More Fraud By Drug Giant Merck – US$650 Million

The US Justice Department announced a US$650 million fraud settlement agreed to by pharmaceutical giant Merck for a fraud on patients and the US government healthcare system involving a conspiracy with US hospitals to give the elderly cheaper drugs but charging them for the more expensive product prescribed by the patients’ doctors.

Do you really want to trust the safety of your children to drugs and vaccines from a company which behaves like this?

See the story on Youtube and also our sister story of other systematic fraud by Merck:-

Drug Giant Merck – “Destroy” Critical Doctors “Where They Live” – October 12, 2009

Court evidence now available on-line at the University of California library shows drug giant Merck systematically targetted “hit-lists” of doctors to discredit, neutralise or destroy critics of the safety and effectiveness of Merck’s drugs.

You can read the documents yourself [see links in the article]. One memo stated:

we may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live….

Dr Andrew Wakefield said when interviewed by CBS:-

This is not conspiracy.  This is corporate policy.“  – [CBS News – Research Links Kids Vaccines & Brain Damage – October 9, 2009 childhealthsafety].

Wakefield is the British medical doctor who put child health safety over autism and the MMR vaccine before his career and has been hounded by big money ever since.

Governments expect parents to trust the health and safety of their children to drug companies like Merck, a manufacturer of the MMR and other vaccines.

Other recent examples of blatant ‘fixing’ of the published scientific evidence base includes that by Merck and by drug maker Wyeth.

Merck paid medical journal publisher company Elsevier [whose CEO Sir Crispin Davis sits on GlaxoSmithKline’s board] to publish a fake medical journal with articles favourable to Merck’s drugs: [Merck published fake journal – Bob Grant – The Scientist – 30th April 2009].

Drug maker Wyeth flooded medical journals with some 40 ghostwritten articles penned by prominent physicians who sold their name for cash, in an all-out effort to offset the scientific evidence linking its female hormone replacement drug, Prempro, to breast cancer: [Judge orders Wyeth papers unsealed – Associated Press – July 25, 2009].

Covert lobbying and manipulation is endemic:-

‘The use of PR to counter negative publicity’

‘221. ………. Considerable resources are invested into building long-term, sustainable relationships with stakeholders and ‘key opinion leaders‘ and journalists. These relationships are used to promote the use of certain brands and counter concerns relating to safety. Efforts to undermine critical voices in particular were identified, under terms of “issues management”. In later evidence, in response to the ISM’s memorandum, Pfizer stated that PR is entirely legitimate and can “help to educate and inform”. According to the PMCPA, PR activities may include “placing articles in the lay press, TV documentaries, soap operas etc“.’ [p60 ‘The Influence of the Pharmaceutical industry‘ 2004 – English Parliamentary Health Select Committee report [emphasis added]]

Flu Vaccine – Healthy Test Volunteer Coughing Blood Dismissed as “Not Caused by Vaccine”

Researchers Dismiss Munich Swine Flu Vaccine Test Subject Complaints of Horror Side-effects

This week the UK starts its swine flu vaccination campaign with doubts over the safety of the vaccine.

A participant in the German H1N1 vaccine trials suffered serious adverse reactions, including coughing up blood, but the lead researcher in the trial dismisses this as not caused by the vaccine: Swine Flu Vaccine: A test subject speaks out. Complaints of Horror Side-Effects Dismissed reports Nina Bautz of German newspaper Munich Merkur 21/8/09 – Google English Translation here.

[See also CHS’s companion stories: Flu Vaccine Cripples Healthy US Cheerleader for Life and Gardasil Victims – In Memoriam – Healthy Young Women – Aged 15 to 21 ].

Graduate businessman Axel Sch. (40). claims : “The vaccination has made me ill! – the test is irresponsible.” He says that within a few hours after the vaccination, on August 10, he had sweat on his forehead. “I felt totally beat. On the third day, my kidneys and head were aching and I got a fever. I then had a coughing fit – and the wash basin was suddenly red – it was blood!”

Next week the UK starts vaccinating pregnant women, people with chronic respiratory, heart, kidney liver or neurological diseases, those with diabetes requiring insulin or oral hypoglycaemic drugs, those who suffer from immunosuppression from disease or treatment and those who live with people having compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients. Immunisation of frontline health workers began this week.

LMU-medical researcher Frank von Sonnenburg, who is in charge of the German country-wide vaccine safety trial, does not consider these accounts credible.  He says that such side-effects cannot be related to the vaccine.  He does not deny that, as with other flu-vaccinations, flu-like symptoms may occur as a reaction to the vaccination. “Additionally, there may be light pain, redness or swelling at the injection site. Obviously many of the test subjects would have side-effects. We do such a study precisely because we want to find out any possible side-effects.”

Axel Sch. however insists that his complaints were a result of the vaccination. “Surely it is no coincidence that they occurred directly after the vaccination.” He criticizes the university, saying that he was not properly informed prior to the study. He said that for three days he was flat on his back during this heat. “When I phoned the LMU, they simply asked me the question needed to fill in their form and told me to see my doctor.” He now wants the medical costs and loss of earnings compensated by the medical insurance covering the trial.

The original report of this story in German newspaper Munich Merkur had no report of any other explanation for Axel Sch.’s condition.

Axel Sch. has participated in medical trials even when he was a student. He had also had good experiences with an LMU flu-vaccine study. “This is the reason why I immediately consented when they asked me if I would test the new vaccine.”

Now his trust in research is gone, he is quitting the vaccine trial.

Flu Vaccine Cripples Healthy US Cheerleader for Life


See the story of previously healthy Desiree Jennings horrifically crippled only days ago by the flu vaccine and just 10 days after getting the shot.  Desiree was a cheerleader and led an active life until now.

[ED: flu is not a major life-threatening illness for the vast majority and the “swine ‘flu” has proven to be milder.  People at risk from any infection ‘flu or another include those already seriously ill and those with compromised immune systems.]
