The media perpetuates the idea in which a supposed flu season exists for a window of time and people must weather through it each year. Vaccine and drug companies spend millions of dollars creating the misconception that a period of time takes place every year where people become more susceptible to the flu and sickness. These same companies make hundreds of millions of dollars in profits when their tactics lead people to fearfully and anxiously spend money on various pills and injections which carry no guarantee or certainty of sickness prevention. The truth remains that the body will always encounter germs on a second by second basis and many possess the capability to create cold and flu-like symptoms. The key variable in a world full of invisible germs does not come from drugs and pills but in the body’s ability to combat and fight these invaders year round.
Nearly half of all men between forty-five to sixty-nine years old regularly use over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications (NSAIDs). Concern over this staggering statistic amplifies when considering the number of diseases traced to the side-effects of taking NSAIDs. Studies published over the last fifteen years link regular NSAID use to hypertension, gastro-intestinal bleeding, Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart attacks, stroke, hearing loss, kidney disease, and poor wound healing. Regular NSAID use consists of taking these drugs five times or more each week. Studies completed in 2011, 2017, and early 2018 also prove a link between regular NSAID use and lowered sperm counts, low T (testosterone), and erectile dysfunction.
Studies show that today’s children experience more stress and anxiety than institutionalized psychiatric patients had in the 1950s. Stress registers at an all-time high across many age demographics and results in serious health consequences. One of the most troubling outcomes of stress materializes in the number of adults under the influence of anti-depressants and mind-altering anti-psychotic medications. Nearly one in four women over the age of 50 consumes anti-depressants while nearly 15% of the population relies on pharmaceutical antipsychotics. Astronomically high stress levels combine with performance pressures and lofty expectations to produce a growing faction of people near redlined with stress. A young generation of children bears witness to adults and parents needing dangerous pharmaceutical drugs to cope with daily pressures.
