I found this and thought it was worth publishing in full. It’s taken from a study on statin therapy in older people. It’s probably worth pointing out that the pharmaceutical industry is quite keen to have statin therapy widely adopted. In any case, to give some background, here’s what the study concluded:
I finally got my husband to see ' THE LIGHT'!! Thank you for this.😊
Perhaps the biggest conflict of recent years — Pfizer (convicted of health care fraud in 2009 to the tune of $2.3 billion) being granted emergency use authorisation for experimental mRNA gene therapy based on the results of its own clinical trials.
And the FDA allowing Pfizer to withhold the data for 75-years (subsequently reduced to 8 months after court proceedings).
Oh hey nothing to see here. Move on little man. Right? The ENTIRE medical complex is a conflict of interest. Obamacare, CDC NIH FDA HHS ALL unconstitutional and if we ever get a President that truly believes in the constitution he/she would shut them all down and many other federal agencies as well.
I recall all well how the fake news had it all over the place concerning statins. They were ballyhooing some kind of study that indicated everybody in the United States including children would benefit being on statins for their entire lifetime. Oh yeah I remember it all too well and it was somewhere in the vicinity of 15 or 20 years ago. I remember seeing it and thinking this is insane.￼. This was right on CBS news at the time￼ and I’ll bet it showed up everywhere else🤬. “A pill for every ill”￼￼
And the root cause of these conflicts of interest are the iron-clad legal protections applied to patent/patentable drugs and vaccines. And the result: Massive revenues to Big Pharma and the FDA, NIH, and CDC manifesting in the medical fascism we’re seeing so clearly now. Meanwhile, orphan/off-patent drugs (like Ivermectin and Hydoxychloroquine) - and the natural, non-patentable products - are ignored or maligned, as are the doctors who integrate them into medical practice.

What a frigging joke! It’s a big circle jerk!!!
They should have their funders' logos on patches they wear on their lab coats when presenting, on the same principle as stock car drivers.
I ran across this the other day. We know many studies massage their statistics in order to mislead and manipulate the public, including doctors and people who should know better. Kind of breathtaking to hear them say it out loud.
'The sooner the medical establishment frees itself from Big Pharma domination and truly examines the real benefits and harms of its armoury of drugs the better. An example of Big Pharma’s attitude is given in Gigerenzer’s book Risk Savvy: How To Make Good Decisions (p. 165) “After my first CME lecture, a representative of the industry (BP) approached me: “Very helpful,” he commented, “but we will of course go on using relative risks for advertising benefits.” In short inflated results are good for advertising.'
I was put on a statin about 2004 for high cholesterol (high good cholesterol, low bad cholesterol btw). I ended up with left side heart failure, confirmed via echocardiogram, the GP took me off the statin, the cardiologist said there wasn't a treatment. Great. I treated myself with high doses of ubiquinol and CoQ-10, and a bit of some other supplements for the heart. 5 years later another echo showed no evidence of the earlier failure. The companies are holding back a patent for statin compounded with CoQ-10. They knew.
Dr Aseem Malhotra the cardiologist who has recently converted to warning about the mRNA jabs, produced an excellent piece for the Lancet or BMJ (I can’t remember which) some years ago pointing out that the side effects of statins far outweigh any benefits and he said quite recently on GB news that they are a fraud by big pharma. Furthermore, both the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research get a lot of funding from drug companies and BHF has always been very pro statin therapy.
Looks like the conflict of interest statement t might be longer than the actual article... 🤦🏻♀️
Gotta luv the "outside the submitted work" bit.
So, they fund all sorts of other things that person is doing, but that is ok because of course it can never affect his/her opinion on this "submitted work".
Cute. Real cute.
Shared. Thank you for putting this out. I don't see how the corruption can get any clearer. So glad I got my dad to quit taking his statins a few years ago and have been able to keep my mom from succumbing to the BS.
As an aside but related topic. I quit listening to Peter Attia's podcast when he had Paul Offit in 2020 on to make the "final" claim that vaccines don't cause autism. I listened to Tom = just take the damn statins = Dayspring with an open mind. Couldn't listen to Offit though.
The medical complex, the "scientific journals," and the "government leaders" have become the whores of big pharma.
If one picture speaks a thousand words, it follows that with enough money, the picture can be bought.
An excellent book that is related to this subject is called, “Butchered by Healthcare“. Highly recommend
