Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Have We Been Duped?

Here's a posting on a website designed to help neighbors interact with each other, and my reply. Apparently, one of my neighbors can't tell the difference between calling attention to a problem and trying to solve it. I like attacking problems honestly instead of engaging in perpetual mindless nonsense.

    Yes, we have.
    Cut, burn, and poison is the never ending therapy. Spend a fortune on doctors and hospitals and the highest probability result is to die in pain within a few years. Oncologists consider a year of life after treatment a success, but they don't publicize it.
    Give all oncologists cancer treatment in med school.

      Sure it is publicized but why not give a little hope to someone with, say, stage four cancer rather than telling him he will die soon? What are those treatments that are not being used that you would rather be front and center in the treatment of cancer?
      So what would you have recommended for my mother who died at 33 with metastatic breast cancer? My parents tried all kinds of things and ended with surgery, chemo, and radiation. She died after a five year fight in extreme pain.
      Treatments are much better now. My youngest sister died of metastatic breast cancer after a 10 year fight at 41. My next older sister was doing well after a 10 year fight but died in a traffic accident at 50. One of my brothers died at 69 from esophageal cancer due to Barrett Esophagus after a fight of a year. My next to youngest brother is currently being treated for anal-rectal cancer and my youngest brother is being treated for precancerous Barrett esophagus by those hated government doctors at a VA hospital. Just two of us so far without cancer, though my 10 month younger brother, whom I don't talk to due to a identity theft he did on me resulting in my losing a few hours of liberty when arrested because of it, and a long time alcoholic and drug addict, he will outlive all of us. Maybe alcohol and illegal drugs is the way to go for prevention of cancer?

      Your hateful quip about oncologists is disgusting. Why would one want someone treated for a non existent disease unless he is misguided mentally for wanting that.

        "why not give a little hope to someone with, say, stage four cancer rather than telling him he will die soon? "
        Because it's misleading and it is designed to sucker the patient into a treatment that enriches the oncologists and hospital while increasing the cost of healthcare for everyone. It also keeps the patient from pursuing alternative treatment that could improve their chances of recovery.
        Oncologists are parasites who torture people and are not truthful about the chance of successful treatment for their own personal financial gain.

          Please list some of the alternative means for treatment of cancer that are known to work better than the treatments that oncologists have government approval for at present.
          You must believe that some secret illegal treatment exists if only researchers would just get out of the way of those who know the cures for cancers.

            Oh, so you can ask your oncologist to get the AMA funded jack boots to raid their treatment centers?

                Sure, it's a typical conspiracy theory. That's why all the doctors who have developed such methods are forced to practice outside the USA or be thrown in jail for not doing what the AMA and the Pharma industry says. If it's not a treatment that makes the oncologists, hospitals and Pharma a fortune then it's unacceptable and made illegal. That's freedom in healthcare today as defined by the corrupt AMA and Pharma.

                  Even being more intelligent than the average doctor, therefore resistant to peer pressure, incites abuse by the authorities. I have a transcript of my appearance before the Florida Board of Medicine Credentials Committee about two decades ago when the (bad guy) psychiatrist who screens physicians for mental-health problems that interfere with medical practice said (not true) that I have Asperger's disorder and that I am more intelligent than he is. The implication is clear. Should I try to upload this transcript?

                    It sounds like it is germane to the discussion. Please upload it and provide a link if it isn't a hardship to you.

                      Done. See the original official transcript from the medical board at http://www.harshman.name/Linked-To_Ma... as formally released by the Florida medical bord (hard to convert nowadays) or my imperfectly converted version at http://www.harshman.name/Linked-To_Ma... in Word format. See pages 9 and 10 and note that my appearance before the medical board was after I had banged my head on the bottom of the ocean, breaking my neck and becoming totally paralyzed face-down, later entering and completing a PM&R residency, so my appearance before the board was an emotionally charged moment for me and the psychiatrist was maliciously unsympathetic.

                      (No, I won't upload the mental-health evaluation I had that said no I didn't have any Asperger disorder because hostile comments are sure to follow from my enemies.)

                        (P.S. The web host that I use is case-sensitive. If the download doesn't work, that may be why. I tested both files.

                        The web host service is domiciled in Sweden not the USA so any leftist antifa militants who hope to get the site taken down will fail. Remember Microsoft and Pirate Bay and what a mess that was? If you're an enemy of mine, you're stuck. The uploads STAY!)

                          Do you consider anyone who disagrees with you as an "enemy of mine". If so I will no longer take time to comment on your assertions. I sure do not want to be your enemy.

                            No, I don’t consider all who disagree with me to be my enemies. I have friends with whom I have political differences of opinion. I was announcing a strong defense, not a bullying offense, when I stated that I won’t let the real bullies tamper with my uploads. Use fair debate to explain your disagreements with me all you want. But anyone who uses personal attacks, intersectionality arguments, guilt, or other dishonest debate tactics must expect me to react. That attitude of mine won’t bother you at all if you engage strictly in fair debate.

                    I once presented information to the NIH showing a clear link between autism and certain neurotoxins. I had stumbled upon it with testing I was involved in firsthand. I thought I might not make it out of the building in one piece. The medical establishment simply will not tolerate having their authority or knowledge questioned.

                      I’m right with you on that. A long time ago, I had a commentary published saying one component of the cause of autism is imputed beliefs imposed on young children: “If I was in Billy’s position, I would like X. Therefore Billy likes X.” Hate e-mail followed, but no one rebutted my commentary with scholarly content: “No, that’s not what happens when imputed content occurs. Here’s what happens instead:....”

          Good point. We disagree only in that I think some standard cancer treatment has merit. But in Maine when I last checked, a doctor who gives chemotherapy in the office with a very expensive drug can mark its price up without limit and is not required to offer a patient the option of buying the drug at a discount pharmacy and bring it to the office for infusion. That policy of the Maine medical board has no defense regardless of the effectiveness of the treatment and corroborates your belief that oncologists are untrustworthy. If they weren’t, then we’d have heard from them about this obviously preventable abuse.

    Frequently the good will and generosity of the American public has been used to line the pockets of the unscrupulous. Aids in Africa (HIV need not be a requirement) and Farm Aid (failed t help very many, if any, farmers satisfy their mortgages) to name a few.
    I have no doubt there are building of lawyers and the associated staff sucking up the majority of the money given.
    If you can't hand it directly to those in need...

      There are so many "awareness" events that the real problem became trivialized. At work, they organize Breast Cancer marches, HIV marches, all kinds of marches.

      I was always wondering how the marching helps anybody? But I did not ask because that would not have been considered PC.

        Yes there are real problems that can be solved or at least alleviated. But all these marches and stuff, it is virtue signalling -
        look at me, a fine caring person.

      HIV Hopelessly Imitating Veracity was debunked a quarter of a century ago as the cause of AIDS. See my upload at https://youtube.com/watch?v=I1Q56pz7BDI and I will upload my copy of the book it refers to if I know I am safe in so doing.

        For a book that was to be unpublished by Ellison, it sure is easy to find it and all its misinformation and conspiracy nonsense.

        https://www.amazon.com/Why-Will-Never...

        Here is a little history dealing with the book:

          The book is back in print. That's good. I won't infringe on any copyrights. But more recently Henry Bauer (see https://www.amazon.com/Origin-Persist... makes a strong case that not only HIV doesn't cause AIDS, HIV might be an artifact of the interpretation of electron microscope images and might not exist. Bauer and Ellison both note that the behavior of AIDS does not match the ordinary spread of infections.

          The unpublishing was by court order.
          Name: Regnery v. Ellison
          Docket# 95CIV.157
          Judge: Sprizzo
          Date of proceeding: 11/20-29/95
          Type of proceeding: Trial 1085 pages $1/page

            Perhaps there was more to it than you write?

            From the Wiki article:
            "Inventing the AIDS Virus was first published in 1996 by Regnery Publishing.[2] The book was initially co-written with Bryan Ellison, one of Duesberg's graduate students at the University of California, Berkeley. However, following a 1994 dispute over manuscript changes, Ellison published the manuscript himself, under the title Why We Will Never Win the War on AIDS, listing himself as the lead author. A dispute between Duesberg and Ellison resulted, with Ellison charging that Duesberg was "doing favors on behalf of several people in the government" who wished to suppress the book.[3]

            Ellison also charged Duesberg with "cooperat[ing] with some of the very hostile factors to have me thrown out of school right before I could submit my thesis and get my Ph.D." Duesberg stated that "...since [Ellison] didn't talk to me anymore and didn't show up at the lab, I couldn't pay him anymore."[3] Duesberg and Regnery Publishing sued Ellison for breach of contract and copyright violations, winning a "six-figure verdict" and an injunction against Ellison's manuscript. In a publisher's preface to Inventing the AIDS Virus, Regnery described the dispute in terms of Ellison becoming "disenchanted with Duesberg's and his publisher's insistence on careful documentation."[4

              Yes there is more to it than I write. Your comment is about interpersonal conflict. The banned (and recently reissued) book is about science and includes a detailed analysis of immunosuppression and the coverup by the government and the monetary beneficiaries of the HIV-AIDS Theory. I studied that book; did you?

    I was President of my county's American Cancer Society group for several years. I learned they nor the March of Dimes funded anything in my county. I resigned.

      And if ACS American Confabulation Syndicate told the truth that abortions increased the risk of breast cancer, then pro-abortion donors would stop their gifts. I think ACS has sold out.

    When I was 20 years old, i worked as an auditor for the State of Texas. Once I questioned why our facility needed two $30,000 microscopes? I had intercepted a purchase order for one and knew we had one at the University. I suggested the professors share! Heavens above!

    We had a huge "run for the cure" event here for many, many years. I always said, "If they have a 'run for the cause' I'll run it wearing only running shoes."

    This is the rope-a-dope. This quest for a cure allows for lots of money to flow, virtue signaling, etc. How about if we figure out what's causing it and prevent it? Oh no!
