In reality each pharma pill taken to alleviate a condition can cause exacerbating symptoms that cause lifelong dependency on these products. Thus the health care industry in the U.S. and other western nations are better termed the "sick-care" industry because they rely on long term illnesses with no cure. Overprescribed mental health meds are often used to continue making people into patients while other causative factors such as malnutrition, food allergies and peer/adult abuses are ignored completely. There is no profit to be made from a change in diet or surrounding people, yet putting someone on pharma pills from youth makes a lifelong customer for pharma corps.
Though some inherited diseases may require pharma pills for treatment, the majority of the pharmaceutical corporation's profit margin in the west is from diseases of lifestyle. The three contributing factors are lack of exercise, refined carbs/sugars/grains (or even whole wheat), and grain fed meat consumption (factory farmed). Since it is psychologically difficult to alter the standard American diet (SAD), the illnesses will continue and the pharmaceutical corporations will be there to make a profit, from the cradle to the grave.
Those who try alternative treatments (IV Vitamin C, medical cannabis bud/oil, etc...) and healthy diets (Vegan, keto, etc...) are often outcast in many communities and/or imprisoned in psych wards or jail. The terms "health nut" or "food snob" are often used to degrade individuals who have shown concern by limiting what foods/drinks they are willing to ingest. The theory behind these psychological attacks is that being healthy is "just too difficult" and eventually the healthy eater will give up and "join the crowd" by returning to a diet of junk carbs/sugars and factory farmed meats. Then it is only a matter of time before one of the diet related illnesses begin to show symptoms and you can bet that the pharma pills will be quick to follow.
Thanks to Gwen Olsen and Dr. John Virapen the deceptions of the pharma cartel are coming into light. Certainly there will be more people motivated by their conscience to come forth and reveal the lies of pharma's sick-care industrial complex.
"Gwen Olsen – the Rx Reformer
Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industry working for health care giants including Johnson & Johnson, Syntex Labs, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Abbott Laboratories and Forest Laboratories.
In Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, Gwen Olsen brings together the
knowledge of an “insider” trained to sell doctors on the merits of pills;
the personal experience of having taken psychiatric medications and
seen how they altered her life; and the deep grief of having lost her
niece—following her treatment with psychiatric medications—to suicide.
This book has both an intellectual and emotional punch that readers
will long remember.
Robert Whitaker, Author of “Anatomy of an Epidemic”
Everyone is at risk of a prescription drug tragedy:
Gwen offers an insider’s knowledge of dangers from the pharmaceutical industry.
Her poignant autobiographical journey through the darkness of mental illness and the catastrophic consequences that lurk in medicine cabinets around the country offers an honest glimpse into alarming statistics and a health care system ranked last among nineteen industrialized nations worldwide. As a former sales rep for Pharma, Gwen learned firsthand how an unprecedented number of lethal drugs are unleashed onto an unsuspecting public.
It is easy to disregard prescription drug deaths, medical errors, and
U.S. health care crisis statistics as just numbers. However, they are
not. In a well researched, impeccably documented, finely written
manner Gwen Olsen has given us account of the gripping details
of real people hurt by the failures of modern health care. A former
pharmaceutical representative herself, the information is as credible
as it is compelling. It is vital for those currently taking prescription
medication to read and understand this book.
Dr. Ben Lerner, chiropractor and New York Times best selling author of “Body by God”"
As a mental health activist, Gwen has testified before the Food and Drug Administration’s Psycho-pharmacology committee, as well as many legislative committees, and has led rallies and marches in protest against psychiatric abuse. Gwen’s message is a call to action and a plea for each of us to step up and do our part to help create a medical system that serves all and does harm to none!
When you realize what is being sold to you as a “remedy” you will realize
how you are playing Russian Roulette with yours and your children’s lives.
This book is a MUST read for every American and every parent in the country.

Another whistleblower is Dr. John Virapen, former CEO of Eli Lily;
"Born in British Guyana, Dr. John Virapen went from being a door-to-door conman to a pop star, to a pharmaceutical representative to executive director of one of the largest drug companies in the world. He admits to participating in bribery, false information and deception to help launch and market some of the most popularly prescribed (and most dangerous) drugs. In an effort to exorcise his demons and expose the tactics and dangers of the pharmaceutical industry.
Virapen states the he eventually became the executive director “of one of the largest and most evil companies in the world…Eli Lily and Company.” He further added “I did a lot of bad things…people were dying from taking medication that was legalized because I had bribed the Swedish government.”
He also articulately states:
“What is the pharma industry doing to us? They are the most powerful industry in the world….they sleep in the same bed with governments…they use corruption to get what they want…corruption involves money…they have lots and lots and lots of money and that is how they make their money. They also kill more people than the wars we have in the world. They’re not interested in curing any disease you may have..they’re more interested in making you get diseases.” http://talesfromtheconspiratum.com/2012/03/20/dr-john-rengen-virapen-whistleblower-of-the-psychopathic-pharmaceutical-industry-speaks-out/
