'Modern-day medicine, for the most part, is not really medicine. It’s not about people’s health; if anything, it’s about money. Arnold Seymour Relman was a professor of medicine at Harvard and former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal and was also one of many prominent figures within the medical field who emphasized it best by stating, “The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not 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.” (source)
There are so many statements similar to Relman’s and even more examples to hammer home the point of pharmaceutical fraud like not disclosing certain information from clinical trials or research that exposes a number of different kinds of prescription medications. The latest example comes from a study conducted by researchers at the Washington University School of Medici where they discovered a link to drugs that are known as proton pump inhibitors, used to combat heartburn, to fatal cases of cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and upper gastrointestinal cancer. The results were shocking to say the least, as researchers found that such risks increases the duration of their use (PPIs), even when they are taken at low doses (see study).
In North America, especially within the United States, the number of people taking prescription medication is staggering. When it comes to PPIs in particular, more than 15 million Americans have prescriptions and many millions more purchase the drugs on their own and take them without even consulting with a doctor. But how much do doctors really know?
Although doctors have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to human physiology and psychology and a fair amount when it comes to diseases, the truth is that they know very little about the drugs they prescribe that have been marketed and promoted by the industry they work in. How come it’s never mentioned that prescription medication is one of the leading causes of death? We are talking about a lethal epidemic that’s promoted and marketed as medicine, how insane is that? Doctors put their trust in pharmaceutical companies, and patients put their trust in the doctor, and as a result we have a deadly epidemic on our hands.'
