MS, cancer and FUD
More about systemic enzymes that are keeping me MS attacks-free - here
Have you ever heard about FUD phenomenon?
No - it isn't another terrible disease. Nevertheless, it's something even more dangerous. For anybody !?! That's how does orthodox medicine operate.
You see - FUD stands for fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
Just now you might be surprised: "What's in common between cancer and these not-so-nice things"?
I came across this elegant explanation, as and lots of others, in the article by a health ranger Mike Adams Cancer Industry Spreads Fear and Disinformation To Scare People Away From Learning About Alternative Treatments for Cancer on the Internet at his website NaturalNews.com. He describes all the system of persuading patients by cancer industry.
Although the author uses an example of cancer industry in his article, same situation perfectly applies to multiple sclerosis and all other autoimmune disorders. I've cited some his perfect insights in my article MS - name ambiguity, describing problems with multiple sclerosis definition.
Here I will put some crucial excerpts from the article:
- ...fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) initiated by purveyors of modern medicine in order to scare people away from finding information about cancer on the internet
- ...let's get to the bottom of this and look at the real reason why this kind of propaganda is being distributed through the national media. The real reason they are attacking cancer websites is because the internet is the only place people can go to actually learn the truth about the cancer industry and cures for cancer that don't involve chemotherapy, surgeries, or other radical procedures offered by western medicine
- Frankly, organized medicine would rather people remain ignorant. They don't want people to be informed about anything other than the treatments that they promote and control, and as a result they continue to engage in these FUD campaigns to discourage people from learning about health online
Ideally what the industry wants is a form of censorship - they want websites to be flagged to indicate which ones are "official" (therefore -
best) cancer websites
- ...person can undergo $50,000 worth of treatment and live an extra 3 months, and western medicine calls that a success, and it is their official position that that is the only treatment that should be available to sufferers of cancer - that if you go outside the system and find something that increases your lifespan by years or decades, then you are committing some sort of crime by venturing outside of orthodox western medicine
- ...existing cancer industry prevents prevention. They are against prevention. They do not want prevention to be well known or to be adopted by medical practitioners, and one of the ways they do that is of course to spread fear and uncertainty about alternative cancer treatments through headlines such as the one I'm discussing here. If they can scare people away from the internet, then they can keep people ignorant of the true treatments for cancer
What I like in particular - it's a nice analogy with plantation owners in the slave days of the United States. Mike Adams explains:
- it's kind of like if you ran a plantation back in the slave days of the United States, you would make sure your slaves remained illiterate, because that way they wouldn't gain enough education to venture out on their own and leave your plantation. In modern medicine, patients are like slaves, and the medical industry wants to keep everyone enslaved by making sure they don't have access to good information about how to prevent chronic disease. "Keep 'em dumb!" seems to be the slogan of organized medicine. The less you know about health and disease, the better they like it
Further the author presents major reasons for all this situation (the explanation perfectly fits for multiple sclerosis etc):
When it comes to cancer, western medicine has failed. It simply does not work - it doesn't cure cancer, it doesn't offer any long-term benefit to patients, and it only results in massive costs associated with these
short-lived treatments. Alternative medicine and natural healing approaches, on the other hand, are inexpensive: they are safe to use, they are widely used throughout the world, outside the United States, and they've been proven safe through thousands of years of effective use by various populations of the world who know far more about medicine and healing than our so-called "high-tech" system of modern medicine
Look - I never experienced any cancer. However, as a (former) multiple sclerosis (MS) sufferer, I experienced similar kind of FUD - directly and indirectly.
To be able to do something with it it's necessary to know it. It's included in magic words: "Knowledge of how to have health gives greatest power" I've chosen as My Health Manifesto.
Having more knowledge you are less vulnerable to FUD !

Even more information regarding history and different uses of FUD in different areas of human activity has been presented in a
Wikipedia article. It appears that:
FUD is generally a strategic attempt to influence public perception by disseminating negative and dubious/false information designed to undermine the credibility of their beliefs
Knowing this marketing strategy usually helps to understand, what and why happens around.
