Leaked memo reveals big pharma’s strategy to combat regulators who want drug trial results published

Leaked memo reveals big pharma’s strategy to combat regulators who want drug trial results published | Essential Oils | Scoop.it

The pharmaceutical industry has “mobilised” an army of patient groups to lobby against plans to force companies to publish secret documents on drugs trials.

 

Drugs companies publish only a fraction of their results and keep much of the information to themselves, but regulators want to ban the practice. If companies published all of their clinical trials data, independent scientists could reanalyse their results and check companies’ claims about the safety and efficacy of drugs.

 

Under proposals being thrashed out in Europe, drugs companies would be compelled to release all of their data, including results that show drugs do not work or cause dangerous side-effects.

  

While some companies have agreed to share data more freely, the industry has broadly resisted the moves. The latest strategy shows how patient groups – many of which receive some or all of their funding from drugs companies – have been brought into the battle.

Can anyone think of  a reason why drug trial results should NOT be available to people and their prescribing doctors?

Grasping the Essence: My Essential Oil Diary (first week)

Grasping the Essence: My Essential Oil Diary (first week) | Essential Oils | Scoop.it
Robin is such a generous and kind man and is always looking for ways to show people hospitality. Unfortunately, and to my shame, I can be a bit of a damper on his spontaneous enthussism because my first thought is, “The bathroom needs to be cleaned, the house is a mess and I can’t put together a meal plan in under an hour.” It’s not that I don’t want guests – I love having people over but I want them to feel at ease and comfortable. Today was no exception. But Robin enfolded a family of five and two bachelors in his welcoming arms and I capitulated. In his desire to reduce my internal stress Robin decided to cook dinner. However, the crashes and bangs emanating from the kitchen and his cries of ‘don’t come in whatever you do!” were not exactly reassuring to me. I am pleased to say that, despite my misgivings, we had a lovely evening. Good natured debate amongst the adults, happy play amongst the children, a wonderful meal and the boathroom was clean (even though the landury pile was in plain view of anyone who ventured downstairs).  Lavender and Orange Oil CustardRobin made pork with apples, cider and juniper berries (in which he used black pepper essential oil) and for dessert he made Lavender and Orange infused custard (with essential oils of course!). After our guests had depart and our children were in bed, the two young men, stayed up with Robin and me until midnight discussing the philosophical themes of a movie we had watched. Though it was great fun, Robin began to get a powerful headache which was not even relieved by the application of peppermint. The headache got so bad that Robin began vommiting from the pain. Once he got to sleep he slept fine but when he woke up Monday morning he still had a pounding headache. Nothing seemed to make much difference until I tried Aroma Siez. – within 15 minutes he was able to get up.

Hello! I’m a homeschooling, home-making, home-loving mother of five wonderful children.  Our two oldest children have flown the nest, our middle boy is in high school at a classical Christian school and I’m home-educating the youngest two. Robin, my husband, keeps this website going because I have no time, no energy and no hope of ever maintaining it. Essential oils play a huge part in our lives in so many ways. As and when I get a spare moment I’ll jot down a diary of the impact essential oils have in our busy family life!

"Plants contain complex and powerful substances known as essential oils. These are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. These distinctive components defend plants from insects, harsh environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Referred to as the essence of the plant, pure essential oils not only protect the plant, but also determine its aroma. 

 

Essential oils have been used throughout time dating back to 4500 BC. From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, essential oils have been used in everyday life for centuries. In modern days, research shows that pure essential oils can provide similar benefits to humans and animals that they give to ..."
