Pfizer paid 2.3 billion dollars

Johnson & Johnson slapped with $1.2 billion penalty in Arkansas for using fraudulent tactics to sell Risperdal.

Reuters reports that a jury at Pulaski County Circuit Court in Little Rock, Ark., recently found J & J guilty of
illegally marketing Risperdal for unapproved uses, bilking the Arkansas state Medicaid insurance program for millions of dollars, and withholding the truth about the drug’s deadly side effects.

Arkansas judge fines J & J $1.1 B in Resperdal case

– alleging they misled doctors throughout the state in a letter that downplayed Risperdal’s side effects

– State attorney General Dustin McDaniel said in an emailed statement that the ruling “sends a clear signal that
big drug companies like Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals cannot lie to the (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), patients and doctors in order to defraud Arkansas taxpayers of our Medicaid dollars.”

And I am sure we have forgotten the deaths from cyanide-laced Extra-strength Tylenol?

Johnson & Johnson

1982 Chicago Tylenol murders

– September 29, 1982, a “Tylenol scare” began when the first of seven individiuals died in metropolitan Chicago after ingesting Extra Strength Tylenol tha thad been deliberately laced with cyanide

– within a week, the company pulled 31 million bottles of capsules back from retailers, making it one of the first major recalls in American history

– the incident led to reforms in the packaging of the over-the-counter substances and to federal anti-tampering laws

– the case remains unsolved and no suspects have been charged

2010 children’s product recall

– April 30, 2010, McNeil Consumers Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson an dhohnson, voluntarily recalled 43 over-the-counter children’s medicines, including Tylenal, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl

– the recall was conducted after a routine inspection at a manufacturing facililty in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania and United States

– affeted products may contain a “higher concentration of active ingredients” or exhibit other manufacturing defects

– products shipped to Canada, Dominican Republic, Guam, Guateala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinadad and Tobago, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Fiji were included in the recall

2010 Hip replacement recall

– August 29, 2010, DePuy, a subsidiary of American
giant Johnson & Johnson, recalled its ASR (articular surface replacement) hip
prostheses from the market

– DePuy said the recall was due to unpublished National Joint Registry data showing a 12% revision rate for resurfacing at five years and an ASR XL revision rate of 13%

– all hip prostheses fail in some patients, but it is
expected that the rate will be about 1% a year

– pathologically, the failing prosthesis had several effects

– metal debris from wear of the implant led to a reaction that destroyed the soft tissues surrounding the joint, leaving some patients with long term disability

– ions of cobalt and chromium –the metals from which the implants was made– were also released into the blood and cerebral spinal fluid in some patients

GlaxoSmithKline to appeal Argentine vaccine fines

The world’s second-largest drug maker was fined $93,000 for protocol problems involving the company’s
recruitment of children under  for clinical trials in several Argentine provinces.

The investigative judge also fined two investigators nearly $70,000 each because consent forms were signed by
illiterate parents or people who didn’t have custody, according to a source in Aguinsky’s office, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the ruling is being challenged.

GlaxoSmithKline. Where Billions in Fines Don’t Dent the Bottom Line

After our Kleptocracy-controlled Supreme Court made it easy for corporations to shield themselves from class action lawsuits with their April 2011 “AT&T Mobility v Concepcion” decision, those settlements are likely to be much smaller.

So for any companies that might be ethically challenged, the pervasive profit motive may often have them asking this:

“Which is better for our bottom line? To do the right thing, or just pay the fine?”

For the multinational Big Pharma conglomerate GlaxoSmithKline, it would be reasonable to assume that the asking of this question is not an occasional moral crisis but a standard operating procedure. In support of this contention,
consider that only yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported the following:

“In one of the largest settlements of it’s kind, GlaxoSmithKline PLC said it will pay the US government $3 billion to settle several long-running criminal and civil investigations into the company, including allegations that Glaxo
marketed some drugs illegally and defraided the medicaid program.”

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

I just read a great article about drug induced Fibromyalgia from anti-depressants and psychotropic drugs. Here I quote from Beyond Meds Alternatives to Psychiatry.

This is the kind of information I am trying to recover is the after affects of prescription drugs from the guinea pigs, er, sorry, I meant from the people.

Do we know the long term effects of these toxic drugs? What are they doing to the rest of your body, mind, organs and soul? Who are they really helping beside making big pharma rich? When I hear FDA approved, I cringe. The toxic police approve! Yay, for their bank account, nay for the people. Their drugs sure did a number on me.

Please report your side effects!


“The drugs used to treat bipolar and depression often CAUSE PAIN. Many people never realize it’s iatrogenesis, drug induced-illness, and they call it fibromyalgia instead. If a large number never figure out the meds are causing it
they simply think they have another disease and rather than coming off the offending meds, end up adding even more meds to fight the pain.”

Ontario researchers have found a simple cure for cancer, yet major pharmaceutical companies are not interested because they cannot patent and make profit from it.

Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human’s cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It is currently used to treat metabolic disorders, so, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.

So why is it we are allowing people to die from cancer when we could be saving them? Today is my Mother’s birthday, she died of breast cancer  June 2nd, 2004. She was only 67 years young! What a waste of talent and to think, it is because a pharmaceutical company couldn’t make profit from all that chemo drugs, pain killers, morphine, pills, pills, and more pills she was on. She was drugged up beyond reality, she lost her hair, she lost her well being, her lust for life, she lost all functioning, ability to walk and at the end even to eat or talk, then she lost her life. Tell me, all that so someone can drive a Mercedes or two? If we could only value human life the way we did money, possessions and power!

Albert Einstein

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Here are the websites, read all the details here:

The University of Alberta Discovery
March 15, 2007

Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, a professor at the U of A Department of Medicine, has shown that dichloroacetate (DCA) causes regression in several cancers, including lung, breast, and brain tumors.

Until recently, researchers believed that cancer-affected mitochondria are permanently damaged and that this damage is the result, not the cause, of the cancer. But Michelakis, a cardiologist, questioned this belief and began testing DCA, which activates a critical mitochondrial enzyme, as a way to “revive” cancer-affected mitochondria.

The results astounded him.

Michelakis and his colleagues found that:

DCA normalized the mitochondrial function in many cancers, showing that their function was actively suppressed by the cancer but was not permanently damaged by it.

the normalization of mitochondrial function resulted in a significant decrease in tumor growth both in test tubes and in animal models.

DCA, unlike most currently used chemo therapies, did not have any effects on normal, non-cancerous tissues.

“I think DCA can be selective for cancer because it attacks a fundamental process in cancer development that is unique to cancer cells,” Michelakis said. “One of the really exciting things about this compound is that it might be able to treat many different forms of cancer”.

Another encouraging thing about DCA is that, being so small, it is easily absorbed in the body, and, after oral intake, it can reach areas in the body that other drugs cannot, making it possible to treat brain cancers, for example.

Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.

This drug doesn’t require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.
