Major Diseases & Prescription Medication

In today’s day, we are now seeing even more cases of the worst types of diseases such as Heart Disease, all types of Cancers, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoporosis and Arthritis, and the list just seems to increase almost as quickly as the number of cases of each disease multiplies, and the rates of both do not seem to be abating. So we ask ourselves how and why have we got to this position and what can be done?


To answer the question of how things have got so bad, we need only look at the trends from the last 100 years and although there are many changing factors that have taken place during the last century, there emerges a clear and outright culprit; the foods we consume.


Dietary habits, cooking preparation methods and family time with freshly prepared produce without preservatives and other harmful chemicals are what have changed dramatically, and the correlation between this and the amount of people being diagnosed with dreadful diseases is staggering.


The number of deaths attributable to these diseases is so high and no-one is unaffected, for everyone has been or is a patient of them, or knows someone close to him or her who is also suffering with illness.


The trouble is, how do we treat it more successfully than we are currently doing? We are told the pharmaceutical industry is at the forefront of medical science and is religiously working on cures for all of these ailments.

But the last hundred years have also seen another killer that can readily be added to the list of major killers in our society.

Only this one is a stealth killer…

More than 10,000 people are killed every year in the UK by side effects of prescription medicines even when they are correctly given – making it now the fourth biggest killer in the western world. The US figure is over 100,000.


Arthritis painkiller Vioxx, withdrawn in 2004, caused up to 320,000 heart attacks and strokes – as many as 140,000 of them fatal. This is just one example of countless drugs that destroy lives but why then do these figures seldom present themselves in mainstream media?


You see, technically each reported death was recorded with the cause being the either the heart attack or the stroke. The medical establishment refused to log the cause actually being the drug that triggered the fatality. This is precisely how the pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment benefit from working together. The hospitals and doctors do not wish to be sued and lose their licenses and the pharmaceutical companies will too want to avoid being sued, so working together to chart all such deaths in a way that diverts the attention as far away as possible from them is the primary objective after something goes wrong.

``Each death or incident that occurs as a side effect from a pharmaceutical drug is recorded officially as the health complication that arose as a direct result of the prescribed medicine instead of listing the drug itself as causative.`` - Mark Kimchi

So before you pop another prescription pill, think carefully. Just because your doctor prescribed it, it is no guarantee you’ll benefit from it or even emerge unscathed from the experience. That prescription pill could be hazardous to your health – and life.
