Read&Download Incurable Me: Why the Best Medical Research Does Not Make It into Clinical Practice by Kenneth Stoller Online


In Incurable Me, a maverick physician brings transparency
to some of medicine’s most closely guarded secrets. As he
establishes a link between commerce and medical research, K. P. Stoller
also explains how to treat some of the most worrisome diseases and
conditions afflicting humans today—including Lyme disease, brain
trauma, dementia, and autism.
Dr. Stoller maintains that the best
evidence in medical research is not incorporated into clinical practice
unless the medical cartel has the potential to make large amounts of
money promoting the results of the research. Stoller takes his
provocative argument a step further, maintaining that if specific
research conflicts with a powerful entity’s financial interests,
the likely result will be an effort to suppress or distort the results.
Stoller cites numerous examples, including corporate influence on GMO
labeling and public health.
Stoller also explores how
“revolving-door-employment” between the Centers for Disease
Control and large pharmaceutical companies can affect research
results—as well as our health. Written in an accessible style that
is thoroughly appropriate for a lay audience, Incurable Me is a
must-read for anyone interested in the state of modern medicine.

Too much tinfoil hat stuff. This is the worst kind of conspiracy theory -- the kind that mixes science-medical-speak with a sinister cabal looking for world domination. Occam's Razor, folks. Simplest explanation is probably the best.

1. Healthcare should never be subjected to capitalistic pressures. The objectives of medicine and profit making can be diametrically opposed. The book makes this point, but veers into Bigfoot territory when the mere fact that drug companies profit from making us Too much tinfoil hat stuff.

1. Healthcare should never be subjected to capitalistic pressures. The objectives of medicine and profit making can be diametrically opposed. The book makes this point, but veers into Bigfoot territory when the mere fact that drug companies profit from making us take their medications explains a lot of the problems.

2. Corporate incentives do not always favor a collective good. Again, a point made, but then twisted beyond recognition by this book.

I could go on. Yes there are problems and yes profit in the medical profession plays a huge part, but no this book will not help the matter. ...more

Good info we should be aware of in order to improve lives.

Stroller provides evidence-based facts that one does not want to believe, but must. He exposes ideas one needs to think on, and evaluate prior to acknowledge the truth he exposes. Every adult planning to have a child should read this book prior to conception.

Some scary revelations by a long time medical practitioner about the current mainstream health care industry. Profits trump all else and the public health is grossly compromised on the way to bigger profits by drug companies, in an incestuous maze with the governmental agencies whose primary concern is to drive up business profits, not the people’s health. The author claims Lyme disease to be much more widespread than believed by the mainstream medicine, and gives plenty of useful advice on Some scary revelations by a long time medical practitioner about the current mainstream health care industry.

I haven't read this book yet, but I heard the author interviewed on the radio. He makes good sense. He is anti-vaccination, anti-fluoridation, and critical of for-profit medicine. He is a proponent of oxygen therapy.

I want to start off by saying this book wasn’t what I thought it would be. Based on the title I didn’t think it was going to be conspiracy-theory laden. I thought it would be more about the difficulties in getting treatments though clinical trials and out to market, or about off-label uses for certain drugs. I had recently read Her2, about the path Herceptin took to FDA approval and I thought this would be more like that. It certainly was about the difficulty getting certain treamtents accepted I want to start off by saying this book wasn’t what I thought it would be.

I had recently read Her2, about the path Herceptin took to FDA approval and I thought this would be more like that. It certainly was about the difficulty getting certain treamtents accepted by mainstream medicine, but with a healthy dose of conspiracy.

Once I realized what the book was about I was skeptical but two things kept me going: 1) he started with Lyme disease, which I know is extremely difficult to diagnose and treat - so what he was saying made sense to me. 2) He cites sources (how good they are is another question for another day). But he cites them at least, and they are actual academic sources, not “bobsantivaxpage.com”.

A couple of thoughts:

I thought everyone knew pesticide poisoning was a thing. For goodness sake it appears in an episode of Scrubs.
If pesticides are such a problem (and I have no doubt that they are), why is the author so against GMO crops? GMO crops can be engineered in such a way as to require fewer or no pesticides.
It’s odd that the author is such a champion of 23AndMe when he’s a huge conspiracy theorist. The public should be extremely wary of giving their genetic info away; and on a more practical note, these types of commercial DNA tests are often less accurate for persons of color.
The perpetual name calling gets old.
Most of his claims are cited, but the ones that aren’t stick out. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Sometimes he makes a claim and then quotes a paper to prove his point, but the part he quoted doesn’t match what he is saying. An example of this can be found on page 129 in the paperback edition.
There are quite a few spelling and grammatical/syntax errors (dangling participles and subject-verb agreement issues). This makes it difficult to read and makes me wonder why he couldn’t find a proofreader to read the book.
Finally, he completely lost me at chemtrails. That was the last straw that made me shake my head and go “okay, he may have a point about some other things but seriously dude, get it together.”

Overall I am glad I read this book, because it got me through a slow weekend at work, and because it’s always good to hear how the other side thinks. I absolutely believe there is corruption in the government and Big Pharma - I just don’t think I believe it goes as deep as he says it does. I think that nutrition is a big part of health, but I think homeopathy is borderline criminally negligent. I think the American Academy of Pediatrics would have kicked the author out if he hadn’t resigned. Clearly, he believes what he is writing (to the point where he can’t acknowledge his own biases - only once does he state it), but I’m not sure that I believe it all. I have not “drank the Kool-aid”, as he wrote more than once.

Disbelieve at your own risk (Semmelweis reflex)

This review is for both the Kindle and Audible book versions.

The author, a practicing, experienced doctor, connects the dots in clear fashion: Our medical system is not just broken, it is corrupt, criminal, and intent on destroying us so that a few can obscenely profit and have control over society.

NO, this is not a conspiracy theory author, there are citations, references, and plenty of stuff that you can look up and confirm for yourself. Like I Disbelieve at your own risk (Semmelweis reflex)

NO, this is not a conspiracy theory author, there are citations, references, and plenty of stuff that you can look up and confirm for yourself. Like I said, the author connects the dots in lucid fashion. You can either benefit from his exposé, or you can suffer from your own Semmelweis reflex.

Dr. Stoller does not sound like an alarmist or crazy person, but tells it like it is, often with wry humor. Yes, there is a bunch of medical gobbledygook jargon, but there again, he makes it plain enough to understand, at least for the narrative's sake.

The beauty of this book is that he not only spells out the corruption among all the government agencies and most of the medical organizations, the dangerous substances that we are being unwillingly and willingly exposed to and are ingesting, and true causes of major ailments that are reaching or have reached epidemic rates in the US and abroad, but importantly, he also gives possible treatments and preventative measures in good detail. As he says, it is not comprehensive, but the information he gives is a good concise guide and a good start. So he doesn't just say "Houston, we have a problem," but he helps by giving some solutions.

I would say this is a MUST read for anyone that refuses to be indoctrinated by the main stream media and by the government and all of their partners (in crime). Definitely a MUST read for anyone thinking about or soon to have a child before you have that child and before you subject that child to vaccinations and other "medical" practices.

The Kindle version is excellent. The purchase price came with the audio version. It seamlessly kept track of where I was on my iPhone, iPad, text, or audio book. The Audible book is so handy as I was able to get through most of this book by just listening to it in the car while traveling. The reader is only a couple of steps better than listening to a computer-generated voice, but after a while, you get used to listening to him. My kudos to him, though, for having to learn how to pronounce all of those medical terms flawlessly. ...more

Interesting diatribe on health care in the US and quite an indictment of Big Pharma. Some parts of the book were written in a way that makes the author sound like a paranoid nutcase, which does not help his cause, but he's on the right path. However, he lost me when I looked up one of his cites, a TED Talk by Bill Gates, and it was my determination that he took a comment out of context and misconstrued the purpose and intent of the talk. But there is enough real data cited to bear discussion Interesting diatribe on health care in the US and quite an indictment of Big Pharma.

I love the courage of this author to boldly state unpopular truths and opinions about the medical industry. Sometimes the medical terminology was a little bit over my head and I took my time reading it, but it was worth it. Read only if you dare to challenge mainstream thinking.

The information was valuable . editing was poor. The book was less focused than"innoculated" . The author will not be accepted by serious scientists due to the over generalizations about the.000066 percent who control us . He would do better sticking to facts instead of accusing too generally all pharmaceutical companies and government. I want to read this but without the speculation of the international cabal.

All should read this book. I suggest more edits to use less initials of medical terms. The information was valuable . editing was poor. The book was less focused than"innoculated" .

I did not like this book.

The rhetoric's overblown, the writing is bad, the editing unprofessional at best.

The author may have important points, even valuable ones, but undercuts his message innumerable ways. I found it actually painful to read, in places.
