In recent articles, I’ve revealed a
smoking sizzling gun located on the
FDA’s own web site.
Google “FDA Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions” and
you’ll find the page. The FDA is
completely aware their approved medical drugs are killing 100,000
Americans a year. THAT’S what’s on that page.
How can all those dangerous drugs the FDA certifies as safe move
through the pipeline of approval and get to the public?
Yes, we all know that some doctors who sit on FDA panels have
financial ties to the very companies whose drugs they are okaying.
But the story goes much deeper than that.
Drug companies run clinical trials of new drugs on humans before FDA
approval can occur. And those clinical trials are written up and
published in medical journals.
Now, if 100,000 Americans are dying every year from the effects of
drugs the FDA says are safe, the FDA is looking at published studies
that are…what? The studies claim drug after drug is safe. But the
drugs kill. Paradox. Contradiction.
The published studies are
fraudulent. Not just a few studies. Hundreds and thousands of them.
The drug companies are providing studies that are outright criminal
That’s what we have here. Since
the FDA knows the drugs they approve
as safe are killing 100,000 Americans every year, like clockwork,
the FDA ALSO KNOWS THOUSANDS OF SCIENTIFIC PUBLISHED STUDIES ARE
The FDA knows that huge numbers of
studies on drug safety are faked. Faked studies are a crime. It’s
called fraud. And when the fraud leads to the deaths of people
taking a drug, that’s a lot worse than fraud.
The FDA knows the studies are faked, BUT THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING
ABOUT IT. THEY LET IT RIDE. That makes them an accomplice to the
In a legitimate honest courtroom, if one existed, I would present
that case against the FDA every day of the week and I would win.
Should we tread daintily when we know the federal agency responsible
for drug safety is allowing 100,000 people to die every year? This
is murder. It’s not really negligent homicide, not when it keeps
happening. It’s murder. It’s on the order of a Nazi war crime.
Try this image: you are a gatekeeper. Your job, on the first day of
every year, is to unlock the gate and leave it open, so people can
pass through. But you know that, when you open the gate, 100,000
people who pass through will die in the following year.
Yet, every January 1, you keep opening
the gate. That’s what the FDA is. That particular gatekeeper.
But there is further evidence that huge numbers of published studies
of drugs are fraudulent. We actually have statements from medical
insiders. That’s right.
For example, here is one, and it comes
from a devastating source, a woman who edited the most famous
medical journal in the world:
“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
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.”
Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug
Companies and Doctors: A story of corruption.” NY
Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.
What do doctors rely on? What do medical
schools rely on? What do medical journals and mainstream medical
reporters and drug companies and the FDA rely on?
The sanctity of published clinical trials of drugs. These trials
determine whether the drugs are safe and effective. The drugs are
tested on human volunteers. The results are tabulated. The trials
are described in papers that are printed by medical journals.
This is science. This is rationality. This is the rock. Without
these studies, the whole field of medical research would fall apart
in utter chaos.
Upon this rock, and hence through media, the public becomes aware of
the latest breakthrough, the newest medicine. Through doctors in
their offices, the public finds out what drugs they should take -
and their doctors know because their doctors have read the published
studies in the medical journals, the studies that describe the
clinical drug trials. Or if the doctors haven’t actually read the
reports, they’ve been told about them.
It all goes back to this rock.
And when mainstream medical advocates attack so-called alternative
or natural health, they mention that their own sacred profession is
based on real science, on studies, on clinical trials.
One doctor told me, “The published peer-reviewed studies are what
keep us from going back to the Stone Age.”
He smiled. He was confident. He was sure of himself. He had science
on his side. And he was dead wrong. The science is a sham, it’s in
tatters, it’s broken, crushed, smashed.
Here is more evidence.
I quote an article in the NY Review of
Books (May 12, 2011) by Helen Epstein, “Flu
Warning - Beware the Drug Companies.”
“Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a
professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School
of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published
articles in scientific journals contained findings that were
Here’s another quote from the same
“Last year, GlaxoSmithKline’s
diabetes drug Avandia was linked to thousands of heart attacks,
and earlier in the decade, the company’s antidepressant Paxil
was discovered to exacerbate the risk of suicide in young
people. Merck’s painkiller Vioxx was also linked to thousands of
heart disease deaths. In each case, the scientific literature
gave little hint of these dangers.”
And here is yet
another statement from Marcia
Angell, former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine:
“A review of seventy-four clinical
trials of antidepressants, for example, found that thirty-seven
of thirty-eight positive studies were published. But of the
thirty-six negative studies, thirty-three were either not
published or published in a form that conveyed a positive
It turns out that the source of the
informational pipeline that feeds the entire perception of
pharmaceutical medicine is a rank fraud.
“We have the clinical trials of
studies on drugs and they are published in top-rank journals. We
are the epitome of science.”
Yes, false science. Riddled from top to
bottom with lies.
Perhaps this will help the next time a friend, pretending he
actually knows anything, tells you pharmaceutical medicine is a
If you need more, cite Dr. Barbara Starfield’s famous study,
US health really the best in the world?” Journal of the
American Medical Association, July 26, 2000. Starfield concludes
that 225,000 people are killed by the medical system in the US every
year - 106,000 by FDA-approved medicines.
That latter figure works out to over a
MILLION deaths per decade.
A final note
The august editors of medical journals
have a game they can play.
Suppose a drug company has just finished
writing up the results of a clinical drug trial and has submitted
the piece to a journal for publication.
The editor knows the company carried out
a half-dozen other such trials on the same drug…and they didn’t look
good. The drug caused wild fluctuations in blood pressure and blood
sugar. There were heart attacks. Strokes. But this ONE study, the
one submitted for publication, looks very positive.
The editor knows if he prints it and
forgets about “ethics,” the drug company will order re-prints of the
piece from him and distribute them to doctors all over the world,
and to reporters, professors, government officials.
The drug company
will order and pay for these re-prints; the medical journal can make
$700,000 from publishing THAT ONE STUDY.
In one hand, the editor sees: I won’t
publish it = no money.
In the other hand, he sees: I’ll publish
it = $700,000.
What to do?
As a reporter investigating deep medical fraud and crime for 30
years, I’ve spoken to people throughout the medical system. They all
cling to the idea that published studies are the final and ultimate
rationalization for their professional existence.
Well, the system has crashed. It’s broken up into pieces. And yet
these professionals move on, as if everything is normal. It’s an
illustration that consensus reality about science can be stronger
than legitimate science itself.
The blinders are firmly in place. March
ahead. Pretend the truth is on your side. Salute high ideals.
Fake it all the way. While huge numbers
of people die.
