The Guardian using the freedom of information act has seen documents that the worlds biggest company Pfizer
warned the ministers that it would take its business abroad, if decisions were not to their liking, and six
companies had a special meeting to push their drugs for among other conditions, Alzheimers disease.
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence ( N.I.C.E ) was set up to decide which drugs were cost effective for use in the N.H.S. and has made several decisions that the new drugs were not effective enough and very pricey,

sent free to doctors because they parrot the drug company line.
The recent case of Dr. Jane Donegan British G.P and immunisation expert, who advocated homeopathy for two
