The Cancer Within Modern Medicine Part 1 & 2
The Cancer Within Modern Medicine Part 1 & 2 By The Sharp Edge for Corey’s Digs
The turn of the 20th century promised to offer cures for every ailment with patented and colorfully packaged pills. Yet here we are. What happened? We were duped. More importantly, so were all of the well-meaning doctors, nurses, medical technicians, and scientists. There is a cancer within what we now know of as modern medicine – eating away at the very heart of its original design. Rather than saving and healing humanity, this cancer seeks to destroy us from within.
While many medical discoveries and innovations over the past century have undoubtedly saved lives, there is a small group of shadowy elites scattered throughout the world who have been quietly plotting to control the world population by infiltrating and shaping every aspect of modern medicine for the purposes of imposing their own agendas. No institution is immune. Medical schools, foundations, organizations, companies and government programs all have succumbed to this sickness. In order to surgically remove the cancer within modern medicine, we must first dissect and diagnose it. This report seeks to analyze the agendas, as well as the notable individuals, families, institutions, organizations, foundations and government programs involved in shaping the world of medicine since the turn of the 20th century.

Part 1: A Pill for Every Ill
In 1878, John D. Rockefeller controlled 90% of all oil refineries in the U.S. Then in 1897, a German chemist by the name of Felix Hoffman invented aspirin. With this discovery, a new frontier in medicine began with the use of petrochemicals in many medicines including aspirin, penicillin, and later for cancer-fighting drugs. The tycoon who had cornered the oil market in the U.S. sought to expand his empire with the exploitation of petrochemicals in this whole new world of medicine. At the time, homeopathic medicine was commonly practiced among doctors in the U.S. In order to dominate the emerging market of pharmaceuticals, Rockefeller would have to completely change the paradigm. This was no small feat.
First, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research was established by close friend and advisor, Frederick Taylor Gates, in 1901. Gates was inspired and influenced by the “Principles and Practice of Medicine” written by renowned physician and eugenicist, Sir William Osler, who attended the First International Eugenics Congress in 1912. Among the University’s alumni, notable figures such as Cornelius P. Rhoads (one of the early pioneers of chemotherapy) emerged, and 36 Nobel Prize laureates have been associated with the school. Their board of trustees has included names like Jeffrey Epstein, Maurice Greenberg, and Nancy Kissinger.
Next, Rockefeller set up the Rockefeller Foundation, which was originally conceived in 1904, and later established in 1913 by founders J.D. Rockefeller, his son, and his advisor Frederick Taylor Gates. In 1910, J.D. Rockefeller and a handful of others joined in a project to embark on this new frontier of the medical industry. They selected Abraham Flexner, backed by the Carnegie Foundation, to travel the country gathering evidence for a report on the state of medical colleges and hospitals.
The result of this venture was known as the Flexner Report, which was nothing short of a launching point for the world of modern medicine which we know today. The Flexner report was a tool used by Rockefeller to justify the modernization, streamlining, homogenization, and consolidation of medical schools and hospitals. Many schools and hospitals closed their doors as a result. Homeopathic medicine was demonized and mocked, while some doctors were even jailed.
The dawn of a new era began – the age of a ‘pill for every ill’. With new standards set in place by Rockefeller through the General Education Board in 1902, and the Flexner Report of 1910, the remaining medical schools and hospitals were incentivized to teach and research in specific areas in order to receive a stake of more than $100 million in Rockefeller Foundation grants. Research was driven in the area of finding synthetic alternativesto the organic plant-based treatments for illness, which homeopathic doctors had used in years past. Rockefeller found the synthetic drug alternative to be of benefit, as the newly discovered drugs could be patented, packaged and sold by any of the 68 subsidiaries within the Rockefeller drug empire.
In the mid 1920s, pharmaceutical companies were merely a peripheral branch of the chemical and cosmetics industries, but by 1928, the booming business climbed to the 16th most profitable industry in the U.S. After the discovery of penicillin in 1938, which led to government contracts with various drug companies to manufacture the drug in order to help the war effort, drug companies emerged post World War II with new capital to invest in the research and development of yet more drugs. The pharmaceutical industry exploded. By 1945, just one of Rockefeller’s subsidiaries, Squibb, reported profits of 576%, and the Rockefeller drug empire as a whole reported profits of 54% by 1961.
Over time, the smaller drug companies merged with larger ones, and from the second half of the 20th century to present day, increased consolidation of drug companies has led to the emergence of what we know of as big pharma. With billions in profits, the big pharma lobby has influenced lawmakers and policy alike to ensure its stronghold in the medical industry. Drug advertisements over the past 20 years have tripled to at least $6 billion per year as big pharma has found that they work.
Researchers are sounding the alarm that Americans are incredibly over-medicated, with as much as 55% of all Americans taking prescription drugs regularly – 4 on average, and an estimated $200 billion per year spent in the U.S. on unnecessary and improper use of medication (including the drugs themselves and related medical complication costs as a result). The overuse of pharmaceuticals has reached epidemic proportions, with the prescriptions of multiple medications to individual patients increasing by 200% over the past two decades. It is safe to say that Rockefeller’s vision of a ‘pill for every ill’ in America has been realized.
