Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher, and leader of the Nordic Cochrane Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written numerous reviews within the Cochrane collaboration.
Dr.Gøtzsche has been critical of screening for breast cancer using mammography, arguing that it cannot be justified; His critique stems from a meta-analysis he did on mammography screening studies and published as Is screening for breast cancer with mammography justifiable? in The Lancet in 2000. In it he discarded 6 out of 8 studies arguing their randomization was inadequate.
In 2006 a paper by Gøtzsche on mammography screening was electronically published in the European Journal of Cancer ahead of print. The journal later removed the paper completely from the journal website without any formal retraction. The paper was later published in Danish Medical Bulletin with a short note from the editor, and Gøtzsche and his coauthors commented on the unilateral retraction that the authors were not involved in.
In 2012 his book Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy was published. In 2013 his book Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare was published. http://www.cochrane.org/
Psychiatrists are criminals, they invent fictitious diseases and drug people for profit causing the same symptoms they claim to treat. I am surprised psychiatry is lasting as long as it has. Needs to be abolished and governments need to be sued.
One thing I have no doubt about. I have Diabetes Type 1. I am dependent on insulin and several tools like finger pricks that I must, without a cure, use the rest of my life. I earn the many companies who focus on Diabetes medication and tools a lot of money. As I understand it now there is real progress in finding and developing cures. I can safely say that I have zero confidence that the big companies will keep their filthy hands to themselves and let cures come into existence without any interference.
Take the insulin I use.
They have some sort of copyright so that after I believe ten years, a formula for a specific insulin can be then taken by other companies who can then produce it for a much lower cost. I believe this applies to medicine in general, after an amount of time the production can be taken over by other companies. This is true. Now what do the inventive big pharma companies do who develop these insulins, at the end of the ten year time span they release a *slightly* improved version of the last one. And they are set for another ten years of money grabbing. This has just happened with Novo Rapid(insulin aspart), which has now become Fiasp(insulin aspart). It is slightly improved, and because we all want the best medication, we go en masse for the much more expensive Fiasp insulin. It is improved, but only slightly. It has also become more expensive. And there is no talk about cures. Just slightly improved version of many different medicines and tools at ever higher costs.
Perhaps the big pharma do have some level of ethics and moral conscience, but it sure as hell does not extend so far that they will let a sickness get cured which would mean that millions upon millions of customers for their medication and tools will disappear in the shortest amount of time. The money they can make off of us is worth the damage done to our health. The stakes are so high for these companies when it comes to diseases like diabetes, they will choose money over conscience, every time, any time, I know of no fact that proofs this, but common sense can be used here.
The pharmaceutical companies do not even know HOW psyc drugs work. There is no science behind these drugs they are pushing down peoples throats. They are giving these drugs to children as young as three years old. This is a crime.
That‘s not how capitalism works, that‘s how _crony capitalism_ works, the mostly hidden cooperation between a _certain_ business class and the political class in a state.
Many well-meaning people are so indoctrinated by anti-capitalism while they are so in love with the idea of big government/state that they‘re not able to see this obvious link.
Witchcraft and pharmakeia are stepping stones into the evil and dangerous supernatural world of the occult. It’s a short journey from these activities to demon possession, Wicca, and satanic worship. Drugs, aka pharmakeia, are a natural part of these activities used to open the mind to the arena of the supernatural. Vines Expository Dictionary defines “pharmakeia” (translated witchcraft and sorcery in the New Testament) as: “primarily signified as ‘the use of medicine, drugs, spells,’ then “poisoning,” then “sorcery.”
Actually drugs cause most cancer and heart disease deaths too most likely. Chemo - when you look at all chemo and all cancer types - kill 97.9% of Americans within 5 years. You'd live longer without chemo. Statins and other heart meds are horribly unsafe.
For example - digoxin and digitalis are derived from the heart herb foxglove - also toxic as are the drugs from it. The difference? When a person overdoses on toxicity of the two drugs made from foxglove, the FIRST symptom is ventrical tachycardia and a good chance of immediate death from that. If you take foxglove the first symptom of toxicity is nausea. So the whole herb does the same basic function with incredibly greater safety.....
I was on 8 diff psychiatric drugs(I thought I was depressed)plus i was on morphine,benzos,sleeping pills & the drug store never said a word about the interactions-before that i was on 150mcg's of fentanyl patches..my whole family suffered,glad i finally got off them..it was killing my brain! I was a zombie!
Governments have given too much political power to pharmaceutical companies and doctors. Doctors/pharma are not Law, Order and Government and should never be given any political power in any circumstance.
Should I take my pills and get more sick? No thank you... Prove the opposite... Doctors getting paid by phama is a crime, or? For what are there getting paid? For noting? No work and getting money. I want the same.... Why not me?
My lung Cancer Metastasised and spread too other organs, thai peppers from local farmboy grocery store saved my life. I had too eat 6 a day and boy are they hot but in a single day of treatment you feal a noticeable difference in your over-all health and keep going with the spicy treatment. spicy Thai chilli peppers are allot more effective than any thing you hear about on youtube just look at how low cancer rates are in thai land. Dont trust the baking soda bullshit or mixing cottage cheese and flaxseed oil in a blender they dont work. B17 is not effective enough for cancer too trust your life too it i've tried. I even tried heated oil from indica plants and it didn't do a bit of good as far as i could tell. These small red Thai Peppers are the Cure too Cancer! Stay away from Dairy and Soda if you Have cancer currently! my lung cancer metastasised back in 2007 and i never went too hospital for treatment. I swear too you im telling you the truth!!!!!!!!!!

Big Pharma has been paying doctors to promote newer more expensive drugs to children who are on forced mental health treatment and cant refuse the drugs and become test subjects. The person who pays for it is you and the taxpayers. The people who profit is big pharma. The people who lose are you and me. The problem with newer drugs is there could be a mountain of side effects and lawsuits in 20 years from now. The side effects that even mental health professionals didn't know about like boys growing breast. It took them 20 years to pull the drugs due to male child breast growth. We need to prevent big pharma child abusers from abusing children with the system and drugs. We need a new law that makes it illegal for big pharma to promote newer drugs to children because of unknown side effects. Big pharma can still promote a 20 year old drug if it was proven effective. The catch is that the 20 year old drug would have a generic version and Americans and taxpayers would save thousands of dollars on the generic drug promoted by big pharma. This cuts big pharma off from testing new drugs on children who cant consent to force drug treatment and become lab rats.
U.S Senators and U.S Presidential Candidates agree on one thing is that big pharma has been paying them with money donations to stop them from testifying against big pharma. If somebody breaks the law and bribes a cop then should they bribe the judge too. Big pharma works in America by not helping patients and setting patients up for failure. The system isn't helping any of them. Ok Big Pharma just paid a money donation to the U.S CIA. Why should big pharma not pay money donations to the FBI and Law Enforcement too to drop an investigation. Thats how the drug cartels in Mexico operate too by paying everyone off to drop the investigation and to get out of prison because everyone paid off will say you are innoncent despite being guilty.
But...they would wouldn't they? All general doctors come up via the standard textbook training route. Unless you question it or step outside it you're just going to parrot it as convention. I have a lot of respect for doctors, they do a hard job under difficult circumstances but does that make them infallible? I have been (in the past) put on drugs without knowing why, what for or what will happen, or when I should come off them, if I should. I have been put on drugs without checking my hormones or doing tests to see if I really need that drug, just pure guesswork when it comes to handing out medicines and pills. And it is SO costly, especially drugs you're expected to keep taking at great cost to your own pocket. Drugs that you may not even need to be on. Or that are simply, the wrong product, based on a best guess.
His one comment at the end was wrong. It is not how free market capitalism works. It is how crony capitalism, which is more like socialism, works. In a real free market capitalism, the pharma's would be arrested and put out of business.
How I wish I had known how dangerous and corrupt Modern Medicine is before I became a victim of criminal doctors who targeted and tricked me into radical surgery, destroying my health and my life... Beware of any doctor who uses the cancer scare to frighten you into surgery, especially the gynaecological industry where 90% of all their procedures are unnecessary and causes far more harm than good...

I've got so much respect for the Cochrane group, but Peter's comments in Christchurch on Monday can only be described as inflammatory. As a person living with ADHD I have had my life changed significantly by treatment with psychostimulant medications, and for the better. Having looked at the literature on both psychostimulants and antidepressants, I can't understand how Peter can bunch both groups of medications and disorders in together the way that he has done. The evidence for efficacy of SSRI's in treating depression is certainly fairly weak, but as far as psychostimulants in the treatment of ADHD there couldn't be a statement further from the truth. Does Gotzsche really understand the disorder at all?
I've been trying to get my Muslim community to realise they are actually commiting the worst sin possible in our religion, which is associating partners with God. Because by trusting doctors as if their advice is the Word of God, they are in reality commiting idol worship. Aka as Shirk.
Rispedone let me get a year of deep rest, I was mentally unstable, having delusions. I slowly got off them, let adderall for Strettera, and nortripeley for pain took me from and 8-2. I was on xanax and ambien for years with chornic pain and left stuff, wake me up, calm me down and put me to sleep. I dont think this issues is black and white. I feel that drugs do more go than harm. I see the real problem as what society creates to where people need to be on these drugs to survive. That is the real issue, your enviroment. Just my opinion.
My husband has hypertension, prediabetes, heart disease (had a double bypass last year), lupus, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. His cardiologist, rheumatologist and GP all say the cause of these diseases is unknown, diet has nothing to do with the diseases, the diseases will all get worse as time goes by and there's no cure. HOWEVER, they say the diseases can be "managed" with a cocktail of methotrexate, prednisone, humera, statins, beta blockers, etc. We then discovered plant-based doctors like McDougall and Dean Ornish and Greger and realized we were lied to - there is a simple miracle cure: whole foods, low fat vegan diet, exercise and yoga (stress management). My husband has cured his angina. The pain in his hips and hands has disappeared. His blood pressure is normal. He's off the steroid, chemo drug and statin. I don't worry every day that he'll have a heart attack or need stents or joint replacement or that his hands will turn to claws from the arthritis. Plant-based doctors like McDougall give us HOPE and put us at ease. I wish people would understand we are walking around as a nation sick, obese and fatigued with a bag full of pills and side effects. I wish more people could learn that big pharma and the meat and dairy industry are poisoning people for profit.
We all know this, but the system stays the same...because people are more scared about stupid shit and what the media tells them to be scared about. People dont want to deal with the complex ad tend to focus more on xenophobia and racism etc instead of us fighting together for a better world.. by changing the system. But nah, people are too busy being narcissistic and idiotic . SO big pharma can continue doing what they do and it wont stop. The worst is someone who studies for years only to have the status of being a doctor or psychiatrist and not TO HELP and be ETHICAL. Its an insane world with a fucked up system, and we think we have it good..
Don't let a 7 minute video make you quit taking psyachiatric medecine if they're prescribed for you before you gain enough knowledge and right information about your mental challenge if you have one. It could make you feel sicker and commit suicide ad eve hallucinate in the case of people diagnosed with psychoses.
It's true that many people are misidagnosed, overdiagnosed, mismedicated and/or overmedicated but that comes down to the skills and experiece and your doctor and how do you react to your medecine.
Everyone reacts differently to every different medecine, for example two people can use the same medecine under the same diagnoses while one of them can get severe side effects with no or low positive effects while the second will possibly have no side effects and complete positive responses to the illness.
The reason this researcher is making a move is because more than 75% of danish people use psychiatric medecines even if they're not ill unfortunately.
Please ! Feed your mind before you take any actions.
This is well known since more than 100 years ago: ”The drugging business has done more harm to our world and killed more than it has helped or cured.” Ellen White - 1898! Thanks, dr. Gøtzsche, for confirming this.
Pharmaceutical industry is bigger than military industry in the USA. They make drugs to cure one organ and at the same time damage the others, so you come and see doctor again for more drugs. Big pharma and doctors don't want you as a patient, they want you as a client to make more money.
He is right up until his last comment: "That's how capitalism works". No. You're attributing government intervention to capitalism, whereas government intervention is what creates these problems through protectionism and by default is not capitalism.
Some call it crony capitalism. But drop the "capitalism" if you are to understand what capitalism _is_. Corporatism is more accurate.
It's too bad the doctor ruined an otherwise great video with his final comment about capitalism. It matters not which political system is in place, whether it's capitalism or socialism or whatever, there will always be corruption. I think it's actually worse under socialism from world events I have seen. One of biggest reasons, among others, for so much corruption is that these huge companies are allowed to get too big and they accumulate too much money. The governments should break up these companies at a certain point. Actually, there are anti-trust laws in the US to do just that but they are rarely used. Oh, I forgot ... then from where would the corrupt politicians get their money?
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
