I’ll admit… I’ve never quite understood Big Pharma’s marketing plan.
I mean, you’d think that killing their own customers would be bad for business.
But that doesn’t stop these fat cats from trying new… and horrible… ways to shove dangerous drugs down your throat.
Now, they’re at it again. And that’s BIG trouble if you or someone you love suffers from kidney disease.
I’ve told you before about a common diabetes drug called Invokana (canagliflozin).
Let me give you some of the low-lights…
For starters, Invokana has been linked to an increased risk of cancer and diabetic ketoacidosis (dangerously high blood acid).
Just Google “Invokana lawsuit” and see what comes up…
Secondly, there have been Invokana trials that showed an increased risk of amputation with using the drug.
Cancer… ketoacidosis… amputation… who in their right mind would take this drug?
To top it all off, the good ol’ FDA slapped a “black box” warning label on the packaging, meant to showcase how serious the potential risks are.
This stuff should have been OFF the market years ago… but that would involve the FDA having a heart (or brains).
And here’s the ultimate kicker: A bunch of researchers are now trying to claim that Invokana can help with kidney disease… and it’s probably a matter of time before the FDA allows it to be marketed for those with kidney issues!
Simply outstanding. This is basically the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of medications, and yet the FDA wants to approve it for anything and everything.
It’s absolutely shocking to me that they’re trying to peddle Invokana for diabetes and kidney disease when it also has been linked to cancer, ketoacidosis, and loss of limbs.
How in the world do they think this is a good idea?
Listen, there are lots of other meds and supplements on the market for both diabetes and kidney support.
This is one drug that NOBODY needs.
That won’t stop Big Pharma from trying to force it on us. But whatever you do, stay far, far away from this stuff.
Lots of people have learned the hard way that Invokana is bad news.
