Google has been in the news a lot recently, being accused of manipulating search results in favor of a particular social or political agenda, or in favor of some crony corporate entity a la quid pro quo kind of thing.
Well, the latest Project Veritas exposé reveals that Google is actively attempting to manipulate search results to try to prevent either a Trump reelection or “another Trump” from getting elected in 2020 or 2024.
Additionally, as revealed by Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo.com and Dr. Joseph Mercola (in 2 parts, here and here), entire health related and alternative medicine related websites are being removed form Google search results, including those two very important and informative websites.
As Sayer Ji writes:
Mercola.com has been a source of whistle-blowing information about Big Pharma and Big Tech collusion for decades, so it is no surprise why Google would take this action against his platform, and similar ones. In fact, signs of the coming purge came back in 2016, when GlaxoSmithKline signed a $715 million contract to partner with Google, and with increasing partnerships with pharmaceutical companies in 2019 like Sanofi. Google’s parent company Alphabet is heavily invested in a vaccine company,Vaccitech, founded by scientists at Oxford University. Google, it appears, has become a pay-to-play operation, and contains a specific sociopolitical and economic agenda that is built directly into its search algorithms.
And Dr. Mercola explains:
Google traffic to Mercola.com has plummeted by about 99% over the past few weeks. The reason? Google’s June 2019 broad core update, which took effect June removed most Mercola.com pages from its search results. As reported by Telaposts.com: …”Generally speaking, sites negatively impacted will see a drop in rankings for many or all of important keywords or key phrases which they used to rank well for … The June 2019 Google Broad Core Algorithm Update impacted sites across the web, however, I am personally seeing the most impact on News and Health sites.”
Now, I happen to be quite dependent on those kinds of alternative Internet sites regarding health issues and especially supplements. As I have written repeatedly here, especially in my lengthy post on my years-long medical ordeal with the incompetent, dishonest establishment “doctors,” I have an ulcerative colitis condition (inflammation of the colon) and can’t have most vegetables, which are important for sources of nutrients including magnesium, zinc, vitamin K2, etc.
And also, with my inflammatory issues, because I had negative experiences with prescription anti-inflammatory drugs, I need nutritional supplements as well as certain foods that have anti-inflammatory properties. For the colon, the probiotics such as acidophilus are essential, and I didn’t know about acidophilus until I saw the information on the Internet, certainly not from any doctor! And folic acid is also important for colon health.
So we need these alternative medicine and health related websites for truthful information for those reasons, but additionally because we also learn about the truth regarding the corruption with pharmaceutical companies and the Big Pharma-FDA revolving door and the Big Agra-FDA/USDA revolving door (truthful information which will be hard to find now, obviously, because of the New Censorship Crusade by Google, Facebook and their dishonest and corrupt cohorts).
And, regarding my own past experiences, will Google be censoring out the fact that sulfasalazine (brand name Azulfidine) depletes our folic acid? Folic acid happens to be very important for colon health, and for those taking sulfasalazine they would need to supplement with folic acid. Naturally, I didn’t learn about this from any “doctor,” but from information online and on those kinds of health websites that Google wants to censor (on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies, no doubt).
However, I did see recently that some information I saw online in 2006 seems to be gone. And that is that sulfasalazine also depletes our potassium. Lower potassium levels have been shown to be contributors to high or higher blood pressure. It was in 2006 that I had higher blood pressure (which had been unusually low for years!), and this was within a year after I was told by a colonoscopy “doctor” to increase the sulfasalazine to three tablets, four times per day, which I did. After seeing that information, I reduced the sulfasalazine and my blood pressure then went back to normal. I haven’t been taking ANY prescription drugs whatsoever since about 2010 or so, by the way.
Do people even know about the relationship between low potassium and high blood pressure? Do any “doctors” know? If someone has high blood pressure then it may very well be that one isn’t getting enough potassium in the diet.
Anyway, it was also thanks to these alternative health and nutrition websites and blogs that I was able to find a study that showed that statin drugs deplete our vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is important for efficient calcium distribution, making sure the calcium we consume gets to our bones, and important to prevent calcium maldistribution, preventing our calcium from getting stored in the arteries or the heart, a.k.a. calcifications.
So, I wouldn’t have known about that without those alternative websites, that Google is now censoring, and thus I wouldn’t have been able to make the conclusion that that’s probably why my now-deceased father had the arterial blockage he had and thus his two strokes and his Alzheimer’s, a 6-year ordeal that certainly caused my mother quite a lot of stress and anguish. (If his cholesterol was a little high, then perhaps my father’s “doctor” could have had him change his diet or add foods with omega 3, etc. instead of giving him lipitor? But noooo, Dr. Establishment is beholden to the pharmaceutical companies, in this case Pfizer.)
Continuing here. In Part 2 of Dr. Mercola’s discussion of Google’s latest knocking off non-Establishment health websites, such as Mercola.com, he notes how Google uses “authoritative” sources but relies mainly on Wikipedia. But, as Dr. Mercola explains, Wikipedia is notorious for its being controlled by extremely biased editors. He posts in that article some videos and transcripts of Sharyl Attkisson’s analyses of Wikipedia.
Dr. Mercola also writes in that Part 2,
To help sway public opinion and policy, Google has also recruited law professors to back up and promote its views. According to a 2017 Campaign for Accountability report, Google has paid academics in both the U.S. and Europe millions of dollars to influence public opinion and policymakers alike.
This includes funding research papers “that appear to support the technology company’s business interests and defend against regulatory challenges such as antitrust and anti-piracy.” Some of these academics have not declared the source of their funding, even though payments have reached as high as $400,000.
In his article on this latest Google fiasco, Sayer Ji mentions some alternative search engines including StartPage.com and DuckDuckGo.com.
But, I must say, this is very distressing, especially for someone such as myself who relies on the Internet for information on my maintaining my health in the context of this digestive condition I have and given my past negative experiences with prescription anti-inflammatory drugs.
