"Just Say No to Drugs" and our "War On Drugs" – good but misdirected policies.
Nancy Reagan was right. President Nixon was correct in beginning his “War On Drugs”. Unfortunately they were focusing on the wrong drugs. The real health problem in this country is the use of overly promoted drugs legally prescribed by Western doctors. The influence of the giant pharmaceutical companies on our medical system is a crime and must be stopped AND punished. The pharmaceutical industry kills more Americans every year than terrorists. So what happened to our “War On Drugs”? The small percentage of politicians and doctors who know the truth are afraid to confront the powerful pharmaceuticals. They would lose all that money the drug companies throw around. The remaining doctors and politicos have no idea of the truth about the drug companies and are just greedy. Politicians and pharmaceuticals make up an enormously strong alliance that must be confronted now. That begs the question, who is left to fight the “War On Drugs”? Only the individual. Become informed about your health. Become involved in your health. Find out what the true “side effects” of all the drugs you are taking. (A doctor once said “There are no side effects, only effects.”) Find alternatives to the drugs you are consuming. Change you diet, change your life style and exercise. You CAN reduce your drug intake. Educate your representatives in Congress. Ask them how much money they receive from drug companies. What is the FDA and other governmental bodies doing to protect your health? It has been said, in the end, it is your responsibility to protect your health. Who do you trust with your life?
