Deadly thalidomide STILL being used as chemo drug despite deformed babies and horrific birth defects


(NaturalNews) It has been more than 50 years now since German drug giant
Grunenthal unleashed for medical use the infamous horror drug known as
thalidomide in 1957. The controversial morning sickness medication was
quickly withdrawn worldwide in 1961 after it was discovered that
thousands of babies whose mothers were exposed to it lost their limbs,
developed other serious birth defects, or died. But despite its
incredible dangers, thalidomide is still in use today as a chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients.

As reported by BBC News
and several other sources, the city of Stolberg in Germany, where
Grunenthal is based, recently unveiled a bronze memorial in
commemoration of the tens of thousands of young children that were born
with birth defects or died as a result of thalidomide. And part of the
terms of the project included requiring Grunenthal to participate in
both the funding and presentation of the statue, which features a girl
with disfigured feet and no arms, and an empty chair. (http://www.npr.org)

Grunenthal
reluctantly accepted the proposal, as the company really had no choice,
and agreed to issue a formal apology for the damage caused by
thalidomide 50 years after its horrific side-effects first began to
emerge. But this apology, which was soft-peddled and virtually
meaningless, is hardly adequate as thousands of thalidomide's living
victims still struggle daily to care for themselves and their loved
ones, as well as pay their exorbitant medical bills.

Grunenthal 'apology' completely whitewashes company's deliberate denial of thalidomide dangers

A
recent settlement made by British and Australian thalidomide
distributor Diageo that resulted in a multimillion dollar payout to a
thalidomide victim uncovered that Grunenthal actually knew two years before thalidomide was pulled from the market
that the drug caused birth defects. And yet in his apology, which was
really more of a public relations whitewash than anything else,
Grunenthal CEO Harald Stock denied that his company had any prior
knowledge about thalidomide's dangers.

Adding to this crafty lie, Stock also failed to even apologize
for the damage caused by thalidomide, which was supposed the be the
whole point of the company's involvement in the memorial unveiling.
Instead, Stock sought forgiveness from the public for his company's
failure to "find a way of reaching out to [them] from human being to
human being," whatever that means. He even tried to claim that
Grunenthal's silence on the matter for more than 50 years was because
the company was in "shock" -- nice.

The validity of such statements is laughable, considering the fact that numerous outside sources have confirmed that Grunenthal knew all along about thalidomide's gruesome side-effects,
but did nothing about them. The company apparently thought the issue
would eventually just be swept under the rug. But now that it has
reemerged in the limelight, Grunenthal decided to carefully piece
together a canned "apology" that neither apologizes nor admits any
responsibility for the damage caused by its deadly thalidomide drug.

"In
March 1961, the (Grunenthal) board could have sensibly decided to
withdraw thalidomide from the market in light of claims of birth defects
and nerve damage to people taking it," wrote Geoff Adams-Spink, a
former BBC journalist who himself suffers multiple impairments as a result of thalidomide, in a recent CNN
editorial. "Instead, [the company] decided to carry on regardless --
there was far too much money to be made from peddling its toxic 'wonder
drug.'"

Thalidomide's origins traced back to Nazi death camps

It is also worth noting that, according to numerous credible sources, thalidomide got its start in Nazi death camps. In his editorial piece, Adams-Spink explains how two solicitors working on behalf of thalidomide survivors discovered that thalidomide was tested on Nazi prisoners in Poland during the Holocaust. Convicted Nazi war criminal Otto Ambros, who was Hitler's chief chemical weapons expert, also served on Grunenthal's board in the 1950s. (http://www.heraldsun.com.au)

"This
is a company that has evil written into its DNA," Dr. Martin Johnson, a
respected historian and Director of the U.K.-based Thalidomide Trust, is quoted as saying by Adams-Spink. (http://www.cnn.com)

Deadly thalidomide still used today in Western medicine

None
of this is really all that surprising when you consider the fact, for
every individual baby exposed to thalidomide that survived, albeit with
permanent birth defects, 10 others died as a result of exposure to thalidomide.
Grunenthal, after all, has a long legacy of serving the interests of
the Nazi Party -- thalidomide's creator, Heinrich Muckter, was also a
Nazi -- so it is not surprising that the company knowingly dispensed
deadly drugs, and later tried to cover it up.

This is illustrated in that thalidomide was never properly safety tested or proven to be safe prior to its release, despite what Grunenthal now claims. Documents exposing this truth conveniently went missing in the 1970s when prosecutors actively began to pursue Grunenthal on behalf of thalidomide's many victims. (http://www.cnn.com)

And
though it was never approved in the U.S. as a treatment for morning
sickness like it was in many other countries at the time, thalidomide is actually still used today in the U.S.
as a chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients. The very same drug
that killed countless children and maimed many others is now being
regularly injected into those suffering from cancer, as well as
administered as a treatment for leprosy. (http://www.chemocare.com/bio/thalidomide.asp)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA), of course, is the entity responsible for allowing thalidomide to
reemerge as a supposedly safe and effective drug treatment. While a
memorial commemorating the tragedy unleashed by thalidomide in the 1950s
is being established in Europe, the FDA is actively promoting the use of thalidomide in the U.S., where more research is now being conducted on potential new "uses" for this deadly drug. (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/thalidomide/HQ01507)
