Médicaments dangereux : à qui la faute ?

Ce que les missions d’enquête ne vous diront jamais

Sang contaminé, hormone de croissance, Distilbène, cérivastatine, Vioxx, Acomplia, Avandia, Di-Antalvic, vaccins contre l’hépatite B, la grippe ou le cancer de l’utérus : les gens n’en peuvent plus de constater que rien ne change malgré l’accumulation des scandales pharmaceutiques, et qu’en plus, tout semble s’aggraver dans une ambiance révoltante d’impunité.

Il s’agit donc de dire aux citoyens qu’ils ont raison d’être inquiets, de leur montrer que les réformes qu’on leur propose n’ont d’autre objectif que d’aggraver les conditions qui ont rendu possibles tous ces scandales, de les convaincre enfin qu’ils n’ont aucun motif sérieux de retrouver la confiance. Bref : de leur donner des éléments de fait suffisants pour inspirer leur protestation et alimenter leur résistance.

On partira le plus souvent d’expériences concrètes dont l’interprétation saute déjà aux yeux du plus profane, pour en tirer matière à une réflexion plus abstraite, tout en essayant de caractériser le rôle des principaux acteurs à l’œuvre : les médecins, les experts, les journalistes, les fabricants.

Les affaires associées à des médicaments dangereux se succèdent et ébranlent toujours plus la confiance des consommateurs dans l’industrie pharmaceutique.

Intersex Awareness Day

#Intersex rights are human rights. Let’s make the world safe for intersex babies and children

“Today is #IntersexAwarenessDay, celebrated in honor of the first known intersex protest, held at a medical clinic in Boston exactly twenty years ago, on October 26th. Although we’ve made a lot of progress since then, let’s face it: we still need a lot more awareness about intersex people.”
