Real life problems…you never think about. (Out of sight, out of mind.) Many of you will not read this because of the length, but you should if you care at all about yourself, your family, and future generations.
“Research has shown that the food additives used in hundreds of children’s foods and drinks can cause temper tantrums and disruptive behavior. A Government-funded study confirms what many parents have long suspected about the effect of chemicals put into sweets, biscuits and foods.”
These behaviors are often treated with drugs. Drugs with side effects….this is only one possible reason why we wind up with crazed young people wielding guns, and a myriad of undiagnosable illnesses causing a strain on our healthcare, and economical systems.
If you look around, you will find, that healthy alternatives, such as organic foods, or even a salad price, as compared to a burger, or hot dog, put many people in a position where they cannot afford to eat healthy, non GMO, preservative free foods. Let alone feed their families on them.
Also, many naturopathic, and homeopathic remedies are poo poo’ed by main stream medicine, not offered, and in many cases not covered by insurance. (Notice recent suspicious deaths in the medical field.)
It is not just kids, and it’s not just our food…
It is in our water, in our air, in our animals, and in the insects that we live with.
Nearly 1 in 2 Americans (133 million) has a chronic condition. (Physical, mental, or both.)
There are 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease reported each year according to the CDC.
In the US, the number of people with MS is estimated to be about 400,000, with approximately 10,000 new cases diagnosed every year (that’s 200 new cases per week).
(I will not list every chronic / invisible illness here.)
By 2020, about 157 million Americans will be afflicted by chronic illnesses, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
That number is projected to increase by more than one percent per year by 2030, resulting in an estimated chronically ill population of 171 million.
About 31 percent of adolescents suffer from at least one moderate or severe chronic condition such as asthma, depression, or ADD/ADHD.
Sixty percent are between the ages of 18 and 64
90% of seniors have at least one chronic disease and 77% have two or more chronic diseases.
In the United States 4 in 5 health care dollars (78%) are spent on behalf of people with chronic conditions.
Do the math.
BUT IS HAVING AN ILLNESS REALLY THAT BIG OF DEAL?
The divorce rate among the chronically ill is over 75 percent.
Depression is 15-20% higher for the chronically ill than for the average person.
Various studies have reported that physical illness or uncontrollable physical pain are major factors in up to 70% of suicides, and more than 50% of these suicidal patients were under 35 years of age.
Chronic diseases—heart disease, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and stroke—are the leading causes of death in the United States.
Seven of every 10 deaths in the U.S. are caused by chronic conditions; heart disease is the leading cause of death among both men and women, followed by cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases—diabetes is seventh.
Chronic, disabling conditions cause major limitations in activity for more than one of every 10 Americans, or 25 million people.
Mental health and physical health are fundamentally linked. People living with a serious mental illness are at higher risk of experiencing a wide range of chronic physical conditions. Conversely, people living with chronic physical health conditions experience depression and anxiety at twice the rate of the general population. Co-existing mental and physical conditions can diminish quality of life and lead to longer illness duration and worse health outcomes. This situation also generates economic costs to society due to lost work productivity and increased health service use.
Yeah it’s a big deal!
So, you are sitting there wondering why all of these people are ill. Why are there school shootings, why are there so many suicides, why are all of these people sick, out of work, homeless, and dying…only to be shunned and ignored by society? We are being poisoned. Not just by our air, water, food, and insects…but by drugs….drugs that are meant to help us…or so we are told.
Using a computer program, scientists analyzed 5,600 drug labels and more than 500,000 labeled effects. They found that the average drug comes with a list of 70 potential reactions, according to researchers.
In fact, the more commonly prescribed drugs averaged around 100 side effects each, with some drugs containing as many as 525 listed reactions.
“The greatest number of side effects was found in antidepressants, antiviral medications and newer treatments for restless leg syndrome and Parkinson’s disease. In general, medications typically used by psychiatrists and neurologists had the most complex labels, while drugs used by dermatologists and ophthalmologists had the least.”
You might not realize that more than 700,000 people visit U.S. emergency rooms each year as a result of adverse drug reactions.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), adverse drug reactions from drugs that are properly prescribed and properly administered cause about 106,000 deaths per year, making prescription drugs the fourth-leading cause of death in the United States.
Given that the FDA, as well as the CDC are government agencies, and have a propensity to under-estimate things, I would believe the numbers to be much higher.
Tiny amounts of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, hormones, mood stabilizers, and other drugs — are in our drinking water supplies, according to a media report.
In an investigation by the Associated Press, drinking water supplies in 24 major metropolitan areas were found to include drugs.
According to the investigation, the drugs get into the drinking water supply through several routes: some people flush unneeded medication down toilets; other medicine gets into the water supply after people take medication, absorb some, and pass the rest out in urine or feces. Some pharmaceuticals remain even after wastewater treatments and cleansing by water treatment plants, the investigation showed.
Although levels are low — reportedly measured in parts per billion or trillion — and utility companies contend the water is safe, experts from private organizations and the government say they can’t say for sure whether the levels of drugs in drinking water are low enough to discount harmful health effects.
An then there are the chemicals…which include: Fluoride, Mercury, PCB’s, MtBE, Hexachlorobenzene (HCB), Chlorine, lead, arsenic, DCPA, Dioxin, and DDT to name but a few.
All of these chemicals (and more) have been found in water. While the amount of these chemicals in water is usually not enough to cause significant harm, the possibility of long-term effects still exists. Here are some of the negative health defects13 caused by excess chemicals in the water:
Toxic chemicals in water can cause brain damage. In one study, children who were exposed to high levels of fluoride had lower than normal IQ’s.
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia may be caused by lethal amounts of fluoride.
According to New Jersey’s Department of Health, male children who lived in areas with fluoridated water experienced two to seven times more cases of bone cancer than other male children.
Toxic chemicals in water can cause birth defects and prenatal deaths.
Excess chemicals in the water have also been linked to problems with the immune system. (Many of our chronic illnesses are immune related.)
To sum this all up, we have bad food, bad water, bad bugs, and bad drugs. None of these seem to be a concern for our elected officials. Why is that? It is more lucrative for them to keep us sick. They will try to manage our parenting skills when our kids misbehave…instead of fixing a possible issue…they will ruin families, and throw drugs at us. They will try to mandate shots, which are filled with poison, and attempt to silence any opposition to Big Pharma & GMO’ers. They will blame us rather than take responsibility. They will tell the media what to tell us, and we will follow blindly lest we be judged criminals. They will take away our rights, our guns, our lives, and our country, in order to fill their already overflowing pockets with money. We will be too sick or distracted by fabricated issues to do anything about it.
Just thought I should let you know.
