Detroit Mother Challenges Totalitarian Police State By Refusing To Give Her Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Medication
This mother should be applauded for wanting to take an alternative route given the fact that antipsychotic/psychiatric medications are so dangerous.  Not only has this been seen with Vioxx, where over 60,000 people died after the drug was cleared by the FDA, but it can also see in dozens of examples of data supplied by Dr. Breggin in his book Toxic Psychiatry, and by Dr. Brogan in her landmark book A Mind Of Your Own – The Truth About Depression.  Also, that doesn’t even begin to cover the health tyranny and police state issues also with this story, which are highly disturbing.

Sadly, this shouldn’t be surprising to anyone paying attention.  Cheap labor is par for the course when it comes to the establishment wanting to enrich itself at the expense of the poor and destitute, especially in third world countries.

84-Page Report Outlines 9 Ways To Beat Antibiotic Resistance
Excerpt: Obviously, if our current antibiotics are failing, we need to come up with new ones. That’s where “better incentives” come in. Pharmaceutical companies aren’t terribly interested in developing new antibiotics because they’re not lucrative. They don’t want to make drugs that will sit in a pharmacy until a major crisis comes along. Depression, obesity, hypertension, those are the money makers.

Here’s one that so many sent me I’ve simply got to blog about it, especially since we track the GMO issues from time to time on this website. In this case, this one is of particular interest to me, since a few years ago I “predicted” that what we were witnessing, and would witness in the future, is the creation of a kind of “IG Farben” of the GMO world, “I.G. Farbensanto”, I called it. Well, lo and behold, the German chemicals/genetics giant, Bayer – one of the original “small” corporations, along with BASF(Bayrischen Analin und Soda Fabrik), and Hoechst that went to make up the giant inter-war and wartime German chemicals cartel that became almost synonymous with the “Nazi military-industrial complex” – wants to buy Mon(ster)santo:

Why a Bayer-Monsanto merger would be bad news for anyone who farms — or eats

Of course, since this story broke about a week ago, Mon(ster)santo rejected Bayer’s initial offer, but the talks are ongoing. And in this context, recall only last year that Syngenta and Mon(ster)santo were in similar talks. The concern in the article is a concern we share here on this website, for the end result of all of this merger activity has been the reduction of biodiversity, as competitor’s seeds are taken off the market, allowing IG Farbensanto, like all cartels inevitably do, to drive up prices, and further consolidate control:

The consolidation of two big industry players may also limit farmer choice and bargaining power, with increasing seed prices expected to be passed on to the grocery aisles.

Massive $160 Billion Pharmaceutical Merger Stopped Cold

It’s Getting Harder For Big Pharma To Dodge Taxes

As Washington cracks down on pharmaceutical company greed, the largest ever health-care-acquisition between Allergan and Pfizer has been dissolved.

Pfizer will have to pay Allergan $400 million in fees for pulling out of the planned $160 billion merger, but the mega-pharmaceutical company will end up paying much more in avoided taxes.

Pfizer was targeting the merger with Allergan, which has a legal ‘home’ office in Dublin, Ireland, and was meant as a safe haven to avoid paying millions in taxes to the US government. Pfizer is based in New York, and would need a foreign address in order to get a lower tax rate.

Big Pharma has been fighting with the current administration to avoid paying taxes for some time now. As Forbes reports:

“Jack Lew, Obama’s secretary of the treasury, called Pfizer’s bluff, instituting new rules to make the move as difficult as possible.”

This is likely what made Pfizer call off the merger with Allergan, and why the stock price is suffering. Should the $160 billion-dollar deal have gone through, it would have amounted to the largest merger in history.

Lew is also uncovering a host of shady dealings between at least half a dozen pharmaceutical companies which will now be affected by the ‘un-done’ deal. For example – Allergan, who makes Botox, used to pay taxes with a base in Irvine, California, but then was purchased by a Dublin-based pharma company called Actavis for $66 billion. Then there were a few more exchanges and mergers between a New Jersey-based pharma company, a Swiss-based company, and finally Allergan’s eventual tax-base in Dublin, Ireland.
