Somewhat like a lobster being slowly boiled as opposed to one dropped straight into boiling water, we have learned to co-exist with and ignore a Perfect Killing Machine in our midst which takes far more lives than the Covid pandemic – without it featuring anywhere in the news.
This is a second post about Stephen O’Neill, after last weeks The Death of Stephen O’Neill and You. These and the following posts will also feature on Stephen’s Voice Facebook page and on SSRIStories.org.
There are related posts from last year in the Spotlight on the Suicides series looking at the role of Politicians, and the gallant Knights who we figure are there to defend us but are mostly defending the powers that be.
Here is a link to the Perfect Killing Machine video and the text is below.
I was an expert at Stephen O’Neill’s inquest, where I hoped the coroner, a decent man I’d been told, might help me with a problem he and his family risk having, just like you and your family risk, and Stephen had, which is that his doctors didn’t hear or see him, just like they won’t hear or see you if something goes wrong on a medicine, they give you.
They won’t hear or see you because they are listening to and looking at something else. The something else is called evidence.
The problem is this so-called evidence is largely Fake and certainly not half as good as the evidence you can provide them from your own experience on treatment. Donald Trump is wrong in thinking that the worst Fake news on earth is directed at him – it centres, in fact, on the drugs a doctor might give you.
Fake is a strong word. But no-one who knows what is going on ever argues with me when I use the word. The regulators who approve drugs – like FDA in the USA or EMA in Europe or MHRA in Britain don’t argue but they say it’s not their job to police this problem.
The makers of the Guidelines that recommend what treatments you and I should be on – almost always the latest and most expensive treatments with no mention of the problems these treatments might cause – don’t argue either. They also say its not their job to police the problem.
Nor do Departments of Health or Chief Medical Officers speaking on behalf of Governments. This is the system they say, what can we do?
Many of these people in government, regulation or guidelines are honourable people. What do I mean by honourable – Well in the UK it means they have Sir or Lady before their names. Even Britain’s famous Spiderwoman – Lady Brenda Hale – isn’t willing to go near this issue.
Doctors, who are probably the best people to police the issue, look at someone like me like they are fit to kill. They don’t want to hear the message even one that is crucial to them staying in a job. If drugs work wonderfully well and are completely safe, we aren’t going to need the expensive pill-dispensing machines that most doctors have become.
What do I mean by Fake? Well close to the entire literature on drugs that are on patent, even in the very best journals like the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA or the Lancet, apparently written by academic doctors from Harvard or Yale, Oxford or London, Paris or Berlin, are in fact written by ghost-writers who work to the pharmaceutical companies who’ve run the trials these articles claim to report on.
Neither the ghosts, nor the academics – some of them distinguished – have seen the data behind these trials. Data that form the basis for Guidelines telling doctors like Stephen O’Neill’s doctors that Sertraline is a marvellous and problem free treatment – even though it can cause homicide, suicide, permanent sexual dysfunction, wreck your vision and your cognitive function and cause a severe withdrawal problem.
The regulators don’t get to see the data either. No-one does. How do I know this – because I’m one of the few people who has seen clinical trial data. If you’re an expert witness in a legal action against a pharmaceutical company – in the US- you see things no-one else gets to see.
In some cases, the data has been entirely made up – the patients don’t exist. One of the handy things about non-existent patients is they never die or have side effects on treatment. The other thing you see is that the problems you report to doctors that companies totally deny could be happening are there in their data that no-one sees.
If you brought a problem to me, I would likely use a drug to treat you rather than offer you non-drug treatments. I’m not anti drugs. But I also think you don’t want to go near a doctor who isn’t a little bit anti-drugs – one who has forgotten that drugs are poisons. Great good can be done with these poisons – just as it can be done with germs – if you have a serious problem but the poisons are generally more dangerous even than germs like the coronavirus that has scared us so silly.
We used to know drugs were poisons and doctors used to use them with care and believe you when you told them about some poisonous effect your treatment had had.
But now doctors can no long report on a poisoning a drug causes to medical journals because the journals are too scared to publish their reports. Doctors are still encouraged to report things to regulators but they only report even serious problems in about 1 in 100 cases. Lately we have also been encouraged to do so too – but regulators essentially bin our reports for all the heed they pay to them.
Doctors have been told your reports are anecdotes – this is exactly the same message that the pedophile liberation front used when faced with claims that the sexual abuse of minors might cause irreparable harm. Anecdotes we were told.
If they had any spine left, doctors could easily change everything by refusing to give you treatments without the full datasets behind these treatments being in the public domain.
But don’t hold your breath that doctors are likely to do anything like this soon – especially now that they are holding themselves out as saving us all from coronavirus when in fact the often ineffective poisons that they have been dishing out by the bucket-load may turn out to have been a major factor in these coronavirus deaths – those dying are those who are on the most meds.
Following Stephen O’Neill’s inquest, I have written to a lot of honourable people hoping to make a difference. I will make the correspondence available on this website and I hope you will use it to help the O’Neill family make a difference.
This is not a matter of holding someone to account – it’s a matter of getting honourable people to realise they can and should change the system.
