So Many Children, So Many Pills, So Much Profit

Sunday, January 2, 2011 21:57 3 Comments

This article in the Pharmaceutical Daily (also known as the Wall Street Journal) turned some pill bottles last week: “So Young and So Many Pills: More than 25% of kids and teens in the U.S. take prescriptions on a regular basis.” Frightening and pathetic, but hardly news. I almost never see TV commercials except for [...]

Big Pharma: Keeping You on Dope

Monday, October 18, 2010 19:05 9 Comments

Ya gotta love the title of this piece in the Pharmaceutical Daily Journal (that’s the Wall Street Journal) titled, “Adding Predictability to Benefits.” That’s a real fuzzy way of saying ‘We are going to do our bloody best to make sure you don’t stop consuming our lucrative products.’ The Pharmacy-benefit manager Express Scripts Inc., just one of [...]

“Legal” Drugs Are Not Drugs

Monday, May 24, 2010 7:02 5 Comments

Five months after 32-year-old actress Brittany Murphy was found dead of “natural causes,” her 39-year-old husband was also found dead of, well, natural causes. The pharmaceutical industry is so worshiped and defended, the medical establishment and media refuse to call its drugs “drugs.” Chemical, body-changing pharmaceuticals are a higher form of “medication,” of course, while [...]

Got Fat? Take Drugs.

Sunday, April 18, 2010 7:45 5 Comments

This is a highly disturbing – though predictable – event: the development and acceptance of a new generation of “anti-obesity drugs.” It looks like the FDA will review (and likely approve) several drugs that “suppress the appetite.” As if a lesser appetite is the solution to the problem of people putting toxins in their body. [...]

Too Big to Nail

What an incredible investigative piece on CNN Health, citing Pfizer’s illegal – according to FDA rules – marketing of the painkiller Bextra. Now I don’t support the notion of the FDA as a legitimate authority, however, the law of the land is enforced with a great big jack boot, except in the case of the [...]

Another Blow Against Big Pharma

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 22:33 4 Comments

You know it’s really obvious when the mainstream calls out the dope therapy of Big Pharma as offering “no benefit.” Doctors at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in Atlanta on Sunday got some surprising news on their first day of sessions. Researchers presented three studies revealing that some of the most [...]

Big Pharma’s Target Market: Anything With a Heartbeat

Sunday, February 21, 2010 11:46 3 Comments

On the blog, David Kramer links to a story about Prozac and its use for ….. dogs. The pharmaceutical companies, once upon a time, had a semi-honorable quest to cure diseases and improve the quality of life for the very ill. That all went away with the proliferation of the almighty state and the [...]

You Are Being Big Pharma’d

Friday, December 25, 2009 14:35 2 Comments

More Big Pharma antics over at Pharmaceutical Daily – otherwise called the Wall Street Journal. First, there’s a story about Merck & Co’s cholesterol drugs, Vytorin and Zetia, which are, like all of these potent prescription drugs, making people sicker and/or killing them. The FDA had reviewed clinical trials that showed an increased risk of [...]

Big Pharma Has You By the Balls

Saturday, December 19, 2009 6:25 10 Comments

Despite the maddening nature of this paragraph from an article in the Wall Street Journal Pharmaceutical Daily, hardly no one who reads the story will notice it: A measure to allow the importation of cheaper prescription drugs from Canada and some other countries fell short in the Senate Tuesday night, but lawmakers were working on [...]

Gardasil/Cervarix Sham Revealed

Thursday, October 29, 2009 17:43 2 Comments

Previously, I have blogged about Gardasil and Cervarix, and the evil intentions behind the move to make these ineffective and dangerous vaccines mandatory. I have briefly mentioned Dr. Diane Harper, a researcher who was involved in designing and implementing the studies of both HPV vaccines, Cervarix and Gardasil, on a worldwide scale. After the death of [...]
