(NaturalNews) Gwen Olsen, an ex-pharmaceutical sales representative, is using her personal experience and insider knowledge to turn the tables on Big Pharma and tell people the disturbing and disheartening truth about the highly corrupt industry: it's only after the money, not the health of its patients. Gwen, a 2007 Human Rights Award recipient, is a dedicated mental health activist, public speaker, and writer committed to child and mental health advocacy; her specialties include promoting the cessation of America's over medication of its children and teens. It's hard to imagine that this same woman was once a successful pharmaceutical sales rep for more than 15 years, working for many of the industry's big name manufacturers. "We (were) being trained to misinform people," said Gwen.

Now on a personal, passionate quest to wake up as many people as possible to the deception of the pharmaceutical industry, Gwen's research emphasizes her concerns about the increasingly prevalent use of prescription drugs and the deadly effects that these drugs can have. "There is no such thing as a safe drug," said Gwen in a video interview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4bYng7X7Kk).

Gwen's astounding admissions in another video interview on Natural News (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=2935933D692D0D...) dispels the myth that Big Pharma is in the business of healing or helping cure disease -- instead, the industry is out to regulate illness, manage symptoms, and keep people trapped in a lethal cycle of chemical dependency, says Gwen.

In the video, Gwen explains that drugs -- psychiatric drugs in particular -- are meant to encourage people to remain customers of the pharmaceutical industry. After all, if Big Pharma intended to help cure disease, they would be putting themselves out of business.

"I don't want people thinking that I am a conspiracy theorist, because in fact, there is no theory behind what I'm telling you, it's all provable... what I'm saying is provable is, the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want to cure people," said Gwen in the video.

The confessions of a Pharma veteran


The Rx Reformer recently released a book, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher(http://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Drug-Pushe...), which provides considerable insider knowledge of the serious dangers that lie within the game of the pharmaceutical industry and the disinformation that has jeopardized lives. Her book presents many admissions, some deeply personal, of what she discovered and observed throughout her career with Big Pharma, during which she was encouraged to minimize the side effects of the drugs she was selling when speaking to doctors.

Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher is a strikingly candid and much-needed wake-up call about the flawed U.S. health care system, which is -- with good reason -- currently ranked last among 19 industrialized nations worldwide. You can read more about the book on Gwen's site: http://www.gwenolsen.com

As Gwen's book reveals to readers, more than 180,000 people die annually from the effects of legal drugs. "By the time a drug is approved and it hits the general population, we don't even know 50% of the side effects involved," said Gwen. In the same interview, Gwen explains that there is no medical evidence required for psychiatrists who wish to prescribe their patients drugs. This broadens the potential patient population considerably, allowing Big Pharma a lucrative advantage over an increasingly diseased and medicated public.

How the Rx Reformer came into existence

Gwen's self-proclaimed calling as the "Rx Reformer" evolved not only from extensive personal experiences obtained during the years she spent working for major drug companies, but a shocking event that occurred within her own family.

The health of Gwen's niece, Megan Blanchard, a bright pre-med student, quickly deteriorated through the onset of drug-induced addiction, withdrawal, mental illness, and depression. This painful suffering resulted in Meg's unfortunate and tragic suicide, and Gwen quickly realized that her niece was not the first to painfully suffer from the consequences of doctor prescribed pharmaceuticals, nor would she be the last. In her book, Gwen writes: "Compassion is what Meg really needed, not more drugs."

"There are thousands and thousands of people like that out there -- and they need a voice," said Gwen. "I serve as that voice."

Gwen's disillusionment with the industry -- her anger at the immense deceit and misinformation she witnessed taking place within the profitable alliance between medical doctors and Big Pharma -- led her to get out of pharmaceutical sales and pursue a new vocation: spreading truth.

"I had been used in the game, I literally was the one at the front lines, harming people -- unintentionally -- but I was responsible, and I carry a burden for that now," said Gwen.

Gwen has now made it her moral obligation, or what she has labeled her "spiritual calling," to educate others on what she learned the hard way about the abundance of harmful drugs being given to a credulous population.
