Allen Carr's Easyway To Stop Smoking Supports AllTrials Campaign
Campaign to expose how more expensive, less effective, more dangerous drugs become prescribed because of withheld study results.
Allen Carr's Easyway To Stop Smoking Organisation Announces Support For All Trials Campaign
Doctor, journalist, and author Ben Goldacre is an absolute hero! He’s worked tirelessly to try to force the disclosure of all studies on all drugs prescribed by doctors. These 2 minute movies will tell you exactly what you need to know about this international scandal that’s costing millions of lives. They show how more expensive, less effective, more dangerous drugs become prescribed because of withheld study results.
Allen Carr's Easyway has been ignored by much of the anti-tobacco establishment in favour of ineffective treatments for smoking cessation (nicotine patches and gum for example) which became widely available on prescription in spite of the fact that in practice (according to a study by Cancer Research UK) they have a 95% failure rate! These films explain how that kind of BAD SCIENCE has occured. Tragically the same BAD SCIENCE will be used to label e-cigarettes as ‘medicine’. The pharmaceutical industry have been getting away with this for decades – it’s time to end it.
John Dicey, Worldwide Managing Director of Allen Carr's Easyway organisation comments "We'd like all friends and supporters of our organisation to please support AllTrials" www.alltrials.net
Withholding results costs lives – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PU5ilpz31g
The results of a 1980s clinical trial on heart drug Lorcainide were never published. Doctors didn’t know that more people died in the trial who were given Lorcainide than who were taking the placebo. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people died avoidably because they were prescribed drugs in the same class.

Dr Ben Goldacre prescribed the antidepressant Reboxetine for a patient but says he was “misled.” Results from trials which showed it was worse than other drugs were withheld, while the smaller number of trials which showed it worked better were published.

The UK Government has spent £424 million stockpiling Tamiflu, an anti-flu treatment, but we still don’t know if this treatment works any better than placebo. Regulators weren’t given information from all the clinical trials done on Tamiflu. The manufacturers of Tamiflu didn’t break any laws by withholding the information.
