The war over homeopathy is getting hotter. In the last 60 days there have been three devastating revelations about toxic pharmaceutical drug scams of megalithic proportions, which in turn have forced the drug cartels, through their shills, to issue warnings against what will overtake them for it by mere default. It’s come to Hahnemann time.
October surprises included another criminal conviction of a pharmaceutical giant hit with another huge fine.
Attorney Mike Ferrara, posting on the Injury Board blog, Network says “Drug giant GlaxoSmithKline is pleading guilty to criminal felony charges in an American investigation into its manufacturing practices at a Puerto Rico plant, and will pay $750 million in fines as a result.”
Dangerous Glaxo toxins labeled as medicine include anti-nausea drug Kytril, anti-bacterial drug Bactroban, and diabetes drug Avandamet.
And on November 3, 2010 24-7 Press Release announced that another whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2005 involving Pfizer has now been joined by the U.S. Justice Department. The suit alleges violations under the False Claims Act and could result in another judgment against Pfizer in the hundreds of millions of dollars due to inappropriate billing of public health programs and other wrongdoing.
24-7 reports that in the New York Times Patrick Burns of Taxpayers Against Fraud says, “The government’s not happy with Pfizer. These are repeat offenders.” The government’s entry into the action, they say, suggests that significantly larger consequences may be at stake for the drug company.
“It’s going to be a big case,” says Burns.
What? A big case? Pfizer already has the largest criminal fine in U.S. history, $1.3 billion, for illegally marketing various painkillers and other medications. That case also involved an additional $1 billion in civil penalties and damages! Isn’t that big enough? . . the emphasis being on enough! When is it going to stop?
PROFESSOR JOHN BEDDINGTON, ROYAL PHARMACEUTICAL SOCIETY SLAM HOMEOPATHY
Okay, so what does this have to do with homeopathy? At the same time GlaxoSmithKline Kline and Pfizer are being taken to the woodshed, the Chief Science Advisor to the government of the United Kingdom, Professor Sir John Beddington of Imperial College, and the country’s pharmacy association, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, are warning people away from homeopathy, issuing edicts against it, saying homeopathics are placebos and insisting that they be labeled as such, with advance warning.
Pardon me for stopping and staring for a moment. Shouldn’t the Prof. Sir and the RPS be warning people about the dangers of these huge corporations . . with their staggering wealth, pumping out their poisonous swill from their jungle island sweat shops? Aboutlawsuits.com says there are now about 13,000 Avandia lawsuits pending in one US district court jurisdiction alone, all involving similar allegations that Glaxo failed to adequately research Avandia and warn users about the risk of serious side effects.
And here is the Prof. Sir and the RPS complaining about homeopathy instead?
Why aren’t the Prof. Sir and the RPS busting their chops and refusing their chips and riding over each other in their haste to warn the public about that, chemically induced diseases of epidemic proportions?
In the UK the government has paid for homeopathic treatment as a part of its National Health Service plan. But after a hatchet job on homeopathy by the Lower House (exposed as a hoax by the Upper House) of Parliament, the issue of whether to continue to fund homeopathy has become at times something of a raging public debate.
Could it be that homeopathy, due to its superiority, is a bigger threat to the vested interests than are their malfeasances? And so they say that homeopathy is ineffective, that it can’t do anything? He’s the Chief Scientist, and they’re the Royal Pharmacists. We have to give them some credit for that, don’t we? And there are plenty of English doctors who will snootily sign petitions denouncing this odd little practice. we can cont on them for that.
But doesn’t it make sense to investigate a little further, just what it is, and why it is that the vested interests appear to be so afraid of it?
According to the World Health Organization, homeopathy has become the second most used medicine in the world today. It has been reportedly successful in treating every manner of disease and problem of the human condition. Its action can be seen on plants and animals, even biochemically. Homeoapthics have unique physical distinctions and electromagnetic indices.That’s a huge threat to Pfizer and Glaxo, now in the assizes.
It’s time to seek a telling answer . . .and take a closer look at the stats.
Just how well do homeopathics perform in epidemics?
