The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease, Compliments of the Grain and Pharmaceutical Industries

The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease

This is a matter of your health being engineered without your knowledge or consent. The engineering, in this case, is not good. Actually, it’s creating pain where none should exist. Our food supply industry may be the most important industry concerned when it comes to our health. As everyone knows, ‘you are what you eat’, so it’s vital that what you eat won’t make you sick. Unfortunately, for those who still masturbate their taste buds with their addiction to sugar, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our food supply has been hijacked by the same industry that treats you for the illness their food supplies. Granted the healthcare industry is vital to our health, but I submit that it wouldn’t be as important as it is today if we paid more attention to what we eat. Because I now watch what I eat, I can change the “we” to “you”, meaning “you” have to watch what you eat. (All that means is that you still have an addiction to break, I don’t, I broke mine three years ago.) Because of this addiction, you’ve doomed yourself unwittingly to a lifetime of medications. That is unless you’re one of the .05% who shows no ill effects from glycation. I have yet to meet one of them. If you eat at a restaurant or buy groceries at a grocery store, you’re subject to this addiction. It’s in their food everywhere you look. You actually look for it because you love to eat it. You love their advertising. What’s not to love, it’s full of attractive people selling you what appears to provide health, but in all reality provides nothing but the opposite, as it’s responsible for most all pain, most all disease, all brain damage, all atherosclerosis, all diseases affiliated with inflammation, and this is just for starters.

Monsanto has politically engineered their dominance of your food supply and subsequent health by forcing as many farmers as they can to use Monsanto’s seed companies’ GMO seed to grow their crops. Monsanto has many seed companies. Their control over the seed industry is mirrored by their control over the pharmaceutical industry because they can use the seed companies to influence the profits of their drug companies. , owns 15 crop seed companies all selling GMO seed for their contracted farmers to grow. Five of these companies sell seed for wheat crops. That’s the seed that grows the wheat that’s ground into flour for your bread and crackers. Their contracted farmers have to grow Monsanto’s GMO seed at risk of facing legal action if caught growing anything else. This is how Monsanto controls what goes on your table to eat. This is also how Monsanto forces you into purchasing the Celebrex, made by GD Searle Pharmaceuticals. Searle has been part of Monsanto since 1985. The Celebrex is what your doctor prescribes for your arthritis that’s caused by the glycation set up from the grain diet you’ve been on all your life. After you get arthritis that you will inevitably get from eating their GMO grains, you’ll be begging your doctor for that prescription for the Celebrex. Then you’ll get to deal with the side effects of the Celebrex that it inevitably has and presents to the body. That’s the damage to your body from the drug side of their industry.  The damage from the crop seed side includes crops that are not only GMO seed, they are laden with Roundup, the glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting enzymes from doing what they supposed to do by instructing cells how to operate. Even though Monsanto claims that these enzyme inhibitors affect only targeted enzymes, the rise in cancer alone, that the nation has seen since the mid to late 80’s, has told a completely different story. The rise in these disorders is directly caused by an increase in the glycation that occurs in the blood by the high glucose laden grains this company forces their farmers to grow. That means that the food going on your table is engineered to make you need the medications that the pharmaceutical side of Monsanto’s companies sells.

 According to Wikipedia; “In December 1997 Monsanto merged with Pharmacia and Upjohn.[14] The agricultural division became a wholly owned subsidiary of the “new” Pharmacia; Monsanto’s medical research division, which included products such as Celebrex.[61]

GD Searle and Pharmacia are the other side of Monsanto’s multinational chemical companies,  that includes now,  Pfizer and Upjohn, as well. GD Searle was purchased by Monsanto in 1985 two years after Monsanto started dabbling in GMO crops.  In 1993 GD Searle file for a patent for Celebrex, its widely used arthritis drug. I’ll bet you didn’t know that it is Monsanto’s seed companies that force their contracted farmers to grow GMO seed designed to make you need their Celebrex. Is this what you thought you were buying when you bought those corn chips last time? Was this what you thought you were buying when you purchased those pretzels? Whether it was or not, that’s what you got. You also got all the rest of the damage that glycation does to the body, which includes cataracts, atherosclerosis, cancer and dementia as well. You’re also subjecting yourself to the hunger cycle, probably the worst manifestation of a carb diet. The more carbs you eat, the hungrier your get. That’s a cycle that can’t be broken if you don’t stop the fuel that feeds it. Stopping the fuel is the only way to stop the glycation. That means that it’s the only way to stop the inflammation, which means it’s the only way to stop the illness and disorder that glycation is responsible for.

This study done on glycative effects and Alzheimer’s disease was completed in 2005. Glycation of cholesterol into amyloid plaque was researched in this study. It showed that the plaque was responsible for Alzheimer’s disease. Where were the warnings then? It’s now 15 years later and millions of people have died from Alzheimer’s disease. The question I ask is why? Why weren’t we notified of this revelation 14 years ago? It’s been in the archives of PubMed since then. Why the delay? How many more must die before this news of the glycative effects of glucose, is released to the media to inform the public of this devastating news?

This study done on the effects of glucose on glycation was done in September 1985. Have you seen or heard of any part of this report prior to today? I haven’t. I had to search for it. The question I have is why wasn’t the public notified of this revelation? Were the research results suppressed so as to hide the truth from the public? I have to wonder.

About this same time, according to Wikipedia; In 1985, Monsanto acquired G. D. Searle & Company, a life sciences company focusing on pharmaceuticals, agriculture and animal health. In 1993, its Searle division filed a patent application for Celebrex,[42][43] which in 1998 became the first selective COX‑2 inhibitor to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[44] Celebrex became a blockbuster drug and was often mentioned as a key reason for Pfizer‘s acquisition of Monsanto’s pharmaceutical business in 2002.[45]

What wasn’t disclosed publicly was the benefit that the stockholders retained when the merger was finalized. Stockholders of Pharmacia retained 23% of their control in the new Pfizer. You wouldn’t think that would have an influence in what they do to grow their customer base to sell more drugs, would you? Regardless of what you think, it does, and they do care. Monsanto sends this industry most of their customers just from the damage their food does to those who eat it. This industry has grown to accommodate those customers, mostly with their diabetes industry and ever expanding interests in dementia. Inflammation,  cancer and atherosclerosis, just for starters.

Was it coincidence? I have to wonder. Since then Monsanto has made moves to control all of the grain industry in America, by contracting farmers to grow no other seed than their own GMO seed. This forces the farmers who do this, to spray massive amounts of herbicide on those crops. The herbicide they spray is Monsanto’s Roundup, a glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting the actions of enzymes. Enzymes are important proteins in the body as they’re cell signaling proteins that instruct cells how to operate. This is important because it’s that instruction that the cells need to not become glycation. Otherwise, without that enzyme, you create inflammation. Inflammation is the foundation of all modern diseases. This is why grains are slowly killing those who eat them, cutting their lives short, to the tune of 2,684 deaths every day, that can be attributed to these killing field grains. These signaling cells are cells like hormones and cytokines that affect your body’s functions. If these aren’t working because of any enzyme inhibitor floating around in your blood, it’s going to lead to glycation and disease. This is the scary part of this story, if you eat bread, crackers, corn chips or anything flour is used in (whether it’s wheat flour or corn flour), your eating this herbicide along with your bread and cornpone.

Did you have any idea that this was being done to you without your consent or knowledge? I didn’t until I did this research. Did you have time to do your research? Why not? If you couldn’t, wouldn’t you think that we need some regulation in the field? The FDA and the USDA are supposed to provide that. With Monsanto’s control of each of those agencies, how much honest regulation do you think could take place? The regulation that does take place, takes place only for the benefit of Monsanto and Pfizer, not the consumer. We end up the lab rats in  this experiment. In my opinion, this is a failed experiment and should be shut down as soon as possible.

This study was complete in September 1985, about the same time Monsanto acquired G.D. Searle Pharmaceuticals. 8 years later they filed for a patent for Celebrex, their arthritis pain killer drug. Celebrex is a Cox 2 NSAID with the following side effects and concerns, according to Searle, and I’m listing all of them;

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

  • Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]
  • Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Adverse effects

The widespread use of NSAIDs has meant that the adverse effects of these drugs have become increasingly common. Use of NSAIDs increases risk of having a range of gastrointestinal(GI) problems.[16] When NSAIDs are used for pain management after surgery they cause increased risk of kidney problems.[17]

An estimated 10–20% of NSAID patients experience dyspepsia. In the 1990s high doses of prescription NSAIDs were associated with serious upper gastrointestinal adverse events, including bleeding.[18] Over the past decade, deaths associated with gastric bleeding have declined.

NSAIDs, like all drugs, may interact with other medications. For example, concurrent use of NSAIDs and quinolones may increase the risk of quinolones’ adverse central nervous system effects, including seizure.[19][20]

There is argument over the benefits and risks of NSAIDs for treating chronic musculoskeletal pain. Each drug has a benefit-risk profile [21] and balancing the risk of no treatment with the competing potential risks of various therapies is the clinician’s responsibility.

Combinational risk

If a COX-2 inhibitor is taken, a traditional NSAID (prescription or over-the-counter) should not be taken at the same time.[22][not in citation given] In addition, people on daily aspirin therapy (e.g., for reducing cardiovascular risk) must be careful if they also use other NSAIDs, as these may inhibit the cardio protective effects of aspirin.

Rofecoxib (Vioxx) was shown to produce significantly fewer gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADRs) compared with naproxen.[23] This study, the VIGOR trial, raised the issue of the cardiovascular safety of the coxibs. A statistically significant increase in the incidence of myocardial infarctions was observed in patients on rofecoxib. Further data, from the APPROVe trial, showed a statistically significant relative risk of cardiovascular events of 1.97 versus placebo[24]—which caused a worldwide withdrawal of rofecoxib in October 2004.

Use of methotrexate together with NSAIDS in rheumatoid arthritis is safe, if adequate monitoring is done.[25]

Cardiovascular

NSAIDs aside from aspirin, both newer selective COX-2 inhibitors and traditional anti-inflammatories, increase the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.[26][27] They are not recommended in those who have had a previous heart attack as they increase the risk of death and/or recurrent MI.[28]Evidence indicates that naproxen may be the least harmful out of these.[27][29]

NSAIDs aside from (low-dose) aspirin are associated with a doubled risk of heart failure in people without a history of cardiac disease.[29] In people with such a history, use of NSAIDs (aside from low-dose aspirin) was associated with a more than 10-fold increase in heart failure.[30] If this link is proven causal, researchers estimate that NSAIDs would be responsible for up to 20 percent of hospital admissions for congestive heart failure. In people with heart failure, NSAIDs increase mortality risk (hazard ratio) by approximately 1.2–1.3 for naproxen and ibuprofen, 1.7 for rofecoxib and celecoxib, and 2.1 for diclofenac.[31]

On 9 July 2015, the FDA toughened warnings of increased heart attack and stroke risk associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Aspirin is an NSAID but is not affected by the new warnings.[32]

Possible erectile dysfunction risk

A 2005 Finnish study linked long term (over 3 months) use of NSAIDs with an increased risk of erectile dysfunction.[33] This study was correlational only, and depended solely on self-reports (questionnaires).

A 2011 publication [34] in the Journal of Urology received widespread publicity.[35] According to this study, men who used NSAIDs regularly were at significantly increased risk of erectile dysfunction. A link between NSAID use and erectile dysfunction still existed after controlling for several conditions. However, the study was observational and not controlled, with low original participation rate, potential participation bias, and other uncontrolled factors. The authors warned against drawing any conclusion regarding cause.[36]

Gastrointestinal

The main adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with NSAID use relate to direct and indirect irritation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. NSAIDs cause a dual assault on the GI tract: the acidic molecules directly irritate the gastric mucosa, and inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 reduces the levels of protective prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in the GI tract causes increased gastric acid secretion, diminished bicarbonate secretion, diminished mucus secretion and diminished trophic[clarification needed] effects on epithelial mucosa.

Common gastrointestinal ADRs include:[5]

Clinical NSAID ulcers are related to the systemic effects of NSAID administration. Such damage occurs irrespective of the route of administration of the NSAID (e.g., oral, rectal, or parenteral) and can occur even in patients with achlorhydria.[38]

Ulceration risk increases with therapy duration, and with higher doses. To minimise GI ADRs, it is prudent to use the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time—a practice that studies show is often not followed. Recent studies show that over 50% of patients who take NSAIDs have sustained some mucosal damage to their small intestine.[39]

There are also some differences in the propensity of individual agents to cause gastrointestinal ADRs. Indomethacinketoprofen and piroxicam appear to have the highest prevalence of gastric ADRs, while ibuprofen (lower doses) and diclofenac appear to have lower rates.[5]

Certain NSAIDs, such as aspirin, have been marketed in enteric-coated formulations that manufacturers claim reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs. Similarly, some believe that rectal formulations may reduce gastrointestinal ADRs. However, consistent with the systemic mechanism of such ADRs, and in clinical practice, these formulations have not demonstrated a reduced risk of GI ulceration.[5]

Commonly, gastric (but not necessarily intestinal) adverse effects can be reduced through suppressing acid production, by concomitant use of a proton pump inhibitor, e.g., omeprazoleesomeprazole; or the prostaglandin analogue misoprostol. Misoprostol is itself associated with a high incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs (diarrhea). While these techniques may be effective, they are expensive for maintenance therapy.

Inflammatory bowel disease

NSAIDs should be used with caution in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis) due to their tendency to cause gastric bleeding and form ulceration in the gastric lining. Pain relievers such as paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) or drugs containing codeine (which slows down bowel activity) are safer medications for pain relief in IBD.[citation needed]

Renal

NSAIDs are also associated with a fairly high incidence of renal adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The mechanism of these renal ADRs is due to changes in renal haemodynamics (kidney blood flow), ordinarily mediated by prostaglandins, which are affected by NSAIDs. Prostaglandins normally cause vasodilation of the afferent arterioles of the glomeruli. This helps maintain normal glomerular perfusion and glomerular filtration rate (GFR), an indicator of renal function. This is particularly important in renal failure where the kidney is trying to maintain renal perfusion pressure by elevated angiotensin II levels. At these elevated levels, angiotensin II also constricts the afferent arteriole into the glomerulus in addition to the efferent arteriole it normally constricts. Prostaglandins serve to dilate the afferent arteriole; by blocking this prostaglandin-mediated effect, particularly in renal failure, NSAIDs cause unopposed constriction of the afferent arteriole and decreased RPF (renal perfusion pressure).

Common ADRs associated with altered renal function include:[5]

Salt (Sodium) and fluid retention

Hypertension(high blood pressure)

These agents may also cause renal impairment, especially in combination with other nephrotoxic agents. Renal failure is especially a risk if the patient is also concomitantly taking an ACE inhibitor (which removes angiotensin II’s vasoconstriction of the efferent arteriole) and a diuretic (which drops plasma volume, and thereby RPF)—the so-called “triple whammy” effect.[40]

In rarer instances NSAIDs may also cause more severe renal conditions:[5]

Interstitial nephritis

Nephrotic syndrome

Acute renal failure

Acute tubular necrosis

Renal papillary necrosis

NSAIDs in combination with excessive use of phenacetinand/or paracetamol (acetaminophen) may lead to analgesic nephropathy.[41]

Photosensitivity

Photosensitivity is a commonly overlooked adverse effect of many of the NSAIDs.[42] The 2-arylpropionic acids are the most likely to produce photosensitivity reactions, but other NSAIDs have also been implicated including piroxicamdiclofenac and benzydamine.

Benoxaprofen, since withdrawn due to its hepatotoxicity, was the most photoactive NSAID observed. The mechanism of photosensitivity, responsible for the high photoactivity of the 2-arylpropionic acids, is the ready decarboxylation of the carboxylic acid moiety. The specific absorbance characteristics of the different chromophoric 2-aryl substituents, affects the decarboxylation mechanism. While ibuprofen has weak absorption, it has been reported as a weak photosensitising agent.[citation needed]

During pregnancy

NSAIDs are not recommended during pregnancy, particularly during the third trimester. While NSAIDs as a class are not direct teratogens, they may cause premature closure of the fetal ductus arteriosus and renal ADRs in the fetus. Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]

Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Peptic ulceror stomach bleeding[6]

Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Other

Common adverse drug reactions (ADR), other than listed above, include: raised liver enzymesheadachedizziness.[5]Uncommon ADRs include: hyperkalaemia, confusion, bronchospasm, rash.[5] Rapid and severe swelling of the face and/or body. Ibuprofen may also rarely cause irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. NSAIDs are also implicated in some cases of Stevens–Johnson syndrome.

Most NSAIDs penetrate poorly into the central nervous system(CNS). However, the COX enzymes are expressed constitutively in some areas of the CNS, meaning that even limited penetration may cause adverse effects such as somnolence and dizziness.

In very rare cases, ibuprofen can cause aseptic meningitis.[52]

As with other drugs, allergies to NSAIDs might exist. While many allergies are specific to one NSAID, up to 1 in 5 people may have unpredictable cross-reactive allergic responses to other NSAIDs as well.[53]

Drug interactions

NSAIDs reduce renal blood flow and thereby decrease the efficacy of diuretics, and inhibit the elimination of lithium and methotrexate.[54]

NSAIDs cause hypocoagulability, which may be serious when combined with other drugs that also decrease blood clotting, such as warfarin.[54]

NSAIDs may aggravate hypertension (high blood pressure) and thereby antagonize the effect of antihypertensives,[54] such as ACE Inhibitors.[55]

NSAIDs may interfere and reduce efficiency of SSRIantidepressants.[56][57]

Various widely used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) enhance endocannabinoid signaling by blocking the anandamide-degrading membrane enzyme fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH).[58]

How’s that for a warning label?  Did it have enough side effects for you? Think you might need more meds after taking this one? That label was 4094 words long. How many of those do you read? How do you know what you’re doing to your body if you don’t know what you’re putting into it? Do you think it coincidence that Monsanto started their GMO seed about the same time that glycation started being researched? Since much of this kind of research is funded by the industry it affects, I wouldn’t doubt that Monsanto had a hand in this research. This would allow them to immediately file these studies on glycation so that doctors and other scientists couldn’t find them to review. Yet each and every one of these 17,000+ studies have been vetted and examined by the NIH and PubMed. What I want to know is, why weren’t warnings about the glycative affects of glucose revealed at that time? Did Monsanto have anything to do with it?

The above list is the warning label for the adverse effects of Celebrex. Do you take Celebrex? Have you read the above warnings? Use of this drug can only lead to the use of more and more drugs. What do you think that would do for the profits for Monsanto? Do you still think this is coincidence? From renal failure, to the increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke,[26][27] this drug brings on more drug use, simply so people can get away from their pain, pain caused by consumption of Monsanto’s grains. To me this is completely an unsustainable cycle. It’s a cycle of death and disease, leaving only, people in pain. Where is the sense in keeping this addiction?

Celebrex isn’t the only drug that leads to this interdependent drug abuse orchestrated by Monsanto, Pfizer, Bayer and Syngenta. There is a profitable reason that this cycle continues. Boatloads of investors depend on it. Too bad they don’t know what it’s doing to the society that they have to life in and with.

I propose that we tell Monsanto how we feel about this, not with our voices, but with our mouths in what we eat. Quit eating grains. They’re responsible for nearly all the pain you experience (with the exception of physical injuries).Grains and the glycation they bring, bring also all inflammation that influences all diseases. Stop buying bread, crackers, cookies, anything that flour is used in, stop using it, forever. That’s the only way you can start to free yourself from the addiction. You have to stop buying their junk food. Their junk food is making you sick. It’s making you sicker by the day. Stop it, you have the power to stop it and by stopping it, it gives you power, far more power than what you ever could have imagined you would have.

According to the BJM (British Medical Journal) on Cox 2 inhibitors such as Celebrex,  Selective COX 2 inhibitors are associated with a moderate increase in the risk of vascular events, as are high dose regimens of ibuprofen and diclofenac, but high dose naproxen is not associated with such an excess. How often do you need to take an Advil for your headache? Were you aware of what that painkiller does to your kidneys and liver or how much it increased your odds of having a heart attack? Why weren’t you made aware of that when it was sold to you? Maybe it was. Every drug commercial is primarily a dissertation of the adverse effects and precautions and contraindications each drug has. They all have to include this in all advertising. You’d think that that would dissuade anyone from buying into what has turned out to be nothing more than a perception of health. What drug use leads to is really not relief but continued drug use. It’s called ongoing treatment. Every hospital takes part in it. This is the effect of a society on carbohydrates….a society on drugs.

In all, there were 11,833 studies on PubMed, on the effects of glucose glycating proteins, hemoglobin, and cholesterol dating back to March, 1984. {There were 17628 studies done on PMC.) Incidentally, that was one month after I was released from the hospital after spending a month in a coma and suffering two strokes while comatose. I could have never come back this far without Dr Perlmutter’s help and advice that it was the AGEs that were hindering my recovery. Again, I have to thank you, Dr Perlmutter.

With having the evidence for over 30 years, why hasn’t the public been told about glycation or the AGEs they create prior to Dr Perlmutter’s book, Grain Brain? It’s those AGEs that are at the root of all modern diseases. If this was uncovered 30+ years ago, why have we just found out about it from the bestselling books from two doctors? Was someone trying to hide something? My guess is yes.

This is Monsanto’s path to power and freedom. Their freedom is to wreak whatever havoc they can on your health by masturbating your taste buds with their glucose laden products, so you’ll be buying their pharmaceuticals in the near future. By near, I mean, it only takes a couple days before you’re indebted (addicted). If you want true power and freedom, you can have it in two weeks. That’s how long it takes to break the addiction. Or you can do it with a fast in 3 days.
