It’s no secret that the supplement industry is chock full of scams and deceptions, leading people to believe that taking vitamin C, whey protein and magnesium will somehow offer benefits to their health. Not only that, but many supplement companies are scamming their customers by spiking their pills and powders with fillers, which as the media points out, discredits the entire concept of vitamins, not just the companies that do this. And while these companies continue to scam their customers by making bold, non-FDA-approved claims like “vitamin D may reduce cancer risk” and “bone broth may promote joint health”, they are also demonizing real, accredited remedies for disease such as low fat diets, mercury fillings, antidepressants and statins.
Vitamin companies deceive their customers into thinking that their class of products is the only one that can help people, and that pharmaceuticals have “side effects”. And although many of these claims about pharmaceuticals are admitted in the fine print, they’re in the fine print for a reason – they’re not important. Doctors liberally prescribe many of these drugs, and even give many them like adderall to children, while calmly reading out the side effects after handing out the prescription in a rushed tone that suggests that these warnings are merely an inconvenient legality. When faced with claims that pharmaceuticals damage the liver, doctors laugh and claim that this is nonsense, and then go on to explain that pharmaceuticals are not harmful because they are filtered out by the liver. Just like alcohol is not really damaging to the liver, because it is filtered out by the liver.
Conspiracy theorists are now claiming that cholesterol is an important precursor to many hormones like testosterone, and that statins are ineffective at preventing heart disease, even though most top doctors and dietitians still recommend statins and low fat diets as the best ways to prevent heart disease. They also claim that just because major antidepressants like prozac can cause aggression and remove inhibitions, that they somehow may be implicated in school shootings. This claim has been thoroughly debunked by accredited media companies, who are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies that sell these drugs, and therefore know what they’re talking about.
The FDA keeps us safe by deciding what is accredited and what isn’t. The FDA refuses to approve ludicrous claims about the benefits of vitamins and minerals, which have been thoroughly debunked by medical researchers. If something is FDA-approved you can bet it’s safe and effective, like this Similac baby formula, consisting of 42% corn syrup:
The truth is that unlike pharmaceuticals, which are designed by benevolent scientists at philanthropic organizations like GlaxoSmithKline, dietary supplements are made by powerful greedy companies who want to squeeze every last dollar out of you. Don’t be fooled by the supplement industry, and continue taking the range of pharmaceuticals prescribed by your doctor. Everybody should be taking at least five pharmaceuticals on a daily basis for good measure, not just unhealthy people. If your children are rowdy, overactive and misbehaved, make sure you take them to the doctor immediately to find out which drugs they should be on, so that they can calmly comply with the rules of government schools run by charismatic, inspiring teachers like normal children.
It’s time to dispel the myth once and for all that human health somehow has a dietary component, and that nutrients can be consumed in pill and powder form. If this was the case, then documentaries about the supplement industry would mention it. It’s also time to dispel the concerns about perfectly safe and effective pharmaceuticals, which are proven to work time and time again. All in all, it’s time to listen to the FDA, the authority on all things health-related, instead of getting our health advice from from greedy companies, conspiracy theorists and scam artists.
