Modern Medicine is a Disease

Abraham Flexner, educated in Germany and America, on staff at the Carnegie Foundation, and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, sourced the American medical reformation following US Congressional acceptance of his "Flexner Report."

This infamous treatise exclusively benefited the Anglo-American IG Farben-Rockefeller petrochemical-pharmaceutical alliance that vilified every form of natural healing to monopolize healthcare.

Based on Flexner's report, advancing the Rockefeller's agenda, the US government exclusively imposed medicine's reliance on deadly chemical drugs, purposefully entirely overlooking nutrition.

Practioners of alternative healing methods consider the application of chemical toxins and surgeries to be allopathic medicine.

The Allopathic approach to healing is a far cry from Hippocratic method of healing which attempted to use natural methods of balancing 'humors.'

"The term "allopathy" was invented by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. He conjoined allos "opposite" and pathos "suffering" as a referent to harsh medical practices of his era which included bleeding, purging, vomiting and the administration of highly toxic drugs. These practices were based on the ancient Greek humoral theory which attributed disease to an imbalance of four humors (i.e., blood, phlegm, and black and yellow bile) and four bodily conditions (i.e, hot, cold, wet and dry) that corresponded to four elements (earth, air, fire, and water). Physicians following the Hippocratic tradition attempted to balance the humors by treating symptoms with "opposites." - William T. Jarvis, Ph.D

The reliance on deadly chemical drugs is based upon the philosophy of Santorio Santorio, also known as Sanctorius. Rather than describing the body and its functions in terms of Aristotelian (and Galenic) elements and qualities, Santorio argued throughout his career that the fundamental properties were mathematical ones, such as number, position, and form.

The body was like a machine, the workings of which were determined by the shapes and positions of its interlocking parts. This was a radical break with traditional medical theory and natural philosophy, in which the discourse was about qualities and essences (what is it that makes an apple an apple, or a liver a liver?), and in which mathematical properties such as size and position were considered accidental because they gave no information about the essence of an object.

Santorio now made these accidental properties central to his view of nature and medicine. While the central metaphor of Aristotelian natural philosophy and Galenic medicine was organic, Santorio made it mechanical: the clock (or, more generally, the machine) became the metaphor for nature opening up the window for biochemistry and, later, molecular biology.

"How does a physician subscribing to "first do no harm" find himself or herself prescribing either drugs that are inherently harmful or drugs at hazardous levels? The answer is not complex. "Follow the money" is all one needs to do." - Tom Pula

"It is possible to stop most drug addiction in the US within a very short time. Simply make all drugs available and sell them at cost. Label each drug with a precise description of what effect - good or bad - the drug will have on the taker. This will require heroic honesty. Don't say that marijuana is addictive or dangerous when it is neither, as millions of people know - unlike "speed," which kills most unpleasantly, or heroin, which can be addictive and difficult to kick." - Gore Vidal, 1970

"The reason for encouraging independent studies of clinical trials is that doing so can offer clues to risks and dangerous side effects that begin to show up in significant numbers only after the drug is on the market." - Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

Supreme Court ruling exempts generic drug manufactures from lawsuits !!!

Karen Bartlett vs. Mutual Pharmaceutical Company 12-142

The US Chamber of Commerce and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America ("PHRMA") argue that exposing generic pharmaceutical manufacturers to state law tort liability will negatively impact the American healthcare system by denying physicians and patients in some states access to certain generic medications. Specifically, the US Chamber of Commerce and PHRMA contend that, since generic pharmaceutical manufacturers distribute their products through a vast and complex distribution system, it will be nearly impossible for generic drug manufacturers to distribute certain drugs to only some states. Thus, the US Chamber of Commerce and PHRMA allege that the difficulty of tailoring the distribution of certain generic medications will encourage generic pharmaceutical corporations to stop selling certain generic medications altogether.

Under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, federal laws represent the supreme law of the land and may preempt or override state laws. The Hatch-Waxman Act allows generic drug makers to bypass extensive testing requirements and enter the market if they can prove that their generic drug is equivalent to an approved brand-name drug and carries the same labeling.

In PLIVA, Inc. v. Mensing, the Supreme Court held that the "sameness" requirement of the Hatch-Waxman Act preempted state law duties that had imposed stricter labeling requirements on generic drugs.

US Supreme Court ruled that federal law related to pharmaceutical regulations preempts a person's ability to sue in state courts and allege that a generic drug is designed badly.


FDA monkeys


Justices cited the fact that all generic drugs and their manufacturers, some 80% of all drugs consumed in the US, are exempt from liability for side effects, mislabeling or virtually any other negative reactions caused by their drugs. In short, the Court ruled that the FDA has authority over pharmaceuticals in the US. And if the FDA says a drug is safe, that takes precedent over actual facts, real victims and any and all adverse reactions.

Immediately upon the Supreme Court's ruling, both drug manufacturers and Wall Street investors were celebrating. As one financial analyst pointed out, pharmaceutical corporation profits should skyrocket going forward. Not only do the pharmaceutical corporations no longer have to worry about safety or side effects, they are exempt from the multi-million dollar court-imposed settlements awarded to victims of their drugs.

"Today's court decision provides a disincentive for generic makers of drugs to monitor safety of their products and to make sure that they have a surveillance system in place to detect adverse events that pose a threat to patients," Michael Carome, Public Citizen's Health Research Group

Aspirations of being elevated to a position outside of nature, where the natural physical laws of nature can be preempted, ultimately result in disappointment. The only thing that will ever elevate living human beings physically out of nature, making them immune to nature and reality, is death.

The US FDA (FDA) turned to a nonprofit front group erected by Shaw Science Partners, a public relations firm that specializes in launching new drugs ," to help the public understand direct-to-consumer drug ads with a new web site - EthicAd. EthicAd, the nonprofit behind the FDA site, is funded by Shaw Science Partners and its own board members. Shaw Group founder Michael Shaw admitted that "if not all, almost all" of EthicAd's funders "do work for industry." EthicAd shares the same physical address as Shaw Science Partners.

To understand how social control through drugs works one must understand the human mind.

Commercial messages are ingrained by endlessly repetition.

"When patients ask for a drug, they tend to get the drug regardless of whether it is appropriate for them." - Joel Weissman, health policy expert, Harvard Medical School

"According to the 2005 Partnership Attitude Tracking Study, 40% believe that prescription medicines are "much safer" to use than illegal drugs. Furthermore, the same study concluded that 31% believe there's "nothing wrong" with using prescription medicines without a prescription "once in awhile." The truth of the matter is, these controlled substances are not just highly dangerous, but they can prove lethal." - Joseph T. Rannazzisi, May 16, 2007

"International treaties negotiated in 1912, 1925, 1931, 1936, 1948, 1953, and the omnibus 1961 Single Convention, all defined an addicting drug as a substance that generated effects similar to those produced by opiates or coca." - John J. Coleman

The point to remember is this:

"Many commonly prescribed medicines have been shown to cause cancer in animals. Hormone replacement therapy is among the most controversial medications in this regard. Estrogen can promote uterine as well as breast cancer. Millions of women have taken hormone replacement therapy to ease symptoms of menopause. How many have developed cancer because of this treatment is unknown.

A surprising number of other prescription medications have warnings in their labels about cancer.

For example, the popular heartburn medicine omeprazole (Prilosec©) causes abnormal cell growth and stomach tumors (carcinoids) in rats. Spironolactone (Aldactazide©, Aldactone©) is a blood pressure medicine, sometimes prescribed for hormonal imbalances and facial hair growth in women, causes tumors in rats. The prescription topical skin treatments, Elidel© and Protopic©, are associated with lymmphoma and skin cancer.

The FDA has warned against using these drugs in children 2 and younger. It also states: ''The long term safety of Elidel© and Protopic© are unknown."

The rheumatoid arthritis injections Cimzia©, Enbrel©, Humira© and Remicade©, expensive bio-tech drugs have been associated with lymphoma or other cancers.

"In the New England Journal of Medicine, Sept. 25, 2008, investigators noted a higher incidence of cancer in subjects taking Vytorin©." - Joe Graedon, pharmacologist & Teresa Graedon, doctorate medical anthropology, nutrition expert

"Taking menopause hormones for five years doubles the risk for breast cancer, according to a new analysis of a federal study that reveals the most dramatic evidence yet of the dangers of these popular pills." - Marilynn Marchione 12/13/08

"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgement 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." - Marcia Angell, MD, "Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption" 1/15/09

pharmaceutical advertising

"Just as a cake recipe requires you to use flour, sugar and baking powder in the right amounts, your brain needs a fine chemical balance in order to perform at its best." - Web site text advertising the antidepressant Paxil®

"In addition to questions of FDA oversight, shouldn't we visit the issue of direct pharmaceutical advertising to the consumer? That is propaganda, not information. Clear, correct, balanced drug information should be freely available to anyone who wants it."- Mary Jeanne Buttery MD

90% of pharmaceutical manufactures marketing budget goes to selling physicians on the benefits of using drugs to deal with any and all health problems the patient may be experiencing. The rest goes to advertising to the general public.

"The FDA allowing the pharmaceutical industry to spend billions of their customers' dollars stoking inappropriate demand for their products by direct to consumer advertising and trying to counteract this with the posting of difficult to interpret information on obscure websites is like hosing gasoline onto a fire with one hand and squirting it with a water gun with the other." - Hyman J. Milstein MD


2004 Pfizer signs a settlement stating it would no longer market drugs for non-FDA approved uses and pays a fine of $430 million in criminal fines and civil penalties.

2005 18 US Senators and 62 US Represenatives own stock in Pfizer. Drug industry spending on advertising has more than doubled from $11.4 billion in 1996 to $29.9 billion in 2005.

"It's an unbearable cost to a system that's going broke. The Pfizer and Lilly cases involved the illegal promotion of drugs that have been shown to cause substantial harm and death to patients." - Jerry Avorn, professor Harvard Medical School

Pfizer's marketing program offered doctors up to $1,000 a day to allow a Pfizer salesperson to spend time with a physician according to a whistle-blower lawsuit filed by John Kopchinski who worked as a salesman at Pfizer from 1992 to 2003.

2003 Bayer pleads guilty to violating the federal Prescription Drug Marketing Act, paying $257 million including a criminal fine for its marketing of Cipro®.

2004 Pfizer admitted criminal marketing of Neurontin®, agreeing to pay $420 million.

2005 Eli Lilly pleads guilty and pays $36 million for its illegal marketing of Evista® for off-label uses.

2009 Pfizer settles for $2.3 billion with the government over off-label marketing for non-FDA approved uses.

$1.3 billion criminal fine for kickbacks and marketing. $1 billion is paid under the False Claims Act.

The drugs involved are Bextra® (an anti-inflammatory drug), Geodon® (an anti-psychotic drug), Lipitor® (a cholesterol drug), Norvasc® (anti-hypertensive drug), Viagra® (erectile dysfunction), Zithromax® (antibiotic), Zyrtec® (antihistamine), Zyvox® (an antibiotic), Lyrica® (an anti-epileptic drug), Relpax® (anti-migraine drug), Celebrex® (anti-inflammatory drug), and Depo-provera® (birth control).

"Our pharmaceutical industry has been running amok. A good start might be to ban all consumer advertising of pharmaceuticals, and the multiple billions saved each year could be channeled into across-the-board price reductions." - Burt Hermey




drug dectetives

journalism and pharmaceutical manufactures

"Health reporters may become entangled in the same kinds of ethical conflicts they often expose when accepting industry-sponsored awards and relying on corporate public relations offices. Journalism awards consisting of cash prizes and all-expense-paid trips given out by pharmaceutical corporations are among the more "astonishing" financial ties between journalists and pharmaceutical corporations." - Roni Caryn Rabin, November 21, 2008

2002 The New England Journal of Medicine announces it would will accept journalists who accept money from drug companies because it is too difficult to find journalists who have no ties.

When investigative journalists make enquiries they are referred to a press liaison officer for information. Press liaison officers refer the journalist to other experts with favorable opinions and to patients whose opinions have been carefully screened. Training and education programs are sponsored by the "health care" industry with professorships funded by pharmaceutical corporation grants.

The Embrace Award for reporting on urinary incontinence consists of trips to Washington, D.C., and Paris is offered by pharmaceutical firms Eli Lilly and Boehringer Ingelheim.

Television programming produced for doctors' waiting rooms serve as a platform for pharmaceutical advertising and yet that television programming is presented as journalism.

"Pharmaceutical corporations work really hard to get their message out to the public and physicians through advertisements and continuing medical education and all the other things people hear about, so it makes sense they would go after the media as well." - Dr. Steven Woloshin, Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy Journalism



In Recall, a Role Model Stumbles

Child Medications Recalled


pooh corner Rx

"A way to cut health-care costs is to change the way medicine is practiced. Most practitioners write expensive prescriptions rather than address the real cause of most illness: stress and unhealthy life-style choices, not to mention poverty and lack of health care. Sometimes the cheapest treatment (such as exercise, diet and relaxation) is the most effective one." - Ellen Winer RN

"Doctors are taught that mistakes are unacceptable. Medical mistakes are therefore viewed as a failure of character and any error equals negligence. No one is taught what to do when medical errors do occur." - Gary Null, PhD; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; Dorothy Smith, PhD; Carolyn Dean

"In the broader area of adverse drug reaction data, the 250,000 reports received annually probably represent only 5% of the actual reactions that occur." - Jerry Phillips, associate director FDA Office of Post Marketing Drug Risk Assessment


deadly prescription pills


2002 New England Journal of Medicine study: one in four patients suffered observable side effects from the more than 3.34 billion prescription medications filled in . The drugs with the worst record of side effects were selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and calcium-channel blockers (used to decrease blood pressure or hypertension.)

One-in-20 autopsies uncover problems that could have been averted - saving the patients' lives - but were not, owing to misdiagnoses. A Harvard Medical Practice Study found that physician errors were about 60 percent more likely to be diagnostic than due to drugs, and misdiagnoses about 50 percent more likely to be negligent than not. Lawsuits for misdiagnoses are about twice as common as for drug-related errors and result in the biggest payouts by insurance companies.

" The American medical system is headed for multiple failures. The spiraling cost of healthcare is well known: $7,100 per person this year, projected to increase to $12,000 in 2015 and compounding at more than double the rate of inflation. Medical care gobbles up one-sixth of the GDP.

Canada spends only 60% as much per person on healthcare as America. Since 1980, the longevity of all Canadians has improved more rapidly than that of white Americans, who typically have the best health care. Britain spends only 40% as much as we do on healthcare. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, middle-class insured Americans "are much less healthy than their English counterparts".

Americans spend twice as much per person on healthcare as the other 21 wealthiest countries and yet data from the World Health Organization show that we live the shortest amount of time in good health. America wasted more than $650 billion in 2005 on unnecessary and often harmful care. American and international studies show that the more a healthcare system relies on primary care, the better the outcomes and the lower the cost. American medicine is heavy on specialists and getting heavier. In just the last eight years, the number of graduates of American medical schools choosing careers in family practice and adult primary care has plummeted by more than half.

Our healthcare system is designed to maximize profits. Our federal government now relies entirely on market based, pro-business solutions to all social problems. No politician wants to be tarred with the charge of promoting "socialized medicine." Even our nonprofit medical instiutions shape the care they offer based on their own bottom lines instead of the health needs of the communities they serve. The Food and Drug Administration is much better at protecting the interests of the drug and medical-device industries than those of patients." - John Abramson, clinical instructor, Harvard Medical School, author of Overdosed America

pharmacueticals are good !

cash flow

If you trust your doctor in prescribing the right drugs for you, you might like to know that the pharmaceutical industry has started a new program to help bypass the caps on the price of drugs sold in California related to workmen's compensation claims. If these drugs are bought through a prescription then the price controls kick in but if they are sold directly to the individual by the doctor then the price controls do not apply. A doctor who prescribes a 90 tablet bottle of 800 milligram ibuprofen can clear a profit of $65.50 on every bottle sold according to DispenseXpress which buys drugs in quantities and repackages them for sale through doctors.

One question: If a doctor has a choice between two medications to prescribe, has the opportunity to make a few bucks by prescribing one and nothing by prescribing the other, which drug is he likely to prescribe? After all it is all about cash flow!


Record 4.02 billion prescriptions in US in 2011



pain chart

painkillers = partial pain control

"Pain is unavoidable. To be human is to be born into pain." - Charles Eisenstein

Painkillers do not kill the pain they just make pain easier to endure for a short period of time. Once they have worn off the pain returns. The only solution that works overtime for pain reduction is good nutrition.

Merck sold $2.5 billion worth of Vioxx®(rofecoxib) in 2003. In December 2005 it was discovered that the clinical trial of Vioxx®, conducted to gain approval by the FDA, conveniently neglected to mention the three individuals who suffered heart attacks during the clinical trial. David Graham of the FDA Office of Drug Safety stated that Vioxx® has caused as many as 140,000 cases of heart disease and killed up to 56,000 people.

"Merck's Vioxx® has killed 44,000 people and injured 120,000 others. Only in America could you kill 44,000 and not go to jail and get a raise." - Dr. Doug Henderson and Dr. Gary Null

A study which concluded that even low doses of Vioxx® increase the risk of heart attack by 50% was released 3 months late to allow Merck to complete a propaganda offense stating that even lower doses of Vioxx® than those studied in the low dose study should be allowed.



NSAIDs

"It has been estimated conservatively that 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur among patients with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis every year in the US. This figure is similar to the number of deaths from the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and considerably greater than the number of deaths from multiple myeloma, asthma, cervical cancer, or Hodgkin's disease." - J.S. Hochman, M.D., Executive Director of the National Foundation for the Treatment of Pain 2003

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually abbreviated to NSAIDs, are drugs with analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects - they reduce pain, fever and inflammation.

More than 100,000 people are hospitalized each year because of adverse reactions to NSAIDs. More than 15,000 people die, often because of compliciations caused by bleeding or perforated ulcers.

Drugs in this class include ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®), diclofenac (Cataflam®, Voltaren®), meloxicam (Mobic®), naproxen (Aleve®, Naprosyn®) and indomethacin (Indocin®). In addition to digestive-tract damage, NSAIDs can raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, as well as injure kidneys and the liver.



Zelnonn®


The FDA has reports of diarrhea so severe, called ischemic colitis, in users of the irritable-bowel treatment Zelnonn® that it caused such complications as low blood pressure and fainting. The FDA has received 20 reports of ischemic colitis, since Zelnonn® went on sale in 2002, fourteen patients were hospitalized, four died. The Food and Drug Administration advised patients who experience new or worsened abdominal pain or blood in their stools to stop taking the drug and call a doctor.

Research released in late 2005 shows that an individual that uses the popular prescription heartburn drugs - Prilosec®, Prevacid®, and Nexium® - are more prone to getting a potentially dangerously severe diarrhea caused by clostridium difficile bacteria.

In December 2006 the Journal of the American Medical association reported that the use of Nexium®, Prilosec®, Prevacid®, Protinix® reduces calcium absorption in the small intestine resulting in increased risk of hip fractures. Long term users had 260% the average risk of hip fracture.



Chantix®

Chantix® (varenicline) is a drug to help overcome addiction to chemically engineered tobacco.

Varenicline is suspected in various adverse drug event reports of causing a wide spectrum of injuries, including serious accidents and falls, potentially lethal cardiac rhythm disturbances, severe skin reactions, acute myocardial infarction, seizures, diabetes, psychosis, aggression and suicide according to the FDA.

Pfizer produced a great example of stealth advertising - a web site called MyTimeToQuit.com. The advertisement has the look and feel of a public service announcement, and mentions neither Pfizer, nor the popular smoking cessation drug Chantix (varenicline). The advertisement represents a growing trend in drug advertising called "help-seeking ads," which don't mention a drug by name, but instead address the condition the drug is meant to treat, and then drive viewers to a toll-free 800 number or a web site that offers an option to learn more about a prescription medication meant to treat the condition. This is a sneaky but legal way to advertise drugs that bad side effects by not mentioning the drug by name. The corporation is not required to list bad side effects as it would in television advertisement to comply with FDA rules.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison offers "a smoking cessation course, funded by Pfizer, the maker of a smoking cessation drug; a program on restless legs syndrome, funded by Boehringer Ingelheim, the maker of a drug that treats the condition; and a course on premenstrual dysphoric disorder, funded by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals."



Zonegran®

FDA has warned that the epilepsy drug Zonegran® can cause a certain type of metabolic disorder that can increase the risk of kidney stones and bone diseases. The FDA said doctors need to be aware that treatment with zonisamide can cause metabolic acidosis, a disturbance in the body's acid-base balance that results in excessive acidity of the blood.

Viagra® & Cialis®!

2008 Erectile dysfunction drug manufacturers spend $237.2 million in 2007 and $313.4 million in 2008 marketing Viagra® (Pfizer), Cialis® (Lilly) and Levitra® (GlaxoSmithKline).

FDA warns consumers of True Man and Energy Max that "dietary supplements" marketed as treatments for erectile dysfunction contain ingredients that can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels in some users.

Xenadrine EFX®

FTC fines the makers of Xenadrine EFX®, One-A-Day WeightSmart®, CortiSlim® and TrimSpa® $25 million in January 2007 for making false advertising claims which included rapid weight loss, cancer prevention, reduction in risk of osteoporosis and Alzheimers.


Aprotinin®

Aprotinin®, also called Trasylola, a heavily marketed still under patent Bayer drug, causes kidney failure sending an estimated 10,000 people a year to kidney dialysis centers. Aprotinin® also increases the risk of heart failure by 109% and stroke by 181%.


recombinant activated factor VII

Recombinant Activated Factor VII® is an experimental drug used on severely wounded soldiers in Iraq. It costs six thousand per dose. Side effects include blood clots leading to strokes, heart attacks and pulmonary embolisms.

"It's a completely irresponsible and inappropriate use of a very, very dangerous drug." - Jawed Fareed director of homostasis and thrombosis research at Loyola University Chicago and a specialist in blood clotting and blood thinning medications



Vytorin® and Zetia®

2007 Merck and Schering-Plough sells $5.2 billion of the anti-cholesterol drugs Vytorin® and Zetia®. Vytorin®, which combines the cholesterol drug Zetia® with the traditional statin drug simvastatin, was found to be no better than simvastatin alone for reducing plaque buildup in the carotid arteries.

In fact, patients taking Vytorin® actually had slightly more plaque buildup during the trial than those taking simvastatin alone. Merck and Schering-Plough completed the ENHANCE study in 2005 but failed to announce the results.

"Today's announcement that the ENHANCE study failed to find any positive benefit from the addition of Zetia® to a common, inexpensive, generic therapy raised concerns that attempts were made to mask the minimal value of this new drug."- Representative John Dingell, Committee on Energy and Commerce chairman 1/15/08

"In light of today's results, which were released nearly two years after the ENHANCE trial ended, it is easy to conclude that Merck and Schering-Plough intentionally sought to delay the release of this data." - Representative Bart Stupak, chairs the oversight subcommittee

"The pro-life, Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak led a small but powerful bloc of Democratic lawmakers to oppose the bill because of its language on federal funding of abortions. Stupak received a death threat. Facing outside spending in his district and a vitriolic political climate, he decided not to run for reelection. " - Chris Good, The Atlantic Mar 23, 2011



calcium suppliments and hormone therapy

A massive federal study, the $18-million Women's Health Initiative published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that calcium supplements made no significant difference in woman's bone density and did not significantly reduce bone fractures.
Calcium plus vitamin D supplementation and the risk of fractures

Eric T. Poehlman built a reputation as one of the leading authorities on the metabolic changes that come with aging, particularly during menopause; he published more than 200 journal articles over two decades of research. Eric T. Poehlman publish utterly fraudulent research alleging hormone replacement injections as a therapy for menopause falsifying 17 grant applications to the National Institutes of Health and fabricating data in 10 of his papers that were submitted between 1992 and 2000. Eric T. Poehlman plead guilty to civil, criminal and administrative charges.

An earlier Women's Health Initiative study showed hormone treatment after menopause conferred more risks than benefits.

2007 State court jury in Philadelphia found Wyeth "malicious, wanton, willful or oppressive" in the manufacturing, marketing and sales of Prempro menopause pill. Mary Daniel, after using the hormone therapy pill, contracted breast cancer.

Wyeth paid ghostwriters to produce medical journal articles favorable to its female hormone replacement therapy Prempro®. As early as 1997, Wyeth paid the medical writing firm DesignWrite to publish favorable journal articles about Prempro® under academics' names.

Around 5000 lawsuits wait to be heard over the hormone therapies Prempro® and Premarin®.

"Newly unveiled court documents show that ghostwriters paid by a pharmaceutical corporation played a major role in producing 26 scientific papers backing the use of hormone replacement therapy in women. The articles, published in medical journals between 1998 and 2005, emphasized the benefits and de-emphasized the risks of taking hormones" - Natasha Singer, August 4, 2009

The Council on Hormone Education sponsors a University of Wisconsin-Madison online course entirely funded by a $12 million grant from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. Thirty-four of the 40 Council on Hormone Education member physicians have financial ties to Wyeth. Medical professionals without ties to Wyeth called the course materials "not good science" and "pure, undisguised marketing."


Phenergan®

"Almost nine years ago, I was sick to my stomach from a bad migraine headache, so my doctor prescribed the anti-nausea drug Phenergan®. But the giant drug company Wyeth - the manufacturer of Phenergan® - did not warn my doctors not to use the IV-push method of administering the drug, which can cause gangrene and amputation. And Wyeth knew that at least 20 other amputations had already occurred from administering Phenergan® in this dangerous way. Because of Wyeth's negligence, I lost my arm. My life as a professional musician changed forever.

A Vermont jury agreed that Wyeth negligently caused my amputation and awarded me compensation. But Wyeth, the entire drug industry, and the US Chamber of Commerce - with strong support from the Bush administration - took my case to the Supreme Court, saying that just because the FDA approves drugs, people injured by those drugs should not be compensated in our court system (a legal theory known as "pre-emption"). That argument made no sense. The FDA is overworked and underfunded, and it depends on the drug companies themselves for information about problems with prescription medications." - Diana Levine

In Wyeth v. Levine the US Supreme Court held that approval of a medication by federal regulators does not shield the manufacturer from liability under state law.

phenylpropanolamine and catastrophic stroke

1982 FDA report warns that phenylpropanolamine has "the ability to cause cardiovascular effects, cerebral hemorrhage and cardiac arrhythmias."

Two years later a memo from the medical services department at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, which made the phenylpropanolamine products Triaminic® and Tavist-D®, referred to phenylpropanolamine as "an agent known to cause hypertension and stroke," yet the pharmaceutical industry accelerated their marketing of phenylpropanolamine, winning FDA approval to sell prescription phenylpropanolamine products on an over-the-counter basis and even introducing flavorful new formulas for young children.

The pharmaceutical industry consistently challenged any notion that phenylpropanolamine could be dangerous and dismissed evidence to the contrary.

Tracy Patton, at 37, and Tricia Newenham, at 15, had catastrophic strokes.

Only hours before the catastrophic strokes each victim had taken an over-the-counter medicine containing phenylpropanolamine the active ingredient in scores of popular nonprescription decongestants and diet aids.

1999 Landmark $5 million Yale University study sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry concludes the use of phenylpropanolamine is associated with an increased risk of catastrophic stroke. Tracy Patton and Tricia Newenham, who had taken Triaminic® cold syrup, were among hundreds of phenylpropanolamine consumers who had catastrophic strokes.

The pharmaceutical industry launches a yearlong campaign to keep the results quiet and stall government regulation. By the time the phenylpropanolamine is removed from over-the-counter medicine, 13 months and hundreds of strokes later, the companies has reformulated their brand names with little interruption in sales or cash flow. The pharmaceutical market for phenylpropanolamine, estimated at $500 million to $1 billion anually, is saved and in the interim, Americans continue to purchase phenylpropanolamine products off the shelf assuming they were safe.

The pharmaceutical industry hoped to survive the 2000 cold season without pulling phenylpropanolamine products. Early in November 2000 two weeks after an FDA advisory panel concluded that phenylpropanolamine could be hazardous, an official with Bayer, which made Alka-Seltzer Plus® with phenylpropanolamine, drafted a proposed "phenylpropanolamine crisis action plan."

The crisis action plan's stated objectives: "Delay mandatory implementation of FDA recommendation. Blunt PR impact by highlighting as questionable study conclusions as they pertain to cough/cold products."

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
