Fear anesthetizes us. It coerces us, making us believe we can do little on our own to prevent or treat disease. And forces whole nations to kneel at the alters of the drug industries. It’s a sad fact that pharmaceuticals have become the dope of modern man. And make no mistake, we are addicted. Last year between 3 and 5 billion prescriptions were written in the U.S. alone.
But the fear machine is well oiled by petrochemical dollars, and a near worldwide monopoly in health care. It works overtime to prevent the truth about dietary supplements from getting out to the public. Governments, particularly in Europe and the United States seem all to eager to comply with the robber barons of health care.
There are some who say this battle cannot be won. We are they David, they are the Goliath. But it’s too important to sit it out and allow the multinational corporations and the regulators to inform us what our freedoms should be. If we don’t demand medical freedom of choice we will lose it. It’s critical that the people of Europe, the people of Asia, Africa, the Americas and the rest of the world come together so we can protect our health freedom for our generation and those of the future.
