As I was trying to get to on another person’s post, pharmaceutical companies and doctors today are ruling the world. As I stated about autism in my other comment, I, while having my own physical issues, have noticed how much people have to jump through hoops to get the medical help that is actually necessary today. As the article states, people today are prescribed more and more supplements to take, and this is actually harming the body. It is the same with prescription medicine. I went in for a knee injury and have been prescribed 3 different types of medications without them knowing what is really wrong with my knee. Medicine is the most important, prevalent, and notoriously scheming industry in the US today in my opinion. Also, with medicines, every time a new medicine comes out, it is almost always more expensive whether or not it has any health benefits over the other old treatment. Pharmaceutical companies prove that the US is just a capitalist society that’s more focused on money than the good of the nation as a whole. Has anyone else heard of cases where people get prescribed medicines and they either end up damaging their organs or just getting worse? What can we do?
