Health experts’ call for inquiry into excess prescription drug deaths

aseem-malhotra

We’re amid a major public health crisis, with a worsening epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes all around the world. Poor diet and lifestyle habits are often blamed. But not enough light has been shed on how Big Pharma (and Big Food) may be fuelling the crisis.

Fortunately, top European health experts are now attempting to shine a light on the industry’s deception of the public:

Poor quality research, influenced by vested interests has resulted in an epidemic of misinformed doctors and misinformed patients leading to poor clinical outcomes and the unwitting practice of unethical medicine due to the lack of transparency in the prescription of medications, which are now estimated to be the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

    One of the realities of life is that we really don't "know" much. We believe much. When I say I know the Earth revolves around the Sun, it's because this is what I've been told and I believe it. I'm not an astrophysicist that's done the observations and the math that would allow me to state: "I know". Most of the time this doesn't matter, but what if the experts we depend on; Doctors, Dietitians, Nurses...are in the same boat? They don't know, they just believe what they've been told. Their belief might be somewhat more informed than the layman's, but in this age of specialization, how much more? Now, what if what they've been told, is wrong?
