Medical Whistleblower will be interviewing Former Eli Lilly executive, Dr. John Virapen Ph.D. He will be revealing his knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry as an industry insider. This is especially important in the wake of the recent $1.4 billion settlement from drug maker, Eli Lilly. John Virapen used to be the executive director of the Swedish branch of Eli Lilly & Company, one of the biggest internationally active pharmaceutical companies. Dr. John Virapen has been working for more than 35 years for the pharmaceutical industry, as manager for several companies such as Eli-Lilly and Novo Nordisk. He lives now in Germany and has written a book, Side Effects: Death which is currently a best seller in Europe about his experiences which is available in English, Swedish and German. While working for Eli Lilly, John Virapen engaged in the development of aggressive marketing strategies, and can speak about massive corruption within the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical companies invest the considerable amount of 35,000 Euro per year and physician to get the physicians to prescribe their products. John Virapen says that more than 75 percent of leading scientists in the field of medicine are paid for by the pharmaceutical industry. In some cases corruption prevailed in the approval and marketing of drugs. John Virapen writes that illnesses are made up by the pharmaceutical industry and specifically marketed to enhance sales and market shares for the companies in question. Pharmaceutical companies increasingly target children. There have been years of withheld information regarding the adverse side effects of pharmaceuticals promoted by Eli Lilly, including the possible role of Prozac in inducing suicide and homicide. The signs of drug induced violence and suicidality were there since Prozac was first tested in pre-marketing trials.
