  • I believe that the pharma problem has now also trickled into medical diagnoses and treatment as well. My mother is just 70 and has always been thin and had low blood pressure. 5 years ago she also stopped smoking. But somewhere along the lines someone put her on “blood pressure medicine”. Next thing, she has COPD and emphazema. She pants all the time like she just ran a race. I kept trying to tell her to get off the bp meds, but she wouldn’t hear of it. She was (and is) convinced that if she didn’t do what the doctor told her to do that her insurance would “drop her”.

    Another example is cholesterol medicines. There weren’t enough people who “needed” them, so they changed the criteria.

    It’s a sick world when we invent things to solve problems before the problems even exist. It’s like snake-oil salesmen.
