Medical Fraud; How Big Is It?

“A recent episode of 60 Minutes revealed how Dr. Anil Potti, a cancer researcher at Duke University, was found to have manipulated research data to support his hypothesis, which led to over 100 terminally ill cancer patients participating in a fraudulent cancer trial. 

The real fraud, however, is revealed in Duke University’s statement that none of the trial participants were harmed—even though they died—because all of them still received “the standard of care” in chemotherapy.

The cancer paradigm is based on an archaic cut, poison, and burn approach. This is a cash cow for the drug companies, and they are working hard to protect this paradigm at all cost—even when it means sacrificing millions of lives to prevent non-patentable or otherwise inexpensive treatments from reaching the market. 

In the last few years, we’ve seen several cases of shocking medical science fraud.”

According to  Deadly Medicine, published in Vanity Fair at;
“Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and “mistakes” can end up in pauper’s graves? The authors investigate the globalization of the pharmaceutical industry, and the U.S. Government’s failure to rein in a lethal profit machine.”

“A 1994 a study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that modern medicine causes 180,000 deaths each year in the USA. (1) Most of these are caused by prescribed pharmaceutical drugs. For example, a 1998 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that in 1994 in the USA, “2,216,000 hospitalized patients had serious Adverse Drug Reactions and 106,000 had fatal Adverse Drug Reactions, making these reactions between the fourth and sixth leading cause of death.” (2) In other words, modern medicine is officially considered to be a leading cause of death.

These astronomical figures, printed in a conservative medical journal, are in spite of the fact that a large number of pharmaceutical drug damages are never reported or registered.”

Now we know the problem. What is the answer? Shift the paradigm to cover herbs, vitamins, lifestyle modification and alternative medicine practicioners. The risks are much less and the results are much more permanent. We have to get away from the quick fix mentality. Taking a pill is not the answer. 

How long would the airline industry stay in business if a jumbo jet crashed EVERY DAY, KILLING EVERYONE ABOARD? Not long.. So why is the Big Pharma industry protected much more than the Mafia is from the consequences of harm caused by their products? 

In a free market, this racket would have been stopped or sued out of existence LONG AGO. It is only because this whole industry is a monopoly and hard or impossible to sue, that they continue on, while a jumbo jet a day crashes and kills everyone on board.
