Suboxone and the House of Murder Big Pharma Built

It turns out that Dylann Storm Roof, aside from having parents whose naming privileges should have been revoked, was on suboxone or had recently come off it when he killed nine people in Charleston. This isn’t the first time a serial killer has been on “legal” psychotropic drugs manufactured and marketed by Big Pharma. In fact, one of the only common ties between almost all serial killers is Big Pharma: According to a data set of U.S. mass shootings from 1982-2012 prepared by Mother Jones Read more […]

Think Vaccine Deniers Pose a Public Health Risk? What About Antibiotics?

The use, overuse, and abuse of antibiotics potentially poses a greater public health risk than the declining implementation of vaccines: Antibiotics misuse can be costly and deadly. Last year, the CDC reported 23,000 annual deaths and 2 million sicknesses stemming from improper antibiotic use. After bacteria builds up a resistance to prescribed antibiotics, health care workers have to use expensive alternative medication. Additional tests, prolonged treatments and hospitalization, and lost income Read more […]

States With Legal Marijuana Have Far Lower Painkiller Drug Fatalities

Maybe legal painkiller drugs should be prohibited… This is only one facet that explains why there’s such an aversion to ending marijuana prohibition. Big Pharma is a massive lobbying force in Washington and throughout the states that has a vested interest in keeping marijuana illegal. It’s not because of “safety” or anything like that. Just look at these statistics from the CDC about legal prescription drug-related deaths in the U.S.: Drug overdose was the leading cause of injury Read more […]

New Drug Being Pushed in UK for Mild Alcoholism

If you drink two glasses of wine at night, you may have mild alcoholism. But don’t be alarmed because the NHS in the UK is here to help you. By giving you drugs. A new drug called nalmefene is scheduled to be prescribed to unsuspecting Britons to help reduce the health consequences of mild alcoholism: The plans mean GPs [General Practitioners, i.e., doctors] will actively ask patients about their alcohol consumption even when they see them for unrelated health matters such as low mood, inability Read more […]

We’re Still Demonizing the Wrong Drugs

USA Today posted a “shocking” article about a 19-year-old who ate a pot cookie and jumped/fell from a balcony to his death. In Colorado, of course. This is just one story in a million sprinkled like kief all over the media concerning the fallout from marijuana legalization—Colorado kids getting in to mom and dad’s marijuana edibles, pot at Colorado schools, underage pot use on the rise, etc. But the wrong drug is getting demonized here. The real problem drugs don’t even get a mention. For Read more […]

Study: Anti-Anxiety Drugs Are Killing You

Legal drugs in the land of Big Pharma are the worst. The side effects on some drugs are hilarious. I’ve seen multiple anti-depressants that cited “suicidal tendencies” as a side effect. What? “I’m not sad anymore at all, doctor. But now I want to kill myself.” Or there is the uncanny ability of anti-psychotic drugs to induce actual psychosis. I don’t get it. Well it turns out that, according to a seven-year study, prescription anti-anxiety drugs like Valium and Xanax nearly double Read more […]

Google “Partnering” with Corrupt FDA to Regulate Online Pharmacies

An article in the National Journal has the headline “How Google is Trying to Protect Your Drug Supply.” That sounds nice doesn’t it? Your drug supply. The article outlines how Google is now partnering with federal agencies (mostly the FDA) to make sure that dangerous drugs don’t get into the hands of poor, unsuspecting citizens like you. Thanks, Big Brother! I don’t know what we would do without you! Perhaps my sarcasm puzzles you. Let me explain. The FDA, as an organization designed Read more […]

Drug Dealers, Congress, And America’s Legal Drug Trade

It was not long ago that the tobacco industry and cigarette companies were under fire for selling an addictive product as safe to consume. Eventually big tobacco was exposed, laws were passed and taxes increased to restrict and discourage the use of an addictive, and yes, deadly product. It took decades for government to react to tobacco’s public health threat. Why? The answer was obvious. Big tobacco was paying powerful legislators off with huge campaign contributions. These days it is difficult Read more […]

Pharmaceutical Companies And The FDA Are Accomplices To Mass Murder

A cursory examination of recent mass murder statistics in the United States reveals an obvious common component of these heinous crimes. A component that is conveniently being overlooked by the newly invigorated anti-gun violence advocates in Washington. Mass violence crimes in America don’t always involve a gun, but in each and every case—going back to the year 2000—where large groups of innocent unarmed victims are attacked in America, the perpetrator is always found to be using a doctor Read more […]
