DIABETES DRUG FRAUDS
Do drug makers ever lie to us and the doctors they serve?
Unfortunately they do.
My step-dad had diabetes for nearly 50 years and died blind. This was without anyone telling him, except for me repeatedly, that he was being lied to by the industry. He had seen too many pro-industry TV ads. Who was I to go against this mind-bending cultural avalanche?
Who was I to whisper in my his ears that there are several effective ways to naturally reverse diabetes – and also quickly – and thus never go blind?
Some examples of the heartless deceptions of drug companies are as follows. The first is based on a recently released NY Times article. The article exposed a really criminal diabetes drug fraud:
SMITH KLINE’S AVANDIA DRUG FRAUD
“In the fall of 1999, the drug giant SmithKline Beecham secretly began a study to find out if its diabetes medicine, Avandia was safer for the heart than a competing pill, Actos, made by Takeda.
Avandia’s success was crucial to SmithKline, whose labs were otherwise all but barren of new products. But the study’s results, completed that same year, were disastrous. Not only was Avandia no better than Actos, but the study also provided clear signs that it was riskier to the heart. But instead of publishing the results, the company spent the next 11 years trying to cover them up, according to documents recently obtained by The New York Times. The company did not post the results on its Web site or submit them to federal drug regulators, as is required in most cases by law.”
MORE ON THE DIABETES DRUG SCAM
Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a famous nutritional physician who pioneered work in nutrition density, once help a patient (among many) who was also a school principal and to completely reverse her diabetes. The patient then wrote an article for her school principal trade magazine about Dr. Fuhrman’s approach. This caught the attention of the American Diabetes Association. They thus contacted Dr. Fuhrman and asked him to write an article for their magazine. He agreed and they soon sent him a $750 advance. After he submitted the article, Dr. Fuhrman heard back from the ADA politely thanking him but also asking him to alter (fudge) the article. The problem was that wrote about not cutting back on his patients’ insulin but rather taking patients off insulin entirely. They explained that it was impossible for them to publish that since Ely Lilly, the manufacturer of insulin, was their magazine’s primary funder. Dr. Fuhrman, having considerable integrity, refused to change his article and sent them back their $750.
Do you get the picture?
Favorite phases of the industry are therefore “living with diabetes” or “controlling diabetes,” not curing it.
Since Dr. Gabriel Cousens showcased his hugely successful nutritional approach to reversing/eliminating/curing diabetes, see Simply Raw, Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, the ADA has enforced a systematic industry silence against this economic threat. So did all their friends, other Big-Pharma- financially-controlled and/or monetary-front organizations. This includes the International Diabetes Federation (the “proud” sponsors of World Diabetes Day).
When such organizations raise funds to supposedly “cure” diabetes or help diabetics – please beware! Don’t be one of those well-intentioned but fooled followers. They are instead funneling funds back to the drug makers, to their sponsors in a promotion profit-center of its own, or to fund drug research operations and thereby keep treating and not ever reversing diabetes (the latter being an economic disaster) with drugs.
For most individuals this is extremely hard to believe. Could modern life be so deeply full of commercial deceptions? But this is why medical care cost in the US has risen from 4.5% of GDP in the 1940’s (or in the pre-TV advertisement era and where thereafter drug tacking was powerfully pushed on the modern collective-subconscious-psyche) to 18% of GDP, and with the very worst of results. The major media who hugely accept drug advertising (with ad$s leading the pack of virtually all other industries) are corrupted thereby. The billions are spent on such advertising campaigns because selling of poisons with harmful “side-effects” is a vast psychological push, going against common sense. Politicians supported by Big Pharma lobbyists may tackle Smith Kline’s outright fraud, but not the larger, more insipid and concealed fraud of the diabetes treatment industry as a whole.
And without facing this very starkest of realities, nothing essentially changes. Medical costs will rise yet more. We and our loved ones become the holocaustic victims, my step-dad included – the abused, misused and taken advantage of.
