Modern medicine is not scientific

Abram Hoffer MD:

"Modern medicine is not scientific, it is full of prejudice, illogic and susceptible to advertising. Doctors are not taught to reason, they are programmed to believe in whatever their medical schools teach them and the leading doctors tell them. Over the past 20 years the drug companies, with their enormous wealth, have taken medicine over and now control its
research, what is taught and the information released to the public."

A nurse, hillwalker, charity worker and keen traveller ... snapshots from a life stolen by the mystery illness, ME

This is SO true . . . my daughter is studying Herbal Medicine and was so shocked and angry when she read the "given truth" in the Clinical medicine books she was advised to read! (Both she and I have ME/CFS). She is also shocked at the lack of logic shown by her peers when trying to understand the progression of chronic illnesses like ME. Until the system is changed, it seems that only illnesses that can be cured with a magic (and very expensive) pill will be those that are researched.
