NOPE 4.02 billion. That’s 13 prescriptions for every man, woman and child living in this drug-struck country.
But that’s skewed too, because a lot of us, including myself, who want to remain healthy and vital, never, ever rely on prescription medication. Apparently, the rest of us are utterly drug-addled as we sleepwalk through our days, alternating between boredom and panic, spending gas, money, and our increasingly vapid life energy trying to get from here to nowhere.
Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.
The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.
Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.
That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.
That’s about one new prescription every month for every American.
The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.
We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the number of pills Americans took. We’re also not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.
Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.
What are the effects of all these drugs?
We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America and other industrialized countries from the inside. Wars, no wars, economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives.
