Health Authorities in most Western Countries see protecting the interests of Drug Companies as one of their first priorities, but hundreds of thousands are dying every year from the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Covering for pharma is endemic with major health authorities in many countries. Examples range from the suppression of hyperbaric therapy to a refusal of US authorities to test for mad cow disease, from trying to keep electromedicine at bay to minimizing the very real dangers of mercury laced vaccines, from pushing antiretroviral drugs despite their deadly side effects to a refusal to acknowledge the problem of drug induced suicides.
Something's not right here, says Nuria O'Mahony, an Emergency Nurse at Cork University Hospital in Ireland. Nuria has lost her husband to an SSRI suicide, and needs help. She is campaigning for full publication of clinical trial data, for a central position for the experience of consumers in the licensing and regulation of prescription drugs, including taking proper account of reports of adverse reactions by consumers, and for regulatory authorities to be free of influence of pharmaceutical companies and to act in the public interest only.
Nuria has launched a petition and here is what she says:
I am an Emergency nurse in Cork University Hospital. I have launched a public government petition to improve the way prescription drugs are regulated in Ireland once licenced to trade. After losing my husband to SSRIs induced suicide when the dangerous adverse effects of these drugs were not all made public. This present system needs to change.
Nothing is going to bring my husband back but if only one family is spared the devastation we had to go through, this petition would have been well worth launching.
The Irish Medicine Board is failing customers. They are failing to prevent and warn about potential harm of drugs by acting upon the information promptly and making it available to consumers and health care professionals. The Irish Medicine Board is funded 100% by pharmaceuticals....that needs to change to get independent regulation of drugs in this country and put the experience of consumers in a central position in the regulation of prescription drugs to prevent further HARM.
Therefore I am requesting you to support it and help me gather signatures in support of this very important issue for us all. Maybe you can sign it yourselves and pass it on to your e-mail contacts for me
