It takes a lot to get me going but I was really cross with the BBC when I saw this article denigrating homeopathy.
Just recently there have been several attempts to poor scorn on alternative therapies and I feel strongly that the government and pharmaceutical companies are doing their best to scare everyone into taking their toxic vaccine this Autumn. After all, there must be thousands of doses left over from the ‘pandemic that never was’ last year and, despite the fact that they are probably past their sell by date (or else laced with who knows what as a preservative) it’s in the interest of profit to use them up: never mind the risk to people’s health.
And on the subject taking risks, why don’t we hear from the media about the new meningitis B vaccine for babies that they want to introduce ‘very quickly’ saying that THERE IS NO NEED FOR LONG TERM TESTING BECAUSE THE ADVANTAGES OUTWEIGH THE DISADVANTAGES!
If they accept there are disadvantages then people have a right to be told about them, don’t you think?
Then there are drugs like Amlopidine for high blood pressure which are actually calcium blockers – but are people warned about this? A friend of mine has been taking it for 12 years and is now suffering from osteoporosis which has certainly not been helped – and has probably been made worse – by this medication. Can she sue the drug company? Of course not: but they can issue statements about the lack of scientific proof that alternative therapies such as homeopathy actually work while they themselves take shortcuts with their own research into new drugs and even hide or distort the truth – anything to get their products licensed and making a profit.
I’m convinced that Big Pharma is actually getting worried about the success of safer and inexpensive natural treatments purely from the point of view of lost profits because they don’t seem to care about people’s health.
There is evidence that drugs cause side effects which can sometimes be serious. Then you have to take more drugs to deal with the side effects and so it goes on.
They are waging war on alternative medicine but their arguments are based on a ‘lack of scientific evidence’ that they work. Isn’t it time that someone put forward the arguments against certain drugs which have been scientifically proven to do positive harm?
