All Drugged Up

I was flipping through radio channels yesterday and caught a few minutes a show that talked about drug use in the US. I have no idea what channel it was or who the speaker was but I did agree with the message. If you have high blood pressure or high cholestoral or any other condition taking a pill won't make you healthy.

I know about genetic predispositions. Those genetic predispositions developed because of certain conditions in our former life styles. We were very active and food was scarce, so some peoples bodies developed strategies to cope with less food, they create more cholestoral or triglycerides in the presence of fats and sugars. This was a natural adaptation that we are trying to mitigate by taking drugs. 

Instead of taking drugs we should watch what we eat and get more exercise. If you have a tendency in the family for diabetes stay away from sugar and HFC. I was at the supermarket today. It isn't easy to stay away from HFC but if you make things from scratch you'll be so much healthier.

50% of Americans take prescription pills on a regular basis. That can't be a good thing.
