 Editor’s note December 2022


“Has Big Pharma hijacked evidence-based medicine?”

I’ve unashamedly hijacked the title of a sell-out event staged by the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners in London last month featuring consultant cardiologist – and possibly the bravest doctor in the UK – Dr Aseem Malhotra.

IHCAN readers know only too well what we think about evidence-based medicine (EBM). To quote the Chinese emperor asked what he thought of Western civilisation: “It would be a good idea”.

As I’ve said here before, the main problem with EBM is that the evidence itself is often so unreliable, the science so bad – if not downright fraudulent – the review process so nonsensical and the medical journals so corrupt, that even the former editors of the world’s most prestigious journals – think New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet – have given up on it.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines”, says Marcia Angell, 20 years editor of the NEJM…

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue”, says Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet. (The problem is we don’t know which half.)

What Dr Malhotra makes clear in a stunning presentation is that not only has Big Pharma indeed hijacked EBM – in part due to its increasing control of what the journals publish (Dr Horton once described this as “flagrant conflicts of interest”) – but that in doing so is destroying the NHS.

And then there’s COVID.

Malhotra, as a consultant cardiologist, knows a heart problem when he sees one. And he is seeing hordes of them thanks to the mNRA vaccine. In his presentation, he revealed Big Pharma’s control of the hugely profitable vaccine market, enabling whistle-blowers’ warnings about fudged safety testing to be ignored in favour of the hypnotic “safe and effective” mantra.

Data that had to be crowbarred out of the CDC with legal action has recently revealed hundreds of thousands having to seek urgent medical care after receiving a COVID shot.

“This is the greatest miscarriage of medical science, damage to population health, attack
on democracy and erosion of trust in public
health that we will witness in our lifetime”, says Malhotra. “The root cause? The psychopathic
entity that is Big Pharma”.

He has joined others in calling for use of the mRNA vaccine to be suspended immediately, pending INDEPENDENT analysis of the raw data. “We have pulled vaccines in the past for much less, we have got the highest-level quality of data…this vaccine needs to be suspended completely”.

Now about your “leaky gums”…

It’s time to start asking clients about the health of their teeth and gums. And if they can’t remember the last time they had a dental check-up, then consider holding off on your primary intervention until they’ve had one.

Functional medicine practitioner Pete Williams elaborates on this line of thnking in this issue (page 8). Going on the available statistics, Pete reckons that as many as 50% of his clients may be struggling with (usually undiagnosed) gum disease.

How serious is this? Well, exactly a year ago, BMJ Open published the results from “largest epidemiological study exploring the health outcomes of periodontal disease using primary care records” ever staged. When you consider that periodointal disease, to give it its posh name, ALWAYS means chronic inflammation, maybe the results aren’t too surprising. The researchers have confirmed that “leaky gums” are associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular, cardiometabolic and autoimmune diseases. And in a research first – with mental ill-health. Read what Pete has to say and then check out the video of his IHCAN conference presentation.

We’re always fully referenced

We don’t put a big emphasis on being “evidence based” in the conventional sense, mainly because the bulk of the evidence used in meta analyses and systematic reviews and to produce “guidelines” is not to be trusted. As Prof Richard David Feinman puts it, the meta-analysis is the “most dangerous” activity plaguing modern medical literature. And RCTs are of no use in assessing complex conditions that we address with multiple interventions – such as Dr Dale Bredesen’s Alzheimer’s protocol. Likewise, we highly value the hard-won clinical experience of multiple practitioners accumulated over the years and handed down over generations of evolving natural medicine practice. That said, we do put a lot of effort into referencing our features. References are online to save space, available within our members area.
