Big Pharma and The Big Deception

"And they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts." Rev. 19:21

I am going to deviate from my normal topic line somewhat and talk about a topic we can all relate to, but many are blind to what goes on behind the scenes. I still am committed to being environmentally conscious and do what is right to preserve our planet. I also wish we had more alternatives as far as alternate energy and renewable energy. A lot of issues including environmental and health issues are very complicated and cannot easily be solved overnight. There are powerful corporate forces and even government forces that don’t always have the average citizen’s best interests in mind and in many cases not even the environment’s best interest. They just follow the “money trail.” Going forward I want to write more articles that I am passionate about in addition to just “Green” articles. Being green is cool but there is more going on in this world that needs to be mentioned.

Over the past several months, I have been reading some books and watching some other materials discussing big pharmaceutical companies and to some extent big agriculture and some other big corporations. In regards to “Big Pharma”, in many cases they are not interested in curing diseases, as disease means profit for these companies. In fact some pharmaceutical companies along with some of their big corporate friends and to some extent governments, even invent diseases and conditions to increase their profits. One of the books I read and highly recommend is “Medisin” by Dr. Scott Whitaker. I also have listed to some individuals such as Alex Jones and Gerald Celente, who are not afraid to speak out against corruption and I commend them for it.

The interests of groups such as big Pharma have taken hostage of our western civilization. Our modern diets which consist of Genetically Modified foods with hundreds of toxic additives such as aspartame and MSG are causing numerous diseases in people including cancer, diabetes, crohns and colitis and many others, are a big cash cow for the pharmaceutical companies who profit in the billions of dollars from the often preventive illnesses of the population. They have even discovered new diseases to increase their profit. They even hype up other ailments and advertise on corporate controlled mainstream media to peddle their drugs. Children for example are being told that they have Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, and other conditions, which I think, are partly caused by vaccines and the toxic diets and environment that children are exposed to. Then we poison them with numerous drugs such as Ritalin, which of course helps big Pharma. I don’t mean to undermine diseases in children which are a great deal of stress to parents who are often told that medications are their only choice and as a parent they do what they think is right to help their children. Cases of debilitating illnesses and other side effects as a result of vaccinations across the world are on the increase. I wonder if the swine flu last year was even hyped up to make some people very rich. Just follow the money trail and it leads to Tamiflu, Roche and Donald Rumsfeld.

I believe that in many cases that most of the Multi National Pharmaceutical companies do NOT want a cure for most diseases. Disease is profit. The more diseases and the more people with them, the more money they make. Even those who wish to provide natural treatments or offer a reliable cure for a certain disease are kept quiet and even ridiculed. Yes, they can manufacture drugs to control and eradicate some symptoms but they do not want to cure them. They want to keep people sick and in fact some of the side effects from some of these drugs make people even sicker. Most of the doctors get paid for treating disease, not curing them. See the vicious cycle here? How many people are familiar with Codex Alimentarius? Codex Alimentarius is a threat to the freedom of people to choose natural healing and alternative medicine and nutrition. Ratified by the World Health Organization, it is being implemented in many parts of the world including North America. Codex Alimentarius is about the economic wishes of multi-national corporations, in particular, the pharmaceutical industry. If Codex Alimentarius is fully implemented in North America, therapeutic dosages of vitamins, and minerals, and all other nutrients will become unavailable because they will literally become illegal. Therapeutic grade vitamins, minerals, and amino acids would be eliminated from the marketplace. Our water is full of toxins. Our food is full of toxins. Why not fix those issues instead of attacking vitamins and people that wish to take a holistic approach to health? Of course, the big corporations, especially Big Pharma has no interest in a healthy population, and will do what ever is in their power to make the population sick so they are dependant on their drugs.

A few examples of how doctors and society in much of the western world are influenced by big Pharma have personally touched me. About fifteen years ago I was diagnosed with Crohns disease. I gradually got pretty sick and had a specialist that wanted to try different drugs on me. I had taken steroids and other drugs to control my gradually worsening condition. I remember asking my specialist if diet and exercise could make a difference. His reply was that there was not a proven diet or exercise program that he could recommend but advised me I should try another drug. I eventually had to get surgery, which saved my life. I will admit that when I was younger I had a poor diet and was not fully educated in a healthy lifestyle, so I do take some responsibility in the onset of my disease. Years after my surgery, I still have a mild case of manageable Crohn’s, but I know without any doubt that proper diet and exercise along with stress management is the way to go and to only take medication when absolutely needed. We need to get at the root cause of disease and not put bandages on them.

CCSVI the Liberation of multiple sclerosis is another hot issue. I am touched by Multiple Sclerosis indirectly as I have some close friends with the disease. It is another example of how doctors and health officials are bullied by big Pharmaceutical companies. The so-called “liberation treatment” for multiple sclerosis was just declined as a treatment by the Canadian federal government. They decided recently not to fund further research into the treatment the so-called “liberation treatment” for multiple sclerosis. They state there is not enough positive data to confirm that is helps. Just from reading articles and listening to people with MS that had this procedure done, it is more promising than any drug introduced recently. I wonder who is calling the shots here? Big Pharma does not want a cure for MS in my opinion. They make too much money from MS to have it taken away from them. Big Pharma wants you sick. Disease is their business. The more diseases and more people they can control the more money they make. Big Pharma controls our health authorities, doctors and governments by bribing and bullying who they need to in order to make more money. Big Pharma also has a huge control of the mainstream media who are bribed by millions of advertising dollars.

Now, I am not totally against medicine and I am not blaming researchers and scientists that really want to find cures and ways to alleviate human suffering and to genuinely help people. In certain cases medicines have saved lives and help people manage certain diseases. What I am against is the way that multi national corporations have used deception and greed to harm people and especially in this case pharmaceutical companies where they are blocking and robbing some people from optimum health. When pharmaceutical companies and health care officials put their own profit motives ahead of the best interest of patients and even deceive them in order to keep their corrupt game going, I have a huge problem with that. We all need to play a part primarily in disease prevention and secondly in curing disease. That is being aware of the foods we eat and staying away from corporate and processed food as much as we can and buying local when possible. We need to be taking vitamins and herbs when needed and of course exercising when we can. We need to put more pressure on our health authorities to have a more holistic approach to healthcare and not be dictated by Big Pharma. Together we can make a difference


  1. Here is a good article to read

  2. This is a letter I posted in my local newspaper relating to the fight MS patients are having in Canada with the interests of Big Pharma.

    "I have been following the news recently with interest on the Multiple Sclerosis CCSVI Liberation Treatment. I don’t have MS myself, but I personally know people that do have this disease. The Liberation treatment, while not the cure, is the closest thing to a cure yet for MS. Why do Canadian citizens with MS have to travel outside Canada to get this safe procedure done that only takes a few hours, with funds out of their own pocket? The main reason is that Big Pharma is doing their best to block this therapy from becoming common practice to alleviate many symptoms from MS patients and give them their lives back! Big Pharma does not really want to cure any disease; they just want to contain them! Disease is money and it is Big Money. Big Pharma controls governments and healthcare authorities to a huge extent. Big Pharma also has a huge say on how the MS Society is run. Big pharmaceutical companies are among the largest contributors to the Canadian MS society annually. What really makes me shake my head are the people that want to shut down the merits of the Liberation Treatment by stating that it hasn’t been proven. How are we going to test it if they aren’t willing to give this therapy to people that want and need it? Then they cite the dangers of rushing into procedures that are not proven yet and use the example of Thalidomide, a drug that they released on the market too fast. This drug was banned in the early 1960s after it was found to cause deformed limbs in the children of women who took it early in pregnancy. This is like comparing apples to oranges. Is this all the opponents of this procedure and Big Pharma can come up with to scare people? What does clearing blocked veins have to do with Thalidomide? Nothing! Finally, if you add the cost of drugs per MS patient on the average, this procedure, if done in Canada is much less than the yearly cost of drugs MS patients take. The social cost of keeping MS patients sick and feeding them medication is higher than treating them with the Liberation treatment. A grade 3 math student can figure that out ! The dangers of some of the MS drugs are greater than the Liberation Treatment is. It is time that our government and health authorities take care of their citizens and not the wishes of Big Pharma."

    "Dr. David Healy, author of New York Times bestseller Let Them Eat Prozac, has a new book out, Pharmageddon, in which he describes the role of pharmaceutical companies in the degradation of health care."
