The Failure of Conventional Medicine (2)

The medicines that we are given to improve our health, or to make us better, actually make us sicker than we were before we took them. 

In fact, conventional medical drugs actually cause disease, and death. And we are not being told about this. Hence this regular weekly newspaper - which will bring you articles from the internet which will inform you about what is happening, when you GP, the NHS, the Dept of Health, and the mainstream media refuse to do so.

Fosamax can cause severe fractures of the femur, and brittle bones. Fosamax is a drug used for Osteoporosis, and if you are not careful, doctors will still prescribe it for you. In the USA, there is actually a condition called 'Fossy-Jaw' which causes the disintegration of the jaw. Fosamax is also known to be bad for your heart, your liver and your stomach.

Psychoactive Drugs are the cause of most Mental Illness? The facts given in this article are quite astounding, and certainly deeply worrying at the time when Mental Health problems are reaching epidemic proportions. For example, did you know that in 2007 the number of disabled mentally-ill children had increased 35 times since 1990?

Asthma drugs may actually increase the risk of asthma attacks. So not only has the number of children suffering from Asthma increased over recent decades, the drug taken and inhaled by those children are probably make the situation worse.

Even drugs like Statins, which we have been told are 'entirely safe' for decades, are now known to be unsafe. This article outlines the case against Statin drugs, and suggests that heart failure, pneumonia, nerve damage - and many other diseases can be contracted by people, the increasing numbers of people, who take them believing them to be safe.

But surely antibiotics are safe? Well, no, they are not. Researchers have now discovered that a common antibiotic is a killer! Antibiotics have been found to cause a range of life-threatening reactions, including liver failure, and hypoglycaemia.

So what about painkillers? Common painkillers. This article, by the appropriately named organisation 'What doctor's don't tell you' (WDDTY) suggests that certain NSAID painkillers may become another Vioxx. (Vioxx, if you had not heard, is thought to have caused about 140,000 heart attacks, and 60,000 deaths before it was withdrawn).

And did you know that some flu vaccines has been withdrawn in Scotland? Well, it was not exactly well publicised! The vaccine was withdrawn because it was causing "a  higher than normal frequency of adverse reactions". You can see, by reading the article, how officials have dismissed this withdrawal as unimportant!

Probably a worse situation has arisen in Australia regarding the flu vaccines. This article says that Australia's drug regulator is demanding an explanation from the drug manufacturer "after it emerged the company knew two years ago about research suggesting a sharp rise in fevers linked to its seasonal flu vaccine, but omitted this from information given to doctors".

Actually, the withholding of vital information about drugs from patients (and doctors too) seems to be quite routine within the world of ConMed. I mentioned the painkilling drug Vioxx, above. The disease-inducing-effects (DIEs) of this drug were known about by the drug company long before the incidents of heart failures and deaths were made public.

Indeed, prescription drugs are now so dangerous they are killing more people than so-called 'illegal' drugs. Perhaps on this basis, prescription drugs should be made illegal.

But, of course, they won't be. ConMed drugs are too profitable for the Big Pharma drug companies. And Big Pharma companies have far too much influence over governments, national health services, drug regulatory bodies, and even our GPs and doctors. So we don't get to know.

However, you may well hear plenty of attacks on homeopathy - or, indeed, any other medical therapy that is safer, and more effective than this awful drug-based medicine. The reason for this is obvious. ConMed is failing. People are beginning to realise it is failing. And an increasing number of people are looking for alternative way of treating their illnesses, and remaining well. From Big Pharma's point of view, this is not good - it will damage their profitability!

What we are dealing with here is a system of medicine that is failing its patients. But it is a system of medicine that is so profitable, so influential and powerful within the political and medical establishment, that we are not being told about it.
