Sugar, The Celebration of Our Addiction to it and the Price We Pay For It.
It’s not hard to see how much you enjoy celebrating your addiction to carbs and sugar. It’s displayed in everything that’s said and done, in all aspects of the food industry. It’s boldly advertised everywhere you go. Soon after following this celebration of addiction that you love to express, comes a parade of drugs that you’ll be taking to treat all of the symptoms that come from succumbing to your addiction. This simple equation displays the need that we have to curb the influence of the grain and pharmaceutical industry on our health.
Failure to control this influence will not only lead more disease and illness but more to greater health costs overall. How are we ever going to learn to live healthily and kick this habit, before it destroys our society? How are we ever going to put an end to diabetes? Or an end to Alzheimer’s disease? Or cancer? Or heart disease? Or arthritis? Or hypertension? Hyperlipidemia? High Cholesterol? I would like to show just how our celebration of addiction to sugar is not only destroying our individual lives, it has the possibility of destroying our entire civilization, if we don’t curb its influence.
I intend to show you how this industry hooks you in the first place, how they keep you hooked so in the future you’re forced to buy into their drug habit. This drug habit involves NSAIDS (aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Aleve), anti-inflammatories, antacids, anti-gas and bloating, (Pepto Bismol, Gaviscon, Alka Seltzer) and we’re just starting with the OCDs. For prescription medicine, we’re looking at all opioids (Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Percocet), which again are addictive. More prescription NSAIDS like Celebrex, Relafen, Relifex, and Gambaran. We know that by the existing opioid abuse epidemic how dangerous these drugs are. Do you think this happened by chance?
Other prescription medicines that you’re doomed to need if you continue your carbohydrate consumption (especially for those who allow ECC to control them), includes but are not limited to statins, vasoactive agents, fibrates, CETP Inhibitors, and niacin, just for starters. Statins are, by far, the far worst of these medications.
After spending 15 years giving care to and for seniors, I have seen the ravages statin drugs have taken on their bodies. They slowly rob their users from their mental faculties, then their muscles, then their lives. What it takes away from its users is in no way replaced by the treatment it offers. They are nothing more than invitations to a need to take more and more drugs. It seems that the drug industry has found ways to make you buy more of their wares.
Cholesterol, your body’s fuel
This industry promotes that high cholesterol has something to do with heart disease, which couldn’t be further from the truth and that high cholesterol is dangerous. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Cholesterol isn’t the problem. Cholesterol is healthy. Your body has to use it to stay alive. Taking cholesterol away from your body only leads to more medication. I can see where this would benefit the drug industry.
