Drug Lobbyists Go After the Brains of Children

Big Pharma´s drug lobby machine (the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America) increased its financial arm-twisting of Congress by 25% in 2007 – in an effort to ward off competition and lock in bogus psychiatric medication sales to children. 

 

Drug companies are struggling because their products don´t work for preventive health and they can´t make money just using them for appropriate uses. Their main trade group [PhRMA] spent $22 million in 2007 to buy favors from Congress. 

 

Partly this money was spent trying to maintain a legal monopoly – such as blocking less expensive drug re-importation, preventing fair-price drug negotiations for Medicare, manipulating patent laws to extend drug profits, and ensuring direct to consumer ads continue. 

 

However, most of the increase in spending was to get Congress to reauthorize the State Children´s Health Insurance Program, a program to get and keep low-income kids on mind altering drugs – a cash cow worth billions for Big Pharma. These drugs cause permanent adverse alterations in the developing nervous system of children. There is a reason every school-related mass murder involves shooters that have been on psych drugs. 

 

I´m all in favor of needed health care for any child. However, psych drugs do not replace the responsibility of parents to provide a home and family, the quality of food fed to children, and learning skills about how to live. Solving this problem is easy – provide health care for children but don´t cover the sale of any psych medication. Immediately you would find that Big Pharma no longer cares about children´s health.

Conflict With Drug Makers Exposed by Senator Grassley

Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) just keeps uncovering all kinds of skeletons in the closets of influential people. 

This time he has found that a popular National Public Radio (NPR) host of the health and science show, “The Infinite Mind,” has a conflict-of-interest with the very drug companies he talks about. 

Psychiatrist, Dr. Frederick K. Goodwin, earned at least $1.3 million over the last five years, lecturing for drug makers and keeping that relationship secret.   Read the rest of this entry »

FDA and Big Pharma (PhRMA) in Bed Together!

Many of you are very familiar with Big Pharma.  Others are not.  So excue the definition if you already know this. 

Big Pharma is really the drug industry.  But there is actually a trade assocation, if you wish, entitled, “PhRMA” (The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America).  They will tell you that their members invested over $44.5 billion in 2007 in discovering and developing new medicines.  What they won’t tell you is that they are really a lobbying firm pushing made up diagnosis and their drugs as a cure.  They cure nothing.  They invest billions to sell trillions and then line their pockets individually with millions.  These drugs come with a host of side effects that put individuals in such a drugged state that half the time they don’t even notice all the side effects.  I am talking about thei psychotropic drugs; their antiepressants, antipsychotics, their stimulants (psychostimulants), their hypnotics, their tranquilizers and sleeping pills.

A Documentary – Making A Killing – The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging

Making a Killing DVD

“Psychotropic drugs. It’s the story of big money–drugs that fuel a $330
billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure.  The cost in human
terms is even greater–these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people
every year.  And the death count keeps rising.  Containing more than
175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims
and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask
off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched
money-making machine.”

The facts are hard to believe, but fatal to ignore.

Big Pharma is making a killing by pushing their psychotropic drugs down millions of individual’s throats from antidepressants to antipsychotics to psychostimulants for ADHD.   Let’s not forget those hypnotic sleeping pills, too.

What mental illness do you have this week?  Not doing your homework?  Agitated because you quit smoking?  Or perhaps you just are a teenager and you feel that everyone else is better looking than you.  You name it they have a diagnosis waiting for you and a matching pill in just the right color.

Spread this article to everyone you know so that everyone gets the raw truth in the DVD, “A Documentary – Making A Killing – The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging” which is presented by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights.

Big Pharma (PhRMA) Hammered on Boston Legal

Did you see the Boston Legal episode aired on September 29, 2008?  It was Season 5, Episode 2 entitled ” Guardians and Gatekeepers”.  Simply spot on! You might be wondering how this fits into Side Effects of Antidepressants, Antipsychotics, Psychostimulants, Hypnotics and More.  Read on…

Denny, a senior citizen and partner of the firm, had been taking 42 prescription drugs, purchased on the internet and nearly died of Toxic Shock.  When questioned by a physician on why he was taking them he replied, “I don’t know.  You name it: Acid Reflux, Weak Stream, Restless Leg, Hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel, Memory, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure…”  The doctor warned him,  “These drugs can interact.”  He said, “I keep them in separate bottles.”

All joking aside, television is where Denny and millions of people are being educated about drugs.  Just like Denny, most people believe these drugs would not be advertised if they were not safe.  The transcripts of this show tell it all! Read the rest of this entry »

Corrupt Psychiatric Drug Research – Psychiatrist Revealed

Pharma Funding Controversy Hones In on Psychiatry


Vermont AG Calls Heavy Weight of Drug Money Towards Psychiatrists “Troubling”


Thursday, September 11, 2008

The psychiatric watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), says the July 2008 Vermont Attorney General report revealing psychiatrists again top the list of doctors receiving Pharma payments, coupled with recent investigations into Pharma funds influencing psychiatric drug studies, prescribing patterns and the creation of new mental “disorders,” merits a federal investigation for conflicts of interest that is long overdue. The organization created a new website containing recent reports, disclosures, documents and videos exposing the major conflicts of interest between psychiatry and the Pharmaceutical industry called PsychConflicts.org, The Unholy Alliance.
