The FDA: Friend or Foe?

Got Zantac? Get rid of it.

Here’s a story that didn’t get the attention it deserves. Here’s the latest:

“The US Food and Drug Administration said earlier this month that it has learned that some ranitidine — acid-reducing and heartburn medicines, including those known by the brand name Zantac — contain low levels of an impurity that could cause cancer.”

They are insulting my intelligence. First off, I already know that MANY of the products APPROVED by the FDA are BANNED in many countries around the world.

What do they know that the FDA doesn’t?

Second, how many people have become worse off because they are taking products “approved” by the FDA?

How many people have gotten cancer and DIED because they took products that the FDA deemed safe?

There’s a pattern: the FDA always approves a product, then sometime in the future, comes back and says “oops! this product MIGHT be harmful to humans.”

Reach For a Lucky 

It’s not just drugs  that were considered safe. Once upon a time, cigarettes were once considered a viable way to stay slim and lose weight.

It wasn’t until years later that it was discovered that cigarettes and nicotine were dangerous. Unfortunately, by the time the public was made aware, the damage had been done. Millions of people were either addicted to smoking, or had fallen victim to a variety of health issues, including cancer and death.

This is just an example of a product that people thought was safe, but really wasn’t.

User Beware

The moral of the story  is to keep your exposure to man-made drugs (and products) to a MINIMUM. You do NOT know what’s in that stuff and if it’s doing more harm than good. Maintain a healthy diet and seek natural remedies for your ailments.

A great way to keep the immune system strong is by consuming a variety of spices. Here is a great video on a few popular spices and their amazing health benefits:

The key to good health is to keep the immune system strong. Don’t wait until you’re sick to start taking better care of yourself.

Sickness is BIG BUSINESS. Think of the sheer number of people working in the healthcare industry, including doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, etc.  Then there are those who work in the hospitals, such as the janitors, security guards, the companies that make the beds, gurneys, and other jobs created.

In other words, you being sick is a source of income for many people, and shareholders of drug and pharmaceutical companies stand to profit off your misfortune as well.

Before you take that pill, look at the potential side effects and how it could affect you. Your body just might thank you.

In order to achieve good health, we must be proactive, and learn everything we can about good health.
