Mike Adams, of The Natural News, is becoming one of my favorite sources for original, succinct, health articles.
This most recent article is one that broaches a variety of subjects from vaccines to personal health accountability. The 10 Biggest Health Care Lies in America, is to the point, and professes much of what every chiropractor I pay attention to has been saying for years. Many of his points are based around the tenets of chiropractic philosophy.
One of my favorites:
Lie #2) Pharmaceuticals prevent disease
The big push by Big Pharma is now focused on treating healthy people with drugs as if pharmaceuticals were nutrients that could somehow prevent disease. This is the new push with cholesterol drugs: Give ’em to everyone, whether they have high cholesterol or not!
But pharmaceuticals don’t prevent disease, and medications are not vitamins. Your body has no biological need for any pharmaceuticals at all. People who believe they need pharmaceuticals have simply been the victims of “fabricated consent” engineered by Big Pharma’s clever advertising and P.R. spin.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. The biggest question is when will we wake up and demand that the unscrupulous, dishonest, and unsafe advertising practices stop. Usually by the time we have realized the harm of most of these medications, the public attitude has already moved onto the next wonder drug. It disappoints me when these companies continue to be held unaccountable for the harm caused, as it seems the multi-million and multi-billion dollar judgments have no effect on companies that are profiting so much, that the judgments are just a cost of doing business.
It really makes me happy when someone is paying attention to this information who isn’t a chiropractor, for what is right, and is speaking for what is currently the minority of people who are sticking up for our health.
Kudos again to Mike Adams.
