Feeling down, can’t get it up? Got back pain, a pain in the neck?
Got the sniffles, sore throat, tooth ache?
Don’t worry, just turn on the TV! Supersaturated with uplifting drug commercials of chirping birds and lovers frolicking down the path toward eternal happiness, there’s a pill for every ill.
Ignore the litany of warnings at the end of the commercial of the life-threatening risks associated with the instant cures that cure nothing but have succeed in making the world drug addicted.
It’s a simple formula, the more prescription drugs consumed the less effective they become. There is no better example of this than over-prescribed and over-consumed antibiotics.
The chronic misuse and overuse of antibiotics is a trend long in the making, which I identified and documented in my book Trends 2000, published in 1997.
As Big Pharma developed a wider range of antibiotics and aggressively marketed them as wonder drugs, I forecast 20 years ago that bacteria would become resistant to these new treatments.
Why? Because they were being needlessly prescribed to feed Big Pharma profits.
As I wrote in Trends 2000:
“…worldwide misuse of antibiotics was in the process of destroying their effectiveness on a massive scale. Medical authorities around the world were acknowledging a frightening scenario: The wonder bugs were winning the battle with wonder drugs.”
Today, across the globe, there is growing scientific evidence of the crisis I forecast and described in 1997 as “environmental AIDS.” In 2017, we are squarely in, as it’s know today, the age of “antimicrobial resistance.”
So here we are 20 years later forgetting that the World Health Organization had warned that the misuse of antibiotics was producing drug resistant bacteria fueling the resurgence of cholera, tuberculosis and other diseases.
It made it clear that antibiotics were losing their effectiveness. They warned that once a new drug becomes widely used resistance to would spread throughout the world.
In fact, the WHO now reports that 700,000 people die each year from infections that resist antibiotics. Moreover, studies worldwide are projecting a growing, staggering number of deaths in the decades ahead.
TRENDPOST: Besides a large segment of society looking for natural healing remedies rather than going the prescription drug route, research laboratories are creating a new type of antibiotic that can resist the resistance from bacteria.
With tens of millions of lives at risk from common infections that are resistant to antibiotics and can evolve into more serious medical conditions, these leading edge companies that create drugs to combat the superbug epidemic are positioned for enormous profit potential
