The moral collapse of Western Medicine
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) How in the world did the U.S. change from having the best scientists in the world who were discovering vitamins, minerals, vaccines and cures for disease, to modern times, where the only medicine available is toxic with horrific side effects, and where nutrient-void, chemical-laden food is being sold at almost every restaurant and grocery store, all in the name of corporate profits that keep the public sick and in need of expensive care?
In the early 1900's, America was chock full of small farms and families who ate fresh food from those farms. Cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's barely existed because the soil was rich in nutrients and minerals, and if you did get sick, a doctor would come to your home and give you some herbal tinctures or natural remedies, and that was that.
Then, after World War II, many families left their rural farms and moved closer to factories and began eating processed food that was canned and bagged, lacking the nutrients they had just a decade earlier. Then, fast food operations like McDonalds and Burger King opened up franchises all over America, feeding the public saturated fat and sugar-loaded meals that were hot, cheap, and convenient.
The United States of America is the land of the free and the home of ... toxic food and venomous medicine, with chronic care waiting for its next 80 million victims. Here are some basic statistics of a country riddled with disease:
• Cancer: 1,500,000 diagnosed each year; over 50% will die of it.
• Diabetes: 25,000,000 people are diabetics right now (including children); 80,000,000 are borderline.
• Heart Disease and Strokes: 81,000,000 (every third adult) has some type of cardiovascular disease.
• Alzheimer's Disease: 5,400,000 have Alzheimer's right now (every 8th senior)
• Birth defects: One in every 33 babies is born with one (accounts for 20% of all infant deaths). (http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/data.html)
Most U.S. politicians have no ethics and no moralsOnce upon a time, insider trading was a scary law that meant prison time for those who violated it. Now, politicians make money off wars they declare themselves, and health insurance companies invest in fast food operations that slowly kill their own clients. Pharmaceutical companies (Merck, Pfizer, Bayer, Bristol Meyers, etc.) are run by CEO's who served as Governors, Senators, and heads of the FDA, and the Supreme Court itself seats Judges who worked for major pharmaceutical firms, and who will return to those jobs after writing new legislation to benefit their current investments.
Make no mistake, the pesticides used on most U.S. farms give humans cancer, and the politicians who support genetically mutated foods know it. GMO means that the seedlings of fruits and vegetables are spliced with toxic pesticides in a lab, so even if you wash off your food, you are still eating dioxin, the same toxic chemical (Agent Orange) the U.S. dumped on Vietnam which gave our own soldiers cancer.

The agencies you trust so much (FDA/CDC/AMA/CDC/ACS/Major Insurance Companies) support toxic food and toxic medicinePoliticians are supposed to represent the greater good of the people, but now politics is about bastardizing the system for as much money as possible before getting ousted from office 4 years later. Food, medicine and vaccines have become toxic catapults for profiteering by Big Pharma and Government agencies (undercover corporations).
Ever wonder how health insurance companies drum up future business? They invest in corporations whose products cause chronic degenerative disease, driving people's health care costs through the roof. The U.S. and Canadian health insurance giants own nearly $2 billion worth of stock in fast food giants like McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, and Taco Bell.
