★★★★★"A highly readable and accurate book, looking into all sides of modern medicineand using references and quotations from reputable sources ... Eye openers such as human guinea pigs, medical fraud, political ambitions thatsupersede the health of people, the suppressing of cancer cures, the toxins invaccinations for young children, and the over prescribing of certainprescription drugs. And as is typical of the Morcans, they do not back onetheory or another, but do tell the reader to take back control of personalhealth and do research."
-J.B. DiNizo (author of 'Comings and Goings')
★★★★★"The authors help you be pro-active rather than being reactive and justswallowing the next pill; submitting to the next knife; accepting what isoffered rather than evaluating it for yourself. Patient: you can help to healyourself, your family, if you open your eyes to how the current "system" works,not just allegedly for you, but often to your detriment. That is the message ofthis important expose offered here. A must read."

From the Author
This book is part of The Underground Knowledge Series by James& Lance Morcan. In it, they raise some very important questions concerningthe state of modern medicine today and the major players in the highlyprofitable medical sector. Questions that certainly need to be brought out intothe open and discussed with politicians and administrators who often hidebehind closed doors.
While it would be nice to think none of the negative issues raised inthis book are true, my suspicions are that, sadly, this is not the case.
In my own career as a pharmacist spanning 40 years, I have seen manyexamples of patients falling through the cracks in the health system as adirect result of health providers focusing on high patient turnover on a'fee-for-service' basis with no guarantee of results.
On top of this, all too often health professionals have to work withinsystems created by politicians and administrators that allow for zero directresponsibility for patient outcomes. In fact, it is interesting to considerthat, despite the millions of dollars invested in research, we have fewmedicines that actually cure patientsin the real sense of the word.
Sadly, for many doctors, 'cure' means 'a quick fix,' often puttingpatients on a medicine for the rest of their lives with the possibility ofadverse side effects, and no guarantee of a positive outcome. In light of this,there is no hiding the huge influence drug companies have on the practice ofmedicine which has stalled finding real cures.
The health system is more about the ambulance at the bottom of a cliffthan a fence at the top. What we need, I believe, is a focus on real cures andprevention of disease with a strong focus on the body (healthy lifestyle), mindand spirit.
I am sure people want to take more responsibility for their health, butoften do not know where to start. Equally, some health professionals do nottake too kindly to patients who want to be involved in decisions about theirtreatment.
The Morcans highlight the tendency to label holistic as quackery - an ironic description when youconsider holistic practitioners tend to focus on dealing with the causes ofdisease rather than just treating symptoms with medicines.
I am excited that more doctors today are practicing functionalmedicine, which has a lot in common with a holistic approach. Incidentally, Iencourage people to spell holistic 'wholistic' to emphasise the whole (big)picture.
Serious questions need to be asked about a health 'system' in whichpoliticians are often reluctant to invest money in long term, preventative measures.Measures that may take years to show a return on investment. Instead, they tendto focus on short term tangible things like spending more money to reducewaiting surgical waiting lists (to win votes) instead of dealing with the longterm underlying causes, such as obesity, that are plaguing our world.

Excerpts from the Introduction chapter:
Our purpose in writing this book is not to alarm, even though some ofthe despicable acts committed by medical professionals exposed in the comingpages are indeed alarming. Rather, our intention is to arm readers with"underground knowledge" about the medical system, the major players in thatsystem and their many associates. Once you are aware of certain nefarioustrends in modern healthcare, you will be able to spot those trends a mile offand thereby protect yourself and your loves ones from harm, or from being inconveniencedat the very least.
As well as exposing corruption, we wish to enlighten those readers whoare not already aware that there are long-standing and rather convincing claimsof alternative remedies for so-called incurableillnesses. These professed cures, it seems, are either being withheld orblocked by multinational drug companies and/or rigid medical academia. Havingresearched alternative treatments, we are convinced at least some of thesereally do cure so-called incurable illnesses, but are being suppressed from thepublic as they are unpatentable (aka unprofitable).
Keep in mind most illnesses and diseases labeled incurable are usually only described as such within mainstreammedicine in the West. When you consider the number and variety of medical andalternative health treatments and systems available around the world -including traditional Chinese (TCM) and Indian (Ayurveda) andnumerous others - "incurable" is possibly a state of mind, or a misnomer even,and there is in all likelihood an existing cure for every known medicalailment. A cure awaiting discovery byWestern medical professionals.
No matter what your state of health is now - even if you are poorly or,heaven forbid, extremely ill - you can build and improve your health.Remember, where there's life there is always hope...so never give up!

James and Lance Morcan have taken the brave step in confronting established medical doctrines and practises . The core message is honest and simple; Know what you are putting in your mouth and understand that in a capitalist society not all people will necessarily have your interests at heart. Great reading..
I have to address the statement that we have undeniable evidence that vaccines eradicated diptheria, rubella, smallpox (and polio, though it's coming back.) The vaccines' efficacy in reducing the numbers of infections has not been shown. The diseases were already on their way out because of better hygiene, nutrition, etc. These graphs illustrate the history. http://vaxtruth.org/2011/09/proof-that-vaccines-did-not-save-us/
Obviously, profit is the underlying cornerstone of capitalism, but day by day the question arises as to how much profit, at what cost, is acceptable.
I am currently absolutely pleased with my doctors—heart surgeon, GP, eye surgeon, and gastroenterologist—I truly couldn't ask for more professional or caring individuals who are there for me, literally in life saving moments. Previous to them, a misdiagnosis of cold weather asthma, when it was a serious heart condition where my life nearly ended in my driveway, was, obviously, not a high point of experience.
To assure ability to pay for their services of the above dedicated people, besides Medicare, I pay high health insurance costs; have a retiree pharmacy plan, etc.
Those things being said in respect to those who so deserve it, I am quite well aware of serious problems in the health care industry, not only from my own physical problems, but from care taking for terminal patients.
When I look at the costs of medications, prior to my pharmacy plan kicking in, I know, without doubt, that without the insurance, there is no possible way I could afford the prescriptions; nor could I, without the health insurance, even imagine paying for the hospital, doctor, ambulance, and yes, even chopper ride to the emergency room. The cost of just the first heart attack visit to the ER and surgery was more than the market value of my home! This unrelenting attack on “Obamacare” is sickening, waged by those who can afford health care even without insurance. When one hospital visit can literally indenture you and your family for life, it is more than obvious that we have a serious problem.
Medications, as so well addressed by the Morcans, pose their own predicaments. One for cholesterol physically disabled me, caused serious pain. This particular drug has been under litigation for years, and is still being sold. When I read through the list of ingredients the Morcans provided in vaccinations, it read as a list of toxic poisons we would never even consider even having in our homes, all rolled into one injection to keep our children—healthy? The ultimate oxymoron. One has to ask is it necessary to include these toxins which seem scraped off the floor of some abattoir that has been left smoldering in our Louisiana heat and humidity for decades before being harvested. Are they there to be less costly fillers? Is there any acceptable reason for the used?
Is it righteous business to change some simple ingredient in a medication to label it as 'new, improved, and super effective' and charge an absurd amount for it? Or to do that to present a “new” drug when it is just a redo of one under litigation?
Kickbacks, grants, travel, lecture fees, vacations—are these acceptable and how much do they impact on the care and medications doctors prescribe?
Just how does the fact that medications from plants can't be patented impact R&D, motivation, profits, attacks on alternate medicine?
Does big pharma, do doctors, hospitals, rely too much on maintenance, reduction of symptoms, rather than cures? How would they make money if patients came in and were cured?
Lance and James Morcan present you with questions, professional opinions, insights that you need to consider on many levels before you submit to a surgery, fill a prescription, choose a doctor. Millions are spent on advertising medications that will allegedly help you with ailments, yet with the concomitant “possible side effects” of anything from rashes, liver and kidney problems, strokes, lymphomas (notice lack of the “c” word), multiple hours of arousal—the lists go on at length. There are serious moral implications in pushing medicines with such extreme “side effects” when there is, as the Morcans point out, the temptation of doctors taking kick backs for prescribing medications.
The authors help you be pro-active rather than being reactive and just swallowing the next pill; submitting to the next knife; accepting what is offered rather than evaluating it for yourself.
Alternative medicine is explored and the question is raised:
How many plants are being unnecessarily synthesized and sold over the counter as wonder drugs to an unsuspecting public? Why can't we use natural “medicines” like quinine bark instead of chemically produced one—perhaps because you can't patent plants, and thus so limit profits? What if the real plant is better at curing?
The Morcans further address our children's health and how so many are being drugged to “calm” them, to cope with ADD for which many have never really been tested. Perhaps we should be looking at the curricula that are tuned to the test; to endless regurgitation of “covered” materials with no room for what I call the Three C's: Compassion, Communication, and Creativity. This “assembly line” education as I have been calling it for decades needs to be addressed, changed, to inspire young people to learn without drugs to “keep them in line,” “to help them.” This book explores the drugs they are being given; the socio-economics of drugging children; the reasons provided for so doing.
Patient: you can help to heal yourself, your family, if you open your eyes to how the current “system” works, not just allegedly for you, but often to your detriment. That is the message of this important expose offered here. And do ask questions about your medications, treatments, and also about whether cures have been suppressed by pharmaceutical companies, or maybe even governments. Consider the financial losses for medical treatments if there was a simple cure for cancer. Parkinsons, heart disease, diabetes, etc.
A must read, for yourself, for your family, for a truly acceptable first steps to a so needed cradle to grave universal health care system—and that should include the legislators who need to be reminded big time that they work for you, not corporations.
Once again this hard hitting, and seemingly tireless, father and son team ask you to ask the hard questions—questions they so terrifically introduced in their stirring Orphan Trilogy on this topic and so many others to spark thought and exchange of ideas. Do join them on Goodreads to join the discussions! They give all due credit to the hundreds of thousands of those involved in medicine who truly care about your health. As in all else, politics, profits, religion, greed, and a hundred other factors infiltrate the medical profession. The bottom line, the cliché, as usual is to follow the money and also to find out what you are agreeing to make part of your life and well being.
And while you are exploring, researching, ask the all so important question: Why does the US not have cradle to grave insurance for all when it would not impoverish the country? Why are we agreeing to pay thousands a year out of pocket for insurance, for co-pays, when other countries provide this decent, civilized care? What are we discussing with our doctors about nutrition, GMO's, fertilizers, pesticides? Read along with the Morcan men as they raise questions to which you need answers about those things, about alternative medical treatments, supplements. Traditional drugs don't get approved by the FDA unless they seemingly do their appointed jobs, but why are we so accepting of lines of “possible side effects” that can be life threatening, or in the case of one drug, possibly lead to “promiscuity.” Just what every parent wants for their child.
Would drug companies use humans as guinea pigs for drugs—a serious question also raised by the Morcans.
To be well, choose well. This is a great book to get you started to asking the important questions.
The authors' reveal some despicable acts committed by medical professionals that are alarming and arms readers with "underground Knowledge" about the medical system, the mayor players in that system and their associates. As well as exposing corruption this book also enlightens readers who are not already aware that there are long-standing and convincing claims of alternative remedies for so called incurable diseases that are being withheld by multinational drug companies and medical academia as they are deemed unprofitable. The authors' also illustrate their point that they suspect there are plants, vitamins and minerals out there that are safer, more effective and cheaper than the toxic, synthesized alternatives that are being developed and marketed by the pharmaceutical companies.
