[Note: This excellent and comprehensive article is so long that I'm separating it into multiple blog posts. The first seven in the series were posted on Stand Together Corvallis Parents blog on 1/20,1/22, 1/24, 1/26,1/28, and 1/30.

It’s almost comical that this needs to be said, but Big Pharma is not your friend.
If you want to dive more into this, I recommend this podcast with Dr. John Abramson, author of Overdosed America, and the upcoming book Sickening. I’ve also heard good things about Bad Pharma, by Ben Goldacre, though full disclosure: I haven’t finished this book.
And this article by Dr. Jason Fung is an excellent introduction into the way in which money from pharmaceutical companies influences doctors.
There is too much that could be said about the pharmaceutical industry, including its role in the opioid epidemic, but I’ll just list some key points about the companies that have produced the vaccines that are currently available in the U.S.
That would be Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Moderna.
Pfizer has paid some of the biggest fines in corporate history. Take a look at the past violations from Pfizer and its subsidiaries: here.
Just some run-of-the-mill headlines for a run-of-the-mill pharmaceutical company
On November 2021, The British Medical Journal (BMJ), a very prestigious medical journal, released a bombshell report from a whistleblower.
Ventavia was hired as a research contractor for the Pfizer vaccine trial, and one of the regional directors for Ventavia reported that the company had falsified data and prematurely unblinded trial participants, among other infractions.
This whistleblower submitted dozens of internal company documents, photos, audio recordings, and emails. Several other employees for Ventavia have also corroborated the findings.
Moreover, the FDA was notified, but did nothing.
You can hear more about it here:
Absolutely shocking but… not that surprising if you look at the history of research integrity from the pharmaceutical industry going back many years…
The BMJ don’t do these investigations and publish them unless they’re very thorough, and this individual, this lady’s allegations, have been independently verified by two other employees…
It’s obviously also very worrying… that it’s not picked up- this should be international news, major international news. You know that Pfizer trial, that pivotal trial… because of that data, millions and millions of people have taken the vaccine.
So the problem is… clinical decisions are being made on incomplete, biased, and in many cases, potentially corrupted data.
The Canadian Covid Care Alliance, a group of independent Canadian scientists and doctors, produced these helpful slides about the Pfizer vaccine and all the problems with its clinical trials: https://www.canadiancovidcarealliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/The-COVID-19-Inoculations-More-Harm-Than-Good-REV-Dec-16-2021.pdf.
Video overview of the slides here.
And here were some Swedish doctors who also had concerns:
Johnson & Johnson
They were being sued for baby powder tainted with asbestos.
Here was a case where they paid $70 million to settle charges for bribing doctors.
Here’s another one, this time for $2.2 billion, for some more minor infractions.
More violations from Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries: here.
Moderna, formerly known as ModeRNA, is relatively new. The company’s only commercial product is its COVID mRNA vaccine.
Before the pandemic, Moderna was in danger of hemorrhaging investors.
And right up until the pandemic, their mRNA technology had had persistent safety problems.
There is little, if any, evidence that those once-well-recognized safety concerns were addressed prior to operation “Warp Speed.”
COVID-19 was a hail-Mary for Moderna.
