Half of British women are on prescription drugs?! Not even I thought that so many British adults were stuffing so many of them down their throats:
The comprehensive Health Survey for England, which provides a snapshot of the nation’s health, shows 50% of women and 43% of men took at least one medicine in the last week.
This doesn’t include contraceptives or drugs to help against smoking.
Cholesterol-lowering statins, pain relief and anti-depressants were among the most common, with an average of 2.7 million items dispensed every day in the UK.
2.7 million every day! What an earner this is for Big Pharma, which rakes in £15billion a year from the scam, which is more than 15 per cent of the NHS budget. Look around you. Look at the women around you and think of all the women you know: do you think half of them “need” pills to sort out their heads and hearts and blood vessels? Likewise almost a half of men? Of course they don’t, but quacks and patients alike do love a quick solution, even if none is required, and the drug firms are more than happy to oblige. Especially with billions to be grabbed.
What a country: half the people out there are sitting on their arses, watching celeb-TV, stuffing microwaved pizza down their gobs, arteries hardening, depressed that they’re not beautiful celebs, and popping pills to make themselves feel better.
