[WARNING] Taking a New Drug? Read THIS First
I have a question for you.
Would you volunteer for medical study?
Most people wouldn’t. And that is a big problem for mainstream medicine.
You’ve probably heard experts on TV pleading for money to fund scientific studies to find a cure for the recent coronavirus. Somehow, those experts think all science needs is money and time and to kick this disease.
But billions of dollars and decades have done nothing to change the outcome of muscular dystrophy (Jerry’s kids), cancer, or even the common cold or seasonal flu.
The main reason there’s no cure in sight has to do with who shows up to be tested in clinical studies.
Or rather, who doesn’t.
If you’ve been reading my articles for a while, then you know there’s one policy I stand by: NEVER take a new drug.
The reason? Every double-blind, placebo-controlled study (the so-called “gold standard” of studies) has a huge problem: they cannot get people to volunteer to be test subjects.
Why? No one with a brain trusts mainstream medicine to keep them safe.
A group of researchers at the University of York recently looked into the problem. Their investigation, published in the journal Trials, found that most people are too afraid to take part in studies.
The study, done in England, looked at the results of over 400 studies from around the world and found that up to 2/3 of British clinical trials can’t find enough participants.
And it’s because people have anxiety over testing new treatments and the possible side effects.
This is no surprise — people are scared and don’t trust mainstream medicine (or the drug companies) who hide side effects, lie about effectiveness, pay off doctors and governments to make sure a drug gets prescribed…
Anything to make money, even at the cost of your health.
The research team found that privacy and confidentiality concerns also ranked high as a reason people avoided trials. They also found that minorities and women were difficult to recruit.
I get it. Honestly, you would never find me volunteering to be a guinea pig in a new drug test.
But here is the problem most people don’t think about: drugs act differently in different people and if someone like you is not in the trail, then there is no way to know how that drug will work (or not work) for you.
The secret that mainstream medicine doesn’t want you to know is that people who volunteer for clinical studies are often different from you and me.
Volunteers are people who maybe need money. Sometimes they are those who are desperate for a cure, or they simply like the attention that comes from a study.
How can you trust a clinical study when it doesn’t have enough people that represent you?
The takeaway? Never take a new drug until it has been “tested” on a wide variety of people for at least a few years.
