Is there such a thing as a safe drug

HOW SAFE IS SAFE?

 

 

Are Some Drugs Safe?

 

The truth is that even the so-called “safe” drugs aren’t totally harmless.  In an average twelve-month period, more than 1.5 million hospitalized people suffer from the side effects of the drugs and therapy they receive there.  Aspirin alone sends about 1,600 people to the hospital each year who die from gastric bleeding.

 

Drug interaction also creates a serious problem.  Some individual drugs may be relatively benign, but taken together they can be “deadly.”  According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average American senior citizen is given more than fifteen prescriptions each year.  Sometimes, these come from doctors who aren’t aware of the other medications the patient may be taking.  This could lead to tragedy if the drugs cause a toxic reaction.

 

B. J. Palmer said….

 “All the drugs in the world cannot adjust or align a subluxated vertebrae.”  Why is the legal drug situation out of hand?  We know that in the U.S., the medical doctors are part of the problem because they write 1.6 billion drug prescriptions each and every year.  In seventy-five percent of all office visits to a M.D., drugs are prescribed.

 

But patients have to shoulder part of the blame also.  They seldom question their doctors and rarely request drug-free care, probably because most want a “quick-fix” rather than a slower, more sensible approach to health.

 

Finally, a great deal of blame fails to the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry which spends more than $10 billion each year…marketing its products which is much more than they spend on researching the safety of taking these drugs.  If the tranquilizer, Prozac, is a reasonable alternative to dealing with problems, how much of a reach is it to use marijuana or cocaine or worse?

 

Whether you want to believe this or not, whether you agree with me or not, adults design the paradigms.  It’s the pattern we set that our kids follow.  The next time you pop a drug, stop and consider what you’re telling your children without saying a word.

daily toxins in our food

How many chemicals are you exposed to on a daily basis? There's no way to know for sure, but chances are toxic chemicals are in your food and many items you touch hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day.

What is known that your toxic burden is largely related to your purchasing decisions and lifestyle. While environmental pollution is certainly a factor, primary routes of chronic exposure include your diet, and personal care and household products.

Tests have confirmed that those who eat non-organic foods and use chemical-based products tend to have far higher levels of toxins in their system. Your choice of building materials and furniture can also play a role, as many contain toxic chemicals like flame retardants.

Toxins in Food and Plastics Are Fueling Chronic Disease

Health statistics suggest the toxic burden is becoming too great for children and adults alike, and toxins in our food appear to play a primary role.

According to Joseph E. Pizzorno,1 founding president of Bastyr University, toxins in the modern food supply are now "a major contributor to, and in some cases the cause of, virtually all chronic diseases."

Dr. David Bellinger, a professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School has expressed similar concerns. According to his estimates, Americans have lost a total of 16.9 million IQ points due to exposure to organophosphate pesticides.2
