I suppose that if there’s any large industry supporting Tobacco Control, it’s probably Big Pharma.
In the first place, as far as I can see, Big Pharma is trying to convert the tobacco plant into a pharmaceutical product. If they succeed, you’ll get your nicotine fix in tablets which will cost 50 times more than cigarettes, and prescribed by the medical profession.
They probably want to do the same with alcohol and food. And that’s why the Pharma-funded healthists have extended beyond demonising tobacco, and started demonising alcohol and food as well. You demonise your competition, and tell their consumers that their products are killing them, and at the same time you start offering your own ‘safe’ product. Cigarettes might be killing smokers, but pharmaceutically-produced NRT (which contains nicotine) is ‘perfectly safe’.
It’s why they hate e-cigs. E-cigs are pretty much nicotine delivery systems. They’re nicotine inhalers. They’re as safe as NRT. But Big Pharma doesn’t manufacture them. The competition does. So e-cigs are now being demonised just like cigarettes.
They’re doing the same with herbs and natural medicines as well. Ask Rose.
And some of Big Pharma’s products, like Chantix/Varenicline, actually kill smokers. It’s why I have Pfuck Pfizer pic in the right margin. Because they can make smokers get so depressed that they commit suicide. (Maybe I ought to add such smokers into the Smokers’ Graveyard, as casualties not so much of smoking bans, but of smoking cessation products which some smokers try to use in response to smoking bans)
Over the past week, I’ve been reading more bad news about other pharma products: vaccines. I’m generally sceptical about anti-vax, because I had lots of vaccinations during the 1950s and 1960s when I was travelling all over the world to places where typhoid and cholera were endemic. Getting a TAB+C injection was an annual ordeal back then. But it did no long-term harm. But now I’m wondering whether vaccines were well-regulated back then, in ways that maybe they aren’t now.
“The pharmaceutical industry is so powerful,” he explained. “They give $5.4 billion a year to the media. They’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there is no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.“
Asked how things could get this bad, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explained that in 1989 Congress granted Big Pharma “blanket legal immunity” when it comes to vaccines.
Big Pharma became a law unto themselves. They can put toxic ingredients in your vaccines, they can seriously injure your child – but you cannot sue them.
“What you have to understand is that the vaccine regimen changed dramatically around 1989. The reason it changed, Tucker, is that Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money, did something they have never done for any other industry – they gave blanket legal immunity to all the vaccine companies.
“So that no matter how sloppy the line protocols, no matter how absent the quality control, no matter how toxic the ingredients, or egregious the injury to your child, you cannot sue them.
“So there’s no depositions, there’s no discovery, there’s no class action suits. All of a sudden vaccines became enormously profitable.”
The enormous profits in the unregulated industry meant Big Pharma companies raced each other to produce new and unnecessary vaccines to pump into newborn children – often dozens at a time.
“It became a gold rush for the pharmaceutical industry to add new vaccines to the spectrum.”
And if that wasn’t bad enough news, I came across this bombshell on Facebook yesterday.
According to recent statistics, approximately 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their lifetimes. This saddening reality is made worse when it is acknowledged that modern methods of ‘treating’ the disease are often ineffective and only make the symptoms of the disease worse. In fact, according to one Berkeley doctor, chemotherapy doesn’t work 97% of the time.
In the eye-opening video above, Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former professor of medical physics and physiology at the University of California, Berkeley, discusses how ‘leading edge’ cancer treatment is a sham.
He has personally studied the life expectancy of patients for more than 25 years and has come to the conclusion that chemotherapy does more harm than good. The bone-chilling realization prompted Dr. Jones to speak out against the billion-dollar cancer industry.
“People who refused chemotherapy treatment live on average 12 and a half years longer than people who are undergoing chemotherapy,” said Dr. Jones of his study, which was published in the New York Academy of Science.
These are just two reports. But both paint a picture of Big Pharma that is much, much worse than anything I thought about the industry – and I didn’t have a high opinion of them anyway, as I set out above.
