If you have read The Real Anthony Fauci then you will know the stranglehold that the pharmaceutical industry now have on medical research. Almost 60% of all biomedical research across the globe is now funded by three institutions: National Institutes of Health, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Wellcome Trust, all of whom are heavily invested in the pharmaceutical industry.
This creates a culture where investor interests override research needs, and where researchers who agree to the orthodoxy of their funders guarantee further funding for their work. Those who do not, face loss of funding and cancellation of research work. Read more at The grand impact of the Gates Foundation. Dr Pierre Kory explains the phenomenon well with specific regard to the ivermectin scandal, for example in his presentation to the International Covid Summit in the European Parliament in May 2023.
Ethical Medical Research
Independent medical research undertaken in poorer nations is performed at great personal expense for the scientists involved. They do so out of a sense of ethics, justice and humanity, following the four foundational values of medical research: respect for human beings, research merit and integrity, justice, and beneficence. When powerful money is involved these values are often abandoned.
Quality Medical Research
A group of scientists at University KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa, have undertaken medical research resulting in a series of three review papers describing the ways in which the Covid-19 vaccines can cause harm. The papers are ready for publication in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals, so we know their work has been rigorous and passes muster.
Because their work is detailed, they exceed the standard journal word limit, which requires an additional article processing cost, charged per page, which they cannot afford. The total needed is 55,000 South African Rand, which is in the vicinity of NZ$4,800. They therefore hope to crowdfund the money needed so that their vital work can be shared with the world.
Donating to Independent Medical Research
At a time when research standards and public health outcomes are threatened by power and profits, independent medical research is a jewel to be treasured. This is the start of the much spoken-about parallel systems we need in order to build a better way for humanity.
