1 in 3 FDA-approved Drugs May Lead to Death | AMA Journal

From myeclinik.com

A scathing post-market study on FDA-approved drugs conducted by some members of the American Medical Association has made it to the headlines. It concludes that almost “one-third of new drugs approved by U.S. regulators over a decade ended up years later with warnings about unexpected — sometimes life-threatening — side effects or complications.”

LATimes reports,

Researchers looked at potential problems that cropped up during the routine monitoring that’s done once a medicine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is on the market. The results, published Tuesday, covered all 222 prescription drugs approved by the FDA from 2001 through 2010.

The 71 drugs that were flagged included top sellers for treating depression, arthritis, infections and blood clots. Safety issues included risks for serious skin reactions, liver damage, cancer and even death.

“The large percentage of problems was a surprise,” and they included side effects not seen during the review process, said senior author Dr. Joseph Ross, an associate professor of medicine and public health at Yale University.

While most safety concerns were not serious enough to prompt recalls, the findings raise questions about how thoroughly drugs are tested before approval, said drug safety expert Thomas Moore.

But Ross said the results suggest that the FDA “is kind of doing a great job” at scrutinizing drugs after approval.

New drugs are generally tested first in hundreds or even thousands of people for safety and effectiveness.

Surely, not one of those guinea pigs are their close relatives.

Among the drugs that were found to be life-threatening are Bextra, Raptiva, Zelnorm, and others:

… The study counted black-box warnings for dozens of drugs. These warnings involved serious problems including risk of death or life-threatening conditions linked with the drugs.

There were also alerts for less serious potential harms related to dozens of drugs. Among them: Humira, used for arthritis and some other illnesses; Abilify, used for depression and other mental illness; and Pradaxa, a blood thinner.

Three drugs were withdrawn because of the potential for death or other serious harm. They were Bextra, an anti-inflammatory medicine, because of incidence of heart problems; Raptiva, a psoriasis drug, which is linked to a rare nervous system illness; and Zelnorm, a bowel illness drug, which has been connected to heart problems.

New Law Means You Could Be Used As Subject Of Vaccine Experiment Without Your Knowledge!

Disturbing information here to say the very least. For those who are well awake you’d be aware of un consented  and unknown experimenting on populations that has been going on for decades. If you doubt me google Porton Down (it’s in the UK). Then there are all the indigenous people who have been sterilized or vaccinated with vaccines that sterilize without their consent or permission. The list is damning and unforgivable. And it is still going on! This latest news will spell open slather. If all of the above has happened for so long, without knowledge or consent, here we have the waiver of the need for consent.

Educate yourself on the independent research on vaccines (and our histories) … mainstream knowledge is all there & you’ve ascribed to it likely all of your life. Check out the other stories now and see what you think. (Check categories and our Vaccine pages for more articles).

Last December, then President Barack Obama, passed a law that favored pharmaceutical company agendas. The law gives way to pharmaceutical companies who want to use a vaccine or any medication as an experimental endeavor. And they don’t have to tell the patient.

The law is here: Section 3024, “Informed Consent Waiver for Clinical Investigations” of H.R. 32, the “21st Century Cures Act.

Clinical testing of investigational medical devices and drugs no longer requires the informed consent of the subjects if the testing poses no more than minimal risk to the subjects and includes safeguards.

The exact details of what is intended by “clinical testing” is no clear. Additionally, the “no longer requires the informed consent of the subjects” portion is incredibly, and terrifyingly, clear. This seems to give pharmaceutical companies the ability to perform any testing they want to on anyone who is already receiving one of their medications.

How Money From Pharmaceutical Companies Sways Doctors’ Prescriptions

RANGITIKEI ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH WATCH
We recently featured a video with an ex Pharmaceutical executive blowing the whistle on the corruption within the ranks of the pharmaceutical industry. Told never to discuss side effects, he said the industry was now turning their attention to children. They literally create a market because sold out medical professionals will write reports suggesting what is the current problem and then come up with the drug to fix it. Stay informed and definitely check the side effects by requesting the info or by checking online. Better still, find an holistic medical practitioner who will focus on your health and well being rather than treat symptoms. Here is more confirmation from Dr Mercola about the corruption that exists within the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

If your doctor receives money or gifts from a drug company, be it payment for a lecture or a free meal, does it influence the medications he or she in turn prescribes? This represents the burning question in an industry saturated with pharmaceutical company involvement.

A ProPublica analysis revealed nearly nine in 10 cardiologists, and seven in 10 internists and family practitioners, included in their study received payments from drug or device companies in 2014.[1] But the analysis didn’t stop there.

It also looked into whether or not such payments were associated with prescribing practices, and here’s where things got interesting.

 

Doctors Who Received Drug-Company Money Prescribed More Brand-Name Drugs

ProPublica analyzed the prescribing habits of doctors who wrote at least 1,000 prescriptions in the Medicare Part D drug program. The doctors belonged to five common specialties: psychiatry, cardiovascular disease, family medicine, internal medicine and ophthalmology.

Court upholds $50 million award for girl whose life was destroyed by Johnson & Johnson’s Children’s Motrin

This case is shocking. As I recall, Johnson & Johnson was always a trusted brand. I spoke recently with some women in their senior years who all nodded at that name as being trusted. Trust unfortunately is a word that doesn’t feature so prominently nowadays. Corporations regularly fail in their promises it seems … and if you doubt this please watch the doco entitled ‘The Corporation’. You will find it here on the Corporations page. It will explain to you how this all happened … how a corporation functions … to whom its first loyalties are. Be aware, it is not you, the customer by any stretch of the imagination. And so here, we have a big corporation being ordered to pay $50 million to an injured child, when in the bigger picture, in light of the profits made, that sum of money is not all that large. And not compared to the suffering this child and her family have endured. As always with these sad and unfortunate stories, we need to be aware to read the very fine print and do our own private research on medications. The information is there but is seldom given to us unless requested.

“(NaturalNews) The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court upheld a lower court’s judgment that pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson should be required to pay $50 million to a girl who suffered a rare but devastating side effect from Children’s Motrin when she was seven years old. The judgment took more than a decade to be reached.

Samantha Reckis experienced toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which burned off 90 percent of her skin, destroyed 80 percent of her lung capacity and left her blind. Only luck and the efforts of her doctors prevented her from dying or suffering permanent brain damage…”

Processed Foods Similarly Addictive as Illicit Drugs, Another Study Shows

From Natural Society, an expose on how processed foods operate in our bodies. A good reminder to grow or buy organic and preferably prepare our own meals from fresh. Increasingly our foods from supermarkets are empty of nutrition. Like an automobile, our bodies need fuel to operate … nutritious fuel.

“A new study has found what many studies have already concluded – that the junk food plaguing grocery store shelves alters certain parts of your brain responsible for levels of hunger, thirst, and the body’s natural rhythms and cycles. In other words, processed foods and junk foods are addictive…”
