Kurzbeschreibung

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AFTER HEART DISEASE AND CANCER. In his latest ground-breaking book, Peter C Gotzsche exposes the pharmaceutical industries and their charade of fraudulent behaviour, both in research and marketing where the morally repugnant disregard for human lives is the norm. He convincingly draws close comparisons with the tobacco conglomerates, revealing the extraordinary truth behind efforts to confuse and distract the public and their politicians. The book addresses, in evidence-based detail, an extraordinary system failure caused by widespread crime, corruption, bribery and impotent drug regulation in need of radical reforms. "The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life...Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors...the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe. The patients don't realise that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that hasn't been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry...If you don't think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death...If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control." FROM THE INTRODUCTION

Es ist meine Angewohnheit, an den Seiten eines Textes Striche zu machen, wenn mir etwas neu, bemerkenswert oder des Nachprüfens würdig erscheint. In diesem Buch gibt es von knapp 300 Seiten so gut wie keine ohne Striche. Das Lese-Erlebnis ist dem bei der Öffnung der Stasi-Akten vergleichbar; Manches wusste man, vieles ahnte man, und dennoch überwältigt das Ausmaß des nachgewiesenen Betrugs. Nach jeder halben Seite habe ich die Lektüre unterbrochen: Was hast Du da eben gelesen? Jeder Absatz ein Hammerschlag.

'Wieviele Patienten hat die Firma X mit dem Medikament Y getötet? In der Studie Z wurde das Risiko für thromboembolische Ereignisse untersucht, und es gab 1,5mal mehr Fälle von Herzinfarkt, plötzlichem Herztod oder Schlaganfall unter Y als unter Placebo je 100 behandelter Patienten. Mehr als 80 Millionen Menschen sind mit Y behandelt worden, und weil 10% dieser Ereignisse tödlich sind, ist es eine grobe Schätzung, dass Y 120.000 Menschen getötet hat.' (S. 160f) [2,3,4]

Es handelte sich um ein Schmerzmittel, für das es genügend ' in dieser Hinsicht ' ungefährliche und preiswerte Alternativen am Markt gab und gibt. Und die Firma X wusste von Anfang an, dass das Medikament Herzinfarkte verursachen wird. Die Zulassungsstudien wurden absichtlich so geplant, dass sie über diese Frage keine Auskunft geben konnten; Todesfälle in den Studien wurden bei den Publikationen unterschlagen usw. usf., die ganze Bandbreite an Manipulation (Kapitel 13: 'X, bei denen Patienten zuerst sterben'). Das ist kein Einzelfall, sondern nur ein Beispiel für Systemversagen.

even as a "insider" in medicine I'm shocked by the ruthlessness of some protagonists/ "systemic bias" in BIG Pharma.
The tone is calm and precise, seldom a bit too simple minded like " my granddad would have said: leave it alone" , but Peter has all reason to be outraged with his deep insights.
All in all a very readable book for persons, who know something about prescription drugs.

This is a highly polemic book on the undermining of medical science by the economic interests of pharmaceutical companies. It appears to be well-researched with very numerous references; some of which I have checked and found accurate. The book is definitely worth reading for anyone interested in medical drug therapy.

Straight talk about how harmful the pharma industry is to our health, or health care systems and misinforming our doctors. Very well presented and documented.

HASH(0x96060ab0) von 5 Sternen Big pharma and the Mafia 23. Oktober 2013
Von Mauricio J. Solorzano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
One of the biggest canaries at the moment is Peter Gøtzsche, none other than the head of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, the Scandanavian arm of the Cochrane Collaboration, an independent research and information centre committed to preparing, maintaining, and disseminating reviews of the various treatments of mainstream medicine and examining whether they have adequate evidence of safety and effectiveness. Cochrane was the first group of individuals to champion the notion of`evidence-based' medicine - that is, medicine shouldn't be used unless there's evidence that the stuff works.

Gøtzsche is a guy after my own heart. When asked to speak at a Danish Society for Rheumatology event, called `Collaboration with the drug industry. Is it THAT harmful?' Peter's opening gambit was to highlight the fact that Pfizer, one of the meeting's sponsors, had been fined $2.3 billion in the US for promoting off-label use of four drugs, while Merck, the sponsor the year before, had been responsible for the deaths of thousands due to deceptive information about its arthritis drug.

Gøtzsche's latest book, entitled Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare' (Radcliffe Publishing Ltd) pulls even fewer punches. The book essentially makes the point that the drugs industry uses virtually every tactic used by the mob to sell its products.

He even quotes a former vice-president of Pfizer as saying, `It is scary how many similarities there are between his industry and the mob. The mob makes obscene amounts of money, as does this industry. The side effects of organized crime are killings and deaths, and the sides effects are the same in this industry. The mob bribes politicians and others, and so does the drug industry.'

Perhaps even more extraordinary than the careful case made by this blunt soothsayer is the fact that Richard Smith, the former editor of the British Medical Journal, agreed to write the book's foreword. In the book, Smith points out, the characteristics of organized crime include extortion, fraud, federal drug offences, bribery, embezzlement, obstruction of justice obstruction of law enforcement, tampering with witnesses and political corruption.

"Peter produces evidence, most of it detailed, to support his case that pharmaceutical companies are guilty of most of these offenses," says Smith. Indeed, most of the billions paid out as fines by the drugs industry for flouting the law as thought of as `the cost of doing business.'

"As an epidemiologist with very high numerical literacy and a passion for details, so that he is a world leader in critiquing clinical studies, Peter is here on very solid ground," says Smith. "He shows too how the industry has bought doctors, academics, journals, professional and patient organizations, university departments, journalists, regulators and politicians. These are the methods of the mob."

This is only the latest canary from among Establishment medicine to blow the whistle on Big Pharma. Marcia Ancell, the editor for two decades at the new England Journal of Medicine, recently published her own book: The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It.

All of the major medical journals, from the BMJ and the Lancet, to the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New Eng Journal, have revealed the scale of the problem - that correctly prescribed drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, that drug companies massage and make up data.

Medicine should be a gift to us all rather than a money-making scheme for the pharmaceutical industry, as it now largely is.

With that in mind, we suggest that the following be implemented.

An independent funding body should be created to finance all medical trials, whether of drugs, other forms of therapy or alternatives
Doctors should be required to spend one year of their five-year training learning about nutrition, alternative modalities and new possibilities
Drug-company influence should be entirely excluded from medicine, from training colleges and from trips abroad
Doctors should be rewarded for adopting non-drug therapies, thus saving the nation at least one small part of the £160 billion spent every year on drugs by the NHS.
But most of all, we need to open up the entire field of cancer--our understanding of what it is, what causes it and how it could be treated--while taking on board new understandings of the body and the impact upon it of the environment, stress and emotions. As a researcher once commented when asked whether research into alternative healing should continue, "We can't find the answers if we don't keep asking the questions."

We will shortly announce our campaign for freeing medicine from the pharmaceutical industry, so that doctors and patients alike are free to use an entire toolkit of modalities to get and stay well.

HASH(0x9605ae88) von 5 Sternen Excellent! 14. November 2013
Von Ralf Sundberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Professor Gotzche tells the story about Big Pharma with numerous examples from his vast experience in Clinical Pharmacology and in scrutinizing scientific papers. It is a must-read for medical students, doctor's and it should be consulted whenever your doctor suggest you a pill rather than lifestyle changes.

HASH(0x96072090) von 5 Sternen It's so much worse than you think 4. Oktober 2013
Von Stuart Sutton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having all the misdeeds compiled here, with a sense of the dramatic worsening of the situation over time, is discouraging and yet so important to understand. Extremely well documented with appropriate footnotes and references. The title is certainly inflammatory (comparing pharmaceutical industry to the mob) and is really only briefly dealt with to justify the eye catching title.
All the hiding of research data, obscuring of facts, payments to and intimidation of FDA officials and others around the world, industry ghost writers of articles in major medical journals...But, hey, it's about making money for stock holders, right? So, it's all good!

HASH(0x96072228) von 5 Sternen A must read 18. Dezember 2013
Von Barbara Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a meticulously researched, hard-hitting indictment of Big Pharma. Dr. Gotzsche exposes the sordid underbelly of current clinical research, which is then used to justify treating millions of people with drugs of little to no benefit but manifest harms. With the recent finding by the US government that Pfizer is officially guilty of violating the RICO (racketerring influenced corrupt organization) Act, the author's conflation of Big Pharma and organized crime is affirmed and vindicated.

My only disappointment was that there was little on the corruption of professional medical associations like the American Heart Association, etc. by Big Pharma.

I recommend this book without reservation.
