Why isn’t this headline news? GlaxoSmithKline will have to cough up US$3bn to settle misdemeanour criminal charges in the largest case of healthcare fraud in US history.

The Guardian reported:

GSK targeted the antidepressant Paxil at patients under age 18 when it was approved only for adults, and promoted the drug Wellbutrin for uses it was not approved for, including weight loss and treatment of sexual dysfunction, according to a US justice department investigation.

and in a yet another case:

In a third case, GSK failed to give the US Food and Drug Administration safety data about its diabetes drug Avandia, in violation of US law, prosecutors said.

Shows you, you can’t have blind faith in these fancy drugs.

  1. Meanwhile in Malaysia, Ministry of Health chose to purchase medicine for its hospitals via ali-baba practice through its cronied agents instead of buying direct from the pharmaceutical already setting up offices in Malaysia?

    … Tiong Lie, care to explain why?

    • Such wastage is what Pakatan could have saved to provide better assistance to the truely poor rakyat.

  2. Conventional medicine is a medical system bent on perpetuating the vested intrests of the pharmaceutical industry and drug companies.

    There are 3 branches of science, i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

    Why should only one branch of Science(Chemistry) and the use of chemical agents/drugs dominate the therapeutics of chronic diseases? Because it guarantees the profits of the drug companies.

    Safer therapies for chronic diseases based on the other 2 branches of Science – Physics(Quantum Physics, Mind-Body healing, Hypnosis, Acupuncture, Homeopathy) and Biology(Herbs, plants, diet, exercise) should be given a chance.

  3. How do you know that your sugar intake is not enough? You will always feel thirsty, urine frequency go up, a lot of stomach gas, no sexual appetite, no desire to do anything except surfing the net or play video game and lazy.

  4. Western medicine has 2 type of doctors; 1 is normal doctor another is sport doctor. Normal doctor always tell you that you have too much caloric , don’t eat any more. The sport doctor always tell that you always have not enough caloric and keep asking you to eat, eat ,eat. I prefer sport doctor, do you know why? The sport players not only performed well on the fields, they always good on the bed as well. Look at Tiger wood, Rodney, …. Ask yourself when and why you suddenly become so decent… No more energy, how to make love. When your marry start to have problem it is most like one or both partner no more has enough energy. Get yourself a cup of hot chocolate drink each morning, your marry will be saved. Ong Eu Sooon is talking non-sense again!

  5. people also believe in diabetic which is 1 of the greatest medical hoax human ever seen. A type 1 diabetic patient can’t digest sugar because there is no insulin discharged. The patient will have high blood sugar. Where is the sugar come from? When your stomach can’t digest sugar or digest not enough sugar, your big intestine will help adsorbing sugar from other source namely your s… to keep you alive. if you reduce your blood sugar you end up defeating your body by deprive it the sugar it need.
    If you suffer from injury, your blood sugar automatically go up, your body need sugar or energy to help cure your wound. Ever wonder why doctor always refuse to check your blood sugar level if you have a wound?
    If you are type 2 diabetic patient, it mean your insulin discharge still ok, just you did not have enough sugar intake. If you reduce your blood sugar, you make thing bad, you will end up amputate your leg until you have nothing to cut.
    If you take enough sugar, your blood sugar level will go down automatically. If you don’t have enough , it mean you have not enough caloric of energy. If you don’t have energy, can you make love? If you can’t sleep, just make love and you will sleep after that. If you can’t make love, you end up surfing the net! How to have baby if you always surfing the net and ignore your wife? Ask you to use condom is like asking you to change your religious belief. Frighten you with wrong info, you end up surfing the net that is the best way design to reduce world population.
    When you don’t have enough sugar you thought you have sexual dysfunction and you go to buy viagra that cost you RM70 per pill. This mean each time you make love you pay RM70. Why married if you need to pay for sex? Just buy yourself a cup of hot chocolate drink each morning and you don’t need to worry about sugar intake, sexual dysfunction, insomnia and costly sex….

  6. “…the drug Wellbutrin for uses it was not approved for, including…treatment of sexual dysfunction, according to a US justice department investigation.”

    Wellbutt. Quite funny, don’t you think? Maybe our Chinese Sex Legend offered himself as a guinea pig in an early trial test.

  7. I think the mother of all pharma frauds in this world are chemo drugs sanctioned by oncologists to treat cancers without knowing their real causes.

    • there is no such thing called cancer. 2 ladies and 1 man who came to seek treatment from me withhold from me the info that they suffered from cancer. 1 month after treatment doctors confirmed that their cancel gone totally. I am the last person to know when i was told by my other patients recommended by the 3 cancer patients. When western doctor tell you that you suffer from cancer, it mean that he has no cure. Why continue the treatment and with exorbitant medication fee and your life. When a traditional alternative treatment doctor tell you that he know how to treat cancer, just ask him where he learn about cancer and look at his age. if he is older the more likely he just lie thru’ his teeth.
      Cancer is a word foreign to alternative treatment practitioner, it is not in their syllabus. When patient ask me about my ability to treatment cancer, i only reply in this way: If i know how to treat cancer, i already famous and rich beyond your imagination.

  8. Big name, big brand, big corporation. And some of its products trusted by mothers.
    And after the fact (of their silly mistakes), after making excessive profits to please its shareholders & its CEO, CFO, directors, only then did the CSR (corporate social-crocodile responsibility) stunts.
    Who are the guinea pigs cum fools?
    In this materialistic, Forbes’ measure of corporate / individual success & Donald Ducky Trumpeter’s ‘greed is good’ induced principles of cari-makan, nothing comes close to these business crimes against humanity. Not even Attila the Han can match their … instinct in the name of corporate-managed science for the progress of mankind.
    Next we will see human-animal hybrids that can reproduce by themselves. Frankenstein vote bank, any political party?

  9. Some of these medicines, as residues in meat (due to overuse in livestock) and in water (due to dumping old stock) do not get destroyed even after heating. Especially with the overuse of psychotropic drugs (due to the widening of psychological criteria), guess what all this stuff is doing to us and our symbiotic bacteria.
