    Big Pharma is willing to lie to you for profit. Story at eleven.

    No surprise. They find a new one every week or so.

    So, of the 22 drugs investigated, please identify the one winner.

    I have read so many studies where the drug candidate had only a marginal benefit compared to the placebo.

    The million dollar medication was just 1, 2 or maybe 3% better than saline or a sugar pill? Yet the drugs all come with horrendous side-effects and cost tens of thousands of dollars.

    For what?

    A friend’s son had a liver cancer Dx some years ago. He was prescribed 5-FU, – A drug patented back in 1956. It wasn’t particularly effective back then and has not become any better.

    He lasted about a month or two.

    I’m sure the medication cost his insurance many thousands, and he suffered through the side-effects.

    All for nothing.

    Cancer drugs are poison. Hence they kill cancer cells, however they can and do kill good and healthy human cells. My personal experience have been biologicals have destroyed
    my immunomes to all meds.I survived covied 19 by isolation and no outside contact with medical people.
    At present time my daughter-in-law is in a battel after breast cancer. over dose of chemo
    drugs my medical doctors .and steroids’ to fight the cancer.Very painful.
    Just read the labels “fact sheets “on all your medications. God help us all.

    Thank you so much for highlighting this study. Most of us don’t understand we are the lab rats

    they may do no good for the patients, but no matter where they come from, they make a ton of money for the manufacturer and the global drug industry. It’s not about the patients. It’s about the money – from the charities, to the private businesses, to the public/private partnerships to the governments – the $ matters most.

    They do more than absolutely nothing, they will make you miserable and die sooner.
    Think long and hard if you have terminal cancer before undertaking treatment that will make you physically ill.
    Not all treatments do this.
    Investigate and get 2nd opinions.

    There is no money in a cure, but treatments are the money makers. Just think of all those pointy heads and fancy, expensive equipment would be out a job. Notice, every time a cure or semi-cure is announced, it disappears and is never heard from again.

      A patient cured is a customer lost.

    So what’s new? Since 1980 when interferon made the cover of Time magazine, the public has been fed one new miracle drug that uses the inmmune system to fight cancer after the other. For most people, they do little or nothing. I know there are people that respond but they are few and far between.
