Zombie Appocalypse Now
Back in the 50's and 60's my dad worked for Defense Research in Ottawa, Canada. One day he told me he had been working on bio-chemical warfare agents that had the purpose to incapacitate the entire population of Western Europe in the event of a Soviet invasion. Films like Zombie apocalypse might give you an idea of what they were aiming for and it's no coincidence that just such doomsday scenarios have served in a number of military exercises.
Back then I was just a kid. I said I thought Europe were our allies. He explained this was not to kill them, but to maim and make sure they would be a hindrance and a drain on the invading forces.
Dad told me that besides defense research, there wasn't much work for a bio-chemistry scientist, other than in the cosmetics industry, but that didn't interest him at all. He told me he had decided to jack in his job, because making people sick, or killing them, was not the kind of thing he wanted to devote his life to. He did say he was hoping he might find work developing a cure for cancer, as he had some ideas worth pursuing, but didn't know where to get funding.
Most medical research is financed by pharmaceutical industry and while doctors are ostensibly paid by insurance companies and national health service, many receive significant commissions from drug companies when prescribing their products. Regrettably this often results in less than optimal treatments for the patient as well as unnecessary costs for Health Services. Insurance companies OTOH don't give a damn as they simply pass the costs on to their clients. In fact the scare factor of a few gruesome horror stories, actually helps them to sell more policies.
Even worse is when drug companies hold patents for incurable infections like HIV. They can jack up the price, just like they did a few years back (click thumbnail). Thus they hold patients to ransom facing the prospect of debilitating illness and even death without said patented medication.
Allegedly to prevent stigmatization, states like California made it legal to keep ones status secret from partners that could become infected, and even decriminalized knowingly donating infected blood, thus delaying essential treatment and abetting contagion.
Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if the real motive wasn't just to get more consumers dependent on the drugs and some virtue signalling politician's campaign got a nice "sponsorship" from a "philanthropic" phramaceutical business. Apparently this was cheered on by useful idiots of "the gay community"... as if covert spreading of HIV among their demographic would be in their favor somehow... WTF, just who did they think the law was supposed to be protecting?
I have seen little evidence that big pharma don't rival illegal drug cartels in their moral destitution. Some have been sued and obliged to page huge fines and compensation, but those penalties are peanuts compared to their profits. Most actual victims may be too ill, and not have the money to take their case to court.
The entire system from government, to drug companies, medical practitioners and judiciary is utterly corrupt and broken! This is what some euphemistically call "the trickle down economy", because accepting bribes is the only way to get money out of the stinking rich parasites that plague humanity.
Clearly there is a lot of money to be made out of disease, but healthy people too are scared of becoming ill. They wish to take preventative measures. Awareness of unhealthy diet is a question of education, but there is also a huge industry in artificial, over priced and often unnecessary health supplements. For many consumers these have little more effect than a placebo, while some may even result in adverse conditions like overdose.
If you really do want this kind of snake-oil then why not buy it from the Health Ranger or from Alex Jones where your money goes to support Brighteon.com and Info Wars, these are Free speech and uncensored news initiatives and do deserve means of financing themselves other than colluding with profiteering corporate advertizing.
