I have read
that it is hard work to give money away
responsibly. Philanthropists need to make sure that opportunities
are real, that projects will have high leverage (high benefits-to-cost
ratio), and that the money will
be managed properly.
Let me make
it easy for you. When you read the material on this website, you
will see that insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) research and
implementation may be one of the greatest philanthropic opportunities
there is a lot of evidence that IPT is real:
1. Good scientific backing for the idea
that IPT works.
2. More than 130 doctor-years of experience, practiced by 12
enthusiastic doctors over 75 years, in five countries.
3. Many excellent case histories of patients with cancer
and a wide range of other diseases.
If IPT is a placebo, it is a really great placebo.
expect your medical advisors to know anything about IPT. Very few
people know about it yet. Have them read this website before they
leverage of a philanthropic investment in IPT is potentially astronomical.
Based on an analysis by economists at the University of Chicago, I estimate
that a few million dollars invested in IPT research and implementation
will set off a mushrooming chain of events that will bring humanity
benefits worth at least several trillion dollars. Leverage like this is
rarely found even in the business world. (Examples are Microsoft
and Yahoo!) And this is not to mention all the suffering to
be relieved, and the many, many millions of lives to be saved.
Implementation of IPT worldwide could have results comparable to ending
a major war.
website I develop in detail the picture that IPT may address many of
the big problems of humanity: Cancer treatment.
HIV/AIDS, herpes, hepatitis C, malaria, other parasites, and other
infectious diseases which plague the poor countries and threaten the
rich. Drug-resistant disease organisms. Respiratory and
cardiovascular diseases. Neurological diseases. And many
let this big picture overwhelm you. We can approach these
applications one at a time. If even just two or three of these IPT
applications are successfully developed, it will be cause for worldwide
the money will be managed properly and spent wisely. It is
my personal feeling that IPT deserves its own nonprofit
organization. We don't have one yet, but we can start under the
wing of an established nonprofit organization. Any guidance,
people, and infrastructure that come along with philanthropic funding
will be greatly appreciated. And there are so many wonderful
talented people who could become great board members.
will go up and down, your Ferrari and Gulfstream and dream home will
depreciate and get sold to someone else. But this is one
investment that will pay huge dividends to humanity for decades and
centuries to come.
introduction. It is time for you to explore this website...
