Pharma Finding New Ways to Kill Us

It’s no longer just the side effects of their medicines.

A new study found “excessively high” levels of antibiotic and antifungal drugs in water sources near a major drug production center in India where 50% of the country’s drug exports are produced and a fifth of the world’s generic drugs. Unsurprisingly, the researchers also found high levels of microbes that were resistant to those drugs.

It should give us no comfort that this was found in India and not the US. Microbes travel long distances with ease. A drug-resistant pathogen first noticed in parts of China infected its first US patient last year.

Of the twenty-three water samples the researchers took, all but one contained bacteria that were resistant to multiple drugs; all samples contained carbapenemase-producing bacteria, which are known as the “nightmare bacteria” because it is virtually untreatable and kills up to 50% of those who get infected.

Some drugs were found in concentrations hundreds or thousands times higher than recommended safe limits. One water sample contained an antifungal drug in concentrations 950,000 times higher than the safe limit.

Sadly once again, Big Pharma is getting a little help from the FDA. In order to export drugs to the US, foreign drug manufacturers must adhere to good manufacturing processes and are supposed to be inspected periodically by the FDA. Given that the FDA is way behind on its inspections, the manufacturing practices foreign companies must follow do not include anything about contaminating the environment.

And as we have reported before, here in the US people dump drugs into the toilet to dispose of them or they become part of human waste. Municipal treatment plants don’t even test for the presence of these drugs, so treated water or sludge put on farmland may be loaded with them.

As we’ve reported before, antibiotic resistance is a growing catastrophe and expected to kill ten million people a year worldwide by 2050. Even now, these superbugs kill around 700,000 people a year. This public health crisis is fueled by over prescription of antibiotics and overuse of these medicines on CAFOs (concentrated feeding animal lots). Now we can add Big Pharma’s pollution of our waterways to the list. Even if we refuse to take pharmaceutical drugs and rely on natural alternatives to antibiotics, we can still be sickened or even killed by them.

Due to Modern Medicine: You Are Being Duped, Doped & Dying in America

America has collapsed into a PHARMA STATE run by government-protected drug cartels

Much like a “narco state” that’s run by narco terrorists, America has now collapsed into a pharma state run by “legal” drug cartels protected by a hopelessly corrupt government.

The evidence is all around you: How the drug cartels control Congress, universities, medical schools, science journals and of course the entire fake news media (previously known as the “mainstream media”).

The pharmaceutical industry has more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than any other industry, including the weapons industry. Similarly, Big Pharma is routinely caught committing felony crimes involving price fixing or bribery “kickback” schemes such as the GlaxoSmithKline criminal bribery network that involved over 40,000 U.S. doctors.

IT’S OVER! America is now collapsing into a Pharma state from NaturalNews on Vimeo.

Big Pharma is a massive criminal racketeering enterprise with a devastating cost in human lives, suffering and financial bankruptcy. If the parasitic drug cartels are not stopped, they will destroy America by obliterating its financial solvency, human health and even human freedom.

Already, the drug cartels are pushing for mandatory vaccination laws — a form of medical tyranny and violence — that allow the government to forcibly inject you (essentially at gunpoint) with anything the drug companies demand, no matter how dangerous. This includes, by the way, human fetal tissue, DNA from diseased animals, toxic heavy metals, brain-damaging chemicals and other ingredients confirmed by the CDC as being used in vaccines. (See The Truth About Vaccines documentary series for more details.)

No meaningful medical reform can ever take place under the current pharma regime

As a pharma state, America cannot extricate itself from the corruption and malfeasance of the pharmaceutical industry, which is exactly why no meaningful Obamacare repeal or reform can ever succeed: There’s too much money at stake for the drug cartels that wield monopoly influence in Washington.

Both the FDA and CDC have become “captive” agencies that serve primarily to protect the monopoly interests of the pharmaceutical giants, and even the FTC obeys Big Pharma by seeking out and destroying producers of natural products that might compete with Big Pharma’s high-profit drugs.

In the same way that Colombia existed as a narco state, America is now a pharma state, meaning that pharmaceutical interests now control the government, the media, the universities and even the “science” (which means it isn’t really science at all).

Like a dangerous parasite, this pharmaceutical infestation of nearly every institution in the nation will, of course, bankrupt and destroy America’s financial solvency, leading to a collapse and “reboot.” It is vital that when the reboot comes, Americans reject the drug cartels that destroyed our nation, our health, our financial solvency and even our minds in many cases (with mind-altering chemical medications).

Drug Companies Flooded This State With More Than 780 Million Pain Pills!!! WHAT?????????????

The United States is embroiled in a fierce battle against opioid abuse. In 2014, there was a 3.4-fold increase in the number of opioid overdose deaths in America. The state hit hardest by the opioid crisis is West Virginia, where drug companies pumped 782 million pain pills into the state over the last 6 years.

In 2015, West Virginia had the highest rate of opioid overdose deaths in the country. Since 1999, overdose deaths have quadrupled in the state.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail obtained previously confidential drug shipping sales records sent by the DEA to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s office. The paper used the records to disclose the number of pain pills sold to every pharmacy in the state, as well as the drug companies’ shipments to all 55 counties in West Virginia between 2007 and 2012. 

Their findings, both astounding and infuriating, were documented in a report published in the paper on December 17.

One drug company shipped nearly 9 million hydrocodone pills to a single pharmacy in Mingo County over the course of 2 years. The rural, impoverished county has the 4th-highest prescription opioid death rate of any county in the U.S.

In Wyoming County, which has the highest overdose rate in the entire nation, shipments of OxyContin doubled. One privately-owned pharmacy in the town of Oceana received 600 times as many oxycodone pills as the Rite Aid pharmacy only 8 blocks away.

In total, from 2007 to 2012, drug companies shipped 224,260,980 oxycodone pills to West Virginia. Wholesalers flooded the state with 555,808,292 hydrocodone pills during the same time period.

 That comes to about 433 pain pills for every man, woman, and child in West Virginia.

No wonder drug wholesalers and their lawyers fought against the Gazette-Mail getting its hands on those shipping records. They went so far as to bring court actions against the newspaper to stop it from publishing the numbers.

Former Delegate Don Perdue, a Democrat from Wayne County, said:

“These numbers will shake even the most cynical observer.”

Perdue, a retired pharmacist, added:

“Distributors have fed their greed on human frailties and to criminal effect. There is no excuse and should be no forgiveness.”

The Biggest Offenders Even as overdose deaths continued to climb throughout West Virginia, drug companies continued shipping mountains of pills into the state. The majority of the painkillers came from the nation’s 3 largest prescription drug wholesalers: McKesson Corp., Cardinal Health, and AmeriSource Bergen Drug Co. These companies supplied more than half of all opioid pills sold statewide during those 6 years.

McKesson, Cardinal, and AmeriSource spent a decade sidestepping rules requiring them to report suspicious orders for controlled substances in West Virginia to the state Board of Pharmacy, the newspaper found. Not that it would have mattered anyway; the board failed to enforce the same regulations that were established in 2001. Rather, the board gave glowing inspection reviews to mom-and-pop pharmacies in the southern counties that ordered more opioids than could possibly be taken by people with legitimate prescriptions for pain. 

From 2007-2012, opioid overdose deaths in West Virginia skyrocketed 67%. While people were dying, the drug wholesalers’ CEOs raked in salaries and bonuses in the tens of millions of dollars. McKesson, the 5th-largest corporation in America, had the highest-paid executive in the country in 2012.

McKesson has had its fair share of run-ins with the law over its pain pill distribution.

The company was sued by the DEA and 6 other states in 2008 for supplying hundreds of suspicious hydrocodone orders to rogue pharmacies. McKesson settled the lawsuit by agreeing to pay more than $13 million in fines and monitor its pill supply more closely.

In January 2016, Attorney General Morrisey sued McKesson, alleging that the distributor violated West Virginia consumer protection laws and the Uniform Controlled Substances Act by flooding the state with tens of millions of pain pills.

In the lawsuit, Morrisey also alleged that between 2007 and 2012, McKesson delivered nearly 100 million doses of hydrocodone and oxycodone to the state. Of that total, 3.4 million doses went to Mingo County alone.

No Excuse

Drug wholesalers have defended themselves in court cases by pointing out that there wouldn’t be such a heavy demand for pain pills if there weren’t so many doctors prescribing them. Furthermore, the drugs would never reach patients’ hands without the willing participation of pharmacists.

McKesson General Counsel John Saia wrote in a company letter:

“The 2 roles that interface directly with the patient – the doctors who write the prescriptions and the pharmacists who fill them – are in a better position to identify and prevent the abuse and diversion of potentially addictive controlled substance.”

They do have a point, but it makes them no less guilty.

Year after year, McKesson and the other distributors shipped more and more pills into the state. McKesson supplied Mingo County with more hydrocodone pills in a single year – 3.3 million – than it supplied over 5 other consecutive years combined.

The potency of the pills being shipped kept increasing, too, according to DEA data.

Sam Suppa, a retired Charleston pharmacist who spent 60 years working at retail pharmacies in West Virginia, said:

“It starts with the doctor writing, the pharmacist filling, and the wholesaler distributing. They’re all 3 in bed together. The distributors knew what was going on. They just didn’t care.”

Between 2007 and 2012, McKesson, Cardinal Health, and AmeriSource collectively shipped 423 million pain pills to West Virginia, earning themselves a combined net income of $17 billion.

Over the past 4 years, the 3 companies’ CEOs collectively received salaries and other compensation of more than $450 million. Last year, McKesson’s CEO collected compensation worth $89 million. That’s more than the incomes of 2,000 West Virginia families combined.

Doctors told to avoid prescribing opiates for chronic pain

The nation’s top federal health agency urged doctors to avoid prescribing powerful opiate painkillers for patients with chronic pain, saying the risks from such drugs far outweigh the benefits for most people.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in its first ever guidelines for dispensing the morphine-like, addictive drugs, such as Vicodin and Oxycontin, said it took the action Tuesday to combat the nation’s deadly prescription painkiller epidemic.

The guidelines carve out an exception for patients receiving cancer treatment or end-of-life care. When doctors determine that such drugs are necessary in other situations, the CDC advises doctors prescribe the lowest possible dose for the shortest amount of time.

About 40 Americans die each day from overdosing on prescription painkillers, according to the CDC. In 2013, an estimated 1.9 million people abused or were dependent on prescription opiates.

“We know of no other medication routinely used for a nonfatal condition that kills patients so frequently,” said CDC director Thomas Frieden. “We hope to see fewer deaths from opiates. That’s the bottom line. These are really dangerous medications that carry the risk of addiction and death.”

The CDC directed the guidelines to primary care physicians, who prescribe nearly half of opiates. Doctors aren’t legally obligated to follow the recommendations, which are intended for adult patients, but such directives often have influence.

The CDC hopes the guidelines will help doctors determine when to begin or continue opiates for chronic pain, which type of painkiller to choose, how long to administer the drugs and how to weigh their risks.

Andrew Kolodny, executive director of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, called the recommendations a “game changer” that doctors are likely to follow.

“For the first time, the federal government is communicating clearly that the widespread practice of treating common pain conditions with long-term opioids is inappropriate,” Kolodny said. “The CDC is making it perfectly clear that medical practice needs to change because we’re harming pain patients and fueling a public health crisis.”

American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network President Chris Hansen criticized the move for disregarding the important role of pain management for cancer survivors “who experience severe pain that limits their quality of life.”

“Pain does not end when an individual completes treatment,” he said in a statement. “Most often, cancer patients deal with lasting effects from their disease or treatment including pain for a significant period of time or indefinitely.”

Many prescription opiates on the market are as addictive as heroin, and poorly control chronic pain, Frieden said. Doctors should use therapies other than opiates first, including exercise or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, he said.

When the benefits of prescription opiates outweigh the risks, doctors should talk to patients about their treatment goals and when they will stop using the drugs. Due to a high risk of overdose, physicians should avoid prescribing opiates at the same time as benzodiazepines, such as anti-anxiety drugs Valium and Xanax. Doctors also should prescribe immediate-release opiates, rather than extended-relief tablets that are more likely to be abused.

Patients with acute pain, such as that caused by an injury, usually need prescription opiates for only three days. Prescribing the drugs for more than seven days is rarely necessary, he said.

“When opiates are used, start low and go slow,” Frieden said, meaning doctors should increase the dose of medication slowly and only when necessary. Doctors should check every three months to see if the benefits of opiates still outweigh the risks, the guidelines said.

Telling patients and doctors that opiates are rarely needed for more than a few days “will help prevent patients from getting addicted and help keep highly addictive drugs from accumulating in medicine chests,” Kolodny said.

If patients abuse opiates, doctors should help them get treatment supported by strong medical evidence, such as the therapies buprenorphine or methadone, which block or partly block the effects of opiates.

The CDC’s hard line on opiates is a major shift from conventional wisdom about relieving pain.

Although there has never been much evidence that opiates ease chronic pain, doctors were told for decades to consider pain as a “vital sign” that needed to be addressed, wrote addiction medicine specialist Yngvild Olsen, medical director of Reach Health Services in Baltimore, in an editorial in JAMA.

That advice to manage patients’ pain was accompanied by “misleading marketing of prescription opioids by manufacturers, who minimized the risks of misuse and addiction,” Olsen wrote. The pressure to manage pain led doctors to “miss or dismiss the presence of addiction in their patients,” she added.

Patients should ask questions if their doctors want to prescribe opiates, said Deborah Dowell, senior medical adviser in the division of unintentional injury prevention at the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Key questions to ask include: Is an opiate necessary? What are the risks? What are the benefits? How long should I take this? Are there alternatives? What we hope to accomplish by using an opiate? How will you know when we’ve met our goal?

Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass. who has used Senate rules to block the nomination of the Food and Drug Administration chief over the agency’s regulation of opioids, praised the CDC for releasing the guidance.

“Just as we need rules of the road to prevent injury and death, we need strong guidelines that can help prevent abuse of and addiction to opioid painkillers,” Markey said in a statement.

“While these are important measures we need prescribers to take, they are just guidelines and we need requirements to ensure all prescribers of opioid painkillers are educated in safe prescribing practices and the identification of possible substance use disorders,” Markey said.
