Researchers Hid, Ignored Bad Results in Massive Drug Trial Corruption

moneyfire 220x137 Researchers Hid, Ignored Bad Results in Massive Drug Trial Corruption Patrick Gallagher
Activist Post

Pharmaceutical medication has always been very highly regarded in society, and its continued use shows that many individuals seem to use it without knowing — or more likely, even thinking — about the content of the drugs that they so hastily consume.

Recently there has been yet another study that shows the Food and Drug Administration, trusted by millions and yet funded with trillions to overlook some of the most detrimental health risks, cares even less about drug trial regulation than previously thought.

The study reveals the varied corruption deeply rooted within the FDA, vying for approval of drugs that serve no medical purpose, sometimes with more harmful effects than good. Specifically, the drug Tamiflu (oseltamivir) — the drug praised as the be all end all cure for the ‘deadly swine flu epidemic‘.

The entire article debunks the use and distribution of the effectively worthless drug, as well as the FDA’s reasons for approval:
If sales can be considered a proxy for utility, the controversies surrounding even the most successful drugs (such as blockbuster drugs) seem all the more paradoxical, and have revealed the extent to which the success of many drugs has been driven by sophisticated marketing rather than verifiable evidence… Prior to the global outbreak of H1N1 influenza in 2009, the United States alone had stockpiled nearly US$1.5 billion dollars worth of the [drug].

The researchers continue:
This analysis, conducted by Kaiser and colleagues, proposed that oseltamivir treatment of influenza reduced both secondary complications and hospital admission. In contrast, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which approved Tamiflu in 1999 and was aware of these same clinical trials, concluded that Tamiflu had not been shown to reduce complications, and required an explicit statement in the drug’s label to that effect.
This study only covers one single drug that has only been approved solely for profiteering; the FDA is known to have approved thousands upon thousands of commercial drugs from the big pharmaceutical corporations over the decades, with many questioning their serious side effects.

Such is the case with highly-popular cancer drugs, which have been shown to make cancer worse and actually kill the patient more quickly.

It has become abundantly clear that citizens cannot and should not place any sort of trust in many of these corporate-pushed these medications and their supposed ‘benefits’.

Those suffering from toxic or chemcial exposures like the 9/11 victims are well aware that there are usually no warning labels on their meds for them. Their are four kinds of asthma and those with the chemically induced asthmas are excludied from clinical trials so no adverse reactions are documented. Then the govt contracted out health programs such as medicare, Federal, Va, etc will think the few meds still left that are being made and not in a generic form can be substituted by cheaper generics and they can't/ How does this occur? I learned first hand when federal workers comp was withholding info from me in the early 90's and I voluntered for a clinical trial and ended up in the hospital with the pharmaceutical company paying the bill. Then got chastised for 'lying' on my forms that I had no heart condition which the doctors wern't being allowed to acknoledge or treat. If you have this kind of repiratory problem, you have heart problems as the lungs are damaged and the heart over works until it suffers damamge. According to doctors; Oxygen was to have been part of the treatemnt from day one and wasn't. The FDA allows these kinds of exclusions, knowing full well that they are discriminating against those with toxic and chemcial injuries. We are what is called chemically sensititve rather than having allergic reactions. There are an estimated 3 million like me in the USA and our doctors and us play ' russian roulette' everytime a new medicine has to be tried. To save the envirnoment many of our inhalers aren't made now with no safe substitutes. My doctor now has me go to a stand alone pharmacy and a glucosteroid tab is put in a saline solution that I put in my humidifier bottle attahed to liquid oxygen tank. ( we can't use those ozone producing concentrators, either.)The local HHS Civil rights office manager will not allow my discrimination complaint to be answered to address this exclusion. The liability ins industry would just as soon we die earlier than medically expected and not have to pay our bills; just give our heirs a little settlement. injuries that used to result in death in 5 years, don't as I'm still alive after 23 1/2 years as progression of the disease can be greatly slowed if our doctors are allowed to treat which is getting greatly reduced due to Congress refusing to address the problem.Linda Joy Adams, not a doctor, just a patinet of many of the leading pulmonolgists and cardiologists in the the USA.

"Create the problem, offer the solution"
- a popular corporate tool!!

EG. - Create actual disease such as cancers, or just the fear of a pandemic, and then OFFER the cure/solution - a drug they make.

Or, keep the body from defending itself against illness. Cholesterol has now been found to keep cancers away. Remember the big cholesterol scare? How many extra cancer drugs, plus the statins, were sold on that lie?

And never forget Scott Reuban!!

Quote:
Dr. Reuben accepted a $75,000 grant from Pfizer to study Celebrex in 2005. His research, which was published in a medical journal, has since been quoted by hundreds of other doctors and researchers as "proof" that Celebrex helped reduce pain during post-surgical recovery. There's only one problem with all this: No patients were ever enrolled in the study!
