Watch “The Truth about Pills and Pregnancy”

BBC Panorama video with reporter Shelley Jofre

Many women have to take medicines while pregnant. But could they be risking the health of their unborn child? Decades after the Thalidomide scandal shocked the world, Panorama reveals how another medicine has damaged far more children. Drugs cannot be tested on pregnant women for ethical reasons, so doctors do not know if most prescription drugs are safe for the unborn child, and the system set up to monitor side-effects appears to be flawed. As evidence emerges that some common antidepressants are linked to heart defects in babies, the programme asks how much we really know about the safety of medicines women take while pregnant

    • The program is very interesting but unfortunately does not mention the DES drug tragedy. Once again DES is ignored. WHY? It would have been such a great opportunity. What’s wrong with DES? Is it because with DES, the Media can’t show upsetting photos of children born with no arms or legs like the victims of Thalidomide, or newborn babies who have undergone traumatic heart surgery because of the effects associated with the antidepressant drug their mum took during pregnancy? Is it because DES is the very first drug scandal which should have prevented many others to happen? All victims of drugs prescribed during pregnancy should join forces! The stories are all the same and highlights the same failure of our health system and the government response to the devastating consequences of these drugs. DES, Thalidomide, epilepsy drug Epilim, antidepressants … how many more victims are needed to put in place safeguards to protect mothers and their unborn child?

Will tomorrow’s Doctors gain hands-on Experience and treat Patients with Dignity?

Doctors setting bad example to medical students

The teaching practices of senior doctors are contributing to a decline in patient care, according to new research. The findings of Cardiff University and the University of Dundee suggest that medical students are being pushed to do things they are uncomfortable with – but they feel unable to challenge their superiors when in this position. Surveys and interviews with hundreds of British medical students show that some senior doctors are setting a far from good example.

The UK Government considering IVF Babies Creation with Three Genetic Parents

Should genetically modified human embryos be allowed?

Great Britain is on the path to allow a technique to create babies using DNA from three people in a bid to help prevent couples passing on rare genetic diseases. The technique, which scientists say would not create a ‘three parent child’, helps prevent women with faulty mitochondria, the energy source in a cell, from passing on to their babies defects that can result in such diseases as muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, heart problems and mental retardation. The debate is causing controversy as Parliament gears up to making a decision on whether the technique should be made legal. Opponents say it is unethical and could set the UK on a “slippery slope”.

Cut Poison Burn Official Trailer

The Pharma Business of Cancer Treatment

Controversial, eye opening, and sometimes heartbreaking documentary puts the business of cancer treatment under the microscope. A MUST SEE, it will change your life.

  • Video by Nehststudios, Published on 10 May 2011
  • Cut Poison Burn is a searing film that illuminates the grim truth about America’s so-called War on Cancer. This thought-provoking documentary takes on the forces that have conspired to thwart meaningful advances in cancer research and treatment over the past century. These forces include the federal government (in its effort to label and persecute innovators as quacks), drug companies eager to suppress alternative treatments and powerful industry organizations that place profit over human lives. The story centers on the Navarros, a family struggling to keep their young son alive. The war between the Navarro Family and the FDA is perhaps this country’s greatest evidence as to why there should be medical freedom. As the personal meets the political, we see how the FDA holds a vise-like grip on treatment options. Heart-wrenching and informative, the film ultimately expresses hope that we can create a new paradigm of prevention, medical freedom and acceptance of highly-tailored therapies to usher in a more enlightened era. Over 12 years, 150 hours of footage and interviews with top oncologists, researchers, policy-makers, homeopaths and patients carry the story and reveal that we are on the brink of disaster and in desperate need of reform. “
