The Doctors Corner

 

Dr. Josh Bloom

Dr. Josh Bloom, the Director of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Science for the American Council on Science and Health, is a recognized expert on the opioid crisis and was the first journalist to write a nationally published opinion piece about the unintended consequences of a governmental crackdown on prescriptions opioids (New York Post, 2013). Since that time he has published more than a dozen op-eds in regional and national newspapers on different aspects of the crisis. In that same year, he testified at an FDA hearing and was the only speaker to note that fentanyl was the real killer, something that would be proven years later.

He was also the first writer (2016) to study, dissect and ultimately debunk the manipulated statistics used by the CDC to justify its recommendations for opioid prescribing, which have resulted in draconian requirements for prescribing pain medications as well as government-mandated, involuntary tapering of patients receiving opioid treatment, both of which have caused great harm and needless suffering to chronic pain patients. His 2016 article, "Six Charts Designed to Confuse You," is the seminal work on CDC deception and has been adopted by patient advocacy groups and individuals and has been sent to governors and state legislatures.
