The CDC has recently published warnings against doctors over-prescribing opiates for pain. Is there more to this than meets the eye? Richard A. Lawhern discusses how the CDC is causing doctors to abandon their patients, and doing more harm than good. Most pain meds are not nearly as profitable as drugs like Eli Lilly’s Zyprexa. I offer evidence that drug companies like Lilly are trying to open a new market in pain patients who are finding it harder to get opiates that cost less and work far better.
The guest was Martha Rosenberg, an award winning health journalist and author of the book, “Born With a Junk Food Deficiency: How Flaks, Quacks and Hacks Pimp the Public Health.” Many topics were discussed including the take over of the food industry by Big Ag and Big Pharma and the many drugs and chemicals given to the animals eaten by people in the US. The attempted censorship of the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe was also discussed and the CDC’s fraudulent study published in 2004 that covered up the link between vaccines and autism.

Every parent desires only the best for their children, which is why most parents insist that their children, primarily girls but now also boys, receive the three-shot series of HPV vaccines. Parents do this because there is the unchallenged assumptions that vaccine public mandates and physician recommendations are founded upon sound scientific and medical principles of safety and efficacy. This is not only true for the HPV vaccines—Merck’s Gardasil and Glaxo’s Cervarix—but for all childhood vaccines. Unfortunately, there has been very little effective popular opposition to the vaccination regime except by those parents who have witnessed these vaccines’ devastation upon their children’s developing brains and immune systems. The rate of autism in the US has now risen to 1 in 68. Yet at the same time parents are repeatedly told it is not the vaccines; the industrial food industry repeatedly tells us it is not the GMOs and toxic pesticides such as glyphosate; and the fossil fuel multinationals repeatedly tell us it is not the heavy metals spewing into the atmosphere from their plants. Rather we are consistently told that the medical profession doesn’t harm children. Vaccines save lives. Fortunately more and more people are awakening to these lies. Although there are a growing number of parents fighting the medical establishment, in some cases even winning, they nevertheless have to live with an injured child or teenager, frequently for the remainder of their child’s life. The very federal agencies that support an ever-increasing vaccination schedule—the CDC, HHS, FDA and Surgeon General—and the entire private medical establishment and physicians are complicit in a mutual denial that vaccine scientific review and regulation require a vast systemic overhaul before any vaccine should be pronounced safe and effective before entering the market.
