« Morphine in the Brain: Go For It, or Not? |

This is the first one of these I've had since I started blogging. It's in response to this recent post, and I thought I'd celebrate by sharing it with everyone:
"You are a shameful individual Mr. Lowe - to make a living in the pharmaceutical industry, whether past or present and then turn around and cast Dr. Rath, who presented clear evidence that his formulations work not only with AIDS but also cancer, as some greedy vitamin pusher when contrasted with the pharmaceutical industry which makes profits over and above 20,000 times the cost of drugs is beyond absurd - it is a baseless slander scheme. You guys may believe you can hide the truth from people, and maybe you might, God will have done what God sees fit to allow, but the day will come when you and your cohorts will have to answer for your lies, deceptions and greed-driven undermining of the health and welfare of many nations - on that Day justice will be served."
Dr. Rath's clinical trials were conducted where, exactly? By whom? With what sorts of controls and in what patient population? And reached what sort of statistical significance against which endpoints? The governments of Switzerland, England, and South Africa disagree with him for what reasons?
Your figure of "20,000 times the cost of drugs" comes from where? Arrived at by what measure? If a drug makes ten billion dollars of profit over its patented lifespan (a mighty fine number, one that most never reach), does that mean, if we divide it out, that the "cost" of that drug was. . .$500,000? On whose planet?
And Dr. Rath's profit margins are. . .what, exactly? The money for his international operation and his high-profile advertisements comes from. . .where?
I'll take my chances with God if and when the time comes, as will Matthias Rath. At least I won't have to explain why I urged thousands of people to forsake the medications that could keep them alive. I can, if I choose to, show my face in South Africa without fear of arrest. Can Dr. Rath?
