How about another excerpt?
This is from the end of chapter 2, where the author has taken the time to begin to explain the connections between staff at the NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) and pharmaceutical companies and universities. It’s an entangled web that is funded by both the US government, but also pharmaceutical profits.
He closes the chapter with a rhetorical flourish that shows again in an easily observable way how far off the mission the agency that Dr. Fauci leads is.
It really caught my eye because so much of my daily life has been affected by the failure of this agency to stay on mission. This, as they say: “gets me right in the feels.”
“Most of us would like “America’s Doctor” to properly diagnose our illnesses using the best science, and then instruct us on how to get healthy. What if, instead of spending their entire budgets developing profitable pharmaceutical products, Dr. Fauci and the heads of other NIH (National Institute of Health) institutes deployed researchers to explore the links between glyphosate in food and the explosion of gluten allergies, the link between pesticide residues and the epidemic of neurological diseases and cancers, the casual connections between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease, between mercury from coal plants and escalating autism rates, and the association of airborne particulates with the asthma epidemic? What if NIH financed research to explore the association between childhood vaccines and the explosion of juvenile diabetes, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis, an the links between aluminium vaccine adjuvants and the epidemics of food allergies and allergic rhinitis? What if they studied the impacts of sugar and soft drinks on obesity and diabetes, and the association between endocrine disrupters, processed foods, factory farms, and GMO’s on the dramatic decline in public health? What would Americans look like if, for fifty years, we had a public health advocate running one of our top health agencies – instead of a Pharma shill? What would have happened if we’d spend that hundreds of billions of dollars on real science, instead of drug development? Dr. Fauci seems willing only to give us diagnoses and cures that benefit Big Pharma – instead of public health – and to cover his trail with artifice.”
Here’s the lines that jump out to me:
“Spending THEIR ENTIRE BUDGET developing drugs. “
“Glyphosate and gluten allergies”
“Mercury and autism“
“HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS on real science instead of drug development.”
There’s definitely some questions that need to be asked and resourced. This is just a paragraph, and it has no data in it. It’s a rhetorical flourish. You’d have to read the surrounding chapters to see all the data, the myriad of connections all these supposed “experts” have that serve on committees, boards, watchdog groups and so forth and how tied into the pharmaceutical companies they are. That’s bad enough, and then to see how ultimately all the funding comes from Fauci.
This book is a few months old. There were some emails released within the last couple of days that show how Fauci has a network of “experts” all throughout the world that under his direction give “expert” witness and testimony to the media, in boards and committees and even “watchdog” groups to quash information that is damaging to pharmaceutical companies.
Meanwhile, families like ours are left with the daily consequences of these failed opportunities.
It’s so gross. Judgment will come.
