What ticks me off the most is that the people think the FDA
is on their side. The problem is that what they do and what the “tricks” think
they do are like night and day.
We are lead to believe that the need for drugs and surgery are
touted as the solution for the prevention and healing of illness and disease. If
so, why are natural cures suppressed and hidden from the public by who?
First, not only the companies that sell drugs, but also the
ones that do the research and development of the drugs. In the health-care
industry the are companies that supply syringes, gauze, medical tape, plastic
bottles, tubing, tongue depressors and way more. Would
you believe that there are 10,000 pieces of pharmaceutical equipment that are
used and have to be resupplied forever and the profits never end?
Then, we have the food companies that get involved directly
or indirectly with big pHarma because the owners, officers and directors become
stock holders. And what about the trade associations that are there to promote
disease so they can obtain additional funding to protect their members, which
are the drug companies and the doctors?
You have to understand that all these associations are very
powerful and are there to represent their members, which are the companies,
corporations and the people raking in the bucks. Bear in mind that the American Medical
Association could care less about the consumer and only have an interest in
what benefits their members and in keeping their high paying jobs.
The charities and foundations are no different because power
and prestige are the keys. If a foundation focused on curing a disease, how
long would it take for pimps and hookers to loose their jobs and benefits? Do
you remember the Jerry Lewis Telethon that raised over $1 billion for muscular
dystrophy. So, how come more people today have muscular dystrophy than ever
You do know what a lobbyist does? They solicit politicians
to pass bills that go in one direction. To bring in money to pretend to cure
diseases and to benefit them financially along with the politicians.
What about the government agencies? We have the FDA (Fraud and
Drug Administration), the FTA (Federal Treachery Association), and the USDA (US
Department of A**holes), for openers.
Do they care about the people? NO! Back in the 90’s in
California there was a slaughter house upwind of an almond orchard that had a run-off
that contaminated the almond orchard. Rather than put restrictions on the
slaughter house the USDA said that all almonds produced in California had to be
irradiated. Nothing like a government of, for and by the people!
Let’s put big pHarma in it true perspective. First of all,
they are all publically traded companies whose true goal is increase profits. And
how do they do that? Sell more drugs! To sell more drugs you would have to
always keep people sick and not have anyone compete against them.
Question: Why do the drug companies give billions to the
medical schools? So that their drugs can be put in the text book curriculum
teaching the would-be doctor how to prescribe certain drugs, which guarantees
sales of those drugs by big pHarma.
There are two basics taught in medical schools: how to
prescribe drugs and how to eliminate parts of a person’s anatomy, aka surgery! When
they graduate and are finally “in practice”, big pHarma gives the doctors
all-expense paid trips to “medical conferences” world-wide. These “medical
conferences” are basically sales presentations by big pHarma, teaching the
doctor about drugs, how to prescribe them, and giving kickbacks aka “financial
incentives” to prescribe those drugs. Oh yeah, the “experts” at the “medical conferences”
are compensated by big pHarma.
The short version: the drug dealers are trained in the
medical schools to prescribe drugs and are given incentives and additional
training throughout their medical careers directly by the drug industry to
prescribe more drugs!
For a drug company to get a drug patented and approved by
the FDA, it costs $800 million to $1.8 trillion. Once the drug is approved and the patent
granted, it becomes the only company that can sell the drug and provides an
automatic billion dollars in the bank.
Guess what? Natural cures cannot be patented because there are no large
profits made from selling a natural cure. There is a “law” from the FDA. “Only
a patented drug can cure, prevent, or treat a disease.
Big pHarma knows that the drugs that people are taking are
causing or contributing to the increases in cancer, heart disease, diabetes,
and way more, and yet it’s kept a secret. Why? “Gimmie da money, honey”!
Think about all the
drugs that were “proven” to be totally “safe and effective” and approved by the
FDA and then years later taken off the market and banned because they became so
dangerous and caused all types of severe medical conditions, including bye bye
forever! And yet, you turn on your TV and virtually ever commercial is about a
So, why are more and more things classified as a “disease”?
Because the FDA has the final word on what is a “disease.” If a natural product
appears and heals what the drug heals, that product can be confiscated by the
FDA and the business shut down.
Years ago, you got heartburn. Now you have Acid Reflux Disease
and are prescribed a drug. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Question: How come the FDA, the MDs and the
drug industry never tell anyone that the human form is specifically and
anatomically designed to eat plant-based foods, which leave the body in three
days at the most while flesh foods leave the body in seven days allowing all
the poisons and contaminants to pollute the body for a week and creating
All the creatures that eat flesh have short and virtually
straight digestive tracts. The digestive tract of the human is very convoluted.
That being the cause, it’s ok for muscles and poisons to sit there for seven
days? Just because the tongue has taken control of the intelligence doesn’t
make it OK!
Why will you never hear any of this via the media? Because
most of the money received by the media comes from the pharmaceutical industry
and the food industry. So, what that means is that you are virtually being lied
to by the media because the media is simply an extension of their sponsors and
guess who else gets involved?
The FDA targets natural remedies one at a time. First, you get warned that the natural
remedies never get properly tested, are potentially dangerous and should not be
All this raises a question: How can America, that presents
itself as a country of free speech, free expression, freedom of choice, freedom
of information and free enterprise be restricted to these freedoms when it
relates to our health and medical choices?
If it goes against
big pHarma, the medical profession and big food, it is totally restricted!
Reality: There are natural, inexpensive, safe cures for
virtually every disease. But, big pHarma, big food, the associations and the
government agencies all have a financial incentive to keep people sick. Why?
There are billions of dollars in profits to keep people sick
and there are billions of dollars in profits as long as people keep taking Rx
drugs. Money rules!
It’s time to make changes!
When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.
Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.
After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.
Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.
I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.
So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".
Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.
I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.
But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.
The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.
But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.
So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.
Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.
I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.
Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.
A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.
In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.
My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.
I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.
Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.
The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.
Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
