It’s Time to Think Outside the Cage – Dr. Charu Chandrasekera


The Medical Illusion – Evotion Films

Today, we still have no cures for ALS, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, most cancers and virtually all major diseases and we’re still 60 years away contrary to what is being promoted. The Canadian government, charities and universities continue to invest millions of tax and donor dollars in biomedical research that has a 95% failure rate. The Medical Illusion explores the issues facing the health system while examining the future of medicine; a transition to human biological innovations. Some of these innovations are available now such as, In-vitro, organ on a chip, 3D human printing and others, however, they are essentially being ignored in favour of the current model. Unless an urgent transition begins, millions of Canadians will suffer and die needlessly in the decades to come.
