Prescription drugs often address the symptoms of disease that are caused by lifestyle choices. They are a “permission slip” to be unhealthy.
The United States is one of only two countries in the world that allow drug companies to advertise to the consumer. It has been estimated that over $4.5 billion is spent per year. They do not want you to be healthy. They want you to keep living the way you are and take their drugs.
Most prescriptions are for preventable diseases and you will be a life-long drug company customer if you do not change your lifestyle. I suggest being a lifelong customer to a gym or a farmer’s market.
