When it comes to the pharmaceutical industry, know that they are not your friend. When we are fighting a disease, most of us want prescriptions, hoping pills will help us feel better. We assume that with the rigorous testing that goes into pharmaceutical drugs in this country, we will receive the very best, at an affordable price that we are able to handle. The reality… big pharma doesn’t make money by curing people of diseases. The only way they make money is by keeping people sick and dependent on their costly drugs.
It has been shown time and time again in the news. Big pharma is only interested in making as much money as possible, and they are often targeting the very same people who are reliant on their drugs. While it’s true there are people truly do require pharmaceutical intervention, such as those who need the EpiPen for an allergic reaction. The sad thing is that pharmaceutical companies have convinced millions of people that they need to be on medications (or their health will suffer and they may even die). In fact, these people may not need them at all.
No matter what kind of health condition you are dealing with, whether it is diabetes or a different disease, you should always be wary when drugs are quickly prescribed, especially when words like “lifesaving” and “critical” are being used. Is the prescribed drug something that you really need to take for improving your health, or is the pharmaceutical company trying to find a new, lifelong customer to help it make even more money? You may be surprised at how many times the latter is the reality. This may not only hurt your wallet each month, but also harm your overall health, because when you take prescriptions without any lifestyle changes, you are actually causing more issues while covering up the causes of your health problems.
