- Reflect On:How much would we discover if the medical industry put the same amount of resources into natural medicine as it does with ‘chemical’ medicine?
There’s a huge shift right now occurring within the medical industry. More and more people are starting to learn that modern medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have become more concerned with profit than they are with people.
Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, has explained that pharmaceutical companies can’t make money off of healthy people, which is why there is no funding for research. So, it’s not really surprising that drug companies would manufacture pills that have negative side effects, because then they can keep us sick.
Arnold Seymour Relman, a Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal, has also stated:
The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful. (source)(source)
Pharmaceutical companies play a significant role in controlling how doctors are educated, so it’s important to remain skeptical and do your own research on health.
When it comes to antibiotics, approximately 30% of oral antibiotics prescribed are completely unnecessary. This isn’t an uncommon trend for doctors, as many of them get compensated or praised for relying on drugs to treat their patients. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies often overstate the benefits of drugs and understate the risks, so many people don’t think twice when these drugs are prescribed to them.
