In researching this story that you are about to read, I came across a startling statistic. A truth-seeker branded as a conspiracy theorist and all-around kook stated in a public conference that about half of all Americans will contract cancer. The immediate reaction is that such statistics have to be incredibly flawed.
For instance, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. However, this prevalent affliction is responsible for 25% of deaths. That 50% of all Americans will be diagnosed with cancer seems quite a stretch. Yet according to the National Cancer Institute, almost 40% of Americans will indeed get cancer, based on statistics from 2010 to 2012.
Surely, the updated statistics would reveal a higher diagnosis rate, indicating that my conspiracy theorist source isn’t all that crazy. More importantly, we have more than enough reasonable suspicion to believe Big Pharma and the entire pharmaceutical industry are deliberately hiding the truth about cancer research, and natural cancer cures, such as cannabis.
Consider that according to “official data,” the cannabis industry rakes in over $100 billion annually. I can almost assure you that the figure is much higher. Very little, if any, incentive exists to reveal the real truth, since it would cause people to question the profit motive of Big Pharma.
As with any revenue-generating operation, you simply have to follow the money. The pharmaceutical industry not only has a vested interest in controlling what information gets out, it has a greater incentivize in preventing access to alternative medicines, such as cannabis.
The number of promising developments using cannabis and other herbal materials have been documented, but silenced. In the age of Google where almost anything can be found, it’s incredibly difficult to get the real scoop on cannabis and its effectiveness in cancer treatments.
Last year, one of my YouTube videos blasting Big Pharma and the pharmaceutical industry as a whole was demonetized by Google (which owns YouTube) censors. Despite the fact that my YouTube channel rarely reaches out to more than a few hundred people, Google and its Big Pharma sponsors felt compelled to silence me.
It then hit me – people who are desperately searching for alternative cancer treatments, such as cannabis and alkaline-producing foods, are unlikely to see that information. Even if they do, Google will ensure that these folks are first bombarded with Big Pharma websites that claim cannabis “appears promising,” but that “more research needs to be done.”
Of course it does! We’ve been dealing with cancer for several decades, and more research – and more money – is always required. But perhaps the scary part is that relatively few people are waking up to the fraud that is the pharmaceutical industry.
