And it’s just normal behavior for those who are ridiculing an eventual truth.
I often talk about the three stages of truth when discussing the agonizingly slow pace with which mainstream medicine (disease care) is accepting the cold hard facts about disease–that 80% of our healthcare dollars are spent on chronic diseases that could be easily prevented or reversed with a whole food, plant-based diet. That agonizingly slow pace is because we are very early in the first stage of the three stages of truth:
Stage 1. Ridiculed. We know that we are very early in this stage because the “medical system” is pretty much ignoring the WFPB movement at the moment. Most doctors still eat meat and dairy themselves and truly believe that we all “need” to eat animal protein to be healthy. But they won’t be ignoring us if the Biden Moonshot Cancer Initiative announces that they are looking into the efficacy of Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s laboratory cancer findings as they relate to humans.
Stage 2. Violently Opposed. As noted above, if the Biden Initiative seriously begins to consider a plant-based solution to cancer, many affected industries around the world will move swiftly to this second stage of truth acceptance. And there will be incredibly violent opposition from those industries whose financial performance would suffer: mainstream medicine, Big Pharma, the meat/dairy/egg/fish production chain, and thousands of other businesses whose profits depend on all of the above.
Stage 3. Accepted As Being Self-Evident. While we are still very early in the first stage, with today’s world of 24/7 news and global electronic communications among billions of people, a powerful truth that affects the health of all 7.4 billion residents of planet Earth might pass through those stages very quickly. Let’s just hope that the Biden Moonshot Cancer Initiative will be the catalyst for making rapid transition to acceptance begin to happen.
Meet Dr. James Bennie. In the following 4-minute video, he describes the reaction of his “disease-care” peers to his own career shift from pushing pills toward helping patients adopt a disease-reversing, whole food, plant-based diet. But let’s not blame those doctors. They chose the field of medicine to help people and they’re all just doing what they were trained to do. Eventually, like Dr. Bennie has done, they will all have to figure out a new way to make a living as we approach Stage 3 of the most powerful truth in the history of humanity.
As for the Biden “Moonshot” Cancer Initiative mentioned earlier, here are five blogs that I have posted on that topic since January 17.
- Letter to VP Joe Biden. Your war on cancer can be won…(1-17-16)
- My second letter to VP Joe Biden in seven days…(1-23-16)

This just in: I was just advised by Office Depot that the jumbo, poster-size cancer letter mentioned above, is being delivered by UPS to The White House today.
