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

Cholesterol not a cause of cardiovascular disease

As covered in the 1st and 2nd classes, mere presence does not prove causation, no more than firemen being at a fire proves they started it.  And it get worse, in ruptured plaque that caused a death, cholesterol content has in autopsy studies was found to be between 7% and 22%  Cholesterol is part of the healing process, used to build new cells.   This creating a condition--in this case hypercholesterolemia--and then through their KOLs convince physicians and the public that it need a drug treatment has been repeated over and over again.  It is why two leading French physician wrote a book on useless drugs, and why one of them said what he did in the quote below.

On point is the statement by Dr. Evens in The Guardian:  “The pharmaceutical industry is the most lucrative, the most cynical and the least ethical of all the industries. 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." He is the author of "The Guide to the 4,000 Useful, Useless or Dangerous Medicines" (Sept 2012), with Dr. Bernard Debre is director of the prestigious Necker Institute, Dr. Philippe Even is a member of the French Parliament. F. Pharma

More from the interview:  "However, Even accused the industry of having a get-rich-quick attitude to making medicines and said it was interested in chasing only easy profits. "They haven't discovered very much new for the last 30 years, but have multiplied production, using tricks and lies."

Industry claims that the reduction in deaths from heart attacks is because of their drugs for cholesterol and hypertension.  The reduction comes not from their drugs --which have been shown not to be worth their side effects--but from the reduction in smokers which has dropped from 46% of adults in 1974 to 16% in 2016.
