Too much tinfoil hat stuff. This is the worst kind of conspiracy theory -- the kind that mixes science-medical-speak with a sinister cabal looking for world domination. Occam's Razor, folks. Simplest explanation is probably the best.

1. Healthcare should never be subjected to capitalistic pressures. The objectives of medicine and profit making can be diametrically opposed. The book makes this point, but veers into Bigfoot territory when the mere fact that drug companies profit from making us tak

Good info we should be aware of in order to improve lives.

Stroller provides evidence-based facts that one does not want to believe, but must. He exposes ideas one needs to think on, and evaluate prior to acknowledge the truth he exposes. Every adult planning to have a child should read this book prior to conception. Along with exposing major deception occurring in our governmental agencies, big pharmaceutical, and medical researchers findings one also learns some tips for eliminating the toxins

Shelves: medical, health
Some scary revelations by a long time medical practitioner about the current mainstream health care industry. Profits trump all else and the public health is grossly compromised on the way to bigger profits by drug companies, in an incestuous maze with the governmental agencies whose primary concern is to drive up business profits, not the people’s health. The author claims Lyme disease to be much more widespread than believed by the mainstream medicine, and gives plenty of useful advice on trea ...more

I haven't read this book yet, but I heard the author interviewed on the radio. He makes good sense. He is anti-vaccination, anti-fluoridation, and critical of for-profit medicine. He is a proponent of oxygen therapy. ...more

I want to start off by saying this book wasn’t what I thought it would be. Based on the title I didn’t think it was going to be conspiracy-theory laden. I thought it would be more about the difficulties in getting treatments though clinical trials and out to market, or about off-label uses for certain drugs. I had recently read Her2, about the path Herceptin took to FDA approval and I thought this would be more like that. It certainly was about the difficulty getting certain treamtents accepted ...more

Disbelieve at your own risk (Semmelweis reflex)

This review is for both the Kindle and Audible book versions.

The author, a practicing, experienced doctor, connects the dots in clear fashion: Our medical system is not just broken, it is corrupt, criminal, and intent on destroying us so that a few can obscenely profit and have control over society.

NO, this is not a conspiracy theory author, there are citations, references, and plenty of stuff that you can look up and confirm for yourself. Like I sa

Disappointing ending to a well researched beginning. Follow the money. As long as we have for profit health care and multiple fingers trying to get in on it without adding quality, we will have a poor healthcare system that cost too much.

This starts out really good and he has some facts to base it on then at the end, he goes off the deep end. He goes into areas that isn't his field and has a lot less back up. I have to question some of the statements from the middle on. Just because the govt is

Interesting diatribe on health care in the US and quite an indictment of Big Pharma. Some parts of the book were written in a way that makes the author sound like a paranoid nutcase, which does not help his cause, but he's on the right path. However, he lost me when I looked up one of his cites, a TED Talk by Bill Gates, and it was my determination that he took a comment out of context and misconstrued the purpose and intent of the talk. But there is enough real data cited to bear discussion amo ...more

I love the courage of this author to boldly state unpopular truths and opinions about the medical industry. Sometimes the medical terminology was a little bit over my head and I took my time reading it, but it was worth it. Read only if you dare to challenge mainstream thinking.

What can I say about this book. A frank and rather frightening look at modern medicine.

If you want to understand what really drives the phamaceutical industry (especially vaccines), you need to read this.

The information was valuable . editing was poor. The book was less focused than"innoculated" . The author will not be accepted by serious scientists due to the over generalizations about the.000066 percent who control us . He would do better sticking to facts instead of accusing too generally all pharmaceutical companies and government. I want to read this but without the speculation of the international cabal.

All should read this book. I suggest more edits to use less initials of medical terms.

I did not like this book.

The rhetoric's overblown, the writing is bad, the editing unprofessional at best.

The author may have important points, even valuable ones, but undercuts his message innumerable ways. I found it actually painful to read, in places.
