A few short words spell out the combination of factors which have led to the state where African-Caribbeans and their African cousins (who reside in the northern countries) suffer such an alarming level of prostate cancer, even when compared to their white brothers. Amongst other things.
The few short words are: ignorance, stupidity, greed, callous, evil and maybe the word "research" belongs in there somewhere.
Lets take the first word: ignorance.
The vast majority of Blacks from any quarter on this planet, have a vague or non-existent knowledge of the true factors that make for excellent, long duration health. That is ignorance.
The second word is: stupidity.
Almost every black person entirely relies upon and takes for granted that the white Euro-American medical and health institutes, are the only people or organizations who are responsible for the researching, honest solution finding, planning, management and administration of the health requirements of (black) people (in the Northern countries.) This is plain stupidity or wishful thinking (to be kind.)
The third word is: greed.
The greed of the most powerful influence upon medicine, and upon the health industries, and upon (medical) health research is jaw dropping to behold.
Time after time, it seems that the latest advertised, trumpeted and marketed to frenzy pitch "Wonder Drug" or "Magic Bullet", is going to deliver miracle cures as advertised and promised.
Time after time after time ... it is not just disappointed punters who end up with the ashes of the "Dream Cure" in their laps (and in their veins.) It is more cadevars in morgues up and down the countries where these "New Wonder Drugs" totally failed to deliver any kind of a cure.
All that occurs after the demand for special Governmental preference in terms of tax concessions and more, demands for Governments to sink "investment" money into the medical drugs manufacturers, demands for "protection from prosecution" for the claimed "few cases where the 'treatment' will have mortal consequences" upon the too-trusting, ignorant individuals who believed the Wonder Pill/Wonder Treatment, hype.
Any "patient" who goes to a doctor of medicine with some ailment or complaint, is likely facing (if it is a major body mal-condition), ... will be facing a Round-Robin of "treatments" which will last well into the next decade or two (or three, should that patient not have "croaked" by then.)
From the very first doctor that they see, that doctor well knows the Round-Robin journey this new patient is actually obliviously embarking upon. The doctor, being a "good doctor" does not, of course, tell the fearful, hopeful, trusting "patient" that with the first batch of Patented drugs, that patient is now on the merry-go-round which takes them from pill to different pill. And with each new Wonder Drug that patient is shifted to, because the last one wasn't doing it (or the Side-effects were just too much), the real winners who sit in their very expensive offices (when they are not jetting out for a 7 Star lunch in the best Parissiene restaurants), are happily rubbing their hands together at the growing sales of their newly lauched Wonder Drug. A drug which has a profit margin (even unknown to the prescribing doctors) of some 6000%.
And Darcus says, "Why, why, why is it that Black men are suffering so much more from Prostate cancer?" The next word gives even more of a clue.
The next word is: callous.
The purpose of any Pharmaceutical firm or corporate (so they tell us, and they tell Government Ethics Committees), is to make as much money as they possibly can (such have the laws applied to corporations been subverted --- and then called 'capitalism') and to dominate "their market place." After all, none of their executives, none of their marketing or sales forces, and not even any of their private investors are required to take the Hippocratic Oath (that is: if, any of you know what The Hippocratic Oath is?) They also say that they are 'helping the economy by providing jobs'. An argument, which for popularity seeking politicians, becomes a 'don't look too closely into that' subject.
So, the Pharmaceutical firm, the Pharmacy oligopoly, Big Pharma, the Drugs companies have an eye on the following few things:
1) Increasing sales of their drugs (sorry, "medications")
2) Increasing their market "share"
3) Increasing their profits --- increasing how much money they are all making. Very nice, thank you!
4) Getting doctors to prescribe their branded drug (more sales, more money!) Undeclared perks or bungs, and even undeclared income from Pharmaceutical companies direct to (many) individual doctors. Plus biased, or very deviously marketed "Medications Promotions Literature" and advertisements to doctors and other buyers of medicines.
5) Convincing government that they are ethical, and that they are "acting in the best interests of their shareholders." Which apparently is: to make the largest possible profits, and increase profits even more. No "ethical" interest at all expressed by them for the "patient".
6) Getting universities to support their brands or kinds of "treatments" for disease or pathologies. Through vastly lucrative financing or "Research Funding" schemes and hidden perks for medical "scientific" "researchers".
7) Making sure that research which the Pharmaceutical oligopoly is privy to, stays that way. Certain research findings which would, if publicly and widely known, greatly reduce society's blind dependence upon the drug 'em or slash 'em treatments of the medical establishment.
8) Finally, the last most significant activity of Big Pharma is to obliterate "the competition". Things such as Chinese medicine; Alternative Medicine; Holistic Medicine; Traditional Medicine; Counselling; Nutritional Therapies.
Big Pharma does this most successfully by running Black Propaganda, or Machiavellian, or "Sun Tzu: The Art of War ('Business Is War')" campaigns against such things through The Media.
A media which depends more on Drug advertising and related, revenues, than on motor car advert revenue. So, you know who is boss in that relationship --- don't you?
Now, would the media then run any stories of any successes with alternative means of improving people's health, or even of any ways of actually curing the ill? No, the media would not. Big Pharma would take punitive measures against any "news" paper or television company (which also depend for a vast portion of their income on Pharmaceutical product advertising) which ran any story contrary to Big Pharma's propaganda and drug treatment pushing. So would the puppet organizations which are the Food and Drug Administration and others.
We have now reached the last word, in our list of words, which is: evil.
Evil is a word which beautifully sums up the corrosive and malignant effect of the drugs companies upon both the practitioners of health and the health industry itself, right across the world. But, particularly, where it is easiest to get away with it --- which happens to be in the Northern countries of the West. The money is easier, these societies are fully trained into "consumerism", and the politicians and academia are also easier to coerce or to bully or to buy off. And sure, ambitious but as yet unskilled doctors and new drug trails are still conducted in Third World countries were the victims of bungled procedures or trials of new 'techniques' which are being perfected really for the expensive Advanced Nations medical market place ... and those new drugs under test protocols which can be easily evaded in places such as deepest, darkest Africa ... well, these happen. And the sophisticated justification is, "Well, should the (secretly) training doctor, or should these (hidden) drugs trials work out well for the patient then the patient got an opportunity he might otherwise never have had. So, it's all good!
What is the biggest industry on planet Earth? No, it's not that, it's the drugs industry. Some three trillion dollars worth, yearly. Count on that to pervert and skew any Hippocratic Oath or any sensible thinking on the part of the health service and on the part of the consumerist consumer, or even on the part of Governments that sit in hallowed white buildings which resonate to the history of the most famous Constitution of them all.
Darcus Howe, you have been told. Now, be a good boy would you? And join the queue for your medications. There's a good boy! What a jolly good sport, wot?
Or, you have another choice: wake up from constantly banging heads with head bangers. Head bangers that like nothing more than to assign their head banging crew to keep you occupied in doing just that, and getting nowhere getting any real and honest answers. So, you never get to see who or why, when and where, and how it is that "your people" are just another bunch of victims. Nothing any more racist than that the oppressors realize that you and yours have neither the (intelligence), nor the resources, nor the know-how to punch your way out of a wet paper bag, to arrive at any mastery of bio-chemistry and the health of the human body --- your own human bodies, even if they are black (and deteriorating to sickness.)
Realize also, that for quite some long time now, it has been known by the researchers of Big Pharma that malnutrition is the greatest single contributor to long term disease development. And, Big Pharma likes to cure that with drugs.
You say, "Malnutrition?" And you say, "But, I eat my fish and chips every day (or if you are really proud: you say, "I eats my rice and peas every day.") I never suffers from hunger. I gets food and eat up, me! Fried chicken and rice. Curry goat and ... . Malnutrition, what malnutrition? I even drinks plenty of good, strong Jamaican Rum. The good stuff! No problem, man! No malnutrition here!"
And yet, if you did the research (instead of head banging, year after year) or found good honest researchers in the field of nutrition and the African-Caribbean, or the African-African, who did not stealthly represent the interests of the drug pushing Big Pharma nor the Status Quo of the Medical establishment, you would be told of a spectrum of nutritional deficiencies peculiar and particular to African-whatever ("Black people") actually exist, and right now. And have done ever since slaves were shipped out of Africa. After all, it could well be said that most slaves who died on their voyage to "The Land of the Free", were slaves who died from malnutrition. Wouldn't it be so? And, has it changed any since those "un-enlightened" days of yester-Century? No, it really has not. Blacks continue to let themselves "to be sold down the river", onto their next master and enslaver (even if such a master is only a cleverly maintained state of degenerative ignorance.)
Finally realize that white people are "white" skinned for a reason.
That reason for white skin is the exact difference to why more "dark" skinned people (and, only in the Northern climes) suffer from more cases of prostate cancer. That is the hidden fact and factor.
What does skin transparency to light have to do with prostate cancer? How about "sunshine"? Practically no sunshine to speak of in the Northern climes for many months of any year. What's sunshine got to do with nutritional deficiency? Well, not all nutrition for the body comes ready created and through the mouth. The human body needs to make vitamin D3.
Another way to say this is: the body through evolution (or however it has got to today), has found that eating does not truly provide an extremely necessary nutrional component: vitamin D3. Which differs from vitamin D, and differs from vitamin D2.
The body then finds vitamin D3 so crucial that it causes white people and even, dark skinned people, to have lighter shade of skin, in the Northern climes. A lighter 'colour' of skin enables sunshine to reach into that level of the body where it it then provides energy assistance to the body in the creation by the body of vitamin D3. More completely, the human body then commits quite a bit of its own energy and processing to convert other substances plus sunshine (Ultra Violet B energy, not Ultra Violet A), into vitamin D3.
There now exist a very large number of ethical and honest studies which demonstrate what vitamin D3 helps the human body to do. And, vitally, definitive evidence exists that vitamin D3 is crucial when it comes to cancer and the human body.
White skinned people's bodys create more vitamin D3 during the winter months than do dark skinned people (in the Northern climates). And, that is if dark skinned people's bodies manage to create any vitamin D3 at all. 'Naturally', black people, dark skinned people suffer vitamin D3 malnutrition more keenly than do their white brothers. And, over the years, the deficiency aggravates the body's systems and functioning, more and more.
It is also a fact that black people suffer another kind of significant consequence of vitamin D3 malnutrition: namely, what psychs call "depression", for which psychs (psychiatrists/psychologists) like to dish out mind-bending drugs "for depression" "treatment". An observant person will observe that black people are far less jovial, energetic, lively, bright, or enlivened, during the winter months than they are during the bright, heady days of summer --- and few have ever noticed to wonder why.
But the psychiatrist and the Pharmaceutical companies noticed, and made drugs in readiness. And so did the maker and pusher of "Cold medicines", "Flu Vaccinations": Vitamin D3 is totally essential in the body's immune system. A deficiency of Vitamin D3, which happens 'all the time' for black/dark skinned people (Northern Climates), means that bacteria or virii which exist all year round (they don't die and then 'reappear' at winter time), can get into the body and be not attacked and destroyed -- no properly functioning immune system. No, or not enough Vitamin D3.
Now, Darcus, all your friends who died of prostate cancer --- all of them who got the good old Big Pharma drugs show and tell, and still died --- wonder what they would say if they knew that Big Pharma had this answer now for over 30 years, but never told. After all, Big Pharma "would be doing a disservice to the shareholders": telling about vitamin D3 and prostate cancer would mean no sales of cancer "treatments" and "medications". Plus, none of all those lovely Chem-therapy units. Those expensive ones, too! Just wouldn't do would it? It's just not cricket --- old boy! And, you African-Caribs are such good sports!
Yours sincerely, Venerable Chemical and Surgical Junkie --- and please! Would you throw in some toxic pollutants, or genetic pollutants, or Genetically Modified 'Foods', too! Why, thank you! You are so kind, understanding, responsible, ethical and considerate.
[The following is what was said to another venerable and honourable member of The Billionaire Old Crusts Gentlemen's Private Club, "Blacks are so laughably trusting and hopeful! They are even more trusting than that damned hunting dog of mine! Har, har, har!"
"And Cuthbertson, and Monseuir Henri, and Herr Gruber: you know I don't hate Blacks. I love them! They bring in so much more immensely pleasurable wealth for me, and for you too. Don't they? After all, you and I are the ones who really own 'their countries' har, har!
"And, we own all those mineral and other raw material reserves. Hell, we own all the patents that they need to establish any kind of industry on any of 'their nations', har! har! And, we dispose of, enrage, confuse, character assassinate, or have executed any 'bright' leaders or 'politicians' which they might occassionally burp up! Har! It's all too simple, really! As well as we confuse their nascent 'democracies' and bring them to finely boiling chaos. Har! And by telling them that they've got to do it all this way and that way for us to approve of you ... And there is the whole Smithsonian or the British library to learn first before 'you catch up' and are considered 'politically mature'! Goodness! We do have terrific fun don't we gentlemen?
"Also, we go to great lengths to take care of them, to feed them, to clothe --- even to teach them to dress correctly. Don't we?
"Don't we all put them on Social Security or some such? And provide them with other basics such as Council Housing ('The Projects'). You know, a thousand people to the acre! Har! har! har! While we go hunting on a little 'Safari' in hundreds of thousands of square miles emptied of (Blacks) by our Non-Government Organisations ('charities', 'social concern' organizations) who have carefully taught the Blacks that they don't know and have no slightest clue how to go about properly administering 'their' har! har! countries. 'Environmental Preservation', 'Animals Preservation' and all that. Just so we can jet off to 'bring them tourist, Big Dollar' hunting the 1000s and 1000s of tons of protein that goes free, running around those 'protected' animal wildlife 'parks'.
"And yet, just a few 1000 miles away, in any direction that you care to pick from those wild life reserves, there are millions of starving black bodies. Starving for a nice, juicy steak or two. And, even for some well grown fruit and vegetables.
"And yet, think of it: when we invaded the Americas, we immediately went to work annihilating all those un-tender sirloin steaks on hooves that they call 'buffalo'. Until we'd cleared more than enough land of the buffalo and its eaters, the 'Indians', so that we could build what we wanted and grow what we needed for proper sustenance and growth. And yet, and yet, we tell the Blacks in Africa, and here, that: 'Look at what us wicked White people did. We went and took the Americas and we cleared it of all things and people that we did not want. Look how bad and wicked it is to do that. How bad and wicked it is to do as you think you find is best to expand and develop as a people and a culture. Learn from our mistakes and don't clear land of wild, precious things. Keep those and get tourists to pay you to keep them.' Har! har! har!
"And, the Blacks fall for it, every time. They get much less money or production than if they went ahead and developed things in those hundreds and thousands of emptied of Blacks, wild lands, where the wildebeest, lion and the happy vulture, roam free. And they just haven't realised! Har! har! har!
And, they then spend their few, tourism earned dollars (their money is worthless), shopping in all the Wal-Marts, Tescos, Sainsburys and the rest, which we've put over there. And, we know that per man, we earn 6 times as much from 'their' resources as we pay them in Social Security --- so, who wins? We do! Har! har! har! Plus, we make sure that they don't on the whole, live long.
Clever all that bio-chemistry stuff. 'Nutrition', eh? Disease, ay? Har! har! har! 'Education', ho! ho! ho! 'Freedom', he! ho! he! 'Cure for cancer' ho! ho! 'Cure for AIDS' ha! ho! ha! 'Chemo-therapy' he! he! he! Aren't we clever, extremely wealthy boys! Har!]
I have added some additional but necessary material as I found that there was some more information which is necessary to all this. This additional information is posted in this thread, about post 8, further along these posts.
