it comes to selling chemicals that claim to treat H1N1 swine flu, the pharmaceutical
industry's options are limited to two: Vaccines and anti-virals. The most
popular anti-viral, by far, is Tamiflu, a drug that's actually derived from
a Traditional Chinese Medicine herb called star anise. But Tamiflu is no
herb. It's a potentially fatal concentration of isolated chemical components
that have essentially been bio-pirated from Chinese medicine. And when you
isolate and concentrate specific chemicals in these herbs, you lose the
value (and safety) of full-spectrum herbal medicine.
didn't stop Tamiflu's maker, Roche, from trying to find a multi-billion-dollar
market for its drug. In order to tap into that market, however, Roche needed
to drum up some evidence that Tamiflu was both safe and effective. Roche
claims there are ten studies providing Tamiflu is both safe and effective.
According to the company, Tamiflu has all sorts of benefits, including a
61% reduction in hospital admissions by people who catch the flu and then
get put on Tamiflu.
problem with these claims is that they aren't true. They
were simply invented by Roche.
article recently published in the British Medical Journal accuses Roche
of misleading governments and physicians over the benefits of Tamiflu. Out
of the ten studies cited by Roche, it turns out, only two were ever published
in science journals. And where is the original data from those two studies?
Lost. The data has disappeared. Files were discarded. The researcher of
one study says he never even saw the data. Roche took care of all that,
he explains. So
the Cochrane Collaboration, tasked with reviewing the data behind Tamiflu,
decided to investigate. After repeated requests to Roche for the original
study data, they remained stonewalled. The only complete data set they received
was from an unpublished study of 1,447 adults which showed that Tamiflu
was no better than placebo. Data from the studies that claimed Tamiflu was
effective was apparently lost forever.
Atlantic reports, that's when former employees of Adis International (essentially
a Big Pharma P.R. company) shocked the medical world by announcing they
had been hired to ghost-write the studies for Roche.
even better: These researchers were told what to write by Roche!
of these ghostwriters told the British Medical Journal:
Tamiflu accounts had a list of key messages that you had to get in. It was
run by the [Roche] marketing department and you were answerable to them.
In the introduction ...I had to say what a big problem influenza is. I'd
also have to come to the conclusion that Tamiflu was the answer."
words, the Roche marketing department ran the science and
told researchers what conclusions to draw from the clinical trials. Researchers
hired to conduct the science were controlled by the marketing puppeteers.
No matter what they found in the science, they had already been directed
to reach to conclusion that "Tamiflu was the answer." Now,
I don't know about you, but where I come from, we call this "science
fraud." And as numerous NaturalNews investigations have revealed, this
appears to be the status quo in the pharmaceutical industry.
none of the "science" conducted by drug companies can be trusted
at all because it really isn't science in the first place. It's just propaganda
being dressed up to look like science. Sadly,
even the CDC has been fooled by this clinical trial con. As stated by author
Shannon Brownlee in The Atlantic:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention appears to be operating in some
alternative universe, where valid science no longer matters to public policy.
The agency's flu recommendations are in lockstep with Roche's claims that
the drug can be life-saving -- despite the FDA's findings and despite the
lack of studies to prove such a claim. What's more, neither the CDC nor
the FDA has demanded the types of scientific studies that could definitively
determine whether or not the company's claims are true: that Tamiflu reduces
the risk of serious complications and saves lives. Nancy Cox, who heads
the CDC's flu program, told us earlier this year she opposes a placebo-controlled
study (in which one half of patients would be given Tamiflu and the other
half would be given placebo), because the drug's benefits are already proven."
you catch that last line? The CDC isn't interested in testing Tamiflu because
"the drug's benefits are already proven." Except they aren't.
But this is how the pharmaceutical industry operates:
1) Fabricate evidence that your drug works.
Step 2) Use that fraudulent evidence to get your drug approved.
Step 3) Use fear to create consumer demand for your drug (and encourage
governments to stockpile it).
Step 4) Avoid any actual scientific testing by claiming the drug has already
been proven to work (and cite your original fraudulent studies to back you
is the recipe the CDC is following right now with Tamiflu. It's a recipe
of scientific stupidity and circular logic, of course, but that seems to
be strangely common in the medical community these days.
the FDA says Tamiflu doesn't work
The FDA, remarkably, hasn't entirely given in to the Tamiflu hoax. They
required Roche to print the following disclaimer on Tamiflu lables -- a
disclaimer that openly admits the drug has never been proven to work:
has not been proven to have a positive impact on the potential consequences
(such as hospitalizations, mortality, or economic impact) of seasonal, avian,
or pandemic influenza."
further, an FDA spokesperson told the British Medical Journal, "The
clinical trials... failed to demonstrate any significant difference in rates
of hospitalization, complications, or mortality in patients receiving either
Tamiflu or placebo."
the same message over and over again, like a broken record: Tamiflu
doesn't work. And the "science" that says Tamiflu does
work was all apparently fabricated from the start.
Tamiflu stockpiling scandal
Junk science, though, is good enough for the U.S. government. Based on little
more than fabricated evidence and Big Pharma propaganda, the U.S. government
has spent $1.5 billion stockpiling Tamiflu. This turned out to be a great
deal for Roche, but a poor investment for U.S. citizens who ended up spending
huge dollars for a medicine that doesn't work.
stated in the Atlantic:
public health agencies, and international bodies such as the World Health
Organization, have all based their decisions to recommend and stockpile
Tamiflu on studies that had seemed independent, but had in fact been funded
by the company and were authored almost entirely by Roche employees or paid
if Tamiflu did work, there are Tamiflu-resistant strains of H1N1 are now
upshot of all this is that governments around the world are flushing
billions of dollars down the drain stockpiling a drug that doesn't work
-- a drug promoted via propaganda and scientific fraud.
isn't the first time your government has wasted taxpayer dollars, of course
(it seems to be what the U.S. government does best), but this example is
especially concerning given that this was all done with the excuse that
natural remedies are useless and only vaccines and Tamiflu can protect you
from a viral pandemic. But as it turns out, vaccines and Tamiflu are useless
and only natural remedies really work. That's why so many informed people
around the world have been stocking up on vitamin D, garlic, anti-viral
tinctures and superfoods to protect themselves from a potential pandemic
that most world governments remain clueless to prevent.
it fascinating that the governments of the world are stockpiling
medicines that DON'T work, while the natural health people of the world
are stockpiling natural remedies that DO work. If a real pandemic
ever strikes our world, there's no question who the survivors will be (hint:
