  1. Mainstream medicine defends aggressive cancer treatment

    There's a fool born every minute -- don't be one of them

    There's a reason cowboys in the Old West played poker with their cards in one hand and a six-shooter in the other. Because there's nothing a strong-backed, red-blooded American hates more than a card cheat trying to swindle him out of his hard-earned dough.

    Well, it's time for a group of mainstream, Ivy League frauds to get a dose of 21st century justice, Dr. Douglass-style. Because they're stacking the deck trying to con you into making what could be the worst decision of your life.

    And it's not just your money they're after -- they're out to wreck your health.

    I've been screaming for years that the mainstream is raking in billions by forcing dangerous, costly, and TOTALLY WORTHLESS treatments and tests on cancer patients. But apparently I stand corrected, because a group of University of Pennsylvania scientists is claiming that unnecessary cancer tests are rarer than four-leaf clovers.

    And all they had to do was ask the doctors ordering the tests.

    The doctors were asked if patients ever requested unnecessary tests or treatments. And if so, whether or not the doctors ever caved in and went ahead with those unneeded tests anyway.

    According to the survey of 26 cancer specialists (that's almost 30, so you know this is top-shelf research) at UPenn's Abramson Cancer Center, doctors never ever order needless tests or treatments.

    Those aren't your cataracts acting up, friend -- you read every word of that right. Researchers asked doctors and nurses from their OWN UNIVERSITY to admit to caving in and exposing cancer patients to unneeded tests and treatments. And, low and behold, they weren't exactly chomping at the bit to fess up to their failures.

    Imagine if your employer dispatched a "research team" to ask you whether you ever stole a pen from the company or acted against your customers' best interests. How would you -- or any sane person for that matter -- answer the questions?

    The only difference is that UPenn scientists are asking you to treat their study as serious research. They're presenting it at a major medical convention, and want it to be the last word on unnecessary cancer tests and research.

    Well, there's a fool born every minute, friend -- but don't be one of them. The fact is, study after study shows that the mainstream is regularly ordering up unproven mammograms, harmful radiation, worthless surgeries, and unreliable tests on anyone foolish enough to ask for, or agree, to them.

    That's the unvarnished truth these "scientists" would have learned if they bothered to descend from their ivory towers and survey anyone except their friends and neighbors. So I'm going to borrow a poker term and recommend you do something with this study that even these card cheats will understand.

    Flush.

  2. Free drug samples may double your prescription cost

    Drug company freebies costing you THOUSANDS!

    Before she made her first buck poisoning you and your kids with her disgusting, sugar-laden treats, Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields Cookies had to do something that may surprise you.

    She had to go broke. She had to spend hours on every street corner and shopping mall hallway that would have her giving away free samples. Because if there's one thing Mrs. Fields understood about Americans, it's that we like to get something for nothing.

    Well, it turns out doctors aren't any different. And those billions in free pill samples being slipped into their lab coats by shady drug company shills may not cost your doc a cent -- but they're costing you THOUSANDS!

    A new Stanford study of American dermatologists found that all it takes is one visit... just one packet of free samples... to more than DOUBLE your medical bill.

    Dermatologists who accepted "free" drug company samples wrote their typical patients prescriptions for $465 in drugs. Compare that to a $200 bill from dermatologists who refused to accept the Big Pharma freebies.

    Now after your dermatologist revives you with smelling salts, he'll probably feed you some lousy line about how a couple hundred dollars is a small price to pay when you're getting access to the latest and greatest drugs medical science has to offer.

    Well, you can put that tired old bull straight out to pasture. Because more often than not, all you're getting is some reformulated or "controlled release" version of a generic you could buy for pennies on the dollar. That's right -- you're getting the EXACT SAME DRUG with a new, fancy label.

    Drug companies hand out $16 billion in free samples every year -- and like buying a blue chip stock, it almost always pays off. In fact, the number of dermatologists writing pricey prescriptions after getting free samples increased 50% during the 10 years measured.

    Friend, your best weapons are your brain, your own two eyes, and the old, reliable "sniff test." So the next time some professional pimple popper tries to load you up with hundreds of dollars of prescriptions for a rash or stubborn back acne, put that nose of yours to work.

    More often than not, you'll find something that stinks.
