So, a patent was granted for -
A method is provided for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, such as atherosclerosis, by administering therapeutically effective dosages of a drug comprised of ascorbate, lipoprotein(a) binding inhibitors, and antioxidants.
Why then hasn't the medical community embraced this and saved thousands of lives? According to the guidance for granting patents the government website says there are three types of patents. I'm assuming that Pauling/Rath's patent is a Utility patent as utility patents may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof.
It also goes on to say -
What Can Be Patented
The patent law specifies the general field of subject matter that can be patented and the conditions under which a patent may be obtained.
In the language of the statute, any person who “invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof, may obtain a patent,” subject to the conditions and requirements of the law.
The patent law specifies that the subject matter must be “useful.” The term “useful” in this connection refers to the condition that the subject matter has a useful purpose and also includes operativeness, that is, a machine which will not operate to perform the intended purpose would not be called useful, and therefore would not be granted a patent.
A patent cannot be obtained upon a mere idea or suggestion. The patent is granted upon the new machine, manufacture, etc., as has been said, and not upon the idea or suggestion of the new machine.
So the process identified in the patent had to have been proven as "useful" so that means it works.....what am I missing? There also is a patent for a solution that they patented that is used in bypasses, etc, to clean the gunk off the bits they are implanting.
Sometimes I think it may have been better for me to have remained ignorant of the major lies and deceptions that the medical communities have perpetrated against humanity as it's been maddening trying to get the uninformed to give vitamin C a serious trial. All the commercials now for every drug under the sun that they are hawking on TV should also be banned like the tobacco commercials were. Folks don't have a chance with all the misinformation out there.
