Whippet, that's pretty close to being correct...read below:
Dr. Herbert Ley, Commissioner of the FDA. (San Francisco Chronicle, 1-2-70)."The thing that bugs me is that people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as different as night and day.?
Forbidden Medicine, A Book by author Ellen Brown
Ellen was Jimmy Keller's lawyer. Her appendix shows you where all the money comes from to fund Cancer hospitals & cancer research.
If you go to her blog, you will see a quote from Gloria Tinney. She is a friend of mine. Jimmy helped her handle her cancer. Her husband Lon was the Project Manager for George Lucas. He bought the rights to Jimmy's story & was pitching it to HBO. It got a greenlight & then was squashed.
I met Jimmy in Baton Rouge in 1994. My gf then was his counselor. He passed away 2 years ago.
A SHORT HISTORY OF CANCER TREATMENT IN AMERICA
In 1910 the Carnegie Endowment funded the the Flexner Report. Medical schools that received Flexner?s approval received Carnegie and Rockefeller funding, while those that failed to gain approval did not. Not surprisingly, the favored paradigm prevailed, with the AMA and drug industry allying itself with Rockefeller and Carnegie, forming a power structure that dominates Western medicine to this day.
James Douglas, who owned the world?s largest copper mine, also owned large pitchblende deposits, from which come radium and uranium. Douglas began experimenting with radium as a cure all, and not long before World War I became the leading ?philanthropist? of Memorial Hospital. His $100,000 donation was attached to the condition that Memorial Hospital would begin using radium treatments for cancer. With the adoption of radium as ?medicine,? the price of radium instantly increased by more than 1000%. Douglas died in 1913, probably from radiation poisoning. By the 1920s, Memorial Hospital?s radium treatments constituted its single largest source of income.
In 1927, John D. Rockefeller and his son began contributing millions of dollars to Memorial Hospital, including money and land to build a new hospital in the 1930s. The same year that the Rockefellers began ?donating? to Memorial Hospital, Standard Oil of New Jersey signed its first agreement with I.G. Farben. Farben was Europe?s largest and most notorious cartel. Farben ran the rubber works at Auschwitz, and invented Sarin, Tabun and the Zyklon B used in the gas chambers.
The Rockefeller/Farben connection influenced Memorial Hospital to begin pursuing chemotherapy research before World War II broke out, with Standard Oil executive Frank Howard sitting on Memorial Hospital?s Research Committee. Before World War II was over, Howard recruited two General Motors executives, Alfred P. Sloan and Charles Kettering, into becoming donors for an ambitious plan to make Memorial Hospital into a research and treatment center. Kettering also bankrolled Kettering Laboratories in Cincinnati, which was notable for producing ?research? that proved the ?benign? properties of industrial substances such as lead, fluoride and aluminum. Sloan was a long-time representative of the Morgan family interests, and the Rockefeller and Morgan interests shared power in running Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
Today more than ever, Wall Street runs Memorial Sloan-Kettering, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering dominates the direction of Western cancer research and treatment. ?Corporate philanthropy? is an oxymoron. Corporations ?give? money with an eye toward the benefits that might accrue in the end. Everything a corporation does is ultimately designed to increase its profits. Earning a profit is about the only reason that corporations exist, but few will ever state it that baldly.
