Here are my reflections on the 1997 speech I gave to the Multiple Sclerosis Society followed by my speech at the MS Society's Annual General Meeting at the Plaza 5000 Hotel in Vancouver, Canada, on November 15, 1997.
MY REFLECTIONS, WRITTEN IN 2007If I were given the opportunity to give another speech to the MS Society today in 2007 I might change a few details but the essence of that speech would be exactly the same as the essence of the message that I conveyed in my 1997 speech to the MS Society. In the intervening years the MS Society has continued to make their living by pandering to the medical establishment, with which they collude, and to betray the people with MS that they claim to be serving. The only people they serve are themselves and their friends in the dental industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical profession.
The MS Society didn't want me to finish my speech in 1997, despite the fact that they had invited me there to express my views freely. I had made no agreement with them ahead of time to pander to them and they had no inkling of what I was about to say. They had never received such a direct message before and they have not received such a direct message since. My speech was a full frontal assault on their culture of immorality. They heckled me and tried to shout me down from the podium that fine Saturday morning in November. Above their hoots and hollers I shouted back at them that I had been invited there to speak and that I intended to finish my speech. Much to their chagrin I finished my speech. My message resounded loudly in the MS community and it continues to do so 12 years after the fact because my website reaches thousands of people with MS and other illnesses every year. I recovered from MS and Crohn's disease and at age 59 I am fit as a fiddle. At age 40 my days were numbered by MS, and at the age of 44 death was knocking on my door by the name of Crohn's disease. I did not recover from two so-called incurable diseases by accident. Dental mercury is still the central issue, one which the MS Society continues to avoid, along with the MS Clinics, the medical profession including the entire neurological profession, the ADA and the FDA. They all sweep it under the carpet as discreetly as possible. But it rears its ugly head more powerfully with each successive year. They can repeat the The Big Dental Lie as often as they want but they cannot hide the truth. Not even the ADA can hide the truth.
Update: In June 2008 the FDA settled a lawsuit brought by Moms Against Mercury against the ADA. In the settlement, the FDA agreed to bring to a conclusion by July 2009 a regulatory review of mercury in fillings that began in 2002. The process could result in a requirement that prescribing information warn dentists and pregnant women of nervous system dangers to fetuses and young children with developing brains. "Gone are all of FDA's claims that no science exists that amalgam is unsafe," said Michael Bender of Vermont, a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The FDA reversed their 2008 decision in July 2009. I have invited the ADA, the FDA and the MS Society to respond to the statements on my site about the lawsuit, the ADA, the FDA and the MS Society. I have not received a single email from any of them in 13 years. Frankly, I'm not surprised. I'm not holding my breath.
THE LAWYERS LOUNGE AT ADA HEADQUARTERS
MY SPEECH TO THE MS SOCIETYGood afternoon everyone. I was paralyzed by MS in 1989. I nearly died from Crohn's Disease in 1994. In both cases, I had to take control over my own recovery. Without doing so there would have been no recovery. It takes single-minded determination to make recovery happen. The battle is won or lost on the battleground of the mind and spirit. From DAY 1, I decided I was going to win. I didn't know how, but I knew I would. I decided that I would not succumb to the inevitable decline that people with MS are conditioned to expect by neurologists and the MS Society. I have an iron will. I knew that my will and whatever intelligence God gave me would lead to success. I told this to my neurologist. He looked right through me. He gave me neither answers nor hope. Nor did the MS Society. I had to find both on my own. And I did. I started by giving up going to neurologists. And I stopped asking the MS Society for answers.
Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on Earth. Just think about it for a moment. Mercury ranks with plutonium on the scale of toxicity as the most poisonous thing on Earth you can expose yourself to. And 80% to 90% of the population is carrying a mercury time bomb around in their mouths which leaks mercury into their central nervous systems and all their body's tissues every single day. Information about the toxicity of dental mercury has been accumulating for over 150 years. The first cases of MS were recorded shortly after mercury was first used to fill teeth in the early 1800's and they were recorded in those who had mercury in their mouths, not in those who didn't. You will never read about this in the information package on dental mercury that the MS Society disseminates. In fact, their package defends mercury to the hilt.
Years ago the Society never talked about dental mercury. Today, they can't avoid it.. There is too much publicity implicating mercury with MS. Nevertheless, the Society has no intention whatsoever in admitting that dental mercury causes MS, no matter what evidence is presented. To do so would mean the end of the MS Society. So, they print the reports of a group of third-rate researchers to support their claims about the safety of mercury and cross their fingers that the public will fall for it. Here's a sample. The symptoms of mercury poisoning are identical to the symptoms of MS. Mercury causes mercury poisoning. But mercury doesn't cause MS. Next, in a study of 87 people with MS 83 had dental treatment prior to the onset of MS. Dental treatment means mercury. But, because 4 people didn't get MS after dental treatment the 83 who did could not have got it from the mercury. These absurdities are so breathtaking you'd have to be brain dead to believe them. Incidentally, I got MS shortly after I had 14 mercury fillings replaced with new mercury fillings.
Dr. Hal Huggins who is a dentist and dental researcher writes, and I quote, "The Multiple Sclerosis Society has been averse to looking into this situation. It is almost as if the organization wants to be looking for a cause and cure for this disease, but not to find one. They have actively campaigned against looking into the mercury issue. They have sent out letters stating that they have thoroughly checked the literature and have found no correlation between amalgam and MS. Yet Dr. Schwartzendruber (who is a Ph.D. experimental pathologist at the University of Colorado) has written about 20 reference articles. (That shows this relationship to be valid.)" End quote. Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, M.D., says that "voluminous amounts of scientific research" exist incriminating dental mercury as the cause of MS and other related diseases. What does the MS Society do with this huge body of evidence? They use money donated to the Society to manipulate the evidence and to bury the truth. Dr. Rona declares, quote," The safety of mercury-containing dental amalgams has never been proven. Mainstream dental dogma dictates that any unproven treatment be labelled as quackery. Supposedly scientific groups like the ADA and the CDA declare that amalgams are safe. Based on actual scientific research, this is nonsense." End quote. Dr. Jacob Swilling is a research scientist who has devoted the last 24 years to the study of the causes of disease. He writes, and I quote, "The evidence is overwhelming. When we submit to common dental procedures... we submit to a source of toxic poisoning. That has no equal in terms of the resulting illness and disease, suffering and death". End quote. Dr. Murray Vimy, a Faculty of Medicine dentist in Calgary, points out that, and I quote, "the USEPA (The Environmental Protection Agency)... views filling scrap as a toxic bioharzardous waste to be sealed in leak-proof containers and carted out of the dental office by hazard control experts in armored trucks. The dental profession considers it to be absolutely safe when implanted permanently into your teeth." End quote. And so does the MS Society.
Canadians for Mercury Relief is an organization of lawyers, scientists, professionals and lay persons that is lodging the largest class action lawsuit ever filed in Canada against the Canadian Government because it knew in 1976 that dental mercury was a highly toxic substance that was destroying the health of the Canadian people and it decided to cover up this information instead of making it public. Here's what the MS Society has to say about this in an email I received from Deanna Grotzinger on May 6, 1997.
"Thank you for the information about your efforts regarding Canadians for Mercury Relief. This organization had not been brought to the attention of the national office previously and it is useful to have the information." End quote. (Now, does this mean that it is so useful that the MS Society will be talking about all of this publicly? Have you heard them utter a single word about it?) Then, the email continues, quote, "the question of mercury especially as it pertains to dental amalgams and MS is a controversial and not necessarily straightforward issue." End quote. (This is the double talk of an Organization that is spouting nonsense and trying to protect itself at the same time. If you ask the MS Society about dental mercury they'll send you out information sanctioned by the Mercury Industry and the College of Dental Surgeons. Mercury Incorporated doesn't see any problem with dental mercury so that's good enough for the MS Society.) The MS Society calls mercury controversial. Mercury is about as controversial as a bullet in the back of the head. Their response to my email is that "it is useful to have this information". I bet it is. I wonder whose back yard they buried it in. The MS Society figures that people will believe the Society's nonsense if they just keep on repeating it often enough.
The Society says that there is quote, "absolutely no evidence", end quote, that removing dental mercury will cure MS. That is absolutely correct. But it is a calculated and misleading statement that tells less than half the story. Removing dental mercury alone will not cure MS. But, if after removing dental mercury, an individual has DMPS and DMSA chelation, the mercury will be flushed out of the nervous system. When you add the hormone DHEA to this powerful detoxification program remarkable recoveries such as mine become possible. DMPS and DMSA have been around for years. And the MS Society knows it. These are sulphur-based amino acids, the building blocks of protein. They have been used with great success to detoxify lead miners, children suffering from lead poisoning and people suffering from dental mercury poisoning. You will never hear the words DMPS or DMSA ever being mentioned by the MS Society. They simply ignore the subject of chelation completely, and the hormone DHEA completely as well.
The Society's moral bankruptcy should be obvious to everyone by now. The Society refuses to acknowledge that even one piece of evidence exists showing the link between dental mercury and MS despite massive and incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. Their mission is to manipulate public opinion so that the truth about MS is never discovered. In a moral society they would be brought in front of a tribunal and be called to account for their actions. But we don't live in a moral society. So the MS Society is allowed to stay in business functioning as a servant of the Dental Industry. The MS Society is allowed to operate behind a veil of legality.
In a declaration that discourages those with MS and destroys all hope the Society states that it has no idea what causes MS and that there is certainly no cure for it. This declaration is an admission of failure by the Society. MS is a condition of toxicity and deficiency. The toxicity is metals or chemicals or both. Dental mercury is the cause in the vast majority of cases. There may sometimes be a viral or bacterial component. The deficiencies involve nutrients, minerals and hormones. The hormone DHEA is one of the keys to recovering from MS. Studies have proven this beyond question. That's it. That is how I approached my recovery and the results are incontrovertible. 8 years ago I was bedridden. You can judge for yourselves the truth about my recovery. Anyone who wants to find out more can call me at [telephone number deleted] in Vancouver. I'll be happy to talk to you.
The MS Society can't afford to have someone out there claiming they've found a way to recover from MS. Recovery might become contagious. A cure for MS spells the end of the MS Society. So, they have to explain away my recovery. They declare that I am in remission. IN REMISSION means The Disease has gone away for a while but, don't worry, it'll be back. We know all about The Disease. They say that my story is merely anecdotal. ANECDOTAL means it's only a story. It proves nothing. People's stories aren't the truth. The truth is what The Medical Establishment says is the truth. When these two reliable old standbys don't work, they resort to their trump card: there's no proof. They can't lose with that one. They use these three put-downs to patronize, to debunk, and to dismiss anyone who dares to say they have recovered from MS. The MS Society says nobody recovers from MS. They are really saying that I am either lying or that my recovery was a freak accident. They'll say anything to try to discredit my recovery. The MS Society speaks a language called Official Truth. When you reject the Official Truth you can start to find the Real Truth. The Real Truth is that MS is caused by toxins. People with MS have been poisoned. The MS Society says it is the leader in finding a cure for MS. The Real Truth is that this is a marketing slogan they have created to hide their true mission - to suppress the search for a cure for MS. The only thing the MS Society is a leader in is in raising money to sustain the Society. Run for the cure. Ride for the cure. What a sad joke.
It won't surprise you that there isn't one single book critical of dental mercury on the MS Society's book list. After this talk, I will give a list of books and internet addresses that reveal the truth about dental mercury to anyone who wants it. When you read the evidence you will be compelled to conclude that the MS Society's position on dental mercury and their refusal even to acknowledge the existence of chelation is criminal. There is one more book you should read. Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, M.D., has written an expose of The Medical Establishment called The Medical Mafia. The title says it all.
Orthodox Medicine's idea of helping people with chronic illness is to drug them. Millions of dollars poured into MS research every year are poured right down the drain and into the bottom line of chemical companies. The ever-elusive magic drug will never be created. No drug ever cured any disease. No drug will ever cure MS. MS is not a prednisone deficiency or a deficiency of any other drug. Drugs are chemicals. They are created to suppress symptoms and to make profits for chemical companies. In the process they kill thousands of people every year and destroy the health of tens of thousands more. Modern Medicine is driven by corporate profit. Not the health of the public.
It's no surprise that you will never hear the MS Society tell anyone to get tested for metal toxicity or mineral and DHEA deficiencies. This only involves simple blood and urine tests. Well, even simple lab testing is a threat to the MS Society. If people find that they are toxic and deficient, and they will, this would expose the Society. So the Society never utters the words "lab testing". They have a mission - to protect themselves and their friends at the College of Physicians and Surgeons and The College of Dental Surgeons whose livelihoods depend on the MS Society helping to perpetuate the lie about the safety of dental mercury. The Dental Industry generates billions of dollars every year in revenue. It cannot afford to have the MS Society oppose mercury. The dominos would start to fall. So, it makes sure the MS Society remains solidly pro-mercury. There is too much at stake here. The Dental Industry is totally corrupt and will do anything to retain its market and its power. And so will their friends at the MS Society.
If you want to find out the truth about dental mercury and MS you can take my example and investigate the facts I have presented to you today. My recovery was no accident. I ignored the advice of the MS Society and had my dental mercury removed, had chelation and took DHEA. My recovery was immediate and dramatic. I now help people with MS from all over the world get the information they need to start on the path to recovery. I am doing the job that the MS Society should be doing. They're too busy running for the cure.
