By Eustace Mullins

In 400 B.C., Hippocrates assigned the name of Cancer or crab
to a disease encountered during his time, because of its crab-like
spread through the body. Its Greek name was "karkinos." In 164
A.D., the physician Galen in Rome used the name of "tumour" to
describe this disease, from the Greek "tymbos" meaning a sepulchral
mound, and the Latin tumore, "to swell." The disease could not have
been very prevalent; it is not mentioned in the Bible, nor is it
included in the ancient medical book of China, the Yellow
Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine. Unknown in most
traditional societies, it spread with the rise of the Industrial
Revolution. In the 1830s, cancer was responsible for two per cent of
the deaths around Paris; cancer caused four per cent of deaths in the
United States in 1900.

With the rise of cancer came "modern" methods of coping with
it. A leading critic of the medical establishment, Dr. Robert S.
Mendelsohn, comments that "Modern cancer surgery someday will
be regarded with the same kind of horror that we now regard the use
of leeches in George Washington's time." The surgery of which he
spoke is the widely accepted and imposed method of cancer
treatment now in vogue throughout the United States. It is called the
"cut, slash and burn" technique. This method of cancer treatment
actually represents the highwater mark of the German allopathic
school of medicine in the United States. It relies almost exclusively
on surgery, bleeding and heavy use of drugs, with the exotic
addition of radium treatment. The Temple of the modern method of
cancer treatment in the United States is the Memorial Sloan
Kettering Cancer Institute in New York. Its high priests are the
surgeons and researchers at this center.

Originally known as Memorial Hospital, this cancer
establishment was presided over during its early years by two
physicians who were stereotypes of the Hollywood caricatures of
"the mad doctor." If Hollywood planned to make a movie about this
hospital, they would be stymied by the fact that only the late Bela
Lugosi would be appropriate to play not one, but each of these two
doctors. The first of these "mad" doctors was Dr. J. Marion Sims.

Son of a South Carolina sheriff and tavern owner, Sims (1813-1883)
was a nineteenth century "women's doctor." For years he dabbled in
"experimental surgery" by performing experiments on slave women
in the South. According to his biographer, these operations were
"little short of murderous." When plantation owners refused to allow
him to conduct further experiments on their slaves, he was forced to
purchase a seventeen year old slave girl for $500. Within a few
months he had performed some thirty operations on this unfortunate,
a girl named Anarcha. Because there was no anesthesia at that time,
he had to ask friends to hold Anarcha down while he performed his
surgery. After one or two such experiences, they usually refused to
have anything further to do with him. He continued to experiment
on Anarcha for four years, and in 1853, he decided to move to New

 Whether his little Negro hospital in South Carolina was
surrounded by screaming villagers one night as they brandished
torches, as in an old Frankenstein movie, is not known. However,
his decision to move seems to have come rather suddenly. Dr. Sims
bought a house on Madison Avenue, where he found a supporter in
the heiress of the Phelps empire, Mrs. Melissa Phelps Dodge. This
family has continued to be prominent supporters of the present
cancer center. With her financial assistance, Sims founded Women's
Hospital, a 30 bed, all charity hospital which opened on May 1,

Like a later quack, "Doc" Simmons, Sims advertised himself as
a women's specialist, particularly in "vesico-vaginal fistula," an
abnormal passage between the bladder and the vagina. It is now
known that this condition has always been "iatrogenic," that is,
caused by the ministrations of doctors. In the 1870s, Sims began to
specialize in the treatment of cancer. Rumors began to circulate in
New York of barbarous operations being performed at Women's
Hospital. The "mad doctor" was at it again. The trustees of the
institution reported that "the lives of all the patients were being
Women's Hospital.

However, because of his powerful financial supporters, he was soon
 reinstated. He was then contacted by members of the Astor
family, whose fortune was founded on old John Jacob Astor's
 ties with the East India Company, the British Secret Intelligence
 Service, and the international opium trade. One of the Astors
had recently died of cancer, and the family wished to
establish a cancer hospital in New York. They first approached the
trustees of Women's Hospital with an offer of a donation of
$150,000 if they would turn it into a cancer hospital. Smarting from
his recent firing, Sims double-crossed the trustees by private
negotiations with the Astors. He persuaded them to back him in a
new hospital, which he called the New York Cancer Hospital.

It opened in 1884. Dr. Sims later went to Paris, where he attended the
Empress Eugenie. He was later awarded the Order of Leopold from
the King of the Belgians. Apparently he had lost none of his
chutzpah. He returned to New York, where he died shortly before
the opening of his new hospital.

In the 1890s, after receiving gifts from other benefactors, the
hospital was renamed Memorial Hospital. In the mid-twentieth
century, the names of Sloan and Kettering were added. Despite
these names, this cancer center has for many years been a major
appendage of the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly. During the 1930s,
a block of land on the fashionable Upper East Side was donated by
the Rockefellers to build its new building. Rockefeller henchmen
have dominated the board ever since the building was opened.

In 1913, a group of doctors and laymen met in May at the Harvard
Club in New York City to establish a national cancer organization.
Not unnaturally, it was named the American Society for the Control
of Cancer. Note that it was not called a society for the cure of
cancer, or the prevention of cancer, nor have these ever been
primary goals of this organization. 1913, of course, was a very
significant year in American history. During that fateful year,
President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act, which
was set up to provide funding for the forthcoming World War; a
national progressive income tax, taken directly from Marx's
Communist Manifesto of 1848, was imposed upon the American
people; and legislatures had their constitutional duty of appointing
Senators removed, they being henceforth elected by popular
Senators; they all now had to compete for the popular vote.

It was in this heady era of socialist planning that the cancer society
originated. Naturally enough, it was funded by John D. Rockefeller,
Jr. His attorneys, Debevoise and Plimpton, remained dominant in
the administration of the new society throughout the 1920s. Its
funding came from the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Foundation, and
from J. P. Morgan.

From its inception, the American Cancer Society has followed
the pattern set up by the American Cancer Society. ACS also had a
board of trustees, a House of Delegates, and in the 1950s, it also
established a Committee on Quackery. This Committee later
changed its name to the Committee on Unproven Methods of
Cancer Management (note that it was called management, not cure),
but the society still used to term "quackery" freely in referring to
any methods not sanctioned by its trustees, or deviating from the
"cut, slash and burn" method of cancer treatment.

In 1909, the railroad magnate, E. H. Harriman (whose fortune,
like that of the Rockefellers, had been funded entirely with
Rothschild money funneled to him by Jacob Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb
Co.) died of cancer. His family then formed the Harriman Research
Institute. In 1917, the scion of the family, W. Averell Harriman,
abruptly decided to go into politics, or rather, to manage our
political parties from behind the scenes. The Institute was suddenly
shut down. Its financial backing was then transferred to Memorial
Hospital. The principal backer of the hospital at that time was James
Douglas, (1837-1918). He was chairman of the Phelps Dodge
Corporation, whose heiress in 1853, Melissa Phelps Dodge, had
been the initial backer of what eventually became Memorial
Hospital. She had married a dry goods merchant named William
Dodge, who used the Phelps fortune to become a giant in copper

The Dictionary of National Biography describes James Douglas
as "the dean of mining and metallurgical properties." He owned the
richest copper mine in the world, the Copper Queen Lode. Born in
Canada, he was the son of Dr. James Douglas, a surgeon who
became head of the Quebec Lunatic Asylum. His son joined the
Phelps-Dodge Company in 1910, later becoming its chairman.
Because he had discovered extensive pitchblende deposits on his
Western mining properties, he became fascinated with radium. In
collaboration with the Bureau of Mines, a government agency which
he, for all practical purposes, controlled, he founded the National
Radium Institute. His personal physician was a Dr. James Ewing
(1866-1943). Douglas offered to give Memorial Hospital $100,000,
but there were several conditions. One was that the hospital must
hire Dr. Ewing as its chief pathologist; the second was that the
hospital must commit itself to treating nothing but cancer, and that it
would routinely use radium in its cancer treatments. The hospital
accepted these conditions.

With Douglas' money behind him, Ewing soon became head of
the entire hospital. Douglas was so convinced of the benefits of
radium therapy that he used it frequently on his daughter, who was
then dying of cancer; on his wife; and on himself, exposing his
family to radium therapy for the most trivial ailments. Because of
Douglas' prominence, the New York Times gave a great deal of
publicity to the new radium treatment for cancer. The journalist
headlined his story with a page one headline, "Radium Cure Free for
All." The claim was made that "not one cents worth of radium will
be for sale," Douglas was greatly annoyed by this statement, and on
October 24, 1913, he had the Times run a correction. He was quoted
as follows, "All this story about humanity and philanthropy is
foolish. I want it understood that I shall do what I like with the
radium that belongs to me." This was a rare glimpse of the true
nature of the "philanthropist." His rivals in this field, Rockefeller
and Carnegie, always give away their money with no strings
attached. With this assurance, they were able to stealthily establish
their secret power over the nation. Douglas had revealed the true
nature of our "philanthropists."

The original press releases from Memorial Hospital had in fact
intimated that the radium treatments would be free. They apparently
believed that the great philanthropist James Douglas would donate
his supply. The Memorial Hospital Rules and Regulations were
immediately changed to stipulate that "an extra charge would be
made for Radium Emanations used in the treatment of patients." In
1924, the Radium Department at Memorial Hospital gave $18,000
radium treatments to patients, for which it charged $70,000 its
largest single source of income for that year.

Meanwhile, James Douglas, who had boasted that he would do
what he liked with his radium, continued to give himself frequent
treatments. A few weeks after the New York Times story in 1913, he
died of aplastic anemia. Medical authorities now believe that he was
but one of a number of personalities associated with the early
development of radium who died from its effects, the most famous
being Marie Curie, wife of its discoverer, and her daughter, Irene
Joliot-Curie. By 1922, more than one hundred radiologists had died
from X ray induced cancer.

Douglas' protégé, Dr. Ewing, remained at Memorial Hospital
several more years. He developed a number of ailments, the most
annoying being tic doloreux, which made it embarrassing for him to
meet or talk with anyone. He withdrew from the hospital, becoming
a recluse on Long Island, where he finally died of cancer of the
bladder in 1943.

Douglas' son and heir, Lewis Douglas, inherited one of the
largest American fortunes of that time. He married Peggy Zinsser,
daughter of a partner of J. P. Morgan Co. Peggy's two sisters also
married well; one married John J. McCloy, who became the chief
lawyer for the Rockefeller interests; the other married Konrad
Adenauer, who became Chancellor of postwar Germany. Lewis
Douglas became chairman of Mutual Life of New York, a Morgan
controlled company. Early in World War II, he became a protégé of
W. Averell Harriman in the Lend Lease Administration. Douglas
was then named chairman of the War Shipping Board, one of the
famous "dollar a year" men of the Roosevelt administration. Later in
the war, he succeeded Harriman as U.S. Ambassador to England.
After Hitler's fall, Douglas was slated to become High
Commissioner of Germany, but he stepped aside to allow his
brother-in-law, John J. McCloy, to take this post. The two
Americans were pleasantly surprised when their brother-in-law,
Konrad Adenauer, was named Chancellor. The family interests of
the J. P. Morgan firm were firmly in control. In fact, Adenauer's
earlier political activities in wartime Germany had centered around a
small group of J. P. Morgan cohorts in Germany. They were ready
to take over when Hitler died.

In the 1930s, two giants of the automotive industry were
persuaded to become contributors to Memorial Hospital. Alfred P.
Sloan had been president of General Motors for a number of years.
He was also a director of J. P. Morgan Co. In 1938, he owned
750,000 shares of General Motors. He owned a 235 foot yacht
which was valued at one and quarter million dollars in 1940.

Charles Kettering was an authentic inventive genius, responsible for
much of today’s auto ignition, lights, starters and other electrical
systems. Fortune estimated in 1960 that Sloan was worth 200-400
million dollars, while Kettering was worth 100 to 200 million.
Alfred Sloan's credentials as a philanthropist were somewhat
marred by his record at General Motors. He had steadfastly opposed
the installation of safety glass in Chevrolet cars. During the 1920s,
the lack of safety glass meant that a relatively minor auto accident,
if it caused the breaking of the windshield or the windows of a car,
could result in hideous disfigurement or death for the occupants.

Shards of flying glass would rip through the interior, slicing the
passengers as it tore by. For a relatively minor amount, the ordinary
glass used in automobiles during that period could be replaced with
safety glass. Today, safety glass is required on all cars. Sloan made
a public statement on this issue on August 13, 1929. "The advent of
safety glass will result in both ourselves and our company absorbing
a very considerable portion of the extra cost out of our profits. I feel
that General Motors should not adopt safety glass for its cars and
raise its prices even a part of what that extra cost should be."

On August 15, 1932, Sloan again reiterated his opposition to the
installation of safety glass in General Motors' automobiles. "It is not
my responsibility to sell safety glass," he complained. "I would very
much rather spend the same amount of money on improving our car
in other ways because I think, from the standpoint of selfish
business, it would be a very much better investment.'' The Alfred P.
Sloan Foundation is doing well; in 1975 it had $252 million, which
grew to $370 million by 1985. It and the Charles F. Kettering
Foundation ($75 million) continue to be the chief benefactors of the
Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. A liberal editor, Norman Cousins,
heads the Kettering Foundation.

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is headed by R. Manning Brown, Jr.
Directors include Henry H. Fowler, former secretary of the Treasury,
now a partner of Goldman Sachs Co., New York investment bankers ~
also director is Lloyd C. Elam, president of the nation's only black medical s
chool, Meharry College in Nashville, Tennessee; Elam is also a director of
the giant Merck medical firm; Kraft, South Central Bell Telephone, and the
Nashville Bank; Franklin A. Long represents the necessary
Rockefeller connection as a director of Exxon; he is also a director
of United Technologies, Presidential Science Advisory
Commission, professor of chemistry at Cornell since 1936, a
Guggenheim fellow, he has received the Albert Einstein Peace
Prize ~ he is a member of the American Pugwash Steering
Committee, set up by the notoriously pro-communist financier
Cyrus Eaton who was a Rockefeller protégé.

Pugwash is said to be directed by the KGB; Herbert E. Longenecker,
 president of Tulane University; he serves on the selection committee
for Fulbright students, a very powerful position ~ his list of awards and honors
in Who's Who goes on for several paragraphs; Cathleen Morawetz,
who is a director of National Cash Register, also a Guggenheim
fellow; she is married to Herbert Morawetz, a chemist from Prague;
Thomas Aquinas Murphy, president of General Motors for many
years, also director of Pepsico, and the National Detroit
Corporation; Ellmore E. Patterson, who had been with J. P. Morgan
Company since 1935, he also serves as treasurer of Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center, and is director of Bethlehem Steel, Engelhard
Hanovia, and Morgan Stanley; Laurance S. Rockefeller, who is
director of Reader's Digest, National Geographic Society, and the
Caneel Bay Plantation; Charles J. Scanlon, director of the GM
Acceptance Corporation, Arab-American Bank of New York, and
trustee of Roosevelt Hospital, New York; and Harold T. Shapiro,
president of the University of Michigan, director of Dow Chemical
Corporation, and Ford Motor Co., Burroughs, Kellogg, and the
Bank of Canada—Shapiro has been on the advisory panel of the
Central Intelligence Agency since 1984; he also is an advisor to the
U.S. Treasury Department.

The governing board of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer
Institute, called the Board of Managers, reads like a financial
statement of the various Rockefeller holdings. Its principal director
for many years was the late Lewis Lichtenstein Strauss, partner of
Kuhn, Loeb Co., the Rothschild bankers in the United States.
Strauss listed himself in Who's Who as "financial advisor to the
Messrs. Rockefeller." He was also a director of Studebaker,
Polaroid, NBC, RCA, and held government posts as Secretary of
Commerce and as head of the Atomic Energy Commission. For
many years he funneled Rockefeller funds into the notorious
Communist front, the Institute of Pacific Relations. Strauss was also
president of the Institute for Advanced Study, a Rockefeller think
tank at Princeton, and financial director of the American Jewish
Committee, for which he raised the funds to publish the propaganda
organ, Commentary magazine.

Another prominent director of Sloan Kettering was Dorothy
Peabody Davison, a leading New York socialite for some fifty
years. She had married F. Trubee Davison, son of Henry Pomeroy
Davison, a Rockefeller relative who had been the right-hand man for
J. P. Morgan. Davison was one of the group of five leading bankers
who met with Senator Nelson Aldrich (his daughter married John D.
Rockefeller, Jr.) at Jekyll Island in a secret conference to draft the
Federal Reserve Act in November of 1910. The Dictionary of
National Biography notes that Davison "soon won recognition from
J. P. Morgan, frequently consulting with him, particularly during the
monetary crisis of 1907. In association with Senator Aldrich, Paul
M. Warburg, Frank A. Vanderlip and A. Piatt Andrew, he took part
in drawing up the Jekyll Island report that led to the crystallization
of sentiment resulting in the creation of the Federal Reserve

 As head of the Red Cross War Council during the First World War,
Davison raised $370,000,000, of which a considerable
number of millions were diverted to Russia to salvage the
floundering Bolshevik government. His son and namesake, Henry P.
Davison married Anne Stillman, daughter of James Stillman, head
of the National City Bank which handled the enormous cash flow
accruing to the Standard Oil Company. H. P. also became a partner
of J. P. Morgan Co.; his brother, F. Trubee Davison, married
Dorothy Peabody, the nation's leading philanthropic family.

The Peabodys may be said to have invented the concept of foundation
philanthropy, the first major foundation being the Peabody
Education Fund, set up in 1865 by George Peabody, founder of the
J. P. Morgan banking firm; it later became the Rockefeller
Foundation. Dorothy Peabody's father was the renowned Endicott
Peabody, founder of the Establishment training school, Groton,
where Franklin D. Roosevelt and many other front men were
educated. Dorothy Peabody was on the national board of the
American Cancer Society for many years, as well as director of
Sloan Kettering. She was also a noted big game hunter, making
many forays to India and Africa, and winning many trophies for her
prize animals. Her husband was Secretary of War for air from 1926-
32, and was president of the American Museum of Natural History
for many years; this was Theodore Roosevelt's favorite charity.

Her son, Endicott Peabody Davison, became secretary to the J. P.
Morgan Co., and then general manager of the London branch of the
firm; he has been president of U.S. Trust since 1979, director of the
defense firms Scovill Corporation and Todd Shipyards, also the
Discount Corporation. He is a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum
of Art and the Markle Foundation, which makes key grants in the
communications media. Eisenhower's Secretary of State, John
Foster Dulles, was also related to the Rockefellers through the
Pomeroy family.

The present Board of Managers of Memorial Sloan Kettering
Cancer Center include Edward J. Beattie, a Markle scholar at
George Washington University, and staff member of Rockefeller
Hospital since 1978, fellow of the American Cancer Society, and

This is only the Board of Managers of Memorial Sloan
Kettering, the nation's preeminent cancer center. Each person on the
Board of Managers shows many direct or indirect links with the
Rockefeller interests. The Center's Board of Overseers includes Mrs.

relations director of Memorial Sloan Kettering, noted that Reader's
Digest is often a barometer of orthodox thinking on the cancer
problem. The Rockefellers remain the most prominent contributors

Not only do the boards of Memorial Sloan Kettering have
direct ties to the Rockefellers; they are also closely linked with
defense industries, the CIA, and chemical and drug firms. It is no
accident that they serve on the board of an institution whose
recommendations on cancer treatment mean literally billions in
profits to those who are in the right position to take advantage of
them. And you thought this was a charitable organization! The fact
is the Memorial Sloan Kettering and the American Cancer Society
are the principal organizational functionaries, with the American
Medical Association, of the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly. In
1944, the American Society for the Control of Cancer changed its
name to American Cancer Society; it was then placed in the hands
of two of the most notorious patent medicine hucksters in the United
States, Albert Lasker and Elmer Bobst.

Albert Lasker, born in Freiburg, Germany (1880-1952) has
been called "the father of modern advertising." He focused on easily
remembered slogans and constant repetition to drill his messages
into the heads of the American people. Like other successful
hucksters memorialized in these pages, he began his career as a
journalist. He was brought to this country by his parents, who settled
in Galveston, Texas. His father, Morris Lasker, became a
representative for Rothschild banking interests, and soon became the
president of five banks in Texas. He lived in a luxurious mansion in
Galveston, was a prominent grain and cotton dealer, and because of
extensive interests in West Texas, he became known as "the
godfather of the Panhandle." He died in 1916, leaving his son Albert
as his executor. Needing cash to expand his advertising business,
Albert Lasker hurriedly sold the lands at a bargain price, which in
1916, was not very much. His business acumen failed him here,
because more than one billion dollars of oil was later discovered on
those lands.

At the age of sixteen, Albert Lasker became a reporter on the
Galveston News; he soon moved on to a better paying position in
Dallas, on the Dallas Morning News, the largest newspaper in
Texas. He soon found that the real money in the newspaper business
was not in journalism, but in advertising, which brought in most of
the revenue. Lasker went to Chicago, where he talked his way into a
position with Lord and Thomas, the city's largest agency. He was
only nineteen years old. Because he had agreed that his salary
depended on how much business he could bring into the firm, he
became a fanatical hustler. At the age of twenty-five, he had saved
enough money, together with his family's money, to buy twenty-five
per cent of the agency. At that time, he was earning one thousand
dollars a week; the president of the United States was then paid ten
thousand dollars a year. At the age of thirty, Lasker bought the
entire agency. He went on to participate in some of the most
memorable advertising campaigns in the history of the business.

He built a three and a half million dollar estate in the exclusive suburb
of Lake Forest, Mill Road Farm, a 480 acre spread with twenty-seven
buildings, and a million dollar golf course which Bob Jones
described as one of the three best golf courses in the United States.
At the age of 42, he had arrived. The estate employed fifty workers,
who kept six miles of hedges clipped each week. The French
chateau in the center of all this luxury was more magnificent than
anything built by his crusty neighbors, who viewed him with ill-disguised
dislike. For years, he was the only Jewish resident, and he
delighted in bruiting it about that he intended to leave the estate in
his will as a Jewish community center.

Lasker was always very active in major Jewish organizations,
serving on the American Jewish Committee and the powerful Anti-
Defamation League. His sister Florine founded the National Council
of Jewish Women and the Civil Liberties Committee in New York;
another sister, Etta Rosensohn, was a passionate Zionist who headed
the Hadassah Organization.

During the First World War, Lasker had been persuaded by his
friend Bernard Barruch to join Woodrow Wilson's cabinet as an
assistant secretary; this was to be his only government post. Despite
the fact that he had built Lord and Thomas into a giant advertising
agency, he felt that Chicago was too small for him; he soon moved
his headquarters to New York. When he joined the agency, it had
only $900,000 a year income, of which a third came from one
product, Cascarets, a laxative. After he moved to New York, he
realized that he was in a position to launch national campaigns to
sell products whose stocks would then greatly increase in value. He
cannily invested large sums in products which had not yet gained
wide public acceptance, his most notable triumph being his
promotion of Kotex.

The press had long had a phobia about any mention of Kotex, and it was
 seldom advertised. Lasker bought a million dollars worth of
International Cellulose, its manufacturer, and then launched a
tremendous campaign in newspapers and magazines. He made many
millions in profits on this one operation.

Not only did he charge the firm for his advertising campaign, but he
also reaped millions from the stock operation. He repeated this
formula with other products, amassing a fortune of fifty million
dollars. He later boasted that "No one has taken as much money out
of advertising as I have."

Lasker was behind many of the nation's most successful radio
shows. He auditioned Bob Hope, and launched him on a sixty year
career. It was Lasker who made Amos and Andy the most popular
radio show in the United States. He hired them for Pepsodent
because he said that the half of the American population who
listened to the show each evening would be envisioning the white
teeth flashing "in those dusky countenances." The sponsor of the
show was Pepsodent toothpaste. Although the program is now
denigrated as offensive to American blacks, if Lasker were still
alive, he would push it as the nation's most successful television

Lasker owned the Chicago Cubs, and was a heavy gambler. He
was known to bet as much as $40,000 on a single golf match. He
also was a hard driving taskmaster. In the depression year of 1931,
he had a personal profit of one million dollars. This did not dissuade
him from cutting back the expenses of his business. He took
advantage of the widespread unemployment and the depression to
fire fifty people from the staff of Lord and Thomas; those who
remained had their salaries cut by fifty per cent.

One of Lasker's most successful promotions was his campaign
to popularize drinking orange juice for the Sunkist company. He is
best remembered, however, for his association with American
Tobacco's George Washington Hill. When Lasker came onto the
scene, Percival Hill was still the firm's president. The son of a
prominent Philadelphia banker, he had built up a successful carpet
business, which he sold, investing the proceeds in a tobacco
company, Blackwell Tobacco; he then sold this firm to the tobacco
king, James Duke.

Duke reorganized the firm in 1911 and asked Hill to become
president, his son, George Washington Hill, became vice
president. Lasker got the account after World War I, when tobacco
manufacturers were very conservative in their advertising
expenditures. They rarely spent large sums promoting a single
brand, preferring to advertise their entire line. Lasker persuaded the
Hills to concentrate their advertising, and to increase their budget.

They did so and sales skyrocketed. In a single year, Lasker
increased their advertising budget from one million to twenty-five
million dollars. He managed to maintain good relations with the
arrogant and domineering George Washington Hill, whose
crudeness was memorialized by Sidney Greenstreet in the film "The
Hucksters." Greenstreet portrayed Hill as a loathsome slob who
made his point by spitting a great gob on the table in front of his

Lasker created the catchy slogan for Lucky Strikes, "It's
Toasted." When World War II began, he tried to foist a supposedly
patriotic slogan on the American public, "Lucky Strike Green Has
Gone To War." The campaign was a flop. It was a flimsy pretext
that the green color used in the package had been requisitioned for
the war effort.

Lasker's greatest achievement was his national campaign to
persuade women to smoke in public. He could be said to be the
father of women's lung cancer. At that time, few women were bold
enough to be seen smoking in public. Ably assisted by his minions
in Hollywood, Lasker saw to it that in many scenes of movies,
leading women would be seen smoking cigarettes in public. His
greatest success was through Bette Davis, who delivered her lines in
almost every scene through a thick cloud of smoke. Smoking in
public now became common, creating a vast new market for
cigarettes, which, of course, was Lasker's only goal. Some twenty
years later, many of these women were dying from emphysema or
lung cancer.

Lasker's furious pace took its toll. He had three nervous
breakdowns, but his greatest shock came when his wife died in
1936. He met an actress the following year, Doris Kenyon, and
impulsively married her. The marriage lasted only a few months.
She went back to Hollywood, divorced him, and married the
brother-in-law of pianist Arthur Rubinstein, which proved to be a
successful marriage. In 1939, while lunching with Wild Bill
Donovan at the "21 Club" who was soon to become head of the
wartime OSS, later the CIA, he was introduced to an attractive
divorcee, an art dealer named Mary Woodard.

The daughter of a Wisconsin banker, she had started a dress company,
 Hollywood Patterns, designing inexpensive dresses for working girls,
and then had gone into the art business. A few days later, while he was
lunching with publisher Richard Simon, he met her a second time,
and decided to marry her. He was just starting to build an art
collection and knew very little about painting. He later claimed he
had married her to save one million dollars in sales commissions,
which he probably did. She tried to get him to relax, and soon had
him going to a psychoanalyst. He was lunching with Richard Simon
again when he jumped up and said, "I'm late for my psychoanalyst."

Simon seemed puzzled, and Lasker explained, "I'm doing it to get
rid of all the hate the advertising business has put into me."

It is likely that he had put more hate in advertising business than it had
put into him. Despite the fact that practically all of his close friends
were prominent Jews, such as Bernard Baruch, Anna Rosenberg,
David Sarnoff, the New York publicist Ben Sonnenberg, and Lewis
Strauss of Kuhn, Loeb Company, he rarely hired Jews in his
advertising firm. When he was reproached for this, he merely
smiled, and said, "Look, I went into this firm and took it over. Do
you think I want somebody to do that to me?"

Among his protégés were very successful advertising men such
as Emerson Foote, William Benton and Fairfax Cone, all of whom
were gentiles. Lasker liked to call them his little goyim. He joked
about how he could make them jump when he barked.

In 1942, Lasker, having made a large fortune, decided to close
down Lord and Thomas. His protégés went on to found the firm of
Fairfax Cone and Belding; William Edward, a lawyer, had married
Carla, the daughter of Bernard Gimbel of the department store
fortune. At the wedding, Lasker dourly cited an old Jewish proverb,
"You can't make an omelet from two spoiled eggs." He was proven
right; they got a divorce. His daughter, Mary, married the Chicago
steel tycoon, Leigh Block, of Inland Steel. They amassed a multimillion
dollar art collection. She also became a vice president of
Foote, Cone and Belding. Block's brother Joseph became president
of the Jewish Federation.

Lasker had grown bored with wearing white shirts; he started
the vogue of wearing blue shirts in New York, which became the
hallmark of the advertising profession. He never learned to drive a
car, and had no mechanical skills. After moving to New York, he
begrudged the enormous upkeep of his Lake Forest estate; in 1939
he donated it to the University of Chicago. The trustees promptly
sold it off for building lots; the million dollar mansion went for

Lasker's importance to this narrative is the fact that he and his
cohort, a patent medicine huckster named Elmer Bobst, took the
American Cancer Society, a moribund group in the early 1940s, and
within months built it into a powerful national force. They used all
their techniques for promotion, fund-raising and business
organization to make this group the most powerful force in the new
billion dollar world of cancer treatment, an achievement for which
the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly was extremely grateful. They
summarily dumped a cumbersome organization known as the
Women's Army, which was very decentralized, and placed all the
power of the American Cancer Society in New York. All of its
meetings are held there. They also used their business connections
to bring in a new board of trustees from the biggest names in
banking and industry, charging $100,000 each for the privilege of
serving on the board.

After launching the American Cancer Society as a viable
organization, Lasker himself became ill with cancer. He was
operated on for intestinal cancer in 1950, not knowing that cutting
into a cancer immediately spreads it throughout the body. He died in
1952 at the Harkness Rockefeller Pavilion. Before his death, he had
set up the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, which was to make
Mary Lasker the most powerful woman in American medicine. She
soon controlled a vast empire of grants, foundations, Washington
lobbyists and other organizations. Her most able lieutenant in
achieving this power was the Rockefeller employee, Anna
Rosenberg, who has worked closely with her for years.

Elmer Bobst, who was Lasker's partner in putting the American
Cancer Society over the top, was also a tycoon. Unlike Lasker,
Bobst had come from a poor family, but he also had the born
huckster's mentality, taken from that native American entrepreneur,
P. T. Barnum, who said, "There's a sucker born every minute."

Bobst joined the drug firm of Hoffman LaRoche in 1911, where his
talents as a salesman got him the presidency of the firm. He was
also a shrewd businessman; just after World War I, knowing that
commodity prices were bound to fall, he was shocked to find that
the firm had accumulated huge inventories in the New Jersey
warehouse. He quickly closed a deal with Eastman Kodak to buy
five tons of bromides, a key ingredient not only of analgesics but
also of photographic supplies. He offered the bromides at sixty cents
a pound, ten cents below the market price. Within a few weeks, the
market price had fallen to sixteen cents a pound.

Bobst's great achievement at Hoffman LaRoche was his
advertising campaign for vitamins. It was so successful that he won
the nickname of "the Vitamin King." He made millions of dollars in
the stock market, and he decided to leave Hoffman LaRoche for
greener pastures. In 1944, he called in Cravath, Swaine and Moore,
the lawyers for Kuhn, Loeb Company, to negotiate his terms; they
got him a very favorable settlement of $150,000 the first year and
$60,000 a year until his seventy-fifth birthday. Having made his
fortune in peddling vitamins, he now moved on to the higher-priced
pills, becoming head of Warner-Lambert. This firm's biggest
product was Listerine. Gerald Lambert, no mean huckster himself,
had built Lambert Pharmacal into a giant empire, principally
through his relentless warnings about the perils of "bad breath."

His father had invented a mouthwash, for which he appropriated the
most famous name in medicine, Baron Joseph Lister, the inventor of
antiseptics and asepsis in hospitals. A prominent surgeon, Baron
Lister had operated on Queen Victoria herself, the only time she
submitted to the knife. Gerald Lambert made his name a household
word with full-page advertisements for Listerine. Banner headlines
warned that "Even your best friend won't tell you." Lambert coined
a new word for this plague, halitosis, from the Latin for bad breath.
At the height of the 1920s stock market boom, Gerald Lambert sold
his firm to the Warner Corporation for $25 million, the equivalent of
$500 million in 1980 dollars. The deal was closed in 1928; within a
year, the value of the firm had dropped to $5 million.

The resulting Warner-Lambert Corporation had showed little
growth during the 1930s. Bobst was hired primarily for his
marketing skills, but he soon proved that he was an empire builder,
buying more than fifty additional companies. In an astute move, he
named Albert Driscoll president of the firm. Driscoll had just served
seven years as Governor of New Jersey. As directors, Bobst brought
in the shrewdest brains on Wall Street, Sidney Weinberg of
Goldman Sachs, and Frederick Eberstadt, of Eberstadt and
Company. As director of public relations, he brought in Anna
Rosenberg, who had long been director of labor relations for the
Rockefellers at their primary holding Rockefeller Center. This
meant that Bobst had now established a key Rockefeller connection,
as Anna Rosenberg continued to have a close association with her
former employers.

Because he was the only one who was aware of his ambitious
plans, Bobst had bought heavily into Warner-Lambert stock before
he began his great expansion. As a result, the stock increased many
times in value. He was now the largest stockholder, worth many
millions. Fortune described his seigniorial life style, his vast estates
in New Jersey, his 87 foot yacht at Spring Lake, and his suite at the
Waldorf." In fact, Bobst owned five yachts in succession, each one
larger than the last, and all named Alisa, the last being called Alisa
V. He also married a second time, marrying the Lebanese delegate
to the United Nations. He was chairman of the War Bond drive in
New Jersey during World War II, and became a large contributor to
political campaigns. He thus became a very influential behind the
scenes figure in the Republican Party, so much so that he chose his
own man for the Presidency.

Eisenhower's Secretary of the Treasury, George Humphrey, of
the Rothschild Bank, National City Bank of Cleveland, had been
slated to speak at a fund-raising rally in New Jersey of which Bobst
was chairman. He became ill, and Vice President Richard Nixon
was sent in his place. This began a close relationship between Bobst
and Nixon, which was almost a father-son relationship. Nixon was
dazzled by Bobst's millionaire life style, and he saw to it that the
Bobsts were frequently invited to the White House dinners. In 1957,
Nixon was able to introduce Bobst to the Queen of England at a
White House gathering.

After Nixon's ill-advised, if justified, attack on the press after
his campaign in California, it seemed that his political career was
over. However, Bobst was not about to give up on such a potential
ally. Nixon later fondly recalled the best advice Bobst ever gave
him. Bobst had drawn him aside, during what was a period of great
depression for Nixon, and earnestly told him, "Dick, it's time you
learned the facts of life. You see, there are really only two kinds of
people in the world, the eaters and the eaten. You just have to make
up your mind which group you're going to be in."

At a time when Nixon had little or no prospects, Bobst went to
his attorney, Matt Herold, the senior partner of the Wall Street firm
of Mudge, Rose and Stern. Warner Lambert was their biggest client,
and when Bobst "suggested" to Herold that he bring in Nixon from
California as a partner of the firm, Herold was only too happy to
oblige. With this springboard, Nixon was able to launch his
successful campaign for the Presidency.

The move turned out to be a wise investment all around. After
Nixon won the election, the Republican Governors of the states of
New Jersey, Nebraska, Kentucky, and West Virginia turned over all
of their tax-free bond business to Mudge Rose, giving the firm an
additional million dollars a year of income. In January of 1971,
Mudge Rose appeared before the Justice Department on the matter
of the merger of Warner-Lambert and Parke-Davis, a decision
which meant millions of dollars to Bobst. Attorney General John
Mitchell, also a protégé of Bobst, disqualified himself; his deputy
Attorney General, Richard Kleindienst, then let the merger go
through. These were the only deals which became a matter of public
knowledge; no doubt there were many more. In a brilliant tax move,
Mitchell advised Bobst to donate $11,000,000 to New York
University for the Bobst Library.

In 1973, Bobst had his autobiography published by David
McKay Company in New York. An obvious "puff" job, it was a
glowing account of Bobst's accomplishments, unmarred by any
unfavorable comments. When Bobst died in 1978, no obituary
appeared in the New York Times. This was an amazing circumstance
concerning one of New York's most prominent tycoons. The Times
routinely memorialized even the minor executives of New York
firms. Strangely enough, a public statement about Bobst did appear
in the Times, a memorial eulogy by his longtime friend, Laurance
Rockefeller, the chairman of Sloan Kettering. Rockefeller said, "His
efforts in the fight against cancer earned the sincere gratitude of
cancer patients and researchers as well as the general public."
Perhaps Bobst's real memorial is the label of Listerine, which still
carries the message, "For Bad Breath, insect bites, infectious
dandruff; 26.9% alcohol."

Rockefeller was referring to Bobst's revitalization of the
American Cancer Society. Under his leadership, it had obtained a
new charter on June 23, 1944, and underwent a complete
reorganization. The staff was expanded to 300, and the two
hucksters launched a national campaign to enlist two and a half
million "volunteers" to patrol every foot of the nation in gathering
funds to "fight cancer." Because the orders to engage in this
campaign always came from business tycoons, social leaders and
politicians, the masses had no alternative; they had to obey. The
huckster talents of Bobst and Lasker resulted in the often ludicrous
spectacle of millions of peasants being herded out into the streets in
an annual march to rattle tin cans and beg donations for the Super
Rich. The only campaign to equal it probably was the annual drive
by the Nazi Party in Germany for contributions for the Winterhilfe
campaign. The ACS campaign operated on the same lines. The
millions of "volunteers'' threw themselves into this annual task
because their jobs, their social position, and their families depended
on their willingness to make the sacrifice to the God of Mammon,
which was presently masquerading as "the Ghost of Cancers Past,
and To Come."

The chairman of the American Cancer Society, Clarence D.
Little, had been named to that post in 1929 by the Rockefellers,
longtime associates who had established a laboratory for him at their
summer home on Mt. Desert Island. He seemed to have no interest
in cancer, spending most of his time as president of the American
Birth Control League, the Euthanasia Society, and the Eugenics
Society, the latter being a pet project of the Harriman family. He
admitted that in 1943, the American Cancer Society spent nothing
on research. Little had been president of the University of Michigan,
and now served as Overseer of Harvard University.

Under his leadership, the cancer group had been nothing more than
 a small group of elitists who met occasionally in New York.
Despite its reorganization on a more business like basis, the
American Cancer Society, long after the Little's departure,
continued to pile up a stunning record of non-accomplishment. One
critic, a longtime federal official, publicly stated that it should be
called "the infantile society for national paralysis." However, the
society's inability to find a cure for cancer was hardly accidental.

The Bobst-Lasker influence brought it firmly into the orbit of the
Sloan Kettering Institute, whose motto had long been "Millions for
research, but not one cent for a cure." Charles McCabe, the
irreverent columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote on
September 27, 1971, "You might be wondering if the personnel of
the American Cancer Society, or cancer research foundations, and
other sainted organizations, are truly interested in a cure for cancer.
Or whether they would like a problem which supports them to
continue to exist."

The new Bobst-Lasker board of the American Cancer Society
featured the usual array of Rockefeller cohorts, Anna Rosenberg,
Eric Johnston, longtime head of the Chamber of Commerce and now
head of the Motion Picture Association, a public relations
spokesman for the Hollywood moguls; John Adams, a partner of
Lazard Freres and head of Standard Brands; General William
Donovan, the Wall Street lawyer who was selected by the British
Intelligence Service to head the new Office of Strategic Services,
the nation's spy network; he was later sent to Thailand as U.S.
Ambassador to oversee the operations of the world dope ring;
Emerson Foote, Lasker's advertising protege; Ralph Reed, the
president of American Express Company; Harry von Elm, the super
banker who was president of Manufacturers Trust; and Florence
Mahoney, the multi-million dollar heiress of the Cox newspaper
fortune, and a longtime crony of Mary Lasker.

In 1958, the officers of the American Cancer Society were
Alfred P. Sloan, president; Monroe J. Rathbone, president of
Standard Oil; Mrs. Anna Rosenberg Hoffman of the Rockefeller
Foundation; General Donovan and Eric Johnston. Senator Ralph
Yarborough of Texas, a perennial champion of socialized medicine,
established a 26-member National Panel of Consultants on the
Conquest of Cancer, chaired by Benno Schmidt, head of J. H.
Whitney investment banking firm, other members were Laurance
Rockefeller, Dr. Sidney Farber, former president of the American
Cancer Society, G. Keith Funston, chairman of the Olin munitions
firm, and Mathilde J. Krim, a former Zionist terrorist.

An interesting footnote to history is the revelation of the cozy
relationships which developed between top Nazi officials and the
founders of the Zionist terrorist network, Haganah and the Irgun
Zvai Leumi, in the closing days of the Second World War.

The Zionists were working to drive the British out of Palestine; the Nazis
were also at war with England, which gave birth to the most curious
political alliance of the twentieth century. One of the leading
advocates of working with the Abwehr, German Intelligence, was
one Yitzhak Shamir, now Premier of Israel.

After the war, the Zionists employed many former Nazis to help
set up their military opposition to the British. The leader in this alliance
 was the veteran of the old Stern Gang of terrorists, which was now the
 Irgun Zvai Leumi, none other than Menachem Begin.

 One of Begin's protégés was a young woman named Mathilde J.,
as she was known in terrorist circles. She was born in Switzerland
after her father left Italy because of "poor economic conditions," ~
 no political ideology there. The present Mrs. Krim is described by Current
Biography as a "geneticist" and a "philanthropist." She has been the
resident biologist at the American Cancer Society for many years. In
her younger days, she joined the Irgun Zvai Leumi, marrying a
fellow terrorist in a show of solidarity. She soon became a favorite
of Begin, and divorced her husband.
 It was Begin who was asked by a grinning Mike Wallace
on the program "Sixty Minutes," "Did you really introduce terrorism
into the politics of the Middle East?"

Begin answered emphatically, "Not just the Middle East ~
the whole world.'' He was referring to the worldwide terrorist
operations of Mossad, the Israeli Intelligence group which is
entirely financed by the CIA with American taxpayers' funds.

Mathilde J. then went to work at the Weizmann Institute in
Israel. One day, she was introduced to one of its wealthiest
American directors, the movie mogul Arthur Krim. They were
married, making her an American citizen. Krim has been the chief
lobbyist in Washington for the major film companies for many
years; he is also a principal fund raiser for the Zionist agitprop

As a fund raiser, he was also a close friend of President
Lyndon B. Johnson. Krim and his wife were house guests of
Johnson's at the White House when the Israelis attacked the U.S.
ship of the line, U.S.S. Liberty, killing many of her crew.

When other American ships sent planes to aid the Liberty, immediate
orders were sent from the White House for the planes to turn back.
The Israelis were free to continue their attack for several more hours
in a desperate attempt to sink the Liberty, to destroy the radio
evidence it had gathered that the Israelis had started the Six-Day

Although it is generally believed that Krim issued the orders
for the U.S. planes to turn back, no investigation was ever made.
Johnson is now dead, and they are the only living witnesses in this
horrendous example of high treason from the White House. The
CIA had known for twenty-four hours that an attack was planned
against the Liberty, in the hopes of bringing the U.S. into the war on
the side of Israel; faked evidence had already been planted that the
attack would come from the "Egyptians."

Mathilde Krim is now a director of the Rockefeller Foundation;
she and her husband are directors of the Afro-American Institute.
Arthur Krim has a long record of supporting leftwing causes in New
York, the New York School of Social Research, the Henry Street
Settlement, and the Field Foundation. Krim is chairman of United
Artists (now Orion Films). As personal attorney for Armand
Hammer, whose claim to fame is that he was a friend of the blood
soaked terrorist, Lenin, Krim is also a director of Hammer's two
principal firms, Iowa Beef and Occidental Petroleum. Krim also
served as chairman of the Democratic Finance Committee; he is
chairman of the board of trustees of Columbia University, and
director of the Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation.

Critics noted in 1976 that at least eighteen members of the
American Cancer Society's Board of Directors were executive
officers of banks. ACS spent $114 million that year, but had assets
of $181 million. As of August 31, 1976, 42% of ACS cash and
investments, some $75 million, was being held in banks with which
these officers were affiliated. The 1975 budget of ACS reported that
570 went for administration; the amount allocated for research was
less than the salaries of its 2,900 employees. The American Cancer
Society for all practical purposes controlled the National Cancer
Institute, a government agency.

Former NCI director Frank J. Rauscher became the senior vice president
of ACS, with his salary doubled to $75,000 a year. An ACS spokesman
 admitted that 70% of its 1976 research budget went to "individuals or
institutions" with which its board members were affiliated. Pat McGrady,
who served for twenty-five years as science editor of ACS, told writer Peter
Chowka, "Medicine has become venal, second only to the law. The
ACS slogan, control cancer with a checkup and a check . . . it's
phony, because we are not controlling cancer. That slogan is the
extent of the ACS scientific, medical and clinical savvy. Nobody in
the science and medical departments there is capable of doing real
science. They are wonderful professionals who know how to raise
money. They don't know how to prevent cancer or cure patients;
instead, they close the door to innovative ideas. ACS money goes to
scientists who put on the best show to get grants or who have friends
on the grant-giving panels."

This is probably the most reliable summation of what is done
with your contributions to the American Cancer Society. As we
pointed out earlier, it is the masses giving alms to the Big Rich, who
know how to distribute these funds among themselves, their friends,
and their favorite tax-exempt organizations, which in many cases
are refuges for the more incompetent members of their families.

The ACS directors are drawn from the "best people" in New York, the
jet set, the trendy Park Avenue crowd who were caricatured by
novelist Tom Wolfe as "radical chic." At one time, Black Power was
in; now it is homosexuality and cancer. This group constantly
advertises itself as being obsessed with "compassion and caring,"
which is always done with other people's money. Their own wallets
remain glued to their backsides. This is exemplified by the bleeding
hearts on the national news shows, who nightly regale us with their
version of the homeless, the starving in Africa, or wherever they can
find a photogenic victim with flies crawling on him.

These "journalists," who are paid millions of dollars a year, have never
been known to toss their coins to these victims. In politics, its
morals are exemplified by the fat, aging playboy, Senator Teddy
Kennedy; in Hollywood, by the equally pudgy Elizabeth Taylor.

Mathilde Krim is now the guiding genius behind the newly created
American Foundation for AIDS Research; because of her powerful
Hollywood connections, she was easily able to persuade Elizabeth
Taylor and other stars to raise millions for her pet project. She also
recruited her old friend Mary Lasker as the first board member of
AIDS. Mary Lasker paid the current "advertising genius," Jerry
della Femina, to create a tasteful national ad campaign for the
distribution and use of condoms.

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center continues to be
the most "fashionable" charity among the New York socialites;
certainly it is the most influential. It is listed on the tony Upper East
Side as the "The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer
Center." It has operated a popular thrift shop on Third Avenue for
many years, which is filled with donations from wealthy families.
Like many other young writers and artists, the present writer
purchased his clothes there for years, all of it labeled from the most
expensive shops in New York.

Because "the fight against cancer" is totally controlled by the
Rockefeller Medical Monopoly, grants are routinely awarded which
are nothing more than rip-offs. One wag claims the ACS will award a
research grant only if the recipient signs a paper swearing he will
not find a cure for cancer. Although only the tip of the iceberg has
been revealed, there have been numerous exposes attesting that most
of the "cancer research" is bogus, replete with faked results. In one
of the more publicized incidents, the National Cancer Institute gave
$980,000 to a researcher at Boston University, who was forced to
resign after charges that he had falsified his research data; another
well known incident at the august Memorial Center itself found that
mice were painted different colors in order to "verify" certain cancer
tests. Dr. William Summerlin of Sloan Kettering admitted painting
the mice to make them look as though successful skin grafts had
been done.

The National Bureau of Standards reports that half or more of
the numerical data published by scientists in articles in the Journal is
unusable because there is no evidence that the researchers accurately
measured what they thought they were measuring. Alarmed by these
statistics, officials instituted a survey; 31 authors of scientific
reports were sent questionnaires asking for their raw data. The 21
who replied said that their data had been "lost" or "accidentally
destroyed." What a loss to the research profession!

The reliability of the nation's researchers wilted under a
blistering expose on "Sixty Minutes" on January 17, 1988, under the
title, "The Facts Were Fiction." The subject of the expose was "one
of the leading scientific scholars" in the nation. He had claimed to
have done extensive research on the mentally retarded at a state
institution, where the records clearly showed that he had only
worked on goldfish. The "Sixty Minutes" report estimated that from
ten to thirty per cent of all research projects carried out in the United
States is totally faked, because of the requirements to win the
"grantsmanship" race. "Startling" results must be claimed before
serious consideration is given to requests for funding, which
themselves are hardly niggardly amounts; they often amount to
grants of millions of dollars.

 One scientific scholar who was interviewed on "Sixty Minutes" declared
that "I would think twice before I believe what I read in the medical journals
... it is dishonest, fraudulent information." The moving spirit behind all
this fakery is the unwillingness of the Big Rich to see their profits imperiled by
any genuine advances in medicine. Therefore, the more fake
research that is done, the less chance that a drug now on the market
which is bringing in $100,000,000 a year or more will be knocked
off the market. The wholesale fakery in American research is almost
entirely due to the pressures of the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly
and the drug firms under their control, who routinely present
elaborately faked "tests'' to the Food and Drug Administration to
obtain approval for new products, concealing harmful side effects,
which often include liver and kidney damage, or death. The control
of the universities by the Medical Monopoly creates a breeding
ground for more robotic minions, willing to abase themselves in any
manner for a grant or a job which requires little or no performance.
A lengthy history of faked research is an ideal "Panama" or control
to keep these minions in line.

It is frightening to contemplate that such faked research is
usually the basis for the acceptance or denial of new drugs, while
protecting the Establishment as it continues to reap more profits
from long outmoded and discredited panaceas and procedures. Yet
this is the background, as well as the raison d’être, for President
Reagan's Brave New Budget for 1989, which sets aside $64.6 billion
for "research and development." Although this is only a 4% increase
over 1988, it represents a 52% increase since Reagan took office.
The National Institute of Health budget has doubled to $6.2 billion;
cancer research will receive $1.5 billion, while AIDS is earmarked
for an expenditure of $2 billion. Mathilde Krim must be very happy.

Critics have pointed out that Memorial Sloan Kettering had
done practically no research on the prevention of cancer, only on its
favored modes of "treatment." The basic premise of its researchers,
that the cell is solely responsible for the multiplication of cancer
cells, is probably erroneous; however, it is the basis for all of their
work, including their promotion of chemotherapy. In fact, the cell is
probably reacting to outside infection or pressures, and the fault is
not in the cell. The Sloan Kettering approach dangles the promise of
a "Magic Bullet," which will bring the cell back to a healthy
regimen through medication, or chemotherapy.

The chemotherapy drugs include alkylating agents which actually inhibit
cell growth. They are alkaloids, which hinder cell mitosis or cell division.
 Sloan Kettering also bypasses the possibility of stimulating the immune
system to respond to cancer growth, which is the normal method
which the body uses to fight disease. This institution receives $70
million a year from various tax exempt foundations, including the
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, which means that the American
taxpayer is subsidizing all of this research. One hundred and thirty
full time scientists are doing research at the Center; all 345
physicians at the Center are also heavily involved in research. And
what are the results of all this activity? A continued reliance on the
now antiquated "cut, slash and burn" techniques still redolent of the
"mad doctor" practices of the late Doctors J. Marvin Sims and James
Ewing, dead these many years. While wedded to the ritual
observance of these expensive, painful and futile procedures, the
"Scientists" at Sloan Kettering maintain a resolute phalanx of
opinion denouncing various holistic procedures which rely on diet,
nutrition and vitamins.

Dr. Muriel Shimkin of the National Institute of Health, wrote in
the Institute's official primer on cancer in 1973 that "Treatment of
cancer by diet alone is in the realm of quackery." Yet the American
Cancer Society, faced with a growing amount of evidence to the
contrary, issued a Special Report in 1984 advising the following
"1. Avoid obesity.
2. Cut down total fat intake to 30% of total calories.
3. Eat more high fiber foods.
 4. Eat foods rich in vitamins A and C.
 5. Include cruciferous vegetables in the diet, greens, etc.
6. Be moderate in the consumption of alcohol.
7. Moderate consumption of salt-cured, smoked and nitrite cured

 This is a very sensible regimen; however, it has not been
emphasized by the ACS or the NIH, nor do many doctors include
this advice in their recommendations to their patients.
The American Cancer Society has always had one bugaboo,
laetrile. Dr. Lewis Thomas, longtime head of Sloan Kettering, told
the American Cancer Society Science Writers Seminar on April 2,
1975, "Laetrile had absolutely no value in combating cancer."

This contradicted the work done by the Center's own scientists, whose
real results had been suppressed. Dr. Thomas stated again in 1975,
"Laetrile has been shown, after two years of tests, to be worthless in
fighting cancer." Dr. Robert Good, president of Sloan Kettering had
also stated in January 1974, "At this moment there is no evidence
that laetrile has an effect on cancer." His own scientists had
completed studies which showed the opposite; two researchers, Dr.
Lloyd Schoen and Dr. Elizabeth Srockett, both working
independently at the Center, had found that pineapple enzymes
combined with Laetrile resulted in total tumor regression in 50% of
their experiments on 34 experimental animals there.
One of the most famous beneficiaries of the laetrile treatment
was the actor, Steve McQueen. He had been given up by his
physicians as a terminal case when he tried laetrile. He was
responding well until a physician persuaded him to undergo surgery
on a tumor; he then died on the operating table of an embolism. The
Establishment proclaimed that this proved the laetrile treatment was

Harold Manner, at the Cancer Center, also found a combination
of laetrile, enzymes and vitamin A had a similar positive effect on
mice with cancer. Dr. Kinematsu Suiguira, who had been at
Memorial since 1917, after earlier working on cancer at the
Harriman Institute, had also produced striking results proving that
laetrile was effective on cancer in experimental animals. On June
13, 1973, the results of cancer tests using laetrile by Dr. Kinematsu
Suiguira over a period of nine months stated, "The results clearly
show that Amygdalin significantly inhibits the appearance of lung
metastasis in mice.'' Although this had been announced by the Sloan
Kettering Institute, on January 10, 1974, Dr. Robert Good, president
of Sloan Kettering, denounced the news of the findings as "a
premature leak." Dr. Ralph Moss, who was then public relations
director at the Cancer Center, considered Suiguira's work a genuine
breakthrough and a welcome departure from Sloan Kettering's
singular lack of success in its cancer work. On November 17, 1977,
he held a press conference at the Hilton Hotel in New York. Instead
of receiving praise for publicizing the success at the Center, he was
fired the next day. He later wrote an excellent book, "The Cancer
Syndrome" which exposes many of the strange events at Sloan
Kettering. His book is very factual, and is written without rancour
against those who had thrown him out.

Because Elmer Bobst had played the crucial role in making it
possible for Nixon to become president, he had little trouble in
persuading Nixon to authorize a new and expensive "war on
cancer." At Bobst's instigation, Nixon signed the National Cancer
Act in 1971, which transformed the National Cancer Institute at
Bethesda into a new monolithic government bureaucracy. During
the next fifteen years, NCA was to spend more than ten billion
dollars funding various cancer programs, none of which had any
effect in curing or preventing cancer. In 1955, NCI had established a
Chemotherapy National Service Center with a $25 million grant, to
promote the use of chemotherapy.

 A full page advertisement in the New York Times, December 9, 1969,
 proclaimed that "Cancer Cure is Near at Hand." The story promised that a
 cancer cure by 1976 was a "distinct possibility." The chairman of
the President's National Cancer panel submitted a report admitting
that the first five years of the National Cancer Program was a failure;
the cancer toll had risen during each year of its operation.
By 1985, the annual toll was 485,000 victims.

More than 43,000 people deluged Nixon with demands that the
NCI test laetrile. Benno Schmidt then chose a panel of scientists to
make the tests; all of them were known to be fanatically opposed to
laetrile. When he asked for the scientific results, he said, "I couldn't
get anybody to show me his work." Had their tests shown laetrile to
be worthless, they would have been only too happy to publish their
findings. The battle against laetrile continued on a nationwide
campaign. One lobbyist, Charles Ofso, had a fulltime job in
Sacramento, California, lobbying against laetrile; he was paid
$25,000 a year. Drug store proprietors who displayed books
favorable to laetrile were informed that no member of the AMA
would henceforth send them prescriptions until these books were
removed. Since 1963, the Federal Trade Commission has brought
pressure against publishers of pro-laetrile books. Government
statutes not only prohibit the interstate shipment of laetrile, but even
of books which recommend it!

After chiropractic, laetrile was the most important target of the
criminal syndicalist operation of the Coordinating Conference of
Health Information, the conspiracy launched by the American
Cancer Society, the American Medical Association, and the Food
and Drug Administration. It continued to be mostly a war of
censorship and intimidation, whose goal was to prevent any public
discussion of laetrile. TV shows which scheduled forums on laetrile,
to discuss both sides of the controversy, were suddenly cancelled.
Tests showing the effectiveness of laetrile were suppressed; they
never reached the public. The desperation of the campaign against
laetrile was solely financial; it represented the greatest threat to the
profits of the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly. Hospital treatment for
cancer cost many thousands of dollars. Despite the Cancer Center's
$70 million a year for "research," its Memorial Hospital charged
$470 a day for a bed; a ten day stay would be nearly $5,000, with
another $4,000 charged for treatment and physician care.

The record of the "cut, slash and burn" treatments were
routinely distorted and falsified. Dr. Hardin James, professor of
medical physics at the University of California at Berkeley,
addressed the ACS Science Writers Conference in 1969; he revealed
that the worst cancer cases were usually termed "inoperable" and
deliberately left untreated. The published cancer studies of cures or
remissions were the "sweetheart" cases, which had a high rate of
recovery. Nevertheless, Dr. James reported, "the life expectancy of
these untreated cases was actually greater than the life expectancy of
those who were treated."

Despite Dr. James' revelations, the hospitals continued to pick
and choose which cases of cancer they would treat; even the
esteemed Cancer Center noted that its policy is not to accept some
terminal cases; the patients are politely referred to a death hospice
where they can die. In fact, such turnaways may have been a boon to
the dying, as the treatment they would have undergone at Memorial
Hospital would have made Count Dracula drool with envy.

Dr. Ralph Moss revealed some of the prevalent surgical techniques
there. He reported that cancer of the head and neck was treated by
an operation called the "commando" after a combat technique used
by commandoes in the Second World War; it called for the entire
removal of the jaw. Pancreatic cancer was treated by removal of
most of the area organs near the infected gland; the survival rate,
despite this drastic treatment, remained the same, a mere three per
cent. In 1948, Dr. Alex Brunschweig invented an operation called
"total exenteration," which called for the removal of the rectum,
stomach, bladder, liver, ureter, all internal reproductive organs, the
pelvic floor and wall, pancreas, spleen, colon and many blood
vessels. Dr. Brunschweig himself called this hollowing out
technique "a brutal and cruel procedure," (New York Times, August
8, 1969).

The epitome of the "mad doctor" operations was known as a
hemeocorporectomy. Originated by Dr. Theodore Miller at the
Cancer Center, it involved cutting off everything below the pelvis.
These techniques are more than reminiscent of certain procedures
used by Communist revolutionaries in Latin America; the Sandinista
revolutionaries were inspired by their leaders poetic dictum that
"Liberty is not conquered with flowers, but with bullets, and that is
why we use the VEST CUT, THE GOURD CUT, and the
BLOOMERS CUT." In the vest cut, the victim's head was lopped
off with a machete and his arms were severed at the shoulders; in
the gourd cut, the victim had the top of his head lopped off; the
bloomers cut called for hacking both legs off at the knees, leaving
the victim to bleed to death.

The records of the "mad doctor" syndrome would fill several
books. One special Congressional report followed some 31 "human
guinea pig" experiments over a thirty year period. The Committee,
chaired by Woodward D. Markey, D.Ma., gave his comment that his
findings "shock the conscience and represent a black mark on the
history of medical research.'' The report showed that from 1945 to
1947, in the Manhattan Project, scientists routinely injected eighteen
patients with plutonium; from 1961 to 1965 at MIT, twenty elderly
patients were injected with or fed radium or thorium.

From 1946 to 1947 at the University of Rochester, six patients who had
good kidneys were injected with uranium salts "to determine the
concentration that might produce kidney injury"; from 1953 to 1957
at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, twelve patients were
injected with uranium to determine the dosage that would cause
kidney injury. From 1963 to 1971, 67 inmates of Oregon State
Prison and 64 inmates of Washington State Prison had X-rays on
their testes to determine the effect of radiation on human fertility.

From 1963 to 1965 at the National Reactor Test Station of the
Atomic Energy Commission in Idaho, radioactive iodine was
purposely released on seven separate occasions, and seven human
subjects purposely drank milk from cows grazed on iodine
contaminated land. From 1961 to 1963 at the University of Chicago
and Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, 102 human subjects
were fed fallout from the Nevada test site, with radioactive
simulated fallout particles, and solutions of radioactive cesium and
strontium. During the late 1950s, twelve patients at Presbyterian and
Montefiore Hospitals in New York were injected with radioactive
calcium and strontium cancer particles. Oregon State Prison gave
radium doses of 600 roentgens in single exposures on the
reproductive organs, when the safe dose was 5 roentgens per year.
For a decade, scientists were fed radioactive materials so that other
scientists could calibrate their instruments for measuring these

Whatever kicks the mad doctors may have gotten from these
experiments, the cancer rate remained the same, or increased.
Congressman Wydner pointed out that "Information has been
brought to my attention showing that twenty years ago, in 1957, the
same proportion of cancer cases, one in three, was being cured. This
raises the question why, despite all the money and effort devoted to
cancer research ... the cure rate has remained the same." Despite
such criticism, the NCI continued to waste billions of dollars on
worthless programs.

 It was reported that George R. Pettit of the University of Arizona
at Tempe had spent six years and $100,000 extricating chemical
s from a quarter of a million butterflies as part of a NCI program;
 there were no identifiable results. Other researchers continued to find
the war on cancer a profitable war.

The Saturday Review reported in its issue of December 2, 1961 that
a prominent financial supporter of the American Cancer Society in
Massachusetts was upset when he could never find the state director
in his office. He was finally told that the director, James V. Lavin,
was probably in his other office across the street, where he ran a
private fund-raising company, the James C. Lavin Company; he
represented a select group of clients. Stung by this revelation, the
executive vice president of the American Cancer Society, Lane W.
Adams, wrote a letter to Saturday Review, June 6, 1962 as follows:
"The arrangement by which James C. Lavin operated private fund
raising while serving as executive director of the Massachusetts
American Cancer Society was known by the National Society."

Adams said that Lavin's salary was $17,000, plus another ten
thousand a year paid to his company. Saul Naglin of the Lavin
Company was the controller of the Massachusetts branch of ACS
for a number of years. The yearly overhead of the Massachusetts
branch was $548,000 in 1960, with total income of $1.1 million.
Adam's letter also boasted that "We helped support the research
of Dr. Sterling Schwartz injecting human leukemia brain extract in
human subjects, Dr. Chester Southam injecting live cancer cells
beneath the skin of human beings." Adams who had been with the
American Cancer Society since 1948, now heads the national offices
at 90 Park Avenue, in New York. He received the Albert Lasker
Public Service Award from ACS; he is also vice president of Zion
First National Bank in Salt Lake City, director of Paul Revere
Investors, and the Energy Fund. Lavin's attorney, James Mountzos,
was secretary of the Massachusetts ACS and also served on the
national board.

In 1978, the American Cancer Society had $140 million income
of which less than 30% was spent on cancer research, with 56%
going to cover administrative costs. The Society had $200 million in
investments. Before the Bobst-Lasker takeover in 1944, its income
had never gone past $600,000 a year; the following year, it raised $5
million. In 1982, Allan Sonnenshein published a warning,
"Watchout; the American Cancer Society May Be Hazardous To
Your Health!''

In 1955, in a power move, ACS took over all research from the
National Research Council, executing a brilliant coup by
creating a new Science Advisory Council to represent American
hospitals and universities. Dr. Samuel Epstein, in his book, "The
Politics of Cancer," noted that "apart from being uninvolved in
cancer prevention, other than, to a limited extent, tobacco, senior
(ACS) officials have developed for the society a reputation of being
indifferent, if not actively hostile, to regulatory needs for the
prevention of exposure to carcinogenic chemicals in the general
environment and in the workplace." Epstein reported that the ACS
opposed regulation of such potential carcinogens as Red Dye #2,
TRIS, and DES. ACS refused to support the Clean Water Act, and
blamed victims for cancer.

EPA had reported that indoor pollutants cause six thousand cancer
deaths a year and that 38 million Americans drink water with unsafe
levels of lead and other toxic matter, including chlorine by-products.
DES, diethylstilbestrol, was widely used from the 1940s to the early 1970s
 as a synthetic female hormone which was routinely prescribed by doctors
 to prevent miscarriage; it was not tested for possible side effects, nor did
anyone know what they were. Finally, a student at the University of
Chicago Medical Center showed that not only was it ineffective in
preventing miscarriage, but it might have side effects. This finding
failed to halt its use. In 1972, its long-term effects began to appear,
cancer of the breast, with vaginal cancer in daughters of those
patients treated with DES, as well as other genital malformations
and abnormalities. It was also linked to liver damage.

Lee Edson, in "The Cancer Ripoff" notes that 74 private
companies near the National Institute of Health in Bethesda were
charging the government 144% overhead plus 9% profit to perform
virus research. Nixon had placed his protégé, Dr. Frank Rauscher, in
charge of NCI; he was a virologist who began to promote
chemotherapy as the answer to cancer. Dr. Rauscher claimed that
the NCI chemotherapy program "has provided effective treatment
for cancer patients all over this country, and the world." This claim
was promptly challenged by Dean Burk, head of the cyclochemical
section of the NCI, pointing out that "virtually all of the
chemotherapeutic agents now approved by the FDA for use or
testing in human cancer patients are highly toxic to markedly
immuno-suppressive and highly carcinogenic in rats and mice,
themselves producing cancers in a wide variety of body organs."
Despite this criticism, Rauscher was then named head of the
President's National Cancer Advisory Board.

The side effects of chemotherapy have been graphically
described by many of its victims, the terrible nausea, loss of hair,
sudden weight loss and many other adverse factors. A book by M.
Morra, "Choices; Realistic Alternatives in Cancer Treatment, Avon,
1980, reports favorably on all of the Establishment's cut, slash and
burn techniques. Morra mentions diet only in its relation to nausea
from chemotherapy; he soberly advises that you "let someone else
do the cooking so that the smell of food won't nauseate you." Morra
gave no advice on how to serve food without smell.

Since Memorial Sloan Kettering's first benefactor, James
Ewing, dosed himself to death with radium in 1913, it has remained
the treatment of choice at this Cancer Center. The New York Times
noted July 4, 1979 that 70% of all cancer patients at Memorial
receive radiation treatments, at a charge of $500,000 a year. It now
performs 11,000 surgical procedures and 65,000 radium treatments
a year. In 1980, Memorial bought all new equipment for its radium
treatment, an expenditure of $4.5 million. However, radium
treatment continues to be a horrifying treatment in its effects.

In 1937, Dr. Percy Furnivall, a prominent surgeon at London
Hospital, diagnosed his own tumor as cancer. On February 26, 1938,
he published in the British Medical Journal an impassioned plea as
a result of his experience, "Tragedies from radium treatment are of
frequent occurrence, and the publicity given to radium treatment of
cancer is a disgrace to the Minister of Health and the vested interests
which charge fantastic prices for this body-destroying substance. I
do not wish my worst enemy the prolonged hell I have been through
with radium neuritis and myalgia over six months . This account of
my own case is a plea for a very careful consideration of all the
factors before deciding which is the most suitable form of
treatment." He died shortly thereafter, yet his plea had no effect on
the continued use of radium treatments for cancer.

The late Senator Hubert Humphrey, who died of cancer, is
often cited as an advertisement for radium treatment. Jane Brody in
her New York Times book, "You Can Fight Cancer and Win,"
coauthored with American Cancer Society vice-president Holleb in
1977, cites Hubert Humphrey as "a famous beneficiary of modern
radiotherapy." She glosses over the fact that "this famous
beneficiary" was totally disillusioned with radium therapy before his
death. In 1973 he was found to have cancer of the bladder; he was
treated by X ray, and in 1976, his physician Dr. Dabney Jarman,
triumphantly reported that "As far as we are concerned, the Senator
is cured.'' (New York Times, October 6, 1976). Humphrey continued
to wither away, undergoing more chemotherapy, until he flatly
refused to go back to Memorial Cancer Center for more treatment.
Quoted in the Daily News, January 14, 1978, he called
chemotherapy "bottled death."

The Washington Post in February 1988 ran a story "Cancer
Treatment Toxic." "We are spared very little as we see healthy
looking people turned before our eyes into shaking, shivering,
nauseated bundles of misery . . . The successes, although few, have
been dramatic."

One factor which has been consistently ignored in the
development of cancer is the role of unusual stress. We all face daily
stresses in our lives, with which we cope as best we can. However,
unusual and prolonged stress places a greater strain on our system
than we may be able to cope with. This is particularly true today,
when sinister hidden forces poison all our communications with
their shadowy propaganda, while assuring us that they stand only for
"compassion and caring." A writer named Morley Roberts advanced
a startling theory of cancer in 1926. An English scientist, Roberts
belonged to no known school of thought, and because of his
independence, his works have been largely ignored. His theory of
Organic Materialism advances the following points:

"Malignancy and Evolution: Malignancy is the diversion of
energy from high differentiation into the proliferation of low-grade
epithelia which can endure irritation but only differentiate with
difficulty." Epithelioma, a common form of cancer, is the
multiplication of cells of the simplest type in the body, which, like
those of the outer skin, the epidermis, are comparably short-lived
and unable to differentiate. An organism afflicted with cancer is
unable to differentiate to meet the conditions of its existence,
because its energy has been diverted into multiplying low-grade
cells. Cancer is the proliferation of low grade cell colonies in the
organism. They migrate through the body seeking a place for
themselves, although they have no function. Wherever they gather,
they rob the higher grade cells of nourishment, where they are
gathered into cell colonies as the organs of the body. These organs
are choked off and starve, eventually causing the death of the
organism. The modern State is a malignant organism dedicated to
the proliferation of lower grade units at the expense of higher, more
differentiated types. The more productive organisms are heavily
taxed to support large numbers of nonproductive and poorly
differentiated growths. The steadily increasing strain on the
productive members of the State causes their premature death, just
as the proliferation of the lower grade cells in the cancerous
organism kills the higher differentiated cells. Roberts posits the
question, "May we go further and even say that the common
tendency to malignancy is the result of sociology refinements which
ask for a higher role for epithelia?"

Morley Roberts posited a theory of the development of the
organism, in which other cells began to gather around the execretory
cell colonies of primitive organisms, and subsequently these cell
colonies began to give off secretions which were poisonous to the
organism. In self-defense, the organism threw up fortifications, or
other cell colonies, around the vicious presence, which, in time,
became part of the organism, and whose secretions became useful to
it. Roberts calls this a theory of the development of the organs of the

The role of nutrition in cancer has yet to be seriously
researched by the billion dollar boondoggles of the National Cancer
Institute and the Rockefeller. Yet in 1887, an Albany, New York
physician, Ephraim Cutter, M.D. wrote a book called "Diet in
Cancer," in which he stated, "Cancer is a disease of nutrition."

Hippocrates coined the word diaitia, meaning "a way of life"
which is what a diet is. In the classical world, "meat" meant the
daily fare, and referred to oats, barley, rye, wheat, fruit and nuts.
The confusion as to the meaning of the word meat occurs in
translations of the Bible. In Genesis, it is stated, "Behold, I have
given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the
earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat." Hippocrates' advice to physicians was
that they should first find out what food is given to a patient, and
who gives it.

The ongoing controversy over laetrile revolves around the fact
that it is a substance called a nitriloside. In 1952, Dr. Ernest A.
Krebs, Jr., a biochemist, discovered that cancer is caused by a
deficiency of nitrilosides, which occur naturally in over twelve
hundred foods and plants. Animals usually instinctively seek out
grasses and other plants which contain nitrilosides, yet when
humans do the same thing they are attacked by federal agents. Some
researchers believe that the adverse effects of carcinogens, radiation
and sunburn on humans is caused by the fact that they are suffering
from poor nutrition. These nutrition experts argue that coal tar does
not cause cancer; and that the sun does not cause skin cancer.

Rather, these conditions arise from the sun's effect upon the skin of
a person who is consuming too many sugars, fats and dairy
products. The sun's rays create an acidic condition which causes
these substances to rise to the surface of the skin, causing an
irritation which can then become catalyst. It is noted that people in
tropical countries, who are exposed to strong sunlight, rarely get
skin cancer because they eat little meat and fats. It was also
discovered after the atomic bombing of Japanese civilians that those
who were still eating their traditional diet of brown rice, sea salt and
miso vegetables, were little damaged by the same amount of atomic
radiation which killed those who were eating a more modern diet of
fats and meat.

Some experts note that they can detect cancer by the peculiar
smell of a person in its early stages, the smell of decomposition.
Others note that cancer can be detected by a greenish cast to the
skin. The epidemic of prostate cancer among American men seems
to be the result of a diet of rich foods, with frequent ingestion of
eggs, meat and dairy products, and baked goods made with refined
flour. A suggested remedy is a diet of fruit and rice, the same diet
which is recommended to lower blood pressure and which has been
featured at Duke University for many years. Beef is said to be
particularly dangerous for prostate and colon cancer. Nutritionists
believe that cancer represents a reverse evolutionary process, in
which cells decompose or change back to a more primordial
vegetable type of life. This corresponds in some ways with the
theories of Morley Roberts.

It is notable that only four percent of the nations medical
schools offer a course in nutrition. This reflects the Rockefeller
Medical Monopoly's obsession with drugs and its commitment to
the allopathic school of medicine, as opposed to homeopathic or
holistic medicine.

Nobel Prize winner James Watson declared at a cancer
symposium at MIT that "the American public has been sold a nasty
bill of goods about cancer ... a soporific orgy," as reported in the
New York Times March 9, 1975. In January of 1975, Dr. Charles C.
Edwards, a researcher, wrote to the Secretary of HEW that the war
on cancer was politically motivated and was based on spending
money. The prominent French oncologist, Dr. Lucien Israel, said,
"Radium is an unproven method in many cases . . . indeed, there
have been no conclusive trials" on radiation therapy. Israel terms it
"a palliative for relief of pain, etc., temporary in nature." He also
points out that "the medical community has been thrown into
confusion by recent studies which have shown that metastases may
be more frequent in cases that have received radiation." In short, the
radiation increases the spread of cancer. It has long been known that
cutting into a tumor causes it to spread throughout the body. The
exploratory operation to see if you have cancer usually guarantees
that it will be fatal.

Nevertheless, the American Cancer Society continues to back
all of the losing methods of treating cancer. For twenty years, it has
patently repeated its famous Cancer's Seven Warning Signals, which
ignore chemicals in the environment and discounts FDA warnings
about coal tar and hair dyes. In 1976, the ACS released a press
communication, "Urgent Message; Mammography; Benefits and
Risks." Dr. John Bailar of the Harvard School of Public Health, and
editor of the prestigious NCI Cancer Journal, was horrified. He
wrote a letter to the acting director of the NCI, Dr. Guy Newell, "I
have just become aware of a problem that has the seeds of a major
disaster . . . The Urgent Message itself is plain hog-wash, the
statement is seriously faulty, and hence represents a grave danger to
that bulk of women who should avoid mammography. ''

Nevertheless, the ACS flyer went to every hospital in New York,
and to 15,000 physicians. Despite the known risks of exposing
women to repeated X rays, the ACS still emphasizes annual
mammographies as one of its most vaunted techniques for
"controlling" cancer. Jane Brody's book, "You Can Fight Cancer
and Win," recommends this and many other ACS goals.
The American Cancer Society also stands firmly behind radical
mastectomy, the total removal of the breast in cases of women's
breast cancer. This technique is frowned upon as unusually brutal
and ineffective; it has long been abandoned in most European
countries, including England, France and the Scandinavian countries
and neighboring Canada. In 1975, when Rose Kuttner published her
definitive work, "Breast Cancer" which was critical of radical
mastectomy, the ACS refused to list or recommend it.

It was Elmer Bobst's goal to make the National Cancer Institute
"autonomous," much as the Federal Reserve System is
"autonomous." He was able to achieve this goal because of his
longstanding personal connection with President Richard Nixon. As
the mastermind of the American Cancer Society, he really intended
it to become "autonomous" from Washington influence, while
making it completely subservient to the American Cancer Society
from New York. Rep. David Obey, Democrat, Wisconsin, noted that
"the American Cancer Society wants to keep the National Cancer
Institute strong in bankroll and weak in staff so that it can direct its
spending without too much interference." A very astute observation.
One of its directors, is Mary Lasker, who, thirty-six years after
Albeit Lasker's death, is still described by Washington observers as
the most powerful woman in American medicine. The National
Institute of Health bought the Visitation Convent in Bethesda from
the Catholic Church for $4.4 million; it now houses the Mary Lasker
Center. Through her access to funding, the ACS maintains fulltime
lobbyists in Washington, headed by Col. Luke Quinn, and aided by
Mike Gorman. The Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, with
Washington lobbyist Lloyd Cutler, also works with Mary Lasker.
Whatever else may be said of the American Cancer Society.

There can be no doubt that it remains well insulated against reality. A
leading Washington reporter, Daniel S. Greenberg, wrote in the
Columbia Journalism Review in 1975 that cancer rates for most
types of cancer had been static since the 1950s; some rates actually
declined, probably because the use of toxic chemotherapy increased
the death rate. One researcher told Greenberg there had been little
improvement since 1945. Dr. Frank Rauscher challenged Greenberg
at the 1975 ACS Science Writers Seminar, claiming that these
figures were out of date; however, when the new figures were
released, they upheld Greenberg's findings.

This rings hollowly against the annual promises of "breakthroughs"
when the two and a half million "volunteers" swarm across America
shaking their tin cans and begging for the rich. They have been making
these same promises and raising the same amounts of money, or more, for
almost fifty years. Laurance Rockefeller noted in Reader's Digest,
February 1957 an exultant comment, "There is, for the first time, a
scent of ultimate victory in the air," as he described "progress
against cancer." Sloan Kettering director C. P. Dusty Rhodes was
quoted in the Denver Post, October 3, 1953, "I am convinced that in
the next decade, or maybe more, we will have a chemical as
effective against cancer as sulfaniolmides and penicillin are against
bacterial infection."

Well, maybe more. In 1956, Dr. Wendell F. Stanley, a Nobel Prize Winner
 reported in an address to the annual AMA convention,
 "Viruses are the prime cause of most types of cancer."
Nothing more has been heard on this subject in thirty years.

One physician, Dr. Cecil Pitard, was informed that he had
terminal cancer and that he had only a few weeks to live. The
Knoxville, Tennessee physician was diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic
as having lymphoma. Lymphatic cancer results because the body is
no longer able to detoxify or cleanse itself. Tonsillectomies often
initiate a deterioration of the lymphatic system, resulting in lymph
gland inflammation, and eventually, lymphatic cancer. With nothing
to lose, Dr. Pitard experimented on himself with the anti-flu
bacterial antigen, staphage lysate and sodium butyrate, a fatty acid
food found in milk and butter. He soon found that he had been
completely cured. Nevertheless, the Cancer Establishment ignored
his report, and became even more vociferous in its campaign against
"unproven remedies." In most cases like Dr. Pitard's the cancer
profiteers sneer that it probably was misdiagnosed and he never had
cancer, or that he had a "spontaneous remission," which is their
most oft repeated response. It would seem that they would show
some interest in how to obtain a "spontaneous remission," because
they have now been talking about it for half a century, yet we have
heard nothing from the $70 million a year research program at Sloan
Kettering about spontaneous remission.

After Dr. Ralph Moss had been fired from Sloan Kettering for
revealing the positive results of laetrile experiments, he made public
the fact that the Institute was sitting on many other results of
successful treatment of cancer, including more than one thousand
positive cases of response to the Coley treatment since 1906.

Moss reported that Dr. James Ewing, "Coley's nemesis and arch rival,
turned Memorial Hospital into a medical branch of the radium
trust." Dr. William E. Koch, professor of physiology at Detroit
Medical College and the University of Michigan, presaged
free radical pathology treatment with the development of
Glyoxylide, which stimulated the body to oxidate toxins. Although
his treatment was never scientifically refuted, Koch, who began
oxidation studies in 1915 and used this treatment since 1918, was
persecuted for sixteen years by the Medical Monopoly. He was
finally driven out of the country, and died in Brazil in 1967.

The FDA had started to harass him in 1920; the Wayne County Medical
Society formed a "Cancer Committee" of doctors in 1923 who
condemned Koch's treatment. His stimulation of cell oxidation
treatment is by carefully planned diet which cleansed the system, yet
this proven treatment is still denounced today by the cancer
profiteers as "quackery." Koch tried to continue his work in Mexico
and Brazil, but the FDA refused to abandon their pursuit. He was
prosecuted in 1942 and 1946; the FDA finally obtained a permanent
junction against the Koch treatment in 1950. Several physicians who
had successfully treated cancer with the Koch treatment were
expelled from the medical society. It was still allowable to kill a
patient, but it was unforgivable to cure him.

Another independent physician, Dr. Max Gerson, discovered
that a vegetarian diet, with raw fruits and vegetables, and no salt,
cured migraine and lupus. He continued his studies until he found
that detoxification of the body could cure cancer. In 1958, he
published his findings in his book, "A Cancer Therapy,"
emphasizing a low fat diet, no salt and a minimum of protein. In
1964, he was invited to testify before a Senate Subcommittee, which
produced a 227 page report, document number 89471. The copies of
this report were never distributed by the Senate; it received no
coverage in medical journals, and Dr. Gerson never received one
cent from any charitable organization such as the American Cancer
Society to either prove or disprove his findings, even though these
groups claimed they were "researching" a cure for cancer.

Another famous case was that of Harry Hoxsey, who used a
herbal treatment, based upon Indian remedies, for cancer for thirty-five
years. In a well-publicized court battle, Hoxsey won a libel suit
against Morris Fishbein; the good doctor was forced to admit under
cross examination that he, the most famous doctor in the United
States, had never practiced medicine one day in his life.

Dr. Robert E. Lincoln discovered the bacterioplage method of
conquering cancer, in which viruses parasitically attach and destroy
specific bacteria. He received national attention when he cured the
son of Senator Charles Tobey with this method. Tobey was
astounded to learn that Dr. Lincoln has been expelled from the
Massachusetts Medical Society because he was curing people of

He conducted a Congressional investigation, in which his
special counsel from the Department of Justice, Benedict Fitzgerald,
wrote, April 28, 1953, "The alleged machinations of Dr. J. J. Moore
(for the past ten years the treasurer of American Medical
Association) could involve the AMA and others in a conspiracy of
alarming proportions . . . behind and over all this is the weirdest
conglomeration of corrupt motives, intrigues, selfishness, jealousy,
obstruction and conspiracy I have ever seen. My investigation to
date should convince this Committee that a conspiracy does exist to
stop the free flow and use of drugs in interstate commerce which
allegedly (have) solid therapeutic value. Public and private funds
have been thrown around like confetti at a country fair to close up
and destroy clinics, hospitals and science research laboratories
which do not conform to the viewpoint of medical associations.
How long will the American people take this?"

Thirty-five years, they are still taking it. The outcome of the
Tobey Hearings is instructive. Senator Tobey died suddenly of a
heart attack, as happens in Washington when a politician treads on
dangerous ground. He was succeeded on the Committee by Senator
John Bricker of Ohio. Bricker, for many years, was considered to be
a dedicated conservative by millions of Americans. In reality, he
was the lawyer for a number of large drug manufacturers and
bankers, the ultimate establishment figure. He promptly fired
Special Counsel Benedict Fitzgerald; the Hearings were then closed

Dr. Robert Lincoln was bold enough to sue the Massachusetts
Medical Society for libel; he also died before the case could come to

Dr. Andrew C. Ivy, vice president of the University of Illinois,
began to use a preparation which he called Krebiozen. He succeeded
in curing cancer with it; the AMA promptly published a report on
Krebiozen which ruled that it was "of no benefit." A 289 day trial
resulted, in which Dr. Ivy was cleared of all counts against him.

Dr. Peter de Marco, a graduate of Hahnemann Medical School,
successfully treated over 800 patients with PVY, procaine polyvinyl
pyrrolidone; his license to practice medicine in New Jersey was

A favorite recommendation of the American Cancer Society is
the "Pap" test for cancer, despite its many drawbacks. Insight
magazine, January 11, 1988, criticized many diagnostic laboratories
for doing sloppy work, quoting the Wall Street Journal of
November 1987 that "Pap smears have a false negative rate of from
20-40%; a false negative means death by cancer." Stung by this
exposure of a method which the ACS had frenetically promoted for
many years, Dr. Harmon J. Eyre, president of the American Cancer
Society, called a joint press conference of the ACS, the AMA, and
the NCI, to renew their joint recommendation that all women from
20 to 60 have an annual Pap smear. At this press conference
reported by AP, January 20, 1988, Eyre was quoted, "A main reason
for calling the press conference was an attempt to counter confusion
about the value of the Pap test in light of recent publicity about the
percentage of false negative results from some labs." Although he
went on record with unqualified endorsements of the Pap tests, Eyre
offered no answer to the problem of false negative reports or the
terrible threat which it posed to many women.

Some women's groups are becoming alerted to the fact that the
Medical Monopoly is needlessly condemning many women to
death. The Washington Post noted, February 16, 1988, a report of a
Women's Health Trial, in which 300 women demanded low fat tests
in which fat in the diet would be reduced from 40% to 20%, the
purpose being to diminish breast cancer. They asked for funding
from the NCI, but the Board of Scientific Counselors of NCI refused
to advance any funding for the project. The women's spokesman
pointed out that "NCI is committed to breast cancer control rather
than prevention."

What would the most powerful woman in American medicine
have said about this? Mary Lasker has been content to play the part
of the gracious Lady Bountiful with the money her husband earned
as the nation's most famous huckster. At the American Cancer
Society's Science Writers Seminars, which are held each year in
some exotic hotel during the harsh winter months, Science noted
May 18, 1973 that these spring seminars, held annually since 1949,
always are held in warm climates, free junkets for science editors at
big circulation newspapers and magazines. Science pointed out that
these seminars, which cost ACS about $25,000, generate about 300
favorable news stories and result in ACS raising about $85 million
in extra donations. This is probably one of the best investments

In 1957, novelist Han Suyin, wearing an exquisite fur coat,
delivered an enthusiastic report to the Science writers about how
much good the chemical manufacturers have done for the health of
our citizens. In all fairness to Han, Love Canal had not been
discovered in 1957. The seminar met recently (1973) at the fabulous
Rio Rico Inn near Tucson, Arizona. Not only are all expenses paid
for the complaisant writers, but an extra treat, a Happy Hour at the
bar at the end of each "work day," makes certain that the journalists
float in to dinner in a very jovial mood. The Happy Hour is paid for
by the gracious Mary Lasker. Saturday Review noted April 10,
1965, the ACS had an unusually effective public relations
department. The secret of public relations is to obtain free space in
major publications, instead of buying advertising. The Lasker
connection also ensures that major New York agencies such as
McCann Erickson, prepare advertising campaigns for ACS at no

It is ironic that Albert Lasker, the co-creator of the American
Cancer Society as we know it, and its subsidiary creature, the
National Cancer Institute, should have built much of his fortune on
his promotion of cigarette smoking. After his death from cancer, the
American Cancer Society reluctantly came to the conclusion that
"smoking is bad for your health." The mounting death toll from lung
cancer forced the cigarette companies to consider alternatives; one
of these was filters. On January 1, 1954, Kent cigarettes released an
ad to 80 newspapers that AMA tests had proved the Kent filters
were the most efficient in removing cigarette tar. Because this
"proof was on a par with most other AMA claims, the AMA was
compelled to protest to Lorillard, the manufacturer.

Time magazine commented, April 12, 1954, "The usually soporific A
MA barred advertisements for Kent cigarettes." When the Surgeon General
released his 1964 report on the harmful effects of cigarette smoking,
it panicked the industry, even though it had long been heralded by
previous studies. In June, 1954, Dr. Daniel Horn and Edward Cuyler
Hammond presented a report to the AMA convention, linking
smoking and lung cancer. Horn and Hammond headed the statistical
department at the ACS. American Tobacco, one of Lasker's
principal holdings, dropped five points in one day after this
presentation. Hammond was a well known epidemiologist who had
served as a consultant to NIH, the U.S. Navy, USAF and the
Brookhaven Lab. He was a vice president of ACS and director of its
research. Although he had conducted extensive research on the
effects of smoking, he steadfastly refused to share this material with
other organizations. In 1971, he received an invitation to join a
panel of scientists to discuss smoking; he refused, stating that it had
been the policy of ACS since 1952 not to share data with other
researchers. Current Biography reported in 1957 that Hammond
smoked four packs of cigarettes a day; his wife smoked three packs
a day They both died of lung cancer.

Despite the ACS revelations, the tobacco interests, which were
closely linked to the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly, fought a
determined rearguard action against the lung cancer campaign. One
of Washington's best connected lobbyists, Patricia Firestone
Chatham, widow of Representative R. T. Chatham, the chairman of
Chatham Mills textile firm, stalled the placement of the warning on
cigarette packages, "Smoking May Be Dangerous To Your Health,"
for five years, from 1964 to 1969. She lives in a two million dollar
mansion in Georgetown, the former James Forrestal home.

The furor over lung cancer and smoking ignores a pertinent
fact, that primitive tribes have been smoking tobacco for thousands
of years, with no disagreeable after effects. In Virginia, origin of
this writer, Indians were smoking tobacco when Captain John Smith
landed at Jamestown. Dr. Richard Passey, a researcher at London's
Chester Beattie Research Institute, conducted twenty years of
research on the tobacco problem. He found no significant link
between the traditionally air dried tobacco and lung cancer.

However, the American and English tobacco industries, which are
dominated by the Rothschilds, use sugar in their tobacco, for a
sweetened, sugar dried effect. England, uses 17% sugar, the United
States 10%. England has the highest lung cancer rate in the world.

Dr. Passey concluded that the addition of sugar to tobacco creates a
carcinogenic substance in the nicotine tar; in air dried tobacco, this
carcinogen is not activated. He found no resulting lung cancer in the
Soviet Union, China and Taiwan, all of which produce air-dried

Esquire magazine featured a lengthy article on the work of the
Janker Clinic in Bonn, Germany, finding that this clinic has treated
76,000 cancer cases since 1936, with full or partial remission in
70% of their patients. The Esquire reporter was astounded to learn
that "the National Cancer Institute refuses to use Janker Clinic
isophosphamide, A. Mulsin, Wobe enzymes and other successful
Janker techniques because they refused to use sufficient dosage. The
American Cancer Society is even more rigid. It prides itself on
keeping the Janker techniques out of the United States."

The Esquire reporter went on to complain that "The American Cancer
Society has become a major part of the problem. It eschews
sponsorship of chemical and research innovation and instead goes in
for propaganda (cigarettes are harmful, the Seven Danger Signals,
celebrity radio and TV spots) and it virtually condemns and
suppresses unorthodox methods which, incidentally, it does not even
trouble itself to investigate thoroughly."

The reporter did not know that the American Cancer Society
has a vested interest in the established forms of cancer treatment; for
instance, it holds a fifty per cent ownership of the patent rights of 5
FU, (5 flourouracil), one the toxic drugs now in vogue as an
"acceptable" medication for cancer. 5FU and a later development 5-
4-FU, are produced by Hoffman LaRoche Laboratories.

The Knight Ridder News Service reported in 1978 that the ACS
refused to take a position on suspected pesticides which caused
cancer. The ACS board and its allied organization, Sloan Kettering,
have many members who are heads of the largest chemical firms in
the United States. The war against pollution will win no adherents
there. ACS was asked to take a position on other dangerous
substances, such as Red Dye #2, the fire-retardant TRIS, used in
children's clothing (it has since been banned), and forms of synthetic
estrogen. Yet ACS again refused to state its position on these
substances. To counter its baneful influence, the Committee for
Freedom of Choice in Medicine planned to file an action in 1984
before the Permanent Committee on Human Rights at the United
Nations, charging that the American medical establishment was in
violation of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and
the International Human Rights Agreement of 1966. Its prepared
statement noted that "Americans have been needlessly slaughtered
and criminalized because a host of useful products, medicine and
metabolic nutritional approaches in medicine have been crushed by
vested interests.'' The Committee termed the present situation "a

The failure to reduce the death rate from cancer is a grim
indictment of the insurmountable obstacles which the ACS has
placed in the path of a viable approach to this problem. John Bailar
of the Harvard School of Public Health, addressing the American
Association for the Advancement of Science in 19867, pointed out
that "The government's fifteen year old national cancer program has
not lowered the death rate for major forms of cancer and should
therefore be considered a failure. It has not produced the results it
was supposed to produce." Bailar was well qualified to make this
observation; he had been editor of the Journal for NCI for twenty five
years. He was supported by a fellow member of the faculty of
the School of Public Health, Dr. John Cairns, who reported that, "In
the past twenty years, cancer has increased; there have been no
significant gains against cancer since the 1950s.''

Dr. Hardin James addressed the ACS Panel in 1969. A
professor of medical physics at the University of California at
Berkely, he stated that his studies had proven conclusively that
untreated cancer victims actually live up to four times longer than
treated individuals. "For a typical type of cancer, people who
refused treatment live an average of twelve and a half years. Those
who accepted surgery and other kinds of treatment lived an average
of only three years. I attribute this to the traumatic effect of surgery
on the body's natural defense mechanism. The body has a natural
type of defense against every type of cancer."

In February, 1988, the National Cancer Institute released its
definitive report, summarizing the "war against cancer." It reported
that over the past thirty-five years, both the overall incidence and
death rates from cancer have increased, despite "advances" in
detection and treatment." Washington Post, February 9, 1988. The
problem may be that, just as in other wars we have engaged in the
twentieth century, too many of those "on our side" are actually
working for the enemy.
