The Cost of Dementia

This blog should be read in conjunction with the one I published on 20th September, "Dementia. Is it caused by ConMed Drugs?"

The news that the cost of treating dementia represents more that 1% of the world's gross domestic product is stunning. The 2010 World Alzheimer Report claims that the world will spend about $604 billion this year. Moreover, it says that the bulk of these costs is spent on expensive medications and hospital treatment, as well as residential and nursing care. And the cost of dementia care is likely only to rise!

Of course, this is just one reason that Big Pharma companies have become so powerful. They produce drugs that cause 'side-effects', which are really diseases. And then they produce drugs that deal with the diseases they cause.

This is great business - but very poor medicine!

When these two blogs are taken together it begins to be possible to calculate the enormous cost of Conventional Medicine, and its dangerous and useless drugs. Dementia, and Alzheimers Disease in particular, has risen to epidemic proportions during the last 50-60 years, and as such, it is just one of a multitude of chronic diseases that have developed during the expansion of Big Pharma, and its toxic drugs and treatments.

Conventional Medicine and the creation of illness

Yet the mainstream media will not investigate this, and other similar connections between epidemic chronic disease and prescription drugs. Nor will government or the NHS. Big Pharma is just too big, too powerful - its power based on its ability to create disease.

The time for homeopathy, and other safe traditional therapies, is coming. But the problem of getting the message over to the general public continues to be immense.
