The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that patients with an underlying medical condition were 6-times more likely to be hospitalized...
... and 12-times more likely to die from COVID-19, confirming what the health care industry has known for decades: we, as health care leaders, must continue the difficult work of improving patients’ medication therapy adherence, persistence, and compliance, and chronic condition management to improve the health of the populations we serve. During this four-part webinar, learn from several leaders around the globe from the Upjohn Division of Pfizer Inc, who are using real-world data (RWD) and evidence (RWE) to develop best practices and work collaboratively with health care stakeholders to make a positive impact on this decades-old challenge.
I copied the above from a medical site where the author is concerned that health professionals and physicians are not improving drug therapy to improve the health of the population they serve. Is it any wonder that this webinar is sponsored by Pfizer?
As many times as I have said it, I will say it again. 98% of all disease is caused by consuming an unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, smoking, chemicals, and obesity. Based on a statement by Dr. Mark Hyman, 88% of all Americans are at a very high risk to contract COVID-19. Just slightly under 50% of all Americans, regardless of race or color, are obese. Obesity is the primary driver of heart disease, Diabetes type 2, liver disease, and many other diseases as well.
The lack of health is not the lack of drugs. Drugs have their place in our society but not to replace a healthy lifestyle.
Americans are not deficient in drugs. More drugs are prescribed in America than any other country in the world. 60-80% of all the drugs manufactured worldwide are consumed in America. And we are definitely the sickest industrialized country in the world.
Heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, liver disease, and even cancer are the result of our chosen lifestyle and from the way we choose to eat and live.
Drug companies have taken advantage of the consumer by advertising their drugs directly to the consumer rather than having the doctor make the decision.
This is also true for food manufacturers with budgets that are in the billions of dollars who are advertising cheap, low quality foods.
Mr. and Mrs./Ms. consumer, you are the only ones who can change the health of Americans. You are the only ones responsible for your own health. Doctors are not responsible, and certainly drug companies will not be because to them, every sick patient is a new customer. Keep the consumer uninformed and sick.
