I’m NOT taking the pills!

I think modern western medicine is fantastic for putting things to gether that are dropping off, broken, blocked, faulty etc. But, for lifestyle problems, age problems, “conditions” – I am NOT taking their pills! Pills kill.

Beware of the Risks & Costs of Prescription Drugs

“…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and Europe.

“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more [6.6 million per year] hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year] medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others.

“Deaths from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.”

Will the pills for diabetes CURE diabetes? No, but the side effects will need more pills to treat the side effects, that will need more pills to treat the side effects of the pills that treat the side effects of each kind of pill prescribed. Not having that. NO!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
