Medical Breakthroughs Are a Ruse
Dr. John Ioannidis, a physician-researcher at the University of Ioannina, Greece, claims that up to 90 percent of published medical research that doctors rely on when treating patients is flawed.
Dr. John Ioannidis' claim, that up to 90 percent of published medical research is flawed, has yielded valuable insight into the controversial methods of the research industry. "Research is expensive and scientists fund it by competing for grants that provide funding for two to three years. Research productivity is measured in terms of numbers and quality of research papers published. The most prestigious journals reject up to 90 per cent of papers submitted to them. A successful scientific career depends on regularly winning research grants and publishing papers in prestigious journals. This is a high-pressure game studded with temptations to cut corners."

- Recent studies suggests that the keto diet might be an effective tool for treating depression, and clearing up so-called "brain fog," though scientists caution more research is necessary before it can be recommended as a treatment.
- Any experiments with the keto diet are best done in conjunction with a doctor, considering some people face problems when transitioning to the low-carb diet.
It's up to us humans to re-humanize our world. An economy that prioritizes growth and profits over humanity has led to digital platforms that "strip the topsoil" of human behavior, whole industries, and the planet, giving less and less back. And only we can save us.
- It's an all-hands-on-deck moment in the arc of civilization.
- Everyone has a choice: Do you want to try to earn enough money to insulate yourself from the world you're creating— or do you want to make the world a place you don't have to insulate yourself from?
