Frankly, I'm surprised anyone believes *anything* from Big Pharma corporations. So many (too many) drugs have been put on the market without proper
studies/research. These drugs then get promoted by mass media and the networks make huge profits from the advertising. Because of this, they dare
not bite the hand(s) that feed them; the network news won't run stories against Big Pharma advertisers because they would lose millions/billions in
advertisement. Doctors are compensated for prescribing these drugs to patients in many ways (and they are wined and dined at "medical conventions"
in exotic locales). So, the drugs get sold to the public.
Then, years later, it comes to light that these drugs harmed more than helped, and that the Big Pharma corporations anticipated this. The
corporations pay their fines and move on. Meanwhile, good people (average citizens) DIE. To them, we "average" serfs are just numbers. They make
their profits, satisfy their shareholders. We take drugs and DIE.
This is why the FDA and media are against holistic, "old world," and homeopathic healing with NATURAL herbs and extracts. Because those things are
cheap and readily available. They want to regulate natural food stores (to the point of having ATF-styled SWAT raids on mom-and-pop stores) so they
can charge you 100 times (1000 times) more for "medicine" that will probably cause terrible side effects or outright kill you.
And, this hasn't even touched on the topic of vaccines with mercury-based preservatives or the H1N1 "craze" a couple years ago that duped us into
making Big Pharma corporations billions in profits.
