The last few weeks haven’t been good for Big Pharma after three major studies have shown that some of its most profitable drugs don’t work at all.
One study was published by the Lancet where it was confirmed that antidepressants that are given to children and teens cause way more damage than good, as they routinely raise suicidal behavior. Only one out of 14 antidepressants showed to improve depression better than the placebo.
As for the cholesterol drugs that are used by more than 15 million Americans, experts claim that they are completely ineffective.
According to a study published by international researchers in the BMJ Open journal, there is no link between “bad” cholesterol and death due to a heart disease in people older than 60. What’s even more interesting, 92 percent of people with high cholesterol levels live longer.
The only way to maintain the health of your heart is by choosing healthy lifestyle habits and avoid medications as much as possible.
“Lowering cholesterol with medications for primary cardiovascular prevention in those aged over 60 is a total waste of time and resources, whereas altering your lifestyle is the single most important way to achieve a good quality of life,” says the vascular and endovascular surgery expert, Professor Sherif Sultan from the University of Ireland.
The study co-author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick claimed “that older people with high LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, the so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol, lived longer and had less heart disease.”
These findings could greatly benefit and revolutionize the medicine, but will cost the pharmaceutical industry big money. The Health Impact News reported that cholesterol drug Lipitor is the most profitable meditation ever, with over $140 billion in sales.
It was also suggested by the study authors a re-evaluation of the guidelines for preventing heart disease and the buildup of plaque in the arteries, commenting that “the benefits from statin treatment have been exaggerated.”
Apparently the pharmaceutical industry completely fabricated their researches that their cholesterol drugs are effective and safe, just like the research which has supported other drugs like vaccines and antidepressants.
In 2013, a report of Natural News stated that doctors tied to the industry additionally forced adults to use statins.
The new guidelines that were issued three years ago by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology persuaded one-third of all adults to consider taking statins. This step was highly profitable for the Big Pharma.
When they were asked about their the conflict of interest, they stated that “Ties between heart doctors and Big Pharma are so extensive that it is almost impossible to find a large group of doctors who have no industry ties.”
According to the third major study published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, giving children multiple vaccines at once is unsafe.
“Although CDC recommends polio, hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and pneumococcal vaccines for two-, four-, and six-month-old infants, this combination of eight vaccines administered during a single physician visit was never tested for safety in clinical trials,” said the medical researcher Neil Z. Miller.
“This is at odds with a CDC report which found that mixed exposures to chemical substances and other stress factors, including prescribed pharmaceuticals, may produce ‘increased or unexpected deleterious health effects,” he adds.
This makes the government and the pharmaceutical industry unreliable as their policies have no credibility.
