The War on Cholesterol is Too Profitable to Give Up

Friday, August 28, 2015 10:38 2 Comments

In spite of the so-called “change of heart” on the cholesterol issue, from the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, another headline announcing that a “New Drug Could Dramatically Reduce Cholesterol” is hitting the wires today. Amgen’s evolocumab is the second PCSK9 inhibitor drug to be approved, as Praulent had already been approved by the FDA. A cardiologist [...]

Whooping Cough Vaccination Fail

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 21:33 1 Comment

For all of the “herd immunity” evangelists who believe that everyone should be shamed into or forced to become revenue streams for the medical-pharmaceutical-government-criminal complex. To quote the article: The Reno County Health Department tells us a majority of the total cases have been vaccinated. Same thing is going on in Wichita County, Texas. And the same [...]

An Evolution in Happiness

Sunday, January 4, 2015 13:35 No Comments

A wonderful Big Pharma lampoon from the Onion: Gathering around the kitchen table to pick out their favorites, all four members of the Johnson household eagerly dug into a 38-piece AstraZeneca pill sampler that they received as a holiday gift, sources confirmed Friday. Spoof aside, this reminds me of how far we have come from Bing [...]

(Neo-Victorian?) Fools For Big Pharma

Monday, March 24, 2014 19:20 1 Comment

I don’t know who this loon is, but in spite of his lack of a wide platform, it is worth posting this piece here because, once again, it shows how intellectually feeble the vaccination nation drum beaters are as they continue to hate on and verbally bully individuals who make their own choices about what [...]

Plugging Make-Me-Skinny Pharmaceuticals

Sunday, December 1, 2013 16:44 2 Comments

This article on the Motley Fool reads like a commercial for a Big Pharma drug – complete with a partial reading of the side effects. Oh wait – it is. I continue to think there’s a potential market for obesity drugs, but the drugmakers are going to have to convince doctors that the benefits justify [...]

Big Pharma Disclaimers

Friday, June 7, 2013 6:55 2 Comments

I get a kick out of the Big Pharma commercials that intersperse the need for prescription drugs with images of ‘happy happy’ moments that reflect a joyful life. The message is that drugs = vibrant and carefree. This “low T” ad for Axiron uses images of macho guys playing baseball, which is great marketing for [...]

Popping Prescription Pills is, Like, So Fashionable. Like Wow.

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 22:35 6 Comments

Prescription pills are so fashionable among the Hollywood famous-but-depressed set that the Olsen twins (I still have no idea who these so-called “celebrities” are) have released special edition backpacks at the cost of $55,000. The bags are decorated with … colorful prescription pills that celebrate and glorify the Hollywood way. Note that Mary-Kate Olsen’s boyfriend, [...]

Why Do Mass Killings Occur?

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 19:25 5 Comments

A reader writes me this today: Karen: As an owner of several guns I still believe that the threat of mass killings could be reduced if we outlawed assault weapons of any kind as well as clips over 5. Just maybe this might reduce the next mass shooting to something less than 26. The only [...]

One nation under drugs, with slavery and sickness for all

Monday, December 24, 2012 15:08 1 Comment

Toxic “legal” drugs are being consumed daily, as if they are candy. Women, adorned in pink ribbons, are asking for tamoxifen by name thanks to cancer “awareness campaigns” founded by the drug’s maker. Women are told that this potent drug can “reduce the risk of breast cancer” while increasing the risk of uterine cancer, stroke, [...]

Psychotropic Nation

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 21:44 No Comments

Yep, Mr. Moore refers to the psychotropic establishment as a bunch of criminals. Even Michael Moore can be right on occasion. Let us not forget Eli Lilly and its cover-up of its Prozac and that drug’s very strong link to violent and suicidal behaviour. From an old Forbes article: Lilly was strong at the time [...]
