Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.
The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.
Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.
That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.
That’s about one new prescription every month for every American.
The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry
should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and
spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.
We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the
number of pills Americans took. We’re also not counting over-the-counter
drugs or vaccine shots.
Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated
that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own
lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions.
Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to
40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.
What are the effects of all these drugs?
We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America
and other industrialized countries from the inside. Wars, no wars,
economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do
their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives.
Many sources can be cited to confirm this assessment.
On January 8th, 2001, the LA Times
published an article by one of the best medical reporters in the
business, Linda Marsa: “When Good Drugs Do Harm.” Marsa quoted
researcher Dr. David Bates, who indicated that, in the US, there are 36
million serious adverse reactions to medical drugs per year.
On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the
American Medical Association published the most stunning mainstream
estimate of medical-drug damage in history: “Is US health really the
best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a respected
public-health researcher at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
Starfield concluded that medical drugs were killing Americans at the rate of 106,000 per year.
This is a conservative sketch of the Trojan Horse that has been placed in the center of the industrialized world.
The pharmaceutical juggernaut will continue, no doubt about it. The
only question is, how many people will wake up and seek another way?
The destruction of societies by medical drugs goes far beyond what
some people call “over-prescribing.” This isn’t just a tilt in the wrong
direction. It isn’t simply errors of judgment compounded by the number
of doctors dispensing medicines.
Those are all polite terms suggesting the situation can be corrected
through a show of good will and better judgment. That will never happen.
Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by
pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors. It’s chemical
To even begin to see light at the end of the tunnel, hundreds of
millions of people must add themselves to the rolls of those who already
are pursuing better health through natural means.
We need an all-out rebellion against the Pharmacopoeia.
Not even the Nazis and their dearly beloved cartel, the monster IG
Farben, dreamed of the day when the citizenry would line up and demand
to ingest more and more life-destroying chemicals.
