In 2009, the largest health care fraud settlement in Department of Justice history was settled. This was the largest criminal fine of any kind imposed in the U.S and the largest ever civil fraud settlement against a pharmaceutical company. At the time. Who is this pharmaceutical company that so egregiously disregarded the laws of this country, regarding bribery and fraud? This campaign endangered patients. They advertised dosages of a drug that the FDA considered dangerous.
Trusting big pharma is like trusting Google to not read through your Gmail account
I have gotten to the point where I just assume Big Pharma is trying to either kill me or make me a sickly, life-time buyer. MANY things can be cured or dramatically reduced by serious dietary changes, sleep and exercise.

Manipulated medical research for profit and not good health outcomes is rampant in the United States!
It’s time for congress to vote for criminal prosecution of chief executives of pharmaceutical companies that cook the books for profit and kill patients! Pfizer’s manipulated MRNA faulty research is a good place to start ! There are over 500 prescription drugs still on the market with a Black Box Warning which is a red flag that the drug can cause death. Vioxx is too potent and has too large of a side effect profile to ever be considered returning to the marketplace! Death by Medicine is a reality!
I know that Dr. Malone has said something to this effect before, but it's worth repeating. The damage to the trust in pharmaceuticals is incalculable.
John Ioannidis is awesome. I haven't heard much from him lately...
Another great piece by Dr. Malone (no surprise there.)
In addition to pointing out Pfizer's criminal nature, I would like to add that Jimmy Dore did an excellent piece on the Pfizer's ceo's lack of confidence in his own comapny's product.
Jimmy did miss one portion of the Pfizer's ceo's interview that caught my attention, which is the portion wherein he said something along the lines of (paraphrasing) "we presenting out data that shows how effective a 4th shot will be to the FDA, and we'll have to wait and see what outside experts say about it." Since when does Pfizer give a crap about objective reviews of their products? He's basically admitting that the data they are submitting to the FDA is crap and no one seems to care. Its maddening!
Pharmaceutical advertising should be banned. That revenue loss may have additional benefits in news programming.
Malone is a medical hero
Keep sounding the alarm good Doctor!
The CDC is back to statistical chicanery in their efforts to get those jabs into 5+ year olds. The authors of Bad cattitude Substack wrote an excellent piece explaining what the CDC is doing. I will link it:https://boriquagato.substack.com/p/the-cdc-analysis-on-pediatric-vaccines?s=r
Since 95% of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) are now manufactured in China and the FDA is prevented from inspecting those Chinese factories , our situation regarding pharmaceuticals is frightening. All to save a few dollars.
My question: Why does anyone in their right mind take ANYTHING prescribed by pharma?
Believe it or not, Goodman & Gilman's "Pharmacologic basis of Therapeutics" was my favorite text in school. Nevertheless it has been obvious to me that the most necrotic change in my profession during a 40 year career has been the swallowing of medical practice and medical education by the Pharm industry. Who is most to blame? The gullible public? Or my cowardly colleagues? Or the connivers engineering the scheme? Hard to make up my mind.
Wow. Thank you for the history lesson. I like being informed.
I'm guessing it was another ignored "tell" that Professor Ioannidis wasn't given more credence. I also think the cancer immunotherapy drugs have also been rushed, it feels like we're part of an ongoing research trial in which they bill us 45k per infusion. I think I read somewhere (probably from you Dr. Malone) that the FDA laws changed for drugs to hit the market faster. You also showed us how peer reviewed studies are often just fishing into the data sets to arrive at your desired conclusion. Depressing but at least forewarned is forearmed.
