I believe ideas implanted into our minds can be very dangerous. All we see in the media are articles about the ill, illness and the efforts we undertake to “cure” illness. We are steeped in illness.
The most immoral use of fear brainwashing was that purposely used by the Anti Tobacco industry and its sidekick, the Drug Industry, to terrify people about smoking, smokers and Second Hand Smoke. They have messed with people’s minds.
I, personally, have a hard time believing anything the Anti Tobacco Industry says, because they have manufactured deaths, and SHS dangers.
They have used nocebo to the detriment of people’s health. Having hammered on about nocebo in Anti Smoking Advertising for many years, and also complaining to the Advertising Board, I was interested to see this article summarised below.
I found these stats from Denmark, and I know hospital admissions have increased in the UK – maybe for the same reasons. It is translated…
Five years of health campaigns, smoking bans, health charges and political patronage lifestyle has not led to more health in Denmark. On the contrary, the Danes have become much more ill.
State many paternalistic approach to change in the Danish “unhealthy lifestyle” is scheduled to have reduced disease and curbed the unbridled hospital expenses. The result is preliminarily said to be a genuine failure. A failure that should give all Danish health politicians red ears:
Since politicians with smoking law in 2007 began to stick his nose in the Danish lifestyle, the number of hospital admissions exploded. It shows the raw figures from Statistics Denmark:
In 2012 reached up to a staggering 1.33 million annual hospital admissions – it was 150,000 more compared to 2006, or 13% more. This is double the rate of increase compared to the corresponding period before the smoking law.
Paradox: non-smoking room led to more smoking-related diseases
Ironically, the number of hospitalizations due to so-called “smoking-related” diseases increased much more than the average of disease hospitalizations. Prior to the smoking law claimed all health experts otherwise, to the smoke-free spaces would reduce these diseases. It was an “evidence-based” truth, it was said.
Today, it is recognized that the opposite has happened, “smoking-related” disease hospitalization rose 20% in the period after smoking law, while the average of diseases “only” grew 13%.
There have also been large increases in the number of hospitalizations due to joint and bone fractures, especially in women – this is because according to many practitioners overloads by excessive exercise cultivation, incited by various motion campaigns and the media council from health experts like. Bente Klarlund.
Furthermore, the number of cardiovascular diseases has been declining for many years, returned to an increase in the period 2006-2012.
The plan to reduce medical expenses by means of patronage has not worked as intended. The “healthy” Denmark is on the contrary been a regular disease factory.
The figures are a total failure of the idea that the state should interfere in people’s lifestyle to prevent disease.
Preventive make healthy people sick – and pharmaceutical companies happy
It goes without saying that “prevention is better than cure”, but obviously not when it comes to other people’s lifestyles, and certainly not when it is done by government intervention in people’s lives.
Many disease prevention projects also has the negative effect that they make healthy people sick . The reason is that health campaigns and disease prevention imbues many citizens fear of getting sick, which in itself leads to disease – through the so-called nocebo effect .
