AstraZeneca - Seroquel - Big Pharma's Evil Ways - BBC does great job of covering a hugely important, and complex story


AstraZeneca - Seroquel - Big Pharma & Their Evil Ways - The BBC does great job of covering a hugely important, and complex story.

A hat tip goes out to pharmagossip for bringing this radio show to my attention.

This show is well worth the time spent listening.

As for those out there who have not followed along with events surrounding Big Pharma's crimes against humanity and society. This program should give you a glimpse into a vary dark and seedy industry making 100's of billions of dollars on the avoidable suffering, damage, and even death of patients all in the name of corporate profits and greed.





For further interesting reading on this topic, I have added this recent article @ Pharmalot where the AZ executive used in the BBC radio program, and the authors of a new abstract are commenting.

A lot of useful information in those links, thanks. I feel that it might even be too much for me to “digest” in just one week.

Hi Stan,
You have a very interesting informative site here. I found your link to the story of Judi Chamberlin, very informative.

Within the last 3 years (due to the removal of a brain tumor 13 years ago) my adult son developed a mental illness. As I can no longer keep him at home with me, I soon learned that their really is no advocacy out there for the mentally disabled.

AstraZeneca is evil in ways that people will not acknowledge. When people fully understand they are going to be scared to death. I was on seroquel(and zyprexa).The detox was like something out of a movie. The mental meanderings were kept in check by therapy.

They'd better be seriously careful of how much profit they are willing to get for permanently messing with peoples minds.

There is a generation coming of kids that are about to be the "rulers" of this world. Think about this bunch on YEARS of seroquel and zyprexa.

Big Pharma has been very successful marketing psychiatric drugs over the last few decades. I do think these drugs help some people, and I took an antidepressant for many years for OCD. For people with serious psychiatric disorders like bipolar, OCD, and schizophrenia, there aren't many viable alternatives. It's time for a scientific leap, from the flawed biochemical model that led to the rise of Big Pharma, to a new electromagnetic paradigm. Check out my new educational video explaining the connection between magnetoreception and psychiatric disorders:
