(NaturalNews) We live in a world where corporate profit is more important than consumer health. Because our diets, for the most part suck, we turn to Rx drugs for health and survival. Before getting into why Rx drugs? Let's talk a walk on the wild side.

It's a Friday or Saturday night, nothing going on, so you decide to take in a flick. You get to the theater, buy your ticket and decide to get some munchies so you can enjoy the movie better. What are your options?

You might be able to get some Nachos replete with 800 calories and about 40 to 50 grams of fat. What's the problem in getting way more than half the recommended total fat for one day? Then, Nachos have even more sodium than popcorn and at least 45% of the daily limit.

You could also opt for Pretzels, which exceed by far the daily limit of sodium as well and are nothing more than white flour flavored by salt.

Last but not least you settle for the old standby, buttered popcorn and a large or jumbo soda. It does a body good to wash all that other stuff down with 96 to 174 grams of sugar, or about 24 to 44 teaspoons of the sweet white stuff and anywhere from 384 to 696 calories.

Bear in mind that is but one day out of the week. And yet, on a daily basis we might be subjected to taking any or all of the following to combat something, while not really caring about the side effects. So, lets put it all into perspective.

Advair is taken for asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is a fancy way of saying you have trouble breathing. But do you even stop to consider the side effects of your asthma getting worse, your adrenal function worsening, your bone density lessening, your immune system getting weaker, or slowing the growth in your kids?

Chantix is taken for trying to quit your smoking habit. But did you know that it causes strange or really vivid dreams, increases your risk of heart problems, increases your hostility, makes you more agitated, creates depression and induces suicidal thoughts?

Cialis and Viagra are taken for erectile dysfunction. But do you really need the increased back pain, muscle aches, sudden decrease or loss of hearing or the fact that your private part might be standing at attention for four hours or more? When that happens you might be frowned upon in a crowded bus or subway.

Cymbalta is used for relieving depression or taking too much Chantix, generalized anxiety disorder, chronic osteoarthritis or lower-back pain, fibromyalgia or diabetic neuropathic pain. Betcha can't wait for the dizziness, liver problems, low blood pressure and fainting, problems with peeing, higher blood pressure leading to stroke or suicidal thoughts in young people.

Humira addresses rheumatoid arthritis and plaque psoriasis but brings about severe fungal infections, tuberculosis and cancer.

Lipitor will lower your cholesterol and give you the joys of muscle pain or weakness, liver damage, kidney problems and/or kidney failure.

Lovaza will lower your triglycerides but cause you to burp more, change your sense of taste and increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Lyrica is used for fibromyalgia; in case the Cymbalta didn't work, and address nerve pain due to diabetes or shingles. So what if you put on weight, see your hands and feet swell up, start having severe allergic reactions, and the ever-popular suicidal thoughts or actions?

Reclast is the answer to osteoporosis. But it's a trade-off. Get rid of the osteoporosis but welcome mental confusion, blurred vision and trouble emptying your bladder.

Seroquel XR is the solution to schizophrenia, bipolar depression and treatment-resistant depression. But, then again, why would you care if you rapidly gain weight, see your blood sugar and cholesterol climb making you a candidate for stroke or heart attack, a higher death risk if you are older with dementia, or you are young and can't wait for those suicidal thought to inundate your mind?

Toviaz is the answer to an overactive bladder. I guess it's better to have your bladder behave normally and worry about having severe kidney problems, loss of bone in your jaw, and extreme pain in the bones, joints or muscles later.

Uloric treats gout. Yea, I can now walk pain free but what do I do about my new liver problems, my endless joint pains and rashes springing up all over my body?

So, the next time you watch a TV commercial for Rx drugs whether it's the now happy lady going to the party, or the couple happily awaiting that blissful sex-filled moment, or that no longer depressed woman going on the boat with her friends, pay close attention to the soft background voice gently and rapidly spewing out the negative side effects. It could save your life.

Oh yeah, just about all those bodily symptoms depicted above can be relieved by adopting an organic vegan diet, free from GMOs, processed foods, diet anything (aspartame, neotame or splenda) and MSG or its euphemisms - autolyzed yeast, yeast extract, and anything hydrolyzed, modified or textureized.

Aloha!

About the author:
I have been doing a weekly radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called "Health Talk". In 2007 I was "forced" to get a Masters degree in Nutrition because of all the doctors that would call in asking for my credentials. They do not call in anymore. Going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com enables you, among other things, to listen to the shows. I am an activist. In addition to espousing an organic vegan diet for optimum health, I am strongly opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods, MSG, aspartame, fluoridation and everything else that the pimps (Big Pharma, Monsanto and the large food companies) and the hookers (the doctors, the government agencies, the public health officials, and the mainstream media) thrust upon us, the tricks.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child I developed asthma. After taking the organic sulfur crystals (they are harvested from the pine trees in Louisiana) in November of 2008 for 10 days my asthma reversed and has not come back over 4 years later, 18 cases, so far, of autism have been reversed, as has cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, osteoarthritis, joint pain, astigmatism, gum disease, increased sexual activity, heavy metal and radiation elimination, parasite elimination, free radicals elimination, faster athletic recovery time, increased blood circulation, reduced inflammation, resistance to getting the flu, reduction of wrinkles, allergy reduction, reduced PMS and monthly period pain, nausea, migraines and so much more. And it's only possible because of the oxygen it releases that floods the cells of the body. The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids. You can find out more about this incredible nutrient also on my website - www.healthtalkhawaii.com -.
