This is a rant about some agencies I rely on for information. Unfortunately.
Being that I am neither a doctor, nor the son of a doctor, I rely quite heavily on the medical opinions of those more qualified than me to evaluate products that I use and/or endorse.
I don't know that I would have written an article like this even a few short years ago. But I think I need to state my position on this whole issue of government regulating bodies regarding medical procedures and pharmaceuticals.
Because, quite frankly....
my eyes have been opened in the last few years to how we need to trust but verify.
The reason I feel I need to let my readers know where I stand on this is because I rely quite heavily on "expert sources" for my information on my reviews. And often, the data I draw from is from the NIH (National Institutes of Health) database. But the reality is...
The shit show we've seen in the last couple years regarding the push for mass vaccinations with mRNA technologies has really made me see the money and politics behind the drug industry.
I want people to know that when I rely on data from the NIH database, it's not that I simply believe it because the NIH says it's true.
I believe the sources they present for studies after I have reviewed the articles in depth, and have determined that the facts they present are truly backed up by valid data from studies.
In other words, I don't believe the results of the studies simply because they are on the NIH website. I believe the results of the studies because they show in the studies what their methods and procedures were in doing those studies.
And after having looked at the data and how it was derived, I know I can reasonably assume it is valid based on the fact that they have data from controlled, double-blind studies.
There's a big difference between believing them because they're the NIH, and believing them because they are scientists who happen to place that data at the NIH and the data speaks for itself.
Just keep this in mind when reading the stuff I present as the best evidence I have for recommending the products that I do.
