The Dangers of Drugs
Millions of people are suffering needlessly as a direct consequence of the unconscionable zeal of the pharmaceutical industry to rake up billions of dollars of profit aided and abetted by scientists and researchers who have been paid handsomely, even to the extent of falsifying tests and research results in some cases.
Not too long ago, three of the top executives of Purdue Pharma pleaded guilty to criminal charges of misleading the public on the risk of addiction and abuse associated with the painkiller drug OxyContin. That was only another of the many scandals of pharmaceutical companies doctoring research findings of the safety of drugs and masking their undesirable side effects.
For decades, unreliable drug tests have abounded in the medical and pharmaceutical research community, not only in the
but also in other parts of the world. United States
It is not uncommon for pharmaceutical companies to “influence” researchers through coercion, incentive, and even threat, to produce the desired results in clinical trials. Fabricating data, such as in the case of OxyContin, is no surprise to the pharmaceutical industry.
Clinical trials, usually involving a small number of people, may not truly reflect the outcome of those who will ultimately be using those drugs after their approval by FDA.
In addition, drugs tested on some animal models may be biased and even irrelevant on humans. An artificially induced disease in non-human animal models may yield results incompatible to a spontaneous, naturally occurring human disease. In short, there is no absolute safety or reliability of many pharmaceutical drugs that are readily available to the public.
The pharmaceutical companies and the FDA have convinced not only the medical establishment but also the gullible public that costly drugs are the only answers to all their health problems, despite their dubious track records and often-deadly side effects.
The use, misuse, and abuse of drugs account for 250,000 to 500,000 deaths each year in the
. And do you still
believe that pharmaceutical drugs provide all the possible answers to
your health problems? Dr. O. W. Holmes, Professor of Medicine, United States , had this to say regarding
pharmaceuticals putting you in harm’s way: “If all the medicine in the world
were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity.” Dr.
Holmes’ statement speaks volumes of the potential harm in using
pharmaceuticals. Harvard University
When you give your body a drug that replaces a substance your body is capable of making itself, your body then becomes weaker, not stronger, and begins not only to manufacture less of that substance, but also to become more dependent on the outside source, which is usually the drug you have been taking.
Unfortunately, no drug can give you insight into the circumstance that created your problems. At best, it can only temporarily reduce the symptoms or physical pain created by your medical condition. A drug “cures” your symptoms at the expense of creating more potential symptoms further down the road. For a while, you may be symptom-free, but soon enough new symptoms may emerge, requiring yet a more potent drug to deal with them, and thus forming a vicious cycle of taking more toxic pharmaceutical drugs.
Remember, there is no miracle cure, only natural self-healing, which is holistic health of the body, the mind, and the soul.
According to Dr. John Tilden, author of , the first and only cause of disease is toxemia, which is the accumulation of toxic wastes over a long period of time. In other words, toxicity retained and stored in our bodies is the common denominator for the causes of all human diseases, including autoimmune diseases.
