You read it here first (and actually only here)

Today, I’m thrilled to tell you, is the first official day that What Doctors Don’t Tell You is on the British newsstands as a 100-page magazine.  Next week it will be on sale in most supermarkets in the UK.  

The launch is this magazine is not a birth so much as a coming of age.  Although this marks the start of our publication as a magazine, this title is in its third decade.  

In 1990, my husband Bryan and I first launched a 12-page newsletter from our top bedroom out of a conviction that patients were being left in the dark about the true safety and effectiveness of most standard treatments in modern medicine.

The launch is this magazine is not a birth so much as a coming of age.  Although this marks the start of our publication as a magazine, this title is in its third decade.  

In 1990, my husband Bryan and I first launched a 12-page newsletter from our top bedroom out of a conviction that patients were being left in the dark about the true safety and effectiveness of most standard treatments in modern medicine.

Astonishingly, this is just as true 22 years later. In fact, it’s got far worse.

Two jumbo jets crashing
I want to emphasize that I am not anti-medicine.  If a building falls on me tomorrow I want the best of jazzy, gee-whizz equipment to glue me back together again. In life-or-death emergencies, high-tech Western medicine is without parallel in the world.

But when it comes to chronic diseases – arthritis, heart disease, even cancer – modern medicine is not doing so well.

Not long ago, the Journal of the American Medicine Association, the official organ of the primary organization representing physicians in America, publicly admitted that illness created by correctly prescribed medication – is the third leading cause of death in America, responsible for a quarter of a million deaths per year.  

To put the magnitude of the problem into perspective, as one study also in JAMA, described it some years ago, the death rate from modern medicine in America alone as the “equivalent of three jumbo-jet crashes every two days.”  

If any airline maintained this appalling track record, there would be public outcry, Parliamentary and congressional investigation and swift adoption of new laws. With comes to modern medicine there is not even the airing of debate.  

Conspiracy of silence
This has largely to do with the fact that modern medicine is not simply a conspiracy of faith but also a conspiracy of silence.  In the medical literature, where many modern treatments are subjected to scrutiny and criticism, doctors carry on a private conversation — by doctors for doctors.

Publicly they will urge you to take your medicine, to have that test or procedure.  In the literature, they sometimes admit their failures and in some instances, just throw up their hands or lament the fact that studies that have been spin-doctored by pharmaceutical industry PR.

Despite the in-your-face title of our publication, I’m also not a doctor basher.  In my view, most doctors are highly competent, extremely hardworking and well intended.

The problem isn’t the carpenter. It’s his tools.

The drug-delivery system
The first problem is the paradigm itself, the idea that the body is a simple machine that can be repaired by drugs. Modern medicine, as my husband is fond of saying, exists mainly as a drug-delivery mechanism.

The second failing is that the tools are being supplied by one of the most profitable businesses in the world, where commerce has entirely replaced any shred of moral concern for getting people well.

We decided to launch our publication as a larger and more accessible magazine as a matter of necessity: there is more need than ever to make that private conversation public.

When we started, our stories got regularly picked up by journalists in the national papers.  Now, there is a thundering silence, as giant conglomerates with their own ties to the drug industry employ establishment doctors or those in the pay of the pharmaceuticals as ‘advisors.’

The private conversation
In a few weeks, the UK is launching a big drive to offer Gardasil vaccine, first launched in America, for all 11-18 years old girls to prevent cervical cancer.  In the standard press, you’ll read about tragic Big Brother star Jade Goody, who died of cervical cancer, and what a good thing it is that we have a way, via this breakthrough vaccine, to prevent this ‘epidemic’.

What you won’t hear or read about in the newspapers or on TV is that Gardasil is one of the most dangerous vaccines now on the American market, according to statistics collected by the US government’s own reporting system.  You won’t read that serious injury related to the ‘cervical-cancer’ vaccines are more than double the number of those reported for any other vaccine in the US.  

You won’t hear about the 100-plus American girls who suddenly, inexplicably died using this vaccine or the thousands more who are virtually bedridden with strange new autoimmune or neurological illnesses.  You won’t hear that it works, at best, 20 per cent of the time, on viruses that may lead to about 5 per cent of cervical cancer.  You won’t hear about one of the most cynical ‘invent the problem so you can sell the solution’ ad campaigns in drug industry history, aimed directly at 13 year olds, and the fact that the Indian government halted a study after an unprecedented outcry when seven village girls died.  

You won’t hear that it’s such a rare disease that you’re only slightly less likely to get hit by an asteroid than to die from cervical cancer.

You won’t read about it most anywhere else—except in What Doctors Don’t Tell You.

In our launch issue, you’ll find out some good news about breast cancer:  that most diagnoses of breast cancer are wrong; that mammograms are an inaccurate con, and there’s a better and safer way to get a direct diagnosis.  You’ll discover what really causes heart disease (and it’s not ‘bad’ cholesterol).  

You’ll find out about what alternative treatments have evidence of success and which don’t for slimming (we try to maintain an even hand about natural treatments too, and that you can prevent such intractable diseases as dementia, prostate problems, trauma, ADHD and eye failure with diet, supplements or other alternative approaches.  

In most cases, you’ll read it here first – and indeed only here.  

Every month, we will present to you the stories that rarely make it into the general press or even the Internet, the information your doctor never shares with you about the treatments on offer, the truth about better and safer alternatives.

We will be your lone and very noisy voice in that conspiracy of silence.

As it has for thousands of others around the world, may the information on our pages contribute to your good health.
