Big Pharma is one of the largest and most profitable industries in the world. Their ability to ‘buy influence’ over medical schools, government, policy makers and the media is essentially unlimited! This FACT was revealed by former Pfizer VP, Peter Rost, M.D.
Because Big Pharma spends millions lobbying and advertising, most people are unaware of this ongoing tragedy and threat to the people’s health. Here are but a few examples of critically important stories that never got past Big Pharma’s gatekeepers:
Internist Suzanne Humphries, MD of the International Medical Council on Vaccination, explains how she was deceived during her medical education and how she discovered the truth about vaccines in this excellent video: Suzanne Humphries on Vaccines
Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science. In 2005 he published Why Most Published Research Findings are False in the PLoS MEDICINE journal.
The results of around half the clinical trials have never been reported leading to bad treatment decisions, [bad ‘standards of care’], missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated. As a result, men of honor who care about health – versus profiteering from illness – launched an important campaign in January 2013 calling it AllTrials. They created and circulated a petition calling for the reporting of all clinical trials, past and present, and have gotten 87,700 signatures so far.
“All trials past and present should be registered, and the full methods and the results reported. We call on governments, regulators and research bodies to implement measures to achieve this.”
The researchers of this monumentally important 2013 study, Institutional Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and the Myth of Safe and Effective Drugs, warned that meeting the needs of the drug companies has taken priority over meeting the needs of the patients; adding that unless this corruption of regulatory intent is reversed, the situation will continue to deteriorate.
An extraordinary paper, The Health Hazards of Disease Prevention, by a courageous doctor and investigative medical researcher, Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic, was presented to the British Society for Ecological Medicine in March 2011. It exposed the dirt on 30 years of secret official transcripts of meetings of UK government vaccine committees and the supposedly independent medical “experts” sitting on them with their drug industry connections.
Dr David Lewis, former EPA/CDC scientist, described the fall of so-called government agencies to abject cronyism and corruption, knowingly putting the lives of millions of Americans in jeopardy, in his book Science for Sale. During his career Dr. Lewis was employed by private corporations, universities, and government agencies. He discovered that all three institutions have been corrupted and have been producing the non-scientific results their funders pay them to produce.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell.
Former insider Dr. Peter Rost, MD, a former vice president of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world (Pfizer), shares the truth about the ties between the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Rost is a whistleblower of the entire pharmaceutical industry in general. He is the author of The Whistleblower, Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman. Considering his work experience, it would be an understatement to say that he is an insider expert on big pharma marketing and deception.
Former Big Pharma insider, John Virapen, blows the whistle on Big Pharma in his book. He exposes that pharmaceutical companies want to keep people sick. They want to make others think that they are sick. And they do this for one reason: money. More than 75 percent of leading scientists in the field of medicine are “paid for” by the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical companies increasingly target children.
A top physician who used to work for drug giant Merck & Co., creator of the Gardasil vaccine for cervical cancer, has made some groundbreaking public admissions about the dangers and ineffectiveness of this controversial jab. During a recent interview with the French magazine Principes de Sante, Dr. Bernard Dalbergue confessed that Gardasil is a worthless vaccine that not only fails to protect against cervical cancer but also puts individuals at risk of paralysis, encephalitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and a host of other debilitating ailments.
In his book Dr. Peter Gøtzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, exposes the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are the third leading cause of death in America after heart disease and cancer.
“The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life. Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors. The reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe. The patients don’t realise that, although their doctors may know a lot about disease and human physiology . . . they know very very little about drugs that hasn’t been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry.”
Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients
Dr. Ben Goldacre’s book exposes Big Pharma’s deceptive practices. “We like to imagine that medicine is based on evidence and the results of fair testing and clinical trials. In reality, those tests and trials are often profoundly flawed. We like to imagine that doctors who write prescriptions for everything from antidepressants to cancer drugs to heart medication are familiar with the research literature about these drugs, when in reality much of the research is hidden from them by drug companies. We like to imagine that doctors are impartially educated, when in reality much of their education is funded by the pharmaceutical industry. We like to imagine that regulators have some code of ethics and let only effective drugs onto the market, when in reality they approve useless drugs, with data on side effects casually withheld from doctors and patients.”
Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to a variety of doctors and U.S. teaching hospitals for promotional talks, research and consulting, among other categories. Use this tool to search for general payments (excluding research and ownership interests) made from August 2013 to December 2015.
“The last annual report of the Rockefeller Foundation”, reported Bealle, “itemizes the gifts it has made to colleges and public agencies in the past 44 years, and they total somewhat over half a billion dollars. These colleges, of course, teach their students all the drug lore the Rockefeller pharmaceutical houses want taught. Otherwise there would be no more gifts, just as there are no gifts to any of the 30 odd colleges in the United States that don’t use therapies based on drugs.
“Harvard, with its well-publicized medical school, has received $8,764,433 of Rockefeller’s Drug Trust money, Yale got $7,927,800, Johns Hopkins $10,418,531, Washington University in St. Louis $2,842,132, New York’s Columbia University $5,424,371, Cornell University $1,709,072, etc., etc.”
