Learn About the Criminal
Behavior of the Pharmaceutical Industry—Save Yourself and
who believe that there is a “pill for every ill” and the
next miracle is going to save them from a miserable life and
an early death are wrong. You must resolve this
misunderstanding so that you can begin to focus on what will
make a difference; and that is no-cost, side-effect-free
changes in the way you eat and live.
The pharmaceutical industry
has no morals—they will lie and cheat to make a profit no
matter how much it hurts the ones you love. That is a fact
you can verify with a little reading. Here are 3 very
valuable recommendations from me. These two books are among
the best summaries I have read about this subject—they are
entertaining and easy to understand for the non-professional

BTW: Don’t expect your doctor
to help you defend yourself against the drug industry—many
are in bed with these crooks and here is some recent
evidence to support that claim from the September 24, 2005
issue of the British Medical Journal: One of the
largest doctors' groups in the United States, the
American Academy of Family Physicians, has refused to rent
exhibition space to No Free Lunch, a group
that says that pharmaceutical industry promotions
are harming patients. However, this group has
agreed to rent space at its annual scientific assembly to be
held in San Francisco from 28 September to 2 October, to
the fast food giant, McDonalds, as well as Distilled
Spirits Council of the United States, Abbott
Laboratories, Coca-Cola, AstraZeneca, Boehringer
Ingelheim, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, and Pfizer,
Free Lunch is an organization that tries to encourage
doctors and other healthcare professionals to
provide high quality care based upon unbiased scientific
evidence rather than on biased pharmaceutical
promotion. The group, based in New York, urges
doctors to not accept gifts—from pens and prescription pads
to all-expense paid “vacations” or free-food—provided at
noon-time advertising conferences held at every hospital in
the USA and free-doughnuts brought in by
provocatively-dressed drug reps.
