The Worst Drug Fraud in History?  Do You Still Trust Them with Your Life?

Story at-a-glance -

  • Drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has preliminarily agreed to a $3 billion settlement -- the largest federal drug-company settlement to date -- over the illegal and fraudulent sales and marketing practices of several of its drugs, including the diabetes drug Avandia
  • The settlement is the culmination of a nearly decade-long federal investigation into GSK’s business practices, including marketing a handful of its drugs for unapproved uses, influencing doctors, potential Medicaid reimbursement fraud, and illegal activity concerning the development and marketing of the Avandia diabetes drug
  • GSK spent 11 years covering up trial data that showed Avandia was a risky drug for the heart; the company not only hid negative study data, but also manipulated study data to fit their agenda
  • Despite engaging in felony criminal behavior, GlaxoSmithKline and other drug companies are only penalized with fines that amount to little more than a slap on the wrist; individuals involved in these crimes are not held accountable and thus the fraud continues
  • Drug companies are among the biggest corporate criminals and felons in the United States; taking control of your health can help you avoid the need for their products and keep you safely out of their web of deceit
