The high priests of the medical/industrial complex church continue to collect millions for treatments that don't work and continue to ignore the evidence of the treatments that do work and would not be profitable.
The blind worshippers of this church are the ones that will suffer.

How many "anecdotes" does it take: "I ate it, I had pain. I stopped eating it, the pain went away. I ate it, I had pain again. I stopped eating it, the pain went away again. Whenever I eat it, I have pain. And whenever I stop eating it, the pain goes away." How many people have to have that experience in order for it to constitute as evidence of a cause and effect relationship? How many people have to have the experience of taking a drug and still having pain, in order for there to be evidence that there is NO cause and effect relationship?

The blind worshippers will always believe the teachings of the high priests, regardless of what an actual human experiences. And they will be the ones that will suffer.

Open minded logical thinking people will base their decisions on the reality based evidence of what is working in actual people, in the reality of living life day to day, and they will be the ones that will find healing
