Yet this spring, the U.S. agreed to import cooked chickens from China. Why? Because China agreed to… → Read More

Why Should Taxpayers Pay for the Opioid Crisis When Pharma Caused It?

Trump has announced a national public health emergency over opioids for a scourge created by Pharma.

No, You Probably Don't Have Adult ADHD (Sorry Pharma)

Adult ADHD is likely another marginal "disease" trumped up by Pharma.

Why Isn’t Big Pharma Paying for the Harm It Caused Like Big Tobacco?

Has Western Medicine Completely Botched Painkillers?

Doctors don't always know best, and you could pay the ultimate price. No one living today would want to live in the days before antibiotics, anesthesia and antisepsis were discovered.

Some attribute the death of the first president of the United States, George… → Read More

Pharma-funded "patient" groups keep drug prices astronomical. It happens with regularity during citizen open-mike sessions at FDA drug advisory committee hearings. A queue of “patients” materializes out of nowhere to testify, often in tears, about the crucial need for a new drug or new use approval. Some are flown in by Pharma. It can’t be a generic drug, the “patients” cry, because… → Read More
