Emails obtained through a public records request reveal how Big Pharma, supposed independent researchers and the Food and Drug Administration are involved in a pay-for-play scheme involving drug trials and research.
The emails show that a scientific panel that shaped FDA policy for testing the safety and effectiveness of painkillers required $25,000 fees from drug manufacturers to attend the panel’s meetings. The panel, led by two academics, provided advice to the FDA on how to weigh evidence from clinical trials.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration are nothing more than taxpayer-funded marketing arms for the medical industrial complex. They are used to provide government-sanctioned legitimacy to a host of fake “diseases” created in labs along with their cures: expensive pharmaceuticals and tests for diagnosis.
The CDC foists upon the public disinformation like this: “CDC estimates that from the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 flu season, flu-associated deaths ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people.” As the CDC believes that 3,000 to 49,000 annual deaths in a country with more than 313 million people is a travesty, it recommends everyone above age 6 should get the flu vaccine each year. It claims that the vaccine prevents flu 50 percent to 70 percent of the time.
