“This has been one of the great mistakes of modern medicine.” … David Kessler, MD, former FDA Commissioner
Former FDA Commissioner David Kessler, MD, (1990-1997) is talking about the current opioid drug addiction and abuse by medical doctors and pharmaceutical companies who promote them. Over the last two decades, there has been an overwhelming demand for, plus supply of, opioid drugs that now has turned into more health problems than anyone probably expected—most of all, prescribing medical doctors, who apparently are led to have ‘full faith and confidence’ in pharmaceutical drugs.
Can we blame doctors alone for such a religious-belief-like trust? No! Big Pharma companies constantly court the medical professions offering samples and monetary perks [10,11] for doctors prescribing all sorts of licensed prescription drugs, often without proper medical protocols regarding patients’ health needs.
Unfortunately, there have been too many physicians who have been caught breaking not only their Hippocratic oath but state and federal laws regarding prescribing and selling controlled substances from which they profited enormously [1,2,3].
Take into consideration the possible ‘rampant’ fraud in chemotherapy drugs, as practiced by Dr. Farid Fata [4,5,6] who’s been sentenced to 45 years in federal prison for his crimes. Is Fata the only one, especially since chemo is such a gold mine with very little oversight? We will never know until the U.S. CDC, FDA, and state medical boards operate with complete transparency in the investigation of medical fraud regarding pharmaceuticals that begins at and with the pharmaceutical manufacturers’ research, development, and advertising!
Why there? Because Big Pharma have the imperial status of being able to falsify and produce ‘consensus’ studies that not only prove their concoctions are ‘effective’, but also publish those studies in sham ‘peer review journals’ they own and publish—not declaring that Pharma’s in-house writers wrote the study report too! However, the mainstreaming sources for all pharmaceuticals are established medical journal platforms .
