The Truth about Pharmaceutical Company and FDA: ความจริงของบริษัทยาและคณะกรรมการอาหารและยา ตอน 3
Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Viagra, Lipitor, Cialis, Nexium




North America Selling Sickness explores the unhealthy relationships between society, medical science and the pharmaceutical industry as they promote their new miracle cures -- selling not just drugs but also the latest diseases that go with them. Drug manufacturers today fund aggressive marketing campaigns designed to create public awareness of previously unknown diseases, or known by less dramatic names. Shyness thus becomes branded as "Social Anxiety Disorder," constant worry becomes "Generalized Anxiety Disorder," and premenstrual tension is now "Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder."

The sale of SSRI anti-depressant medications used to treat these and other diseases, such as Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac, has become an annual $20 billion market.

Selling Sickness features commentary from paid medical consultants to the drug companies, patients, researchers, patient advocates, advertisers, attorneys, and psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a critic of the pharmaceutical industry.

The film also examines the deceptive use of clinical trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies, the highly addictive nature and many adverse side effects (like suicidal impulses among adolescent patients) of popular SSRI anti-depressants. At an FDA hearing in Washington, D.C., the testimony of parents who have lost their children to suicide starkly emphasizes the need for greater regulation of these heavily promoted and prescribed anti-depressants.




In 1976, Henry Gadson, the CEO of Merck, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the US, was interviewed by Fortune magazine. During the interview, Gadson complained of having to limit his market to sick people. His dream, he said was to be able to "sell to everyone" and make Merck more like "Wrigley" the chewing gum company. Now thirty years later, as prescription and designer drugs become ever more prevalent, Mr.Gadson's dream may have come true. In the four-hour special Warning: Before You Take This Pill, Link TV will explore the question of whether we've become smarter patients or are just plain worried sick.







Selling Sickness explores the unhealthy relationships between society, medical science and the pharmaceutical industry as they promote their new miracle cures -- selling not just drugs but also the latest diseases that go with them.

It examines the growing global controversy around SSRI antidepressant, such as Paxil, Zoloft, and Prozac, and also takes a personal look at two families who suffer the tragic consequences of society's rush to find a pill for every ill.

is this aggressive drug marketing not just changing humans but the human condition as well?

Money Talks: Profits before Patient Safety uses first hand testimony from doctors and drug reps to give a rare perspective on the questionable marketing tactics of the pharmaceutical industry. Engaging and informative, the film offers a reasoned approach to the subject matter, with guests like Dr. John Abramson, author of Overdosed America, and Prescription Access Litigation Project Director, Alex Sugerman-Brozan.

ขอต้อนรับเข้าสู่การค้นหาความจริงจากในชีวิตมนุษย์ที่เกิดมา เคยถามตัวเองหรือไม่ว่าเราเกิดมาทำไม? เกิดมาเพื่ออะไร? ตายแล้วไปไหน?

ข่าวดี!! ที่นี่มีคำตอบ ขอให้อ่านด้วยใจเปิดกว้าง และพินิจพิจารณา อ่านช้าๆ แล้วคุณจะพบคำตอบของชีวิตที่คุณค้นหามานาน

Inner peace is built by discovering your creator, and your purpose.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!!

You are created as a Soul, and placed into this physical body.

Your body is just a "Tool".

A tool, for your soul to carry out this temporary physical section, of your Eternal Life

A tool which should be guided into investing and feeding the soul.

But all people remain to do, is invest in the body rather than the SOUL!!

The Truth Set You Free!!!

May the Love and the Truth of the True God fill your Heart!!

Note: Please share your ideas or commend politely and wisely. ANY COMMENT POSTED NEEDS TO BE BASED ON INTELLIGENCE, LOGIC, AND REASONING; THOSE BASED MERELY ON RELIGIOUS BELIEF(S) AND/OR EMOTIONS WILL NOT SUFFICE.
