Interviewer: Can you talk about how much controlover allopathic medicine the pharmaceutical companies actually have?
Robert Scott Bell: Well, yeah, going back 100years now, it's a total control. I mean, they basically control the curricula.They pay for and support, by grants or otherwise, a lot of what goes on in themedical schools. Those to be doctors, the students there, are being visited bydrug reps, sometimes taught by drug reps.
Robert Scott Bell: Much like many of thesurgical, you wouldn't believe it, it's so crazy. Whether it be a Johnson andJohnson, they'll send in a sales rep to show doctors how to use their productin surgery. You know, these are the kind of things that happen. You don'trealize how entrenched they are.
And of course, the idea of Obamacare, which ispatently offensive. Now, if it were McCaincare, same thing. It would bepatently offensive, this idea that the government could mandate the purchase ofthis so-called medical insurance which would only cover drugs, drugs, and moredrugs. For which many Americans are waking and saying, "I don't want moredrugs. We have too many. Let's roll that back." But that came to beingbecause of the medical monopoly established in the 20th century, which mademedicine cost prohibitive. Prices don't go down in a monopoly.
Robert Scott Bell: They don't. I mean, but youalso have . . . the innovation goes away. In an monopoly, who needs toinnovate? You've got your market.
Robert Scott Bell: It's mandated by governmentby the force of a gun. And so there's no innovation to be efficient. And theytalk about waste and fraud. I mean, that's only one aspect of it.
And so all of these things led to the placewhere people couldn't afford genuine insurance. In fact, governmentmandated that you couldn't offer insurance unless it covered everything,pregnancy included.
Robert Scott Bell: So you couldn't get a policythat was truly for catastrophic care. That was what really insurance was about.Unexpected catastrophe.
Robert Scott Bell: And so it was now costprohibitive to even get something that no longer existed. And then they blamethe evil Republican. You know, play the game
Robert Scott Bell: And the fact is, it was allof the above that created the scenario where medicine was completelyunaffordable and all toxic, and that alternatives were suppressed. There was nofirst amendment to discuss what natural supplements could do, homeopothy orotherwise. And at that point, half the American people begged for, "Oh thegovernment has to intervene, because the market didn't work." But itwasn't the market. There hasn't been a free market in healing and medicine for60 years. And it's gotten worse and worse and worse.
You know, again, I come back to the one personrunning for president. You know, I don't mean to get political, but the realityis, in human terms, the one guy who's saying, "Why not allow all healersto set up a shingle and heal, provide the healing?"
Robert Scott Bell: They can't lie to you aboutwhat they are, or do. They have to be truthful, but they don't have to be amedical doctor. Why do we even have to license doctors? Does that limitcompetition? Yes
Robert Scott Bell: Yes. Not only that, itprotects the bad doctors from the people, rather than the people from the baddoctors.
Allow the free market to work, and you'll findthat medical costs go down. Access to healing is incredibly universal without amandate. And there are people like me, or even doctor Paul, who would give awaytheir services for free because they can. That they're violating now, a law.You can't give that away. You're not allowed to do that. Only the governmentcan provide that.
So charity would come back into play, and we cangenuinely help people that are in need. And even the poor people largelywould be able to afford medical care, because it would only be used in extremecircumstances, as opposed to where it is now under the monopoly system. Sothere's a lot of history that needs to be understood, and I'm glad you broughtup the Flexon report, because it was 100 years in the making . . . theObamacare.
Who's to blame and how can it be fixed? Radio host and homeopathic practitioner Robert Scott Bell tackles these issues and talks about the influence pharmaceutical companies have over the system and in particular, the medical schools.
