The Norris Family Sues 11 Drug Companies for Poisoning
The Natural News recently released an interesting news about the celebrity Chuck Norris, hero many movies like Walker Texas Ranger and Martial Law. Norris is famous for his fights in the movies and that he is always winning. Now, this information may have been on the biggest fight of his life.
According to Daily Mail, Chuck Norris and his wife Gena are charging 11 pharmaceutical giants, because of the claim that she has been fighting pain, weakness, and exhaustion since undergoing three MRI scans to assess her rheumatoid arthritis five years ago. They believe that Gena is suffering from Gadolinium Deposition Disease.
Gadolinium is the dye, which is taken in order to provide a contrast when a patient undergoes an MRI scan. The manufacturers claim that it is quickly flushed out of the body, but independent studies have found that it is not true. Gadolinium can linger in the body, bones, skin, and brain for far longer than that.
Even though that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and many other radiology institutions and organizations insist that MRIs are safe and provide “crucial, life-saving information,” there is an increased number of people who are insisting that MRIs have caused serious, long-term harm health problems.
Lasting and unusual symptoms
Here are lists of the symptoms by the website GadolimiumToxicity.com, which closely define this condition:
– A burning, pricking, or tingling pain felt deep in the bones (in the extremities, joints or the area where the MRI occurred);
– Muscular issues, including weakness and twitching;
– Skin changes, including hyperpigmentation and lesions;
– Cognitive issues;
– Ocular problems, including vision;
– Low body temperature;
– Problems in the ear, throat, and nose areas;
– Thinning hair;
– Problems with balance;
– Skin itching;
– Swelling of the extremities.
The research found that most patients start experiencing symptoms within a month of their MRI scan, but sometimes it can happen within mere hours.
These symptoms can be frightening because they are so unusual, and the people cannot see them on the outside of the body. Additionally, it can affect a patient’s mental and emotional health.
The case of Norris is specific about the money spent on medical treatments after this medical problem occurred. He claims to have spent over $2 million, including the stem cell therapy, in trying to deal with her symptoms.
Her wife explains that the litigation is the only course of action that the people can take to hold the drug companies accountable for threatening the lives. She highlighted that there are so many innocent people who undergo MRIs and face the same problem, but many of them are even don’t reacting.
She told the Mail: “These companies continue to say that there is no link between gadolinium and adverse events, even though the evidence is overwhelming that this heavy metal stays in the body for years, rather than hours.”
Their representing law firm Cutter Law has filed legal action against 11 different pharmaceutical companies involved in the manufacture of gadolinium dye.
According to Todd Walburg, one of Norris’ attorneys, the gadolinium deposition disease is both undiagnosed and misdiagnosed.
The Notes of the Daily Mail
Their lawsuit recognized and reported the link between gadolinium and symptoms, which are claimed by people who believe the metal has affected their health.
The blood and urine testing for gadolinium only became available recently and it is really strange that the most doctors haven’t shown knowledge about this problem. They were not aware of any disease that was associated with gadolinium other than one, which is linked with kidney problems.
The lawsuit, also declares that manufacturers of the dye are aware of its risks of the gadolinium, but they choose to keep the public in the dark. The couple Norris expects to get $10 million from Big Pharm.
