Boom: thousands of medical studies found to be useless

Boom: thousands of medical studies found to be useless

Memo to “medical bloggers” living in mommy’s basement

I’m talking about little defenders of consensus science, bloggers who love and adore every official pronouncement that comes down the pipeline from medical journals and illustrious doctors.

Dear Bloggers: Thousands of published studies you cite and praise are wrong, useless, irrelevant, deceptive—and the medical journals know it, and they’re doing nothing useful about it.

The issue? Cell lines. These cells are crucial for lab research on the toxicity of medical drugs, and the production of proteins. Knowing exactly which cell lines are being studied is absolutely necessary.

And therein lies the gigantic problem. has the bombshell story (“Thousands of studies used the wrong cells, and journals are doing nothing,” July 21, 2016):

“Recent estimates suggest that between 20 percent and 36 percent of cell lines scientists use are contaminated or misidentified — passing off as human tissue cells that in fact come from pigs, rats, or mice, or in which the desired human cell is tainted with unknown others. But despite knowing about the issue for at least 35 years, the vast majority of journals have yet to put any kind of disclaimer on the thousands of studies affected.”

“One cell line involved are the so-called HeLa cells. These cancerous cervical cells — named for Henrietta Lacks, from whom they were first cultured in the early 1950s — are ubiquitous in labs, proliferate wildly — and, it turns out, contaminate all manner of cells with which they come into contact. Two other lines in particular, HEp-2 and INT 407, are now known to have been contaminated with HeLa cells, meaning scientists who thought they were working on HEp-2 and INT 407 were in fact likely experimenting on HeLa cells.”

“Christopher Korch, a geneticist at the University of Colorado, has studied the issue. According to Korch, nearly 5,800 articles in 1,182 journals may have confused HeLa for HEp-2; another 1,336 articles in 271 journals may have mixed up HeLa with INT 407. Together, the 7,000-plus papers have been cited roughly 214,000 times, Science reported last year.”

“And that’s just two cell lines. All told, more than 400 cell lines either lack evidence of origin or have become cross-contaminated with human or other animal cells at some point in their laboratory lineage. Cell lines are often chosen for their ability to reproduce and be bred for long periods of time, so they’re hardy buggers that can move around a lab if they end up on a researcher’s gloves, for example. ‘It’s astonishingly easy for cell lines to become contaminated,’ wrote Amanda Capes-Davis, chair of the International Cell Line Authentication Committee, in a guest post for Retraction Watch. ‘When cells are first placed into culture, they usually pass through a period of time when there is little or no growth, before a cell line emerges. A single cell introduced from elsewhere during that time can outgrow the original culture without anyone being aware of the change in identity’.”

Getting the picture?

HUGE numbers of published studies are based on knowing which cells are being used and tested. And much of the time, the researchers don’t know. They pretend they do, but they don’t.

Their work is completely unreliable.

Everyone involved (for decades) looks the other way.

It’s the secret no one wants to talk about.

Thousands and thousands and thousands of medical studies are useless, and their conclusions are unfounded, and turn out to be random.

This is like saying, “Well, we built all those buildings in the city, but the concrete we used was probably cardboard. Let’s not talk about it. Let’s just wait and see what happens.”

Millions of patients who are taking drugs are guinea pigs. Researchers originally tested the toxicity of drugs on cells they assumed were relevant, but they were wrong. They said the drugs were safe, but they were working with cells that had no bearing on safety.

This is one reason why, on July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, a highly respected public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, could conclude, in the Journal of the American Association, that FDA approved medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans every year—which becomes a MILLION deaths per decade.

The original researchers on those drugs pretended they knew what they were doing.


Everything I’m describing and citing in this article?

The FDA knows about it.

The CDC knows about it.

The World Health Organization knows.

National health departments all over the world know.

Medical schools know.

Many doctors know.

Many, many researchers know.

Many hospital executives know.

All pharmaceutical executives know.

Many mainstream medical reporters know.

All medical journals know.

But they continue to promote life-destroying fake news.

Blog that.

    Another problem with the in vitro cell studies is the context-less feature, of attempting to use a single cell type. In vivo, cells of any particular special type, be they neurones, muscle cells, liver cells, immune cells of various types, etc are never alone. In vivo, cells of any particular type are always in a context with other cell types, of various sorts. They are contacting, communicating, and interacting, affecting each other, and other cell types are affecting the cells of interest. The in vitro single cell type studies lose this feature, and so aren’t directly applicable to the real in vivo activity. That’s not to say that the in vitro cell studies are all bad, it is simply to say that the results are special cases, that may have nothing to do with the real world. Similar considerations occur in the in vitro biochemical assays, that are even more restricted than the in vitro cell assays.

    Check out How the Biologist Bureauc-rats see Global Population ,

    And then here this same Biologist who said Earth has reached its Human carrying Capacity talk about making GM Insects to wipe out ZIKA Virus , ,

    Monsanto to Genetically modify Life on Earth , This story is by the very Liberal Mother Jones, ,

    So if they are questioning this then it’s worth questioning because at the same time the Liberal Fact Checking site Snopes is calling this topic False, and Snopes is VERY protective of Monsanto so why is that ? ,

    And Why is Congress Protecting Monsanto ??? , so 2 liberal activists contradicting each other is worth noting !!!!!!

    And we are to trust the same Bureaucracy that sees the world as Over populated ,,,, HA !!! read this from the Washington Post 13 years ago , Tempe, AZ: I’ve heard that researchers are playing around with honeybees. Will my honey still be safe to eat if the honeybees are genetically modified?

    Michael Fernandez: Yes, scientists are attempting to genetically engineer honeybees to resist parasites and diseases and protect them from pesticides. It would be FDA’s responsibility to ensure that honey from GM honeybees would be safe for consumers.

    Terrible . Like the fed . Until the curtain is pulled back and exposes the truth we the people will keep being played. With Fukushima meltdowns added to the scenarios , I see a dark road ahead .


  4. About 50% of the drugs that are approved appear to have such serious side effects that most of them are taken off the market again within five years. Still everyone, including doctors, think that drugs have been properly tested for safety before being approved. The pharmaceutical industry knows that real safety testing first happens when many thousands of people take the drug. They also admit that, but doctors don’t notice it. They just want to print prescriptions, because it’s all they can do.

    The Rockefellers are the only group that could piss away a $Billion dollars in research and come up with irrelevant info and no cures! Their stranglehold over education and research is total and needs to be broken up.

    They ordered the horrific genocidal bombing of Dresden because it was the naturalpathic capital of the world, already curing cancer!

  6. Christine Hickey says:

    The Holistic and Integrative physicians, and those doing honest research (cancer), are dying mysteriously for attempting to expose and inform people of the extreme danger (vaccines) or found cures without the use of toxic treatment (cancer). Documentaries are coming out despite the real possibility of being murdered for doing an interview. Slowly the news is reaching the public. People fear hospitals and are losing trust in medicine, pharmaceuticals, and so on…all the while the 1% who have been cashing in for decades have turned to violence to protect the status quo they have fed to a trusting public through ingenious marketing. Have you noticed how much is being exposed? There is a war going on for the soul of our nation, for our very lives…freedom vs. tyranny. There is a movement happening. I pray. I am on the side of the truth of God.

    So, the majority of the research done in the last 35-years, need to be done AGAIN, RIGHT this time….. Actually scratch that. NEW health model. The healer gets pain monthly as long as you stay well…..prevention focused model.

    • trevor123698 says:

      wrong. the entire base of their ideas needs to be reversed. They are trained to invert the truth, and they have no idea.

  8. For that see into the future, Jon, even cell lines are “redundant”, elementary “symptoms” giving little or no indication of real “root causes”.

    Until medical science can traverse the quantum layer effectively, we will be “as apes”.

    Oh sorry, of course that what “we are” (or, “some” of us).

    That quantum layer frightens scientists, Jon.

    It does so because it spurns materialism; SPURNS IT, I say.

    It didn’t matter what cell lines they used after 1930.
    They KNEW you all already had Epstein Borreliosis AIDS.
    That makes them all criminals committing Crimes Against Humanity.

    This man’s work supports your conclusions: Dr. John Ioannidis featured below. Thank you for calling attention to this issue!
