The tens of thousands of Spanish-speakers, who visit this site, will appreciate the pun in the title, but for English-speakers, don’t worry too much about it. Instead, worry about the health costs of drug side effects:
“The never-ending cycle of side effects and adverse reactions that come from pharmaceutical drugs adds nearly half a trillion dollars to U.S. health care costs annually. A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego computed the true costs of pharmaceutical drugs. The real reason health insurance and medical care is so expensive is because most of the “medicines” doled out are actually costly poisons that cause more health problems. The side effects of pharmaceutical drugs only cause more doctor visits, more testing, more medical intervention, and a cycle of drug dependence.
So many people today do not understand what it feels like to be healthy, to be functioning with energy, strength, stamina, cognition, and strong natural immunity because they have been lied to and abused by this pharmaceutical system. For example, the aluminum salts in an HPV vaccine can trigger seizures in a young girl, forcing her to need anti-seizure medication. This anti-seizure medication can cause insomnia, leading her to need a sleeping pill. The sleeping pill can cause attention deficit and memory recall issues, leading to more medication and more problems down the road.
Most pharmaceuticals actually initiate the symptoms of chronic disease, causing entirely new problems within the body. Statins are used to control cholesterol levels, but they quickly accelerate cognitive decline. SSRI’s are used to treat depression, but they often cause metabolic issues and weight gain that can exacerbate fatigue and depression. The researchers refer to these problems as non-optimized medication therapy. The problems encompass adverse reactions, prescription error, medication non-compliance or the development of entirely new diseases from perfectly prescribed pharmaceuticals.”
But, that’s not all, for doctors regularly get kickbacks in various forms for prescribing drugs, and that is surely a conflict of interest:
Worse yet, there are moves to make all criticisms of this illegal:
Does anyone remember freedom?
