As a young chemist working in the chemistry labs of corporate America, I watched as they promoted cancer causing drugs as anti-cancer remedies (tamoxifen). I also witnessed the pharmaceutically compliant media convince the world that depression was a disease and you needed the so-called antidepressant drug Prozac™ to treat it. I began to wonder, “How gullible are the masses?” The reaction to the swine flu scare answered this.
Shane Ellison has a masters degree in organic chemistry and is a two-time recipient of the prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Grant for his studies in biochemistry and physiology.
No awards found matching search criteria.
Shane Ellison is "The People's Chemist." He has a BS in biology from Fort Lewis College and an MS in organic chemistry from Northern Arizona University. Dissatisfied with Big Pharma's aggressive push for 24/7/365 drug use and their unwillingness to acknowledge natural medicine, he abandoned his career as a medicinal chemist for Array BioPharma and Eli Lilly to start Health-FX Nutrition, an on-line nutraceuticals company that offers scientifically sound nutritional supplements free of fillers, sugars and artificial flavors.
In his background as a chemist in graduate school and industry, Shane specialized in the design and synthesis of amino acids, peptides as well as hormone replacement and anti-cancer drugs.
As an undergraduate, he was a two-time recipient of the prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Grant for his studies in biochemistry and physiology. Experience taught him a great deal about the effects of drugs on the body and the healing relationship we all have with naturally occurring products.
Perhaps, as an undergraduate the grant wasn't in his name?
In any case, he has written many, many articles and books on the subject of big pharma.
