How the Pharmaceutical Industry GETS Profit

Please take note.

 This only for your knowledge.  Decicion Making are up to you.

It is estimated that in America last year, nearly $2 trillion was spent on health care — and virtually all that money was spent on treating disease.1 Despite this massive expenditure on treatment, more Americans are sicker than ever before with diseases that are largely preventable: heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and depression, to name a few. Each year more money is spent on treatment, mere patchwork, even though it has become crystal-clear that treatments do NOT enable you to live a longer, better life. So why is the amount of money being spent on prevention just a pittance compared with the amount spent on treatment? The answer is simple — when you are sick it is highly profitable to various giant corporations. When you are well, it doesn’t profit them much at all.  watch Dr. Mercola’s Video

Drug Trials: Nobody checks, nobody knows
What really goes on in medical trials? Are the results really as they seem, and is the drug that is being tested as effective – and safe – as the manufacturer claims? In truth, we have no way of knowing, because nobody is testing the testers. It should be the function of drug regulators, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the USA’s drugs watchdog. But a recent survey discovered that the FDA has inspected just 1 per cent of medical trials that were carried out between the years 2000 and 2005. There’s no registry of clinical trials, and the FDA is too under-resourced to carry out any further checking. Arthur Caplan, chairman of the department of medical ethics at the University of Pennsylvania, commented: “In many ways, rats and mice get greater protection as research subjects than do humans.” (Source: New York Times, 1 October 2007) 

Gary Null’s new DVD, Prescription For Disaster, is a must-see in-depth investigation and expose of the conventional health care syste — and that’s putting it lightly. It describes in detail the failure of the traditional paradigm and provides us with shocking statistics on the thousands and thousands of deaths that resulted from unnecessary or incorrect medical treatments. The main principles governing the pharmaceutical “business with disease.” It is not in the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry to prevent common diseases – the maintenance and expansion of diseases is a precondition for the financial growth of this industry.

A report by the General Accounting Office in the United States revealed that 51.5 per cent of all drugs introduced between 1976 and 1985 had to be relabelled because of serious adverse reactions found after the marketing of these drugs. These included heart, liver and kidney failure, foetal toxicity and birth defects, severe blood disorders, respiratory arrest, seizures and blindness. The changes to the labelling either restricted a drug’s use or added major warnings. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 1.5 million Americans were hospitalised in 1978 as a consequence of taking drugs and some 30 per cent of all hospitalised people are further damaged by their treatments. Every year, an estimated 140,000 Americans are killed because of drug taking (21) and one in seven hospital beds is taken up by patients suffering from adverse drug reactions. The Pharmaceutical Drug Racket

Tell Your Congressmen and Women to Co Sponsor the Health Freedom Protection Act, H.R. 2117 – The FDA is on a rampage against dietary supplements. Preventing reasonable and factual health claims, the FDA is using its immense power to fuel the pharmaceutical profit picture at the expense of the lives and health of hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. The rights of Americans to learn about natural products through truthful, science-based health claims is routinly stifled to the detriment of health and health freedom in the United States.
