How deep does the rot go?

Follow the money: conflicts of interest with Fahrie Hassan


If you found my previous post about regulatory capture intriguing, you might like to take a look at this excellent presentation from Fahrie Hassan.

Fahrie gave this presentation at a recent World Council for Health General Assembly. He is a molecular biologist whose own questioning around the use of PCR testing for diagnostic purposes led him to uncovering the tangled web of conflicts of interest across regulatory agencies, scientific journals and research institutions.

I asked Fahrie to look into conflicts of interest relating to both the Together trial – which supposedly demonstrated the ivermectin was not effective but in fact was seriously flawed – and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). He undertook an exhaustive investigation that included other UK organisations such as the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), and what he found is frankly jaw-dropping.

If you know anyone who still believes these agencies have a shred of objectivity, please show them Fahrie’s presentation. The extent of the rot is perhaps greater than any of us could have imagined. As I wrote in my previous post, we need to scrap these agencies now, reclaim our power and become our own self-regulators.
