Get Out Of The Pharmacy Junk Food Cycle
by Marcus Antebi
Article at a Glance:
Big Pharmacy and the processed food industry have had an unspoken alliance with each other for over a century. The foods make people sick and the medicines try to fix them, just enough to keep them eating more junk food. Get off of this corrupt and morbid ride.
The science of pharmaceutical drugs is very corrupt. Scientists are first trying to prove that their medicines are safe and can actually help in the ways that they claim. All the experiments and control groups are skewed in their favor.
I have a problem with the idea of science identifying an emotional problem and then just one week later having a drug to fix it. But there are problems such as chemical depression: When a person with such a condition goes untreated, they, without care, can become very dangerous to themselves. Certainly no one in such a condition should have to suffer.
(In many cases, drugs can be used in tandem with cycle therapy and with re-education. Using such measures a person could improve the quality of their life. But in my experience, a much more noticeable improvement comes when a person is re-educated, does emotional healing work, properly weans himself or herself off of pharmaceutical drugs, and adapts a truly healthy lifestyle.)
But for most people, the more likely scenario is that they’re caught in the pharmacy & junk food loop. It’s total madness and I hope that you can see it. Even if it's not happening to you, you likely will know someone who suffers from being caught in this vicious cycle.
I hope that we can all see that there are industries that are linked to each other, both consciously and unconsciously, that feed each other in a closed loop. These closed loops continue on infinitely. I firmly believe this to be the case with the pharmacy industry and the junk food industry.
The junk processed food industry is responsible for an untold number of diseases, illnesses, suffering individuals, and even deaths. Even though we are voluntarily choosing to consume these junk foods, we are essentially victims. The reason is because people simply do not know better and the intoxicating lure of these types of foods is too compelling. It is too easy for people to become addicted to foods that can alter the mood in an instant.
The processed foods are usually cheaper and they have long shelf lives. We’ve been eating them since we were children. As we grow older, we take medication to counteract the effects of these foods. Then, when we feel better, we go back to eating them. Sadly, this situation is condoned by the medical industry at large. If it wasn't, there would be a massive worldwide protest by doctors.
But it doesn’t work out that way. It's a problem with philosophical and political ramifications. It’s a moral dilemma and we should talk about it. And we should try to create solutions that will take effect over many, many generations.
Diet has an overwhelming impact on our overall health. Human beings, like all creatures, have a specific diet that they were designed for. Our bodies are meant to eat pure foods and to drink clean water. We are meant to live much longer than we expect to, but under the conditions created by junk foods and improperly used pharmaceuticals we usually have shorter lifespans. This is tragic.
But there is hope. That hope is generated when people talk about it, bring other people’s attention to it, and help to make this truth soak into the fabric of our collective consciousness.
Our generation is responsible for ensuring that the next generations don’t grow up with man-made pandemics. It is our generation that will die out believing that there was some order and rationale to the madness of corporate production of toxic foods.
But, if we keep speaking about this, we can create a movement. And as has been the case with other great movements, a seed will be planted, and the seed will blossom into a beautiful fruit.
Retail Pharmacies Lure You to Buy Junk Food
The irony of my local Walgreens and CVS pharmacy is they are supposed to be a health and wellness platform. But while I wait in line to pay for products to improve my health, I see aisle after aisle of garbage and toxic sludge disguised as snack foods. The basement has wall-to-wall drugs, treatments, and modern implements for self care. Dental floss, baby powder, shaving and grooming, first aid, serious over the counter drugs, and many other items.
But the second floor is a retail trap of point of sale items that are outrageously bad for anyone’s health. These foods are so toxic that they should not be legal. They are as toxic as the slower toxins available in vaping products. These stores are the worst of the worst.
These junk food products are destructors and disruptors to the endocrine system. They cause hormonal surges, spikes in blood sugars with rapid crashes, and many other problems.
These are the foods that make us addicted to eating because they provide nothing but calories. They are not nutritious. They do not enhance your chemistry. They disrupt it.
The chemicals that are used to enhance flavor, shelf life, color, texture, and satisfaction for chemically-addicted people will cause disease either slowly or quickly. Their usage is unethical. That the FDA has allowed stores to sell these substances of stores for so long is an indication that we created a system that is in dire need of being upended and changed.
Many will perish as a result of long term exposure to and consumption of these foods. Some will likely die horrible, painful deaths.
Fresh and wholesome foods are less desirable to the mainstream. Freshness is the enemy of profits for a retail vendor. Tragically, junk food items are profitable and they sell before their expiration dates occur.
The unpleasant statements that I’ve just made are true. As consumers, we can help end this madness by voting with our dollars. We can discontinue shopping in places that lure people in and then seduce them to buy cheap garbage to soothe a craving.
A list of some of the most offensive products that are sold at pharmacies and most grocery stores is as follows:
All sodas, all energy drinks, all potato chips, Doritos, cupcakes, cakes, marshmallows, Cheetos, candy, chewing gum with chemically processed sugars, gums with synthetic sugars, mints, chocolate bars, white and whole wheat processed breads, and cereals.
