  • Big Pharma killing "tens of thousands" globally for profit

    This story makes the olive oil fraud that I posted about yesterday look like small beer.

    I have to say I was never tempted by the viewpoint of the Left (and still am not) but the longer I've been watching the Ancestral Health scene the more I've become aware of just how cynical and wicked the business interest can be.

    I think by now anyone with two brain cells to rub together realises that biotech/pesticide companies like Monsanto are prepared to poison whole populations, to harm entire ecosystems, to basically rape the earth for a fistful of banknotes - though they, of course, cloak their rapacity and indifference to suffering in nauseating "humanitarian" rhetoric. (As Rochefoucauld says, "Hypocrisy is the compliment vice pays to virtue".) But how far behind them is Big Pharma? Not very far, I suggest.

    However, people are finally waking up to this.

    The Diet Doctor says outright that:

    Big Pharma Greed Is Killing Tens of Thousands Around the World
    And he's quite right.

    The Queen of England’s personal doctor of 21 years, Sir Richard Thompson, has joined forces with a group of experts led by Dr. Aseem Malhotra. They call for an urgent publice enquiry into the “murky business” of drugs firms.

    Together they have warned the public about the drugs firms developing medicines they can profit from, rather than medicines meant to benefit their customers. Quite often patients are given drugs they don’t need, drugs that are sometimes harmful and occasionally deadly for the patient.

    On another matter, if you can bear it here's another story that's hit the news today:

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...ng-school-meal

    Pesticide-laced school dinners! Isn't that something to reflect upon? Apparently, there are adults who in search of a profit will albeit indirectly "slay the little childer"

    However, since Mr. Sisson has an editorial today admonishing us not to get angry about things - I think he's quite right - I shall say that I'm not angry today. I am deeply concerned, though. I think the sick, the old, the poor and children are worthy of kindness and consideration and not there to be exploited for profit at the cost even of their lives. I wish more people in our civilisation - or with positions of power and influence in our civilisation - understood that.

    Simply not much left to say except that I agree.
