is through the roof in the US, to the point that the addiction to it in the America is a joke in other countries. It's actually one of the main drivers in continually rising medical costs, already far more expensive than other countries per patient, doctor, treatment, meds, insurance, etc.

The MeToo Movement is about sexual abuse.

Hollywood types regularly promote testing an treatment for breast, lung, and colon cancer, heart disease, AIDS, and whatever disease of the week pops up on the Boulevard.

Meanwhile, preventable childhood diseases previously almost unknown in incidence for decades have seen alarming increases as many parents refuse to get their kids vaccinated because of celeb bogus propaganda.

And if anyone need's Kanye Kardashain and Harrison Ford to tell them what to do, let them clear themselves out the gene pool. Humans have been getting more stupid over the last 8000 years anyways, as well as physically weaker. Culling the herd via suicidal means is an ace long term prescription.

As a person who is finishing suffering from a adverse drug reaction.
I personally have found that most doctors aren't much better than drug pushers. Give you a drug that will make you feel better and keep you out of their office. And being a person who doesn't react to most medication well. I can say that you can tell your doctor that you have problems with medication as much as you want. But until the doctor sees the negative health effects it has on you, they don't really pay attention. I'd be sure that is a contributing factor to the number of deaths from prescription medication.
Only upvotes! :)
