Meet Dr. John Virapen – The Man Who BOUGHT Prozac’s Approval

“I indirectly contributed to the death of . . . people, whose shadows now haunt me.”

Yes, I did say “BOUGHT” the approval for Prozac! Once the managing director for Eli Lilly in Sweden he now wants “to see chemical medicine taken out of the equation. John and I did our first show together in 2010 in Provo, UT. I believe it was his first in America discussing how he, under direct orders from his superiors at Eli Lilly, bribed the approval for Prozac (You will not believe how little he paid to get that approval!!) in Sweden thereby paving the way for the approval of all the Prozac clones that followed it – Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Sarafem, Stratera,  Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Remeron, Pristiq, Cymbalta, Brisdelle, etc.

Why Sweden? That was because Sweden was known for their strict approval guidelines for medications so that other countries would rush the drug through the approval process in their countries with little scrutiny. This is how the SSRI antidepressants were born as the designer drugs in our world which now bring in $11 Billion annually.

If anyone really thought Prozac’s approval had anything to do with any benefit the drug might have or that the benefits were backed by scientific research then here is their wake up call! The next time anyone attempts to defend an antidepressant and states that any of these antidepressants are helping patients please share this post with them so that they learn the truth about these drugs and their birth!!! In doing that PLEASE share with them the WITHDRAWAL WARNING posted below! If you do not know what you are doing in withdrawal it can be the most dangerous period of taking an antidepressant and tragically MOST doctors remain unaware of that fact!

He has just learned that his first book, Side Effects: Death. Confessions of a Pharma-Insider, will be turned into a full-length feature film.

The carrot he dangled to catch his attention and sweeten the deal….How medical research is really done….Questions about vaccine safety….How common bribery is in the prescription drug world we all consider so “safe” but may never again after listening to his confessions:

And in the following recent article “Former Top Industry Insider Reveals Big Pharma Secrets” John  ….

  1. • Reveals how bribery is common practice in drug approvals.
  2. • Admits he pushed drugs worldwide which he knew were not safe

John began to realize that the drugs he was pitching were not drugs, but death. He was well aware early on that thousands had died or committed suicide by taking the drugs. In his book he confesses, “I indirectly contributed to the death of . . . people, whose shadows now haunt me.”

“Spending nearly 30 years pushing Big Pharma’s wares onto doctors, who would then push them onto an unsuspecting, trusting public, Virapen made millions dealing drugs, crisscrossing the globe in the hopes of convincing healthcare professionals to use his company’s products, even when he knew they were unsafe.

“Seeing his latest son born in 2004 was an epiphany for him, and he decided to come out of the shadows to make sure no one else died at the hands of pharmaceuticals. Virapen is now 71 years old.”

AMERICAN FREE PRESS asked Virapen to explain how he helped get Prozac into the hands of tens of millions worldwide.

“My boss told me, ‘Do what you have to do’ to get the drug approved,” he said.

Finding the man responsible for the approval, and researching his background for clues on how to best approach him, they met at an Indian restaurant to discuss Virapen’s proposal.

“He was laughing,” Virapen told this reporter, “and I asked him, ‘What are you laughing at?’”

“He told me, ‘This product is no good, it’s a load of rubbish,’ ” said Virapen.

Around a month later, Virapen’s target received a $25,000 check from Lilly, a bribe, plus a promise to do a 10-year study on the drug, “which meant millions for him,” Virapen explained.

“I had performed a criminal act,” he wrote in his book. “I was forced to use bribery to influence drug approval, even though I knew the drug would harm people.”

“All the companies were the same,” said Virapen. “I did a lot of bribery. I’m an expert.”
