Food and pharmaceutical industries systematically degrading ordinary people?
Why don’t we have Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) labels on food items in this day and age? With all the information that we know currently relative to GMOs and their degradation of health, it is concerning that there is not enough uproar to label foods on shelves at grocery stores with GMO tags.
Over 90% of the corn and soy are GMO. One might think that his/her consumption of corn and soy is limited; however, if you read labels, you already know that most processed foods invariably contain ingredients that are byproducts of GMO soy and corn.
The correlation between GMO and illnesses such as diabetes and cancer is beyond reasonable doubt. Bold enough to indicate causation. It gets worse. I think that food industry is in bed with the pharmaceuticals and perhaps these iniquitous powers are the same entity.
The trickery is quite apparent. You get fed food that is not conducive for your upkeep, yet quite addictive and once the natural equilibrium in your continuum of health gets inevitably tilted in the wrong direction, you are automatically subscribed into the pharmaceutical industrial complex to have your health managed for a lifetime.
The fact that we have to solve most of our body’s reaction to noxious chemicals that we eat by taking more chemicals from the pharmaceutical industry is quite troubling.
If you have 99 problems, reading labels, MUST not be one of them.
Ignorance is no excuse for consumption of items not fit for living beings in this age of instant everything. Unfortunately, wisdom is still not instant.
Price and taste should not be the only determinants when buying food. GMO companies should be under the same scrutiny as lead paint manufacturers.
However, the wicked companies (most likely owned by the elite 1%’ers) cannot allow their elephantine pockets to be dented, even if it is to the benefit of the consumers. Benevolence is no longer part of customer service.
I am sure that there are some conscious few people in the world today who know that GMO products are responsible for the ongoing insidious genocidal social engineering.
Lead paint companies had fervent representatives back in the day fighting against the proposal that lead paint had a correlation with mental retardation in kids.
It is quite unfortunate that these detached-from-reality, malfunctioning candidates for POTUS are not talking emphatically about this systemic extermination of ordinary folks by the multibillion, multinational food companies.
Then again, there is a reason why there are lobbyists who contribute to the election of these so called “leaders” whose interests are usually antithetical with uplifting those who vote them in.
Nonetheless, it is imperative for the consumer to teach oneself how to read labels and what to look for on the packaging of food items and beverages. There is a lot of overt deception on these labels. Reduced fat? Multigrain?
If cleanliness is next to godliness, then it should be criminal to consume that which will make you unclean. Remember we are what we eat.
Is the pharmaceutical industrial complex to blame?
Pharmaceutical companies are not in the business of curing diseases any longer. They are in the business of health maintenance -managing illnesses and lifestyles.
If you do not take care of yourself holistically as an entity, someone else will be happy to do it for you, at a price, of course. The worst thing you can do to yourself is being self-negligent and living a sedentary lifestyle.
Barring medical and/or congenital conditions, you should avoid getting fat at all the expenses that you can control.
Obesity is a multibillion, multinational business. In the context of the pharmaceutical industrial complex, being fat means that eventually you’ll likely be a customer for medicines including, but not limited to; anti-cholesterol, anti-diabetics, diuretics, anti-hypertensives, narcotics etc. and if you incur side effects, they have an antidote for that too.
If you neglect your emotional health, you’re inevitably headed for antidepressants and anxiolytics. If you neglect your mental being, you’re undoubtedly headed for misery and I’ll spare you the consequences of ignoring one’s sexual health.
Health management used to be exclusively for old folks and those who were born with illnesses that require lifelong medications. Now you have teenagers on antidepressants, and one has to wonder what they’ve seen to merit such an intervention.
Long gone are the days that scientists in the pharmaceutical industries invented antibiotics to fight and kill bacteria. In fact, antibiotics are considered some of the cheapest medicines worldwide. As such, they are not as profitable as they once were.
Consequently, some companies have limited funding relative to certain microbes and are considering decreasing, if not the cessation of manufacturing antibiotics. This is quite unfortunate, especially for developing nations encumbered with the nuisance of mosquitoes and malaria among several other bacterial diseases.
While we await the cure for cancer and viral illnesses, pharmaceutical companies are busy inventing the next manageable chronic disease that’ll fatten their elephantine pockets.
If you think lawmakers will one day rise and bring forth legislation that will expose and mitigate ‘big pharma’, don’t hold your breath on it. At least 25 key lawmakers of Medicare part D – prescription drug program for seniors currently work as executives and/or lobbyists for the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
The healthcare industry is littered with bureaucratic clutter. When the right people decide to clean up, I hope they start by vacuuming the shenanigans within the pharmaceutical industrial complex.
