Below is a clip taken from the One More Girl documentary, a film that examines the Gardasil vaccine, which was designed to prevent Human Papillomavirus. In it, Dr. Peter Rost, MD, a former vice president of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world (Pfizer), shares the truth about the ties between the medical and pharmaceutical industry.
Author of The Whistleblower: Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman, he has dedicated his new career to blowing the whistle on the corruption within the pharmaceutical industry. Considering his work experience, it would be an understatement to say that he is an insider expert on big pharma marketing.
Below are a couple of quotes from both a former and a current Editor-in-Chief of the two largest, and what are considered to be the most credible, medical journals in the world. It’s only fitting to include them into the article as they are directly related to what Dr. Rost discusses in the video.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
– Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”
– Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of the Lancet (source)

It’s Time to Rethink Current Medical Research and See the Bigger Picture
In 2005, Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis, currently a professor in disease prevention at Stanford University, published the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS), titled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False,” where he reveals, as the title suggests, that there is “increasing concern that most current published research findings are false.”
We now have extensive evidence and countless statements from insider experts that paint a very concerning picture. The science used to educate doctors and develop medicine is flawed. We are only ever exposed to studies that have been sponsored by big pharmaceutical companies, but these studies are not designed to take the long view. They are not designed to detect problems that can occur years or even decades after a treatment, or examine the risks of taking a drug for long periods of time. What we are not exposed to are the many studies that show significant risk associated with many of the products that pharmaceutical companies are manufacturing to help fight disease.
Even more concerning is the general population’s lack of awareness when it comes to these facts. This issue is definitely not going to be addressed in the mainstream news, and despite plenty of evidence to support it, some people will refuse to even look at or acknowledge that it exists. This cannot continue. Our world is changing and we must keep an open mind and consider reevaluating what we hold to be true. It’s 2015, and as we keep moving forward, there will be more information coming out that challenges the deeply held and engrained belief systems of many. It’s okay to look at information that goes against what you believe. In fact, it’s needed if we are going to move forward and create a better world for ourselves.
You would think the statements above the video, from longtime editors of such major, peer-reviewed scientific journals, would at least get some mainstream attention.
While Dr. Rost was still working for Pfizer, he made a couple of appearances in mainstream media. Here is an example of him speaking with the Wall Street Journal almost 10 years ago, before he blew the whistle.
This is why alternative media is important, especially in a time where more and more people are waking up to what is really happening on our planet.
It’s time to examine the research that’s being conducted all over the world by experts who are not sponsored by multinational “health” corporations. It’s the independent literature that matters. Brilliant work is being published regarding various drugs, cures, treatments, vaccines, and more, and we are not seeing it.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”
– Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (source)
