The latest Center for Disease Control (CDC) press release reporting the number of women who have died from prescription drug overdoses from 1999 to 2010 was 48,000. http://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2013/p0702-drug-overdose.html In an age of technology and enlightenment, we have a drug and medical industry marching forward creating and promulgating genocide within North America.
The deliberate marketing, selling and distribution of products that are creating an historic outcome of deaths falls into the definition of genocide. While the definition of genocide is usually reserved for the mass killing of a racial, political or cultural group of people, the drug companies have widened the definition by selling as much lethal product that they possibly can to destroy individuals, families and communities from every demographic on the North American continent.
Fortunately, more reporters around the country are beginning to understand the magnitude of the hoax in the marketing and selling of the legal narcotics. But, how many more addictions and deaths before ALL the journalists begin to understand the epidemic.
We took a step backwards this week. In reporting on the latest CDC numbers, NBC news displayed their lack of understanding. http://www.nbcnews.com/health/opiate-overdose-deaths-skyrocketed-women-cdc-finds-6C10509026
In an article covering the deaths, the reporter took quotes from individuals on the “money train” of the destruction.
An individual from “Harm Reduction” was quoted. Harm Reduction is supported by Drug Policy Alliance which advocates for the legalization and liberalization of more drugs to our streets.
An individual who was a former member of The American Pain Society was quoted. The American Pain Society shut down after the United States Senate began an investigation of the organization for their close ties to Pharma.
An “Addiction Psychiatrist” was quoted. With psychiatry being at the forefront of the business model Pharma has developed to sell more drugs to those dependent and addicted, a psychiatrist is not a credible source to those who understand where psychiatrists are sitting on the money train of addiction.
My local newspaper, The Tampa Bay Times, reiterated the same measured and carefully crafted responses the drug and pain mavens thrive on. http://preps.tampabay.com/news/health/cdc-prescription-drug-deaths-among-women-up-four-fold-in-a-decade/2129688
The old adage, “Knowledge is Power”, has been a slow journey for those who understand the epidemic. Unfortunately, it remains many in the media who are the slow learners.
