8:23 PM - Big Pharma’s Fraudulent Research Papers
Even though the big revelations about Big Pharma's science paper research fraud came out years ago, most people are still not aware of this. Here's the scoop: Drug companies routinely pay P.R. firms to ghostwrite clinical science papers which are published in medical journals and forwarded to the FDA to "prove" the drugs are safe and effective. But it's all a farce: The papers are pure fiction, dreamed up by what are essentially marketing firms for the sole purpose of getting drugs approved even when they don't work.
See how this works? Big Pharma invents a drug that causes cancer, then hires a bunch of fraudulent P.R. firm scientists to slap together a series of fictional science papers, then the FDA approves the drug and doctors start pushing it. The drug companies bribe the doctors with free vacations to Hawaii, then prescriptions skyrocket, earning billions for the pharma giants. As the cancer rates start to skyrocket, the cancer industry cashes in on all the cancer surgery, radiation and chemotherapy profits.
It's called "repeat business," and it's the core business model of the corrupt pharmaceutical industry.
