  1. WHYNNARE WE LETTING ALL THE ELDERLY SUFFER THE SIDE AFFETCS OF PHARMACY MEDS CAUSING SIDE AFFECTS OF LIVER /KIDNEY FAILURE,HEART ATTACK,STROKE PLEASE TURN THEM ON TO A MAD THAT WILL NOT CAUSE THESE ILL AFFECTS

    • You are totally right Richard. It is interesting that people just keep going to the doctor and the doctor will just keep finding something wrong over and over again. The pharmaceuticals out there have so many side effects, especially liver problems like you mentioned. I think they just put some of the elderly through the ringer to just keep them going and going to different meds as they slowly die. The older people I know that are in great shape don’t go to the doctor non stop.

      Another thing related is drinking vs. smoking weed. Elderly people that have been drinking forever are falling apart, yet the ones that mainly smoke weed seem fine at least out of the ones I know. Drinking is killing people yet weed is illegal. Even if not for medical purposes but just to chill, weed is better, while alcohol long term will kill you. On top of that, drinking crap alcohol is even extra worse as its less filtered.

What do you think?
