As of today, we have no cures for ALS, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, most cancers and virtually all major diseases nor do we have proper and effective treatments. This compelling new film examines the deception and an outdated medical system that is still decades away from simply understanding these diseases.
The Canadian government, charities and universities continue to invest millions of tax and donor dollars in a biomedical research area that has a 95% failure rate. The Medical Illusion explores the issues and a transition to a new paradigm that is human specific; precision medicine. Available now are In-vitro, organ on a chip, 3D human printing and many other innovations, however, they are essentially being ignored.
Various scientists including Dr. Thomas Hartung of John Hopkins University, Dr. Charu Chandrasekara of the University of Windsor, Nicole Kleinstreuer from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Troy Seidle from Humane Society International along with politicians and other professionals speak openly of the injustice happening in Canada today.
