The pharma mafia: a dangerous network!

 

Do you have time and like reading thrillers? We have one and it is even real!

The Pharma mafia!

We are on the trail of a new drug scandal, but it will come tomorrow, so long as you read this thriller.

And you should not be surprised that many websites that specialize in natural remedies, are no longer displayed by Google.

You know the mafia, organized crime accounts for about $ 2 trillion a year. Almost as much do the pharmaceutical companies. The 30 largest pharmaceutical companies in the world alone make a turnover of 600 billion dollars.

As the “Godfather” Don Vito Corleone said: “I make him an offer that he can not refuse.” The best thing that could happen to the big phamaceutical companies is the collaboration with the WHO: a dangerous network!

Now you should also know that the WHO is privately sponsored. That means: one buys the shares of the largest pharmaceutical companies and then the WHO recommends exactly the drugs and so the shares rise. So these companies make billions of euros profit and profit again the sponsors.

You still think it’s about your health? No, it’s about your illnesses and you can not get well either.

You would never have thought that healthy people are simply told they have cancer to make money on chemotherapy, right?

By the way, the biggest beneficiary of breast cancer is Pfizer.

And Pfizer is the daughter of Monsanto. Oops, did not you know?

Yes! Bayer has bought Monsanto, but also has a pharma itself and is also with many scandals on the pillory. Including the contraceptive pill!

Until the 1970s, the pharmaceutical industry made drugs to cure diseases. Since then, she has been suspected – at least in part – that she is also creating illnesses to sell medicines.

But you certainly did not know that Nestlé is also active in the pharmaceutical sector, because in 2012, Nestlé took over the baby food division of Pfizer for $ 12 billion. Emmanuel Macron has partnered with Nestlé to buy Pfizer Nutrition and this deal made him a millionaire.

Now he is president of France, where Sanofi is also at home, the largest pharmaceutical company in Europe and with about 34 billion sales worldwide No. 5. Alone with human vaccines makes the group 13.5% of its turnover, also thanks to the WHO.

The pharmaceutical industry should give us a healthy life. But the pharmaceutical industry is even supposed to kill more people than the mafia.

Each tablet is less about health than business.

A proven cancer drug is re-launched under its new name as a remedy for multiple sclerosis – for forty times the price! Here is tricked to the detriment of all patients!

You will be amazed when you look at the giants of the pharmaceutical industry and their interconnections:

As written, Nestlé bought its baby foods division from Pfizer. The number 2 in the world, Novartis, had a baby food division, namely Gerber.
In April 2007, Gerber went to Nestlé for $ 5.5 billion. As early as December 2006, the “Medical Nutrition” division was donated to Nestlé for around CHF 3 billion.

According to statistics, Pfizer, Novartis and Roche are the three largest pharmaceutical companies worldwide by sales in 2016

Often it helps if you also have good friends, but they are not in vain, and so is also like lubricated with dollars.
In the US, the pharmaceutical industry is number one, spending millions of euros on lobbying. The top donors in 2014 were in the industry: Pfizer Inc. (over $ 1.5 million) in the EU too, and  Pfizer is happy to pay for lobbying.

One of the pharmaceutical industry’s policy objectives is a faster approval process for drugs and products.

The Brussels-based EFPIA represents the pharmaceutical companies in the EU.
The EFPIA is the representative body of the European pharmaceutical industry. With direct membership of 33 national associations and 39 leading pharmaceutical companies, EFPIA represents 1,900 companies dedicated to the research and development of new medicines.

Together with three other organizations, EFPIA has founded the European Stakeholder Model (ESM) Partners Group, which represents a total of 2,800 European pharmaceutical companies. – That means – all under one roof – a huge lobby octopus. There can be no talk of trust here!

WHO -civilization“A cured patient is a lost customer”

 

President of the pharmaceutical lobby group EFPIA is Joe Jimenez of Novartis, number 2 in the world’s largest pharma. The Bill Gates Foundation, which finances WHO (!!!), is headed by Andrin OswalDirector of Life Science Partnerships, formerly with Novartis, but also other directors come from Novartis.

On the EU’s official transparency list, the number of pharmaceutical companies donating has risen sharply over the past three years from 23 to 40 companies.
At the front stands Bayer, who spent around 2.46 million euros on lobbying in 2014.
Behind them are Glaxosmithkline, Novartis and AstraZeneca, each with around two million euros.
The increased lobbying work of the pharmaceutical industry has a tangible background: many patents expire in the coming years. By 2019, losses of up to 55 billion euros are threatening.

To this end, Novartis launched a collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for vaccines in South Africa in 2013. There are new companies in Brazil.

My comment: In 2017, even the World Health Organization (WHO) raised the alarm: worldwide, ten percent of drugs are counterfeits with too little active ingredient or toxic contaminants. Today, only about 20 percent of people have confidence in the pharmaceutical industry.

But it is not just the counterfeit drugs that swim undetected in international wholesaling that are the problem: Practically for all major international pharmaceutical monopolies, one can prove that they have falsified studies, obscured side effects, have freely invented new “diseases” and applications. With a view: that’s how the market prices push up.

90 percent of research funding is concentrated in only 10 percent of the world’s diseases, because only these “profitable markets” exist. Millions of people are dying from malaria, tuberculosis or sleeping sickness.

Today, 90 percent of world pharmaceutical production is concentrated in the newly imperialist countries of India and China. With the result that there were also large pharmaceutical companies. In the meantime, they are pushing themselves for a global market position and are investing globally in pharmaceutical and agribusiness companies. But 65 percent of Indians have no access to essential medicines.

The powerful cartel of the pharmaceutical industry has drug production in its claws.

Chickens used by McDonald’s are among the most abused animals on the planet. Bred to grow so large so fast, they often can’t walk without pain. Hundreds of brands—including Burger King, Starbucks, Subway, Jack in the Box, and Denny’s—have committed to banning the cruelest practices inflicted on chickens. McDonald’s has not.

Let McDonald’s know that animal abuse is bad business.

Japan is about to resume catching whales for profit in defiance of international criticism.

Japan is about to resume catching whales for profit, in defiance of international criticism.

Its last commercial hunt was in 1986, but Japan has never really stopped whaling – it has been conducting instead what it says are research missions which catch hundreds of whales annually.

But Japan has now withdrawn from the International Whaling Commission (IWC), which banned hunting, and will send out its first whaling fleet this July.

Isn’t whaling banned?

Whales were brought to the brink of extinction by hunting in the 19th and early 20th Century. By the 1960s, more efficient catch methods and giant factory ships made it obvious that whale hunting could not go unchecked.

So in 1986, all IWC members agreed to a hunting moratorium to allow whale numbers to recover.

Conservationists were happy but whaling countries – like Japan, Norway and Iceland – assumed the moratorium would be temporary until everyone could agree on sustainable quotas. Instead it became a quasi-permanent ban.

But there were exceptions in the moratorium, allowing indigenous groups to carry out subsistence whaling, and allowing whaling for scientific purposes.

Tokyo put that latter clause to full use. Since 1987, Japan has killed between 200 and 1,200 whales each year, saying this was to monitor stocks to establish sustainable quotas.

Critics say this was just a cover so Japan could hunt whales for food, as the meat from the whales killed for research usually did end up for sale.

Why is Japan restarting whaling now?

In 2018 Japan tried one last time to convince the IWC to allow whaling under sustainable quotas, but failed. So it left the body, effective July 2019.

The fisheries ministry told the BBC it would start issuing permits for hunts on 1 July. “But the starting date is subject to decisions of the whalers, weather and other conditions.”

Whaling is a small industry in Japan, employing around 300 people. About five vessels are expected to set sail in July.

The whaling “will be conducted within Japan’s territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone”, Hideki Moronuki of the Japanese fishing ministry told the BBC.

This means Japan will no longer hunt whales in the Antarctic, as it did under its earlier research programme.

Like other whaling nations, Japan argues hunting and eating whales are part of its culture. A number of coastal communities in Japan have indeed hunted whales for centuries but consumption only became widespread after World War Two when other food was scarce.

From the late 1940s to the mid-1960s whale was the single biggest source of meat in Japan but since become a niche product again.

Is Japan’s plan legal?

“Within its 12 mile coastal waters, Japan can do whatever it wants,” Donald Rothwell, professor of international law at the Australian National University, told the BBC.

Beyond that, in its 200 miles (322km) exclusive economic zone and of course the high seas, the country is bound by the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Article 65 of said convention mandates that “states shall co-operate with a view to the conservation” of whales and “shall in particular work through the appropriate international organizations for their conservation, management and study”.

Having left the IWC, Japan is no longer part of any such international organisation and that “directly raises questions issues whether or not Japan would be consistent with the convention,” Mr Rothwell explains.

It’s not clear if any country would try to bring Japan to court over this – in its defence, Japan might argue that for years it did try to co-operate within the IWC without any results.

Even if there were to be a ruling or injunction against Tokyo, there’d be no mechanism to enforce it.

What environmental impact will Japan’s whaling have?

The ministry will allow for the hunting of three species: minke, Bryde’s and sei whales.

According to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, minke and Bryde’s whale are not endangered. Sei whale are classified as endangered but their numbers are increasing.

So in terms of numbers, Japan’s commercial whaling will have only a minimal impact.

In fact, some defenders of whaling argue that whale meat has a smaller carbon footprint than pork or beef.

Conservationist groups like Greenpeace or Sea Shepherd remain critical of Japan’s resumption of whaling but say there are no concrete plans yet to tackle the country over this.

Japan “is out of step with the international community”, Sam Annesley, executive director at Greenpeace Japan, said in a statement, urging Tokyo to abandon its hunting plans.

Besides the question of stock sustainability, a key argument against the hunt is that harpooning whales leads to a slow and painful death.

Modern hunting methods, though, aim to kill whales instantly and it backers say the near-global anti-whaling sentiment is deeply hypocritical., compared to, say, industrial meat production.

But even if Japan does defy the criticism and stick with whaling, there’s a good chance the contentious issue will gradually die down by itself.

Japanese demand for whale meat has long been on the decline and the industry is already being subsidised. Eventually, commercial whaling might be undone by simple arithmetic.
