Thugs, Drugs and the War on Bugs
by Brad Case, DC
In this first book of a planned “Why We’re Sick” series, Dr. Case focuses primarily on the shortcomings of conventional medicine. He points to several conflicts of interest between “Big Pharma” and the US Food and Drug Administration and relates how pharmaceutical companies court doctors with everything from free samples to free seminars in exotic locations.
The book — subtitled “How the Natural Healthcare Revolution Will Lead Us Past Greed, Ego, and Scary Germs” — is also a powerful indictment of the American Medical Association, which he says protects and enriches its members by driving out the alternative competition.
“The medical/pharmaceutical establishment’s historical preoccupation with symptom suppression and disease management is a major factor in why we’re so unhealthy,” Case says. “In fact, the Journal of the American Medical Association admits that Western medicine kills 280,000 people per year, more than all other accidental deaths combined. They further admit that these reported deaths only represent about 5 percent of the total problem! Are these the people you want in charge of your health?”
In addition to the statistical, historical, and scientific perspectives, Case discusses some of the methods and treatments employed by holistic healers, his own experiences, and an overview of alternative therapies.
Case is a chiropractor, naturopath, and director of the Holistic Healing Center in Prunedale, Calif. A graduate of National University, he holds certificates in Applied Kinesiology, Nutrition Response Testing, Total Body Modification and others. He has been in practice since 1994.
