Slowly but surely…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

I think the title of this could very easily be misconstrued, it might have been thought of as referring to me getting better slowly but surely but I’m not referring to that, no this is about the western world or the US and UK slowly but surely getting sicker and sicker.

This isn’t our own fault per se, no it’s all down to the love of money. I imagine lots of readers turning off now and feeling insulted by that. Well the love of money and no concern for the consequences is aimed at two organisations really and not you.

Who are the then?

 

Firstly it’s the behemoth known collectively as big pharma.. and secondly it’s the advertising or media companies.

 

Big pharma have no intention whatsoever of finding a cure for any disease or illness because that would simply be madness, why cure a disease when they can and do make billions, yes billions from a drug that treats a symptom. Then they do the same for a different symptom, so illness and diseases are cash cows to them.

 

They spend millions on advertising, so the companies with no conscience or thoughts for mankind are putting together very clever ads on TV and radio that tug on the heartstrings of good people who believe the compelling arguments.

 

Look back in time, do some basic research on what was considered the worst disease of it’s time, Polio.The research done by Jonas Salk changed everything.

Until 1957, when the Salk vaccine was introduced, polio was considered the most frightening public health problem of the post-war United States. Annual epidemics were increasingly devastating. The 1952 epidemic was the worst outbreak in the nation’s history. Of nearly 58,000 cases reported that year, 3,145 people died and 21,269 were left with mild to disabling paralysis,[1] with most of its victims being children.

He and his team where very limited in comparison to the resources available today but in only seven years the research done by Jonas Salk changed everything.

 

Taken from Wikipedia:

In 1947, Salk accepted an appointment to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. In 1948, he undertook a project funded by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis to determine the number of different types of polio virus. Salk saw an opportunity to extend this project towards developing a vaccine against polio, and, together with the skilled research team he assembled, devoted himself to this work for the next seven years. The field trial set up to test the Salk vaccine was, according to O’Neill, “the most elaborate program of its kind in history, involving 20,000 physicians and public health officers, 64,000 school personnel, and 220,000 volunteers.” Over 1,800,000 school children took part in the trial.[4] When news of the vaccine’s success was made public on April 12, 1955, Salk was hailed as a “miracle worker,” and the day “almost became a national holiday.” His sole focus had been to develop a safe and effective vaccine as rapidly as possible, with no interest in personal profit. When he was asked in a televised interview who owned the patent to the vaccine, Salk replied: “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?

 

Now sadly sickness is big business and until mankind recognises how the pharmaceutical giants are slowly but surely killing people they will continue on their merry way..
