A Short History Of Big Pharma Colonialism In India

It may surprise you that the pharmaceutical industry is not always motivated purely by a high purpose of discovering new drugs to protect humanity from diseases and viruses. This article will expose the dark side of the pharmaceutical industry—an industry that many believe to be among the most corrupt of all industries.

A Short History Of Big Pharma Colonialism In India

Critics have often described the machinations of Big Pharma in developing countries as “Pharma-Colonialism”, and Robert F. Kennedy argues that Africa (and other regions in the Global South) have been a “Pharma colony for over a century”. We will look at a few examples of Big Pharma colonialism in India. Many of the cases described below are documented in Robert F. Kennedy’s excellent book The Real Anthony Fauci.

Clinical drug trials

Big Pharma’s main source of income is the sale of drugs, which are often of dubious benefit to the consumer. Before a drug can be marketed, it has to undergo clinical trials. Pharmaceutical drugs can have very severe side-effects, and it is not surprising that taking part in clinical drug trials can be deadly.

Drug trials are exported to the Global South which serve as a cost-effective location where pharmaceutical companies can avoid strict regulations.

Big Pharma has used India as a dumping ground for their clinical trials with highly dangerous products. The mainstream media does sometimes report that Indians are used as “human guinea pigs” to undergo trials with drugs that can be lethal or lead to permanent injuries. They are paid a pittance, some brainwashed Indians even participate in these studies because they believe it is “a humanitarian effort”.

These drug trials are often deadly. At least a few thousand “human guinea pigs” have died, many more injured.1 Linsey McGoey reports:

Since 2005, the number of clinical trials in India has ballooned to 1,600 studies involving over 150,000 research subjects. Health campaigners in India have mounted a vigorous campaign calling for stricter regulation of an industry that has seen over 2,000 research participants die between 2007 and 2013. … India’s health minister recently reported to the Indian parliament that to date, less than twenty-five family members have received compensation from foreign drug companies for loss of life. Families received an average of about $3,000 per individual – a pittance.2

The corruption is pervasive. A parliamentary panel report found all parties involved of gross ethical violations — the ministry, Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and those who conducted the clinical trials.

And it has been getting worse. In 2005, India relaxed its laws governing drug trials, and multinational pharmaceutical companies have been keen to take advantage of the new legal situation. The Drugs and the Cosmetics Act was amended in 2005 to permit multinational pharmaceutical companies to conduct Phase II clinical trials on Indians in India (which explains the rise in deaths in the drug trials since 2005).3 It goes without saying that phase II clinical trials are often very risky and damaging to one’s health.

Corruption

A study from India has found that nearly 98 percent of doctors in the country have been influenced by promotional activities from Big Pharma companies. This means that the prescriptions they have given to their patients were influenced by Big Pharma marketing.4

According to the Medical Council of India, there exist codes that govern the profession that prohibits them from accepting bribes but unfortunately less than 20% of doctors abide by the ethical codes prescribed by the MCI, and the union government led by PM Modi has planned a surgical strike on this nexus.5

Medications from Ayurvedic traditional medicine are slandered and marginalized by Big Pharma and their shills in media and academia, because they may not be patentable and only generate low profits. Ayurvedic medicine, which has not been corrupted by either patents or profit-maximising capitalism, is designed to cure the root causes of diseases rather than simply use “one size fits all” pharmaceutical drugs to keep the symptoms under control.

Big Pharma is also busy in India with identifying the active ingredients in Ayurvedic treatments, so they can patent those molecules. Then they can use trade agreements and political pressure to extract royalties from Indian doctors for using these “new” Big Pharma medications.

Pollution and environmental damage

Activities of the pharmaceutical industry in India have been linked to pollution and environmental damage, such as to Western pharmaceutical companies whose suppliers are polluting water in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.6

Perhaps the reader wonders whether the infamous Bhopal disaster, the world’s worst industrial disaster, was also a Big Pharma crime. But it involved a pesticide plant. The culprit was Big Agriculture or Big Chemical, not Big Pharma.

Capturing of Indian medical institutions by Big Pharma

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. noted that Africa and Asia have been Pharma colonies for over a century. And the furniture of the Big Pharma empire are the Vaccines. Thus, vaccination programs can justify interventions in developing countries as a tool for social and political control. Vaccines are weaponized as a foreign policy tool with deep connections to the Intelligence Apparatus. And international organizations such as the WHO have tried to dictate, coerce and bully Indian medical institutions.

Kennedy writes about the deep interest of spy agencies and the deep state in Big Pharma:

By 2010, US spy agencies were demonstrating a growing interest in vaccines as a foreign policy instrument. Just as the Cold War, and later on, the “War on Terror,” had rationalized US military presence across the world as a bulwark against brushfire nationalist rebellions purportedly orchestrated by a communist monolith, vaccination programs could justify interventions in developing countries with high disease burdens as a tool for social and political control. In 2010, the WHO pronounced biosecurity as the centerpiece of its approach for managing global risks. That same month, as Bill Gates delivered his Decade of Vaccines speech at the UN, biosecurity—the war on microbes—was already eclipsing the “War on Islamic Terrorism” as the preferred driver of the security state cartel.

Kennedy shows how international and national medical institutions have been hijacked and captured and are made to serve Big Pharma’s interests. Vandana Shiva highlights the role of Bill Gates:

Bill Gates has hijacked the WHO and transformed it into an instrument of personal power that he wields for the cynical purpose of increasing pharmaceutical profits. He has single-handedly destroyed the infrastructure of public health globally. He has privatized our health systems and our food systems to serve his own purposes.

The Gates Foundation is one of many NGOs that serve the agenda of Big Pharma colonialsim in the Global South. Jeremy Loffredo and Michele Greenstein noted in 2020:

“The Gates Foundation has already effectively privatized the international body charged with creating health policy, transforming it into a vehicle for corporate dominance. It has facilitated the dumping of toxic products onto the people of the Global South, and even used the world’s poor as guinea pigs for drug experiments. . . . The Gates Foundation’s influence over public health policy is practically contingent on ensuring that safety regulations and other government functions are weak enough to be circumvented. It therefore operates against the independence of nation states and as a vehicle for Western capital.”

The Modi government was also concerned about the Gates Foundation’s extensive ties with Big Pharma. An explosive report showed how India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) had been bought off by the Gates Foundation. The report stated,

“The NTAGI secretariat has been moved out of the ministry to the office of Public Health Foundation of India and the 32 staff members in that secretariat draw their salaries from the BMGF (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation). There is a clear conflict of interest — on one hand, the BMGF funds the secretariat that is the highest decision making body in vaccines and, on the other, it partners the pharma industry in GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization). This is unacceptable.”‘Conflict of interest’: NHM panel raises questions on Bill Gates Foundation

Even more concerning are recent reports that governments across the world are about to hand over the keys to future pandemic responses to the (corrupt and captured) WHO. Dr Mike Yeadon warned that “It’s a mad idea, but since certain individuals & nations have pretty much taken over the WHO, I think it’s a certainty that, if this new treaty gets signed, within a few years at most, a “public health emergency of International concern” will be declared, and all currently sovereign nations will become controlled subsidiaries of WHO.”

A Short History Of Big Pharma Colonialism In India 2

Population control

Throughout history, Big Pharma has often been closely intertwined with eugenics. Because “eugenics” is nowadays a bad word, they will never admit it openly. You will hear them talk about “population control” and “reproductive health”, words which have been used as a euphemism for eugenics, but they will never utter the E Word.

Vaccines represent the ideal form of population control because of the blind public faith in vaccination prevents most people from ever questioning sterilization done under the guise of “public health.”

This documentary makes the case that the Bill Gates agenda is being driven by a eugenicist ideology. Another documentary shows how the WHO has sponsored tetanus vaccine programs. In these programs, the vaccines were “laced with a hormone that causes miscarriages and infertility.”

Fertility-regulating vaccines are being tested in India. These vaccines have the potential to make women permanently infertile. The main carriers being used in the prototype vaccines were the diphtheria toxoid DT and the tetanus toxoid TT, which are the very vaccinations that are being implemented throughout developing countries today.

The business of population control is strongly entwined with Big Pharma. In India, perhaps the most infamous case of population control are the forced mass sterilization measures during the Emergency. Unsurprisingly, this was done at the behest of Western international organizations. David Frum noted:

Forced sterilisation was by far the most calamitous exercise undertaken during the Emergency. The IMF and World Bank had periodically shared their fears with New Delhi about the uncontrolled rise in population levels. India’s democracy was a hurdle: no government could possibly enact laws limiting the number of children a couple could have without incurring punishment at the ballot box. But with democracy suspended, the IMF and World Bank encouraged Indira to pursue the programme with renewed vigour.7

The Vaccine Wars

In the opium wars, opium was weaponized for geopolitical, imperialistic designs.

But in today’s world, vaccines or the war on microbes have been weaponized to promote corporate imperialism rooted in the ideology of biosecurity.

Vaccines are more complicated than opium. At least with opium, the addict does not need much persuasion to buy the product. As William Burroughs dryly observed: “Junk is the ideal product… the ultimate merchandise. No sales talk necessary. The client will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy.”

With vaccines, it is not as easy. But the pro-vaccine “sales talk” has been propagated trough all media channels, with the result that the “vaccine client” will crawl through the mainstream-media sewer and beg to be injected with the vaccine. So now there are missionaries (“journalists”) preaching the benefits of the vaccines to the masses. The missionaries are trained by the high priests (“doctors”) and their legitimacy derives from God (“The Science”). They fight wars against infidelism and heathenism (“vaccine hesitancy”). Our society has evolved. Yesterday’s missionaries and priests are today’s journalists and doctors, yesterday we were pushing opium to the colored people of Asia, today we are pushing dangerous vaccines to the whole world.

Here we look at a few examples of the vaccine wars.

Smallpox vaccines

The legend of smallpox eradication, as told in numerous textbooks, claims that mass vaccinations were the sole reason that smallpox was eradicated. This view has been challenged, and the vaccine itself has considerable risks.

Dr. Charles Nichols of Boston gave this indictment :

In India, according to an official return presented to the British House of Commons by Viscount Morley, there have been, during 30 years, 1877 to 1906, 3,344,325 deaths from smallpox of persons presumably vaccinated, for vaccination is universally enforced in India….In each and every community where vaccination ceases and strict sanitation is substituted, smallpox disappears. There are no exceptions to this.8

Rockeller Foundation in India

In the early 1950s, the Rockefeller Foundation conducted fertility studies in India. They studied 8,000 tribal people in Punjab to determine whether contraceptive tablets could dramatically reduce fertility rates. Over the next two decades, the Rockefeller Foundation conducted frequent anti-fertility programs in India.

According to Linsey McGoey:

Today, the Khanna project is widely seen, as historian Matthew Connolly puts it, as an example of ‘American social science at its most hubristic’… The Khanna study took place in the early 1950s. Its failure – the fact that its results confirmed the exact opposite of what researchers hoped – led the Rockefeller Foundation to distance itself from its methodology, but not from its objectives. In years ahead, the foundation funded numerous anti-fertility programmes in India and elsewhere, earning the growing animosity of physicians and poverty activists who felt that the foundation’s efforts to control population growth ignored the realities of the persistent poverty that makes large families so indispensable to Indian villagers.9

Polio Vaccination

Big Pharma’s mass vaccinations against polio are often held up as a shining example of a successful Big Pharma victory against viruses. And the critics are slandered as evil anti-vaxxers.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. summarizes the history of this Gates campaign. He writes that “Gates declared war on polio in India and implemented a shock-and-awe strategy to exterminate those last few cases”. Bill Gates took control of India’s vaccine oversight panel, the National Advisory Board (NAB), and “under his control, the NAB mandated an astonishing barrage of fifty polio vaccines (up from five) for each child in several key Indian provinces before they reached the age of five”.10

But what was the result of the mass vaccination campaign? Vaccine-derived poliovirus—a mutation of the virus contained in the oral vaccine—came back to bite Gates, and the unfortunate populations of the nations that submitted to his prescriptions.  A devastating vaccine-strain epidemic of acute flaccid myelitis—a disease formerly classified as “polio”— paralyzed 491,000 children in these provinces between 2000 and 2017, in direct proportion to the number of polio vaccines that Dr. Gates’s minions administered in each area. There was also a huge increase of Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP), which is “clinically indistinguishable from polio but twice as deadly,” according to Keith Van Haren, child neurologist at the Stanford School of Medicine. Van Haren explains that Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) is a polite term for polio: “It actually looks just like polio, but that term really freaks out the public-health people.”11

In 2012, the British Medical Journal wryly noted that polio eradication in India “has been achieved by renaming the disease.”12

Neetu Vashishi and Jacob Puliyel confirm that there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis:

“In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. In regions where children are vaccinated multiple times, the non-polio acute flaccid paralysis rate is up to 35 times higher than international norms. The non-polio acute flaccid paralysis rate in a given year correlates to the cumulative doses of oral polio vaccine received in the previous 3 years.”13

It appears that Indian authorities, at long last, learned a lesson, for Kennedy notes,

That year, the disillusioned Indian government dialed back Gates’s vaccine regimen and evicted Gates’s cronies and PIs from the NAB. Polio paralysis rates dropped precipitously. After squandering half of its total budget on the polio epidemic—at Gates’s direction—the WHO reluctantly admitted that the global polio explosion is predominantly vaccine strain, meaning it is happening because of Gates’s vaccine program. The most frightening epidemics in Congo, the Philippines, and Afghanistan are all linked to the vaccines he promoted. Polio had disappeared altogether from each of those nations until Gates reintroduced the dreaded disease with his vaccine… Other vaccine-strain polio outbreaks occurred in China, Egypt, Haiti, and Malaysia. .. As the British Medical Journal reported in 2012, “the most recent mass polio vaccination programs [in India], fueled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, resulted in increased cases [of polio].”14

Hepatitis B vaccination

Robert F. Kennedy Jr described how the conspiracy by GAVI, WHO, and UNICEF to force India to mandate hepatitis B vaccines is yet another illustration of how, under Bill Gates’s hegemony, vaccine industry profits trump public health:

The WHO initially recommended hepatitis B vaccination only in countries with high incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the species of liver cancer that the vaccine promises to abolish. Since HCC is rare in India, the country did not qualify under WHO’s initial criteria… Notwithstanding such concerns about the high costs and meager benefits of the vaccine, Gates, through his surrogates at GAVI, PATH, and WHO successfully arm-twisted the Indian government in 2007–8 into introducing the hepatitis B vaccines. GAVI pushed WHO to change the official policy to a universal recommendation, meaning that even countries with low disease burdens would be required to vaccinate. GAVI hoped this would reopen the Indian markets. WHO obligingly changed its recommendation to include universal immunization with hepatitis B vaccine for all countries, even those where HCC was not a problem. The Indian government obediently adopted WHO’s recommendation. 15

Many Indian academics and public health officials condemned the government’s hepatitis B mandates, citing India’s extremely low burden from HCC. Independent scientists and Indian physicians argued against immunizing 25 million babies each year to theoretically prevent 5,000 cases of HCC. Anticancer vaccines are poor performers, and there is not even meager proof that the vaccine can prevent any cancers.16

Haemophilus Influenzae B (Hib) and pentavalent vaccine

Initially the WHO recommended Hib vaccines only in nations suffering a grave disease burden. Robert F. Kennedy shows how Big Pharma captured and corrupted India’s medical institutions to get around such restrictions:

To overcome such meddling from India’s prying medical community, in 2005 Gates funded, through GAVI, a four-year, $37 million study of mass vaccination with Hib jabs in Bangladesh intending to showcase the vaccine’s benefits. GAVI’s Bangladesh study backfired, showing no advantage from Hib vaccination. In response, a formidable coterie of superstar international health experts—all of them, coincidentally, from Gates-funded organizations WHO, GAVI, UNICEF, USAID, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and CDC—issued a deceitful proclamation that fraudulently claimed that the Bangladesh study proved a Hib jab protects children from “significant burden of life-threatening pneumonia and meningitis.” Prominent Indian doctors responded with outraged commentaries in the British Medical Journal and the Indian Journal of Medical Research, describing the Gates-funded study as a devious artifice. Based on Gates’s orchestrated guile, WHO in 2006 took the official position that the “Hib vaccine should be included in all routine immunization programmes.” Once again, the Indian government caved in to Gates and mandated Hib vaccines in India, where Hib invasive disease was nearly nonexistent… In self-congratulatory articles, GAVI boasted triumphantly of its role in rescuing the Hib vaccine project in India after the Bangladesh study proved the vaccine a worthless waste of money. GAVI’s article notes that, since there was little burden from Hib disease in India, it had been a great challenge to gin up support for WHO’s recommendation. GAVI bragged—in technocratic argot—that it twisted WHO’s arm to revise WHO’s Hib vaccine policy from a weak permissive statement to a firm recommendation calling for universal vaccine introduction in all countries. WHO’s volte-face dragooned reticent Indian health officials to recommend the useless vaccine.17

One prominent critic of this Big Pharma intervention was Dr. Puliyel. He complained that this incident “highlights the influence GAVI and other vaccine manufacturer-funded organizations like the ‘Hib Initiative’ have on the WHO and how it impacts vaccine uptake internationally.” Puliyel protested that the Gates Foundation has privatized and monetized international public health policy, transforming WHO recommendations into effective mandates and compelling poor countries to pay annual tribute to foreign Pharma overlords. According to him India and other Asian nations are now effectively compelled to administer the vaccine and to increase Hib uptake targets, “irrespective of an individual country’s disease burden, notwithstanding of natural immunity attained within the country against the disease, and not taking into account the rights of sovereign States to decide how they use their limited resources.” He added that “The mandate and wisdom of issuing such a directive, for a disease that has little potential of becoming a pandemic, needs to be questioned.” Dr. Puliyel’s commentary in the BMJ denounced Gates and GAVI for pushing Hib vaccine in developing countries and for falsifying the characterization of the research data in their press release: “The directive has come after a number of failed attempts to convince the scientific community of the need for this vaccine in Asia.” Puliyel described the HiB saga as “a case study on the visible and invisible pressures brought to bear on governments to deploy expensive new vaccines.”18

Despite Gates’s victory in winning recommendations for Hib and hepatitis B in India, actual uptake rates were disappointing. Defying the WHO and Indian Health Ministry recommendations, Indian doctors were reluctant to administer these vaccines.

So Big Pharma used another ruse:

To overcome this problem, Pharma introduced a diabolically cunning strategy to euthanize three birds with one stone. The companies withdrew their flagging Hib and hepatitis B vaccines and reissued a new concoction that combined those immunizations with the DTP, which, despite its popularity, had become another sandbag on Big Pharma’s profit ambitions… The Gates cabal solved these profiteering problems by brewing up a new (five diseases) vaccine by mixing the DTP, Hib, and hepatitis B formulas in a single syringe. That new combination became a “new vaccine.” The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI) and WHO christened the novel, untested, and unlicensed concoction the “Pentavalent Vaccine” and recommended its use in developing countries to replace the DTP vaccine. Compliant Indian health ministries then phased out the DTP, which had been popular with doctors. Now, if any physician or individual wanted DTP, their only choice would be the Pentavalent vaccine.19

The combination vaccine, marketed as “safe and effective”, was deadly. Kennedy writes that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not licensed the combination vaccine for either safety or efficacy, and developed countries do not use it. Furthermore, the pentavalent vaccine is life-threatening to infants. Before its Indian debut, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Vietnam previewed the pentavalent jab. In each of these countries, unexplained deaths followed immunization… Bhutan suspended the immunization program in October 2009 after five cases of encephalopathy/encephalitis occurred following the vaccine. WHO persuaded health officials to resume the program, insisting that viral meningoencephalitis caused the deaths. Bhutan obeyed and four infants died. … Sri Lanka unleashed the pentavalent vaccine in January 2008 and then suspended the program four months later after five babies died. Under pressure from WHO, Sri Lanka reintroduced the vaccine in 2010. Between 2010 and 2012, there were fourteen additional deaths following the vaccine, making the total number of deaths in Sri Lanka nineteen. Vietnam introduced the pentavalent jab in June 2010 and suspended the jab in May 2013, after twenty-seven infant deaths. India introduced pentavalent vaccine in December 2011. Up to the first quarter of 2013, health officials reported eighty-three serious Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI). Twenty-one babies have died in India following immunization with the pentavalent vaccine. Gates and WHO simply trivialize the deaths as sad coincidences or collateral damage. The vaccine has effectively reduced the incidence of Hib disease in India. However, there has been a proportionate increase in non-Hib strains of H. influenzae, including non-serotypable strains, causing invasive disease in the post-Hib vaccine era. As usual, there was no accounting.20

HPV Vaccine and the “Decade of Vaccines”

In January of 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates used the World Economic Forum at Davos to announce a staggering $10 billion commitment to research and develop vaccines for the world’s poorest countries, kicking off what he called a “decade of vaccines.” The Decade of Vaccines kicked off with a Gates-funded HPV vaccine program in India that, according to a government investigation, violated the human rights of the study participants with “gross violations” of consent, and failed to properly report adverse events experienced by the vaccine recipients.

At the beginning of the decade of vaccines, the Gates Foundation (and PATH) funded tests of experimental HPV vaccines, developed by Gates’s partners GlaxoSmithKline and Merck, on 23,000 girls 10–14 years old in the Indian states of Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh. These experiments were part of Gates’s effort to bolster those companies’ sketchy claims that HPV vaccines protect women against cervical cancer that might develop in old age. Gates and his foundation have large investments in both companies. PATH received permission to carry out the trials from the Indian Council of Medical Research.21

Since deaths from cervical cancer occur on average at age 58 in the United States and affect only 1/40,000 women, and since virtually all these deaths are preventable with early detection by Pap smears, any vaccine given to young girls to prevent the low risk of preventable death half a century from now ought to be 100 percent safe—and this vaccine isn’t even close.22

These vaccines are highly risky, and many tribal girls were inured or died:

At least 1,200 of the girls in Gates’s study—1 in 20—suffered severe side effects, including autoimmune and fertility disorders. Seven died—about 10x the US death rates for cervical cancer, which almost never kills the young. India’s Federal Ministry of Health suspended the trials and appointed an expert parliamentary committee to investigate the scandal. Indian government investigators found that Gates-funded researchers at PATH committed pervasive ethical violations: pressuring vulnerable village girls into the trial, bullying illiterate parents, and forging consent forms. Gates provided health insurance for his PATH staff but not to any participants in the trials, and refused medical care to the hundreds of injured girls. The PATH researchers targeted girls at ashram paathshalas (boarding schools for tribal children), to dodge the need to seek parental consent for the shots. They gave the girls “HPV Immunization Cards” that were printed in English, which the girls couldn’t read. They did not tell the girls that they were part of a clinical trial and instead hoodwinked them with the lie that these were “wellness shots” that would guarantee “lifelong protection” against cancer. That was not true. PATH conducted the trials in impoverished rural areas that lacked mechanisms for tracking the adverse effects and had no system for recording major adverse reactions to the vaccines, something legally mandated for large-scale clinical trials…. 23

HPV vaccines are among the most dangerous vaccines ever licensed. Robert F. Kennedy argues that Gates’s strong patronage of HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Cervarix) deepened suspicions that he was weaponizing vaccination against human fertility. Historical drops in fecundity have occurred in every nation with high Gardasil uptake.

Linsey McGoey described how most of the vaccines were given to girls at ashram paathshalas (boarding schools for tribal children), sidestepping the need to seek parental consent for the shots. A later numerical analysis of 100 consent forms collected in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat indicated that signatures of witnesses were absent from sixty-nine of the forms. By 2010, reports of mysterious deaths – four young girls in Andhra Pradesh, and two in Gujarat – fuelled public alarm over the trials. Girls selected for vaccination were given ‘HPV Immunization Cards’ in English, which they couldn’t read… When the trials were underway, health insurance was provided for PATH staff, but not to any participants in the trials… Perhaps most alarming of all, PATH did not implement any system for recording major adverse reactions to the vaccines, known technically as Adverse Events Following Immunization, or AEFIs, something legally mandated for large-scale clinical trials… In 2010, the Indian Council of Medical Ethics admitted that its own ethical protocols had been flouted in permitting the trials.24

Colin Gonsalves noted that the Indian Parliament formed a committee and later came out with a very scathing report. The government officials came out and said, “We shouldn’t have authorized this, were sorry, and we’re not going to allow them again”—and now they are back, doing their same old tricks again.25

Conclusion

The history of Big Pharma colonialism is a truly shocking history, and this article merely scratches the surface. Robert F. Kennedy’s book The Real Anthony Fauci exposes many more of the crimes of the Big Pharma cartel, not just in India, but across the world.

  1. Drug companies only make money if people are sick. “Follow the money”. People who are healthy don’t need doctors, don’t need surgeries, and don’t need medicines.

    Good health is maintained by eating the correct human diet and by avoiding health stealing substances. It should be a diet high in animal fats from healthy animals, which can be obtained with ghee, cheese, eggs, and fish. Foods to avoid are seed oils (rape seed, vegetable, soy bean), sugar, and most refined carbohydrates. Fruits should be eaten in moderation because of their high sugar content. (Sugar is addictive and was the “drug trade” of the 1600-1700s)
