Petrochemicals and Big Pharma
*Warning This article may be disturbing to some readers.
However, there is a happy ending!
Now, before we dive into the creation of Big Pharma let's first understand petrochemicals.
What are Petrochemicals?
Petrochemicals (also known as petroleum distillates) are the chemical products obtained from petroleum by refining. Some chemical compounds made from petroleum are also obtained from other fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas, or renewable sources such as maize, palm fruit, or sugar cane.
Petrochemicals are used to manufacture thousands of different products that people use daily, including plastics, medicines, cosmetics, furniture, appliances, electronics, solar power panels, and wind turbines.
That's right, the chemicals we are putting into and onto our bodies are also used to create a wide variety of household products.
Let's journey back to the year 1900. One of the largest companies globally was a company called Standard Oil. Which was a monopoly controlled by John D Rockefeller.
In 1900 petrochemicals were ‘discovered’. This new ‘discovery’ now meant that petroleum could be used to make products ranging from rubber to prescription medications. This also opened up an arena for patents where overwhelming profits could be earned based on the control of this new monopoly. A patent is a legal monopoly for the term of the patent.
Unlike natural remedies that could not be effectively patented (how do you patent a plant or a naturally occurring natural resource?), petrochemicals offered an ability to further the massive profits of the petroleum industry.
The next step was to create a need for these newfound products in medicine.
Taking Control: Two Forces Combine - Step 1
Rockefeller, having earned his fortune in Oil (among other things), united with Andrew Carnegie who created his fortune in the steel industry. Both of these individuals had tarnished reputations because of the ruthless and monopolistic practices they used to gain their wealth. To combat these negative impressions, they used ‘donations’ to well-chosen organizations to create a better public image (PR 101). Unfortunately, many of these organizations are the very organization’s people have come to trust today (more on this in a separate article).
Together they engaged an educator who had previously written a critique for universities. Abraham Flexner was chosen and commissioned to visit every medical school in the United States and provide a report. Abraham Flexner spent a year visiting these institutions and penned the Flexner Report. It provided a very effective tool for their next steps.
The Flexner report was extremely damaging to these prestigious schools and was used to instill fear among the American people in regard to an inept medical system.
(There was a sinister plan behind this.)
Taking Control: Take Over the System - Step 2
Rockefeller, who had his General Education Board, was now able to execute the second step in his plan. Implement national standards for universities and their graduates.
By controlling the medical education system, Rockefeller was now able to dictate the methods of healthcare provided to the public, and slip these new petrochemical (pharmaceutical) drug formulas into mainstream usage.
Doctors who stood their ground against this, by providing safe, natural, historic herbal remedies were a threat and were quickly stripped of their medical licenses and in many cases were jailed. Any and all institutions that failed to comply with the new “standards” were also shut down.
(Interesting how we are seeing this happen at record pace again today - See Article Freedom to Choose Health)
Those educational facilities that got on board with the new system were offered grants. These grants were to research what worked in herbal remedies and duplicate this into a synthetic form. Why? As we stated above in this article, plants and herbal remedies were unable to receive a patent. Whereas a synthetic drug could be patented and sold for enormous profits.
Let’s also point out that the foundation of synthetic pharmaceutical medicine once again built upon the importance of natural medicines that had proven successful for thousands of years. This transition to synthetic medicines is like science stepping in and trying to play the role of the creator, and it led to a focus on profit over the care of the person.
Natural herbs and remedies were chased out of the medical system so that people could take a “pill” to potentially solve their health care problems. Let's also point out that natural remedies were low in cost and provided little or zero side effects. The simple drive behind this was all for-profit and control of the health care industry by the pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Taking Control: Soaring Profits - Step 3
In 2018, Big Pharma had grown to a 482 billion-dollar industry in the United States alone. American citizens also pay on average four times more for prescription medications than other comparable countries. Unless we stand up and say no to these synthetic medications, big pharma will continue to dictate the course of action on our health and that of our family members.
When was the last time you heard someone say “My prescription medication healed me?” Rather, you normally hear that “My Doctor changed my prescription, or added more prescriptions on top of the ones I am taking.”
It's time to take control of your body and regain your sovereignty from Big Pharma.
There is hope!
In 2016 the global natural health supplement market was valued at nearly US $37 Billion with a targeted pace to reach the US $70 Billion by 2024, as people continue to reach for natural products based on research, lifestyle, and an awakening to the negative impacts of big pharma's control. The natural health products and organic foods markets are growing at a record pace. More people are seeing naturopathic and homeopathic medical professionals as compared to anytime in history. People are getting sick and tired of being sick and tired and realizing that the petrochemical-based foods, medicines, and cleaners are having a negative impact on their families. (Just read the labels of these products and the side effects of the petrochemical synthetic medications).
If we all believe that our bodies are created by intelligent design, we fully understand that our environment was also created with intelligent design to properly heal and nourish these miracles of creation we call the human body. Our bodies by intelligent design were not constructed to process chemicals and these foreign substances that have been marketed to us in the spirit of “convenience” for all these years.
