This post might skirt the edges of the political world . . . But, I feel very passionate about this topic . . . And the topic is, the over-medication of the population in Western society . . . Now I understand that many people legitimately need medication for this and that, some of it very serious . . . Some of us are only alive because of medication . . . That isn't my concern . . . My concern is the medication given under dubious circumstances, or less serious circumstances, to people who really don't need it . . . Case in point, the huge number of people who are being treated with anti-depressants . . . Do some require this medication? Definitely yes . . . Do ALL who take it require this medication? I'll leave that one open to each individual . . . But that's just one example . . . Drug companies have their place, and God love them . . . But they're not in business to help people . . . They're in business to make as much money as possible, and it just so happens they do it by making drugs . . . Is that too cynical? You decide . . .
Another side to this is how we make ourselves sick through lifestyle, then the pharmaceutical industry and its products kick in to treat the symptoms, not the cause . . . WE are often the cause of our own demise, and the big pharma companies are only too happy to make more money because of our own flawed habits . . . Is THAT too cynical? Again, you decide . . .
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
