topsecretfolder1 220x137 Scandalous: Scientists and Doctors Falsifying Research Data

Medical doctors are nearly revered by many individuals for their medical knowledge accumulated after years of schooling. These doctors have gone through years of training in what is regarded as the western based medicine philosophy, where drugs and surgery are more or less their specialties. In addition to knowing virtually nothing about nutrition, natural solutions, and how to address the root causes of health conditions, many doctors, as well as scientist, have also been shown to be falsifying data in order to have research published. What’s more, many colleagues of the scandalous individuals are urged to keep quiet about what they know.

Scientists and Doctors Falsifying Data for Research to be Published

A survey of nearly 2,800 scientists and doctors in the UK has found that 13 percent of them admitted to witnessing the falsification and fabrication of data created by their colleagues. Additionally, 6 percent of the nearly 2,800 individuals surveyed were aware of research misconduct at their own workplace which had never been properly investigated to looked into. Needless to say, there could very well be more scientists or doctors not speaking up, further increasing the scandal rate.

Dr. Fiona Godlee, editor for the British Medical Journal, for which the poll was conducted, says:

“While our survey can’t provide a true estimate of how much research misconduct there is in the UK, it does show that there is a substantial number of cases and that UK institutions are failing to investigate adequately, if at all…The BMJ has been told of junior academics being advised to keep concerns to themselves to protect their careers, being bullied into not publishing their findings, or having their contracts terminated when they spoke out…This survey chimes with our experience where we see many cases of institutions not co-operating with journals and failing to investigate research misconduct properly.

Interestingly enough, there is so much fraud occurring in the medical field that websites are popping up solely to target these numerous cases. Another medical fraud coming to light is the case involving Duke University and Anil Potti, a researcher formally known by mainstream medical experts for transforming cancer research for the better. However, the scientific papers published by Potti turned out to be completely falsified and skewered – a case showing and ultimately convincing many individuals that medical fraud can happen anytime and anywhere, even at high-status universities.

With doctors falsifying data, often withholding information from patients, and cheating on exams, it may be time to reconsider the blind acceptance of ‘doctor’s orders’.

    pix… go to china and stay there…go get the treatment they gave to the emperor of china "MERCURY"

    sure helped him like a long and healthy life (to bad they did not have homeopathy back then the mercury would not have killed him owing to the fact that there would be no mercury in said preperation)

    al boraq …. do have any idea of how many lives have been saved by "real doctors" using "real medicine" go back to your cave and think about this for a long time (a real long time)!!!!!!!!!!!

    how about the so called studies you site here at the quackeral society

    The problem here is with the perception of a Doctor. People perceive, because they have been thought, that a white lab coat means some kind of altruistic step down from god type hero. This could not be further from the truth.

    people lie to get to their ends, many, if not all wars are based on lies. Heck, I imagine some of the Doctors lied to get the education to get the degree to allow them to lie while a professional.

    Lets assume that all studies are honest. Nevertheless medicine does all it can to screen out the effects of the mind on the body. This in itself makes the vast majority of medical studies inherently flawed. The assumption that the mind has nothing to do with the body has prevented medicine from moving from a vestige of medieval alchemy into a truly effective healthcare system.

  • al boraq

    The history of science (especially medical science)'s the history of people driven by cold blooded curiosity obsession or sheer psychopathy to break the law and the boundaries of human decency.

    My hero Leonardo da Vinci's praised for his drawings of a pregnant female cadaver but if he'd been caught at the time he'd've been accused of all manner of crimes (not the least being a party to body snatching) and put to death. Even now anyone caught doing the same thing'd be locked up for life in whatever they call insane asylums these days.

    The founding fathers of modern medicine were men who were not only a party one way or another to murder (viz the clients of Burke and Hare and those who looked the other way) but also torture.

    Darwin himself had to be restrained after witnessing a whining dog being beaten and berated for spoiling the concentration of the surgeon torturing it in order to demonstrate the efficacy of the anaesthetic he was about to use on another dog.

    And psychiatry – in many ways still an ignorant Nineteenth Century science compared to other areas of research – still confers on its practitioners the almost medieval right to lock you up for life against your will and force you to undergo all manner of essentially experimental chemical electrical or even surgical treatments.

    In short if you're into molesting kids or mutilating women by butchering their wombs then medicine's still your best bet to go undetected.

    This doesn't make doctors and medicine bad but it's a side of themselves they prefer to bury and aboveall don't want you to know.

    This is, basicly, how testing, vaccine and treatment protocols were made in lyme disease. All, murderously, corrupt. The testing misses almost all lyme. The vaccine ruined lives and treatment is based on faulty grants, corrupt professionals and ins co greed to a point of treason. MO.

    UK doctors are little more than big pharmaceutical company drug pushers. Western medicine doesn't cure anyone, all it does is mask/supress the symptoms just enough to create a life long cash cow for the big pharmaceutical companies. My first port of call is the local Chinese herbalist, if they have medicine for your complaint they usually cure it outright.

  • Dr. A

    You have no idea what we HAVE to do to. We really have no choice, but then everyone and everything is corrupt, so why shouldn't we be too.

    I've got bills to pay, a staff, a spouse and family to support, and an image to maintain. It's all expensive and who can afford to go against the grain?

    • Pix

      So basically your ambition is greater than your morality. (Makes note never to visit another western doctor)

    • keldoone

      It is simple… get out. What you are professing is only an acceptable excuse to yourself. You are an "educated" individual…continue doing the research you learned to do…and in doing so find anyone of the numerous alternative means of really helping people out of their delimmas…We as doctors are on the edge of an incredible precipice… jump now… its only going to get worse.

      I quit the system years ago and found very valid alternative means that give me rave reviews… you can too.

      Is it scarey? well, ya! But consider the way things are going… are you going to be in front of a judge? If you really, really want to help people and "do no harm" get yourself to the new edge and you'll sincerely be able to help people without the worry. As always, its up to you.

      Only those who are on a path of "soul evolution" can afford to let go of the inevitable misery and mental illness of being an educated ego addict and become a wise steward of one's children, their health and their future.

      @DR.A – Hope this is an attempt at sarcasm, however if it's not (and I don't believe it is, in any way), read the following with maximum contempt for you and all in your profession that believe the same as you.

      How's your conscience?

      I have simple morals and ethics. I have told employers that I will not prostitute my self, in any manner, for any reason, to get or keep a job.

      Guess you can't say the same! In my view that makes you an outright WHORE of the worst kind (has syphilis settled in the brain and effected the thought process?).

      @Pix & DR.K – Agree completely.
