The pharmaceutical industry and our health

The pharmaceutical industry has unacceptable power and corruption in the US which greatly affects the health of Americans.

Here are two concerns:

  1. Ban the pharmaceutical industry from paying doctors for prescribing medications. Doctors receive about 50% of their revenues from the pharmaceutical industry. Doctors pay should not be based on the amount of medications prescribed. Liver function suffers with medication and causes chronic inflammation in our bodies.
  2. Ban the pharmaceutical industry from advertising. Allow the medical doctors to prescribe the medications. As one example, the pharmaceutical industry has threatened medical journals to not advertise with them if they publish clinical studies based on natural plant-type remedies. Americans have the right to all information, not just those endorsed by the pharmaceutical industry.
