Michael Jackson, dead at age 50. Probable cause of death: medicine. Celebrities in the US are being killed faster by prescription drugs than their sometimes wild lifestyles. The list of major celebrities killed by medical drugs just in the last year: Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger and Anna Nicole Smith. Michael Jackson is the most notable celebrity to be killed recently by prescribed medication.
Taking Drugs Can Kill
Michael Jackson was taking pain killers and possibly other benzodiazepine drugs. Both drugs produce physical and mental depression. Drugs produce damaging effects.
The proper question to ask oneself before taking or accepting any drug for any situation is “How much damage am I willing to live or die with to get the desired effects I’m looking for?” Remember that those effects build on top of the earlier drug effect and creates a worsening condition, even if you can’t immediately perceive it.
Each individual will react differently to drugs. There is no such thing as a drug that follows natural laws, like gravity or adhesion. Every drug, even over the counter drugs like Aspirin or Tylenol, kill more people every year than the Flu.
Who’s Making A Killing From Drug Sales
Who benefits by keeping people ignorant of drug damage and effects? The people and companies who produce, market, sell and make a living from drug sales.
Many people in the industry of selling drugs want to help others be healthier and happier. Few want people to suffer or experience loss. But why are people not better informed about drug effects before they begin to take them?
Doctors are told patients wouldn’t take drugs if all the bad effects were also made known to them. Therefore Doctors fail to keep their Hippocratic Oath. One part of that oath is to warn and give full disclosure to patients about the effects of drug treatment.
Drug sales are fueled by effective popular marketing to the general population and Medical Doctors, Medical students and to Governmental agencies like the FDA or Health Canada on this side of the boarder.
Currently pharmaceutical sales reps, called ‘Drug Detailers’ are relied upon to inform doctors and government about the benefits and harms of drug therapy. Most Drug Detailers are hired for their looks, communications and salesmanship of pharmaceuticals.
Get Full Disclosure Of All Drug Effects From Your Doctor Or Pharmacist
Where does this leave you, the consumer? A victim of drugs or innocent bystander of the damage created by ignorance. Doctors have a duty to their patients. Doctors should fully inform their patients of all drug effects before recommending drug use.
Getting an alternative recommendation by either an integrative doctor or alternative medicine doctor, can prevent you from continuing to suffering from your doctor’s ignorance.
