BEST CHRISTMAS BLESSING SINCE THE FIRST CHRISTMAS?!! BMJ Declares. Big Pharma “Is Causing Harm & Cannot Be Trusted”…Top Medical Journal Wants Pharma Out of Medical Treatment!

Dr. Marci Angell first came out
almost two decades ago with her resignation from her  17 year long position as the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine. She boldly stated that she could no longer serve as an advertising agency for Pharma by publishing as “medical research” what were basically infomercials written up, minus any real research, & then signed by doctors paid to do so as if it was their own valid research. She then wrote her book, “The Truth About Drug Companies, How They Deceive Us & What To Do About It”

This BMJ article brings the number to about half a dozen editors of major medical journals around the world who have come forward to warn us that Pharma has not merely been stretching the truth about their products, but just plain VERY DECEPTIVELY LYING about them to the point they cannot be trusted. This they say is causing enough harm that one of the most highly esteemed medical journals in the world, the British Medical Journal, has launched a global campaign to actually separate Pharma from medical treatment!!!
All I can say is, “Thank Heavens!! It is way past time for the world to wake up! Far too many have already lost their lives to all this deception from Pharma.”

On our website for some time now has been the Atlantic Monthly interview with Dr. John Ioannidis (Known as the world’s leading expert on medical research), Lies, Damn Lies & Medical Science, all about the serious issue of the

falsification of Medical research. Dr. Ioannidis even expresses his concern about this being such a serious issue that he fears that this may be the end of medical research.

I do want you to note the particular pharmaceutical company mentioned here who has just lost a court battle on the safety of pelvic mesh, Johnson & Johnson because in my next post I intend to feature perhaps their greatest blunder of all that they have just introduced. This is the same company who brought us baby powder that causes cancer and the antipsychotic, Risperdal, which gives your sons such large breasts that they need Massectomies , Johnson & Johnson because in my next post I intend to feature perhaps there greatest medical blunder of all that they have just introduced. this is the same company who brought us opiods that are killing so many, baby powder that causes cancer and Risperdal that gives your son’s, not your daughters, such large breasts that they need massectomies!

“When we want to decide on a medicine or a surgery, a lot of the evidence we used to inform that decision is biased,” he says.

“It cannot be trusted. Because so much of that has been produced and funded by the manufacturers of those healthcare products.”

‘Cannot be trusted … causing harm’: Top medical journal takes on big pharma

By Liam Mannix

December 4, 2019 — 12.01am

A medical journal is launching a global campaign to separate medicine from big pharma, linking industry influence to the pelvic mesh scandal that injured hundreds of women.

The BMJ says doctors are being unduly influenced by industry-sponsored education events and industry-funded trials for major drugs.

Those trials cannot be trusted, the journal’s editor and a team of global healthcare leaders write in a scathing editorial published on Wednesday.

The “endemic financial entanglement with industry is distorting the production and use of healthcare evidence, causing harm to individuals and waste for health systems”, they write.

They are calling for governments to start funding independent trials of new drugs and medical devices, rather than relying on industry-funded studies. Sponsored research is more likely to find a favourable result compared to independent research, studies show.

And they want medical associations to discourage doctors from going to industry-funded education events.

But doctors have hit back, questioning who will pay for education and medical research if the pharmaceutical industry is excluded.

Assistant Professor Ray Moynihan, a Bond University researcher studying the link between money and medicine, and is one of the leaders of The BMJ’s campaign.

Dr Anna Stavdal, president-elect of the World Organisation of Family Doctors, Assistant Professor Ray Moynihan and Dr Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of The BMJ, in Sydney before the campaign launch.

“When we want to decide on a medicine or a surgery, a lot of the evidence we used to inform that decision is biased,” he says.

“It cannot be trusted. Because so much of that has been produced and funded by the manufacturers of those healthcare products.”

Dr Moynihan points to the example of medical giant Johnson & Johnson, which sold pelvic mesh to thousands of Australian women. It knew the mesh could cause serious harm, but never properly warned women of the risks.

In the US, a court found the same company deliberately played down the dangers and oversold the benefits of opioids, stoking the addiction crisis that claims the lives of 130 Americans a day. The company plans to appeal in both cases.

The BMJ  also wants policies in place to stop doctors receiving professional development points for attending industry-sponsored education events.

These events, critics claim, are thinly disguised sales seminars.

Between 2011 and 2015, pharma companies spent more than $286 million on events for Australian doctors, nurses, pharmacists and specialists, according to University of Sydney research.

Many received free food and beverages, and some got free flights and accommodation for an overseas conference.

Studies show doctors who attend industry-sponsored events are more likely to prescribe the company’s drugs.

But the Australian Medical Association questions how medical education and research would be funded without the involvement of the pharmaceutical industry.

“Who is going to fund all this? Is the government going to fund it?” says Dr Chris Moy, chair of the association’s ethics and medico-legal committee.

“Money makes the world go round, in simple terms. Research will not happen unless there is funding.

“Medicine is always going to need pharma companies. We cannot be too brutal on them.”

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons says it requires its members not to accept money or gifts in exchange for using certain devices or surgeries, and they must declare any conflicts of interest – for example if they are on a company’s payroll – to their patients.

Medicines Australia, which represents major pharmaceutical companies, did not return a request for comment by deadline.

The Medical Technology Association of Australia says its members are bound by a “code of practice which aims to ensure that healthcare providers are not influenced in their decision-making through financial or other inducements to choose one device over another”.

Editor of Lancet: Medical Research is Unreliable at Best or Completely Fraudulent

Richard-Horton-Lancet

Richard Horton, Editor of Lancet

A shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, is saying that medical research is UNRELIABLE AT BEST IF NOT COMPLETELY BOGUS! Lancet editor, Richard Horton “… states bluntly that major pharmaceutical companies falsify or manipulate tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of their various drugs by taking samples too small to be statistically meaningful or hiring test labs or scientists where the lab or scientist has blatant conflicts of interest such as pleasing the drug company to get further grants.”

LIES, DAMN LIES, AND MEDICAL SCIENCE

This statement ties in perfectly with the article we have had on our website and been recommending for almost five years now from the World’s Leading Expert on Medical Research, Dr. John Ioanidis from Greece. Dr. Ioannidis told the Atlantic Monthly in an article titled “Lies, Damn Lies, and Medical Science” that 90% of medical research is tainted if not outright bogus due to influence from the industry. https://www.drugawareness.org/…/lies-damned-lies-and…http://nsnbc.me/2015/06/19/shocking-report-from-medical-insiders/

As I have stated since this earlier article this information should be headline news as it affects the lives and health of so many.

NOW A SHOCKING REPORT FROM EDITOR OF LANCET

Health SciencePublic HealthUSA

F. William Engdahl (NEO) : A shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of the Lancet recently published a statement declaring that a shocking amount of published research is unreliable at best, if not completely false, as in, fraudulent.

Richard Horton_The Lancet_USA_NEO_JUn 2015

Horton declared, “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.”

To state the point in other words, Horton states bluntly that major pharmaceutical companies falsify or manipulate tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of their various drugs by taking samples too small to be statistically meaningful or hiring test labs or scientists where the lab or scientist has blatant conflicts of interest such as pleasing the drug company to get further grants. At least half of all such tests are worthless or worse he claims. As the drugs have a major effect on the health of millions of consumers, the manipulation amounts to criminal dereliction and malfeasance.

The drug industry-sponsored studies Horton refers to develop commercial drugs or vaccines to supposedly help people, used to train medical staff, to educate medical students and more.

Horton wrote his shocking comments after attending a symposium on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research at the Wellcome Trust in London. He noted the confidentiality or “Chatham House” rules where attendees are forbidden to name names: “’A lot of what is published is incorrect.’ I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides.”

Other voices

Dr. Marcia Angell is a physician and was longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), considered to be another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. Angell stated,

“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 ofMedicine.”

Harvey Marcovitch, who has studied and written about the corruption of medical tests and publication in medical journals, writes, “studies showing positive outcomes for a drug or device under consideration are more likely to be published than ‘negative’ studies; editors are partly to blame for this but so are commercial sponsors, whose methodologically well-conducted studies with unfavorable results tended not to see the light of day…”

At the University of British Columbia’s Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Dr Lucija Tomljenovic obtained documents that showed that, “vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. This is scientific fraud, and their complicity suggests that this practice continues to this day.”

Lancet’s Dr. Horton concludes, “Those who have the power to act seem to think somebody else should act first. And every positive action (eg, funding well-powered replications) has a counter-argument (science will become less creative). The good news is that science is beginning to take some of its worst failings very seriously. The bad news is that nobody is ready to take the first step to clean up the system.

Corruption of the medical industry worldwide is a huge issue, perhaps more dangerous than the threat of all wars combined. Do we have such hypnosis and blind faith in our doctors simply because of their white coats that we believe they are infallible? And, in turn, do they have such blind faith in the medical journals recommending a given new wonder medicine or vaccine that they rush to give the drugs or vaccines without considering these deeper issues?

F. William Engdahl is strategic risk consultant and lecturer, he holds a degree in politics from Princeton University and is a best-selling author on oil and geopolitics, exclusively for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook”.

Perhaps even more interesting is this comment in the Lancet about this speech:

“A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in “purdah”—a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government’s payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.

Senate Hearing: Medical Errors Are Third Leading Cause of Death???

Third Leading Cause of Death – Medical Errors

and When You Add In Medications How High Is The Toll Really?

July 17, 2014 the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions held a hearing on the number of deaths caused by preventable medical errors.

http://www.sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/medical-mistakes

C-SPAN has a video of those Senate hearings posted here… http://www.help.senate.gov/hearings/hearing/

But before going to those links if you will go to our website to read our mission statement at https://www.drugawareness.org/mission/ you will see how long this situation has been going on and find a link to a study done by pharmacists who were tired of seeing patients die from the drugs they were handing out. They found that the Third Leading Cause of Death in America is “properly prescribed prescription drugs” (prescribed according to what the FDA has judged to be “safe and effective”.) This is a study done in 1995 so you can imagine how much worse it would be by now. If you add that together with these deaths plus add in the medication-induced heart attacks and medication-induced cancer and medication-induced suicides you will find medical treatment to be the leading cause of death in America!

To all that add to it the warning from Dr. John Ioannidis, the world’s leading expert on medical research, who says that 90% of medical research is now tainted or just plain bogus and that he fears that medical science will not be able to survive this. https://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/lies-damned-lies-and-medical-science

From all this information the lesson seems clear…Keep your loved ones away from doctors and nurses and their treatments!!!

9-Year Old Nephew on Prozac

“I was infuriated that a child…could be medically prescribed a drug that causes…violence and turmoil in the world.”

 

I just discovered recently that my nephew, only 9 is on Prozac. I was infuriated that a child, any child whom hasn’t lived in this world long enough could be medically prescribed a drug that causes enough violence and turmoil in the world, when prescribed to adults, let alone children! I am in the process of assisting my sister with this issue, however my nephew is living in a foster home with foster parents and it is my understanding that they (foster parents) and the state of Texas Human Resources are they ones who suggested this “drug” due to the fact that my nephew had currently tried running away. If you have any suggested medical research that could help us, or know people with similar cases, please feel free to give them my e-mail. Thank you very much. My heart goes out to your family. May God watch over you always.
