At one point or another I have commented on some of these topics. Every once in awhile a thread will be made that talks about one of the issues im
about to discuss. I felt need for a single (albeit, long) thread that covers 7 of the (arguably) most harmful things we poison ourselves with. If you
already know about the issue, just scroll to the next one. If you know about none of these, then I could be saving you a lot of pain and hardship
later on in your life.
Without your health you literally have nothing, and there's no need to be disabled and live with discomfort when you don't have to. At first, the
information could be overwhelming, but as it's committed to your subconscious you will notice yourself making beneficial changes without having to
think about it.
WARNING: THE INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN, ALONG WITH ENDING THE INTENTIONAL POISONING OF YOUR BODY COULD LEAD TO ANYONE OF THE FOLLOWING ADVERSE
REACTIONS: CLEARER THINKING, BETTER MEMORY, LESS SORENESS, MORE ENERGY, HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS, LESS CANCER, LESS DISEASES, LESS SICKNESS, LESS PAIN AND
DISCOMFORT, IMPROVED ORGAN FUNCTION, A LONGER MORE ENJOYABLE LIFE SPAN, AND OVERALL BETTER HEALTH.
You have been warned. Let's continue.
Prescription and over the counter Medication
Is it mere coincidence that the drug industry is a billion dollar industry, and that the US just happens to be the most medicated population on earth?
In the U.S. , prescriptions have increased over the past decade to 3.4 billion annually, a 61 percent increase. Retail sales of prescription drugs
jumped 250 percent from $72 billion to $250 billion, while the average price of prescriptions has more than doubled from $30 to $68.
One only needs to turn on the TV, to practically any station to see Drug advertisements. We're told to ask our Doctor, since we are definitely so
educated on the topic after watching 30 seconds of old people frolic and listened to 25 seconds of side effects.
Ironically enough, Ads will often tell you one of the side effects of the product is what it actually supposed to treat. And if you get that side
effect, you'll likely have numerous others as well.
In 2004 it was stated that on average, each month 40 new side effects or adverse reactions were added to drug warning labels after they had already
been approved and were being consumed by customers.
In one of the longest delays in changes, widely used Demerol a common pain reliever got a new warning in 2003, 70 years after its introduction. The
change? Demerol was passing straight into mothers milk, being passed on directly to suckling babies. A powerful pain reliever being consumed by a baby
is terrifying, who knows the full extent of the health consequences of that problem.
Another example would be the product Pletal, which in February of 2004 was given a battery of new, terrible side effects.
The following adverse events have been reported worldwide since the launch of Pletal in the US. Pain, Chest pain, hot flashes, cerebral
hemorrhage, angina pectoris, hypo-tension, hepatic dysfunction/abornmal liver function, jaundice, vomiting, thromboctopenia, leukopenia, bleeding
tendency, paresthesia, hyperglycemia, pulmonary hemorrhage, interstitial pneumonia, pruritus, skin eruptions including Stevens-Johnson syndrome, rash,
increase BUN, and hematuria.
The following adverse events occurred OUTSIDE the US prior to marketing of Pletal in the US: Pulmonary Hemorrhage and Stevens-Johnsons
That last line means “Massive bleeding of the heart, and excruciating, disfiguring skin reaction that sometimes kills you”. They knew all of this,
before they happily made a fortune selling it to us.
How we got over medicated
As you'll soon read later on in this thread, the issue is that we are being slowly poisoned by so many things daily that we essentially are
permanently sick. Leading to a variety of different symptoms, then through the million dollar marketing campaigns are convinced to go ask about a drug
that promises a quick fix for all these ambiguous symptoms.
But, not only do they cause as many issues as they solve, but could literally kill you in the process. All given to you legally from your local,
helpful doctor. Who by the way, made a killing giving you that prescription. The perscription drug industry is able to pull all this off, thanks to
its investment in lobbyists.
What the Statistics say
The top twenty pharmaceutical companies and their two trade groups, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and Biotechnology
Industry Organization, lobbied on at least 1,600 pieces of legislation between 1998 and 2004. According to the non-partisan Center for Responsive
Politics, pharmaceutical companies spent $900 million on lobbying between 1998 and 2005, more than any other industry. During the same period, they
donated $89.9 million to federal candidates and political parties, giving approximately three times as much to Republicans as to Democrats. According
to the Center for Public Integrity, from January 2005 through June 2006 alone, the pharmaceutical industry spent approximately $182 million on Federal
lobbying. The industry has 1,274 registered lobbyists in Washington D.C.
Modern medicine kills 750,000 people each year, that's a 16,400% increase over terrorism. The equivalent to crashing 6 fully loaded jumbo jets daily.
Adverse reactions alone claimed approx. 32,000 people in 2000. Source.
Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Aspirin claimed 7,600 people in 2000. Source.
In contrast, all illicit drug use both directly and indirectly claimed only 17,000 people in 2000.
Prescription pills are absolutely UNNECESSARY and should be avoided at all costs, unless it is a life or death situation. And, if such an event were
to come about, you will be glad you are not already resistant to the drug that could ease great pain in a life or death situation. The negative
effects are substantial, and as mentioned, could kill you. It's worth noting I have taken one prescription in my quarter century, it was for an ear
infection when I was a child. I could also count the amount of Tylenol and Advil I have taken with my fingers. I have not been sick in approx 8 years,
and I have never experienced a head ache. I do not believe this to be due to my lucky nature, rather the fact that I do not medicate.
Some people may already know about fluoride. I have talked about it several times on this forum, as well as others. But since we come in contact with
this poison daily, everyone should be educated about it's toxicity and the illogical way it came to invade our daily life.
For those who haven't already, I suggest reading my thread about tooth sensitivity
and it's apparent association to Fluoride, I suggest reading it as others have found the information useful.
So what is Fluoride?
The 1984 issue of Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products lists fluoride as more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic.
It has been used as a pesticide for mice, rats and other small pests. A 10# infant could be killed by 1/100 of an ounce and a 100# adult could be
killed by 1/10 of an ounce of fluoride.
So, just slightly less lethal than lead, and not quite as poisonous as the infamous arsenic. Doesn't that sound like something you want added to your
body daily? Some people who feel that fluoride is a less of a threat then it is perceived to be, like to use the argument that the amount is so small.
If we were only speaking of 1 single, tiny dose daily, then perhaps that could be the case. But, even if that were the case, why would anyone want a
chemical known to be more toxic to humans than lead, ingested at all?

How it has invaded our life
The reason it's such a great threat is the fact that it bombards our life daily. One of the main ways we ingest Fluoride is through our drinking
Almost everywhere in the continental US undergoes fluoridation of their water supply.
The fluoride used in our water supplies is industrial grade fluoride called Hydrofluosilicic Acid which contains harmful contaminants such as arsenic,
barium, cadmium, lead and mercury. It is a byproduct from the phosphate fertilizer industry. Water fluoridation is a cheap way for industry to get rid
of their waste and consumers pay the price.
We then drink the water, cook with the water, and bathe in the water. The compounding effect ramps up the levels in our body quickly. Water is
essential to a humans survival, so it makes sense that ingesting clean water will improve overall health. If you haven't already, you should
seriously invest in a Berkey
water filtration system. Around $200 you can have a complete system, and if
you're currently purchasing bottled water, this pays itself off quickly, but better yet, could save your biggest asset, your health.
