How Many Epidemics Do We Have and Who Cares?

Published by at 7:36 am under Ailments,Health

The government agencies that were supposed to protect us from epidemics have spent their time protecting large corporations, especially the pharmaceutical companies.  Simple guidelines that would have assured Americans the protection that their immune systems needed were never put in place.  The majority of our food is of poor quality.  Much of the food has been refined to such a point that even rats could not survive on it.  Approximately 10,000 chemicals have been allowed into our food water and air.  Of those chemicals, approximately 3,000 have never been tested for safety. 

When was the last time modern medicine cured anything?  My bet is at least 70 years.  They ask us to donate money, and they get large amounts of research grants worth billions from the government.  They come up with a new medicine loaded with side effects but no cure.  That works out for the pharmaceutical companies. If there is no cure, you take the medicine for the rest of your life.  Take their medicine (that you paid for) long enough and you will get the side effects.  You then add a score of other medicines for the side effects of the side effects.  Soon your medicine cabinet is full and you are a doddering pudding ready for assisted care.

Below is the short list of 10 epidemics in the United States.  Yes, the short-list; I just picked out the diseases as they came to my mind.  Try it, I decided to stop at 10, see what you can do.  Every one is an epidemic, with no cure in sight.

Definition of Epidemic, Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
(Med.) Common to, or affecting at the same time, a large number in a community; — applied to a disease which, spreading widely, attacks many persons at the same time; as, an epidemic disease; an epidemic catarrh, fever, etc.

I seem to remember when the AIDS epidemic hit, that there was a huge uproar and scramble over who was going to be in charge of the research.  Of course, it was never cured but there are a lot of expensive drugs for the lifetime battle.  The above epidemics have not gotten much press.  That is because the medications are already making billions.  A cured patient does not make much money, but of course you knew that.  The latest ad for AIDS says there have been 26 million deaths so far; please send money for research.  I trust the people who are asking us for the money, but I’ve got a problem with where the money is going.  One question that occurred to me and maybe you wondered; how are they ever going to cure AIDS if they cannot stop a simple virus like herpes?  Which as they say above is incurable and is an epidemic.

    Computers have already revolutionized the way we live and work. Have they changed the way we think? After reading all posts I think they have. People, why do you write what you hear somewhere, not your own thoughts?

    Yes, I can see where you are coming from but I think your criticism completely missed the mark here. I do list articles and statistics referring to diseases and epidemics but that is only to make my point. The point of this blog is what your critical comment is missing. The point of the article came from an original thought in my mind, the observation that there are many epidemics and no cures. There may be articles like mine, but this one came from my original thoughts on the subject.

    I always like to search on UTube for videos on effects of breast cancer, you can learn a lot about effects of breast cancer although like blogs you have to filter out the dross. This was a better article than most. Thanks.
