you never heard of before were created by Madison Avenue with
only one objective in mind: Create a new market, scare the hell out of everybody who might have even some of the egregious symptoms, then convince them that they have a new syndrome
with an easily remembered name.
Its no coincidence that the most recent TV commercials aired by Big Pharma just happen to have a brandnew product that will make you all better.
Just how many new syndromes are created this month will be directly proportional to how many new products multinational pharmaceutical companies want to sell, not only to your doctor, but to you directly.
Ive personally been involved in product liability lawsuits that revealed a smoking gun memo within the memos used to prepare for FDA hearings. They included comments that, in sum and substance, advised the company employees and attorneys to try to
steer the FDA inquiry away from the topic if the FDA realized there was a risk of stroke.
Making millions a week by getting a drug switched from prescription to over-the-counter seems to be a great incentive to ignore morality completely. You see, all you have to do is take doctors out of the equation, tell the public that the FDA has approved the product, and the money rolls in faster than you could print it yourself.
That doesnt mean doctors are not being approached daily, with enormous attempts to get them to sign on with the industry
programs. Even doctors can be manipulated. Some can be purchased.

After almost six years of pretrial wrangling, an eight-day trial
was held in July, resulting in the recent decision that DADT is
unconstitutional. While space limitations for this column preclude
an in-depth analysis of the trial, the substance of the plaintiffs case is encapsulated by one witness.

On Sept. 11, 2001, the ships captain chose Kopfstein to be officer of the deck after the New York City and Pentagon attacks as the Shiloh was ordered to sea. A year and a half later, after multiple deployments, winning a prestigious ship-handling competition and in spite of positive testimony from Liggett and his successor-in-command, the U.S. Navy discharged then-Lt. Kopfstein pursuant to DADT.
She was one of many gay and lesbian former servicemembers
who testified for the Log Cabin Republicans. Notably, all were
