They’ve been linked to road rage, pathological gambling, and complicated acts of fraud. Some make us less neurotic, and others may even shape our social relationships. It turns out many ordinary medications don’t just affect our bodies – they affect our brains. Why? And should there be warnings on packets? Continue reading
Back in 2013, ProPublica detailed what seemed a stunning development in the pharmaceutical industry’s drive to win the prescription pads of the nation’s doctors: In just four years, one doctor had earned $1 million giving promotional talks and consulting for drug companies; 21 others had made more than $500,000.
Six years later — despite often damning scrutiny from prosecutors and academics — such high earnings have become commonplace. Continue reading
Google has gone all-in with Big Pharma to push drugs and disease, while simultaneously blocking access to life-saving health information. Gone are the days when people could easily find information on nutrition, supplements, natural remedies and alternative therapies, but Google’s not stopping at censorship for health and wellness — the tech giant is also pushing pro-Big Pharma propaganda on their search engine. Continue reading
During the reign of Barack (the Terrible) Obama, mass shootings prompted a White House declaration that community mental health centers would be created across America, in order to spot and treat persons before they committed violent acts. Now, under Trump, we are seeing a similar reaction, with a twist. Continue reading
Aspartame, an artificial sweetener that is 200 times sweeter than sugar, easier/cheaper to produce, store, transport and has an indefinite shelf-life that pests and vermin won’t touch. What more would you want, right?
More and more studies show links to serious health problems and diet disorders. Eliminate ‘soft drinks’ completely because you can only go from bad to worse by switching to DIET drinks. “Sugar Free” is a marketing ploy, not a health enhancement… ~ ac
The “norm and practice” of Pharmaceutical companies is to vehemently deny the most serious adverse side effects of their products.
This industry’s success in concealing the truth about the serious harm caused by their drugs and vaccines has been aided and abetted by government officials in the FDA and the CDC.
In the case of Prozac, and the other drugs in the SSRI antidepressant family of drugs, the worst adverse effects include uncharacteristic violent outbursts in the form of suicide and homicide — including mass shooting sprees. Manufacturers of these drugs have committed multiple serious crimes to cover-up the deadly side-effects of these drugs. Continue reading
Aug. 27, 2019 – Following the landmark ruling in Oklahoma on Monday against Johnson and Johnson that found the company responsible for helping fuel the opioid epidemic, US drug czar James Carroll called out drug makers for their role as “one of the factors into the start of the crisis.”
An Oklahoma judge found Johnson & Johnson Opens a New Window. and Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies liable for stoking the opioid crisis in the state and said the company must pay $572 million, far less the $17 billion that the state was seeking. Continue reading
Psychiatric drug use is on the rise in the U.S., with one one out of every six Americans now taking some type of medication in this category. This is highly concerning given the scary side effects and poor effectiveness of many of these drugs, but there is one particularly disturbing aspect of this trend that seems to get glossed over, and that is the extraordinary number of children who are taking such drugs. Continue reading
Weaponized opioids are at the core of the real white genocide.
Are people of European descent an endangered species? That is what white nationalists claim. They argue that wealthy elites are conspiring to “replace” white people with Asian, Middle Eastern and African immigrants.
People of European descent are indeed in severe demographic decline worldwide. Patrick Buchanan’s “The Death of the West* presciently sounded the alarm: “Between 2000 and 2050 . . . 100 million people of European stock will vanish from the Earth. In 1960, people of European ancestry were one-fourth of the world’s population; in 2000, they were one-sixth; in 2050, they will be one tenth. These are the statistics of a vanishing race.” Continue reading
Americans deserve a more transparent, accountable system where cutting-edge medicine is delivered to doorsteps across the country at reasonable rates.
Medicine has come a long way in 5,000 years of recorded history, but progress has hardly been even and neat. Health care and the public policy that shapes it are often more of a zig-zag toward progress than a straightly paved road. Continue reading
Today, children are being diagnosed with, and often medicated for, ADHD at an astonishing rate.
Childhood exuberance is now a liability. Behaviors that were once accepted as normal, even if mildly irritating to adults, are increasingly viewed as unacceptable and cause for medical intervention. High energy, lack of impulse control, inability to sit still and listen, lack of organizational skills, fidgeting, talking incessantly—these typical childhood qualities were widely tolerated until relatively recently. Today, children with these characteristics are being diagnosed with, and often medicated for, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at an astonishing rate. Continue reading
Your chances of being prescribed opioids for a minor injury like an ankle sprain could vary widely depending on where you live, a new study has found
Researchers say that patients seeking medical care were on average three times more likely to be given opioids in ‘high-prescribing states’ like Georgia and Nebraska than in ‘low-prescribing states’ like West Virginia and Michigan.
The variation increased to 10 times more likely between Arkansas, where the most amount of patients were given opioids, and North Dakota, where the least amount were. Continue reading
6 conditions are often treated with these drugs but shouldn’t be
Every year doctors prescribe millions of antibiotics. But about one-third of the antibiotics prescribed in doctors’ offices are unnecessary, according to a report released earlier this year by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Unless an infection is caused by bacteria – which is usually not the case – the drugs will have no effect. Continue reading
The industry wants to put in a dent in your wallet to line theirs
The pharmaceutical industry, as usual, is doing whatever it can to profit off the suffering of Americans. Recent filings show ‘Big Pharma’ spent a record amount of money on lobbying in 2018. While you and your family are struggling to figure out how to pay for prescriptions, pharmaceutical companies are trying to figure out how to dig an even deeper hole in your wallet to make theirs fatter.
