The word is out that Big Pharma, masquerading as the FDA, has now classified DMSA, one of the chelators we have used for heavy metal chelation, as a prescription-only drug.
Never mind that I and others on the group have safely used the chelator in low doses for YEARS.
I’m sure they’re very, very, very concerned about people using DMSA inappropriately. /snark
They’ll trot out a few idiots who didn’t use it properly and became ill…and use them as a reason to take it away from all of us who were using it properly and getting well.
…because Big Pharma wants it all, folks. They want it all. Billions and billions of dollars in profits is not enough.
Never mind that most drugs that Big Pharma puts out there cause more heartache and more physical illness with side effects.
Who’s paying your doctor? While the Sunshine Act is a good start, it doesn’t appear to give the public all the information they need–what companies are the doctors invested in? This will absolutely affect their prescribing and from the quote in the article, below, it will affect the very care people receive:
Even with all the new information coming online this fall, the Sunshine Act will not capture all the financial forces that motivate physicians. For instance, many interventional cardiologists are paid for each procedure they perform, such as implanting stents that prop open clogged arteries. The more stents cardiologists implant, the more they are paid.
So…what’s to stop the doctor from telling you that you have heart disease when you don’t? How are you going to know that he/she got paid $$$ to put a stent in you that you didn’t need?
It’s no wonder that doctors are not recommending gluten free diets or more proactive prevention–those that are invested in drug companies or get paid for certain procedures aren’t going to tell the patient that there are ways to prevent it or even reverse the damage –through diet, exercise, and reducing your toxic exposure/load.
Related to this, I found a page on the poor animals being used for our entertainment…being drugged out of their minds to keep them complacent. It is criminal what we do to animals.
It’s interesting that I’ve looked through pages of research terms for the amount of people dying from Rx drugs every year–and as yet have come up empty handed. I’ll keep searching and be back if I find the info.
