(NaturalNews) A prominent psychiatric doctor who promoted antidepressant drugs has been stripped of his chairmanship at Emory University (again!) after investigators from Senator Charles Grassley's office uncovered secret financial ties to Big Pharma.

Dr. Charles B. Nemeroff received $800,000 from GlaxoSmithKline, but failed to accurately report the income, say investigators from Grassley's office. When Emory University learned of the lapse in professional ethics, it stripped Nemeroff of his valuable chairmanship and permanently barred him from his post.

Notably, he was not fired from his job, nor barred from practicing psychiatric medicine, which just goes to show you that the practice of doctors maintaining financial ties to drug companies is openly tolerated by both state medical authorities and Emory University.

Dr. Nemeroff is barred from applying for grants from the National Institutes of Health for two years.

Nemeroff's forays into undisclosed financial gain are nothing new: In 2006, he was caught in similar under-the-table financial gains involving a medical device manufacturer named Cyberonics. (http://www.naturalnews.com/020213.html)

In that scandal, the Wall Street Journal exposed his secret financial ties. Nemeroff resigned the chairmanship he held in 2006 shortly after the WSJ article surfaced.

You want to know what's really interesting about all this? Nemeroff then apparently regained his chairmanship sometime between 2006 and 2008 because in this most recently scandal, he was fired from the same position he resigned from in 2006!

So here's how the medical industry really works, folks: Doctors secretly get paid all this drug money from pharmaceutical companies. When they get caught, they never get fired. Instead, they simply resign or are fired from a position that they get right back after the bad publicity clears!

In other words, the resignations and job firings are just another fabricated con job in the medical industry. And if you want to learn even more about the real character of these doctors who push antidepressant and psychiatric medications, check this out:

Nemeroff also served as the editor of the medical journal Depression and Anxiety. The journal paid Nemeroff $3,000 to write a pro-pharma article about Wyeth's antidepressant drug Effexor, but Nemeroff turned around and double-billed Emory University another $3,000 for the same article! (Double dipping, anyone?)

That's not all: According to the WSJ, 14 other Emory University doctors also received money from the Depression and Anxiety journal to write articles about Effector. The halls of Emory University must be lined with dollars, huh?

Let me just state the obvious here, that in my own opinion, Emory University is functioning a front for a gang of criminal pharmaceutical racketeers who whore out their advocacy of drugs to the highest Big Pharma bidder.

These are the leaders of modern medicine, folks! These are the ones setting the agenda, writing articles in medical journals, defining new diseases and getting quoted in the press! And it is only by the slimmest of chances that they got caught at all. The medical industry is utterly incapable of policing itself and, in fact, it welcomes these people back into key institutions even after they've been caught lying about the hundreds of thousands of dollars they secretly received from drug companies!

Bottom line? You can't trust universities, you can't trust medical journals, and you can't trust medical researchers or doctors. Any of them could have secret financial ties to drug companies, and in exchange for all that cash, they push dangerous drugs and fictitious diseases onto YOU and your children.

Some scam, huh? Don't you find it amazing that Eliot Spitzer lost his entire career for screwing some prostitutes while the top psychiatric researchers keep their jobs even after screwing over their own patients?

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
