Recommended More Bad Pharma

This site is dedicated to publishing examples of how pharma works.  They work like all corporations.  Corporations are very good at marketing.  What causes corporations to aggressively market ethanol beverages and tobacco products; this too applies to pharma.  I call this “tobacco ethics”.   Books could be filled with examples of corporations vehemently defending harm that kills people for the sake of their profits.  Tobacco companies are one of thousands examples of corporations opposing regulations and much more.  They hide the information concerning the harm they are causing, then use the media to project a false image. They pollute our environment,  create hazardous conditions at work, make unsafe products, all because of profits.  Safer and cheaper alternative drugs are opposed with junk science.  These are the results of tobacco ethics.  A perverse system produces perverse results.  And they have cooped the regulator system.

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.

“The pharmaceutical industry is the most lucrative, the most cynical and the least ethical of all the industries," Dr. Philippe Even tells The Guardian. "It is like an octopus with tentacles that has infiltrated all the decision-making bodies:  world health organizations, government agencies, parliaments, high administrations in health and hospitals and the medical profession." Author of "The Guide to the 4,000 Useful, Useless or Dangerous Medicines" 4   Guide des 4000 Médicaments Utiles Inutiles ou Dangereux au Service des Malades et de Praticiens (Sept 2012). Dr. Bernard Debre IS director of the prestigious Necker Institute & Dr. Philippe Even, a member of the French Parliament.
