The pandemic era has shown the extent to which the public have - and continue to be - let down and experimented on by a corrupt pharmaceutical industry.
Health needs to be in the hands of the people, not those who seek to over-medicalise and profit from disease. We begin by reclaiming our health records and reasserting our right to informed consent.
The Control Group was established to start this process.
The Control Group is asking for health information in order to provide insights into how health has changed since the start of the pandemic. By contributing anonymised data about your wellbeing and lifestyle choices, you will be helping to establish the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals, like the COVID-19 vaccine.
Our insights will provide a window into - what appears to be - the rise in serious health conditions around the world, and help identify the causes that may lie behind them.
It is time to demand accountability from those in charge of Public Health.
Feelings of betrayal towards 'Big Pharma' are high which is why the Control Group is working outside the medical establishment. The Control Group is solely owned and funded by its members, meaning that any insights produced are unbiased by corporate greed.
You control the information you put into the database, and the Control Group commits to never selling on your data.
Health is for all us - it's time to take back control.
