Canadian Health&Care Mall: What Health Experts Don’t Want You to Know?
Did you ever suspect that doctors weren’t telling you everything that they know? Did you wonder that maybe they are withholding some information for personal profit? Some people might call you a conspiracy theorist, but, in reality, you might be on to something.
In this article, we would like to share with you some of the scams and half-truths that medical and pharmaceutical companies are getting away with. Regretfully, the only people that know what’s going on are part of this system themselves.
Brand-name Medications vs. Generic Medications
Unfortunately, the majority of doctors in Canadian health care and the health care other developed countries are much more likely to prescribe brand-name medications rather than tell their clients about generic meds. Buying generic medications online can allow patients to save as much as 80% of the money they would have spent on brand-name drugs.
Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
Even the term Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is a lie. In truth, it is not the prostate that becomes enlarged; it is paraurethral glands (also known as Transition zone). These glands grow throughout men’s life and eventually block the passage of urine through the urethra.
Thankfully, these glands can be removed quite easily (with little to no consequences), and the operation is not too pricey. Regretfully, most people don’t know about it, and the doctors tend to prescribe drugs that “help” to treat this condition. However, it is a lie, since enlarged tissue cannot be removed by taking drugs; it is simply impossible!
Moreover, it is more profitable for doctors to treat the consequences of this disease, rather than to get rid of this problem altogether. The most common complication of benign prostatic hyperplasia is kidney and bladder stones. Doctors would rather have you coming to them each year to remove kidney stones, rather than remove your paraurethral glands and make you forget about the whole ordeal forever.
Each year hundreds of millions of dollars are spent on flu vaccines. It is a huge business, and the media keeps on fueling the mass hysteria. Remember bird flu or swine flu? Well, those things were simple means for pharmaceutical corporations to gain billions of dollars in profit.
In reality, those diseases were simply masterfully ‘marketed’, making people scared and encouraging them to get vaccinated. It was, however, totally redundant. Moreover, regular yearly flu vaccines do very little to stop this disease because there is a whole range of different flu viruses, and there is no telling which one will be the dominant one.
Antiviral Drugs to Treat Flu
Another common scam is the prescription of antiviral medication to treat flu, cold, and cough. It is known within the medical society that antiviral drugs do NOT shorten the length of the disease nor do they prevent complications. Many studies have been done to prove the effectiveness of antiviral drugs against viral respiratory infections, and none were able to provide conclusive results.
Thus, when doctors are prescribing you antiviral drugs to treat your cold, they are either encouraged by the pharmaceutical companies to do so, or they are completely ignorant and should not be doctors in the first place.
The whole notion of ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is very controversial. The United States of America is the only country in the world that has 6 million of its children taking drugs to treat a “disorder” that was simply called “improper behavior” in the past.
The criteria for diagnosing ADHD are simply preposterous! These criteria just describe regular children, and not even “bad” children. Furthermore, studies show that ADHD treatment has no long-term positive effects though it does slow down the child so that he or she would not be a problem to the teacher.
This is probably one of the grandest scams in the history of humankind, and no one can do anything about it. The parents cannot even refuse to put their child on meds because it is compulsory if their child was diagnosed with ADHD.
