Happy Independence Day weekend! This is the most important holiday to MedShadow because we celebrate our ongoing independence from pharmaceutical influence. We are one of the few, free, nonprofit sites that refuses pharma money because we are committed to giving you the unbiased, honest facts of health that you need to keep yourself and your family safer from medical harm. Misleading information, even lies, from drug companies is nothing new and a reality across our nation’s history. In the winter of 1905, Mark Twain himself sent the world’s most eloquent angry letter to a drug company selling bogus patent medicine…
Malcharist is a book about how pharmaceutical companies allegedly can harm patients with their drugs and get away with it, while profiting mightily from their unethical ways.
As recently as last fall, I was dead set against getting the COVID-19 vaccine. I thought the trials were rushed, the science too new and the chance that I would be harmed if I got COVID-19, small. I emphasized my stance in the blog 6 Factors to Consider About a COVID-19 Vaccine. In December and January of 2020, a lot of information became available about the various vaccines, the testing and history of the messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines, which both Pfizer and Moderna used. It was then I realized the science is not new. Medical researchers have been working on…
Like you, I’ve heard a lot about the Frontline Doctors organization that materialized, seemingly, out of nowhere to stand on the Supreme Court steps in July and declare that much of the COVID-19 information that the CDC (Centers for Disease Prevention and Treatment), the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and individual state authorities were giving out was a lie. While garnering headlines, the Frontline Doctors produced its breakout star, emergency room physician and attorney Simone Gold, MD. Because a good friend asked my opinion of Gold’s recent video, I spent an hour watching her YouTube lecture. Although the video has…
Q. A visitor to www.MedShadow.org asked: “I’ve used Retin-A daily as an anti-aging cream for 15 or more years. Is this safe?” A: Probably yes. Remember, we at MedShadow are not doctors. We are a group of consumers and patients who sift through the internet and talk to doctors and other healthcare providers to dig a little deeper and uncover more information than what is commonly known about a prescription drug. The FDA has approved Retin-A, generic name tretinoin, for “acne vulgaris” and nothing else. On the Retin-A label it states: “The safety and efficacy of the long-term use of…
Within the next year, millions of people will receive one of three, or more, new COVID-19 vaccines. Two of them will likely be mRNA-based vaccines, never before approved for human vaccine use. With technology that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed, we could track COVID-19 vaccine recipients and gather massive amounts of data comparing in the real world which vaccine(s) is the most effective, for how long, with which subpopulations and how safe? But we’ll only know that if we act now. Are we about to squander this historic opportunity? The CDC has an app to…
The giddy excitement generated by Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccination interim results of 90% efficacy on November 11 was only boosted higher by Moderna’s announcement on November 16 of 95% efficacy for its vaccination.
Every drug has a side effect. For that reason, a drug that doesn’t work must be removed from use. Drugs like Makena, which don’t work and may harm patients, is the reason that both MedShadow and DES Action USA exist. And when it comes to Makena specifically, we’re thrilled to announce we have made massive progress! Thanks to more than a thousand of your signatures on our petition, the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) recommended on October 5th that the drug be removed from the market. Makena is a hormone given to pregnant women who are told…
What kind of person would volunteer to be a test subject for the COVID-19 vaccination? What motivates her or him?
