[Warning] This MAJOR Drug Scam Can KILL!
Sometimes it seems like the only ads I see are drug ads.
And I’m darned sick and tired of it.
If you think you’re seeing more drug advertising too, you are not alone.
Independent agencies have reported TV spending for drugs has doubled in the last four years.
Drug companies spent over $6 billion last year on advertising–and there are no signs they are stopping anytime soon.
But all these drug commercials are part of a MAJOR scam that is killing good people like you.
Here’s exactly what you need to do to stay safe.
So why do drug companies advertise in the first place?
Because it works well. Really well!
Drugs companies started out cautious with their advertising. The first ads we saw were drugs for acid reflux or allergies. Now it has gotten serious, with cancer and heart disease drugs being some of the most advertised drugs.
Big Pharma is even advertising meds for all sorts of diseases you’ve never heard of before: Circadian Dysrhythmia, Adult Autism, you name it.
Guess you need a drug for a condition you didn’t know you had.
But here is my problem with drug advertising: drugs equal death.
- The latest numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that 64,070 people died from drug overdoses in 2016.
- The Food and Drug Administration estimates that 1.3 million people are injured by medication errors each year in the U.S.
That is a lot of harm coming from something you see on TV and then “ask your doctor” for.
What can you do?
- Know there are good alternatives to almost every drug out there. Especially for conditions that are long-term and chronic.
- Think twice about getting on a drug. Once you are on a drug, many are hard to get off of.
- Talk to your doctor and pharmacist about all your medications and ask questions about why a medication is being prescribed and how and when it should be taken.
- Develop a system for keeping track of when you take medications.
- And always store all medications up, away, and out of sight of children or grandchildren (accidental poisoning is one of the key reasons for drug deaths).
In my perfect world, there would be no drug advertising–but I’m not holding my breath.
Drug companies paint a picture of a life full of fun and happiness once you stick a pill in your mouth.
Don’t believe them.
Look for good, healthy alternatives that will support your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Health and Happiness,
