  1. I love this network and this lady is amazing!!!!!!! New subscriber. Much much better than mass western media and I am a New Yorker!

  2. That makes them the biggest criminal scam in the history of the world. They clearly control media, politics, law enforcement, and academia. Incredible.

  3. The vaccine mandates in the recent days have proven the same. Despite their lowest efficacy rate (10/20 percent) the companies like Pfizer are pressganging the governments into jabbing our little kids. I can realize I am living in a world ruled by greed and avarice.

  4. Years ago I heard an interview on NPR about a medical scam perpetrated by a major US manufacturer. It is a highly recognizable name and most of you have purchased many of their products. The interviewee had written a book called Deadly Medicine. The book is now out of print but still available from used book stores. The book describes how a non pharmaceutical manufacturer tried to get into the very lucrative field of pharmaceuticals. They were trying to develop a medication to combat atrial fibrillation as I recall. Their scientist worked on developing pharmaceutical "stews", hoping to find one that would work. The book describes the process where this new medicine was endorsed by big names in academia and medicine against opposing views from a minority in the medical community. The opposition didn't have the money or the name recognition of the big shots and were drowned out or threatened. The FDA, our pharmaceutical "watchdog" was pressured to fast track approve this new medicine, and did so even over the objections of some of their own advisors. (Sound familiar?) The end of the story is that in the end unknown numbers of people probably died from taking this drug, and it was pulled from the market. This situation got a one day hearing in congress, but nobody was interested. I am reminded of this story every time I hear of another drug being advertised on tv, that then gets recalled and is the subject of law suits.

  5. Now this is where you’re missing the point . Even without OxyContin , patients would have been on Morphine for moderate to severe pain. OxyContin is a more tolerable version of Morphine. So what do you propose ? Patients suffer with excruciating pain or take marshmallows? The issue is not with the nature of the product it’s about the rules and system that govern the indiscriminate prescription and abuse in practice .

  6. ANDREAS KALCKER . LOOK UP IN BOLIVIA HEALTH IS NOT AN ISSUE . HAHAHAAAAHAHAA CDS CDS , CDS, CDS, LOOK , LOOK , LOOK , UP ,

  7. Big Pharma has always been money conscious and supported by governments. Many drugs have side effects and can destroy your organs. Big Pharma are the biggest demons in this world.

  8. Those unscrupulous money hungry Pharmas .The truths are the truths. Expose them GOD never failed his righteous people to expose wrong dealings and wronged actions.. We need more of Madam Palki Sharma all over the world. Well researched and factual neutral journalism for the people. She deserves a medal for her works. She is the best. .πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’ŸπŸ§‘πŸ–€πŸ’™πŸ’πŸ’–β€πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’œ

  9. The system is called USA Predatory Capitalism.
    This boy is indeed heinous but he is only one of millions who have been indoctrinated into a mentality and culture of the so called 1%.

  10. Thank you Palki, your team and Gravitas WION for reporting so excellently. Respect, support, gratitude and appreciation from South Africa.

  11. You want real news listen to this lady you won't get it in the United States the meteor here is controlled by Congress and their corruption

  12. This whole system plays with the fear and emotions of people to make the money.
    Not only Pharmaceutical company can be blamed politicians and doctors are equally responsible.

  13. They are making pain patients suffer by not giving them pain medication. I had a letter stating from a pain specialist to take off my brother's pain medication would cause him harm and the primary doctor still after stating to him and giving him the letter is taking him off his pain medications. He has chronic regional pain syndrome. Bent over with scoliosis. Doctors are not standing up for The pain patients because they are afraid of DEA. Where are all the Pain advocates???? Elderly are screaming in pain at rest homes and hospitals. This needs to stop.

  14. Okay now we can sign a petition to make this mafia out of this world.. And the questions isss.. HOWπŸ˜“
