People, after reading this article and after I know how evil big pharma is, I still can not believe the illegal things this people do in other nations that are illegal in the US.

Please read this and then take a mental note to avoid this pharma giant products if you can

It’s quite brilliant if you think about it.

Obviously you could never get away with testing dangerous drugs on children in the U.S. or Europe. But really…would anybody even notice–or care–if you used the children of Nigeria as guinea pigs for experimental drugs?


Or at least that’s what the evil geniuses at Pfizer might’ve been thinking.

Yes, while is "illegal" to test drugs in the US without approval of the FDA it seems that is ok to go to countries like Africa and kill babies while testing drugs.

1996: Eleven children died and many were disabled when Pfizer researchers tested a new antibiotic called Trovan on kids with meningitis

Do you think this evil corporation were embrassed by this? don't even think about it. While this happen in 1996 this investigation and deals when unoticed until now

Pfizer’s ethical track record, we can assume that nothing embarrasses these dirtbags.

As you’ll see in a moment, the diplomatic cable exposed some dirty dealing that would make you or me (or any human) feel deeply ashamed and disgusted with ourselves. So how did Pfizer executives respond? They sent out a spokesperson who basically said, “Blah, blah, blah. Deny, deny, deny.” And that was that. “Crisis” averted!

They just got themselves some dirty lawyers to fix the problem and to avoid been expoused by Africa for killing babies and children.

The drug Trovan was approved in 1998 in the US for adults but it caused liver failure so the FDA, but then was only used for emergency. But that was not the end of the drug testing by Pfizer.

1999: The European Union banned Trovan.

2000: The Washington Post reported that Pfizer produced a letter from a Nigerian ethics committee that approved the research before the 1996 trial. But the letter turned out to be fabricated by a Pfizer researcher who falsely backdated the letter.

2006: A Nigerian panel concluded that the Pfizer trial was an “illegal” test of an “unregistered drug.” The panel called the trial a “clear case of exploitation of the ignorant.”

2007: Nigeria filed lawsuits against Pfizer that included homicide and other criminal counts. The legal action sought about $9 billion in restitution and damages.

2010: Pfizer finally settled the suits for about $75 million. All criminal charges were dropped.

Read how this evil corporation used coherxion and dirty tactics to get away with dropping all charges and paying nothing compare to what they make in profits after illegal testing of this dangerous durg.

Drugs companies have no regards for humanity when it comes to profits.

Ever see the movie, The constant gardner? Its a pretty good one and deals with corrupt drug companies doing tests on poor nations.

They have little in the way of ethics and I think most here see the corruption in big pharma and tend to stay away from it. Unfortunatley the rest of the world seems to turn away, it is much easier to live in denial than to confront these sick corporate entities.

There is so much disease and hunger in this ares of the world, pharmaceutical companies could do alot to change this, yet they use them as human guinea pigs. It's disgraceful.

Sickening isn't it. It is not limited only to a single company it is all of them. Who can be sure of what has been done to the species.

Some other interesting articles as reminders that this is occurring everywhere.

Now, however, an amended lawsuit charges that the bacteria that left Myles permanently impaired came from a source recently blamed for other infections and death: contaminated alcohol prep pads made by the Triad Group of Hartland, Wis. Triad and its sister company, H&P Industries Inc., have been added to a growing list of defendants in the Masseys’ medical malpractice suit that alleges that the tainted wipes led to Myles’ devastating systemic injuries.


People with haemophilia in Taiwan are appealing a decision by the US courts that says they cannot sue a multinational drugs firm in the United States over allegations that they contracted HIV from contaminated blood products that the company knowingly dumped in Asia.


PARIS—Servier, the pharmaceutical company at the heart of a massive medical scandal in France, suffered several fresh blows to its credibility this week. Yesterday, a newspaper revealed that the company has come under fire from Europe's medicine watchdog for the way it studied the side effects of its drugs after they reached the market. Meanwhile, leaked court testimony by two former company scientists suggests that Servier deleted unfavorable information from the files with which it sought regulatory approval for Mediator, its diabetes drug, in the 1970s.


And a semi-decent website detailing many recalls for various reasons

The amount of information on drug testing and failures is incredible, still their money find the way into the pockets of government to turn their heads the other way when it comes to human deaths, US is a big testing ground for babies and children's vaccine and still people give away willingly their new born to be use as pin cushions for big Pharma profits making.

Is a shame that in this time and age, Hitler would be proud, no longer detention camps for human testing is needed now people willingly give themselves and countries give their citizens away for this drug testing.


The two biggest treat to humanity are big Pharma and Monsanto.
