Who is the second highest teaching hospital to accept Big Pharma payoffs?

You guessed it. Massachusetts General Hospital! This CORPORATION, which has no interest in your health, runs various other hospitals including Children’s Hospital in Boston, Brigham and Women’s, McLean Hospital, and is also branching out into western Massachusetts, taking over Cooley Dickinson in Northampton, and also hospitals in New Hampshire and that I know of, Maine as well.

The number one on the list (as of right now) is City of Hope National Medical Center in California.

Cleveland Clinic is third, not surprising!

This data comes from ProPublica, which is a group of investigative journalists. Let’s hear it for writing. Words are powerful.

Do you want to be a guinea pig for Big Pharma? Agreeably, drugs are useful, but not when we’re lied to about them. Know why these companies are so desperate to uphold the lies and push the ads, pamphlets, multimedia hype, and any propaganda to push their agenda? Big Money is at stake!

Stop supporting these places. And if you are a nonprofit, you should refuse funding from sources such as MGH. I don’t trust nonprofits funded by hospitals, and I see this as sell-out. They are not true nonprofits anymore, since they are accepting donations from corporations which are laden with their own biases and agenda. Sad to say I have seen nonprofits go straight down the toilet bowl after accepting corporate money.

  1. The University of Michigan medical school was apparently the first to kick the drug company lobbyists out, at least from the medical school before the doctors have even graduated, though the drug companies are still allowed to peddle wares at the University of Michigan hospital. Doctors are rewarded with kickbacks for prescribing this or that, allowing the corruption of medicine. Kudos for whistle blowing on these hospitals. Your work is all the more important as so few are doing it, but soon these drug companies are going to have to find a way to make an honest living.
