MEDS THAT SUCK

Grant Wood
gw-brueg-farm-field.jpg

A new section has been posted at /rpts which summarizes the major areas that pharma has manipulated the evidence base so as to increase their profits by promoting illness:  in most cases by failing to efficaciously treat the condition and through the development of new medical conditions, often years later.  Pharma because of their corporate fiduciary model also does tobacco science which they use to “educates” doctors, dieticians, and the public that what is health is "harmful”.  Both are covered in /rpts section.  This section has some of the articles supporting this dismal assessment of health care in /rpts.  

It is not the case histories, but the average results for a large cohort (over 100 patients) followed long-term that determines the merits and harms of a treatment.  Surrogate endpoints such as lower blood pressure or lower cholesterol are not be what determines the value of a treatment, but rather the incident of heart attacks, strokes, deaths; and on the negative side, if the medication increases the incidents of other conditions such as mental decline, muscle weakness, dementia, cancer, weight gain, ulcer, general malaise, and so on.

There is grass-root revulsion to the current corporate health industry, with pharma doing the most harm.  The best account of bad pharma is by Danish Prof. Peter Gotzsche in his 2013 book Deadly Medicine and Organised Crime:  How big pharma has corrupted healthcare.  Prof. Gotzsche’s book has won the British Medical Book Award given by the BMA (British Medical Association which is comparable to our AMA).  Further endorsement comes from the Richard Smith former Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and Drummond Rennie, Deputy Editor of JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) which are 2 of the 4 leading English medical journal.   The President’s Lecture on YouTube by Harvard Professor Marcia Angell confirms Prof. Gotzsche’s book. Pharma is worse than you can imagine.       


 


Harvard Prof. Marcia Angell, MD., former Chief Editor of NEJM wrote:  We certainly are in a health care crisis, ... If we had set out to design the worst system that we could imagine, we couldn't have imagined one as bad as we have.”  Author of the Truth About Drug Companies, and former Editor in Chief of NEJM.  Her excellent lecture on YouTube presenting the evidence


Bell Curve
1970--07-sugar-consump-person.jpg

Look back on to the post war era of the 1940s and 50s the major health  issues were caused by tobacco which over 40% of the population took and chronic consumption of ethanol.  Obesity, dementia, type 2 diabetes, cancers not related to tobacco and ethanol, major psychiatric conditions, osteoporosis, non-rhemetuid arthritis, macular degeneration were rare.  Something has gone very wrong.  At /rpts is in summary form with links the evidence what has caused the difference.  It is not the cornucopia of causes that corporate media suggests.  The major causes in order of significance is too much fructose from sugars consumption that has overwhelmed our liver and caused insulin resistance, pharmaceutical drugs, polyunsaturated fats which become oxidized in cell walls, and possible the sex hormone mimics from soya been products and plastics.
