The Top 10 Prescribed Pharmaceuticals of 2016 Are a Sign That Food is Killing Us

Our food supply is being compromised and bastardized by corporations who profit handsomely by feeding the American public ever-more processed, modified, and chemical-laden foods. As if this were some kind of revolving door conspiracy, when food makes us sick, we spend more money on healthcare, and a look at the most prescribed medications of 2016 make it clear there is a direct link between poor food and poor health in America.

The 2016 list of the 50 most prescribed medications in America, as reported by Lowest Med, includes among the top ten, nine medications used to address health problems that can be primarily associated with an unhealthy diet.

The list includes the following:

Medications for hypertension, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart problems:

  • Atorvastatin Calcium
  • Lisinopril
  • Amlodipine
  • Simvastatin
  • Metoprolol ER
  • Losartan

Medications for acid reflux and digestion issues:

  • Omeprazole

Medications for diabetes:

  • Metformin

Medications for hyper-thyroid/autoimmune disease:

  • Levothyroxine

This is quite telling, as the health problems represented in this list are largely linked to diet and lifestyle issues. hypertension, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol are linked to diets which result in obesity due to the intake of fatty, salty foods along with poor exercise habits.

Acid reflux is preventable with a proper, non-acidic diet, however, the type of foods that contribute to reflux are quite common in the American diet.

Diabetes has quickly become a major national health issue, and while few institutions will venture to say that diet is the cause, it is widely suspected that diets high in sugar, processed sugar substitutes, and starchy foods will most certainly lead to diabetes, food is driving the rise in this health condition.

What may be considered remarkable in this list is that while one may suspect mental health medications and pain pills to be represented, the top 10 is all about general health issues caused by dietary issues.

There are natural alternatives to many of the leading pharmaceuticals, however, in order to see the benefits of using food and natural supplements as medicine total lifestyle changes, including major changes in how we view and think about overall health are necessary. Unfortunately, many doctors today recommend the pharmaceutical, palliative model of healthcare hoping to give patients instant results by managing symptoms, and too infrequently help people to change their habits and outlook in order to achieve optimal health.

  1. High amounts of SALT in foods is very dangerous. You like salt? Try going without it and then try it again and you will gag. It every bad for you. Restaurants load food with salt. Most everything you buy is high sodium. This will kill you early. Lay off the salt. Cook your foods from scratch. You will feel much better.

  2. Those people hate Upcspine and the Specific Chiropractic and Upper cervical heath centers. They prevent what people give drugs for.

  3. This is just great… I take two of those, but at 77 my time is limited anyway. In a way, I will miss the beautiful world God gave us to trample and destroy, but hopefully won’t have to see the devastation man has caused for humans and Earth. First Vaccines, now many medications if you are not aborted to begin with.

  4. Levothyroxine is for Hypothyroidism, not Hyperthyroidism. It is a synthetic T4 hormone used to replace T4 when someone cannot reproduce it naturally.

  5. From what I have read for the past 8 years of this worthless Black turd’s POS of a
    dictatorship of a token Tar-Baby of a Muslim POTUS, this Black mutt is in cahoots
    with George “NAZI” Soros, the ramrod of the “NEW WORLD ORDER,” in their plot to
    remove at least 2 or more billion inhabitants of planet Earth. Therefore, what better
    secret method, is to poison to a degree, all of our processed foods, to include the
    prescriptions prescribed by our medical staff. In other words, I would not volunteer to
    be injected with any of the new governmental medical concoctions, if otherwise healthy prior. This worthless effn government and NAZI Soros, are not to be trusted, and 99% of the Blacks and Muslims. Once the new administration, under our 45th POTUS maintains the power to get rid of anything that this worthless Black turd from Kenya has devised with his pen and telephone, can be undone, especially getting rid of Obamacare and inserting a better form of health care that the United States once enjoyed by we American citizens, prior to the election/selection of this worthless Black turd from Kenya. I have been waiting patiently for we patriotic American to storm the White House gates to get rid of this worthless Black, Communist, Anarchist, Marxist, Socialist, Criminal, and Muslim turd of a POTUS, or, our fabulous military maintains a coup to finally wipe the slate clean.
