Is this really the man who should be regulating the health of the British population??


Dr Ian Hudson - the new head of the MHRA  the drugs agency which regulates the safety of medicines in the UK…

Ian Hudson Is the man in whom we should trust to look after the Nation`s Health .

    Interestingly, the MHRA head- Ian Hudson-   worked for GlaxoSmithKline at one point during his revolving door career. Even more interesting is the fact that Hudson represented GSK in a high-profile Paxil (Seroxat) liability case in the US involving a Paxil-induced murder suicide (the Donald Schell Case). GSK were eventually found guilty and they had to payout millions to the grieving son-in law- Tim Tobin. 

According to a 2001 Guardian article, as a witness (and high level employee) for GSK – 
   Mr Hudson “…argued that the occasional suicide or killing by somebody on Paxil is not sufficient evidence that there is a problem with the drug, considering the millions who take it.
    Tobin is outraged. Virtually all drugs can cause a bad reaction of some sort in a few people, he says. However small the effect is, there is no excuse for not investigating what is happening. “I don’t think they’ve taken a proper look at the whole thing,” he says. “We’re talking about people’s lives. Whether we are statistically significant or not, four people dead is too many as far as I’m concerned.”

Here is Ian Hudson being deposed in 2001, then head of Global Safety at GSK, later a member of the British regulatory apparatus, the MHRA
Q.             Okay. Do you believe that it is possible that Paxil has caused any person, worldwide, to commit an act of homicide or suicide?
A:              I have seen no evidence to suggest that at all.
