Ex-Pharma Sales Reps talks about manipulating doctors to sell more drugs.
In this video Gwen discusses some of the tactics used by some pharmaceutical sales reps to get doctors to prescribe their drugs.
This included tactics like minimizing harmful side effects to doctors, presenting statistics in a slanted way, accusing anyone that speaks out against psychiatric drugs as being a Scientologist, psychological profiling of doctors to best know how to convince them to prescribe your drugs, etc.
Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a pharmaceutical sales rep working for such healthcare giants as Johnson & Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Abbott Laboratories. She enjoyed a successful, fast-paced career until several conscious-altering experiences began awakening her to the dangers lurking in every American medicine cabinet. Her most poignant lessons, however, came as both victim and survivor of life-threatening adverse drug reactions. After leaving pharmaceutical sales in 2000, Gwen worked in the natural foods industry first as an Account Manager for Nature's Way, and then as a Regional Sales Manager for Gaia Herbs. She is currently a writer, speaker, and natural health consultant.
The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market! Gwen Olsen learned firsthand the danger that lurks in every American's medicine cabinet, working in the pharmaceutical industry. But her most poignant education would come as a victim and, ultimately, as a survivor.

DIABETES DRUG RECALL: The prevalent Safety Fears for drugs show cause for their risks to health outweigh their suppressive symptom effects. People take heed.
Avandia is one of the most popular drugs, taken by Diabetic patients. However, major health risks associated with the drug, including death started surfacing from the year 2000. Since then there have been a spate of lawsuits filed against GlaxoSmithKline, who is the manufacturer of the drug.
Avandia was actually a drug prescribed as an alternative to a diabetes drug called Rezulin, which was found to have serious health risks. Unfortunately, health risks, including death risk started surfacing in case of Avandia as well. Several civic groups have also denied support to this drug due to the harm it can cause. Likewise, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning alert about the potential harm that this drug can cause. Hence, any patient facing any damage or risks as an outcome of Avandia can seek legal aid.
