In an extraordinarily blunt and surprisingly refreshing warning recently given by a medical adviser to the Food and Drug Administration, Dr. Raeford Brown recently stated in an interview that nothing will be done to 'Big Pharma' for their role as the lead drug pushers in America's deadly opioid crisis because "Congress is owned by pharma".
And as we see in the graphic below taken from that Yahoo story, Democrat politicians and Republicans alike benefit from donations from 'Big Pharma'. And while there is no doubt that the pharmaceutical industry has brought life-saving medicines to the world, as even far-left Salon surprisingly reported back in August of 2016, 'big pharma' was helping to ensure that United States Veterans were losing the war at home while making America 'pain-free' for 'plutocrats'. From their story.:
"Those who corrupted veterans’ health care & those who profit from this country’s endless wars are one and the same."
“Some individuals and institutions actually benefit from an armed conflict that drags on and on. Those benefits are immediate and tangible. They come in the form of profits, jobs, and campaign contributions. For the military-industrial complex and its beneficiaries, perpetual war is not necessarily bad news.”
Bacevich is certainly right about war profiteers, but I believe we haven’t yet fully wrapped our minds around what that truly means. This is what we have yet to take in: today, the United States is the most unequal country in the developed world, and the wealth of the plutocrats on top is now so great that, when they invest it in politics, it’s likely that no elected government can stop them or the lucrative wars and “free markets” they exploit."
So we'll take a look below at some options to 'big pharma's poisons' that are readily available for all to use that come to us from nature. And while we are not doctors nor are we providing medical advice within this story but sharing stories of what has worked for us or others, in a very real TEOTWAWKI scenario, do you really think 'big pharma' will be around?
With the graphic above showing that members of both parties are receiving roughly the same amount of money from 'big pharma', and showing the money given to politicians by 'big pharma' has been accelerating steadily since the early 1990's, there is little doubt that Dr. Brown is correct in his assessment. Especially when we factor in the fact that these same people are also making a killing off of the endless wars while doing very little for the men and women fighting them, US Veterans.
And while some of 'big pharmas' medications absolutely save lives, and we'd never suggest that people not take the medications that have been prescribed to them by a doctor, other medications 'big pharma' has created have actually been them mimicking nature.
The creation of Western medicine starts with John D. Rockefeller (1839 – 1937) who was an oil baron and America’s first billionaire. In the 1800s, using ‘organic chemistry,’ or the chemistry of carbon, the petrochemical industries were created. In the 1800s, it came to light that various traditional herbal remedies contained active ingredients called ‘alkaloids.’
These alkaloids could often be produced synthetically by the petrochemical industries. Sometimes the active ingredient of a medicinal herb could be chemically modified and patented. This new business was called the ‘pharmaceutical industry.’ The resulting patent medicine could be sold at great profit, compared to the herb from which it was originally derived.
By the turn on the 20th century, Rockefeller controlled 90% of all oil production in the U.S. through a multitude of oil companies owned by him. There were only 1,000 cars in existence in 1900 that burned gasoline. Not much profit was to be found in cars. The petrochemical industry, however, was flourishing.
The pharmaceutical industries promised to be the most profitable part of the oil industry. Rockefeller invested heavily in the newly created pharmaceutical companies. He formed the Rockefeller Foundation in 1913 and focused on the pharmaceutical industries and medical education.
While cannabis was illegal nationwide for over 80 years before the last decade has brought about some relaxation of laws, especially in the medical marijuana field, just think about why 'big pharma' may have wanted to 'make illegal' a naturally growing plant that has the potential to do all of this.:
Helps regulate and defeat diabetes. Fights cancer. Helps with depression. Potential to fight autism. Regulates seizures in many. Helps to heal broken bones faster. Treats glaucoma. Relieves muscle spasms. Helps to slow the development of alzheimer's disease. Helps to relieve arthritis. Helps to treat those with PTSD. Helps regulate our metabolism. Treats nausea effectively. Helps chemotherapy patients to eat and survive. Helps to treat headaches and migraines.
And now, 'big pharma' is pushing Congress to make all natural Kratom illegal because it, too, is cutting hugely into their profits in the painkilling field. And while 'big pharmas' poisons are killing Americans EVERY DAY, kratom has proven over many years to be safe and extremely effective at alleviating very real pain in Americans. Yet 'big pharma' wants it criminalized because it cuts their profit margin. We've seen the way this will go should they be successful in 80+ years of horrific US cannabis policy.
The following books all take a look at natural health and some of our alternatives to 'big pharma's poisons'.
Please take note, the lists below are by no means even close to exhaustive with all of the different health ailments that people suffer from and all of the alternative and natural products to treat those ailments available so we absolutely welcome any suggestions you might have in the comment section below. Your suggestions could save lives.
So with US Congress clearly owned by 'big pharma' and many signs pointing at potential trouble ahead in America that could leave us as a shell of our former nation, with numerous alternatives to 'big pharma's poisons' readily available and many as close by as the nearest supermarket, we'd all be serving our families best by getting ready for whatever the future may bring.
