Are Your Medications Safe?

THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION IS NOT PROTECTING US FROM DANGEROUS PHARMACEUTICALS!

Why would the FDA let claims that have been undermined by fraud appear on drug labels?

Agents of the Food and Drug Administration know better than anyone else just how bad scientific misbehavior can get. Reading the FDA’s inspection files feels almost like watching a highlights reel from a Scientists Gone Wild video. It’s a seemingly endless stream of lurid vignettes—each of which catches a medical researcher in an unguarded moment, succumbing to the temptation to do things he knows he really shouldn’t be doing. Faked X-ray reports. Forged retinal scans. Phony lab tests. Secretly amputated limbs. All done in the name of science when researchers thought that nobody was watching.

That misconduct happens isn’t shocking. What is: When the FDA finds scientific fraud or misconduct, the agency doesn’t notify the public, the medical establishment, or even the scientific community that the results of a medical experiment are not to be trusted. On the contrary. For more than a decade, the FDA has shown a pattern of burying the details of misconduct. As a result, nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses. The FDA has repeatedly hidden evidence of scientific fraud not just from the public, but also from its most trusted scientific advisers, even as they were deciding whether or not a new drug should be allowed on the market. Even a congressional panel investigating a case of fraud regarding a dangerous drug couldn’t get forthright answers. For an agency devoted to protecting the public from bogus medical science, the FDA seems to be spending an awful lot of effort protecting the perpetrators of bogus science from the public.

Much of my research has to do with follies, foibles, and fraud in science, and I knew that the FDA wasn’t exactly bending over backward to correct the scientific record when its inspectors found problems during clinical trials. So as part of my investigative reporting class at New York University, my students and I set out to find out just how bad the problem was—and how much important information the FDA was keeping under wraps.

The silence is unbroken even when the FDA itself seems shocked at the degree of fraud and misconduct.

Big Pharma exposed by insiders and many others

HONORABLE SCIENTISTS AND RESEARCHERS HAVE BEEN EXPOSING THE TRUTH ABOUT BIG PHARMA  . . . FOR DECADES!

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:

ioannidisWorld renown medical researcher exposes Lies, Damn Lies and Medical Science!

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.

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.

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.
