Mike Adams – On the same day that 17 students and staff were killed in a Florida high school shooting, nearly 300 Americans were killed by FDA-approved prescription medications. Yet no one cried a single tear, and the (pharma-funded) news didn’t even mention the tragedy.
When children are killed by guns, the news is emotionally multiplied with pseudojournalism “theatrics” to push for gun control while ignoring the far more devastating causes of preventable death in America. You see, while the Florida school shooting happened just once, the deaths of hundreds of Americans from FDA-approved prescription medications goes on every single day, without pause.
That’s why, according to scientific research, at least 106,000 Americans are killed each year by legal medications which are prescribed by licensed doctors. (Source: “Death By Medicine” analysis.)
Chemotherapy kills an estimated 2,700 people every day across the globe
The website PharmaDeathClock.com counts the number of people killed by toxic medicine every day, both in America and around the world. According to the site, chemotherapy alone kills an estimated 2.700 people every day around the world. (See the Chemo Kills website for more details.)

-7 out of 10 Americans take at least one prescription medication.
-20%, or $3.5 trillion, of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) goes towards health care costs.
-In a single year, one drug company spent over $460 million in advertising for its blood thinner Pradaxa.
Morgan Statt – These statistics, laid out by the American Intelligence Media in an article entitled Pharmageddon, highlight one undeniable fact. Big Pharma is Big Business. Patients’ health and safety is often cast aside to make room for manufacturers to focus on one thing: profits.
Suffice to say that money is blinding. Flashing dollar signs can distract even the most ethical of individuals and sway them to cross the line between right and wrong. In the case of Big Pharma, these distractions and abandonment of ethics don’t just impact a manufacturer’s bottom line.
When a pharmaceutical manufacturer places profit at the forefront of its priorities, the very patients boosting the company’s profit margin may suffer severe injuries and in some cases death that is caused by a drug’s side effects.

Jennifer Giustra-Kozek, LPC, NBCC – By practice, I’m a psychotherapist who has been working for over a decade in the world of mainstream medicine, a body of experience that has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of both its strengths and weaknesses.
But beyond my work, I’m also a mom who fiercely loves her children, and for their sake, when it comes to their health I’ve always explored all available options — an approach that I’m proud to say has led me to find better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered.
My work has allowed me to cross paths with a seemingly endless number of psychiatrists and general practitioners, who for the most part have one thing in common: They all see medication as the optimal form of treatment for the vast majority of what they diagnose. This includes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, sleep issues, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Tracey Watson – Is it possible that mainstream journalists have rediscovered their integrity and desire to tell the truth? Have the increasingly urgent cries of “fake news!” caused some to find and dust off their consciences? It certainly seems that at least some have been less reluctant to do their jobs recently. The New York Times’willingness to finally reveal the predatory control Harvey Weinstein maintained over young Hollywood actresses for decades, despite the mainstream media’s stubborn insistence on shielding celebrities in recent years, is one example of how the tide seems to be turning.
And now both The Washington Post and The Guardian – those very middle of the river mainstream news outlets – have written scathing exposes of Big Pharma, specifically related to its shameless feeding of the U.S. opioid epidemic.

Vicki Batts – It often seems like the corruption of Big Pharma knows no bounds — and just when you think they can’t get any worse, they go and prove you wrong. It recently came to light that in addition to bribing doctors and misleading insurance companies, a pharmaceutical company even went so far as to create a network of phony cancer patients for their drugs. It’s almost like a trifecta of corruption, isn’t it?
The company in question, Insys Therapeutics, is reportedly being sued for their wide-ranging misconduct. A federal indictment was presented by Senator Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, and a congressional investigation is still on-going. A new report made available by McCaskill’s office details just how far Insys went to push their sublingual, sprayable form of fentanyl, a drug called Subsys. As you may have heard, fentanyl is one of strongest and most deadly opioid drugs on the market. As Waking Times explains, Subsys has only been approved for patients suffering with what the FDA calls “breakthrough cancer pain.” To put it simply, Subsys is only approved for cancer patients. (Conventional cancer treatment is a whole other story, of course.) Continue reading “Drug company created massive network of fake cancer patients to sell lucrative prescriptions”
