Years ago, Big Pharma was successful in marketing Ritalin and similar drugs for school children, through the school boards. It’s much easier to convince a handful of people, probably with vacations to some Caribbean resort, then to convince millions of parents that their children should take these terrible drugs.
Then, Big Pharma market their vaccine for girls, Gardasil, against the human Papilloma virus, through schools. Another great success. A case in Texas revealed how they “persuaded” school officials to make that a required vaccine. Read this article if you have teenage girls:
Now In the news: School children will be screened for high cholesterol. This is another marketing ploy by the big pharma. Dr. Blaylock, a neuro-surgeon, and many others have written for years, that the cholesterol scare is a “money grab.”
Cholesterol is necessary for life. Selling statin drugs, which have some very bad side effects doctors never mention, is a huge $20 billion business. Yet, there is no evidence that reducing cholesterol improves your health. Imagine!
The highest concentration of cholesterol is in your brain. Without it, you get dementia. As Dr. Linus Pauling, who did all the ground-breaking research on Vitamin C, wrote years ago (Linus Pauling Institute) the real plaque is mostly Lysil. And that is easily dissolved with an inexpensive amino acid, L-Lysine, not statins. You can buy it at your local drug store, without a prescription.
But L-Lysine is natural, and can’t be patented. There is no big profit for the Pharma industry. Selling prescriptions with significant side effects, such as an irreversible dwindling muscle disease, is much more profitable. (I have done a lot of research on this. I hope no one tells me to stick to the market. Without health, the market won’t help you. My degree is in chemistry.)
Dr. Linus Pauling, the only person to ever win two Nobel Prizes, one for chemistry, says take 2-3 grams of L-Lysine and 2-3 grams of Vitamin C every day. No bad side effects.
That certainly beats the statins, which have severe side effects for some people.
