A History of Cancer and the Pharmaceutical Monopoly

In 1932, Rockefeller commissioned Dr. Cornelius Rhoads to research cancer.  He flew to Puerto Rico for his studies.  Dr. Rhoads, however, developed a sinister reputation for unethical human experimentation.  In a letter written to his colleague, Rhoads stated “I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8 and transplanting cancer into several more.”  The letter was released to the public, resulting in a scandal.  Rhoads quickly left Puerto Rico and escaped more public scrutiny.  

Interestingly, during World War II Rhoads worked in the United States Army Biological Weapons Division.  His research on mustard gas poisoning inspired the concoction used for chemotherapy treatments.  Rhoads was later featured on the cover of Time Magazine under the title “Cancer Fighter.”

In 1934, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife reported curing 16 patients of cancer.

Rife developed a machine which targeted cancer cells with electromagnetic frequencies.  When he studied bacteriology at John Hopkins University, Dr. Rife observed that viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells have resonance frequencies.  Using this theory, he conducted frequency experiments on 16 terminal cancer patients.  Using his Rife Machine he managed to cure all 16 patients, according to reports.  But why haven’t we heard of him, you might ask.

Despite his groundbreaking work, the American Medical Association mysteriously refused to support the Rife technology.  Instead, a 1939 lawsuit, The Beam Ray Trial, ensued besmirching Rife’s practice.  Ultimately Rife won the suit, but went bankrupt in the process.  His laboratory was also conveniently vandalized, his research was stolen, and machine was destroyed from a break-in not much later.  And incidentally, the multi-million-dollar practice Dr. Burnett’s lab in New Jersey was burned down just as they were attempting to corroborate Rife’s theory, in 1939.

Chemotherapy and radiation treatment is considered excruciating.  In cancer documentary Cut Poison Burn, a doctor describes chemotherapy as poisoning all of the organs.  And many of the cancer patients in the documentary claim that the aim is to bring them as close to death as possible to blast out the cancer, while destroying their health and quality of life in the process.  Cancer treatment is considered a success if the patient outlasts their predicted expiration date, even just by a few weeks.  It is also claimed that chemotherapy causes more tumors.  Interviewee Dr. Julian Whitaker describes American cancer treatment as “perpetuating the failure.”  And widely used cancer fighting drugs such as Tamoxifen have been proven to cause more cancer in patients.  Despite all the research and funding the Cancer Society receives, cancer in Americans has continued to spread and grow amongst millions.

Because the protocol in our “synthetic alternative” American medical model only includes surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, many patients have sought different methods in other countries.  For instance, a region of China which has high levels of the chemical Laetrile—a natural substance found in apricot kernels—has recorded a minuscule number of cancer incidents.  Our President Ronald Reagan was treated for colon cancer using this substance.  Laetrile, however, is not approved by the FDA and therefore cannot be applied to the average citizen.  Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who resides in Texas has developed a method of fighting cancer through neuro-plastons, which act as molecular switches.  Instead of praise, Burzynski faced charges of malpractice and spent years in court, where he was eventually acquitted.  Although he managed to shrink a brain tumor the size of a tennis ball in a four year old boy and save his life, his method is not widely talked about.  

My reader should know that each drug provided by major pharmaceutical companies must first be approved by the Food & Drug Association.  The price to approve a drug through the FDA costs roughly $1.6 billion.  This astounding fee cancels out all small doctors or scientists and lends the spotlight to massive pharmaceutical companies that can afford it.  The FDA manages autonomy over the regulation of our food and drugs with little accountability.  Today pharmaceutical companies lead the way in financial support of American political parties.  And these political parties control the legal system in which our medical system operates by funding the FDA.  Those in the FDA however are not elected officials, and lawyer Jonathon Emord clarifies, “The FDA is not some pristine, beautiful palace where everything is crystal and everyone is spic-and-span.  The only thing that people are allowed to see [is] a big sign and the sign says ‘FDA, we defend the public health.’  And of all the lies that are perpetuated to the American people, that one’s the biggest.”  

Today, cancer is the second leading cause of death in America.  The American Cancer Society estimates that “more than 16.9 million Americans living today have a cancer history.”  Overall, cancer patients pay an average of $5.6 billion for out-of-pocket fees.  In 2019, oncology drugs reached a global market value of nearly $167 billion.  By 2026, cancer drug sales are expected to nearly double their sales to $311.2 billion.

US healthcare ranks number one in cost but last in performance compared with eleven other industrialized nations.
