Big pharm doesn't care if its medicine kills you - as long as you pay for it.
Big pharm is spending millions to convince you to run to your doctor and ask for the
latest miracle "cure" for anything and everything that ails you - or that might possibly
ail you. The potential side-effects are listed by law, but downplayed so as to appear
rare and unusual. You're almost instructed to brush them aside, because they won't
happen to you. Just tonight I saw a woman on TV smiling as she casually mentioned that
one of the "rare" side effects of the drug she was promoting was death.

New York Times reports today (8-6-09) that the White House has made a back room deal to
protect pharmaceutical companies' interests in the health care reform bill. |
The truth is, those serious side-effects DO affect far too many people. And even
if they don't see immediate, overt side-effects, those drugs are eating away at your
health each and every day - ensuring that you'll be back to the doctor to get yet
another pill to counter the effects of the last one. This is a self-perpetuating
cycle, and once they "have you" you can bet that the only way you'll break the
cycle is to just stand up and say "NO."
Doctors are so willing to prescribe
that a recent study showed that a patient just asking about a drug he or she had
seen advertised would result in getting the prescription up to 70% of the time.
Never mind if they needed it or if it was appropriate for their illness.
These are not cures
Listen closely to those ads. Have you ever heard one say it "cured" an illness.
No, what they say is that they relieve your symptoms. So whatever caused those
symptoms goes on - raging through your body unchecked - making you sicker. When
you add the toxins from the pharmeceuticals, you're in real trouble. But that's
OK with the medical profession, because the worse you feel the more office visits
you'll pay for, the more hospital stays you'll endure, and the more pills you'll
Some doctors - the ones I refer to as "real" doctors - are becoming
outspoken about the use and over-use of drugs. Look at the following quotes from
a Drug-Free Approach to Healthcare by Dr. David W. Tanton, Ph.D.:
- "The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians surreptitiously
give in order to affect a cure." Charles E. Page, M.D.
- "Every drug increases and
complicates the patient's condition." Robert Henderson, M.D.
- "The greatest part
of all chronic disese is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning."
Henry Lindlahr, M.D.
When you pay attention to newspaper articles, especially the doctor's columns,
you'll learn about side-effects that doctors not only won't warn patients about, but
will deny. I've been writing about them on my blog for a long time, but now I've
started a summary page with links back to those posts.
You'll also find a new page on drug interactions
that you should check if you're taking more than one prescription.
If you or your loved ones take prescriptions, check to see if any of them are
listed here. Check back often for updates!
While you're at it, you can visit this health site to see the
Common Food & Drug Interactions that doctors and researchers are talking about right now.
They'll give you drugs that kill, just to make a buck
Hopefully, physicians have had enough training to realize that the majority of their
most popular drugs deplete the vitamins and minerals in your system that can work to
make you well. If they haven't had that training, then the problem is even scarier.
But the bottom line is, most of them don't care, won't check for interactions with
your other medications, and will continue to prescribe those drugs without letting
you know the effects.
Why can't they at least tell you to run to the health
food store for vitamins and minerals to supplement the loss? Possibly because there's
no money in it for them.
Things they won't tell you
Ahtough they definitely should, doctors probably won't tell you about these
Common Food & Drug Interactions.
Nor will they tell you
which drugs are being investigated by the FDA for safety issues.
One blatant example is prescribing diuretics and a
lowered fluid intake for edema. Studies of natural health show that is the
worst thing you could do. Read more...
Another is the attempt to disrupt nature by preventing or postponing a woman's
monthly cycle. If you or anyone you know has been tempted to try it, please take a
moment to read the email I received about these deadly
new birth control pills.

Advice from Dr. Al Sears
Al Sears is one doctor who believes in using natural means to health whenever possible.
Because he does sell nutritional products, many label him along with other doctors,
as "just in it for the money."
However, many of his messages don't sell anything - they just give advice we
can use. Read what he has to say about the nutrition
most Americans get from their foods today. Then read what he says about the
government's threat to take away our right to natural supplements.
The FDA and the USDA won't help - some "approved" foods are toxic too...
More and more we're learning that the FDA and the USDA either don't care, or key people
are being paid to overlook health hazards - not just in pharmaceuticals, but in
the foods we eat. Read what USDA Organic really means, and what isn't being
done to protect your family from toxins in bottled water.
