Avoid Having Your Children Medically Kidnapped by the Corrupt Cancer Industry – FREE Online Seminar!

Avoid Having Your Children Medically Kidnapped by the Corrupt Cancer Industry – FREE Online Seminar! | PrivatePractice | Scoop.it
The cancer treatment business in the United States is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world, generating well over 100 billion dollars of revenue.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the only organization authorized to approve medical treatments for cancer, and if your child has cancer and you do not like the choices available, such as toxic chemotherapy drugs, you face losing custody of your child to Child Protection Services for disagreeing with a doctor and the FDA approved cancer treatments.
The cancer treatment business is seen as a huge growth market, and it depends on no cures for the market to continue to grow. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
The medical system's next huge market for cancer growth are vaccines. The first cancer vaccine approved for children was the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine, Gardasil.
As Health Impact News has reported on its Vaccine Impact news site, many thousands of girls in the U.S. and around the world have reported that their lives have been destroyed by this cancer vaccine.
The best way one can avoid having their child medically kidnapped is to avoid doctors and hospitals that do not respect parental rights, and seek out the true cancer cures that currently exist, many of them outside of the U.S.
To learn more about effective cancer cures, and how to avoid the medical system, sign up for the FREE online summit that starts Tuesday, April 12th.
