Medical Authorities Continue to Block Effective Covid Treatment

The conflict of interest between clinical trials of drugs that determine their effectiveness and safety and the pharmaceutical industry that funds most of the trials is astonishing.  Yet nothing is done about it.  Two-thirds of the Federal Food and Drug Administration’s budget for evaluating prescription drugs comes from the industry that the FDA regulates.  In other words, the regulator is financed by the entity that it is supposed to regulate.

“Human Drugs regulatory activities account for 33 percent of FDA’s budget; 65 percent of these activities are paid for by industry user fees (Oct 18, 2019).” — 

It is this corrupt conflict of interest that has blocked the HCQ treatment of Covid-19. Hundreds of thousands of people have died and many others have been left with impaired health, because Big Pharma used its influence over the FDA, NIH, CDC, and WHO to keep the pandemic alive until a vaccine could be rushed to market.  In other words, profit, not health, has been the goal.
