Terrifying Side Effects of Prescription Drugs

The side effects of prescription medication can be horrific. Is it really worth taking medication if the cure is worse than the disease?

Here are just a few of the side effects that come with many prescription drugs currently on the market.

  • Drainage, crusting, or oozing of your eyes or eyelids
  • Hallucinations, fainting, coma
  • Paralysis
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Nerve pain lasting for several weeks or months
  • Bleeding that will not stop
  • Coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds

One drug on the market, EvaMist, has possible side effects that include cancer, stroke, heart attack, blood clots, and dementia! EvaMist is a treatment for menopause symptoms such as hot flashes.

Vaccine Raises Risk of Blood Disorder

Several studies have suggested that there could be a link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and an increased risk of immune thrombocytopenic purpura.

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura, or ITP, is an immune system malfunction in which the body reacts to its own platelets as foreign invaders and destroys them.

An analysis of data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink, covering more than a million children who had received at least one MMR vaccination, showed that the proportion of ITP cases attributable to MMR exposure among children less than two years old ranged from 76 percent to 86 percent.

Drugs In Your Drinking Water

A vast array of drugs, including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones, have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. Drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas.

The presence of so many prescription drugs, as well as over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen, is causing worries among scientists about long-term consequences to human health.

Water providers rarely disclose this information; the head of a group representing major California suppliers said the public "doesn't know how to interpret the information" and might be unduly alarmed.

Although researchers do not yet understand the exact risks that arise from decades of exposure to random pharmaceuticals, recent studies have found alarming effects on human cells and wildlife.

How Drug Companies Covertly Influence the Content of Medical Literature

April 16, 2008 by: David Gutierrez
Pharmaceutical companies regularly carry out every aspect of a study on their products, then solicit academics to put their names on the final papers in order to disguise their involvement, according to an essay published in the journal PLoS Medicine. Author Sergio Sismondo calls this practice "ghost management," to distinguish it from mere ghost writing.

"In extreme cases, drug companies pay for trials by contract research organizations (CROs), analyze the data in-house, have professionals write manuscripts, ask academics to serve as authors of those manuscripts, and pay communication companies to shepherd them through publication in the best journals," Sismondo writes. "The resulting articles affect the conclusions found in the medical literature, and are used in promoting drugs to doctors."

Sismondo points to a study conducted by David Healy and Dinah Cattell, who analyzed Pfizer's involvement in managing studies on its product Sertraline. The researchers uncovered that through a CRO, Pfizer was keeping careful track of these studies from planning to publication. The articles managed by Pfizer comprised between 18 and 40 percent of all articles published on the drug between 1998 and 2000.

These articles were universally positive about the drug and under-reported its side effects. They were also published in more prestigious journals and were cited nearly three times as frequently as more critical articles not managed by the company.

Ghost management has become such a huge industry that a professional association has even been established for it -- the International Publication Planning Association.

Sismondo notes that while Healy and Cattell looked at only one drug, the evidence suggests that ghost management is widespread. When it was revealed that a journal article on Merck's drug Vioxx had failed to mention the deaths of certain participants, for example, lead author Jeffrey Lisse pleaded innoncence: "Merck designed the trial, paid for the trial, ran the trial," Lisse said. "Merck came to me after the study was completed and said, 'We want your help to work on the paper.' The initial paper was written at Merck, and then it was sent to me for editing."

Have You Received Your Hiroshima Treatment Yet

“Have You Received Your Hiroshima Treatment Yet”
By Robert H. Sorge, N.D., Ph.D., Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine

Orthodox drug medicine becomes more and more dangerous to the public health each and every single day. How they get away with their criminal mal-practices defies human reasoning.

If you think “Hiroshima” is a new type of alternative medicine treatment, think again. As unbelievable as it may seem, orthodox drug medicine doctors in the name of health care are exposing fellow citizens and human beings with more radiation than the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with every CT scan they administer.

What is a CT scan? A CT scan is a diagnostic tool that rotates around the body taking multiple x-rays of targeted organs and area’s of your body from various angles. These images are assembled by a computer into three-dimensional cross sections that provide much greater clarity and detail than every before. This is certainly a valuable diagnostic tool in an extreme emergency.

Here is the horror. CT scans are now being used in routine unnecessary and frivolous procedures. What you are not being told is you are being bombarded with 100 to 200 times the radiation of a chest x-ray. If you think you can be exposed to that much radiation and not greatly increase your chances of cancer, think again. Seventy million CT scans were performed last year in the U.S. Just think what that means to the career industrial complex. The orthodox, drug medicine, industrial complex is guaranteeing its financial future.

I didn’t use the name of “Hiroshima” just to get your attention or for dramatic effect alone. David Brenner and colleagues from Columbia University Medical Center reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that the typical radiation dose for a single CT scan is (15mSv). Most patients are required to take three or four CT scans over the course of their treatment. That’s as much radiation exposure as A-bomb survivors at Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Did anyone stop to ask if the cancer rate increased after the A-bomb was dropped on these two Japanese cities?

The Columbia researchers tell us that CT scans are directly responsible for over 2% of the national total cancer and that’s just for starters. We’ll get the real numbers from the medical gang years later, like we usually do. For many it will be too late.

Of particular concern are the 15 million children who got the Hiroshima cocktail in the last three years. Their small developing bodies are much more sensitive to the adverse effects of radiation. With the orthodox drug gang pitching the benefits of CT scans, the growing popularity to view these wonderful, colored 3-D pictures at the insurance company’s expense, the financial interests of thousands of dollars a pop and the unbridled over use of this technology, how is it even remotely possible for cancer rates not to increase exponentially?

Radiation even in very small exposures is an immune suppressor. Every organ, gland, system, nerve and cell of your body is compromised, weakened and in some cases destroyed. It is no longer a matter of just cancer increasing. Everyone who has been exposed to this medical procedure, without exception, is now more prone to every potential degenerative disease that exists. Radiation exposure and its long term after effects, disables, maims and kills as we learned from the survivors of both Nagasaki and Hiroshima and 100 years of medical use.

Everyone has under performing systems, genetic pre-dispositions and individual weaknesses. Whatever they are, wherever they may be, modern day medicine has much magnified them many times over. You are now weaker, more susceptible and much more inclined to develop disease in that area of pre-disposition.

As surprising as it may seem, 93% of the doctors licensed to practice medicine and 53% of the nations radiologists, according to Julian Whitaker, M.D., editor of “Health and Healing” newsletter, were not aware of the adverse affects of the CT scan risk of cancer. Can you imagine this? It’s like the blind leading the blind.

Something seems to be wrong here. Where is our FDA, Center for Disease Control, American Cancer Society, Board of Medical Examiners, Consumers Protection Agency, Department of Health and Human Services, American Medical Society, and Medical News? Why aren’t they reporting this to you? Remember these are the same people who want to take our vitamins, herbs and natural treatments from us.

If you’ve received the Hiroshima/Nagasaki cocktail don’t think your thyroid is right. The thyroid is extremely sensitive to even very small doses of radiation. Every emergency doctor knows this. Why haven’t you been informed of this fact? After your thyroid has been Hiroshima/Nagaskied, next in sequence is your pineal. Then your pituitary, then your male/female hormones. In fact, it’s not possible for any hormone to be the same.

Most ground zero New Yorkers know what environmental diseases they suffered from 9-11 and they weren’t exposed to the after effects of an atom bomb. The people of Nagasaki and Hiroshima who were exposed to the atomic bomb radiation were never right. Even in the next generation, most were never healthy. Why should you think everything is O.K. for you if you’ve been exposed to the same amount of radiation?

Iaotrogenic disease (doctor induced) is the 3rd cause of death in the U.S. After heart disease and cancer comes seeing your orthodox drug medicine doctor and fulfilling his prescriptions. CT scanning will do much to maintain that statistic. Modern day orthodox drug medicine is a very dangerous practice.

CT scans are being prescribed like jelly beans these days. It’s all about the money. Most people don’t need them, ever. The questions you have to ask your doctor are, “Is this necessary?” “Is there a safer alternative?” “What about ultra sound or MRI?” and “What about watchful waiting?” Patients are being Hiroshima/Nagaskied these days as a screening tool for problems that don’t exist, may never exist or even imagined. Patients are being told that CT scans will detect problems in their early stages when they are treatable and as a result, save lives.

Julian Whitaker, M.D., says, “this is non-sense. Full body CT scans are more likely to reveal abnormalities of dubious importance which not surprisingly funnel patients into further testing and unnecessary medical procedures.” Dr. Whitaker further states that, “No research supports the benefits or safety of CT scans. In fact, the American College of Radiology and other medical organizations actively discourage their use.”

It seems that the orthodox drug medicine can’t help themselves. They can’t resist filthy lucre. They continue to repeat themselves, performing mindless stents, angioplasty, double, triple, quadruple, by-pass surgery, and chemotherapy, all scientifically unproven and dangerous procedures. Now they have added CT scans to their list of killer but money making procedures. What will be next?

The Hiroshima/Nagasaki effect is only the beginning of this Dr. Frankenstein. Minor irregularities will obviously be detected with this technology. What do you think happens next? Fear…..fear…..fear! The whoremongers of fear strike into patients. They specialize in triggering this emotion. Patients are told they have cancer or cancer is implied. What they are not told is 99.9% of the time this irregularity is meaningless. The body surrounds it, chews it up, annihilates it and spits it out. A strong immune system is the best cancer control on the planet.

I’ve seen scores of cases of women with perfectly fine breasts get them chopped off because of some nebulous finding on a CT scan. Hundreds of others getting lymph nodes chopped out, or other organs removed, harmful chemotherapy administered and other unnecessary and dangerous medical procedures performed after being CT scanned.

It is urgent if you have been CT scanned
for any reason in the last five years.

1 You must contact your alternative doctor immediately for a full evaluation.

2. After your test results come back discuss in detail what a radiation detox treatment program consists of. Your health and life could in danger. Radiation exposure has long term implications.

Be certain your thyroid is evaluated for optimal function. Do not accept the diagnosis, “it’s normal”. That is meaningless. You want your thyroid function to be tested against optimal function, not just disease.If you are fatigued or not repairing as quickly as before your CT scan, have your pituitary gland checked. Your human growth hormone production may be greatly curtailed. This affects your body’s ability to repair itself and remain youthful.

5. If your immune system has been compromised since your CT scan, discuss with your alternative medical doctor a personal I.V. nutrition, chelation, therapy program based on your individual needs. Do not wait for your health to collapse to take action

6. If you are suffering from chronic fatigue since your CT scan, discuss with your alternative medicine doctor, ozone infused far infrared sauna detoxification therapy, direct I.V. ozone therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen. Oxygen at the cellular level is key to cancer prevention and high level wellness.

7. Be sure to discuss with your alternative medical doctor bio- identical male/female hormone restoration therapy. Radiation exposure even in small exposures down regulates and ages hormones rapidly. You need optimal hormone production for a healthy immune system.

8. Radiation destroys cells. Discuss with your doctor a vitamin saturation therapy program based on your individual biochemistry.

9. If you are a cancer survivor, discuss with your doctor an alternative medicine, cancer nutritional, support program to aggressively help prevent re-occurrence.

10. Consider getting away to a body, mind, spirit, health, retreat to get reorganized to attack the long term destroying effects of Hiroshima/Nagasaki radiation exposure.

Several Conditions that YOU NEVER need Pills for!!

n the April 2008 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, researchers explained how in many cases, the non-pharmacological approach can accomplish as much, or more, than pills.

In more recent years, a growing body of studies are showing that simple lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise are effective remedies for many ills.

These seven common conditions can be managed without medication:

  1. Arthritis
  2. Cholesterol
  3. Cognitive decline
  4. Depression
  5. Diabetes
  6. High blood pressure
  7. Osteoporosis

Former Drug Sales Rep Tells All Drug Pushers!

Shahram Ahari, who spent two years selling Prozac and Zypraxa for Eli Lily, told a Senate Aging Committee that his job involved "rewarding physicians with gifts and attention for their allegiance to your product and company despite what may be ethically appropriate."

Ahari claims that drug companies often hire former cheerleaders and ex-models, as well as former athletes and members of the military, even if they have no background in science.

During their five-week training class, Ahari says he was taught sales tactics such as:
  • How to exceed spending limits for important clients
  • How to be generous with free samples to leverage sales
  • How to use friendships and personal gifts to foster a "quid pro quo" relationship
  • How to exploit sexual tension
Ahari claims that he's even heard stories about sales reps helping to pay the cost of a doctor's swimming pool, or taking a doctor to a nightclub where a hostess was paid to keep him company.

For this work, sales reps often earned more than researchers. On top of a base salary of $50,000 for starting reps, Ahari says, "there were four quarterly bonuses, an annual bonus, stock options, a car, 401K, great health benefits, and a $60,000 expense account."
