Nearly half the U.S. population is now taking a daily dose of one or more pharmaceuticals. The drug industry, which once merely hoped to medicate sick people, now has a more ambitious goal: medicate everyone, including people who aren’t sick.
The way they do that, of course, is to engage in disease mongering (the invention and marketing of fictitious diseases that “require” medication), false advertising, junk science, bribery of doctors, corruption of government regulators, control of the monopoly drug market, and the destruction of natural alternatives, to name a few of the tactics.
That modern medicine today is even called “medicine” is astonishing. It has nothing to do with helping patients prevent disease or cure disease, and is almost entirely focused on “managing” or “controlling” disease symptoms through drugs that must be taken for a lifetime. The real scam, of course, is that patients actually pay for this sort of chemical abuse. Even worse, they’re easily fooled into thinking it’s “medicine.”
