Re: “For Sale: Your Health and the Integrity of the Medical Profession

How about Johnson and Johnson who uses their profitable "non" profit foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to give "grant" money for lobbying for laws and funding "research" that moves their products? Case in point. The writer speaks of Big Tobacco but what of RWJF's funding of how to market smoking cessation? RWJF owns 42,343,491 shares of Johnson and Johnson stock. Johnson and Johnson sells Nicoderm, Nicoderm CQ, Nicorette gum and Nicorette mints. They're behind the war on obesity. They push to tax pop with sugar; J&J owns Splenda. They have a new "diet" cure going before the FDA this fall. RWJF funds "fellows" (they pay them up to $165,000 a year) and plants these "fellows" with U.S. Senators, Representatives and Congressional Committees. First Lady Obama is the spokeswoman on childhood obesity. SHE has a fellow assigned to her. They discount any research that was funded by Big Tobacco but where's the discounting (and outrage) of funding by the "control" du jours, such as Tobacco CONTROL? It's all corrupt. It's about the almighty dollar and making CEOs, boards and shareholders money. As the economy worsens, so does their greed and corruption. Who do you ask to investigate? RWJF has inflitrated Congress. http://www.jpands.org/vol15no2/corresponde… Scroll to "Private Foundations"
