Want to know more about the political influence of the pharmaceutical industry? - Then I suggest you look here. The website states that "The Center for Public Integrity is dedicated to producing original investigative journalism about significant public issues to make institutional power more transparent and accountable."
I am someone who has been greatly harmed by prescribed pharmaceutical drugs and so I am particularly aware of the danger to the public health (and the public purse) of the great and increasing power of the multinationals, especially Big Pharma. I believe that rather than treating illness with pharmaceuticals, we would do better by preventing and/or treating most illness with better nutrition, which is, after all, the natural way, and which does not have the disadvantage of adverse side-effects. A good way to improve your nutrition and to get the most benefit from your food is to lower your salt/sodium intake.
Good nutrition is the best physician and the safest medicine.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver damage and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
