Something a few pages back sparked my interest...
The relationship between Brownstein and Abraham, and the mention of the fact that Abrahams is making money off of promoting iodine(not a negative in and of itself, but a point of interest).
It appears that Abraham was first on the iodine front, after a period of promoting another mineral pretty heavily(Magnesium).
I have been wary of Brownstein previously for some of his misuse of context with cited sources, and the fact that Abraham's name appears so often on the same documents raised flags for me as well...
So... I did a little digging.
Not a ton at this point as I'm pretty sick today... but,
Both Abraham AND Brownstein are paid "research doctors" for VRP, Vitamin Research Products.
Along with another doctor, Dr. Flechas, who also appears on some of their documents.
Dr. Abraham produces Idoral under trademark via Opitmox of course...
However, I went through the list of other 'research doctors' there.
Dr. Mitchell A. Fleisher has a few copywrited vitamin/mineral natural formulas as well...
As does Dr. Tim Guilford...
And Dr. Eric Hassid.
I didn't check out the ND's... I figured the trend with just the MD's was strong enough.
Here is a link to their "Meet the Doctors" page... http://www.vrp.com/meet-the-doctors
*Note: the message with the picture of the generic 'smiling friendly doctor people' picture on the right as you scroll down a bit...
"Meet VRP's Team of Doctors!"
"Curious about the brilliant minds
behind our scientific formulas?"
Anyway, what I found on that site (and via other googling) was this.
These 'good' doctors are basically getting PAID to promote supplements.
All of them, including Brownstein.
Both their own protected proprietary supplements, the proprietary supplements of the other 'research' doctors, and the general supplements sold by the company that are 'better' that the competitions generic supplements.
This is a bunch of you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours hornswaggle.
I equate this type of behavior from Doctors to those other 'Doctors' who pimp themselves out on late night infomercials selling miracle weight-loss supplements and 'make your penis bigger' libido pills.
The crazy thing is that those late night infomercial doctors ARE Doctors... just like ambulance chasers are Lawyers.
They just have no morals.
Brownstein and Abraham tarnish their own reputations by resorting to this sort of behavior.
It's truly disgusting and disturbing IMO.
