  1. Popular pain reliever boosts atrial fibrillation risk 84%

    AHA attack dogs don't have your best interest at heart

    When I was fighting in World War II, we had ourselves a little deal with the Nazis. They wore their silly knee-high girl boots and parachute pants, and we GIs wore our tough-as-nails green fatigues.

    Because when you're in the heat of battle, when bullets are flying everywhere, you need to be able to tell which side a guy is fighting for.

    Just remember that the next time you hear the goose-stepping frauds at the American Heart Association crowing about how they're fighting some war against heart disease, our country's number-one killer. Because underneath those inspirational T-shirts they toss around at walk-a-thons, the AHA is wearing a uniform that ought to make you madder than a cornered cobra.

    They're playing for Team Big Pharma.

    Just look at how the AHA reacted to a breakthrough study out of the Netherlands that proved a billion-dollar class of prescription painkillers could be a nail in the coffin for seniors like you.

    This massive study followed 8,400 seniors for an average of 13 years and found that folks who took non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) were a whopping 76% more likely to suffer atrial fibrillation, a potentially fatal irregular heartbeat. Worse still, if you took an NSAID -- even prescription-strength ibuprofen -- in the past month, your risk of afib may have skyrocketed 84%!

    So how did these clowns at AHA respond? Did they spend even a fraction of their fortune to warn folks like you to head to your nearest toilet and flush your NSAIDs like a dead goldfish?

    Not exactly. Instead, they dispatched their "spokesman" Dr. Gregg Fonarow of UCLA to throw cold water on the research and declare that more "study" was needed. Friend, when a class of drugs that has ALREADY been linked to heart failure and sudden death boosts your afib risk 84%, we don't need more study -- we need a massive global recall!

    And that's when I started poking around to see which side Dr. Fonarow is REALLY fighting for. Turns out this is the same doctor who accepted $141,000 in "speaking" fees from GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, makers of NSAIDs Treximet and Celebrex. Talk about a "potential" conflict of interest. Lots of you could work tax-free for five years without pulling in as much cash as Dr. Fonarow has accepted from Big Pharma -- and this was the attack dog the AHA chose to unleash to discredit a study that could save your life!

    Friend, I told you I was going to start naming names, and I'm not kidding. AHA and its experts have been accepting millions in drug company "grants" and "donations" for years, and it's high time you learned which team they're playing for.

    Here's a hint -- it's not yours.

  2. Big Pharma corruption scandal widens to Middle East

    Big Pharma in a big mess with Middle East payoff scheme

    When we rolled our tanks across their borders... when our drone missiles turned half of Baghdad into a smoldering parking lot... and especially when we dragged that genocidal dirt bag Saddam Hussein out of a filthy rat hole, we kept making the Iraqi people the same promise.

    Just hang with us -- you're about to get a real taste of the Western way of life.

    Well, leave it to the folks at Big Pharma to keep that promise. Because a new report shows that at least one industry giant may be working overtime to turn the Iraqi healthcare system into a cesspool of corruption, greased by giant wads of drug company cash.

    And, friend, there's nothing more Western than that.

    A brave whistleblower has come forward alleging that GlaxoSmithKline is throwing so much cash around Baghdad you'd think the skies were raining hundred-dollar bills. GSK appears to have handed cash to as many as 16 government doctors and pharmacists, labeling them official "sales representatives."

    That's right -- the same people charged with making health recommendations for millions of Iraqis are apparently on the GSK payroll. (Does anyone know how to say "conflict of interest" in Arabic?) Now don't get me wrong -- when you get a chance to hire a physician trained at the highly prestigious University of Tikrit, you go for it. These are some of the finest docs in the Sunni Triangle.

    But let's not forget that GSK is practically being run out of China for allegedly orchestrating the same payola scheme. And with billions of dollars flooding into a corrupt country like Iraq, anyone could have seen this coming.

    If the Iraqi people really want to prove their independence, it's time to stand up and throw GSK out of the country for good. These poor saps are about to learn that when it comes to health care, the Western way of life leaves plenty to be desired.

  3. Big Pharma turns to traditional Chinese medicine

  4. New study on bad med under way

    The diabetes drug Avandia doesn't need more study -- it needs to be taken out back and shot, like a disloyal thug in a crime family.
