Corruption in Global Health Care May Exceed $1 Trillion

Story at-a-glance

  • Dishonesty and fraud in the health care system, including its academic and research communities, are significant barriers to the implementation of universal health coverage, yet this corruption is rarely if ever discussed, let alone addressed in any meaningful way
  • The less transparent a health system is, the more corrupt it becomes. Weak adherence to the rule of law and few accountability mechanisms further invite corruption and, with it, health system performance, quality and efficiency plummet
  • The amount of corruption found in any given system is dependent on three variables: Monopoly on the supply of a product or service, the level of discretion enjoyed by suppliers, and the supplier’s accountability to others
  • Three factors governing the engagement in corrupt practices in the health care system are: being in a position of power; financial, peer and/or personal pressures; and cultural acceptance of corruption. In order for anticorruption measures to succeed, these three factors all need to be addressed
  • Drug research is beset by an astoundingly high incidence rate of scientific misconduct, with 72% of retracted drug studies being retracted due to things like data falsification, fabrication, unethical conduct and plagiarism

Dr. Ralph Moss on “The Cancer Industry” – The Business of Blood Money

Cancer is big business and knowledge claims on any treatments that earn money and, conversely, on any treatments that do not earn money for the drug companies, are never neutral. Dr Ralph Moss served as the Assistant Director of Public Affairs at America’s most famous cancer research institution, Memorial Sloan Kettering, in Manhattan. He knows the cancer industry inside out. Hear what he has to say and judge for yourself the quality of the evidence against the effectiveness of Vitamin B17: Moss: Short

Pro-GMO Spin Masquerading as Science Courtesy of “Shameful White Men of Privilege”

Devon G. Peña, PhD, an anthropologist at the University of Washington Seattle and an expert in indigenous agriculture, posted a comment to the new campaign’s website in which he called the laureates’ letter “shameful”. He noted that the signatories were:

“…mostly white men of privilege with little background in risk science, few with a background in toxicology studies, and certainly none with knowledge of the indigenous agroecological alternatives. All of you should be stripped of your Nobels.”

American Medical Association Complicity with Big Tobacco

Mainstream medicine’s permissive attitude towards smoking in the face of overwhelming evidence can be an object lesson for contemporary medical collusion with the food industry.

Doctor’s Note

If the balance of scientific evidence favors plant-based eating, why isn’t the medical profession at the forefront of encouraging people to eat healthier? That’s the question this video tries to answer. Looking back to smoking in the 1950s, you can see how all of society, the government, and the medical profession itself could be in favor of habits that decades of science had already overwhelmingly condemned as harmful.

Use of term “FDA” should always trigger a warning

Monsanto tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety of their products; it is the job of the FDA. The FDA tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety; it is the job of the food producer. Patricia says it’s your job to ensure the care and feeding of your body… and mind.

If you put low-lead gas into a car that requires diesel fuel, it will not run well – and if you put diesel fuel into a car that requires low-lead gas, it will not run well. If you put sugar in your tank, it will destroy your engine. Try running it on grains and other plants sprayed with glyphosate, the deadly ingredient in Roundup.

Please watch what you put into your mouth very carefully, because if you put commercially (as opposed to organically) grown foods into your mouth, you might just be taking your life into your own hands. If your body is less than radiantly healthy, you might want to check what is going into it. And what is the rational response when one discovers s/he is being poisoned by industrial foods?… to stop patronizing the criminal organizations that are poisoning the world’s farms. Don’t buy it; don’t eat it. You owe it to yourself… and you’ll save when you don’t have to buy pharmaceutical drugs to “cure” whatever it is that ails you, which was caused by .

Grow a garden… without chemicals. Just soak the soil, put a seed down, cover it with a little soil, keep watered until it sprouts and then water gently after that. Things grow! Nature is not stupid. It’s been doing quite well for thousands of years without chemicals that require hazmat suits. The yield on organic farms is no less than that on farms sprayed with chemicals. We’ve been had, folks. Let’s turn it around. In WWII, everyone had a “Victory Garden”. Let us now declare our victory over a food system that has made us sick. And now to Jon Rappoport’s article on “our friend”, the Food and Drug Administration.

The use of the term “FDA” should be the trigger for immediate investigation, whenever it appears. For example, “The FDA has ruled (name of drug) is safe and effective.”…

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “Is US health really the best in the world?”: Medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans per year. That’s a million killings per decade.

Every one of the killer drugs is certified as safe and effective by the FDA, the Agency tasked with protecting the health of the American people.

Example: Vioxx was approved for use by the FDA on May 20, 1999. Eventually, it caused 88,000-140,000 cases of heart disease. Conservative death-toll number? 60,000. (An estimated 58,000 American troops died during the Vietnam War.)…

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Kavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies (“Former FDA Reviewer Speaks Out About Intimidation, Retaliation and Marginalizing of Safety,” 7/29/2012).

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare book by Peter Gøtzsche

deadly medicine book

“It is scary how many similarities there are between this [pharmaceutical] industry and the mob. The mob makes obscene amounts of money, as does this industry. The side effects of organized crime are killings and deaths, and the side effects are the same in this industry. The mob bribes politicians and others, and so does the drug industry …” ~ former Vice-President of Pfizer pharmaceuticals

If you believe pharmaceutical corporations hold the health of the general public in high regard, it’s time to reconsider. The industry is filled with examples of wrongful death, extortion, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, embezzlement, fake journals, harassment and hit lists that would make even the most hardened Mafia godfather blush. Big Pharma has been fined billions by the U.S. Department of Justice, but these enormous fines don’t curb the corruption, it’s just looked upon as “the cost of doing business,” similar to paying the utilities.

As a physician and researcher, Peter C Gøtzsche has firsthand experience with the criminality behind the pharmaceutical industry — and subsequently exposed the massive fraud in “Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.”

Dangerous Science

Dr. Gøtzsche has an impressive clinical background, as noted by The Nordic Cochrane Center — a not-for-profit organization that produces credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest…

Robert F. Kennedy Jr on why vaccine mandates must stop

On April 8, 2015, Robert Kennedy Jr. stood on the State Capitol steps and delivered this address in support of the SB277 rally. He explained how the powerful pharmaceutical cartel has captured the U.S. scientific, regulatory, and legislature processes, as well as the corporate news media, which relies heavily on drug advertising. Big pharma dictates vaccine talking points that contradict scientific fact.

He concluded his remarks by emphasizing that legislation such as California’s SB277 takes away the last barrier between the pharmaceutical companies’ monetary mentality and innocent children.

FDA is hiding 22 fraudulent studies

Professor Charles Seife of the Arthur L. Carter Institute of Journalism at New York University recently uncovered some disturbing evidence about the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This information came to light when he made a Freedom of Information request earlier this year. When Seife received his information, he learned that 22 clinical trials submitted to the FDA were falsified, and the results of these falsified trials were not revealed to the public.

With his students assisting him, Professor Seife compared the FDA’s actions regarding these trials against information on them in peer-reviewed studies. The results of Seife’s investigation were recently published in the online journal, JAMA Internal Medicine. In short…

  • The FDA is keeping the public in the dark about scientific fraud
  • How could the FDA allow falsified studies to be published?
  • The evidence is clear: The FDA does not care about public safety
