Brintellix is being marketed with implications that it's the best antidepressent yet and that it's exceptionally safe. What is this based on? Close examination shows the usual smoke and mirrors, and an even closer look points out disturbing indications of potentially devastating and deadly effects—with no indication that it's better..
A new study clarifies that statins are the greatest medical fraud of all time. The claims made for them are false. The amount of harm they do is staggering, resulting in millions of lives devastated and ended. The worst part of all, though, is that it was entirely predictable—but studies were designed to hide the truth. The media, the..
When a study showed that antibiotics are associated with breast cancer, the authors did another study that appears to be an attempt to disprove their earlier results. Other studies that claim to find no association are deeply flawed. Clearly, the goals are not to find the truth or improve health. Evidence based medicine is based on..
What risks are worth taking for the benefits of a drug? If you think doctors ask that question before prescribing, take a look at drug metoclopramide, prescribed to increase nursing mothers' milk supply, even though it's deadly and causes birth defects & permanent neurological damage.
The behemoths called corporations are cancers with no interest in anything but profits. They will do, use and destroy anything as long as it brings profits. Merck may have killed half a million people with one drug alone and was fully aware of its adverse effects. Though caught, they still profited from it. That's just one incident among..
Human emotions are now targets for drug research. A new study, bought and paid for by Big Pharma, claims to have found the single molecule responsible for sadness. And you thought sadness had something to do with sad events? Apparently not. It's just a sequence of chemical changes. Stop that, and you'll never be sad again.
A new study, financed by Eli Lilly & Forest Labs, claims to have found the cause of fibromyalgia, along with proposing a treatment. The claim falls flat on examination, but Eli Lilly & Forest Labs now have a pathway to reinvent old drugs for a new disease—so they can repatent the drugs!
Trying to make newborns healthy by drugging them before they're born is pure insanity—but that's exactly what's happening in a string of studies. The diabetes drug, metformin, is being trialed on overweight pregnant women. Concerns of birth defects are ignored in this insane rush to profit off existing drugs.
When is it okay to knock a blockbuster drug and say that the basis for it was a lie? As demonstrated by Dr. Oz's pandering, it's when the drug goes off patent, causing profit depression. The fact is that SSRI antidepressants have always been based on a lie, but saying it is verboten until the profits dry up. Then, and only then, is it..
The misuse of antibiotics is not only causing new, never-before known diseases like E. coli and MRSA, the flesh-eating bacteria, it's also destroying the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.
Big Pharma's corruption goes back decades. Wyeth's attempt in 1979 to find a way to make it difficult or impossible to track batches of vaccine when something goes wrong—like when children die—clarifies that there's nothing new about their willingness to cover up the massive harms done by their products, even when children die from..
One of the most frequent epithets tossed at people who make claims of alternative medicine is that it's just the placebo effect. But that is based on the myth that placebos can cure. The reality, as clearly documented by science, is that they don't. So the skeptics base their favorite claim on a myth, not reality, and most assuredly not..
Doctors routinely prescribe antidepressants after cardiac bypass surgeries. There's no consideration for their adverse effects, nor do they consider that depression after such surgery is a reasonable emotion, nor do they bother to consider whether a patient actually is depressed. Larry, a happy-go-lucky man, died of the practice.
It's past time for conventional medicine to step down from its hubristic stance to realize that they don't know better than nature, that they cannot beat nature, and that they must work with nature, not against her. Until they do, they'll be no different than any of the other soul-sucking industries that exist by raping the earth of her..
'The use of antipsychotic, antiepileptic, and mood stabilizing medication may cause one or more side effects that will most likely require additional care management.' So said the document Alex's parents were told to sign—and it wasn't on the hospital's letterhead! They've strapped him down naked for 19 days & want to coerce his..
