Sixty percent of clinical drug trial results are not being shared with the public.
Never mind illegal drugs, prescription medication is being increasingly fingered as a major cause of premature death in rich countries. But they continue to be marketed and sold as though the risks were perfectly acceptable. A website called Rxisk.com could change all that.
“No one knows drug side-effects like the person who is taking a pill. Yet your voice is increasingly being silenced. You and your doctor may have been told there is no evidence linking the treatment you are on to the problems you are experiencing. This is because most data on prescription drugs is owned by the multinational pharmaceutical companies who run almost all clinical drug trials (60% of which are never reported). They simply are not sharing data that may affect their bottom lines.”
