Fraudulent and fake news has always been circulated by the pharmaceutical companies in order to create a demand for their products. Natural News reports that the whole affair of medical fraud has been taken to a new level by Merck. It is reported that two of Merck’s former employees have filed a complaint against the company accusing it of marketing its multivalent MMR vaccines under false claims that they had 95 percent efficiency rate. The two former Merck virologists have said that the company’s authorities manipulated the test results of multivalent MMR vaccines by including animal antibodies in human blood samples taken before as well as after vaccination.
Another pharmaceutical giant, GlaxoSmithKline, has been fined $3 billion for lying to the FDA, fraudulent marketing process, hiding clinical data and above all, bribing doctors. Through a nine year investigation on its activities, GlaxoSmithKline has been proven t to be involved in a number of immoral and illegal practices. The company has pleaded guilty too and has agreed to pay $1 billion in criminal fines and an additional $2 billion in civil fines. It is also charged with deceiving authorities regarding the effectiveness of its medicines which ultimately helped it earn billions.
Government authorities seem to be tireless in their effort of preventing the formation of any public opinion against factory farms who are least concerned about the animals they grow. A new law has been passed in many states paving the way for the authorities to penalize those who report malpractice at factory farms. Natural News reports that this new law will only aggravate the cruelty towards animals in those farms and will seriously compromise the issue of food safety. Though several organizations have raised their voice against the law, it is uncertain to what extent the authorities are going to pay attention to them.
