explained by Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime
Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), one of
the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world
alongside The Lancet, is that,
"it is simply
no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that
is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians
or authoritative medical guidelines.
I take no
pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and
reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England
Journal of Medicine."
Relman, a Harvard professor of medicine and also a former
Editor-in-Chief of The New England Journal of Medicine also made it
quite clear that,

only in terms of the 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."

day, when it comes to medicine, it's not really about 'healthcare,'
it's more so about making money...

reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't sell
drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so
different from anything else in life…
everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen
to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their
medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their
doctors into the medicines they prescribe."
"The patients don't realize that, although their doctors may
know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology,
they know very, very little about drugs that've been carefully
concocted and dressed up by the drug industry…

industry has been completely compromised by big corporations. There
are several great examples that illustrate this point, in fact there
are decades worth of examples.
One of the best would be the SPIDER
A group called the CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence
and Ethics in Research, or
CDC SPIDER, put a list of complaints
in a letter to the CDC Chief of Staff and provided
a copy of the letter to the public
watchdog organization U.S. Right to Know (USRTK).
"We are a group
of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current
state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is
being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue

know by now that pharmaceutical companies are extremely unethical,
and that they have a very tight stranglehold over government health
regulatory agencies like the Centers For Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) and the Food & Drug Administration
According to Robert F. Kennedy
pharmaceutical companies have more lobbyists in Washington

They are even more
powerful than big oil and gas, so you can just imagine
the power they exercise over
politicians and our federal health regulatory agencies.
It's also important to point out the revolving door that exists
between Big Pharma and federal health regulatory agencies.
Julie Gerberding, the
Healthcare Businesswomen's Association 'Woman of the Year,' is a
prime example of someone who has gone through the revolving door
between government regulatory agencies and the corporations they are
supposed to be regulating.

When it's clear
that the medical industry is not concerned about our health like it
should be, it's understandable why more people are choosing to take
their health into their own hands.

that the medical industry does not have it's positives, but when it
comes to drugs and treatment specifically, a big
