Cholesterol and Greed

Unfortunately for many, money makes the world go around. Truth, safety and efficacy  certainly take second fiddle to the almighty dollar.

The Estrogen Cow

Understanding the essence of the medical-pharmaceutical establishment, I was taken by

surprise at how swiftly and how easily the establishment turned on one of its own sacred

cows — estrogen.

You know the story of estrogen: for years it was touted as a protector of women against

cancer, against aging, against cardiovascular disease, and against osteoporosis.

The drug companies have been fighting tooth and nail for decades to refute and suppress

all the research that proves that estrogen actually causes the very conditions it is supposed

to prevent.

Now, so very suddenly, the establishment freely admits the harmful effects of estrogen.

Just last July, no less than the Journal of the American Association announced the

discontinuation of a long term research study on estrogen when it became undeniable that

the women in this study developed an increased risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer.

It’s not surprising that they discontinued the study when the results were opposite the

researcher’s intended findings, but what is noteworthy is that instead of hushing it up,

they actually published it for all the world to see.

Now, as an extension of that admission of estrogen danger, the Food and Drug

Administration is actually requiring labels on all hormone replacement therapy products

warning of the risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer.

What is going on here?

I had always assumed that the pharmaceutical industry would fight to the death to protect

its estrogen-related profits.

What I think is happening is that the drug companies have decided to burn this candle

from both ends.

The estrogen bandwagon has so much momentum, (with so many doctors conditioned to

prescribe estrogen to every woman who experiences her first hot flash or who has any

concerns about osteoporosis) that nothing will push this gravy train off course for years

and years to come.

Another good example to illustrate how people fall for propaganda, and how drug

companies change their tune for profit, is the cholesterol farce.
