Money changes everything.
And nowhere is that glaring fact any MORE noticeable…
Than it can be seen in the absolute erosion of Western Medicine.
(NaturalNews) How in the world did the U.S. change from having the best scientists in the world who were discovering vitamins, minerals, vaccines and cures for disease, tomodern times, where the only medicine available is toxic with horrific side effects, and where nutrient-void, chemical-laden food is being sold at almost every restaurant and grocery store, all in the name of corporate profits that keep the public sick and in need of expensive care?
The United States of America is the land of the free and the home of …toxic food and venomous medicine, with chronic care waiting for its next 80 million victims. Here are some basic statistics of a country riddled with disease:
•Cancer: 1,500,000 diagnosed each year; over 50% will die of it.
•Diabetes: 25,000,000 people are diabetics right now (including children); 80,000,000 are borderline.
•Heart Disease and Strokes: 81,000,000 (every third adult) has some type of cardiovascular disease.
•Alzheimer’s Disease: 5,400,000 have Alzheimer’s right now (every 8th senior)
•Birth defects: One in every 33 babies is born with one (accounts for 20% of all infant deaths). (http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/data.html)
Most U.S. politicians have no ethics and no morals
Once upon a time,insider tradingwas a scary law that meant prison time for those who violated it. Now, politicians make money off wars they declare themselves, and health insurance companies invest in fast food operations that slowly kill their own clients. Pharmaceutical companies (Merck, Pfizer, Bayer, Bristol Meyers, etc.) are run by CEO’s who served as Governors, Senators, and heads of the FDA, and the Supreme Court itself seats Judges who worked for major pharmaceutical firms, and whowill return to those jobs after writing new legislation to benefit their current investments.
Make no mistake, the pesticides used on most U.S. farms give humans cancer, and the politicians who support genetically mutated foods know it. GMO means that the seedlings of fruits and vegetables are spliced with toxic pesticides in a lab, so even if you wash off your food, you are still eating dioxin, the same toxic chemical (Agent Orange) the U.S. dumped on Vietnam which gave our own soldiers cancer.

Your argument: “That is ridiculous. No one is pure EVIL enough to want to make money off of the misfortune of others!”
Because that is what it would have to be, pure evil…
In order for anyone to seek financial gain via the exploitation of a ‘client base’ one devised for nefarious intent.
[via TampaBay] MIAMI — Federal drug agents have searched six Walgreens pharmacies and a company distribution center in Florida as part of an investigation into prescription painkiller drug abuse, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials said Friday.
The distribution center in Jupiter and the six pharmacies — one each in Hudson, Port Richey, Fort Myers and Oviedo and two in Fort Pierce — all showed signs of suspiciously high distribution of the drug oxycodone, a DEA investigator wrote in an affidavit for the search warrants.
Such large amounts, investigator Marjorie Milan wrote, indicate “a pharmacy that fills prescriptions issued by physicians at pain clinics and/or a pharmacy which services primarily drug-seeking individuals who abuse the medication.” Oxycodone is highly addictive.
The searches for pharmacy records conducted Wednesday are the latest in a crackdown by federal and state authorities on “pill mills” and other illegal sources of prescription drugs in Florida, which has become the nation’s leading source of oxycodone and similar drugs. The DEA says prescription drug abuse now exceeds abuse of all illegal drugs combined, except marijuana. [Read More]
Your additional argument: “This is just ONE report. Surely they are blowing the seriousness of the situation out of proportion.”
And yes, in a way they are…
The ‘out of proportion’ part is that the above article DOES NOT even come close to explaining how serious the current prescription medicine epidemic has become.
[via AP]NEW YORK (AP) — Sales of the nation’s two most popular prescription painkillers have exploded in new parts of the country, an Associated Press analysis shows, worrying experts
who say the push to relieve patients’ suffering is spawning an addiction epidemic.
From New York’s Staten Island to Santa Fe, N.M., Drug Enforcement Administration figures show dramatic rises between 2000 and 2010 in the distribution of oxycodone, the key ingredient in OxyContin, Percocet and Percodan. Some places saw sales increase sixteenfold.
Meanwhile, the distribution of hydrocodone, the key ingredient in Vicodin, Norco and Lortab, is rising in Appalachia, the original epicenter of the painkiller epidemic, as well as in the Midwest.
The increases have coincided with a wave of overdose deaths, pharmacy robberies and other problems in New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Florida and other states. Opioid pain relievers, the category that includes oxycodone and hydrocodone, caused 14,800 overdose deaths in 2008 alone, and the death toll is rising, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
Nationwide, pharmacies received and ultimately dispensed the equivalent of 69 tons of pure oxycodone and 42 tons of pure hydrocodone in 2010, the last year for which statistics are available. That’s enough to give 40 5-mg Percocets and 24 5-mg Vicodins to every person in the United States. The DEA data records shipments from distributors to pharmacies, hospitals, practitioners and teaching institutions. The drugs are eventually dispensed and sold to patients, but the DEA does not keep track of how much individual patients receive. [Read More]
Argue all you like.
And deny any connection that you wish.
But one exists…
Between those who are suppose to be ‘protecting us’, and the very thing that causes our need for THEM in the first place.
For the simple fact?
That they are prescribing to us our very destruction…
In pill form.
And we’re swallowing it.
