During the last few years, many of us have learned a lot more about health, science and medicine than we knew before, and consequently, we have become more interested in what keeps us healthy, as well as understanding that there are many more options than just pharmaceutical treatments that can make us better when we do succumb to dis-ease.
The medical system has a vested interest in us remaining medically uneducated so they can sell us profitable cures, which creates inevitable bias against natural treatments, less profitable pharmaceuticals and unincentivized medications that may be safe and efficacious.
This is why we believe it is vital that anyone who wants to take ownership of their health, learns as much as they can about the way their body works and the effects of nutrition, the environment and our emotional wellbeing on our health outcomes.
It is through taking ownership of our health individually and as a worldwide community, that we will become stronger, healthier and sovereign.
Your anonymized data forms the international Control Group database. By contributing your data to this important pool of health information, you are helping us to build an independent source of information about our health and the impact we are having on it.
We are a worldwide, platform cooperative funded by its own members, which means there is a genuine interest in unbiased outcomes. We are not funded by corporations looking to approve or make profit from a product. When any researchers use our data to write papers and reports, we will ensure the (highly anonymized) source data is available for review – which will ensure results can be verified.
Scientists, doctors and researchers will be able to access your anonymized health outcomes so they can publish reports and papers on it. This data will not have personal contact or identifying information attached to it.
As we develop this system, we will be building a dashboard analysis tool that will allow all users of the database to be able to view and interact with the data themselves. Providing insights and knowledge to empower you to make truly informed decisions when it comes to your health.
We believe it is important that we all re-connect with our human bodies; what makes them work and what impedes them. Our health outcomes, recorded and analysed outside of a financially incentivized, biased system, will help us to look at what the life we live, is doing to us all.
When we are given a choice, we base it on the information available to us at the time. However, more than ever before, we are learning that information from previously trusted sources is misrepresented, biased and sometimes, just completely wrong.
Many of us are finding this particularly true for the food we consume, the treatments prescribed to us and the new technologies around us.
This is why we started the Control Group and why we are creating a resource of health outcome data that is completely independent, unbiased and backed by its source data.
Being a member of the Control Group Cooperative health study is a really simple thing that you and your family can do each month that really will make a difference.
This is the data we will trust when we make health decisions for ourselves and our children.
But it depends entirely on all of us to build a brand-new bank of information that tells the story of us. It takes trust to build trust, and that is what we are doing, together.
