Prescription Drugs Are Killing Us – Meet One Of The Doctors Who Just Published A Paper About It


“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of practice of medicine but also in terms of teaching and research.”

Many might say that a doctor saves lives and helps increase the average life span, but this is not true. Sure, they save a life here and there, but do they really relieve suffering? Patients extrapolate what doctors say, but they don’t realize that, while doctors do know about the diseases in depth, they know very little about the drugs they prescribe.

Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal says:

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”

The pharmaceutical industry is the most prevalent medicine industry worldwide, as it is hypothesized that the medicines provided by it quickly gives respite from ailments and treats a person, despite of the fact that thousands of people die every year from prescription drug use.

According to a new study, almost 80 percent of meta–analyses had some sort of industry tie-up, either through sponsorship or speaking fees, research grants and things like that, which again leads to the fact that drugs may help someone by giving some sort of relief or lowering pain, but they can also cause a large amount of harm.

These drugs can instantly relieve acute pain and distress. But the treatment of chronic diseases poses a grave problem. Thus, in relieving a diseased condition, other abnormal physiological and pathological problems may develop. The side effects from these drugs can range from mild side effects like fatigue and constipation, to strong side effects like suicidal thoughts, insomnia, coma, severe infection and so on.

“Any drug causing more side effects than benefits will not be called a medicine. It would rather be called a poison.”

Here, we are talking about antidepressants. Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), is currently working to make the world aware of the fact that the side effects associated with the several pharmaceutical grade drugs are actually killing people all over the world. According to his research, 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side effects of correctly-used prescription drugs. He published many papers reasoning the fact that antidepressants are making people suffer with its harmful effects to a large extent.

In context of antidepressants, recent example is a study published in the British Medical Journal by researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Copenhagen. It states that the pharmaceutical companies are not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials.

Tamang Sharma, a PhD student at Cochrane and lead author of the study, said:

“We found that a lot of appendices were often only available upon request to the authorities, and the authorities had never requested them. I’m actually kind of scared about how bad the actual situation would be if we had the complete data.”

This is not the first time that the pharmaceutical companies are portraying only the half truth of their drug trials to get the antidepressants on to the shelves. There are many other examples where we can see that the drug companies are selling their drugs on the basis of a bunch of lies and half-told truths.

  1. The pharmaceutical companies are also putting much effort into brainwashing doctors against other modalities(such as acupuncture or hypnosis) that can relieve pain without side effects in an effort to continue the peddling of their poisons. They use fear tactics to ensure medical councils pressure lawmakers to exclude these modalities from general use – this is very sad and cynical.

  2. I have taken quite a lot of different medicines and also anti-depressants. I have noticed that all doctors don’t really stand for the right things like that you should take as little medicines as possible. They put me back on anti-depressants one time when I was clearly not depressed and I only said that they helped me focus a little bit just for one example. All my medications are seriously difficult to stop taking and if I would do it all of a sudden there is really personality-changing effects that will go on for weeks. All medications that is neuroleptic is harmful to the liver and many of them just as much as alcohol. One time I had really bad results from testing my liver but at first they let me go on taking it for a couple of months more without telling me. I noticed recently too that my anti-depressant was really bad to mix with opiate based medication and one other of my meds shows a positive result on drug-tests for methadone so I’m starting to wonder if they know what they are doing or if they don’t try that hard (aka don’t really care).

    • Foolish to be a human guinea pig for your Drug Dealer Pedler. I teach folks how to back out of toxic deadly poisons. SIMPLE Dig into Mother Natures FARMACY Find me on Twitter and FB for step by steps. I was on thousands of SSRI’s mixed with you name it as the drug of the day,month,year etc. Self-taught how to STOP every single prescription. SSRI had me flat lined. NOTHING was worth living for….NOTHING!!! Not one bite of solid food for near 8 months. In and out of doctors and Hospitals. Finally said enough and buried a 6 inch boning knife between two ribs over my left lung and heart and Unfortunately, at the time I did not die on the operating table….7 years ago this Christmas. I healed by firing all the doctors and building a raised bed organic garden in from of the VA Clinic that all but killed me. I got HEALTHY FAST and grew and gave organic veggies to all interested Veterans. VA Staff warmed up to me. Doctors would walk out into the garden and spend time talking with me. Head Psychiatrist and I agreed this is the place to get healthy, not inside the VA.

  3. And with this in mind know medications are almost never tested on women, because their hormonal fluctuations make it hard to test on them. As a woman you absolutely have NO idea what medications do to your body. Many women die because of this. We take drugs that are tested on men, while our illnesses are almost never the same. We often only need half a pill – chew half of it I mean, because the pills are aadapted to mens needs and too big for what we need. We need to fight a system that only serves half the population.
