The Illusions of Psychiatry

Medicines in Development: Vaccines

"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


"The atrocious system of poisoning, by poisons so slow in their operation, as to make the victim appear, to ordinary observers, as if dying from a gradual decay of nature, has been practiced in all ages." - Charles MacKay

"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 ad for 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."- Mary Jeanne Buttery MD

"Allowing the PHRMA to spend billions of customers dollars stoking inappropriate demand for products by direct to consumer advertising and trying to counteract this with the posting of difficult to interpret info 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

"Journalism awards consisting of cash prizes and all-expense-paid trips given out by PHRMA are among the more "astonishing" financial ties between journalists and PHRMA." - Roni Caryn Rabin, 11/21/08

"PHRMA works 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." - Dr. Steven Woloshin, Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy Journalism

First you must con-vince the physician so 90% of the PHRMA 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.

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

Investigative journalists are referred to a press liaison officer for information.

Press liaison officers refer the journalist to experts with favorable opinions and to patients whose opinions have been carefully screened.

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

Television programming produced for physician waiting rooms serve as a platform for PHRMA advertising and yet that television programming is presented as journalism.

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 admits criminal marketing of Neurontin® and signs a settlement stating it will no longer market drugs for non-FDA approved uses and pays a fine of $430 million in criminal fines and civil penalties.

18 US Senators and 62 US Represenatives own stock in Pfizer.

Pfizer offers physicians up to $1,000 a day to allow a salesperson to 'share' time according to a whistleblower lawsuit filed by John Kopchinski.

2005 PHRMA spending on advertising has more than doubled from $11.4 billion in 1996 to $29.9 billion.

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

"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, Harvard Medical School

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 antiPsychotic 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).

In Recall, a Role Model Stumbles

Child Medications Recalled

"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


1668 Merck opens an apothecary shop in Darmstadt, Germany.

adverse reactions


"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

2002 New England Journal of Medicine: one in four patients suffer observable side effects from the over 3.34 billion prescriptions filled.

The drugs with the worst record of side effects were selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and calcium-channel blockers (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.

60% of physician errors are diagnostic.

50% of misdiagnoses is deemed negligent.

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.

US now relies entirely on market based, pro-business solutions.

No politician wants to be tarred with 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 research, Harvard Medical School, 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?

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 forged 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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 the Lumière Infinie 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 coöperation. Coöperation 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.
