Walgreens Temporarily Closing Its Henry Kissinger-Connected Theranos Wellness Center

Walgreens said it is temporarily closing its Theranos Wellness Center in Palo Alto, Calif., after federal inspectors found “deficient practices” at Theranos’s Newark, Calif., lab that “pose immediate jeopardy to patient health and safety,” reports WSJ.

The tests at the Henry Kissinger connected Theranos have been suspicious for years. In 2014, I tried to locate a center to get my blood tested, as a world-recognized scientist, specializing in blood diagnostics, tipped me off to problems with the tests. I was going to match the results up against standard tests.

My phone conversations and email exchanges in October 2014 with Jim Graham in Walgreens public relations proved unhelpful. In visiting San Francisco Walgreens pharmacies, none of them were familiar with the tests.

The world-recognized expert pointed out to me several problems with the claims bing made by Theranos, years before the concerns now being raised by government regulators.

The high-profile board members and/or consultants at Theranos include Henry Kissinger, former State Department and Treasury Secretary George Schultz and former Senator Sam Nunn.

According to Fortune, investors in Theranos include:

Draper Fisher Jurvetson, ATA Ventures, Tako Ventures, former board member Don Lucas and Oracle  founder Larry Ellison.

BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners, Continental Properties Co., Esoom Enterprise (Taiwan), Jupiter Partners, Palmieri Trust, Partner Fund Management, Dixon Doll, Ray Bingham and B.J. Cassin.
