One of the most vital components of this Pyramid deals with our health and the institutions who decide what constitutes healthy and what constitutes safe. As with the other pieces of the Pyramid, many people around the world believe the modern medical and health organizations are largely corrupted and under the spell of what is commonly known as Big Pharma.

Generally speaking, Big Pharma is shorthand for describing the network of major multinational pharmaceutical corporations. There are a wide range of beliefs about Big Pharma, but most of them center around the idea that the pharmaceutical companies and some doctors and scientists in the medical field cooperate in ways that benefit their bank account rather than the health of their patients.

This so-called “Big Pharma conspiracy theory” has been described as a group of conspiracy theories claiming the medical community and pharmaceutical companies in particular, especially large corporations, operate for sinister purposes and against the public good. This includes potentially concealing effective alternative treatments and lying about the harm of certain chemicals. Some people also believe Big Pharma may cause and worsen some diseases.

In a 2013 paper, Robert Blaskiewicz, Assistant Professor at the University of Wisonsin, wrote that the Big Pharma conspiracy theory has four classic traits:

1. He says believers of this theory assume there is a small malevolent cabal behind it all
2. They believe that the public at large is ignorant of the truth
3. He says believers treat lack of evidence as evidence
4. He says the arguments deployed in support of the theory are irrational, misconceived, or mistaken

So what’s the truth? Is Professor Blaskiewicz correct when he says there is no evidence to support this “baseless” conspiracy? Or are there facts to back up these claims?

The Transformation of Modern Medicine 

The modern medical industry is characterized by what is sometimes known as Allopathic medicine, Western medicine or evidence-based medicine. This type of treatment tends to focus on treating symptoms and reducing pain. The beginning of this modern era of medicine can be traced back to the founding of the American Medical Association in 1847 and universities like Johns Hopkins University in 1876. With the birth of these organizations we start to see an increasingly centralized medical care system across the United States and Europe.

Opponents of Big Pharma tend to point to this centralization and the creation of new organizations like the AMA as the point where medicine shifted from traditional medicines, such as herbal medicines, homeopathy, ayurveda, and other indigenous medicines, towards a system focused on pharmaceuticals and vaccines. The critics of Big Pharma point to the involvement of the Rockefeller family as evidence of a concerted effort to monopolize the medical industry and regulation of what medicines are accepted as safe and effective.

In the early 1900’s there were hundreds of doctors operating independently across America. These doctors often offered a variety of healing modalities, including chiropractic, naturopatichy, homeopathy, holistic medicine and herbal medicine. It is around this time that the Rockefeller family began influencing the medical industry.

As noted in Chapter 1 of this series, in 1902, Rockefeller Sr. founded the General Education Board with the stated objective to support higher education and medical schools in the United States. Just as Rockefeller and his network of philanthropic organizations sought to influence and shape the direction of public education, so to did he seek to influence the medical schools across the country. While the Rockefeller family used the General Education Board to manipulate America’s education system, they also created the “International Education Board” to invest their money into national and international universities and medical schools which focused on drug based research.

While the Rockefeller’s played a large role influencing the medical schools and universities, it was the assistance of the Carnegie family that helped transform the industry via their funding the infamous Flexner Report. In 1905, steel billionaire Andrew Carnegie founded theCarnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, or simply, The Carnegie Foundation. The Foundation was granted an official charter by the US Congress in 1906, just as was done with the Rockefeller’s General Education Board.

By 1910, the Carnegie Foundation provided funding for Abraham Flexner to conduct aninvestigation into the medical doctors and practitioners around the US. This report is typically seen as a landmark in modern medicine. Much of the mainstream medical world regards it as the point when medicine shifted from an industry based on superstition and quackery to a purely scientific, evidence-based tradition. Abraham Flexner was given the resources to investigate the quality of medical education in all 161 medical schools that existed in 1910.

Flexner concluded that there were too many medical schools operating at the time and that efforts should be made to shut down schools and doctors who did not practice what the Carnegie-funded and Rockefeller-supported report deemed as evidence-based medicine. Flexner believed that the majority of those practicing medicine in the U.S. were what is commonly referred to as a “Snake Oil Salesmen”.  Flexner’s report called on American medical schools to have higher admission and graduation standards as well.  The report also called for the standardization of medical education with only the AMA allowed to grant medical school licensure in the U.S. Flexner’s recommendations ensured that by 1919 the amount of medical schools went from 161 to 81.

Flexner’s report also set the stage for the demonization of vitamins for treating various health issues. Although the first vitamins had only recently been discovered at the time of Flexner’s study, his attacks on what he deemed quackery also set the stage for downplaying the benefits of vitamins. Despite the widely known benefits of vitamins and essential nutrients, Flexner’s report was the beginning of the attempted discrediting of these remedies that continues today.

Despite the widely known benefits of vitamins and essential nutrients, Flexner’s report was the beginning of the attempted discrediting of these remedies that continues today.

After Flexner finished his report in the United States, he went to Europe to conduct a similar study which reportedly became nearly as well known as his report in the U.S. Flexner would develop a close relationship with the Rockefellers as well. In 1912, after his successful report for the Carnegie Foundation, Flexner joined the Rockefeller’s General Education Board, where he was quickly promoted to Secretary of the Board. In 1913, when John D. Rockefeller, Sr established the Rockefeller Foundation in New York City, Flexner helped merge the General Education Board with the new organization. The GEB program of medical education existed from 1913 to 1929 and distributed $94 million to 25 medical schools.

The Rockefeller’s were not content to influence the medical industry in the United States and Europe. They also took their philosophies and dollars to China. In 1914, Rockefeller put up money to establish the China Medical Board, an American organization whose mission statement was to advance health in China and neighboring Asian countries by funding medical, nursing and public health research and education. The Rockefeller’s incorporated the China Medical Board in New York and launched the Peking Union Medical College in Beijing from 1914 through 1950. The CMB also worked in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Altogether, the Rockefeller funded China Medical Board invested hundreds of millions of dollars in grants and technical support to medical universities across Far East and Southeast Asia with the goal of bringing the Rockefeller-Carnegie funded Western, allopathic medicine to the world.

One of the men who was also funded by Rockefeller was Dr. William Henry Welch, one of the founding professors of Johns Hopkins University. From 1901 to 1933, he worked closely with the Rockefellers as the founding president of the Board of Scientific Directors at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. During this time he was an advisor to John D. Rockefeller and a chief advisor to the U.S. Army’s medical department. With the backing of the Rockefellers he was able to rise to the top of a number of influential organizations and direct the transformation of medical education in the United States. Welch was the president of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Medical Association, the Association of American Physicians, the History of Science Society, the Congress of American Physicians and Surgeons, the Society of American Bacteriologists, and the Maryland State Board of Health. It was with Welch’s help that Rockefeller was able to bring to life Peking Union Medical College in Beijing. Welch hoped the college would become the “Johns Hopkins in China.”

It’s important to acknowledge that the Rockefeller guided transformation of the medical and health industry was also an act of displacement and colonization. From the outset their goal was to replace traditional indigenous medicine and traditions. Prior to the Flexner Report and the Rockefeller investments, individuals were free to decide how they want to medicate themselves and their families. This included a wide variety of medicines and rituals practiced by indigenous cultures around the world. Obviously, not every traditional or natural medicine will deliver the promised results, and there are lying, greedy characters peddling snake oil.  However, while modern medicine and science has shaped our world in invaluable ways, we still have so much to learn and understand from the original peoples of this planet. Unfortunately, the vision for medical education and science described in the Flexner report and fleshed out with the funding of the Rockefeller’s resulted in doctors being taught to focus on disease and not on a system of preventative healthcare, a system which could utilize indigenous and western medicine.
