How Big Pharma Creates Diseases For Its Medications. It’s Big Business!

Published

on

When pharmaceutical companies create a new drug, they are always looking for compounds that treat specific profitable disorders, especially if they have the potential for blockbuster status. Patent life is 20 years after the drug has been identified as viable in clinical trials – this means that no one else can make or sell the medication during that time.1

For this reason, pharmaceutical companies prep the marketplace for years prior for a successful launch with maximum impact and profit.

By the time a drug launches, doctors are ready to write prescriptions for that drug, and patients are primed to ask their doctors for it. Because it’s a name brand drug, the price is high, and pharma will want to keep that price point by protecting and extending their patent exclusivity as long as possible.

Pharma protects their patents in a number of ways. One option is to negotiate with generic drug manufacturers, asking them not to release their own versions for a set amount of time and money. Another way is to extend a patent by finding a new indication for it, thereby buying it another lifecycle as a brand name drug that sells at full premium price. In order to find this new indication, pharmaceutical companies have to get creative.

Pharma has found it profitable to create new illnesses to treat with successful existing drugs. An example of this phenomenon is Eli Lilly’s selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), Prozac. Prozac was originally launched and achieved blockbuster status with an indication for depression. The target market was doctors who specialized in central nervous system (CNS) disorders, Family Practitioners, and on the patient side, anyone who suffered from depression. As the first SSRI on the market, Prozac was hugely successful and widely prescribed for mild, moderate, and severe depression. In the USA, annual sales were $350 million in the first year alone and peaked at $2.6 billion a year.2

Doctors were also encouraged by Lilly’s pharmaceutical sales reps to prescribe Prozac for other “off label” uses. Off label uses are any symptoms that the drug is not indicated for and that haven’t been tested in clinical trials. Examples of off label use of an anti-depressant would be obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. It is interesting that prior to Prozac, there was no such “disease” as PMDD. Prozac was also recommended to be prescribed for shyness, fear of public speaking, and other non-medical conditions. And, patients were encouraged to ask for Prozac for these types of mild social phobias, making the drug very successful and profitable.

Because Prozac impedes sexual function, it is also recommended for premature ejaculation. Now that Prozac (fluoxetine) has gone generic, it is also prescribed off label for bulimia, post-partum depression, premenstrual syndrome, fibromyalgia, body dysmorphic disorder, pathological laughter or crying, narcolepsy, agoraphobia, trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder), seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and many other ills that plague the “worried well.”

“Nothing is as lucrative as a product that someone is desperately dependent on. And, nothing is better than getting those on board who aren’t even ill.”

– John Virapen, in his whistleblower book, “Side Effects: Death Confessions of a Pharma Insider” 

Merck developed a drug treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate, commonly referred to as BPH) named Proscar. Interestingly, Proscar was found to grow hair, and was launched as a brand new drug called Propecia for male pattern baldness which was now being positioned as a treatable “disease.” In reality, male pattern baldness is not a disease, it’s a common genetic condition. Gradual hair loss is a normal part of the aging process for many men. But, if repositioned as a disease that can be cured, it presents a huge market to be exploited for Merck.

Unfortunately, growing hair with the use of medication carries risks. In clinical trials, Propecia was found to cause sexual side effects such as decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and ejaculation disorder. The drug launched anyway to a prepared eager-to-grow-hair target market. What the manufacturer failed to disclose in the prescribing information (PI) was that those adverse events often lingered even after patients discontinued use of the drug. At least 700 lawsuits are pending in New York State with more to come in New Jersey. The issue is that Merck knew that the adverse events would persist after patients ceased use of the drug, and they hid that information from the public.3

Pharmacia (now Pfizer) created a compound that would later be marketed as Genotropin. This drug is a human growth hormone that is targeted at “slow growing” children.4 The brand team primed the marketplace for the drug by appealing to parents of small children, essentially insinuating that being short was, in fact, a disease. Stats were gathered and a case was built that taller adults have more confidence, enjoy more advantages like promotions and raises, and generally earn more money than their shorter coworkers. What parent would want their child to miss out on those advantages? What the manufacturer failed to disclose is that there are serious side effects that come along with the use of growth hormone in a child’s developing body.

The off-label use of Genotropin was supposed to be the real cash cow. The goal of the Product Managers was to tap into the beauty market by promoting human growth hormone as an anti-aging breakthrough, attempting to relabel the entire process of aging as a disease process in need of pharmaceutical treatment. Researchers had hopes that clinical trials would demonstrate the compound stimulated the growth of muscle mass and decreased fat. Those trials never bore fruit, and Pfizer was unable to push that off label use. But it doesn’t mind promoting Genotropin to orthopedists to inject into the joints of injured athletes who are looking to recover quickly from sports injuries. Using human growth hormone may cause such side effects as pain in joints and muscles, arm and leg swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, and gynecomastia in men (breast enlargement), and may also lead to heart disease and diabetes.5 These side effects were seen in older people rather than younger, but isn’t it older people who are more likely to take the bait of aging as a disease?

The trouble with prescribing any drug for off label use to treat a newly created disease, such as aging, is the potential for adverse events and even death. This is especially risky if that drug is prescribed by a General Practitioner who isn’t monitoring the patient for a specific disease the way a specialist would. Creating pseudo-diseases to increase profits isn’t about patient health. It’s about pharma wealth.

Egypt To Open A Giant Black Mystery Sarcophagus Despite Warnings

Published

on

Not long ago, Egyptian Archaeologists discovered a huge 2,000-year-old sealed coffin, and as you’d imagine, they want to open it to see who or what is inside.

The sarcophagus was discovered in a tomb deep under the Egyptian city of Alexandria earlier this month (July 2018). It’s believed to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria. It’s 9ft long, 5ft wide and 6ft deep, according to Mostafa Waziri, the general secretary of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

This has sparked quite the storm on the internet, as people point to the well known “curse of the pharaohs”, a term used to refer to a supposed curse believed to be thrown upon anyone who disturbs an ancient Egyptian mummy.

CTV News, who also picked up the story, explains,

In the 10 years that followed the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, 11 people who had at least visited the site died under sometimes myserious curcumstances, including lead researcher Howard Carter and several members of his team. Cureses involving ancient Egyptian tombs and artificats have also been the source of several Hollywood movies. Despite being on the verge of a supposed curse, other social media users are too intruiged to worry about the apparent risks.

A lot of mainstream media outlets present the idea of some sort of ‘curse’ as predominately mythological. The human mind definitely does, today that is, have trouble even comprehending how something like that could actually be real. Perhaps it invokes so much fear in one that we simply choose to ignore it, laugh it off and convince ourselves that such things may not exist.

It’s also interesting to note that the sarcophagus is covered in a thick layer of mortar, suggesting it has not been opened since the Ptolemaic period, which dates back between 305BC and 30BC. So, whatever is inside, it will still be intact…

Should It Be Opened?

Personally, I can understand the caution. If these coffins are to be left undisturbed by humanity, as instructed by the ancients, I believe these rules should be followed, and that’s probably because I am convinced in the validity of the concepts discussed in the Encyclopedia of Esoteric Studies, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, written by Manly P. Hall. In it, he describes how ancient rituals, practices, and magic were used by the ancients of different time periods, and this type of magic actually dominated in Egypt, which came to them from Atlantis.

“The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and grovelling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.” 

It seems to be that such a curse could only derive from black magic, because it is associated with punishment and death, in this example, an Egyptian curse.  Why should we take the description of Egyptian culture from those who wrote about it so seriously, for example, societal structure, food practices and more, but when it comes to their description of magic, for example, we instantly place it into the theoretical and mythical realm, without even considering the possibility that it could be real? Have we become that closed minded?

You can read a little bit more about the above-mentioned topics in the article linked below.

A Detailed Description of the Lost Land of Atlantis & The Real Reason For Their Downfall

How Some of the World’s Elite Uses Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power & Control

The sarcophagus wasn’t the only thing discovered in the tomb, there was also an alabaster head of a man who some believe could represent the person who is buried within the coffin.

RT news points out,

Most ancient tombs discovered in Egypt were looted in one era or another, often leaving archaeologists with a limited understanding of the person inside. This untouched artifact gives the eager team a rare opportunity to uncover the mummy for themselves….Some people suggested the sarcophagus coupled with the recent discovery of a Neolithic henge in Ireland is either a sign of an impending apocalypse… or a very extravagant marketing scheme for a new Indiana Jones movie.

It’s important to close on the note that, not all which has been discovered is presented to us. We live in a world of secrecy, millions of pages of documents are classified every single year, for anybody to study the true history of, let’s say America, it would truly be impossible because it’s incredibly difficult to get something that actually reflects the truth.

I like to use the United States as an example, specifically, the National Security Agency (NSA) which was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 60’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

What about archaeological discoveries, have they been kept from us? What about the Naszca mummies that were discovered in Peru? And all of the other discoveries within the realms of archaeology, like giants, completely left out of the historical record?

Historial and archaeological discoveries have the power to completely change what we know about human history and the origins of humanity. It wouldn’t be surprising that any artifact or physical traces of past life that don’t fit within the frame of accepted knowledge, or within the theory of evolution, to be completely unknown to humanity. This is one of many ways the global elite contain their control over humanity, and over the story of humanities origins.

Definitely, something to think about…

As far as the coffin goes, it looks they’re going to open it for sure…

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?

Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’

Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Unmasking Antifa

Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.

SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.

advertisement - learn more

(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:

‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in  disguise

‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.

Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Who Supports These Groups?

I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.

Can We Ignore Them?

Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?

There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.

Embers Of Fear Dying Out

For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.

As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.

Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.

A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.

Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.

While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.

Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.

ET Intervention?

It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,

One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:

“The United States Tried To Detonate A Nuclear Weapon On The Moon & Somebody Responded When We Did”

“Strong Evidence Shows Extraterrestrials Have Been Shutting Down Nuclear Missiles Worldwide For Decades, But Why”

Why Are They Stopping Nukes?

It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.
