We have become a world of pill poppers. You name the malady and there is a pill to pop for it.
I have read in many places that a lot of the pills we take are in fact placebos, they do nothing. Or they screw around with your brain.
Years ago, I had a problem with reflux caused by an ulcer that was caused by the anti inflamtories I was taking for a broken hip. The specialist gave me some pills, sure, stopped the pain. I then discovered how it stopped the pain. The medication simply told my brain to ignore it; the problem was still there.
More than a year later my own doctor told me this, and changed me to a medication that helped heal the ulcer and so stop the pain.
Last week, I posted this…
And it made me wonder where doctors lost the plot.
Recently, I read this post:
Here’s the opening gambit.
“Worried about gun control? Yes, of course, let’s demolish the Second Amendment and instead let the “Doctor”, hand us death, faster than any bullet…
Mr. President, trust this when I tell you, that my own doctor, FDA and all the processed foods in our super-markets, will kill me quicker than any gun ever will.
If you get sick in USA and your family is not on Forbes list of the most
richest wealthiest (there’s a difference) and influential people in America… you’re fucked.”
