at some point we all get on a plane

If the Quinsam Medical Clinic doctors were pilots,
no one would fly.

We all work hard.  We all have goals and objectives for ourselves and our families.  We all live in a complex world and at some point, we all get on a plane.  We do so trusting that the pilot knows how to operate the aircraft safely. 

Not that long ago people commonly purchased “flight insurance” before venturing onto a plane.  This was bad for business and the airlines developed a culture of safety.  

Boeing reengineered the 737 MAX in order to install fuel-saving engines.  The engines had to be mounted higher on the wings which changed the flight characteristics and a system to automatically respond was installed.

The 737 Max crashed because Boeing did not tell the pilots about this system and when sensors failed to work properly the system drove the plane into the ground.

The Boeing culture of safety failed due to competitive forces and marketing but there was a swift correction and the Boeing 737 Max has been grounded all around the world. 

Allopathic Evidence Based Medicine is a system of regulatory control, publication bias, fraudulent research, influential practitioners, and compartmentalized information.

You need to buy medical error insurance.  
Trust me!

A disinformation system designed to deliberately deceive physicians and their patients.  The system works!  And so does Lipitor!  That’s the problem, Lipitor lowers cholesterol by up to 60% along with a pile of stuff your brain and body really need.

Between 2005 and 2008 Pfizer spent $260 million dollars on the Dr. Jarvik marketing campaigns advertising Lipitor (Atorvastatin).  Everything in the marketing was a lie. In 2008 the FDA made them stop the marketing campaign. Pfizer just started another campaign.

Dr. Jarvik is NOT a medical doctor. 
Dr. Jarvik was NOT taking Lipitor.
Lipitor does NOT reduce the risk of heart attack by 36%.
Lipitor is NOT 1% better than a placebo.
Pfizer did NOT stop making the pills.
Doctors did NOT stop selling them!

Placebos do not have adverse side effects
Lipitor is 1% better than nothing

The main thrust of Pfizer’s 2005 Maximum Allowable Dose sales campaign was to persuade doctors to prescribe the maximum allowable dose of Lipitor based on the Pfizer funded Treating New Targets (TNT) trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. - Marcia Angell

Doctors have been deliberately misinformed for generations. They do not seem to understand that and as a result AVOIDABLE physician errors are the third leading cause of death.

Prescription errors are the leading medical error. 

I have statin induced dementia. If you give me a list of 10 words, I can remember 3.  You need Medical Error Insurance before you go to the Quinsam Medical Clinic to see a doctor, so do your kids… trust me.

They told me to write things down.  Did I already say that?

If the Quinsam Medical Clinic doctors were pilots, no one would fly.
