Want to be a drug addict? If you live in the U.S. chances are you probably already are. The U.S. - land of the free, of MTV, and of legal drugs. This might just be what makes America great. A place where our doctors prescribe us pills we don’t need for conditions that don’t exist. It’s a win-win. Big Pharma gets bigger and richer and we get higher or just die. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Music: FloFilz - Tilezeit The story was different 50 years ago when Jon went down to his dentist’s office to get his wisdom teeth pulled and the doctor gave him aspirin as pain medication. This was a time when young men went to war and women worked their asses off at home to save the country from collapse. Now? We get high, play video games, watch YouTube, and complain when someone doesn’t call us the right gender. And these days if old Jonny boy goes to the dentist and wants some work done it’s dealers choice. Vicodin. Percocet. Codeine. You name it. Whatever company happens to be in bed with your doctor that day. And if you don’t have private insurance that pays for your drugs? No problem. Sign up for Medicaid. You’ll definitely be able to get free drugs through them. First what exactly is the pharmaceutical industry? To make a long story short it’s a business that creates drugs for use as medications. It’s important to note that it’s not a terrible industry. In fact they have made some very important discoveries like insulin which has saved millions of lives or the countless vaccines that have protected us from at one point, very common diseases like measles and hepatitis. The problem is not the idea of pharmaceuticals – drugs are neither good nor bad. They can either be helpful or dangerous depending on their use. The problem with big pharma is that it is literally killing people. And it’s making a profit doing so. And our government is basically encouraging it. You may ask yourself how an industry that it supposed to be providing us medication which is regulated by the Federal Drug Administration – an organization responsible for “protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human…drugs,” is killing us. Let’s first look at the health statistics: • 99% of hydrocodone worldwide use is in the U.S – we know this drug more colloquially as Vicodin (which is just a company that makes hydrocodone). This is a drug that the FDA rates as less dangerous as marijuana but in 2011 caused nearly 100,000 emergency department visits. • The U.S. makes up 5% of the world’s population but consumes 80% of its opioid consumption • On average 40 deaths per day are linked to specifically prescription opioids and over 100,000 deaths per year linked with prescription drugs in general. This is far more deaths than what illegal street drugs cause. • Prescription drugs are now the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S. Ok. You get the point. Prescription drugs are dangerous and they are killing people. But now the question is why are people taking them if they’re so dangerous? The answer lies in the incredible reach of big Pharma. The pharmaceutical industry spends between 30 and 60 billion dollars a year on advertising their miracle drugs. You’ve all seen their ads – blue skies, beautiful couple, trees – having trouble sleeping? Bad knees? Buy our pill and feel like new. And then the 10 second list of possible side effects which always include “and in extreme cases, death.” The folks that regulate these advertisements have a budget of $9 million dollars. Do you really think a $9 million dollar budget is enough to regulate something that is more than 6,000 times that size. This is not a David vs. Goliath story. This is an ant vs. an elephant. Big pharma is also notorious for selling drugs that aren’t approved for certain symptoms – a practice called Off-Label Promotion. For example your doctor might prescribe you an antidepressant because she or he believes it will help your migraines. This practice is at times is legal and at others illegal. If illegal you will learn shortly that the fine usually is smaller than the profit these companies make. Big pharma might just consider it another tax of doing business. And yes it has in some cases caused death. There is also the idea that big Pharma creates new illnesses and solves them with their pills. Sounds like a conspiracy theory, right? But actually it makes a lot of sense and you’ve probably seen an ad that talks about some made up illness and a pill to fix it without thinking twice. For example restless leg syndrome. Is that really an illness?

YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. WASHINGTON (CBS NEWS) -- Most women with low sexual desire won't rush to get the first prescription drug to boost female libido when it becomes available on Saturday. But they may have more options down the road. Addyi is a daily medication that can't be taken with alcohol or certain other drugs, which will likely limit its use. But experts believe those restrictions could spur development of better treatments for women's sexual problems after more than a decade of neglect by most of the world's large drugmakers. Kim Wallen, a psychology professor at Emory University, says Addyi represents a historic milestone that may open the door to more drugs targeting desire in men and women. Where Viagra and other men's erectile dysfunction drugs work by increasing blood flow to the genitals, Addyi acts on brain chemicals associated with desire. "This is the first time that a drug, for either men or women, has been approved strictly to increase sexual desire," Wallen says. "That legitimizes many other drugs that are in development." Treatments for women's libido issues are an untapped financial opportunity for drugmakers. Analysts estimate the market could be worth over billion, based on academic estimates that between 5 million and 9 million U.S. women may suffer from desire disorders. But the area hasn't been a research priority for drugmakers in many years. Beginning in the 1990s, Pfizer, Bayer and Procter Gamble all studied - then discarded - drugs targeting female libido. Addyi itself was developed by the German conglomerate, Boehringer Ingelheim, then sold to Sprout Pharmaceuticals after the Food and Drug Administration rejected the medication due to lackluster effectiveness and issues like nausea, fatigue and dizziness. It took Sprout four years to win FDA approval for Addyi, which was finally granted in August, on the third try. "They really struggled with this, even agonized over the decision," said CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook. "Because they said the benefits were kind of modest and there were some significant side effects they were worried about: dizziness, sleepiness, and when used with alcohol, fainting." The drug, which acts on brain chemicals associated with mood and appetite, will come with a bold warning label about the risks of fainting if combined with alcohol or certain medications. Additionally, doctors and pharmacists must complete an online certification process to show they understand the drug's risks. Dr. Lisa Dabney says several patients have asked her about Addyi, but they generally lose interest after she explains they cannot drink alcohol while taking the daily medication. "It's definitely an option that's going to help patients," says Dabney, of New York's Mt. Sinai hospital. "But it's going to have a limited patient audience because of the alcohol restrictions and the fact that you have to take it every day." Still, some women credit the drug with saving their relationships. Amanda Parrish, 52, had been married for three years when she realized she was avoiding sex with her husband. Her doctor said it was natural to lose sexual interest with age and suggested she try a vibrator. But nothing worked until Parrish enrolled in a trial of Addyi, which was studied in women who report distress due to a lack of libido. "It just brought me back to where I was as far as being flirty and playful," says Parrish, who lives in Nashville. "I went back to the days of leaving notes on his window, in his car, on his mirror in the morning." Sheri Mike, a 34-year-old mother of two, told CBS News she hopes it will make a difference for her. "I've tried vitamins, me and my husband have tried counseling, I've tried hypnotherapy, but none of those have worked," she said."The lack of desire, the lack of sexual thoughts, no libido -- it's just this one area that's kind of holding us back from being truly happy." Experts generally describe Addyi's effect as "modest." In company studies, women taking the drug that's also called flibanserin reported a slight uptick in sexually satisfying events each month. Their answers to separate questionnaires indicated they experienced a slight increase in desire and a slight decrease in stress. Analysts from Evercore ISI estimate Addyi could generate sales of 00 million annually. That's far below the blockbuster numbers once discussed by experts and the billion that Valeant Pharmaceuticals recently agreed to purchase Sprout. But the buyout has revived interest in a handful of competitors developing alternate treatments. Those products include nasal sprays, injections and antidepressant pills. It could be years before any of them reach patients. That's because the field of women's sexual medicine remains a small one, comprised of tiny companies with limited resources. Leading the field is Cranbury, N.J.-based Palatin Technologies Inc. which is studying an injectable

Story highlightsMost of the adulterated products were marketed for sexual enhancement, analysis findsThe supplements could harm the health of those who take them, authors said (CNN)Nearly 800 dietary supplements sold over the counter from 2007 through 2016 contained unapproved drug ingredients, a new analysis of US Food and Drug Administration data found. More than one unapproved pharmaceutical ingredient was found in 20% of those supplements, the study published Friday in JAMA Network Open showed.The presence of prescription medicines, often at unknown concentrations, means these supplements are essentially "unapproved drugs," which could be harmful to the health of those who take them, according to the study authors.Enthusiasm over vitamins often outpaces evidence, experts say"These products have the potential to cause severe adverse health effects owing to accidental misuse, overuse, or interaction with other medications, underlying health conditions, or other drugs within the same dietary supplement," wrote the authors, led by Madhur Kumar of the California Department of Public Health Food and Drug Branch.More than 50% of adults use dietary supplements, a $35 billion industry, notes the study. Kumar and his co-authors reviewed the FDA's Tainted Products Marketed as Dietary Supplements_CDER database for 2007 through 2016. The database is maintained on the agency's website as a resource for consumers and to increase transparency and public knowledge. The researchers performed the new analysis independent of the FDA.Bodybuilding drugs sold online often contain unapproved substances, study saysRead MoreThe greatest number of products found to contain hidden ingredients were reported in 2009 when two large recalls together named 99 products. Otherwise, 443 of the total 776 products were reported from 2012 to 2016. In the overwhelming majority of cases (97%) the unapproved pharmaceutical ingredients were not declared on the label of the supplements.Most of the adulterated products, about 45%, were marketed for sexual enhancement, weight loss (about 41%) or muscle building (12%). Drugs found in sexual enhancement products included sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil, all active ingredients in prescription medications intended for erectile dysfunction, which, when overused, can cause serious damage to the blood vessels. His vision changed after he took an erectile dysfunction drugThe most common pharmaceutical ingredients detected in adulterated weight loss products were sibutramine, which was removed from the US market in 2010 due to cardiovascular risks, and the laxative phenolphthalein. Many of the adulterated muscle building products contained undeclared anabolic steroids, which, when abused, can lead to mental problems in the short term and kidney problems, liver damage and heart problems in the long term. Other drugs found in the adulterated supplements include antidepressants and antihistamines, both of which may cause side effects and inter
