As the pharmaceutical industry invests more and more in the development of new drugs, true breakthroughs are few and far between. Into the breach comes a panoply of product-line extensions and me-too drugs aimed at grabbing market share. The industry plows its high profits back into research, but invests an equal or greater sum in flogging its products in every imaginable venue. Research studies are designed to support marketing claims. Many doctors all over the country get their first information about new drugs from a salesperson. And, increasingly, prescription drugs are pitched to consumers on TV and the internet with images of hope, terror, or chic. Evidence-based practice guidelines, which endeavor to get the right medicines to those who will benefit most, can't be heard over the din. Having created an unprecedented number of "megabrands"—blockbuster drugs with huge sales—and undergone an extraordinary wave of consolidation, some drug companies now find themselves in a precarious position. Patents are expiring on flagship products. In order to sustain the growth Wall Street has come to expect, these companies must produce billions of dollars worth of new revenue—fast. But can Americans continue to bankroll Operation Grow Big Pharma? Must we swallow the bad with the good?

Die Medizin will uns Menschen gesund erhalten und Krankheiten heilen? Das Gegenteil ist der Fall: Das von der Pharmaindustrie beherrschte Gesundheitswesen verfolgt rein ihre Profitinteressen und setzt dabei die Gesundheit der Verbraucher aufs Spiel. Mikkel Borch-Jakobsen hat in diesem Buch zwölf hochkarätige internationale Autoren zusammengebracht, die sich jeder als „Whistleblower“ einen Namen gemacht haben: Wissenschaftler, Pharma-Spezialisten und Journalisten. Sie zeigen u.a., wie psychische Erkrankungen zu einem riesigen Geschäftsfeld gemacht und Grenzwerte von Cholesterin manipuliert werden, Alltagsstress pathologisiert und Werbung für Medikamente als neutrale Information getarnt wird. Ein beunruhigendes und brisantes Aufdeckerbuch, das zeigt, was alles getan wird, um mehr Medikamente zu verkaufen – für die Gewinnmaximierung der Pharmaindustrie, und zum Schaden von uns allen.

WHY RIFE MACHINES? Lyme Disease is caused by Borrelia Burgdorferi, a spirochete bacteria similar to the bacteria that causes Syphilis . Lyme Disease is known as the “Great Imitator” – It can masquerade as Attention Deficit Disorder , Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder , Alzheimer's Disease , Schizophrenia , Depression , Multiple Sclerosis , arthritis , heart conditions, and more. The July, 2004 issue of Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients indicates that Lyme Disease is thought to be the fastest spreading infectious disease in the world, with more than 200,000 new cases per year in the United States alone. Lyme Disease tests are notoriously inaccurate, leading to rampant under-diagnosis of the disease (See Appendix A ). But even the people who are lucky enough to receive an accurate diagnosis do not always respond to antibiotic therapy. Aggressive antibiotic therapy, applied by a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD), sometimes fails to provide a cure. Many patients take antibiotics for years, often in combinations of two or three drugs simultaneously – yet in some cases the infection becomes chronic anyway, and numerous Lyme Disease sufferers end up staying sick, losing their jobs, getting dropped by insurance companies, going broke, and losing hope. These monumentally discouraging obstacles facing Lyme Disease sufferers have led many of them to explore the rife machine treatment option, a promising electromagnetic therapy which often works after antibiotics fail.

Since its introduction in 1998, Viagra has launched a new kind of sexual revolution. Quickly becoming one of the most sought after drugs in history, the little blue pill created a sea change within the pharmaceutical industry—from how drugs could be marketed to the types of drugs put into development—as well as the culture at large. Impotency is no longer an embarrassing male secret; now it is called “erectile dysfunction,” and is simply something to “ask your doctor” about. And over 16 million men have. The Rise of Viagra is the first book to detail the history and the vast social implications of the Viagra phenomenon. Meika Loe argues that Viagra has changed what qualifies as normal sex in America. In the quick-fix, pill-for-everything culture that Viagra helped to create, erections can now be had by popping a pill, making sex on demand, regardless of age or infirmity, and, potentially, for the rest of one's life. Drawing on interviews with men who take the drug, their wives, doctors and pharmacists as well as scientists and researchers in the field, this fascinating account provides an intimate history of the drug's effect on America. Loe also examines the quest for the female Viagra, the impact of the drug around the world, the introduction of new erection drugs, like Levitra and Cialis, and the rapid growth of the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. This wide-ranging book explains how this medical breakthrough and cultural phenomenon have forever changed the meaning of sex in America.
