How modern medicine got corrupted and is now based on fake science.

I have seen doctors push medications even when there was nothing wrong with someone. I have seen them prescribe medication even when they knew the person was having an adverse reaction to the drug they would just prescribe them another drug to try and hide the adverse reaction to the first and so on and so on. A person ends up taking ten different prescriptions at a time. It made me ask why do they push medications so much? I found the answers they make a lot of money from the pharmaceutical industry and the more money they make the pharmaceutical industry the more money the pharmaceutical industries pays them and the more gifts they give them. Just one free meal has been shown to sway a physician. By the time a student has graduated they have become conditioned to respond positively to the pharmaceutical industry and blindly listen to them without questioning their motives or truthfulness.

This is nothing new the tobacco industry paid medical professionals to promote their products as safe and even as being beneficial.

Even today this still goes on and the pharmaceutical industry pays people to ghost write. So modern day pharmaceutical research is just another version of tobacco science. Vioxx is and example of this happening and just as the ill effects of tobacco were hidden so were the ill effects of Vioxx.

We cannot count on our politicians to protect us because most of them have been bought by the pharmaceutical industry.

Major amounts of money is spent to influence medical professionals decision making to favor the pharmaceutical industry.

The pharmaceutical companies start grooming medical professionals while they are still in school. It has been shown to influence their practice and prescribing habits.

You can research how much the drug companies kickback to doctors and medical institutions at these links.

The pharmaceutical companies paid to have opioid promoted and caused the opioid epidemic. They have a lot of blood on their hands.

Studies have shown that how much money and gifts are kicked back to medical institutions and doctors influence how often they prescribe certain medications. The more the kick backs the more likely they were to prescribe them.

After studies like this one they passed laws to try to prevent it from occurring but the pharmaceutical industry have found ways around it.

Even the educational institutions medical institutions have not adequately addressed the conflicts of interest.

It is unlikely much will be done about it or the laws will be enforced because many of our politicians are funded by the pharmaceutical industry. It is destroying the reliability and credibility of moder medicine.

Doctors are not trained to see the missing data or bias in pharmaceutical research so they take it at it’s word even though often times it has been found to be flawed.

This is a website that follows the pharmaceutical money trail to politicians , medical institutions, educational institutions and medical professionals.

Unlike most research that has been proven flawed pharmaceutical research that has been proven flawed does not get restracted.

Much of the medical research is flawed and the truth of the results hidden. They influence the scientist to embellish the results to put things in a favorable light.

Research replication is supposed to be a way of testing the validity of the results but most research cannot be replicated. Yet the research is published and accepted by the medical community.
