"The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned." —Dr. Charles Armbruster, M. D.

The medical industry, pharmaceutical industry, Big Pharma, Medicare, and healthcare are all synonymous with the drug companies. In November 2021, the top 10 drug companies have a stock market capitalization of $2.4 Trillion. That's just the top 10. The medical industry also happens to be the most corrupt, garnering $35 billion in civil and criminal fines from 2008 - 2021.

"The state of medicine has deteriorated to the point that it is taken for granted that you can't find experts who aren't on the take...International bribery and corruption, fraud in the testing of drugs, criminal negligence in the unsafe manufacture of drugs—the pharmaceutical industry has a worse record of lawbreaking than any other industry. Data fabrication is so widespread that it is called 'making' in the Japanese pharmaceutical industry, 'graphiting' or 'dry labelling' in the United States." —Dr. John Braithwaite, MD, "Corporate Crime in the Pharmaceutical Industry"
"The current medical system is designed to create chronic disease. There is no money in being healthy.” —Dr. Irvin Sahni, MD

On December 2, 2004, Gwen Olsen's niece Megan committed suicide by setting herself on fire-and ended her tortured life as a victim of the adverse effects of prescription drugs. Olsen's poignant autobiographical journey through the darkness of mental illness and the catastrophic consequences that lurk in medicine cabinets around the country offers an honest glimpse into alarming statistics and a health care system ranked last among nineteen industrialized nations worldwide. As a former sales representative in the pharmaceutical industry for several years, Olsen learned firsthand how an unprecedented number of lethal drugs are unleashed in the United States market, but her most heartrending education into the dangers of antidepressants would come as a victim and ultimately, as a survivor. Rigorously researched and documented, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher is a moving human drama that shares one woman's unforgettable journey of faith, forgiveness, and healing.
An expose of white-collar crime in the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical drug industry---the Amazon review of this book reads; "Wonder why this book is so expensive? It is because the Pharmaceutical industry bought up and destroyed as many copies as they could get their hands on. Read it and find out why they wanted this book suppressed.
The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America’s Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies...
During her two decades at The New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Marcia Angell had a front-row seat on the appalling spectacle of the pharmaceutical industry. She watched drug companies stray from their original mission of discovering and manufacturing useful drugs and instead become vast marketing machines with unprecedented control over their own fortunes. She saw them gain nearly limitless influence over medical research, education, and how doctors do their jobs. She sympathized as the American public, particularly the elderly, struggled and increasingly failed to meet spiraling prescription drug prices. Now, in this bold, hard-hitting new book, Dr. Angell exposes the shocking truth of what the pharmaceutical industry has become–and argues for essential, long-overdue change...
In Big Pharma, Big Greed The inside story of one lawyer's battle to stem the flood of dangerous medicines and protect public health Sheller tells a tale that is at once deeply personal but also with wide repercussions for the U.S. health care system and the hundreds of millions of Americans whose lives literally depend on it. Decades of litigating against the pharmaceutical industry taught Sheller one irreducible lesson: In too many instances, unneeded and at times dangerous drugs are foisted on the public without adequate warning as to risks, all in the service of boosting industry profits. All too often, achieving blockbuster status for a patent-protected medication becomes an end in itself, as Big Pharma companies manipulate clinical trial data, draft scholarly articles for friendly physicians often in their pay, and market their drugs for uses that never had been approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration...
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AFTER HEART DISEASE AND CANCER. In his latest ground-breaking book, Peter C Gotzsche exposes the pharmaceutical industries and their charade of fraudulent behaviour, both in research and marketing where the morally repugnant disregard for human lives is the norm. He convincingly draws close comparisons with the tobacco conglomerates, revealing the extraordinary truth behind efforts to confuse and distract the public and their politicians. The book addresses, in evidence-based detail, an extraordinary system failure caused by widespread crime, corruption, bribery and impotent drug regulation in need of radical reforms. "The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life...Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors...the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe. The patients don't realise that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that hasn't been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry...If you don't think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death...If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.
Expose of medical wrongdoings and how alternative methods hold the key.
Award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Gerald Posner traces the heroes and villains of the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical industry and uncovers how those once entrusted with improving life have often betrayed that ideal to corruption and reckless profiteering—with deadly consequences.

Thirty years ago, the head of the drug company Merck made some remarkably candid comments about his distress that his company's market was limited to sick people. Suggesting he would like Merck to be more like the maker of Wrigley's chewing gum, the CEO said it had long been his dream to make drugs for healthy people, to "sell to everyone." That dream now drives the marketing machinery of the most profitable industry on earth. From award-winning Ray Moynihan, -- one of the world's top medical journalists -- Selling Sickness reveals how widening the boundaries of illness and lowering the threshold for treatments is creating millions of new patients and billions in new profits. This in turn is driving up personal drug bills and threatening to bankrupt national health systems all over the world. As more and more ordinary life is "medicalized," the industry moves ever closer to being able to "sell to everyone."

Let's add an 11th book to the list for good measure.

Forewords by three prominent and progressive doctors give great significance to Death by Modern Medicine. They are: Dr. Abram Hoffer, Dr. Joseph Mercola and Dr. Julian Whitaker.

Chapters include: Death by Modern Medical Doctors, Death by Drug Companies, Death by Health Care Bureaucracy, Death by Media, Death by Propaganda, Death by Modern Drugs and Procedures, Death by Modern Science, Death by Cancer Inc., Death by Modern Chemicals, Death by Sugar, Death by Addiction, Death by Denial, Death by Lifestyle, Death by Character Assassination and The Future of Thought.

Death by Modern Medicine identifies the tragic aspects of a medical system that, in its short history of about eighty years, has managed to kill tens of millions of victims. Dr. Dean, in her widely circulated paper, "Death by Medicine", written in November 2003, was the first to identify the extent of these casualties. She confirmed that from 1990-2000 about 7.8 million victims suffered - Death by Medicine. By 2014 the numbers had escalated to over 1 million unnecessary deaths at a cost of over 280 billion dollars.

Many people are shocked by this figure, but our eyes have been opened to the full horror of modern medicine. There have been 140,000 fatal or near fatal reactions to Vioxx; one third of the millions of women who took fen-phen, the weight loss drug, suffered heart and lung damage; heart disease is caused by Celebrex and all the other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; Prozac is causing suicides and homicides as well as heart disease. The list is seemingly endless. Beta blocker drugs have been responsible for an additional 800,000 needless deaths in a 5-year period in Europe, we don’t even have statistics for North America.

Death by Modern Medicine goes beyond the statistics of deaths due to drugs to how the medical monopoly that created the system in the first place is allowed to control health care. There are chapters on propaganda, health care bureaucracy, the business of cancer, media and our own personal addictions to sugar and drugs, and the denial we all harbor to help us cope with the overwhelming burden, are woven into this 487-page volume.

In this book Dr. Dean shares solutions that she had to personally create for her own health and longevity that will keep her away from doctors and out of hospitals. More information in that regard can be found at RnA ReSet (www.rnareset.com) where Dr. Dean’s goal is to give people tools to adapt to our changing environment and not keep either ignoring it or hiding from it or trying to eliminate more and more things in order to stay healthy. Adopt, adapt and survive and thrive is our mandate – not suffer and be silent.

Dr. Dean is a published author and has written dozens of print books and over 100 Kindle books including: The Miracle of Magnesium, IBS for Dummies, IBS Cookbook for Dummies, Menopause Naturally, The Everything Alzheimer Book and Homeopathic Treatments for Children's Common Ailments
