A back door way for bans, which sell products, is to GROOM the legislators for various legislation to gain sales for their own pharmaceutical products and to insure insurance coverage of their products. Here’s an example from the Johnson and Johnson Foundation, the foundation being funded by stock holdings of the Johnson and Johnson Company that owns at 250 pharmaceutical companies: www.rwjf.org/reports/grr/037549.htm...

Then what do they do? Grants! Grants are handed out for research, for programs and bans to fit their agenda. One example: http://cleanairquality.blogspot.com/2006/04/f...

There’s the question also of where their people are, some say ‘their students’ and how it affects jobs not only for their own people but for the county as a whole. http://newsblaze.com/story/20110910140202zzzz...

With the obese issue, who owns weight loss products, sugar substitutes and owns bariatric surgery centers? It’s not a hard guess. What you do not hear is what products they make that cause weight gain.

Big money runs deep. Did you know about this: Codex Alimentarius - The Plan to Ban All Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Supplements.

Follow PAST grant money and ‘free fellows’ to other issues! Be sure to thank them for your loss of free choices and where the INDEPENDENT, NON-BIAS research is.

This foundation has a long history of grant making, them pulling the grant and forcing the states to pick of the cost of the program. It works great because all the employees of members of the SEIU. The SEIU has paid lobbyist to insist a program is necessay and cannot be cut, so basic state services are cut to keep a special interest program going. They almost always require something be purchased from Johnson & Johnson the drug company. I think this is called rent seeking legislation.

Why does RWJF want to turn non profit hospitals into for profit hospitals? Is there nothing not for sale in America today?

It's way past time to ban pharma from being a government entity, something they never should have been allowed to do in the first place! Since the Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987 touted as necessary to increase safeguards in the drug distribution system to prevent the introduction and retail sale of substandard, ineffective, or counterfeit drugs, was in reality to get big pharma's drugs out to the public faster, we have now become the guinea pigs, the testing is done on the public. The FDA allowed this at pharma's request. Then the gov't pours OUR money into banning things like smoking on private property when that money could be spent on roads, schools, the poor, and our elderly. Time to toss pharma OUT!

The FDA is funded by the pharmaceutical industry. Now they say they (the FDA) will NOT do testing of drugs, that they will rely on the pharmaceutical testing and results - so YES, we are the 'rats' being tested on. So it ends up, we buy items from the pharmaceutical industry and they in turn use us. As I see it, the FDA is a big scam!...... Would you pay the fox to watch the hen house?

The White House and the FDA and EPA are owned and operated by pharma. Obama was groomed a long time ago for the gig he is currently playing. He was marketed just like a miracle cure for what ails us. What ails us now is laziness and hopelessness.
It is time to fight the enemies of the Constitution, and they ARE from within, just as predicted by our forefathers. They knew that corporate and political greed would meet, and that this evil would destroy freedom and liberty.
This has nothing to do with smoking. This has everything to do with property rights and personal responsibility. It is time for American citizens to shake off their lethargy and start YELLING!

The drug companies are going to be trusted to test new drugs coming onto the market? Isn't that like letting the fox guard the hen house?

I would guess from all the lawsuits advertised on TV they are are puttng drugs they KNOW to be dangerous on the market already.

I refuse to take a prescription from my doctor for any new drug. If a drug has not been on the market for ten years, I will not be their test market and then be a victim of lawyers too. What a racket!
