(NaturalNews) In a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers concluded that omega 3 supplements, like natural fish oil, "do not prevent cardiovascular disease." But these studies were on high risk patients with known heart problems and on every med from stain drugs to ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, aspirin and no telling what else. In addition, these studies were short-term with as little as 400 mg of fish oil and some were even mixed with chemical based margarine. This report was also done with the deliberate exclusion of many beneficial studies with the same risk groups.
Studies and reports like this come out to make natural supplements look bad and make toxic drugs look good. Big Pharma is out to counterfeit and patent everything natural that is good for you. Without that patent, Big Pharma cannot control the money, and it's really all about the money. There is an old Big Pharma trick of coming out with a patented form of a natural supplement and then dissing the natural with every bit of bad studies possible.
Case and point
Fish oil based Lovaza is a DRUG that has side effects - including death. Treatment with Lovaza can actually increase LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). Lovaza does not exist in nature; man has to make it chemically. Why do we need an estherized version of fish oil? We don't... Esterification strips nutrient cofactors away and renders the God-given fish oil form less nutritious.
Glaxo Smith Kline says they make Lovaza from all natural fish oil and claim that their chemicalized nutrient (drug), along with diet changes and exercise, can lower your blood cholesterol.
Diet changes and exercise lowers cholesterol without toxic medications! According to the Mayo Clinic, "Lifestyle changes can help reduce cholesterol, keep you off cholesterol-lowering medications or enhance the effect of your medications." Of course, the cholesterol witch-hunt is all bogus as high cholesterol is only a symptom of inflammation in the body. Big Pharma meds only treat or mask symptoms while causing a plethora of "side effects".
Well here's another news flash: There are no such things as "side effects" as they are all effects. Make no mistake, ALL drugs have side effects, even aspirin. If you take any drug, even once, you will have side effects.
Big Pharma is not interested in your health
Gwen Olson, a fifteen-year veteran of the pharmaceutical industry, says that pharmaceutical companies are not in the business of health and healing, but instead, in the business of disease maintenance and symptom management. They are not in the business to cure cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes or heart disease because, if they were, they would be in the business of putting themselves out of business. The Big Pharma juggling-act-balance is keeping you sick enough to need their concocted drugs and well enough to stay alive - and paying your bills.
Supplements do work
Contrary to what your Big Pharma doctor may say; supplements work! The use of dietary supplements in the United States has increased from less than 20 percent of the population in 1970 to approximately 50 percent according to the last survey conducted by the National Institutes of Health. In this survey, individuals report using dietary supplements to increase energy, maintain strength, enhance performance, maintain health and immune system function, and prevent nutritional deficiencies.
But there is a dark side to health supplements. Exposures to vitamins, herbs, protein powders, and botanicals accounted for more than 3,000 admissions to health care facilities last year. About 500 were described as moderate to severe outcomes, and there was even ONE death by vitamin! Now compare this to the medical mayhem of about 783,936 deaths by pharmaceutical drugs each year... there is no comparison.
Most people don't need a medical doctor and drugs, they need a good nutritionist.
