What Doctors Don't Tell You
The truth about the dangers of modern medicine
by Lynne McTaggart
Unfortunately, it can't. Ms Taggart, a journalist, suffered extreme ill health herself, and in the process of finding a way to wellness, investigated a great deal of establishment and alternative medicine. The thrust of the book is that much of modern medicine is unscientific, unproven, corrupt and not just dangerous but deadly. This isn't just the view of medical heretics, but apparently, according to their own journals, doctors themselves. How they can go on practicing when their own journals tabulate such poor results for orthodox treatments is beyond belief. One can only put it down to an inability to break free from herd paradigims and big pharma corruption.
The impression I get of modern medicine after reading this book is that it is inseparable from the rest of the military-industrial complex, and far less to do with health than with profiting from illness. I repeat: nothing Lynne says is unsupported by references to respected sources. This is one of those books I would place on my 'philosophy' bookshelf.
Its basic premise is that doctors should be, if not avoided like the plague, used with extreme caution. Even medical tests such as ultrasound on unborn children apparently cause more trouble than they can ever solve (and that is not taking into account female infanticide).
This is one of those lynchpin revolutionary books. Read it and survive.
