Big Pharma – the cult of disease, death & destruction

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell, physician and editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ)

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the Lancet

Dr. Peter Rost is a former vice president of Pfizer and the author of The Whistleblower, Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman…

First Digital Pill – Biomedical ‘Big Brother’

This is just one more attempt to control the great masses of humankind. And fact is, the need to control is itself a sickness, an admission of fear, a form of psychopathy.

The true nature of a human is love – just look in the eyes of a healthy, well-protected newborn baby – an infant born gently, not in the harsh hospital-industrial complex, one who is being breast-fed by a healthy mother and who was never separated from its mother, one who has been spared the intrusive sexual torture of circumcision and one who has not had massive doses of toxins shot into its tiny body – and you will see an example of what a human truly is, at its core. In this child, you will see a deep of unconditional love, acceptance and joy. This child has great potential for blessing the world.

However, the further into the matrix the child goes, the less the love and joy will shine through. A child who is born into a family of unhealed abusers will learn to fear at an early age. Tortured from birth in various and sundry ways, he learns that it is his right – his duty, even – to torment, hurt and control others. He is taught that passing cruelty along is how he survives and proves his worth. The only remedy he can see to being abused, is to rigidly control his own reactions and to control everything and everyone in his environment, for what he sees around about him has – in his mind – the potential to inflict pain upon him. He is desperate to control, for to him, safety lies in the ability to control. His every waking hour is spent devising ways to control his tiny world… and eventually (he hopes) the wide, wide world.

And this, dear people, is what we see manifesting in the world today – two cultural concentric circles. In the vast mass culture, you have the circle of innocents who trust and therefore obey because they were taught to love, to think well of others, to not judge others, and to endlessly forgive. They believe that love rules the universe, that love is all that truly exists and fuels all of life. They cannot conceive of treating children, animals, women and other cultures with anything but love and respect.

However, in the tiny inner circle you find the children of abuse. These are the warmongers, who wage wars against countries, against nature, against other humans and even human nature itself. They fight because they are frightened. This minuscule circle of abusers consists of the “aggressive (fearful) movers and shakers”, “ruthless climbers to the top of all systems.” Their rigid ideology and antisocial behaviors are inevitable because they are fueled by fear instilled by years of familial and social abuse.

This is why we at ThoughtCrimeRadio address the birthing process and circumcision, for that is where the twig is bent and determines the direction the tree will grow. Love allows a child to breathe easy and to let the love flow through. Fear blocks the breath and splits the personality into tiny little shards of hatred and harm.

This article is an admission of the fearful inner workings of the minds of those who self- identify as aristocrats, born into “bloodline families” who truly believe they have a need and right to rule and ruin the world – and you! Of course this product is framed as “good for you” – as all their tools for control are – for if they honestly announced, “We who have been trained to fear, feel a need to do what we can to control you, for we are few and you are many,” then you would understand their motives and refuse to comply with their means and ways and advertising campaigns. You would “Just say NO.”

So read this article from that perspective. Here is another attempt to control you, your family and your world. “Better living through chemicals.” “Big Brother is your friend.” It’s from the New York Times… so it must be right and good and true, hmm?

For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration has approved a digital pill — a medication embedded with a sensor that can tell doctors whether, and when, patients take their medicine.

The approval, announced late on Monday, marks a significant advance in the growing field of digital devices designed to monitor medicine-taking and to address the expensive, longstanding problem that millions of patients do not take drugs as prescribed.

Experts estimate that so-called nonadherence or noncompliance to medication costs about $100 billion a year, much of it because patients get sicker and need additional treatment or hospitalization.

“When patients don’t adhere to lifestyle or medications that are prescribed for them, there are really substantive consequences that are bad for the patient and very costly,” said Dr. William Shrank, chief medical officer of the health plan division at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Ameet Sarpatwari, an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School, said the digital pill “has the potential to improve public health,” especially for patients who want to take their medication but forget.

But, he added, “if used improperly, it could foster more mistrust instead of trust…”

 

Dr. Peter Kramer, a psychiatrist and the author of “Listening to Prozac,” raised concerns about “packaging a medication with a tattletale.”

While ethical for “a fully competent patient who wants to lash him or herself to the mast,” he said, “‘digital drug’ sounds like a potentially coercive tool…”

How would you feel if your doctor were bribed to give you a drug?

Hello, Novartis. The pharmaceutical giant has just been fined $50 million by the government of South Korea for bribing doctors to prescribe the company’s drugs.

FiercePharma reports: “Last year, prosecutors in the country [Korea] raided Novartis offices to gather documents and account books. South Korean officials later indicted a half-dozen Novartis execs, as well as more than a dozen doctors and five medical journal heads…The Korea Times says the criminal trial is now underway.”

A Novartis spokesperson called the crime “in violation of our policies and inconsistent with our culture…”

Really? There’s more.

FiercePharma continues: “Outside of Korea, Novartis faces separate bribery claims in Greece, where an official earlier this month said ‘thousands’ of people could be implicated.”

“The company faced other allegations in Turkey, which it now considers ‘unsubstantiated,’ and paid $25 million to U.S. authorities last year to settle a bribery investigation in China.”

Sounds like bribery might be central to the culture of Novartis.

You walk into a doctor’s office. He makes a diagnosis and writes out a prescription for a drug. Unknown to you, he’s been paid off to tell you to take the drug…

Renowned Harvard Psychologist Says ADHD is Largely a Fraud

Worried about your child’s “hyperactivity”? What if it was normal for children to be energetic and curious about everything? What if it is unnatural to restrict young children to chairs and desks and rooms for hours every day? But then again… sitting still like that is good preparation for routine jobs… and prison.

Viewed by academics as one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, Jerome Kagan ranked above Carl Jung (the founder of analytical psychology) and Ivan Pavlov (who discovered the Pavlovian reflex) in a 2002 American Psychological Association ranking of the eminent psychologists. He is well-known for his pioneering work in developmental psychology at Harvard University, where he has spent decades documenting how babies and small children grow, and is an exceptional and highly-regarded researcher.

So it may be surprising to learn that he believes the diagnosis of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is an invention — and only benefits the pharmaceutical industry and psychiatrists.

Mislabeling Mental Illness

“That is the history of humanity: Those in authority believe they’re doing the right thing, and they harm those who have no power”, says Jerome Kagan.

In an interview with Spiegel, Kagan addressed the skyrocketing rates of ADHD in America, which he attributes to “fuzzy diagnostic practices.” He illustrated his point with the following example:

Say fifty years ago you have a 7-year-old who is bored in school and exhibits disruptive behavior. Back then, he would be labeled as lazy. But today, that same child is said to suffer from ADHD. That’s why we’ve seen such a dramatic increase in the disorder.

Every child who is having problems in school is sent to see a pediatrician, who then claims it’s ADHD and prescribes Ritalin. “In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don’t have an abnormal dopamine metabolism. The problem is, if a drug is available to doctors, they’ll make the corresponding diagnosis,” he said…

Homicide and the SSRI Alibi

One 2011 study by Lucire and Crotty examined 10 patients with variants in a drug metabolizing liver enzymes who committed homicide (primarily of children and family members) after being started on psychiatric medications. They returned to their baseline personalities after medication discontinuation highlighting the intoxication effects of these chemicals. One of these cases should have led to the ban of the entire class of medications. Unfortunately, not much has been done with this information and you probably haven’t heard a whisper about this particular paper.

You may not know that there is also a database called SSRIstories.org where these media-making cases of SSRI-induced violence and impulsivity are documented including school shootings, kamikaze plane crashes, and infanticide. You might think this is rare. You might think that these people are “mentally ill” so obviously they are on medication. The truth is that pharmaceutical companies have been working overtime to suppress a signal of harm around suicidality and violence with these psychiatric medications – coding negative outcomes in short-term trials as “emotional lability”, punting those cases to the placebo group, and otherwise discounting impulsive violence that populates the treatment arms of drug trials….

The truth is that what we are calling mental illness – from panic attacks to depression to psychosis – are symptoms of mismatch with lifestyle. These symptoms can result from physiologic imbalances (think thyroid or food intolerances), psychospiritual imbalances (think overwhelming job or abusive marriage) and are modern day syndromes that essentially invite us to revisit our day-to-day lives.
