The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 01.04.17

After I give a 15 minute introduction about how the FDA may be doing more harm than good, Kim Witczak, consumer representative on the FDA Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee, joins me to delve deeply into how the FDA too often betrays its mandate to serve and protect the public, and instead serves and protects the drug companies. Specific topics include the recent unprecedented FDA action of removing a lengthy Black Box warning from the smoking drug Chantix about its severe psychiatric adverse effects including suicide; and the FDA’s present consideration of drug company requests to allow them to market drugs to doctors for purposes that are not approved by the FDA. We also talk about direct to consumer advertising. Evermore, we cannot trust big government; evermore we cannot trust big business; and we cannot trust the legal system either. This hour examines evil without finding an easy way to combat it. On the bright side, it offers inspiration in Kim Witczak and her work as a self-made, highly dedicated and effective reformer!

Let’s Create A Better World – 02.13.16

Liz Barris is an activist who has been tirelessly working at making the public aware of the dangers concerning wireless radiation which is coming from various sources in the city and people’s homes. She gives an update on the latest progress in her continuous fight to remedy the situation (or eradicate the technology) which severely affects people who are hyper-sensitive to Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMF’s).
Being one of these people being affected, Liz talks about how her life was disrupted as she got sick where she lived, at home, and at work, causing her to actually have to move several times.
We talked at length about the dangers of radiation and how many people will gradually be affected by it. Currently there are numerous lawsuits around the country concerning people who have already been affected, some becoming extremely sick and others actually dying.

Sources of this radiation include cell phones, cell phone towers, wifi in homes and across the city – as is the case where Liz was living – and also comes from computers, laptops, wireless phones, power lines and smart meters, etc. Smart meters are some of the latest of this technology from gas and electric companies which are being installed on homes, businesses, apartment buildings, and anywhere else that uses those utilities.

James Lyons-Weiler – The Pharma Bulls are Loose, and it’s the End of American Democracy

A free and open market is a conservative’s dream. Laissez-faire policies mean freedom of markets to explore, and evolve. Competition, the argument goes, drives innovation, and innovation means better goods and services for consumers. The natural checks and balances of supply & demand provide brakes on runaway aggregation of wealth, and all stakeholders – including investors, workers, consumers, producers – …

Ethan A. Huff – Former congressman blows whistle on how Republican party strong-armed members into approving massive prescription drug profit program for Big Pharma

Today’s Republican Party, to put it bluntly, is a joke. The so-called party of conservatism has lost its way, and former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo has decided to part ways and become an Independent, a decision that largely hinges on what he says is rampant and unapologetic corruption by Republicans in constantly pushing the special interest agenda of the pharmaceutical industry. In …
