A Modern Day Tuskegee

The crime of the Tuskegee syphilis experiment was that the cure for syphilis was kept secret from 399 black men with syphilis for almost 40 years. The experiment, which began in 1939, wasn't exposed until 1972. The point, such as it was, was to follow the natural history of untreated syphilis.

For the past 7 years, the world has been exposed to a public health crime on a vastly larger scale. Again, people of color--blacks and Hispanics--are affected more than whites. This time the crime consists of keeping the cure for another common disease, chronic kidney failure, secret.

In September, 2002, I published an article in a peer-reviewed medical journal, Diabetes and Technology Therapeutics, showing that early-stage kidney failure due to diabetes or high blood pressure could actually be reversed. These two diseases cause 90-95% of kidney failure.

The media wouldn't take my word for it. They needed somebody to "second" the paper.

Nobody in the renal community has come forward: not for-profit nephrologists, not non-profit foundations supposedly searching for a cure (with tax-payers' money), not state or federal agencies who again are using tax-payers' money supposedly to find a cure.

As a result, 100,000 people a year have gone on dialysis for the past 6 years in the US alone.

It's a sad day when medicine no longer wants to cure common diseases because they bring in too much money for the healthcare industry.

Healthcare reform needs to start with this example. In healthcare, quality improvement is job #1, not access.

Dave Moskowitz MDCEOGenoMed, Inc.www.genomed.com"The public health company(tm)"GMED.PK (on OTC Pink Sheets) Hi Dave Maskowitz, I know exactly how you feel. My life and health was destroyed by another well kept secret, that cyanob12 was a labaratory mistake and not the real b12. The real active b12s were identified in 1959 but methylb12 wasn't available in the USA until 1998 and the medical industry still firmly maintains that cyanob12 is the be-all and end-all. I started looking in 1978 for the "real" b12 since cyanob12 clearly wasn't. I have since cured myself of FMS, CFS and a bunch of unnamed problems with the two active b12s and essential cofactors. A lot of folks are finding it out on this board at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=9948&page=141. Their docs still give them the very wrong and outdated info and "therapies" based on cyanob12 or hydroxyb12. Methylb12 and adenosylb12 are 100 to 10000 times more active and effective in humans than either inactive cobalamin, cyanob12 and hydroxyb12. Talk about a supressed revolution waiting to happen. Some of the conditions listed on your web site may very well be affected by these active b12s and cofactors. The hostility with which information on active b12s is received is amazing.
