Behind Purdue Pharma’s marketing of OxyContin

Beginning in the late 1990s there was a rapid increase in the use of prescription opioid drugs. By 2011 prescription opioids had become the most prescribed class of medications in the United States. Chemically related to heroin, and with similar effects, prescription opioids are highly addictive. As a result, between 1999 and 2017, almost 218,000 Americans died from overdoses related to these drugs. Purdue Pharma, a U.S. drug company, is seen by many observers as having been largely responsible for the rise of this situation.

After introducing OxyContin, a powerful opioid painkiller, in 1996, Purdue proceeded to market it aggressively as a drug that was supposedly less addictive, less subject to abuse, and less likely to cause narcotic side effects. A decade later, the company’s executives admitted in court proceedings they had marketed and promoted the drug with the intent to defraud or mislead. In 2007 in one of the largest pharmaceutical settlements in U.S. history, Purdue was fined $600 million. Compared to the $35 billion or so that OxyContin had reportedly helped net for the company, however, the fine was essentially small change.

How does your immune system work?

The immune system is a vast network of cells, tissues, and organs that coordinate your body’s defenses against any threats to your health. Without it, we’d be exposed to billions of bacteria, viruses, and toxins that could make something as minor as a paper cut or a seasonal cold fatal. So how does it work?

Dr Peter Gøtzsche exposes big pharma as organized crime

In this video, Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, a Danish medical researcher, describes how much of what the pharma industry does fulfills the criteria for organized crime under United States law. As he explains, pharma companies corrupt everyone they can and have bought every type of person, including even government ministers of health.

Ultra-processed foods make up a majority of Americans’ calorie intake

A study published in 2016 found that Americans are now getting over half their daily calories from ultra-processed food. Published in the BMJ Open journal, the study showed that 57.9 percent of people’s energy intake was coming from foods containing the kind of synthetic additive ingredients you wouldn’t want to cook with at home, like artificial flavors, dyes, sweeteners and preservatives. Such additives are common in soda, packaged snacks, breakfast cereals, instant soup and frozen meals.

World Cancer Day: You Have The Choice, Join Us And Do It NOW! – Dr Matthias Rath

The World Health Organization – the WHO – has proclaimed February 4 as World Cancer Day in order to promote worldwide awareness for one of the big unresolved problems of mankind – the epidemic of cancer. While every effort to create worldwide awareness about the need to end this epidemic should be applauded, there are serious doubts that the WHO is able to help accomplish this goal. Why?

Today, almost one third of the money financing the WHO’s operations comes from multinational pharmaceutical companies. As ‘return’ for this ‘investment’ into the WHO, the drug industry expects a huge ‘return on its investments’ from this world body. Thus, the WHO is no longer independent but its programs and activities – including ‘World Cancer Day’ – essentially turn into marketing campaigns for patented chemical drugs.

If you follow the WHO and its corporate sponsors, cancer will continue to spread in epidemic proportions. Despite all your good intentions, you may one day wake up and feel abused by the ‘Peter Pipers’ of the pharmaceutical drug lobby and a corrupted WHO. But if your goal is to help prevent cancers by science-based natural means – and one-day even end the cancer epidemic – we encourage you to inform yourself about our research and our decade-long battle for human health.

Contact us to see how we can work together – people, health professionals, activists – all committed to ending cancer and united in the promise not to stop until we reach this goal.

How Marketing — and Medicine — Spurred the Opioid Crisis

Aggressive marketing by the pharmaceutical industry in the 1990s resulted in a prescription drug crisis that has spiraled out of control. With over 2 million Americans now estimated to be dependent on opioids, overdose deaths from these highly addictive drugs are occurring at an average of one every ten minutes in the United States.
