I submitted an article detailing the effectiveness of St. John's Wort with West Nile Virus to a PR website where reporters research information for broadcast/publication. We got almost 88,000 hits, but no one wanted to disseminate the information. I spoke to one reporter with a newspaper in the Inland Empire. We're still waiting to see if she will publish anything. Whole Life Times was also possibly interested. When my publicist called NBC, the response was informative. The call screener was immediately interested. He wanted to know what the substance was, where he could obtain it, and how much he should take. However, the next person up the chain, the actual producer for all their medical programming (who also was interested and who takes herbs herself), told her that she was sorry, but Dr. Bruce Hensel, the medical director, wouldn't let anything on the air that wasn't AMA approved.
You can draw your own conclusions. Mine is that there are some people who would rather see others die than put out information that is not flattering to the medical community. And, this ties right in the next item I'd like to share.
In March of this year, Dr. Gary Null published an article entitled "Death by Medicine" on his web site regarding life extension. As pointed out in the introduction, the authors note: "Never before have the complete statistics on the multiple causes of iatrogenesis been combined in one paper. Medical science amasses tens of thousands of papers annually - each on a tiny fragment of the whole picture. … Each specialty, each division of medicine keeps their own records and data on morbidity and mortality like pieces of a puzzle. But the numbers and statistics were always hiding in plain sight. We have now completed the painstaking work of reviewing thousands of studies. Finally putting the puzzle together, we came up with some disturbing answers."
