Pharmaceutical Company Found Guilty of Fuelling Opioid Epidemic But Sponsored Skeptics Continue Attacks on Safe Alternatives

“An Oklahoma judge has found Johnson & Johnson liable in a lawsuit claiming the giant drug maker helped fuel the deadly opioid epidemic in the state.
Opioids were involved in almost 400,000 overdose deaths from 1999 to 2017, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since 2000, some 6,000 Oklahomans have died from opioid overdoses, according to the state’s lawyers.”

Even though the pharmaceutical industry has paid billions in fines over the years for failures and deceptions that have caused serious injuries and death, the pharmaceutical sponsored skeptic organizations and skeptics like Edzard Ernst spread outright lies about the false dangers of alternatives. They try to take the heat off the failures and dangers of drugs by smearing safe alternatives like homeopathy. They even go to the point of going to government organizations and falsely claiming alternatives are dangerous. They say nothing or a minimum about their sponsors.

One such skeptic Edzard Ernst attempts to present himself as an expert which most skeptics do. As a means of puffing himself up and making it seemed like he knows something about homeopathy, he claimed he was a homeopath and switched to allopathic medicine when homeopathy did not work. This has been proven to be an outright lie. He has had no training in homeopathy.

Unfortunately skeptics, like lemmings, support only pharmaceutical company generated science as if it was the holy grail.

Homeopathy has been proven to be very effective in pain relief and is non-addictive.

  1. I remember a so called study by Ernst where he went through the records of dead patients. The few records where the person was taking multiple drugs, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery but also a homeopathic remedy or vitamin he would say the person died from the homeopathic remedy or vitamin! That kind of sloppy science is what the skeptics are all about. To prove their bias and prejudice they will do anything.

    400,000 deaths from conventional drugs has no impact on their activities. I don’t hear a peep out of them about that.

  2. You won’t find any proponents of scientific skepticism claiming that Big Pharma doesn’t have issues. However, to claim that homeopathy is a safe alternative is incorrect because there is no high quality evidence to demonstrate that it works. For something to be an alternative I would expect it to work almost as well as the thing it is an alternative for.

    But you know this and your dishonest repetition of your wilful ignorance is just sad.

  3. Thank you for showing empathy. I’m sorry that you have been fed such a false narrative about it. Homeopathy has an over 200 year record of safety and efficacy. Homeopaths are dedicated to helping sick people get better and are very effective at doing that.

    And the issue is really about being SILENT about corporate medicine’s dangers just because they APPEAR to satisfy evidence based philosophy.

    A few examples: Opioids and Thalidomide passed all the gold standards of evidenced based philosophy yet caused and still cause untold suffering and death. Could there be more to it than that?
