Thinking about getting a flu shot?

From Infowars

Shane Morgan and his wife Monique decided to get flu shots on November 2, believing it would help protect them and young family members ahead of the busy holiday season. But what they thought was a pro-active measure turned to horror when Shane began losing feeling in his arms and legs. “About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” Monique explained to KSNV. “I never dreamed that any of this could ever happen,” Shane told local media.

Doctors at Centennial Hills Hospital diagnosed Shane with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a known vaccine adverse reaction characterized by the CDC as an “autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.” Monique blames the flu shot for triggering the adverse reaction, which has left Shane in need of a ventilator and a feeding tube. “It’s the last time anyone in my family will ever get one,” she said, adding Shane would rather have the flu “ten to one” than suffer the debilitating disorder.

Despite Shane’s horrific vaccine injury, a Nevada health official interviewed by KSNV still encouraged people to get the flu shot, saying Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a “rare” condition. Guillain-Barré Syndrome, or GBS, has also been reported in patients who received the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine, Gardasil (HPV), and M-M-R II injections, to name a few.

Top-profiting US medtech firm
linked to 9,000+ deaths from faulty implants

From RT

A major US-based medtech company’s faulty equipment could be linked to thousands of casualties and hundreds of thousands of injuries, and they are not the only culprits in the $400bn industry. Medtech giant Medtronic, officially headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, but operating from the US, could be responsible for 9,300 deaths and 292,000 injuries in the US alone, according a study published on Sunday. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) report claims that one in five of the company’s medical implants have tested faulty, resulting in a massive amount of deaths and injuries while company profits soared. The ICIJ claims that “patients around the world have become unwitting test subjects for new medical technology”, as unsafe and insufficiently tested implants are rushed to market.

The information was revealed as a part of a year-long study called “The Implant Files”, which involved 250 journalists researching problems in the $400bn industry. Despite the intimate and serious nature of products that are literally implanted into the human body, the report uncovered a disturbing lack of regulation regarding medical implants, including hip replacements, insulin injectors and vaginal meshes. Some implants were placed into patients without any testing whatsoever, with journalists working on the study claiming that human beings were essentially used as Guinea pigs for testing new products in a race for profits.

Medtronic, one of the world’s Medtronic, one of the world’s largest producers of insulin injectors, devices that manage chronic pain and Parkinson's disease treatments was the most serious perpetrator uncovered in the study. The FDA has responded to the accusations saying that more complaints were filed against Medtronic as a natural consequence of their being the largest distributor of such products, a fact which ignores that Medtronic’s products were twice as likely to test faulty in comparison with their competitors. Their insulin pumps alone have been connected to nearly 2,600 deaths in the US.

Found With "Multiple Blunt Force Injuries"

What are the chances of someone
surviving while working to lower drug prices?

From ZeroHedge

The November 1 death of Daniel Best, a former pharmaceutical executive in charge of efforts to lower prescription drug prices for the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), has been ruled a suicide, according to the Washington D.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, which noted that Best died of "multiple blunt force injuries," according to Medical Examiner on Thursday said Best died from "multiple blunt force injuries" and it ruled his death a suicide. It would not release further information. In announcing his death, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said the 49-year-old former CVSHealth and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals executive agreed to work at HHS "out of a desire to serve the American people by making health care more affordable." Best, a senior adviser to HHS Secretary Alex Azar, was found "unresponsive" at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1 near the garage door exit of a Navy Yard apartment building, which is located approximately a mile south of the Capitol. He was pronounced dead at the scene by medical personnel. A drug industry insider, Best worked for over a decade as an executive for several companies, including 12 years at Pfizer, Universal American, MemberHealth and CVS Caremark Corporation, where he made just over $500,000 per year negotiating drug prices for seniors.

His March appointment drew the ire of President Trump's opponents, who accused his administration of becoming too close with the drug industry. Best was advising Azar - a former pharma executive and lobbyist, on drug pricing. "He brought his deep expertise and passion to this task with great humility and collegiality," said Azar in a statement following Best's death. "All of us who served with Dan at HHS and in the administration mourn his passing and extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife Lisa and the entire Best family at this difficult time." In May, Stat reported that Best was a seasoned negotiator - however questions remained on "whether he'll advocate for his former colleagues in the PBM world, or if, in the words of a lobbyist, he'll show the public "where the bodies are buried"" Best has stepped into the government in the midst of a vicious battle between PBMs and drug makers, each blaming the other for the high cost of prescription drugs. PBMs point out that the drug companies set the price. Drug makers say that PBMs effectively force the prices up through the complex rebate system. Best has an inside view into the situation. “The most important thing I learned about the PBM industry is that every player serves a critical role in managing this complex system and we wouldn’t be talking about lowering prescription drug prices today unless PBMs had a role to play,” Best said in an email, through an HHS spokesperson. -Stat Former co-workers described Best as a nice guy, yet tough negotiator according to the Epoch Times: "He’s got a real nice personality," said former MemberHealth colleague Chuck Spinelli. "He’s not a jerk, he’s not overbearing. He’s approachable, and pharma liked him. They appreciated working with him. He was very transparent. He was very honest. He didn’t play any games." Best, who grew up in Erie Pennsylvania, is survived by his wife Lisa and three children.
