Sorry about the header ,but I want to draw attention to the real culprit (as I see it)
I watched a program recently about so called Obese patients and how there must be a correlation around use of these drug's for pain and depression, and I wondered if they are self- perpetuating , one causing the other and what comes first, (the chicken or the egg sort of thing) and it's about time some research was done around this area as these drug's companies have no incentive to research something that is self perpetuating , a cash-cow if you will.
I say this as these right-wing media companies are roped in to do the bidding of pointing the finger at these poor Obese individuals, as I watched recently on Channel 5, as at every step to get her to Hospital, a price tag was added to each item and I wondered why they were doing it as this poor woman was certainly not happy, and to just blame people this way is not right, as it is more a symptom of the modern world, and if these programs are (kindly) to educate, or as I think , an arm of the gov't, sorry The Tory party, well at least the,' hang them and flog them brigade, as these media companies are just too cosy with this gov't, or is it that they use them to drive through policies, policies about cost, and worthy, and who is costing what' sort of thing, and before we know it, the people watching these programs are nudged into looking at our NHS in a way , a sort of, American Insurance led Health service fashion, meaning changing the philosophical slant of how we see people, i.e.' in purely financial terms, and doing away with the Humanity involved with looking after our sick and dying and eventually our disabled will be seen more and more in cost values , instead of the human condition as a whole, for we change our NHS at our peril, or at the peril of loosing the NHS values as it is now, for I see this nudging by these companies are all seem to be going in the same direction and I wonder why ?
What do you think ? as we are those that they are pointing at, but why don't they point the finger at these drug's companies, or at least as equally as they do to us, the sick and disabled
