If you live long enough you’ll find that you’ve heard just about every conspiracy theory known under the sun. There was a time when I’d laugh at the thought of someone claiming our government having a hidden agenda, or even at the thought of cloning. Now, it’s become almost common knowledge among the population that cloned animals exist. So, would it be safe to assume then that hidden agendas do exist, as well.
When it comes to the pushing of synthetic drugs onto the population, I’m convinced at best that people are unknowingly being used as human guinea pigs. At the very least, I’m certain that there’s something more sinister going on. Could it be the lack of genuine concern about the health of individuals and the concern of making big money the motive of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?
Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad ‘Wolfe’?
According to Boston University Today in an article titled, “FDA Watchdog Speaks Out on Dangerous Drugs and Docs”, physician Sidney Wolfe is well known by the FDA to be a thorn in their side when it comes to the regulation of drugs and medical devices. Forbes Magazine also dubbed Wolfe “The FDA’s Big Bad Wolfe”, where he’s known to have combatively succeeded in having the FDA remove more than two dozen dangerous drugs from off the market, as well as pointing out health risks of dozens more. But why are so many “bad” drugs being allowed on the market in the first place?
Within a span of six years, the pharmaceutical industry was forced to pay out $7 billion in penalties, fines, and lawsuits, but that was minimal when big companies like Eli Lilly, brought in $36 billion in just a span of four years and from just one drug alone (Zyprexa). Pfizer, another major pharmaceutical company, brought in $245 billion in the same amount of time. The drug, Lexapro, made by Forest Laboratories and used to treat depression and anxiety, brought in $355 million in just one year but the side effects were horrendous for those women who had taken Lexapro then wanted to have children later on. Women who had gotten pregnant after using Lexapro gave birth to children with birth defects such as spina bifida, limb defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), neural tube defects and cranial defects.
Feeling it Real Close to Home
It wasn’t until a really close friend of mine was diagnosed with Osteonecrosis of the hip that I really began paying close attention to the FDA and how synthetic drugs are regulated (or not regulated). As a teenager with severe asthma, he was prescribed a corticosteroid medication that is known now, after long-term use, to cause the blood supply to the femoral head (thighbone) to be disrupted. The disruption eventually caused the head of the femur to die then collapse, which led to a severe and disabling arthritis. Now, at age 44, my dear friend uses a wheelchair, is on disability, and is about to undergo his third surgery to try to correct the problem.
Drugs like these are out here in abundance. Many of us have used them, or knows of someone who does use them. I feel that once we placed all of our trust in doctors and the government-ran FDA, we gave over all of our power. The power to decide what is better for our health and what is not. I find it disturbingly, amusing at the thought of natural plants and remedies not being approved by the FDA, yet the FDA approves harmful synthetic drugs and GMO products without hesitation. Why is that? Or, maybe we should all be asking, “why have we allowed such insanity to exist?” Learn more about natural plants and remedies. It’s time we embrace nature and all its goodness, and trust our own organic knowledge for our own health’s sake.
