glad bill has a backbone, and we now know the swine flu vaccine was a big profit motivated lie, which killed and injured a lot of people.

You can buy the same thing as Mucinex (guafenesin) from Walmart in a generic bottle for 88 cents.

Wow, Bill Maher you are amazing. Why not go all the way and say, they don't simply tell us to stop drinking milk to reduce mucus too, while you are at it! Check Gwen Olsen about big pharma on YouTube, its very funny also.

Western medicine chases symptoms, it doesn't cure illnesses. Of all of the thousands of big pharma commercials we're inundated with on a daily basis, how many have you actually seen that cure the condition they're advertising for? Yeah, didn't think so. Anyone arguing in favor of our current system is brainwashed beyond belief.
Cameron Alexander (2 года назад)
+sabin97 I should say, what diseases have you had that have required medical intervention to be cured?  A healthy person with influenza will not generally require any treatment to recover.  However, I should be clear, in the case of bacterial infections and other acute illnesses and injuries, western medicine can be extremely helpful.  If you break your arm, by all means go to the hospital.   The problem is that these comprise a small fraction of healthcare expenditures in the United States.  Is there a medical cure for Type 2 Diabetes?  No.  But there are tons of pills that treat symptoms.  Is there a medical cure for rheumatoid arthritis?  No.  But there are tons of pills that treat symptoms.  Is there a medical cure for fibromyalgia?  No.  But there are tons of pills that treat symptoms.  Is there a medical cure for depression?  No.  But there are tons of pills that treat symptoms.  I could go on and on and on.  Even more pathetic is the fact that there ARE cures for tons of chronic conditions and there are almost always methods of preventing them from happening altogether through proper diet and lifestyle.  Tell me, what kind of a healthcare system would continue to peddle type 2 diabetes medications with a littany of harmful side effects to an increasingly self inflicted obese and unhealthy population, rather than requiring them to make the obvious dietary changes?   It's not that every doctor is some evil profiteer looking to make money on suffering, it's that the whole PARADIGM of chronic disease is flawed in this country.  The framework is:  chronic disease comes out of nowhere -> treat symptoms of disease with daily pills -> treat side effects of these pills with more daily pills -> repeat, while it should be to tell patients how to STOP CAUSING THEIR OWN DISEASES.

+Cameron Alexander "What's been the opposite?" my experience with western medicine. whenever i get sick, the medic analyzes the symptoms and my current condition(vitals and such), and asks for any additional information they might need, and then treat the cause, not the symptoms. of course some symptoms CAN be(and regularly ARE) treated, like for example a fever, but the cause is always the focus of treatment. "What diseases have you had that have been cured?" influenza, infections, etc. the focus of the medics is always the cause, not just the symptoms. so what diseases do you have that medics refuse to cure but they keep just treating the symptoms? are you seriously saying medics are part of a massive global conspiracy to keep you sick?

Bill is right about one thing and it is not only dismissed by the other three men at the table but also avoided and dismissed by the comments here in this comment section: Exercise and eating well IS a great way to stave off medical conditions like Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure and a host of other diseases that are affecting a lot of people throughout North America and the world as well.

Evaldas Zmitra (2 года назад)
I just love how politicians throw the word "science" around without knowing what it really means to have a scientific debate. You have to present the facts and the exact studies done on that topic, so people can check for themselves if the methodology used was correct. In science there are goof offs who pull out numbers out of thin air, don't present the errors or use the wrong equipment. Thus only studies from credible universities and scientific papers should be used as an argument.
Eugene Lefebvre (2 года назад)

If you really listen to what he is saying, you'll notice that he's NOT an anti-vaxxer. Both people who are and people who are not anti-vaxxers continue to say that he is one. All he is saying is that medication and vaccines maybe aren't always the answers. Vaccination: I remember the swine flu. First of all, the dangers of it was highly exaggerated. Very few died from it. Second, the vaccine wasn't properly tested before they used it. Some kids that were injected with the vaccine they gave me got narcolepsy. (That it caused autism was bullshit, though.) But vaccines for things like polio is great. Medication: - should be used when people really need it, like when they have a real disease. But it should not be a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Try eating healthy and breathing fresh air before you ask your doctor for pills. Not everything is black and white, folks!

PLEASE WATCH the Netflix documentary, "Neurons to Nirvana: Understanding Psychedelic Medicines." Ohhh my God! And, it talks of the role Big Pharma has played in suppressing research into those illegal natural substances so many of us know and love.

Absolutely right! Follow people like me and Erin Janus on YouTube and we'll get into these issues! The western medical establishment is poisoning us to a certain extent. Natural remedies are just now finally being explored by intelligent Americans. "Let thy food be thy medicine." -Hippocrates
Adam Wagener (2 года назад)
Not sure those diseases were known in his time.  However, my personal friend Joby Weeks became a millionaire and helped lots of people heal from diseases via a food supplement.  The research scientists behind his company won a noble prize.  Good food is medicine.  F*ck the drug companies ads and brainwashing bullsh!t.  Synthetics are not always better.

On a medical issues, I prefer hear from a doctor rather than from a tv celeb. And, before someone throws up the predictable "well, go do some research yourself", googling and reading some pages on the internet is NOT research.

When drug companies lie about test , side effects , serious side effects resulting in death ,you can't expect the public to trust them or these doctors who still want to give these poisons as a treatment. I have scoliosis ,two neck injury's , a lower back injury and I was hit by a pickup truck . I don't take any pills or shots and refused surgery ,I just smoke marijuana (31yrs)and never had any problems(still don't), I eat healthy and don't drink alcohol or liquor , exercise when possible and lay down when I hurt.

why oppose legal drugs and then support illegal drugs?
Kyle Ross (2 года назад)
Because people like Bill and I are not saying that the "legal" prescription drugs should be made illegal, we're just trying to spread awareness of how so many of those "legal" prescription drugs can be just as harmful as some of the "illegal" drugs like heroin.
Sher Calatti (2 года назад)
+Paul Blake Your absolutely right!! More people die from prescription medications than marijuana which is classified as a class 1 drug along with heroin but there is one that is considered a class 2 which surprised me but METHAMPHETAMINE is in the class that a Dr. can prescribe and is okay to give to someone which they have the war on Drugs! What is wrong with this picture!! I do hope STANLEY JAMES is able to see this!!! lol

Bill is an anti-vaxer.... He has said so many good, logical things up until this point. Anti-vaxers laugh in the face of herd immunity. And then drop like flies from small pox, measles and polio.
ummm no (6 месяцев назад)
Tylran No it hasn't. Say it is genetic how do you know its not from your parents being vaccine damaged and having the mutation from that passed down genetically, and needed an environmental trigger to unlock it, and here comes the key to unlock the gene to be expressed that caused the mutation to begin with. If your kid was fine and then had its immune system hyperstimulated, and then started digressing you would look at what happened before the digression, then you would research and realize you were fucking lied to and you wouldn't go mainline whats under your kirchen sink and you damn sure wouldn't do that to your infant. Luckily for you, when this all comes to light you can hide anonymously on ytube like you never said this. Meanwhile, everyone will be autistic. Good job suppressing science.

 activation of T-cells to fight infections needs definite help from vitamin D. When a T cell recognizes foreign invaders like bacteria or viruses, it sends activating signals to the vitamin D receptor gene. The VDR gene then starts producing DVR protein, which binds vitamin D in the T cell.  Then the vitamin D bound and activated DVR produces PLC-gamma1 protein -- which allows the T cell to get started fighting the infection. When a T cell is exposed to a foreign pathogen, it extends a signaling device or 'antenna' known as a vitamin D receptor, with which it searches for vitamin D. This means the T cell must have vitamin D or activation of the cell will cease. If the T cells cannot find enough vitamin D in the blood, they won't even begin to mobilize." Flu shots do absolutely nothing to address the underlying problem of vitamin D deficiency, which is effectively hindering your immune system from working properly. In fact, flu vaccines deteriorate your immune system even further, and their side effects can be potentially letha

Most disease are caused by our diets and weakened immune system,yes the modern western world has eliminated disease that plagued us in the past but it has also brought along new ailments and illness due to the change in the environment and the foods we consume.the human body is best suited for a medittarean diet but nearly everything we consume even fruits are loaded not only with various chemicals as well as high fructose corn syrup with artificial sweetners but they are also consumed in high doses.the average American consumes anywhere between 150 to 170 pounds of refined sugars in one year, Less than 100 years ago, the average intake of sugar was only about 4 pounds per person per year. Not 150, 170, or 295 pounds,Cane sugar and high fructose corn syrup are indeed both harmful when consumed in pharmacologic doses of 140 pounds per person per year.When one 20 ounce HFCS sweetened soda, sports drink, or tea has 17 teaspoons of sugar (and the average teenager often consumes two drinks a day) we are conducting a largely uncontrolled experiment on the human species.Our hunter gatherer ancestors consumed the equivalent of 20 teaspoons per year, not per day. In this sense, I would agree with the corn industry that sugar is sugar. Quantity matters. But there are some important differences.this only gives rise to many symptons and illness in the body as well as weaking the immune system than our doctors give us medicine pharmeutical drugs to supress the symptons when the best thing that could have been done is simply to avoid it and live on a more balanced nutrition
youngatnaruto (3 года назад)
Most people are starting to realize the value of eating nutritional foods. The difference between white bread & whole wheat. Someone tried to fool us when they started enriching &/or fortifying our food. Not only has the nutritional value of our food deteriorated, so has our health. I see a correlation, there. The steady increase of disease is brought about by not having the nutrition we need. Eating foods with the nutrients we need obviously keeps our bodies healthy. For 1000's of years medicine has always been derived from something grown on this earth. We have seen what processing has done to our food, & now we are paying the price with our health. Common sense that processed medicine does not work, it masks & creates other problems to compound the problem. Common knowledge that herbs work in harmony within our bodies. Common knowledge that pharmaceutical drugs are not compatible with our biological chemistry. It is so simple that it is sad
El Jay (3 года назад)
Bill is a comedian not a scientist. Good grief. Layman see mercury in the ingredients of a vaccine but they don't realize that there is mercury in a tuna sandwich. There is ammonia in breast milk. If you don't understand chemistry or biology shut the fuck up. Bill loves to ridicule creationists who say the science isn't settled and evolutionists try and science the debate. Sorry bill the vaccines issue is no different.
El Jay (3 года назад)
+Jordan Foreman in all your research have you come across the death toll from whooping cough, measles, mumps, rubella, and polio? It is millions. Millions died from diseases scientists understood at the chemical level to create the solutions our immunity needs to defend itself. As with cheese (Phenylketonurics) or sugar (diabetics) not all genetic makeups are consistent and what is safe for most people is not safe for those with ultra rare genetic conditions. Chicken and cheese or any protein has caused brain damage and death among the population that has the PKU genetic abnormality but you're not campaigning against big bad protein are you? The viruses and bacteria before vaccines and antibiotics killed millions. Vaccines have harmed nearly nobody with the exception of a fraction of a subset with abnormal genetic conditions. You LOVE believing vaccines are bad but you're not on the side of history or science and evidence. You're not a scientist and everything that comes out of your mouth demonstrates your ignorance and your willingness to discuss subjects you don't understand. You don't understand pharmacogenomics or pharmacokinetics. You have zero credibility and zero value to add to the discussion. I don't understand where your confidence comes from but you're embarrassing yourself and wasting people's time.
youngatnaruto (3 года назад)
+Jordan Foreman Damn finally some one who isn't a fool of the propaganda the medical industry pushes out and I hate how any one who isn't one hundred percent for vaccine is deemed as anti science but the truth behind vaccines are shuttered from the public by the way did you read my previous comments

One word: Thimerosal. It is used in most flu vaccines, Your ignorance is showing... I posted a link to a site that has vaccine inserts from the manufacturers. Side effects and ingredients are listed for some.  
Jordan Foreman (3 года назад)
Vaccines can cause harm. Plain and simple. Any medical procedure that has a risk for adverse reactions should not be made mandatory (like with the passing of SB277 in California). Herd Immunity has been disproven as well. REAL immunity can only occur naturally and not through the "anitbodies" produced from a vaccine. http://www.trackingvaccinations.com/ http://www.know-vaccines.org/ http://www.nvic.org/ http://www.vaccinerights.com/exemptions.html https://vaers.hhs.gov/index http://truthaboutgardasil.org/memorial/

Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
What bothers me most about this is not that he is bringing those points up, that is valid and good thing to do, it is that he doesn't have a fucking doctor or scientist on the panel! If he was looking for the truth he would have had an expert on that panel not people with mere opinions like himself. No wonder they were trying to change the subject and things got awkward.  
Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
+nyckid10 At least you recognize a strog emotion which is always grounds for lossing objectivity. A huge part of medicine however is spent in treating the underlying causes of disease (diabetes, heart disease, most microbes...) when there is nothing to be done about the underlying causes then we try to make your life better. We as doctors stand a separate entity from "big pharma" and we are bound by LAW not to receive any compensation from pharmaceuticals, even small tokens. I am sorry you had such a bad experience, I bet your case is interesting. cheers. 
nyckid10 (3 года назад)
+Manuel Gutierrez Okay sure. Let's say you go to a doctor with a chronic debilitating illness. What will the doctor do? He will prescribe. Not because he is a bad person. But because he has 30 other patients to see that day and rather give you something for your symptoms rather than treat the underlying cause. Doctors need to get paid. They went through hell in medical school and have ridiculously high student loans. They do what they can, but within the constraints that the western medical establishment has created over decades - which has been fueled by big pharma. It's not black and white, I agree, but all I can do is speak from EXPERIENCE. I have a chronic illness, and I have a family full of doctors. I found out my underlying cause years after I was given the band aid treatment. Because of that I lost years of my life, and now am dealing with complications. This is something I am very passionate and emotional about. And no, I am not a rare case. This happens ALL THE TIME WITH MANY PEOPLE.
Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
+nyckid10 Well isn't that the definition of a blanket statement. It would be nice if the world was so black and white kid. The reality is much more complex and you need to read the actual research being done with medications or in medicine in general. The statistics are very well controlled, and so are their effects and side effects. MOST DOCTORS ARE GOOD PEOPLE, and pharma might lobby but it has nothing to say in the scientific world- when they do, they are quickly discovered. 
nyckid10 (3 года назад)
If he had a doctor or a scientist on the panel they would obviously disagree because they benefit and profit from the western medicine agenda. The more drugs they prescribe, the more patients they see, the more money in their pocket. Drug companies control doctors and "clinical trials".
MassDeicide (3 года назад)
The only thing I disagree with Bill Maher about. I don't like big pharma either, but I'm not as paranoid about it as he is. I don't buy the conspiracy theory bullshit. Yes, they care more about making money than treating people, but vaccines do much more good than harm, and we shouldn't avoid modern medicines just because the people at the top are assholes. We just need to make it more affordable (or tax-paid) and cut out insurance companies completely.
Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
Yeah he is taking a very extreme view on what seems like clearly self reporting evidence. Maher has a few more of this unscientific views and the worst part about it is that he doesn't want to hear the evidence.

For years people have struggled with cancer drugs in the treatment of hepatitis C. Now they are coming out with the Hep C treatment, that will help people tremendously and Big Pharma is charging over $100,000 for a 6 weeks treatment. What can be done about this? Need money for research lord knows I get enough money for research in overcharging Americans and insurance companies, but just to say that so many people have this disease and they finally have a treatment at a reasonable price would make billions of dollars anyway. Is disgusting. Please relay my thoughts to anyone you can in regards to this matter. You know when they are start talking about a disease in a commercial, but they're getting ready for the big push for a new drug to treat the disease disgusting people. Polio and all its close was treated by a doctor for nothing his research was in the name of mankind not these big corporations they are disgusting. The hospitals are public concerns and big business it's disgusting and what do the Republicans want to do about any of this!!

+kleineroteHex As I said those gifts that pharma companies used to give, or those "education courses" in cruises they used to hand out are now illegal and considered unethical. If big pharma gave us medical students the education we needed then why the fuck do most of us end up paying about half a mil for our education? That is a very dumb and ignorant thing to say. My point is that vaccines are not over priced like for example anti-depressants are. They make huge money because of its massive use. Vaccines are among the most effective tools we have and just because they make money doing it doesn't make it unethical, we live in a capitalist society. Wake up. and read better sources.   http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMsa0806477

+Manuel Gutierrez that's why the physicians get pharma rep visits! That is why big pharma does all the needed physician education - guess what they spread at those education sessions besides food! Vaccines were at a 25 BILLION profit in 2012  (read it herehttp://www.fiercevaccines.com/special-reports/top-5-vaccine-companies-revenue-2012) is that waht you call not very profitable? go look at some youtube videos from ex pharma reps to open your eyes!
Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
If you went to say a Bayer physician or a Merck physician then you might have a point, but physicians are strictly prohibited to favor one or another treatment as this is now considered unethical. Your level of paranoia is concerning if you think "big pharma" is spending millions of dollars all over the world convincing the medical field by making up "facts" in the off chance that they prescribe their vaccine from the bunch. Vaccines, it is important to say, are not a very profitable side of pharmaceuticals.

These guys, starting with Chris Mathews are either paid shills for big pharma, or congenital idiots.  Up to this point in time there is enough literature to illustrate that the swine flue was a hoax.. to generate revenue.  You may ask how- The pharmaceutical companies went ahead with their sales strategy, leveraged by their relationship with the CDC to global governments, which in turn, taxed their citizens.  It's a basic 'backdoor operation' for the pharmaceutical companies to make a killing on something that pretty much didn't exist.
Manuel Gutierrez (3 года назад)
Easy to say, where is this evidence you are talking about? Because according to the New England Journal of Medicine swine flu hits immuno-compromised people harder than most viruses we know. 
Cin Hus (4 года назад)
Hurray for Bill Maher for speaking out against Big Pharma!!! Vaccines and immunizations started out with good intentions, just as lawyers and government did. Their greed and corruption took over when they saw the opportunity to make people sick in the long run and use it as a way to promote and spread sickness. They put other poisons in there that create more sickness and guarantee long term medical problems... more money in their pocket!!! Nature provides cures within 10 miles of your existence in the form of natural herbs, roots and seeds. Most sickness and disease is a sign of vitamin or mineral deficiencies which are found in food, spice and herbs.
Cin Hus (3 года назад)
+Manuel Gutierrez Nope, I'm not a scientist, I'm into Nutrition... something scientist know nothing about and don't want to because they can't make any money from healthy people!!! I'm not selling anything either! The amount of vitamins and minerals in the urine has nothing to do with damage caused from deficiencies! You must be another troll... I'm not wasting any more of my precious time on you!
apachekeith (4 года назад)
Other than that I agree with immunizations, just not for stuff like the flu.
apachekeith (4 года назад)
The chances of me contracting the swine flu are so low that it's useless to get vaccinated for it. The chances of me contracting 1 of the 3 or 4 flu strains that they put out vaccinations for yearly of the 1000's of strains are so low that it's just not worth it IMO. There was a big push for the public to get meningitis vaccinations a few years back when there were less than 10 cases diagnosed in the whole province of 4 million people. I like my odds on that one. No need to panic people.
GeorgeHale1984 (4 года назад)
He doesn't argue that they work, but merely #1 that the Polio virus was ENTIRELY wiped out by vaccines (of which they helped no doubt, but other circumstances were at work as he mentions to research for yourself) and #2 because of their makeup of toxic elements (even in trace amounts) it becomes a risk assessment, that is, is it riskier for me to take the vaccine to cure common cold, which may cause Alzheimer's or suffer the common cold for a few days.

A few people having adverse reactions is nothing compared to the millions who are immunized and never have a reaction at all. I suppose we should pull Peanut Butter from store shelves because people have "problems" with it. Point is, nothing is 100% safe.

Despite you having the grammar of a 5 year old, I'm going to take the time to correct you. Vaccines are 99% effective at rendering kids immune to the disease they are targeted against. And there is nothing in modern day vaccines that is poisonous, so just quit with that line of shit. Regardless of the intent of the maker of said vaccines, their effect cannot be denied. Remember Polio? Smallpox? Shit like that? Bet you fucking don't because vaccines wiped them out. So in conclusion, fuck you

U ppl r the worse...Of coarse Vaccinations r important. Only prob is just like the Drugs they r also poisoning u and our kids... Ppl want to think its a crime to not give their kids the 16+ shots avlb now. (Did you take that many? No..) Which can do god knows what else to their kid? I say how can any loving parent inject their kid with something unless they are sure..Thats just evil to be so blind to an industry thats true goals are profit. Thank god the age of reactive meds are coming to an end

The "incentive" not to debate is that the consensus (of people who actually know what they're talking about, not scaremongers or readers of scaremongering websites) is that the positive effects of vaccines far outweigh any chance of an adverse reaction. Decades of empirical evidence supports this assertion. Maybe you would've rather lived in the 20s where vaccines were no danger to your kids, but polio, typhoid & TB (among other debilitating diseases) were all ready to cripple their health?

The man is a crank. The end. Go have your acupuncture and cannabis oil therapy. I'll take hundreds of years of scientific research over some web page coordinated by a paranoid hippy.

There are always problems with everything mate. It's not always wise to put it on a scale of "Good v. Bad". If something has a potential source of bad, it should be looked into.

well some people have had problems with vaccines, I suggest you look it up. Some people have gone to jail for giving kids vaccines that damaged them for their entire life.

I think you need to do some homework on the history of vaccines, and the negative effects that can happen to people who use them. I'm not 100% against them, but the fact is there are many people who suffered horrible negative effects from tainted, or misused vaccines. Many that were used in the 50's & 60's are no longer available because they had such horrible effects on people, or the offspring of people who used them.

hundreds of thousands of people die every year from causes made more deadly by our own corporations and government, why? Population control, we dont all volunteer for the military so they need to kill us off some way. Who hasn't seen an older person that felt great for years, go to the doctor and get new medicine they didn't need and a year later, they're dead. Thats the future for us all.

mucinx is guiafenesin........a naturally devived substance that thins mucosal secretions and actually helps get RID of mucus.........not drive it back in............bill maher is a smart guy but a scientific ignaramus

I think his point is the other stuff that goes into a vaccine and not actually getting inoculated against a disease and also if you are very healthy and not too young or old facing the disease can help strengthen your immune system so that it can take on foreign illnesses there isnt a vaccine for. skipping getting vaccinated is a bad idea if you have young, old, or sick, or pregnant family however. I myself have caught west nile and a flu from another country without a doctor' help and lived. :P

I agree with Bill on everything except vaccinations. There he's just a moron. Vaccines exist for a reason. They work
Sandra Collett (6 месяцев назад)
The CDC by their own admission say the flu vaccine only works by 10% this year and only 25% previous years. Also everyone I know that have been serial vaccinated caught the flu this year. Take at your own risk but years down the road when your chin, voice or legs begin trembling with Parkinson’s like symptoms don’t say you weren’t warned

Big Pharma, much like the Tobacco industry, finds it easier to do business in many developing countries. They have the big bucks to bribe their way around officials, which is made all the easier by a lack of regulation. So many drugs have been exposed as ineffectual and dangerous, and yet they are still on the market in many countries, even after they have been banned in some developed countries! The fact that most regulatory authorities are funded by Big Pharma helps little, needless to say.

WTF is Chris Mathews talking about? I travel for a living and go to 3rd world countries all the time and I've never once had to get a shot. God, he's such an establishment whore because he knows a huge percentage of his income is the result of big pharma sponsoring his useless show.

If that were true, why is it that Europe has a lower HIV rate than the USA when it has a nearly 0% infant circumcision popularity? Besides, every other country dismisses the benefits claimed by the USA, as shown when medical associations protested the AAP's new policy recently. Youtube won't allow me to post web addresses, so the best I can do is tell you is to check KNMG, a Dutch medical site.

Funny how Bill thinks vaccines might be unneeded but he's all for infant circumcision. Come on Bill, you're smarter than this.

Stop taking them if you feel ill though. Then you should go tell the doctor immediately.

people do not seem to get what things use to be like before vaccines, just take a look at the slums of 3ed world nations, when people dont get the vaccines they think hey, i'm not getting it, this is non-sense , but the reason they don't get it is because no one had it because of the vaccine, it's mind blowing stupidity, understandable but stupid.

Do not stop taking your medication without consulting your doctor first. The doctors and patients are the good guys. The pharmaceutical companies are suspect if anyone.
