Trust “The Science” — What “Science”?

Top Harvard Cancer Researchers Accused of Scientific Fraud, 37 Studies Affected

Boston: Several top researchers from the Harvard-affiliated teaching hospital, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, were accused of manipulating image data (pictures of Western blots) with simple copy-and-past techniques. It is unknown how these manipulations change the outcome of the studies. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston has already initiated six retractions to papers and 31 others are in the process of being corrected.

Sholto David, the man who discovered the manipulations, said, “”[W]e only see the tiny tip of the fraud iceberg – image data duplications, the last resort of a failed scientist after every other trick failed to provide the desired result, Billions of dollars were burned for this cancerous trash science, but it made many academic careers, some got very rich, and entire dynasties established themselves at Dana Farber.”

David said on his website that such fraud explains “why the progress in cancer research is so slow despite billions being invested into basic research.”

.Top Harvard cancer researchers, including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute President and CEO Laurie Glimcher, are being accused of faking data and committing scientific fraud.

From Ars Technica, “Top Harvard cancer researchers accused of scientific fraud; 37 studies affected”:

The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, is seeking to retract six scientific studies and correct 31 others that were published by the institute’s top researchers, including its CEO. The researchers are accused of manipulating data images with simple methods, primarily with copy-and-paste in image editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop.

The accusations come from [British molecular biologist] data sleuth Sholto David and colleagues on PubPeer, an online forum for researchers to discuss publications that has frequently served to spot dubious research and potential fraud. On January 2, David posted on his research integrity blog, For Better Science, a long list of potential data manipulation from DFCI researchers. The post highlighted many data figures that appear to contain pixel-for-pixel duplications. The allegedly manipulated images are of data such as Western blots, which are used to detect and visualize the presence of proteins in a complex mixture. DFCI Research Integrity Officer Barrett Rollins told The Harvard Crimson that David had contacted DFCI with allegations of data manipulation in 57 DFCI-led studies. Rollins said that the institute is “committed to a culture of accountability and integrity,” and that “every inquiry about research integrity is examined fully.”

The allegations are against: DFCI President and CEO Laurie Glimcher, Executive Vice President and COO William Hahn, Senior Vice President for Experimental Medicine Irene Ghobrial, and Harvard Medical School professor Kenneth Anderson.

David said on his website that such fraud explains “why the progress in cancer research is so slow despite billions being invested into basic research.”

David shared dozens of pictures like the one above showing dozens of researchers allegedly copy/pasting and faking their data.

“[W]e only see the tiny tip of the fraud iceberg – image data duplications, the last resort of a failed scientist after every other trick failed to provide the desired result,” David said. “Billions of dollars were burned for this cancerous trash science, but it made many academic careers, some got very rich, and entire dynasties established themselves at Dana Farber.”

Let’s Rethink Pink

The Cold Truth About Susan G. Komen and Breast Cancer Awareness Month


think before pink susan komenRick Simpson, who pioneered curing cancer with cannabis, discovered a shocking insight while attempting to share his discoveries with the Canadian government. He realized that government resistance wasn’t about using the illegal substance of THC hemp. It was simply that the cancer industry doesn’t want a cure!

There would be too much money lost, an economic resource vacuum. And the financial downturn wouldn’t be restricted to Big Pharma and the oncologists who deliver chemo. There are many affiliated medical enterprises involved with the trillion dollar cancer industry.

Big Pharma and government grant research funds to universities would dry up. Radiation treatment equipment leasing and sales would come to a halt. And those cancer fund raisers would have to call it quits.


Focusing on The Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Chief among those non-profit highly salaried fund raisers are The American Cancer Society (ACS) and The Susan G. Komen for the Cure. There are others, but these are the most visible with their “making strides” promotions, pink ribbons, and outrageous alliances with many cancer causing products to raise funds.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that’s when the Komen folks attempt to cover the nation with pink. Fund raisers include walks and runs “for the cure”, and well intentioned suckers flock in to feel good about themselves for participating in the bogus war against cancer.

In fact, very little goes into Big Pharma’s lucrative research fails and not one dime goes to doctors or researchers outside the cut, burn, and poison box of allopathic medicine.

There’s nothing for Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston. Nothing went to the late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez in New York, both of whom were doing their best going through FDA hoops to gain acceptance for their safe, efficacious treatments. No real follow up with the Gerson Institute or Hoxsey’s Bio-Medical Center, both forced into operating out of Mexico.

Not a dime toward researching mega-dose IV vitamin C either. By the way Komen, how come you haven’t consulted with TV star Suzanne Somers about her breast cancer cure from European mistletoe extract injections? She wrote the bestseller Knockout about it and other alternative cancer therapies that actually cure without side effects.

Komen spends a good deal on free mammograms as their idea of prevention. It’s been determined by independent research that mammograms can cause cancer or misdiagnose, resulting in unnecessary treatment.

Thermography is safe and effective. But Komen refuses to acknowledge this while pushing mammograms. Maybe that’s because or their arrangement with General Electric, which manufactures mammograms. So much for prevention. Instead, their mammogram program serves to get women into mainstream oncology’s grasp more quickly, sometimes erroneously.

Komen also spends a big chunk on education. Is diet mentioned? Is vitamin D or any other anticancer supplement mentioned? Are sugar filled products that cancer cells feed on warned against? How about carcinogenic cosmetic products. No way.

But there is some bickering about whether one should start treatments with chemo, surgery, or radiation therapy and of course, lots of mammogram infomercials.

Those same industries that sell carcinogenic products sign up for pinkwashing, a mutually beneficial practice of coloring their products pink to promote Komen’s “charity”. This enhances a commercial interest’s image while donating a small percentage of its profits to Komen.

Cancer Fund Raising Pays Very Well

Most of the money raised with these top cancer charities’ fund raising campaigns, events, and product promotional schemes goes to cover their organizational expenses, which include very hefty six figure annual salaries, bonuses, personal travel expenses, promotions, and lobbyists.

Over a half-million annually is not uncommon for CEOs, while lower management positions usually rake in a quarter of a million or more. Everyone is paid well except volunteers, of course.


Four Reasons Why Cancer Cure Fund Raisers are Bogus

First, there will never be a Big Pharma cure for the reasons mentioned earlier. Very similar to the financial world of investments’ notorious Ponzie Scheme, there is no real investment. But a few people are making good money with your investments of time, energy, and monetary contributions.

A small portion of their take goes toward funding research for Big Pharma’s poison mills. They haven’t come up with anything that cures more than harms ever since the “war on cancer” was declared in 1971.

Second, there are already several cures, a few hundred according to the and others. So why keep “researching”? For more money and keeping the public psyched that “the war on cancer” will be won by Big Pharma someday soon. Two time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling said, “Cancer research is largely a hoax”.

This illusion, maintained by mainstream media, hides the safe, effective cures that already do exist but can’t be patented and controlled by Big Pharma with the FDA’s police protection.

Third, Big Pharma doesn’t need your money or money from charities to which you donate or volunteer your services or participate in any way with their fund raisers. But they’ll take it to add some chump change to their coffers.

And the associated bottom feeders such as the American Cancer Society and Komen get financially fatter helping Big Pharma and the FDA maintain the illusion that Big Pharma will someday create something that might help more than harm.

Big Pharma already has billions for research and testing within the FDA program that guarantees approval while keeping out smaller more ethical and creative medical researchers who can’t afford to play the bogus approval game. Big Pharma doesn’t need money from charities.

Fourth, folks are putting time, energy, and money into a massive project that will offer back worthless, toxic products at outrageous prices. This is almost as bad of a deal as big government bullying you for taxes to benefit mostly themselves, too big to fail criminal businesses, and the war machine for conquering and colonizing sovereign nations to exploit resources without restriction.

So don’t buy “pinkwashed” products that donate a small percentage of their increased sales from identifying with cancer charities, mostly Komen. Those products are carcinogenic!

Don’t run or walk for cures that will never happen from Big Pharma, but already exist with many natural remedies and protocols.
