Big Pharma’s Gaming of Medical Studies: Twisted Statistics and How to Spot Them

Big Pharma’s Gaming of Medical Studies: Twisted Statistics and How to Spot Them | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Medical trials are routinely gamed by manipulating statistics. The old adage about lies, damned lies, and statistics was never more true than in modern drug studies.

 

It isn’t necessary to have a deep understanding of statistics to comprehend some of the tricks being used. This article discusses some of them in plain English. If you spot them in the report of a study, it’s a good indication that the results are being misrepresented by the authors of the study itself.

 

Modern news media virtually never examines the studies themselves. Not even medical outlets bother. They simply spew the conclusions claimed by the researchers and the press releases written for them.

Would We Have Drugged Up Einstein? How Anti-Authoritarianism Is Deemed a Mental Health Problem | Personal Health | AlterNet

Would We Have Drugged Up Einstein? How Anti-Authoritarianism Is Deemed a Mental Health Problem | Personal Health | AlterNet | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

According to Dr Bruce Levine in this article,

 

"Albert Einstein, as a youth, would have likely received an ADHD diagnosis, and maybe an ODD one as well. Albert didn't pay attention to his teachers, failed his college entrance examinations twice, and had difficulty holding jobs."

 

"After he did enter college, one professor told Einstein, “You have one fault; one can’t tell you anything.” The very characteristics of Einstein that upset authorities so much were exactly the ones that allowed him to excel."

 

"Americans have been increasingly socialized to equate inattention, anger, anxiety, and immobilizing despair with a medical condition, and to seek medical treatment rather than political remedies.

What better way to maintain the status quo than to view inattention, anger, anxiety, and depression as biochemical problems of those who are mentally ill rather than normal reactions to an increasingly authoritarian society?"

 

The real answer to this problem is to change the current corrupt authoritarian system to a more open system where people can engage in critical thinking and express their views and be allowed to have those views published in an open media without being labelled as 'mentally ill'.

Scientists shocked to find antibiotics alleviate symptoms of schizophrenia

Scientists shocked to find antibiotics alleviate symptoms of schizophrenia | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
A cheap antibiotic normally prescribed to teenagers for acne is to be tested as a treatment to alleviate the symptoms of psychosis in patients with schizophrenia, in a trial that could advance scientific understanding of the causes of mental illness.

 

The chance observation caused researchers to test the drug in patients with schizophrenia around the world. Trials in Israel, Pakistan and Brazil have shown significant improvement in patients treated with the drug.

 

Scientists believe that schizophrenia and other mental illnesses including depression and Alzheimer's disease may result from inflammatory processes in the brain. Minocycline has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects which they believe could account for the positive findings.

Those Who Trust Their Intuition and Emotions Can More Accurately Predict The Future...

 

Across studies, the researchers used two different methods to manipulate or measure how much individuals relied on their feelings to make their predictions. In some studies, the researchers used an increasingly standard trust-in-feelings manipulatio. In other studies, the researchers simply measured how much participants typically relied on their feelings in general when making predictions.

 

Due to the nature of our emotions and how they emerge from our unconscious mind, from our internal supercomputer, they tend to reflect more information than our rational mind. Buying a car or getting married are just the kind of decisions that seem to benefit the most from a more emotional, intuitive thought process.

The Attack On Pregnant Mothers Escalates, by Suzanne Humphries, MD - La Leva di Archimede (ENG)

The Attack On Pregnant Mothers Escalates, by Suzanne Humphries, MD - La Leva di Archimede (ENG) | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Expectant mothers will be told that getting a flu shot while they are pregnant is not only safe, but will protect from one of the possible consequences of influenza while pregnant – low birth weight.

 

How many doctors will ever read the abstract, let alone the full text? In the hectic environment of medical practice, they will take someone else’s word for it, and reassure unsuspecting mothers that the vaccine is the way to go.

 

There are several serious problems with this study, the least of which is that it was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and several pharmaceutical companies. Bill did, after all declare this the “decade of vaccination,” after delivering a check in the amount of 10 Billion dollars to make it happen...

Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages The Liver It Is Supposed To Protect

Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages The Liver It Is Supposed To Protect | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Startling new research published in the journal Apoptosisindicates that hepatitis B vaccine, which is designed to prevent Hepatitis B virus-induced damage to the liver, actually causes liver cell destruction.

 

In the study titled “Hepatitis B vaccine induces apoptotic death in Hepa1-6 cells,” researchers set out to “...establish an in vitro model system amenable to mechanistic investigations of cytotoxicity induced by hepatitis B vaccine, and to investigate the mechanisms of vaccine-induced cell death.”

 

They found the hepatitis B vaccine induced a “loss of mitochondrial integrity, apoptosis induction, and cell death” in liver cells exposed to a low dose of adjuvanted hepatitis B vaccine.

FDA Says Walnuts Are Illegal Drugs

FDA Says Walnuts Are Illegal Drugs | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Diamond Foods made truthful claims about the health benefits of consuming walnuts that the FDA didn’t approve, so the agency sent the company a letter declaring, “Your walnut products are drugs” — and “new drugs” at that — and, therefore, “they may not legally be marketed … in the United States without an approved new drug application.” The agency even threatened Diamond with “seizure” if it failed to comply.

 

On its website and packaging, the company stated that the omega-3 fatty acids found in walnuts have been shown to have certain health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and some types of cancer. These claims, Faloon notes, are well supported by scientific research: “Life Extension has published 57 articles that describe the health benefits of walnuts”; and “The US National Library of Medicine database contains no fewer than 35 peer-reviewed published papers supporting a claim that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart attack risk.”

 

This evidence was apparently not good enough for the FDA...

An eminent doctor was celebrating a dramatic victory today after the High Court ruled that a decision to strike him off over the MMR controversy was unlawful.

 

Today the GMC suffered a serious blow when Mr Justice Mitting, sitting in London, ruled the verdict and the decision to strike off could not stand.

 

The judge criticised the disciplinary panel's "inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion".

 

The judge said: "It would be a misfortune if this were to happen again."

 

He urged that in future such cases should be "chaired by someone with judicial experience".

Transparency Launches as Linux of Drug Development | Xconomy

Transparency Launches as Linux of Drug Development | Xconomy | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

When Tomasz Sablinski was working in pharmaceutical R&D, he was often frustrated by the demand for secrecy in the clinical trials process---a misdirected effort, he says, to keep competitors in the dark about what drug companies were up to. “The price you pay when you hide what you’re doing is you only get feedback from a precious few people,” he says. “There is very little new blood in the ideation process.”

 

So in late January, Sablinski and his company, Transparency Life Sciences, rolled out the beta version of a virtual community of physicians, scientists, and patients whose input is helping the company develop three drugs. The site (transparencyls.com), which is being managed by a handful of staff members in New York City and Boston, has only been live for a few weeks. But it has already attracted about 30 patients, who have been actively trading notes about their experiences and making suggestions for clinical trials, Sablinski says.

 

 

Sablinski hopes the population of registered users will balloon in the coming weeks, when Transparency begins reaching out to patient advocacy groups in the disease areas it’s working in: multiple sclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, and inflammatory bowel disease. “What we’re trying to do is channel this tremendous Web energy into helping us create experiments that will answer the right questions,” Sablinski says.

The concept of RDBPC (randomized, double-blind placebo controlled) trials was never truly studied to determine how effective it is. Nonetheless, their use is righteously declared the gold standard, the type of trial that must be performed before any medical treatment can be declared effective or safe. If medicine were truly science-based, wouldn’t the quality of the gold standard be put to the test?

The Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues also explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. The bottom line was: “Living chromosomes function just like solitonic/holographic computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation.” This means that they managed for example to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs and of language (as explained earlier) are of the same structure, no DNA decoding is necessary.


One can simply use words and sentences of the human language! This, too, was experimentally proven! Living DNA substance (in living tissue, not in vitro) will always react to language-modulated laser rays and even to radio waves, if the proper frequencies are being used.

New Zealand Food Bill - How trade affects national sovereignty

New Zealand Food Bill - How trade affects national sovereignty | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

The bills are either World Trade Organisation or Codex Alimentarius-initiated bills, or they meet the aims of these organisations. They do not specifically address the needs of the food and natural health industry in New Zealand.

 

The Natural Health Products Bill seems to be aimed at standardising products and potential ingredients. This is not how nature works. It will restrict the possibilities massively, largely due to cost.

 

Significant issues for New Zealand’s safety include campylobacter in domestic foods, and heavy metals and other contaminants in imported foods. Campylobacter rates are unlikely to reduce under this law, because Kate Wilkinson has said high-risk food producers were already meeting the level of compliance that would be required. Contaminant levels will not improve because guidelines will follow those of Codex. Why have we heard so little from the government on how the bill is meant to make food safer?

Diabetes May Start in the Intestines, Research Suggests -- Sott.net

Diabetes May Start in the Intestines, Research Suggests -- Sott.net | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have made a surprising discovery about the origin of diabetes.

 

Their research suggests that problems controlling blood sugar -- the hallmark of diabetes -- may begin in the intestines.

 

The new study, in mice, may upend long-held theories about the causes of the disease. Because insulin is produced in the pancreas and sugar is stored in the liver, many scientists have looked to those organs for the underlying causes of diabetes.

 

"Fatty acid synthase [an enzyme] is required to keep that mucosal layer intact," Wei says. "Without it, bad bacteria invade cells in the colon and the small intestine, creating inflammation, and that, in turn, contributes to insulin resistance and diabetes."

Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

 

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower ...
