Big pharma has ceased control of health agencies globally. It’s time for a change.
A health Canada insider exposed that Health Canada’s mandate is not to make Canadians healthier but, to protect intellectual property rights of pharmaceutical companies.
Now they are going after natural health products. They cant have natural remedies getting in the way of big pharma.
The USA is no different. The FDA and NIH are almost totally funded by pharma. Imagine regulating the people that pay your salary. Not only that, but government employees are commonly paid royalties on the drugs they approve.
Did Fauci and Collins Receive Royalty Payments from Drug Companies?
It has a new report out that should raise eyebrows. According to information garnered from Freedom of Information Act Requests, between 2009-2014, both Anthony Fauci and former NIH director Francis Collins received royalty payments from pharmaceutical companies. This may present a conflict of interest since they had a great deal of influence in deciding what research the government funds.
From the report: Last year, the National Institutes of Health – Anthony Fauci’s employer – doled out $30 billion in government grants to roughly 56,000 recipients. That largess of taxpayer money buys a lot of favor and clout within the scientific, research, and healthcare industries.
However, in our breaking investigation, we found hundreds of millions of dollars in payments also flow the other way. These are royalty payments from third-party payers (think pharmaceutical companies) back to the NIH and individual NIH scientists.
We estimate that between fiscal years 2010 and 2020, more than $350 million in royalties were paid by third-parties to the agency and NIH scientists – who are credited as co-inventors.
Because those payments enrich the agency and its scientists, each and every royalty payment could be a potential conflict of interest and needs disclosure.
