What is wrong with meds?

On the positive side, meds do little or nothing for you. They do nothing but suppress some of your symptoms that you bring upon yourself by eating the wrong foods and using the wrong personal care products.

On the megative side, meds can have adverse reactions as well as side effects that can kill you.
  • Drug interactions: The usual issue is that too many drugs are prescribed and used, and when your doctor prescribes two or more drugs for you, he (or she) can kill you. At least 106,000 people die every year in the United States, thanks to adverse drug reactions and thanks to doctors just like your doctor.

  • Side effects: Drugs often have side-effects, and the side-effects are often mistaken for new disease symptoms, often leading to further drugging, and further unnecessary medical procedures, which further increase your risk of death. And we already know that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States.
Example #1: Persistent morning cough: If you take an ACE-inhibitor drug like Lisinopril® for hypertension, you may develop an ACE-cough. What is it like? It's a dry, hacking cough; a persistent morning cough.

Why do you develop the ACE-cough? Because, as you get older, your kidneys are increasingly less able to clear the by-products of analog (artificial, manmade, unhealthy, unnatural, unsoluble) chemicals from your bloodstream.

When these insoluble by-products, called kinins, aren't filtered out of your blood, they lodge themselves into your lungs, as your body's attempt to expel the kinins through your lungs. The result is persistent, long-lasting morning cough (ACE-cough).

Once you develop an ACE-cough, chances are you'll be treated for asthma, bronchitis, laryngitis, sinusitis, sore throat, and many other respiratory conditions, and all of them are the results of the ACE-inhibitor drug that you take, or used to take.

Once you develop an ACE-cough, you will have a cough that won't go away. Even if you stop taking the drug. Why? Because until all the kinins eventually find their way out of your lungs, your ACE-cough can linger for many months, even after you stop the drug.

Example #2: Mad cow disease: Many meds contain animal products. And, despite the FDA's repeated (and false) assertions to the contrary, animal products, especially beef products, aren't safe. They're associated with renderings that can give you mad cow (bovine spongiform encephalopathy), Creutzfeldt-Jakob, or Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease. The mad cow disease is fatal. The first symptom of it is an unsteady gait. ...More >>
