Dr Exposes big Pharma as organized crime


Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher, and leader of the Nordic Cochrane Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written numerous reviews within the Cochrane collaboration.
Dr.Gøtzsche has been critical of screening for breast cancer using mammography, arguing that it cannot be justified; His critique stems from a meta-analysis he did on mammography screening studies and published as Is screening for breast cancer with mammography justifiable? in The Lancet in 2000. In it he discarded 6 out of 8 studies arguing their randomization was inadequate.

In 2006 a paper by Gøtzsche on mammography screening was electronically published in the European Journal of Cancer ahead of print. The journal later removed the paper completely from the journal website without any formal retraction. The paper was later published in Danish Medical Bulletin with a short note from the editor, and Gøtzsche and his coauthors commented on the unilateral retraction that the authors were not involved in.

In 2012 his book Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy was published. In 2013 his book Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare was published. http://www.cochrane.org/

Undecided on Vaccines? This Survey Might Change Your Mind

Until about a year ago, I was undecided in regards to the dangers of vaccines. My gut told me they were probably bad, but it was difficult to take a stand on the issue. The reason why was simple enough. When it comes to the news, I try to read a diverse set of opinions, many of which I’ve come to trust. But what does one do when the sources of information you trust begin to oppose each other on a big issue? How do you come to a decision when both sides of the debate claim to hold all the answers, while adding that the other side consists of liars and special interests?

Suddenly, your news sources are no longer a shortcut to being informed about the world. Now they’re a source of confusion, and I suspect that a lot of parents feel the same way. Ultimately, you have to listen to both sides, and do your own research. If someone gives you a statistic, don’t take it for face value. You’ve got to find the studies behind the statistic, and seek out the finer details. You have to use that big beautiful brain god gave you to find the truth. But if you continue to rely on other people’s opinions, a satisfying conclusion will be elusive…
