As I look around and I notice the rising increase in health cost and the rise of more pharmaceutical drugs, I pose the question are Americans getting sicker? I believe the answer to this question is yes, and I also believe there is an explanation behind it. The reason more and more people our getting sick is because of our environment. It’s the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Our water is contaminated our food is pumped full of preservatives and the air is full of toxins and chemicals.
Has anyone noticed the increase in autism commercials? And there has been a dramatic increase in autism cases in the United States. Some people credit this to awareness and earlier detection methods. But I personally believe as well as some scientist that it could be because of environmental factors. Some scientist believes pesticides and chemicals in house hold products could be a contributing factor. I don’t know what the cause is but I do know who is benefiting from it and that is the medical community. Like all things in America medicine is big business.
Pharmaceutical companies as well as producers of medical equipment benefit greatly from you being sick. They want you on drugs and they want you taking medicine for the rest of your life. Think about it! Look at the increase in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, fetal and birth defects and various other mental conditions in which medication is prescribed. With all the advances in medicine why are diseases not being cured? The answer is that it doesn’t make money to cure diseases and conditions. Money is made by managing them. Pharmaceutical companies wouldn’t make any money if you took one pill or treatment and you were cured. The better option is to keep you buying various pills that will keep you alive and keep your condition under control so you can continue to buy more pills and they can make more money.
For the moment most of this is speculation, but it makes plenty of sense. If the medical community is behind some of these things then I would like an investigation to find out. The only thing we can do for the moment is try to live and eat healthy. Try to eat more organic foods and avoid processed and preserved foods and meats. If I had the resources to grow my own food and clean my own water I would because something is not right. But don’t just take my word for it do your own research and never stop in pursuit of TRUTH.
