Pertinent Quotes from Marcia Angell, MD and Author, Helen Epstein

Note: Dr Marcia Angell was fired from her long-held job as executive editor of the once prestigious New England Journal of Medicine because of an editorial that she wrote criticizing the pharmaceutical industry, criticisms that she elaborated on in her book, “The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It”.

Here are some quotes from Dr Angell’s writings and/or interviews. Some of them were published at Jon Rappoport’s website:

_______________________________________________________________________

“…Similar conflicts of interest and biases exist in virtually every field of medicine, particularly those that rely heavily on drugs or devices. It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” — Marcia Angell, M, author of “The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It” More

War On Health

We have long maintained that the FDA is a threat to public health.  Routinely approving drugs for use on the public that they have neither tested nor questioned, tens of thousands of people die each year as a result.  No one is prosecuted.  No one is held accountable.  Not one pharmaceutical CEO will be held accountable or liable.

At best, this is racketeering. At worst, it is aiding and abetting in mass murder.

It would appear that money fixes everything.  Vioxx killed an estimated 400,000 people…….before Merck pulled it off the market.  Conservative writer and activist Ron Unz  has concluded that data indicate that the death toll from Vioxx was closer to 500,000 just in 2004.

This agency, which has been responsible for more deaths than many wars, the hyped up gun arguments, and assorted other hot button topics, has never once been smacked down for its collusion with its pharmaceutical corporate partners.  And never once has it been held liable for the massive number of deaths that are a result of its “for profit at the expense of human life” business practices.

About half of the drugs put into the market will be recalled in five years because they cause death, heart attacks and numerous other adverse effects…..and not one FDA “I was just following orders” employee on any level will see one day in jail.

Maybe public hangings should be reconsidered.  How many people are going to be seriously harmed or die before we close this abomination down?
