Big Pharma: Pulling Back the Curtain on the Business of Healthcare

January 16 at 9:00 am - 10:00 am

|Recurring Program (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Wednesday, repeating until February 27, 2019

In this program we will pull back the curtain and expose how Big Pharma as well as other medical providers use fear and hyperbole to promote their drugs and a myriad of treatments. What our five years of research uncovered will amaze you! Topics include: Conflicts of interest, deceptive articles in prestigious medical journals, “me too” drugs, fear based media commercials, drugs in search of an illness, drug promotion meetings disguised as continuing education programs, minimizing reports of drug adverse events, manipulating doctors with gifts to promote drugs. We will examine how too many drugs, body scans and over diagnoses can actually cause more harm than good.
