Pharmaganda: A Study of Conflicting Interests

by Editor-in-Chief Dr. Leonard Horowitz, and investigative journalist Sherri Kane

Vast corruption of medicine is administered by persuasion through health science publications according to the authors who indict The Lancet–an esteemed medical journal–and other Reed-Elsevier periodicals for gross conflicting interests.
The Lancet is among 2,000 science journals published by the Reed-Elsevier-ChoicePoint conglomerate. The UK-based company sells more than 250,000 articles annually. Through its vast network of publications, combined with ChoicePoint’s “intelligence services,” control over scientific knowledge and medical practices are certain and have become disastrous. Medical intelligence and health practices have been monopolized and corrupted to the detriment of world health and every doctor and patient.
ChoicePoint was purchased by Reed-Elsevier in 2008 for $3.6 billion in cash. The conglomerate is a “prime intelligence service” supplying governments and multinational corporations with genetic and demographic data, including confidential social security numbers and voter records. The company is best known for administering the corrupted data used to certify George Bush’ s contested 2000 presidential election.
Reed-Elsevier’s archives contain seven million publications read by doctors and scientists whose faith in their “intelligence” is fundamental to every aspect of public policy and governmental decision-making. The impact of this corruption of information, censored studies, and promoted pseudoscience, is shocking. Social progress in general, and public health policies in particular, are sabotaged by this breach of faith, ethical misconduct, and manipulation of basic knowledge needed to serve humanity in every way.
