You need more medicine!

overmedicated

Currently circulating all across social media is the story about a CDC scientist admitting that their clinical study debunking the MMR vaccine and autism link was falsified.  Both pro-vax and anti-vax machines are going metal on metal at this point. Below is a video (anti-vax but factual) that describes this situation.  But before you watch it,  I want to talk about more than just vaccines. I want to talk about the medicated culture of the United States.

It seems increasingly common that medical intervention and pill popping are the common strategy for any ailment. However, we have reached a point of where we are literally killing ourselves. Whether this phenomenon is driven by big corporation profits, subjectivity of patients to the authority/trust of their doctor, or pursuit of the “quick fix” to get healthy, we are being driven into chronic health problems and even death.  Need examples?  I’m happy you asked:

-US administers most vaccines out of any country…To my readers around 25+ years of age – look at what vaccines you received compared to the massive number of vaccines children receive today.  Are we really any healthier?

-The US is 30th in the world for infant mortality.  Out of industrialized nations, the US leads in infant mortality.

Prescription drugs now account for more deaths than illegal drugs.

-Water Fluoridation is uniquely American.  97% of Europe does not fluoridate water.

– Corporation owned US won’t allow labeling of GMO products, yet the world says otherwise:

And while we may not be able to put our finger on any one cause for all of our ailements, the larger picture is clear…our medicine, food, and lifestyle may not be so “best in class” as we are all made to believe:

or conditions, such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, and
