Why Drug Companies Do Not Want To Cure You !

We are familiar with the situation we find ourselves in, with illogical and dangerous opposition to the diet heretics that deny the true faith about the cause of many of today's ailments. It's happened before and truth finally won!

In 1982, two Australian doctors published an academic paper indicating that stomach ulcers were often caused by a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori. You would think the findings would be welcomed with open arms - not by everyone! As the extract below shows.

It took many years, however, before the seemingly simple cause for ulcers was accepted.

Drug companies that make enormous profits derived from the production of antacid tablets to relieve discomfort, were particularly antagonistic to the findings. Companies like GlaxoSmithKline and Astra had an annual income of over $8 billion from the sale of ulcer treatments such as “Tagamet” and “Zantac”. In 95 percent of cases, the symptoms returned within a year.

In a 1998 interview, Marshall explained: “The livelihood of gastroenterologists and many of the drug companies depended on these drugs that were worth billions of dollars, treating millions of people with ulcers.” When the symptoms returned, people were told to try a new drug.

“A pharmaceutical company wants to sell you a drug that you take every day for the rest of your life, a cholesterol drug, a diabetes drug, they are great sellers. If they sell you a drug which cures you, you only need to take it once or for one week. So how can you make it generate as much profit? I wasn’t supported by the big drug companies. There was plenty of money going into ulcer research, but not into these bacteria,” Marshall said."
