“Drug manufacturer Eli Lilly settles $1.42 billion in Zyprexa suit. Pleads guilty to criminal conduct for pushing lethal psychiatric drug Zyprexa?on children and the elderly; pays largest fine in Department of Justice history.”
From Dr. Gary Kohls:
Friends, this story @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_iXApBeT5s is just the tip of the iceberg, because all the other?psychopharmaceutical companies?have also been?marketing, so-called “atypical anti-psychotic” drugs?(AKA major tranquilizers) to kids and the elderly.
These dangerous IQ-destroying and Parkinsonism/diabetes/obesity-inducing drugs (that?usually cause serious withdrawal symptoms [not “the mental illness ‘coming back'”] when discontinued) include (besides Eli Lilly’s Zyprexa):?Clozaril (Novartis), Seroquel (AstraZeneca), Geodon (Pfizer), Risperdal (Janssen) and?Abilify (Bristol-Myers Squibb), not to mention the older infamous so-called “typical antipsychotics” Haldol (Ortho-McNeil) and the innumerable knock-offs of the first,?now-discredited, so-called “anti-schizophrenia” drug, Thorazine (GlaxoSmithKline), which was first developed as an industrial dye.
Included among these Thorazine knock-offs are this short list: Compazine (GlaxoSmithKline), Mellaril (Novartis) and Prolixin (Bristol-Myers Squibb).
There are a multitude of other lawsuits?against all of the above major drug companies, but?these lawsuits?are censored out of?the corporate media partly because of the adverse effects on the stock market valuations and partly because the mainstream media accepts from them so many billions of dollars of advertising money per year, and you know the two old saws, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” and “he who pays the piper, calls the tune.”
Those who might have been fooled into investing in these publicly-traded companies might want to consider dumping them before they each have huge judgments awarded against them also. Gary

|Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter # 359Whistle-blower’s perspective on Eli Lilly’s Zyprexa case: Jail time for Eli Lilly Executives (After all they execute such criminals in China) ? Nine whistle-blowers will split $78 million to $100 million of the settlement. Rudolph, 60, says the settlement against Lilly will only go so far in changing business practices. He wants jail time for wrongdoing by companies and executives.|
Zyprexa sales were about $39 billion since FDA approval in 1996. Lilly did plead to a single misdemeanor of misbranding of a drug.
“You have to remember, with Zyprexa,” he said, “people lost their lives.”
One could fill thousands of pages with messages like these. The PharmacoMafia is one of the most dishonest, immoral conglomerates of all time. They suppress negative studies and lie about most of their drugs. Even the NEJM, which has been called by a former editor, at least complicit with drug industry distortions, carried an article in its January 8, 2009 issue “The Neurontin Legacy-Marketing through Misinformation.”? The author concludes “Will our profession soon feel compelled to advocate for such actions (an independent research institute) to preserve our integrity, our social contract, and ultimately our privileges?”
My answer, not while you are owned by equally dishonest hospitals and insurance companies who are all interested only in profit!? Physicians gave up integrity when they bowed to the Third Parties—hospitals, lawyers, insurance companies, the government and the PharmacoMafia. Third Party Rape has been the law of the land for at least 44 years. It was formally birthed with Medicare, after which everything in the Medical System became greedy.
