And it's only going to get worse
The percentage of Americans taking prescription drugs is expected to rise even further as the health reform
insurance regulations kick in. Much of the bill was specifically designed to favor pharmaceutical industry interests by putting
even more people on medication. Expect to see more "screening" too -- a thinly disguised drug recruitment method
that primarily seeks to ensnare new patients in a high-profit drug regimen.
The mass medication of American citizens has reached a disturbing tipping point where the future of the nation
itself is at risk. That's because pharmaceuticals cause cognitive decline, and once you get to the point where over 50 percent
of the voters can't think straight, you're trapped in a crumbling Democracy.
And that doesn't even take into consideration the financial cost of America's addiction to drugs: With nearly
one out of every five dollars out of the entire U.S. economy now being spent on sickness and disease, America finds herself
stuck in a cycle of high-cost drug treatments that cure no one.
right: No one gets healthier from taking prescription drugs. They don't cure anyone and they don't prevent disease. They only
maintain patients in a kind of "pre-death stasis" where they're alive just enough to keep buying more medication.
Drug companies don't want you dead because that would cut off their profits. But they don't want you healthy, either, because
then they wouldn't have you as a customer. So their drugs are actually designed to keep you in a state of ongoing disease
without curing your condition but also without killing you outright.
You sort of chemically limp along, shelling out dollars while your memory fades and your skin starts to show
signs of severe toxicity. Big Pharma is not merely sapping the life out of you; it's also draining you financially.
Isn't it obvious that pharmaceuticals don't work?
If pharmaceuticals really worked to make people healthy, then the half of America currently taking
pharmaceuticals would be the healthiest half, and the people who don't take pharmaceuticals would be unhealthy, right?
But in fact it's the other way around: People who take pharmaceuticals remain unhealthy
and really never get cured of anything. Meanwhile, those who avoid taking pharmaceuticals are, by and large, far healthier
If America were running a grand experiment
to determine whether pharmaceuticals really work -- and trust me, the country really is running precisely that experiment
-- any reasonable observer would have to conclude that pharmaceuticals really don't improve the health of those who take them.
The more pharmaceuticals you take, in fact, the sicker you will become. That's because drugs cause an imbalance in the body
that soon leads to the emergence of other side effects.
the same time, many of the drugs people take actually cause the very things they claim to prevent. Osteoporosis drugs cause
hip fractures. Cancer drugs cause cancer. Antidepressants cause suicidal thoughts. The list goes on and on.
The people who are really, truly healthy in America are those who avoid pharmaceuticals.
(http://www.naturalnews.com/028789_pharmacies_health_food_stores.html) They take care of their own health through regular
exercise, time in nature, sensible sunshine exposure and healthy eating. They distrust the pharmaceutical industry and they
don't let television advertising hypnotize them into making poor decisions like getting a flu shot (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_vaccines_junk_science.html).
Yet even though it is blatantly obvious that pharmaceuticals really don't work to
improve the health of any population, the drug industry insists the only thing wrong with America's health is that not enough
people are taking medication!
If we could only get 100%
of the population on drugs instead of 50%, they seem to be saying, then we'd all be healthy!
The logic is absurd, of course. And that goal has nothing to do with actual health but everything
to do with increasing drug company profits. While drug companies may not know much at all about health, they do know one thing:
How to commit marketing fraud by making outrageous benefit claims for their drugs while whitewashing the very real dangerous
Big Pharma will bankrupt America
Mark my words: Big Pharma will bankrupt America. And quite possibly the UK as well.
Any nation that hands over its health care system to the drug industry is committing financial suicide.
That's because Big Pharma absolutely will not halt its single-minded mission to
extract as much money as possible from the population, corporations and governments. It will do anything and everything it
can to accomplish this goal: Bribe researchers to commit research fraud, engage in false and fraudulent marketing, lie to
the public, hide negative study results, conduct experiments on children in third-world countries, pollute the planet with
drug factory runoff, influence legislators with campaign finance contributions, dominate the pages of medical journals with
false and misleading advertising, submit "scientific" articles to the journals ghost-written by the drug companies
themselves... this list never ends.
Drug companies will
knowingly keep dangerous drugs on the market that kill tens of thousands of people. They will knowingly withhold research
from the FDA if it might make their drugs look bad. They will knowingly distort clinical trial data to eliminate whatever
outcome they don't want to see.
This is all "routine"
in the drug industry. These aren't exceptions, mind you: They are the way the drug industry operates on a daily basis.
The worst part of it is that Big Government is now fully in bed with Big Pharma.
I already exposed Sen Harry Reid's efforts to swing a sweet deal for Big Pharma in the recent health care reforms (http://www.naturalnews.com/029450_Harry_Reid_Big_Pharma.html).
The FDA's collusion with drug companies, meanwhile, is legendary: There is hardly a decision made by the FDA that doesn't
in some way protect drug company profits.
The med schools
and science journals have been overrun by drug company influence. Drug companies are so large and powerful now that the U.S.
government considers them "too big to nail." When Pfizer was recently found guilty of felony crimes, the government
allowed it to create a shell company to take the hit so that Pfizer itself could remain in business and keep selling drugs
to the government. (http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/04/02/pfizer.bextra/index.html)
A federal prosecutor actually went on the record saying, "If we prosecute Pfizer... a lot
of people who work for the company who haven't engaged in criminal activity would get hurt."
Therefore, the logic goes, they have to let Pfizer off the hook.
And so it goes; Big Government protecting the criminals in the drug industry, making
excuses for looking the other way when scientific fraud and marketing fraud is routinely being carried out right under their
noses. The Dept of Justice isn't even interested in taking down criminal drug companies!
How this will end
does this medication madness ever end? It will end, I predict, with the economic downfall of the United States of America.
When the nation is too broke, too medicated and too chemically compromised to stay afloat, it will suffer an enormous economic
Following the financial failure of big government,
Big Pharma will implode virtually overnight. Without the government buying its products, Big Pharma will find few willing
private customers. Ordinary people will seek out affordable and safer natural remedies, and the drug industry will collapse
to perhaps 10% of its current size.
This will be a great
day for the health of all Americans who have suffered under the chemical assault of Big Pharma. To live without the daily
onslaught of Big Pharma's chemicals is to live a healthier life with improved brain function and awareness. Once people get
off all their drugs, we might have hope to thoughtfully rebuild a nation based on nutrition rather than monopoly-priced medications.
I've said this at least a hundred times, and I'll say it again: No nation that ignores
the nutritional health of its citizens has any real future. A successful long-term society MUST, at its core, invest in real
nutrition and the holistic health education of its citizens. Without good nutrition, every society is ultimately doomed to
Modern medicine, in other words, is destroying
our country. And the "cure" for this disease is to throw out what doesn't work (pharmaceuticals) and start embracing
the things that do work (nutrition and superfoods) to keep people healthy.
