[Warning] Doctors BRIBED to Prescribe Deadly Pills
It’s an epidemic that’s killing 35,000 Americans a year.
And now we know EXACTLY who’s to blame.
A new report shows that mainstream doctors are accepting HUGE payouts from makers of deadly opioid painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin.
Nearly $50 million in dirty money has changed hands, all while more and more Americans die.
It’s a sleazy racket… it’s practically bribery… and there’s an easy way to tell if your doctor is on the take.
Just last month, President Trump declared opioid painkillers a major threat to the public health.
But the real threat may be the shady backroom deals that happen before you ever get that first prescription.
A new study from Boston Medical Center showed that a massive number of American doctors are being compensated by the makers of these dangerous and addictive drugs.
Between August 2013 and December 2015, 68,177 doctors were paid a grand total of more than $46 million by opioid manufacturers.
The top 1% of doctors averaged about $50,000 a piece – more than the typical American makes in a year!
Big Pharma can call this money “consulting fees”… or “physician education”… or anything else they want.
But I call it bribery – plain and simple. Our government has known about it for years, and hasn’t done a darned thing to stop it.
If you or a loved one is prescribed an opioid painkiller, you need to do two things, immediately:
- Check Open Payments and Dollars for Docs to see if your physician is listed in the database as having taken payments from Big Pharma companies.
- Consult the doctor about safer alternatives (and there are plenty).
We all know that Big Pharma will stop at nothing to make an extra billion… even if it means destroying a few million lives along the way.
