The FDA "partner" of the Medical-Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex
In an unusually candid comment for a senior government official Dr.
Herbert Ley, former FDA commissioner, remarked: “The thing that bugs me
is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It Isn’t. What the
FDA is doing and what the public thinks it’s doing are as different as
night and day.”
"Over the last 80 years, organized medical groups and pharmaceutical
companies, using lawyers, bribes, lobbyist, insurance companies and the
strong arm of the Food and Drug Administration, have been very busy. They
have corrupted elected officials to pass laws to remove any competition.
They have crushed Natural Doctors, Natural Medicine, and Self-Care. Their
goal is to monopolize health care and make us dependent on medical doctors
and pharmaceutical drugs. It almost worked!" Dr. Richard Schulze
"We have watched them pass more and more laws restricting our rights; they have made many healing herbs,
foods and even nutrients illegal. Natural health professionals that flourished
a few decades ago are now barred by law to practice, and Natural Doctors,
Holistic Healers, Health Food Store Owners and even family members of the
sick have been arrested and jailed for using natural remedies. Big
drug companies have been accused of putting profits above patients, spinning
false PR campaigns and more. Here are some of the most shocking facts about
the pharmaceutical industry."
"The total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an
astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical
system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast,
the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697,
while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251" Gary Null PhD
Dr. Benjamin Rush MD - "Unless
we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into
an underground dictatorship... To restrict the art of healing to one class
of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille
of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have
no place in a republic... The Constitution of this republic should make
special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."
Benjamin Rush, MD, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and personal physician
to George Washington
Jerome Kassirer M.D former editor-in-chief of the prestigious New England
Journal of Medicine. writes: "Some physicians become known as whores." This is strong language in
Kassirer's look at how big business is corrupting medicine—but according
to Kassirer, one doctor's wife used the word "whore" to describe her husband's
accepting high fees to promote medical products. Such personal anecdotes
distinguish Kassirer's look at the conversion of America's health-care
system into a commercial enterprise. Kassirer notes the range of conflicts
of interest between profit-centered business and people-centered medicine,
such as the drug industry's huge expenditures (in the billions) for courting
doctors to use their products, for recruiting physicians to tout their
drugs or, more slyly, to present seemingly objective medical discussions
that, on closer examination, do favor the company's product over others.
The Medical Mafia, How To Get Out of It Alive
doctors who try to adopt an approach which threatens the
current medical and pharmaceutical situation often end up suffering persecution from the "mafia"
which range from public ridicule, loss of research funding, suspension
of medical licensing (just ask Ms Lanctot and many more). Ms Lanctot says that our greatest illness
is that of submission, fueled by fear and our fascination with security
and protection which are only fantasies at best.
In her acclaimed book, THE MEDICAL MAFIA: How To Get Out of It Alive and Take Back Our Health and
Wealth, Guylaine Lanctot, M.D. writes that the medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals
whose main objective is profits, and whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic
of good health. Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything
goes: lies, fraud, and kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople
of the drug companies. They are rewarded with research grants, gifts, and
The principal buyers are the public - from infants to the
elderly - who MUST be thoroughly medicated and vaccinated...at any cost!
Why do the authorities forbid alternative medicine? Because they are serving
the industry, and the industry cannot make money with herbs, vitamins,
and homeopathy. They cannot patent natural remedies. That is why they push
They control medicine, and that is why they are able to tell
medical schools what they can and cannot teach. They have their own sets
of laws, and they force people into them. That is a mafia. This sensational
expose' also uncovers the truth behind vaccines, AIDS, cancer, the World
Health Organization, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Bank, and more.
This book is about so much more than the corruption among medicine,
pharmaceuticals, government and "Health" Organizations like the WHO. It
about regaining our health, our sovereign right as individuals, our freedom,
self respect and love for our fellow man. While the current and corrupt
"Medical Mafia" poison, maim and kill millions no one is happy with it;
patients or doctors, except those who profit from it; the "industry" which
involves expensive testing, toxic drugs and sweeping global population
Ms Lanctot offers a solution and the good news is that it is in OUR
hands. It involves claiming our right to make our own decisions about our
health and that of our children and recognizing that same right in others,
along with easy to follow suggestions about how to seek a responsible client/consultant
relationship with a medical care practitioner.
Exposing the Pharmaceutical 'Business with Disease'
Rath, M.D. - "In recent years the pharmaceutical industry has been
exposed as a multi-trillion dollar ‘investment business with disease’ the
future of which is dependent on the continuation and expansion of diseases.
The very existence of the pharmaceutical industry is currently threatened.
Damage claims from the deadly side-effects of one single drug are bringing
down Bayer, the flag ship of this industry. The ensuing ‘domino effect’
would inevitably cripple this largest investment sector on earth. At the
same time, scientific advances in non-patentable natural health offer effective,
safe and affordable alternatives to the multi-trillion dollar market of

Dr. Henry Jones, M.D. "Soon after the medical monopoly was formed,
it began to push its agenda of destroying all competition. A well-organized
and -funded nationwide purge of all non-M.D.s was undertaken. Over the
course of the first half of the Twentieth Century this medical monopoly
managed to shut down over forty medical schools. Their idea was to keep
the number of doctors low in order to keep fees up. After WW II the medical
monopoly started rigidly controlling how many of each medical specialty
it would allow to be trained. So, ophthalmologists, orthopedists, dermatologists,
obstetricians, and others began to be in short supply. And of course when
supplies are low, fees are high. The medical monopoly also managed to outlaw
or marginalize over seventy health care professions. Protection of the health-care
consumer was, as always, the rationale for this power grab. Whether the
object of destruction by the medical monopoly be homeopaths, midwives,
chiropractors, or internet prescribers, the purge is conducted in the same
manner. No scientific proof or research data is offered to discredit these
practitioners. The entire approach is one of character assassination directed
at their profession. "

To protect the strategic development of its investment
business against the threat from effective, natural and non-patentable
therapies, the pharmaceutical industry has – over an entire century - used
the most unscrupulous methods, such as:
- Withholding life-saving health information from millions of people. It
is simply unacceptable that today so few know that the human body cannot
produce vitamin C and lysine, two key molecules for connective tissue stability
and disease prevention.
- Discrediting natural health therapies. The most common way is through global
PR campaigns organized by the Pharma-Cartel that spread lies about the
alleged side effects of natural substances – molecules that have been used
by Nature for millennia.
- Banning by law the dissemination of information about natural health therapies.
To that end, the pharmaceutical industry has placed its lobbyists in key
political positions in key markets and leading drug export nations."
What Really Goes on in Medical Trials?
What really goes on in medical trials? Are the results really as they
seem, and is the drug that is being tested as effective - and safe - as
the manufacturer claims? In truth, we have no way of knowing, because nobody
is testing the testers. It should be the function of drug regulators, such
as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the USA's drugs watchdog.
But a recent survey discovered that the
FDA has inspected just 1 per cent
of medical trials that were carried out between the years 2000 and 2005.
There's no registry of clinical trials, and the FDA is too under-resourced
to carry out any further checking. Arthur Caplan, chairman of the department
of medical ethics at the University of Pennsylvania, commented: "In many
ways, rats and mice get greater protection as research subjects than do
humans." (Source: New
York Times, 1 October 2007)

Most Doctors Who Set Guidelines Have Industry Ties
"The vast majority of doctors involved in establishing national guidelines
on disease treatment have
financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry that could potentially
sway their recommendations and inappropriately influence thousands of other
physicians.Eighty-seven percent of guideline authors had some type of relationship
with drug companies." Dr. Mercola
"The medical industrial complex refers to the close-knit association
of organized medicine with pharmaceutical manufacturers and governmental
medical regulatory agencies. The connections between these groups is of
course, a web of money, power, and prestige. Selling medical drugs is very
big business. Medical research is dependent on $ billions of grants from
the National Institutes of Health (N.I.H.) and the private pharmaceutical
industry. The two are closely interlocked; managers in one tend to come
from success in the other with many examples of interchangeable personnel."
"Licensed doctors are easy to control. All practicing U.S. physicians must

medicine, That's who! And who sponsors and who provides the speakers for
C.M.E. credited seminars? The pharmaceutical industry and it's great funded
corps of academic researchers, that's who!U.S. physicians are captive audience
for pharmaceutical advertising. This applies to other countries as well.
They learn which drugs to prescribe. They do not learn of alternative procedures
and perhaps better ways of caring for their ill patients."

American Medicine Can Causes More Harm Than Good
"Progress in medical science is, as a rule, achieved only after overcoming
the manifestations of a fixed mental status, ranging all the way from violent
and vitriolic opposition down to apathy and deadly inertia." Dr.
Edwin F. Bowers
In his acclaimed book
Death by Medicine, Gary Null, Ph.D., offers a definitive review
and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health
statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than
good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR)
to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC,
1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually
for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to
tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. This is a stunning compilation of facts that documents
that those who seek to abolish consumer access to natural therapies are misleading the public. Over 700,000
Americans die each year at the hands of government-sanctioned medicine, while the FDA and other government
agencies pretend to protect the public by harassing those who offer safe alternatives.
Prescription for Disaster is an in-depth investigation into the symbiotic
relationships between the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, lobbyists,
lawmakers, medical schools, and researchers, and the impact this has on
consumers and their healthcare. Prescription for Disaster takes you on a
journey through the tangled web of big business, the way disease is treated
today, and the consequences we suffer as a society. During this thorough
investigation, we take a close look at patented drugs, why they are so
readily prescribed by doctors, the role insurance companies and HMO's play
in promoting compliance, and the problem of rising health care costs. We
examine the marketing and public relations efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical
companies, including sales reps, medical journals and conferences. Further,
we look at alternatives to traditional pharmacology and drug therapy, such
as vitamins and nutritional supplements, and why they are often perceived
as a competitive threat to the drug manufacturers.
What Doctors Don't Tell You...
Lynne McTaggart, author of
Doctors Don't Tell You : The Truth About the Dangers of Modern Medicine
writes that Americans have become so accustomed to following
doctors' orders that many prescriptions, medical tests, and surgical procedures
are accepted without question. This blind faith can be dangerous! Modern
medicine offers us a wide range of powerful treatments for ailments large
and small. But did you know that some common "cures" come with serious,
life-threatening risks, or may do nothing at all? This groundbreaking book,
written by an investigative journalist, exposes questionable, harmful,
often life-threatening medical practices which all consumers should be
aware of, including treatments for asthma and arthritis, cholesterol-lowering
drugs, and heart surgery.
Linda Johnston, MD, DHt - "Many efforts were used to advance
the allopaths by discrediting, restricting and abolishing the Homeopaths.
Typical were the laws passed in the early 1800's to prevent any practitioners
of medicine other than the allopaths from being able to go to court to
collect non-payment of fees. In every case, these and other similar laws
were unenforceable and extremely unpopular with the citizenry. All were
repealed within a few years. Undaunted, the allopathic doctors then turned
to their own medical societies rather than the legislative process to carry
out their desire for effective restriction of Homeopathy. Allopaths granted
themselves the right to restrict society membership, which was tantamount
to licensing powers. Fines were levied against anyone practicing medicine
without such a society membership. They had successfully usurped the power
to control who could practice. Eventually even these fines were also rescinded
due to unpopularity with the citizens.
Pennsylvania and New York were the
first states to forbid membership in the society by medical doctors who
practiced Homeopathy. State medical society membership and representation
in the AMA required that these societies purge themselves of any member Homeopaths.
After 1847, all state societies did this, except Massachusetts. In addition,
professional exchange, consultation and even conversation between allopaths
and Homeopaths were banned. This ban on interaction between the two groups
is a striking example of how a private organization, the AMA, could completely
flout the public will, and take punitive action for something that was

Can Big Pharma Endanger Our Animals?
The FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is responsible for regulating
drugs and food additives used for animals--both food-producing animals and family pets. The FDA encourages veterinarians and animal owners
to report adverse drug experiences and product defects associated with animal drugs or
animal devices (such as thermometers, glucose meters and bandage materials). Adverse
drug experiences can include side effects or other problems
The FDA has released information concerning
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) for pets-- including
Metacam, Deramaxx, Previcox and Rimadyl -- that shows they
have been connected to 22,000 cases of illness in dogs, almost 3,000 of which were fatal!
Previcox is the veterinary version of the Vioxx (prescribed for arthritis in humans).
Vioxx was pulled off the market by the FDA after thousands of people ended up dead after taking the drug.
Yet, the same company continues to push Previcox which has the same risks and causes deaths in animals.
The FDA has received more than 4,000 reports of dogs getting sick after
getting a shot of ProHeart 6. And more than 400 dogs have died nationwide.
In 1962, the Delaney Clause was modified to permit the FDA to approve the use of
carcinogenic compounds in food-producing animals if certain conditions were met.
"The FDA felt that food-producing animals could be exposed to carcinogenic drugs and not necessarily
pass cancer-causing chemicals on to humans," Woodrow Knight, Ph.D., director of the CVM's Division of Production Drugs.
Although controlled studies are performed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of
veterinary drugs products, these studies might not identify small groups of animals at higher
risk of experiencing adverse events. Post-marketing monitoring of adverse events
provides the government, manufacturers and veterinarians with critical information
about the safety and efficacy of products. If adverse events occur, reporting them
allows the government, manufacturers and veterinarians to investigate and determine
if the product's labeling or use should be changed. Adverse events are rare and the
majority of them are minor, but some can be life-threatening.
The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act gives FDA the legal authority
to approve and regulate drugs for animals. Before a drug company can market
an animal drug, the company must get the drug approved by FDA. However, in 2010 at least two veterinary drugs made by Teva Animal Health, Inc.,
a division of Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, were recalled by the FDA, which shut the company down.
The recalls involve two commonly used injectable veterinary drugs: butorphanol, a fast-acting opioid used to
control pain from surgical procedures in dogs and cats, and the anesthetic agent ketamine.
Ketamine is part of a "cocktail" of drugs that induces anesthesia in animals, including dogs and cats.
It can be used, usually with valium, prior to surgery, a dental cleaning and sometimes as a form of
restraint for procedures such as an imaging scan. It's not the only drug that can be used in this way,
but it's one of the most common.
FDA does not regulate vaccines for animal diseases.
Veterinary biologics, including vaccines
for animal diseases, are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Big Pharma Bribes Doctors to Hook Your Kids on Drugs

If you disagree with your doctor regarding the medical treatment of
your children, they can be taken away from you, put in a foster home, and
you can be arrested for endangering the health and welfare of your child.
There are many people jailed every year, put there for disagreeing with
medical doctors and their policies. In order to break free from the clutches of organized medical crime, pharmaceutical drug cartels and the monstrous insurance companies, we must all work to change the unconstitutional laws
that monopolize health care.
Corruption is endemic in the pharmaceutical industry in America.
Big Pharma is corrupting doctors to further their greed. Profit comes first, ethics, well being of patients are secondary.
Too many doctors are caught in this web of greed. In 2008, Biederman was nailed by Congressional investigators for taking
$1.6 million from drug makers from 2000 to 2007 and failing to report most of this loot to his university, a major conflict of
interest in violation of the rules. In a February 26, 2009 deposition given by Biederman to several states attorneys
(who were claiming that makers of antipsychotic drugs defrauded state Medicaid programs by improperly
marketing their medicines)....
For decades, the majority of American doctors, mental health professionals,
the media, and the general public have yielded to the disseminations of
Harvard psychiatrist Joseph Biedeman who successfully evangelized for more
children -- and younger children -- to be medicated with powerful psychiatric
drugs. The blowback from ADHD drugs is reported in the current July 2009

drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, and Vyvanse.
Psychiatric drugs cause major changes in brain chemistry and in behavior.
International drug regulators warn that the drugs we are doling out to kids

INSANEPSYCHIATRY A Profession Run Amok February 16, 2002 - There is no drug that can cure modern psychiatry.
This is a profession that is close to routinely practicing medical terrorism
by shamelessly over-prescribing drugs to people of all ages, often for
phantom diseases and for purposes that have no rational basis in science.
What’s needed is something akin to a War Crimes Tribunal to investigate
psychiatry’s relationship to major pharmaceutical companies. Haul all the
champions and psychiatry associations in and determine their involvement
with money-grubbing schemes and the abuse of patients. And let me re-emphasize
this point: this is a medical specialty that is second to none in ripping
off and abusing patients. The situation has long been out-of-control. It
is no longer a matter of a few bad apples screwing everyone left and right.
It's become a full-scale assault on humanity." Nicholas Regush
The Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) estimated in 2005 that 9% of boys and 4% of girls
in the U.S. were taking ADHD stimulant medications; and according to a
2007 study, ADHD-drug prescriptions rose by almost 12 percent a year between
2000 and 2005. ADHD drugs are either the "amphetamine-like" methylphenidate
(e.g., Ritalin and Concert) or actual amphetamines (e.g., Adderall and
Vyvanse), so it should not be surprising that long-term use is associated
with many hazards. The current Scientific American Mind piece, authored
by Edmund S. Higgins, clinical associate professor of family medicine and
psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina states, "Methylphenidate
has a chemical structure similar to that of cocaine and acts on the brain
in a very similar way." In February 2009, neuroscientists at the Rockefeller
University reported cocaine-like structural and chemical alterations in
the brains of mice given methylphenidate.
Reckless and Contaminated Medical Industry
Fear of the Invisible is the story of a ten-year investigative journey into a reckless
and contaminated medical industry. The author takes her readers on a journey
into the very heart of the hunt for viruses - to the key experiments that
were performed to prove that these invisibly small particles cause diseases
that often were previously blamed on toxins or bacteria. It sheds light
on the extraordinary assumptions underlying much of this research into
viruses - and the resulting vaccines and antiviral medicines.
There is much research here that will be totally new and horrifying
to most readers. The author cites, for example, a senior World Health Organization
(WHO) scientist reporting that the MMR vaccine is contaminated with chicken
leukosis virus, and that they have decided not to tell the public and to
continue to make the vaccine with eggs from contaminated chickens. She
also cites a report from a major MMR vaccine manufacturer stating that
their vaccine is contaminated with cellular degradation products - and
cannot be cleansed. It seems they stay silent with the public because to
confess this would reveal that they cannot purify the vaccines given to
our children. A US court decision in 2008 has linked autism with vaccine
contamination.This is not surprising given the degree of contamination
documented here - contamination that seems inevitable given how the vaccines
are manufactured using cells from slaughtered wild monkeys, chicken embryos
and cancers. The author cites her sources by name - and gives references
and Internet links where they are available.
She also gives evidence on how US
biowarfare researchers have tried to create new agents to destroy human
immune systems - and reported working on a bacterium to make it a hospital
superbug. Did they manage to create HIV? Rev. Jeremiah
Wright might have thought so - but what is the evidence
for this? The author critically examines this - and the evidence for another
theory put forward to her by a senior professor. he said that HIV may well
have contaminated the polio vaccine. She learns that chimps were used in
vaccine manufacturing so widely that HIV could easily have spread in a
vaccine without any need for military intervention. She then set out to
find why HIV spread so far and so fast. Was it in a vaccine? She needed
to know more about HIV so went to the foundation research widely held today
to have found this virus and proved it caused AIDS.
Pharmaceutical Drug Racket report by the General Accounting Office in the United States revealed
that 51.5 per cent of all drugs introduced between 1976 and 1985 had to
be relabeled because of serious adverse reactions found after the marketing
of these drugs. These included heart, liver and kidney failure, fetal
toxicity and birth defects, severe blood disorders, respiratory arrest,
seizures and blindness. The changes to the labeling either restricted
a drug's use or added major warnings. According to the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA), 1.5 million Americans were hospitalized
in 1978 as a consequence of taking drugs and some 30 per cent of all hospitalized
people are further damaged by their treatments. Every year, an estimated
140,000 Americans are killed because of drug taking (21) and one in seven
hospital beds is taken up by patients suffering from adverse drug reactions.
