Fascism, Mussolini said, is the control of the State by the Corporations. And he certainly knew! Most Pharmas have links to Nazi chemical corporations. Years ago, a founder of Merck stated that he would like all people to be on drugs to keep them well. Big Pharma and its subsidiaries make up half the stock market - a dangerous amount. The contributions of Big Pharma to charities, nonprofits and governments almost guarantee that what the donor wants, not what the people need, will be done. We need to stop being 'sheeple'. and become responsible for our own health. There is much that we can do for ourselves with diet, exercise and vitamins. We should question what drugs are being advertised to us and why doctors, who now seem to 'swear by the Dollar', push medications on us.

Dr. Kassirer has taken an extreme view and paints the entire medical profession with his cynical brush. His statements about how easily highly respected academic physicians serve as stooges for drug companies are without foundation and an insult to the hard-working men in women in that profession.
