Corruption of the National Academy of Science, the NIH, NCI and others by
Winfield J. Abbe, Ph.D., October 18, 2011 Partial rebuttal to comments by professor Mark Farmer, Athens Banner Herald Tuesday October 18, 2011 criticizing earlier comments of Neal Boortz.
•“Richard Feynman became so exasperated [at the National Academy of Sciences] that he resigned his membership, saying that he saw no point in belonging to an organization that spent most of its time deciding who to let in.
o Gregory Benford, in "A Scientist's Notebook: Scientist Heroes" in The Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy (4/1996)”
o Above statement quoted from .
o Richard Feynman, Ph.D., Richard Chace Tolman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology until his death(1918-1988), Nobel Prize in physics 1965 shared with Schwinger and Tomonaga.
“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.”, Richard Feynman, Ph.D.
“Cancer and Vitamin C” by Ewan Cameron and Linus Pauling, Camino Books, Philadelphia, 1979, 1993.
Page xviii:“The Food and Nutrition Board states that the values of the RDA that the Board has set are large enough so that very few people receiving these amounts would suffer from the corresponding deficiency diseases-scurvy for vitamin C, beriberi for vitamin B1, pellagra for vitamin B3, and so on. The Food and Nutrition Board, however, shows a bias against vitamins and other nutrients similar to that of the writers of the books on health published by the National Academy of Sciences-essentially a rejection of possible value of intakes larger than the RDA’s….”
Current recommended intakes of vitamin C are dismally low:
Linus Pauling, Ph.D., distinguished professor of chemistry at the California Institute of Technology from about 1927 until his technical “retirement” in the 1960’s, is the only person in the world to have received two solo Nobel prizes, chemistry, 1954 and peace, 1962.
“The Cancer Industry Unravelling the Politics” by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D., Paragon House, NY, 1989:
“The Revelations in this book about the ways in which the American People have been betrayed by the cancer establishment, the medical profession, and the government are shocking. Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud, and that the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society are derelict in their duties to the people who support them”. Linus Pauling, Ph.D., two time solo Nobel prize winner,(1901-1994).
The author Ralph W. Moss from New York, of the above seminal book, 500 pages with 500 references, who holds a Ph.D. degree in classics from Stanford University in California, was fired as Assistant Director of Public Affairs from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York in the 1970’s for refusing to lie to the public about scientific research on Laetrile. This book and its successor in 1996 and earlier versions document the dismal corruption of the NIH, NCI and American Cancer Society in the failed war on cancer for decades. For example, it also includes the horror story of the “Summerlin Painted Mouse Affair” describing fraud by a medical doctor at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York who painted spots on the backs of laboratory animals in order to fool the public and other researchers about cancer research being performed there in the 1970’s; fraud and corruption is nothing new in our government funded laboratories.

Continued from above:

The following statement and references are quoted from
“The Truth about hydrazine sulfate- Dr. Gold Speaks” by Joseph Gold, M.D. a distinguished medical doctor and cancer researcher. This article documents how government institutes deliberately and negligently and criminally posted false statements on a government website. Dr. Gold did post graduate work at UC Berkeley many years ago in the 1950’s. The above document is supported by the following 78 references.
“Joseph Gold, M.D., is director of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute and the developer of hydrazine sulfate as an anticancer drug.
ADDENDUM. It has come to the attention of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute that the National Cancer Institute has placed the following misrepresentations on the Internet on June 18, 2004, repeated verbatim on March 3, 2005 ( ), in regard to hydrazine sulfate:
(1)“There is only limited evidence from animal studies that hydrazine sulfate has anticancer activity.”
(2)“Hydrazine sulfate has shown no anticancer activity in randomized clinical trials.”
The first sentence implies there have been no human studies that have demonstrated the anticancer activity of hydrazine sulfate. But, as NCI well knows, there have been many controlled human studies demonstrating the anticancer activity of hydrazine sulfate, dating from as far back as 1975 and published in leading peer-reviewed cancer journals which circulate worldwide (cited in references 15, 17, 23, 27, 29, 34, 35, 41, 78).
The second sentence states categorically there have been no randomized clinical trials demonstrating the anticancer activity of hydrazine sulfate. RCTs represent the “gold standard” of clinical trials, in that they are prospectively randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind and thus tend to minimize study bias from all sources. But NCI knows there have been four such randomized clinical trials demonstrating the anticancer activity of hydrazine sulfate (references 27, 34, 35, 41), all of which NCI has been aware from the very beginning.
NCI knows that the above statements it has currently placed on the Internet are simply not true.”

J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D.,“The Corruption of Science in America”
The above references are just a few, of many, which could be provided to dispute the misleading propaganda about our federal government agencies and science today by professor Mark Farmer in his article today in the Athens Banner Herald: Many more could be provided. In fact one could write a book on the subject of corruption in U.S. government agencies and indeed that is what some of the above references are all about.
I wouldn’t expect professor Farmer to criticize any government agency since he might fear losing some government grant money if he did. This illustrates the conflict of interest when government funds so called “scientific research”. Money and power get in the way of the truth. Remember when science was done without government funding? Remember all the great discoveries made then?
Why no great discoveries in say cancer today, after squandering over $100 billion on cancer research for the past nearly half century? The answer is corruption of science by government money. The cancer generals obviously don’t know what they are doing and continue to commit

The cancer generals obviously don’t know what they are doing and continue to commit scientific misconduct, fraud, medical quackery and crimes against humanity while the unwitting public and idiots in Congress continue to throw hard earned public tax money at these corrupt idiots who have failed now for so long and killed so many unwitting cancer victims.
Finally, remember this: UGA constantly brags that it is the oldest public university in the country. So why is it they don’t have nor have had a single Nobel prize winner on the faculty either for work done here or elsewhere? I think professor Farmer should take his head out of the sand and not only stop trying to fool a gullible local population which is easily fooled, but stop trying to fool himself too as professor Feynman admonished.
Remember, this newspaper is an expert at seeking to fool readers. Over ten years ago the editors held me to strictly 500 words in an article opposing the American Cancer Society, while they published over 11,000 words plus three picture pages promoting it! These editors are experts at propaganda. They give space to professor Farmer while allowing anonymous cowards to make mostly irresponsible, meaningless comments about others with the protection of virtual white hoods over their heads provided by these editors, for the sole benefit of profit for this sorry excuse of a newspaper. The good citizens of Athens, Georgia evidently love to be fooled by the likes of this trash sheet the Athens Banner Herald which recently was kept afloat by a bankruptcy proceeding. While not all government workers and scientists are corrupt, tragically, many are, but one wouldn’t know it by reading the unenlightening Polly Anna comments by professor Farmer today. All this corruption is another unintended consequence of big government, big power and big money. The pharmaceutical and food processing companies have corrupted the U.S. FDA. They have so much money they can buy anyone, anything and any government. The U.S. FDA is a corrupt cesspool.
