This cartoon shows what you do every time you put a pharmaceutical in your mouth, whether it's an over-the-counter painkiller or a powerful statin drug. FDA-approved pharmaceuticals kill so many Americans each year that the numbers are equivalent to dropping a nuclear bomb on a major U.S. city once each year.
As even drug companies have been forced to admit, all drugs have unintended side effects. That's because drugs are non-specific chemicals: They don't target only the tissues with "disease," they end up hijacking the biochemistry throughout the body.
Take blood pressure drugs, for example (er... don't take them, actually). When a person's blood pressure is high, it's because their blood is sludge-like and too viscous (due to diet, lack of healthy oils, etc.). Also, their arteries may be clogged due to the build up of plaque on arterial walls. With gummed-up blood and smaller arteries, the heart must pump harder to push the blood through the body, and that raises blood pressure -- it's basic physics or hydrodynamics. So when blood pressure medication comes along and artificially lowers blood pressure, guess what happens? The blood doesn't get where it needs to go, and extremities like fingers and toes start to suffer nerve damage from lack of blood.
Statin drugs are no better. While they hijack the body's production of cholesterol, they simultaneously interfere with the production of CoQ10, an essential nutrient for cellular energy, heart health, cancer prevention and much more. Those same statins also block the production of sex hormones and vitamin D, which in turn causes calcium deficiency that leads to further heart problems and osteoporosis.
The American people are being played by Big Pharma when they're told these magic bullet pills will solve their health problems. And when you take drugs -- even over-the-counter drugs -- you're literally playing with your life. More than 16,000 Americans die each year after defecating massive amounts of their own digested blood. Where did the blood come from? Gastrointestinal bleeding caused by over-the-counter painkillers called NSAIDs (the most common kind of painkillers). Aleve is one NSAID. There are many others. These drugs kill thousands of people each year.
If you enjoy playing Pharmaceutical Roulette, keep taking those drugs. You'll keep getting sicker while Big Pharma gets richer. And when you die, they'll say you died from a "heart attack" or a "stroke" when in reality, you died from taking a pharmaceutical.
But if you want to live a healthier, happier and pain-free life, just say no to drugs and start feeding your body what it really needs: Nutrition. Real foods, high-density nutritional supplements, superfoods, etc. This is what the body needs to be healthy, and it's the solution that Big Pharma and the FDA are constantly trying to discredit because it actually works! It makes people healthier and causes Big Pharma to lose a customer (and a lifelong revenue source).
