Heath Ledger's FDA

Heath Ledger died of accidental overdose "28-year-old actor had oxycodone, anti-anxiety, sleep aids in his system..."

Right again I am. When I first learned of Mr. Ledger's untimely death, I predicted that they would find that he was another statistic of modern medicine -- an FDA approved iatrogenic death...

The media tried to spin it as another Hollywood celebrity done in by street drugs. Unfortunately for Pfizer, Merck, GSK and others, the truth is out there and it's a toxic drug brought to you by a partnership between FDA and BIG PHARMA. The question is, where did he learn to take them?

"Among the drugs found in his body were oxycodone, a painkiller sold as OxyContin and used in other pain relievers such as Percodan and Percocet. Others included drugs sold as anti-anxiety pills Valium and Xanax, which are sedatives."

Kids today (and for few generations prior) come to look at government approved drugs as the norm for ANY symptom, no matter how natural. "Mixed messages" would be an understatement. On the one hand, you have signs that say "Drug-free School Zones" while half the kids are hopped up on Ritalin, Decongestants, Antibiotics, Antihistamines, steroid-inhalants, NSAIDS and more.

It's amazing that more kids do not fall prey to the corner drug dealer at CVS and Walgreen's. Actually, even if they do not have a prescription, you can find them snorting Sudafed, or its street derived Crystal meth. When you look at all the injury and death due to the approved variety, the criminalized ones look saintly by comparison.

How confusing it must be to be a kid today told not to take drugs while mommy and daddy pop a pill for everything life throws at them. Even worse, if parents do not throw enough drugs and vaccines at their children, then the state can come in and force them on children whose only crime may have been a sniffle in the United States of Drugmerica. Heath Ledger is merely a byproduct of the drug culture that went legitimate once it got the government stamp of approval.

Which clause is it in the Constitution which permits government to grant a monopoly to drug makers while denying equal access to alternative forms of treatment not from the demon-spawn of I.G. Farben? It is not OK for you to wait for approval from Hillary Clinton before you remove yourself and your kids from the pharmaceutical teat.

So true. Every medication that I'm on seems to require a lecture from my pharmacist.
