About That Big Pharma “Managed Death” Email

Earlier this week you read about how Big Pharma makes billions on managing your death through deadly prescription drugs.

Let me clarify one point.

Not all doctors are pill pushers.

I mentioned that the majority have been led (by Big-Pharma and Insurance giants) to follow the protocol for profitability and not medicine.

I am very fortunate to have an old school doctor who actually spends time with his patients and is hesitant to play the Insurance game.  However, he’s in the minority.

Anyway, to illustrate a point about taking drugs that aren’t good for you, I recently saw a commercial that made me laugh out loud.

It was about Prevnar 13. *

Supposedly it’s to help keep you from getting the flu and is geared for people over 50.

What made me laugh was when they named the side effects.

According to

In adults aged 50 years and older, common side effects of Prevnar 13 include:

  • fatigue,

  • tired feeling,

  • headache,

  • muscle pain,

  • joint pain,

  • decreased appetite,

  • injection site reactions (pain, redness, swelling, tenderness, or a hard lump),

  • limitation of arm movement,

  • chills,

  • skin rash,

  • tired feeling,

  • drowsiness,

  • sleeping more or less than usual,

  • vomiting,

  • diarrhea, or

  • low grade fever (102 degrees or less).

In infants and toddlers, common side effects of Prevnar 13 include the above, and:

  • crying,

  • fussiness, or

  • irritability.


You’d be better off getting the flu than the side effects.

If you took time to learn about side effects of most drugs you wouldn’t be so eager to take them.

Ahhh, lest I forget, you’ll tell me: “But, But, my doctor told me to take them.”

I’ll let this issue alone (for now) but point out that there have been numerous doctors arrested (and some mysteriously murdered) who’ve come out against the drug companies over vaccines.

Read about it in our December “…In Plain English” newsletter.

(Note* In the 4th quarter of 2017 Pfizer’s leading vaccine (Prevenar 13) generated over $1.53 BILLION in sales…and that’s only one quarter).
