Have you ever heard of these statistics in the news? Probably not because there’s an embarrassing reason behind them. The MMR vaccine that children are given has been proven to cause autism and pharmaceutical companies advertise heavily on news stations. Not only this, the government is moving toward a mandatory vaccination policy and they don’t want their boat rocked.
The video below is even more shocking because it shows how a woman’s life was ruined by getting a simple flu vaccine.
It’s not my intent to say that vaccination is a black and white issue and reject it offhand. Instead, I would like to refute the belief of medical decision makers that a person’s body is not his own. They should not have the authority to make someone take a vaccine with its inherent risks.
When we unwrap the issue of vaccinations for a critical look, other issues buried inside come into view. One of which is the fact that if you or your child is injured in any way by a vaccine, you can’t sue the pharmaceutical company that made it. Congress passed a law which takes away your right of due process in this situation. Another issue is the fact that not many people know about the problem of autism in the US. If it were common knowledge, the public outcry would force the government to move away from their agenda of mandatory vaccination.
It’s surprising to learn of the favor that the pharmaceutical companies have with the government. Did you know that our laws keep the price of pharmaceuticals 10 times higher in the US than in Canada? And it’s illegal for Canadian suppliers to advertise in the US about their cheaper prices. Even if an American knew how to get a Canadian drug it would be illegal for him to buy it from there. As for funding of pharmaceutical research, the government takes a central role. An entity called the NIH controls most of this funding and they cut it off when doctors speak out against vaccination policies or if they favor natural cures over drugs. Plus, antagonism towards the NIH agenda could get a doctor blacklisted from working at universities.
Friends, don’t get me wrong. I’m a proponent of man made drugs because many of our lives depend on their effectiveness. But by exposing the bias that the government has towards pharmaceutical companies, you discover what should be inside your investment portfolio. Pharma is big and always will be so make it a point to consider pharmaceuticals as an option if the company’s hands are clean of vaccination production. A blue chip pharmaceutical stock can reap big dividends, especially if you’ve done your homework in regards to what’s in its pipeline. And that’s the big secret to success; knowing what’s in the pipeline. By perusing annual reports, you can become acquainted with some drugs but not all of them. Revealing everything would be damaging so the pharmas show just enough to gain investors.
For those of you who don’t have a pharmaceutical background, I will go into the nuances of what a pipeline is. Basically, it’s a progression of clinical trials starting with animals (phase 1 and 2) and then moving into humans (phase 3). Combined, these three phases last about 10 years but there is another phase at the end which is when the FDA decides whether to approve a drug. This takes an extra 1-2 years and in some extreme cases, 4 years. That’s the gamble right there. If you know that a drug has just entered into the approval phase, usually you can expect the stock to rise in a short while when it’s approved. But you might be waiting a long time which can be painful. Also, if a drug is rejected you will have waited a long time for nothing.
Rest assured that investing in pharma is not as big of an investment gamble as it might seem because like I said, there are secret drugs that go through trials. And as always is the case, each drug goes through trials under a number of indications. So for example, in phase 1 it has been learned that a cancer fighting taxane has no ill effects on animals, it will go through multiple tests in phase 2 for different uses. Maybe this taxane has potential as an antidepressant or a salve to fight psoriasis. So in total, there would be 3 sections of testing throughout phase 2 and phase 3. If these three indications were approved by the FDA it would be the same as having 3 drugs to unleash to the world.
As I spoke about in the beginning of this post, when a drug goes to market it brings in BIG money. Since Canada can’t compete with prices, Americans pay a premium which brings in the necessity to have health insurance. So now we’re seeing an unusual picture of how wealth is made and distributed in America. This system will always exist, even past the point of making millions of our children autistic. When choosing to invest in pharma choose the companies that build our families up, not break them down.
