(NaturalNews) It seems absurd in this Information Age to believe that some doctors today will intentionally mislead patients about their diagnosis and prognosis in order to turn a dollar, but unfortunately that is true.
As reported by Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News, “It happens more often than you can imagine, but more Doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons.”
She noted further that there is a built-in incentive for physicians to mislead patients when the treatment of cancer has in essence been transformed into an industry in and of itself. Also, as our own Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has reported often, the “business” of treating illness in general is profitable and, until it is not, disease will endure.
Elizabeth agrees, noting that there is far less money in preventing disease than there is in treating it.
Misrepresenting and misusing data
“Take Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan who admitted in court one year ago to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing healthy people with cancer,” she wrote, adding:
Fata also admitted to giving them chemotherapy drugs for the purpose of making a profit. Were his patients shocked? You bet they were. Who would ever suspect a Doctor of faking a diagnosis to collect money. It’s unconscionable. Yet it happens with cancer and almost every disease that medical doctors can generate income through kickbacks and commissions based on the volume of patients treated with specific pharmaceuticals. Like anything people are used as a [commodity].
“Many of these unscrupulous Physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands–a very dangerous combination when money is involved,” said Dr. Sayed Mohammed, a retired oncologist who admits seeing the trend more than a decade ago, as quoted by Elizabeth.
The physician was charged with operating a $35 million Medicare fraud scheme – taxpayer money – that involved billing the government for medically unnecessary hematology and oncology procedures. Federal prosecutors said Fata ran his scheme from 2009 until just recently, when he was caught, through his medical businesses including Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers.
“I knew that it was medically unnecessary,” Fata said in court.
Some of these same medical scam artists misrepresent statistics and misuse data in order to “justify” medical treatments and testing that otherwise would not be necessary or even indicated. Prostate cancer is one such scam.
There is a better, safer and less expensive answer
“More than 90% of Doctors who encourage cancer treatment for prostate cancer will generate a commission from each treatment the patient receives,” Elizabeth wrote. “It proves risky and often deadly in the long run for most people who don’t understand how to take care of their health and are persuaded by false statistics.”
In fact, there have been scores of large studies regarding prostate cancer where researchers have found that, in nearly 97% of cases, this form of cancer either never spreads beyond the gland or the patient dies from something else long before there is evidence of spread. In the bulk of cases where the disease does spread beyond the gland, it has done so aggressively and surgery is no longer even an option (let alone caustic radiation therapy or poisonous chemotherapy).
The good news is that there are better, more effective alternatives for “traditional” cancer treatments, and they are all discussed, in great detail, in the Truth About Cancer Summit.
“The powerful cancer documentary series the mainstream media refused to air is about to play online,” the series website reads. “You’ll discover the most effective ways to prevent and beat cancer you won’t see elsewhere. … see the entire 9-part series — for free — beginning April 12th.”
