2009 SWINE FLU PANDEMIC

2009 Swine flu was a false pandemic; Drug companies made additional $18B from fear created

Here is a one-minute video clip of the television coverage of the 2009 Swine flu pandemic.

The 2009 Swine flu pandemic was a “false” pandemic.

The WHO overestimated predicted deaths as much as 49-fold.

The WHO estimated that 2.0 to 7.4 million people could die worldwide, whereas the CDC estimates that only 151,000 to 575,000 people died worldwide.

More than half the experts who were advising WHO (11 of 20) had ties to drug companies.

Drug companies made an additional $18 billion in revenues from the fear created.

DRUG COMPANY LIES

Purpose of drug company sponsored studies is to maximize profits, NOT health

The purpose of drug-company-sponsored drug studies is to maximize profits for the drug companies notes John Abramson, MD from Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, author of the book Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. How The Pharmaceutical Companies Are Corrupting Science, Misleading Doctors, And Threatening Your Health.

“So what are dedicated clinicians to do?” Abramson asks in an article published in The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in 2005.

“The first step is to give up the illusion that the primary purpose of modern medical research is to improve Americans’ health most effectively and efficiently.

“In our opinion, the primary purpose of commercially funded clinical research is to maximize financial return on investment, not health.”

DRUG COMPANIES

Drug researchers often do NOT have access to their own data in drug-company-sponsored studies

Researchers who do drug studies that are paid for by the drug companies often do NOT have access to the data from their own trials notes John Abramson, MD from Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, author of the book Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. How The Pharmaceutical Companies Are Corrupting Science, Misleading Doctors, And Threatening Your Health.

“However, the drug companies typically retain control over the data from their sponsored trials so the majority of the researchers don’t have open access to the results from their own studies,” Abramson writes in an article published in The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in 2005.

“The editors, peer reviewers, and editorial writers who are trusted to evaluate the accuracy of the analyses are thus often not able to do so.”

DRUG STUDIES

I no longer believe drug studies or drug researchers paid by drug companies

I no longer believe drug studies paid for by the drug companies or drug researchers paid by the drug companies.

I know what they are all going to say.

They are all going to say, “These drugs are safe and effective and more people should use them.”

This is because the ONLY people the drug companies will hire are those people who will say these things and will help them to sell more drugs.

They will NEVER hire anyone who says anything else.

Therefore, I no longer believe drug studies or drug researchers paid by the drug companies.

“Our citizens would be far better off if we removed all the psychotropic drugs from the market, as doctors are unable to handle them,” notes Prof. Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, author of the new book “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare”.

“It is inescapable that their availability creates more harm than good.”

PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS

Psychiatric drugs create ‘more harm than good’ notes Prof. Peter Gotzsche, MD

“In 2012, I found out that the ten biggest drug companies in the world commit repeated and serious crimes to such a degree that they fulfill the criteria for organised crime under US law,” notes Prof. Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, author of the new book “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare”.

“They involve colossal thefts of public monies and they contribute substantially to the fact that our drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.”

DRUG COMPANY LIES

‘Drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs’ notes Prof. Peter Gotzsche, MD

“The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs,” notes Prof. Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, author of the new book “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare”.

DRUG MONEY

"Dr. Joseph Biederman, a world-renowned child psychiatrist, had earned far more money from drug makers than he had reported to his university [ it was revealed during a Congressional investigation in June 2008 ]," according to an article in the New York Times titled "Research Center Tied to Drug Company".

"In June [ 2008 ], a Congressional investigation revealed that Dr. Biederman had failed to report to Harvard at least $1.4 million in outside income from Johnson & Johnson and other makers of antipsychotic medicines." Read the entire article | Email this article

DRUG MONEY

Study abstract claimed antipsychotic Risperdal worked better than placebo, but this was NOT true

A study of the antipsychotic drug, Risperdal, in children with disruptive behavior disorder found that "children given placebos and those given Risperdal both improved significantly" according to an article in the New York Times titled "Research Center Tied to Drug Company".

However, the draft abstract for the study that was sent from Dr. Gahan Pandina, a Johnson & Johnson executive, to the lead author of the study, world-renowned child psychiatrist, Joseph Biederman, MD from Harvard University, who has helped fuel the 40-fold increase in the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children, and the rapid rise in the use of powerful, risky and expensive antipsychotic drugs in children, stated that "only the children given Risperdal improved, while those given placebos did not" according to the New York Times article.

"I will review this morning,” responded Dr. Biederman, according to the documents. "I will be happy to sign the forms if you could kindly send them to me." Read the entire article | Email this article

DRUG MONEY

Harvard doctor behind explosion in antipsychotic drug use in children paid $1.6M by drug makers

There was a 40-fold increase in the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children from 1994 to 2003. This dramatic increase was partly fueled by the research of Joseph Biederman MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard University, "A world-renowned Harvard child psychiatrist whose work has helped fuel an explosion in the use of powerful antipsychotic medicines in children earned at least $1.6 million in consulting fees from drug makers from 2000 to 2007 but for years did not report much of this income to university officials, according to information given Congressional investigators" notes a 2008 article in the New York Times.
