More Questions About HIV, H1N1 & Deadly Vaccines

In a story that further illustrates the disarray and confusion about the pharmaceutical industry, vaccinations and AIDS, a leading cancer researcher now blames Merck and the military for producing vaccines that spread AIDS and cause cancer. Since many nutritional, behavioral, environmental and pathogenic cofactors (including toxic vaccines) can cause an acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), this story corroborates HIV co-discoverer Luc Montagnier’s opinion that anyone can recover from HIV without AIDS drugs.

Dr. Michele Carbone, Director of the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, and full Professor and Chairman, Department of Pathology at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, openly acknowledged HIV/AIDS was spread by the hepatitis B vaccine produced by Merck & Co. during the early 1970s.

This is the first time since the initial transmissions took place in 1972-74, that a leading expert in the field of vaccine manufacturing and testing has openly admitted the Merck & Co. liability for AIDS.

The matter-of-fact disclosure came during discussions of polio vaccines contaminated with SV40, the fortieth simian (monkey) virus discovered that caused cancer in nearly every species infected by injection. Many authorities now admit much, possibly most, of the world’s cancers came from the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines, and hepatitis B vaccines, produced in monkeys and chimps.

“There is no question that the FDA is much more vigilant today than it was 40 years ago,” Dr. Carbone wrote. “I guess they learned the lesson from the SV40 mess.

Although his opinion about the dangers of HIV conflicts with Dr. Montagnier’s findings, Professor Carone wrote that many people, “received hepatitis vaccines contaminated with HIV.”

If those who received the vaccine already suffered from an immune system that was compromised by environmental, behavioral or pathological co-factors, chances are that iatrogenically-introduced vaccines will further compromise the immune systems of those who receive them.

This could also produce a multi-billion dollar motive for pharmaceutical manufacturers (and universities like Harvard that rely on pharmaceutical funding to keep their doors open) to “discover” innocuous or non-existent viruses to blame for thousands of preventable deaths each year.

The fact that Harvard University just lost $1.8 billion in reckless investments only adds to that motive.

Dr. Carbone further stated:

“I do believe – and hope – that the present vaccines are safe and clean, and this is partly based on my experience in testing polio vaccines prepared in the Western world after 1963, neither I nor anybody in the world can assure you that with 100% confidence.”

Also engaged in the discussion was Rev. Roxanne Hampton, who sourced the legislative resolution urging passage of vaccination exemptions for religious persons in the State of Hawaii and elsewhere. Rev. Hampton raised the question of vaccine makers’ reliability, to which Dr. Carbone responded.

Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, a vaccine risk investigator and author of sixteen books including Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola–Nature, Accident or Intentional? was also invited to reply to the question of H1N1 safety testing.

“Dr. Carbone’s testimony is very important,” Dr. Horowitz said, addressing the little-known fact that “1) HIV was spread via the earliest hepatitis B vaccines, and 2) Despite the most advanced intelligence in vaccine science, there is no certainty that benefits outweigh risks, since the full extent of H1N1 vaccine risks are not known.

“Without certainty, and the past history, it is my humble opinion,” Dr. Horowitz added, “you would have to be a complete fool to trust the people that promote getting vaccinated this flu season (or any flu season for that matter).”

Dr. Horowitz went on to address the problem of lacking confidence in the H1N1 vaccines by considering those who manufactured the fright and these viral vaccines. ”

Regarding #1, it is gross criminal negligence that Dr Carbone’s factual statement has never been adequately investigated or acknowledged by anyone with authority in the four groups that produced that horrible HIV-contaminated hepatitis B vaccine, manufactured using chimpanzees (not VERO cell cultures contaminated with SV40, as Baxter Corp. is doing for some of its H1N1 flu vaccines).”

Dr. Horowitz cited the FDA, CDC, NIAID, and Merck & Co. as responsible for the production of the hepatitis B vaccines that massive evidence suggests triggered AIDS.

This evidences gross official criminal malfeasance at the highest levels of health science and the US Government,” Dr. Horowitz charged. He then went on to discuss the earlier pan-genocide as it relates to today’s H1N1 pandemic:

“At that time 1972-74, Dr. David Sencer was the CDC director who was very knowledgeable about this hep B vaccine investigation by NY University Medical Center researcher, Saul Krugman, et. al. His collaborators were at the New York City (NYC) Blood Bank, including Wolf Szmuness.

Dr. Sencer was also the CDC director who authorized the Public Health Service to conduct the Tuskeegee Syphilis study.

“As HIV-was out-breaking in NYC (and due to this same vaccine in Africa and Willowbrook State School for mentally retarded children on Staten Island, NY) Dr. Sencer was “demoted” to go from Atlanta, and transition from CDC director, to become the Health Department Director for the City of New York. This was done so that he could oversee the propaganda for damage control at the New York Blood Bank, created and controlled by the Rockefeller family (including Sen. Jay Rockefeller advancing the Senate Democratic Party’s health care reform plan).

Dr. Sencer was successful in preventing safety testing of the contaminated blood.

This intended delay, according to medical historians and lawsuits, spread HIV/AIDS internationally along with the herpes type viruses, including Epstein Barr causally-linked to several cancers and immune dysfunctions.

“Also at that time, as Willowbrook children were dying of the ‘abuse’ Geraldo Rivera was reporting, and Dr. Sencer was transitioning from CDC to the NYC Health Dept., in neighboring Fort Dix, New Jersey, a mysterious Swine flu outbreak occurred in military personnel, none of whom had any contact with pigs. That virus had been, according to experts, extinct for two decades.

“The 1976-1977 outbreak was most likely a military experiment, and precisely like the 2009 Mexican H1N1 outbreak in its media propaganda. The media promoted the 1976 Swine Flu campaign that was devastating in its side effects and adverse events including Guillain-Barre, that my mother died from, linked to this vaccination.

In 1977, the swine flu outbreak has been widely acknowledged by top officials, including Dr. Sencer himself, to have been “laboratory sourced.” Dr. Sencer wrote in a CDC publication, that this swine flu outbreak came from “a refrigerator.”

“In 1997, it was Dr. Sencer who led the team of virologists to Alaska, against international outrage and protests from leading scientists. He and his team, under top secret security, resurrected the 1918 Spanish flu virus and genetically reconstructed it. This was the virus said to have killed 50 million people worldwide. At that moment, it was a no-brainer for all these protesting scientists, that this virus would outbreak from containment in a high level security “refrigerator.”

H1N1 currently circulating, carries genes from this virus! Since this virus had gone extinct, and only existed in military labs, it is safe to say its genes were recombined with avian H1N1 and swine H1N1 to give you this never-before-seen “reassortant”– the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

“Now it was Reuter’s News Service, Thomas Glocer, Editor-in-Chief that broke world news in April regarding the Mexican outbreak. Thomas Glocer’s propaganda alleged H5N1 was possibly in this mix–a virus that kills 60% of humans infected. Thomas Glocer is a Director, on the Board of Directors, of Merck & Co. owner of CSL, Inc. the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine maker that provided the world’s safety testing and assurances of vaccine safety for pregnant women, babies, and children.

These safety tests were conducted in Australia at the Victoria Women’s Hospital directed by Elisabeth Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s mother. The children were tested at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute under the direction of Sarah Murdoch, Rupert’s daughter-in-law. FOX, Time Warner, and more are controlled by Murdoch. This GROSS CONFLICTING INTEREST would stun the world; yet it is not being reported at all in mainstream media despite my best efforts.

“The other day, Dr. Oz told America on ABC that everyone needs to get vaccinated. The financier behind ABC-Disney is Lloyd Blankfein. Thomas Glocer, Rupert Murdoch, and Lloyd Blankfein are David Rockefeller’s partners in Partnership for New York City, the world’s premier biotechnology trust, advancing “genetopharmaceuticals”–vaccines for everything. These are the people that dictate what people like Dr. David Sencer and Dr. Anthony Fauci (NIAID AIDS Czar, premier promoter of H1N1 Flu vaccines) say and do.

“By the way, Dr. Fauci joined Dr. Oz on ABC the other day as “the government’s leading flu vaccine expert.” Dr. Fauci, the co-patent holder, and royalty earner for IL-2, a vaccine adjuvant, did not disclose his conflicting interest, nor the amount of money he has been paid for IL-2’s use in vaccines. Nor did Dr. Oz who, in his book, urged readers to examine ingredients carefully prior to consuming products. The fact is, the ingredients of the H1N1 flu vaccines are not listed in the package inserts. One needs to go to their patents to find them.

“Suffice it to say, only mentally-manipulated fools think these vaccines are safe. Further only downright idiots would consent to getting vaccinated this flu season having the aforementioned intelligence.” (more info HERE)

Another Nobel Laureate Exposes AIDS Clerics

As if Nobel Laureates Walter Gilbert, Kary Mullis, Linus Pauling and 2600 other nominees, investigators and scientists weren’t enough, 2008 Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier MD has broken ranks to expose HIV and AIDS as little more than a pharmaceutical marketing scam. As one of two alleged co-discovers of HIV, how clerics like John Moore and others defend themselves from Montagnier’s charges will be interesting to see.

Montagnier: We can be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected… our immune system will get rid of the virus within a few weeks if you have a good immune system.

Brent Leung: If you have a good immune system then your body can naturally get rid of HIV?

Montagnier: Yes.

Brent Leung: If you take a poor African who’s been infected and you build up her immune system is it also possible for them to also naturally get rid of it?

Montagnier: I would think so… It’s important knowledge, which is completely neglected. People always think of drugs and vaccine.

Brent Leung: There’s no money in nutrition, right?

Montagnier: There’s no profit, yes.

While the documentary House of Numbers (HON) continues to shock audiences around the world, pharmaceutical marketers continue to incite the gay inquisition against the film and those who promote it. As described in previous reports, most of these crystal meth radicals are supported by the makers of HIV tests and drugs and predators like George Soros who exploit them.

In many ways, HIV has become the de facto religion of the radical gay movement that parades under the pretext of human rights – as if cross-dressing, gay sex and crystal meth somehow equate to the abolition of slavery.

The AIDS Church requires believers to evangelize Robert Gallo’s unproven assumptions about HIV (1, 2, 3, 4) and subject themselves to a baptism of HIV tests. Once confirmed, believers receive a sacramental cocktail of highly addictive psychotropic drugs and DNA inhibitors so that members can suffer and die for their church just like Jesus.

Thankfully, the vast majority of men and woman (gay and straight) know better than to subject themselves to the church’s social marketing schemes – which may be why the Academy of Education Development and pharmaceutical companies are now paying ex-celebrities like Blair Underwood and Magic Johnson to target their own vulnerable communities.

Montagnier and Gallo are only two of the highly paid clerics who make fools of themselves throughout the documentary. It would be comedic, except that these clerics are complicit in the deliberate and unnecessary sickness and death of millions around the world – drug-caused mortality that continues to be used to perpetuate a fake epidemic that the American Medical Association cannot substantiate.

Years from now, researchers and students will watch recordings of those clerics with the same fascination we now share for humanity’s other historical monsters. Our amazed progeny will ask themselves, “How could millions of people around the world fall for such a transparent lie?”

Doctors Sell Out to Pharmaceuticals

In another case of doctors selling out to the pharmaceutical industry, the Guardian reports that Dr Richard Eastell is being tried in front of a medical council for allowing his name to be put on a study of the osteoporosis drug Actonel.

Doctors have been agreeing to be named as authors on studies written by employees of the pharmaceutical industry, giving greater credibility to medical research, according to new evidence.

The Guardian has learned that one of Britain’s leading bone specialists is facing disciplinary action over accusations that he was involved in “ghost writing”.

The wider phenomenon has come to light through documents disclosed in the US courts which have revealed a culture in which doctors agree to “author” studies written by employees of drug firms. The doctors may have some input but do not have access to all the evidence from the drug trial on which the paper’s conclusions are based, the documents showed.

The General Medical Council will call Professor Richard Eastell in front of a fitness to practice committee. Eastell, a bone expert at Sheffield University, has admitted he allowed his name to go forward as first author of a study on an osteoporosis drug even though he did not have access to all the data on which the study’s conclusions were based. An employee of Proctor and Gamble, the US company making Actonel, was the only author who had all the figures.

Experts believe the practice is widespread in Britain. In another alleged example, a consultant cardiologist claims an expert listed as an author on a medical paper died before the research began. Peter Wilmshurst, a heart specialist at the Royal Shrewsbury hospital, is involved in a dispute over a study which he helped design, which involved the insertion of a device to close a hole in the heart.

He claims the manufacturers refused him access to data and he had concerns about the accuracy of the paper, so he refused to sign it off and is not listed as an author. One of those who is named, Wilmshurst said, is a true ghost author. Anthony Rickards, a cardiologist, was involved in preliminary discussions but died before the research was conducted.

The company which sponsored the research, the US firm NMT Medical, is suing Wilmshurst for remarks in a lecture that he made about outcomes in the trial, which were published on a medical journal website. A UK charity, HealthWatch, has launched a fund to support Wilmshurst, who was in 2003 a recipient of its award for challenging misconduct in academic medical research.

The US documents show that Wyeth, one of the biggest companies involved, employed a medical writing agency with the purpose of getting favourable studies about its HRT drug Prempro into prestigious medical journals.

The agency dreamed up ideas for papers about the benefits of the drugs and then wrote an outline and even a first draft before offering it to a doctor who might agree to have his name attached as the author. Although the doctor would see drafts and revisions, critics say that control of the content and message were in the agency’s hands. The memos and emails show that many busy academics signed their approval to the finished paper.

Many of the documents are records of planning meetings, where agency staff list articles that will be written, suggesting possible authors and targeting journals. Concern about ghostwriting caused the UK-based open-access journal PloS Medicine, part of the Public Library of Science, to intervene in a court case brought by women who claim they were harmed by the HRT drug. PloS Medicine, with the New York Times, argued that the public should know what was going on. A US judge agreed to place the documents in the public domain.

Ginny Barbour, editor in chief of PloS Medicine, said she was taken aback by the systematic approach of the agency. “I found these documents quite shocking,” she said. “They lay out in a very methodical and detailed way how publication was planned. “Other documents released through US court action show that GlaxoSmithKline employed a ghostwriting programme named Caspper in which doctors could take credit for medical journal articles written by the company’s consultants.

The project was aimed at boosting the US sales of an antidepressant called paroxetine, which goes by the brand name Paxil in the US and Seroxat in the UK.

Caspper stood for Case Study Publication for Peer Review. It enabled doctors with positive experiences of Paxil to get into medical journals. A busy doctor could sit back and let a medical writing agency paid by GSK do all their work, from the first draft to getting it accepted for publication by a journal.

The medical writing agency would prepare drafts using whatever material the doctor sent them and create figures and tables. These would go to the doctor for approval. “The author ensures accuracy of material, updates references, supplies missing information, etc,” says the leaflet. Eventually the doctor would complete a sign-off form and the agency would send the paper for publication.

Caspper came to light when internal GlaxoSmithKline documents were released in court action in the US brought by the legal firm Baum Hedlund on behalf of patients who claim they were harmed by Paxil. GSK says the programme was discontinued some years ago and that the names of medical writers were included on any published papers.

But Caspper shows there was no dividing line at the time between science and marketing – the leaflet states its purpose is to “strengthen the product positioning and overcome competitive issues”. Doctors and medical journals became part of a promotional campaign, aimed at selling more drugs.

The disciplinary move in the Eastell case comes after he admitted that a statement he signed declaring that all six authors had access to all the statistical data was wrong.

In a letter published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, which carried the original study, he stated: “In the original paper one of the authors, a statistician working for P & G, Ian Barton, had full access to all the data.” The authors had full access to all the analyses of the data that they requested, he said – but those analyses were carried out by the company.

The letter, published in 2007, also acknowledged flaws in the study. A later ndependent analysis of the data “identified some errors and poor practice”, he wrote. The study was designed to show the strengths of Actonel which was in fierce competition with a rival bone-strengthening drug called Fosamax, made by Merck.

Eastell’s paper concerned a study carried out on behalf of Proctor and Gamble, comparing the bone density of women prescribed Actonel with others who were not. Only the company knew which women were on the drug and which were taking something else.

Eastell’s colleague, Dr Aubrey Blumsohn, wanted the codes which would say which of the patients who suffered fractures had been on the drug. The company refused. Blumsohn took his concerns to Eastell, but in a conversation which Blumsohn says he taped, Eastell said he was concerned that persistent requests might damage the
relationship they had with the company. Eastell is said to have told him: “The only thing that we have to watch all the time is our relationship with P&G. Because … we have the big Sheffield Centre Grant [from P&G] which is a good source of income, we have got to really watch it.” .

Tim Kendall, joint director of the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, says the problem is the close relationship between doctors and the industry. “Some doctors don’t seem to see the relationship … as problematic.”

A study of 4,000 physicians found that 96% received money from drug companies, and yet “the majority did not see it as a conflict of interest”, he said.

“I do think there needs to be a national debate in this country about the interpenetration of medicine and the pharmaceutical industry.”

Ghost writing was one manifestation of a bigger problem which he believed was the institutional bias of doctors who work closely with and for drug companies. “In mental health 85% of all published trials are funded by the drug industry,” he said. Allowing for the unsuccessful trials the industry does not publish, the figure is probably nearer 95%, he said.

Studies have shown that drug company-funded trials are five times more likely to come out with a positive result for the drug than independent trials.

The GMC is criticised by doctors like Wilmshurst and Blumsohn for failing to take a tougher line against doctors involved in dubious research practices.

Jane O’Brien, head of standards and ethics, said that their research guidance specified the importance of honesty in the attribution of authorship. “We would see that as an important issue. If somebody’s name is on something it gives research a credibility that it wouldn’t otherwise have. If somebody had not been involved, we would see that as misleading people as to the credibility of the research.”

She added that the GMC felt it important to play a role in ensuring good conduct in research. About a year ago, she said, they took soundings of bodies that regulate and support research, such as the Medical Research Council, asking whether the GMC should be involved. “The response was yes, because we are the people who can strike doctors off in the end.”

Eastell declined to discuss the hearing. “I do not wish to comment on the case. The proceedings have yet to commence,” he told the Guardian in an email. A spokesperson from the University of Sheffield, where Eastell is professor of bone metabolism, said they were aware of the investigation. “We will be informed by the GMC of any outcome and cannot comment further until we receive this.”

House of Numbers: Stunning!

“A stunning piece of filmmaking!”

That’s what Canadian filmmaker and Raindance Film Festival founder Elliot Grove said this week about Brent Leung’s documentary House of Numbers. Having worked on 68 feature films and over 700 commercials, Grove knows what he’s talking about.

Objecting to the wasted resources and union bureaucracy that prevents aspiring filmmakers from getting their features off the ground, Grove moved to London in the late 1980s and launched the Raindance Film Festival in 1993 – a festival devoted to independent filmmaking and its emerging talent. He has written books about, and lectures on, screenwriting and filmmaking throughout the UK, Europe, North America and Japan. In 1992, he set up the training division of Raindance, which offers nearly two dozen evening and weekend master classes on writing, directing, producing and marketing films.

After the film’s screening, Grove said:

I’ve just come out of screening of House of Numbers Brent Leung’s film… I hadn’t seen it until now. I was a bit skeptical because of all the furor around the film that has swirled around Raindance, but I’ve gotta say that it was just a stunning piece of filmmaking…

In another coordinated attack on free expression, the pharmaceutical industry’s marketing goons tried to pressure Grove into spiking the film:

We were flooded with hate mail, emails, legal letters couriered from the States from all sorts of people threatening us and accusing us of being prissy and smug about showing this film obviously from people who obviously hadn’t seen it accusing this film of being an “AIDS denialist” film and I’ve just seen the film and it’s obviously not an “AIDS denialist” film at all. It’s just a brilliant piece of filmmaking – journalistic filmmaking which, anyone who takes the time and effort to see it should completely re-examine their view of the whole AIDS/HIV question… I think history is gonna be re-written or should be re-written and perhaps this… film is one of the first steps.

This explains why the makers of deadly AIDS drugs and dangerously unreliable testing kits are so fearful of Leung’s film. Grove wasn’t deterred:

Regardless of the topic… as the way the film was put together, the journalistic approach and the skill of the filmmaking, the post-production, the music and everything reminded me of a British documentary… called Man on Wire… I’ve got to say that Brent’s film, House of Numbers was right up there – and Oscar season isn’t far away… It’s extreme, it’s honest… a really good piece of filmmaking.

Hollywood Gumshoe has posted more on the film here.

Charged with HIV-Related Crimes – YOU’RE INNOCENT!

OMSJ is a licensed investigation agency. Since October 2009, it has helped more than two dozen defense attorneys successfully defend more than two dozen HIV-related criminal cases.

If you have been charged with an HIV-related crime or civil action – or you represent someone in such action, CONTACT OMSJ IMMEDIATELY.

Here’s why: 

  • In 2008, a Texas court sentenced Willie Campbell to 35 years in prison for spitting at a police officer.
  • A year later, Philippe Padieu faced five to 99 years for having sex with several women. He lucked out with a 25-year sentence.
  • In December 2009, an Arkansas Court sentenced Christopher Gray (18) to 15 years in prison.

These men were convicted NOT because they are infected with deadly infectious diseases but because their attorneys did not know how to defend their clients against HIV junk science.

According to HIV test manufacturers, FDA-approved HIV tests do not detect HIV and cannot be used to diagnose HIV. AIDS drugs cause cancer and kill. Many HIV medications contain drugs like Sustiva (Efavirenz), a benzoxazine (BZX) that compromises immune function after ONE DOSE and can produce life-long psychological and physical injuries.

(More information about HIV drugs and the diseases they cause is found here.)

Statutes differ from state to state. Most of these laws are written by well-meaning legislators who rely on pharmaceutical marketing information and corrupt government officials to write their bills.

OMSJ’s HIV Innocence Group provides expertise to attorneys whose clients face HIV-related charges. Because of the technical nature of these cases and the volume of pharmaceutical propaganda pushed by the CDC and NIH, there is little information for prosecutors, defense attorneys and courts that can be helpful to these cases. (More information regarding case strategies is found at Winning Criminal HIV Cases.)

In April 2011, OMSJ counsel deposed the Director of the Indiana State Department of Health in charge of HIV-related policy. He began to dismantle her credibility in less than one hour.

Although some Congress members and the Obama Administration have asked state officials to discontinue the prosecution HIV-related criminal defendants, men and women continue to be unnecessarily charged, convicted and sentenced based upon tests that do not detect HIV, evidence that is built upon scientific misconduct and doctors who sell their diplomas to drug companies. Some of these doctors are critical of OMSJ’s efforts, which may confuse potential clients. (Visit our Due Diligence page for more information and references.)

If you or your client have been charged with an HIV-related criminal or civil offenses, OMSJ urges you to contact us immediately. Do not admit being HIV positive and do not submit to a court-ordered HIV test before contacting OMSJ.

OMSJ provides services to attorneys and defendants throughout North America and Europe and can be the difference between a long prison sentence and freedom. OMSJ also handles MILITARY cases.

I learned a lot about the cost of health care when I had a hybrid general surgery practice in California ‘s rural San Joaquin Valley.  My practice consisted of uninsured women with breast cancer combined with a smaller percentage of cosmetic patients whose cash payments for “vanity care” subsidized the treatment of women unable to pay for needed medical treatment.
Although patients seeking cosmetic services tend to be healthy, I evaluated them like any other patient.  I asked about medical history, allergies, medications and genetic disorders.
Upon questioning Sherry S., a pretty 46-year-old seeking wrinkle relief, I learned that four of her immediate family members had been diagnosed with breast or colon cancer before the age of 50.  Alarmed, I asked why she had not had the recommended screening mammogram for more than four years.
She said that she knew already that her risk for developing breast cancer was likely higher than that of most women.
“But I don’t have insurance,” she replied.
A screening mammogram could be obtained for about $90 and was discounted or free at local facilities every October for “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
She smiled when I proposed a deal: if she were to get a screening mammogram within sixty days of her treatment, I would offer a discount on what she paid me for cosmetic services.
“I’ll think about it,” she said, then shelled out over $400 for BotoxTM injections that took me ten minutes to administer.
Five months later, when she returned for her next wrinkle treatment, she reported that she still had not obtained a mammogram.
I encountered patients who gladly paid upwards of $1000 in cash for laser hair removal treatments.  The paperwork filled out during their initial consultation asked them to indicate whether or not they had health insurance.
 
Several hair removal patients reported being covered by Medi-Cal, the government funded health coverage for California ‘s low-income population.
 
A friend of mine sells private health insurance plans.  He told me of the 39-year-old father of two whose family was quoted a monthly insurance premium of $250.
“Are you kidding?” he said, refusing the coverage. “That’s almost as much as my boat payment!”
When serving in the Rural Health Center in my community, my colleagues and I offered free or discounted care for a large number of patients.  Many were covered by Medi-Cal or one of dozens of state programs paid for by the taxpayers of California.
The following items were commonly seen on patients or carried by their dependent children, who were also covered by subsidized programs:
• Cell phones and “BlackBerry” PDAs, including just-released models with a price tag of $400, plus an ongoing monthly service fee of $65-$150
• iPods and portable DVD players
• GameBoys and handheld electronic games
• Artificial fingernails requiring maintenance every two weeks at a cost of $40-$60 per salon visit
• Elaborate braided hair weaves, $300 per session plus frequent maintenance
• Custom-designed body art, including tattoos covering the entire torso, neck and arms, as well as body jewelry piercing every skin surface imaginable-and a few unimaginable ones.  Custom tattoo work, particularly the “portrait-type” and “half sleeve” art popular in this area, runs from $100-$300 per hour and can require up to 20 hours of work, depending on the complexity of the design. 
[Author’s note: in three years, I performed over a dozen operations as the result of complications related to infected or abnormally healed body piercings.  Breast abscesses were the most common pathology, followed by cauliflower-shaped keloid scars that interfered with function.  Blood-borne diseases can be contracted during amateur and prison tattoos and piercings, and patients self-reported Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV infections.  Treatment of the complications of body art among my patients was largely covered by Medi-Cal or left unpaid.]
 
From the office I shared with another doctor at the clinic, I had a clear view of the patient parking lot.  It was not unusual for me to see clinic patients drive away in late model SUVs or cars customized in the style popular in my area.   I was given an education about the after-market accessories I saw daily, including “mag” wheels, chrome trim, spinning hubcaps and fancy custom paint jobs.  Gasoline prices were particularly high in central California at that time.
I overheard patients and their children chatting as I wrote in their charts.  Many had an excellent command of the plotlines of cable television shows aired only on premium channels.  Basic cable in my area cost over $50 per month, with premium channels extra.
I also overheard the front desk clinic staff members explain politely to angry patients that they did, in fact, have to make $5 co-pays for an office visit or meet their $20 “Share of Cost” on a $600 bill as required by Medi-Cal.
Like many of my colleagues in rural communities with few resources, I did care for patients who actually lived in poverty.  For them, luxury meant keeping the utilities on and having clean clothes for a rare visit to the doctor.  In California ‘s Central Valley , “dirt poor” is not just a phrase.  But these patients, who rewarded me in ways that don’t fit in the lines on any tax return, were outnumbered by others who considered health care a lower budget priority than decorated skin and expensive toys.
Individuals in this country have a right to decide how — and how not — to spend their money.
But that right does not include accepting entitlements without sharing responsibility.  Doing so contributes to the high cost of care that burdens every unsubsidized patient.
If individuals prefer to buy luxury items rather than pay for their healthcare needs, that preference should not be rewarded while taxpayers struggle to foot their own bills.
Dr. Linda Halderman was a Breast Cancer Surgeon in rural central California until unsustainable Medicaid payment practices contributed to her practice’s closure.
