Big Pharma Doesn’t Want Healthy People

Dr. John L. Reizer

Author of The Target List novel

Like any business, drug companies want more customers. Unlike any other business, these multinational corporations have the means to create lifelong customers because they can get their prospects chemically addicted to dangerous, synthetic compounds that have been specifically designed for that purpose.

Think about the people in your life that take prescription medicines. You probably know an aunt or uncle that takes a pill to control hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, or some other chronic condition. Maybe the person you know taking a prescribed drug is a parent or a sibling. Maybe you’re the person addicted to a prescription drug. How long have you been taking the same pill for a medically diagnosed condition? Has it been days, weeks, months or years? Chances are good that the people you know taking prescription drugs have been doing so for an extended period of time. Chances are equally good that the people you know taking medications aren’t planning on kicking their habits anytime soon.

The drug companies are in business to create and sell addictive, chemical products perceived by the members of society to be necessary in order to create a healthy, functioning body. People actually believe, in today’s world, the only way to control diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol is through prescription drugs. The average person doesn’t give much consideration to the idea of getting off the sofa to partake in an exercise program. Most people want instant gratification. They want to be healthy without having to put serious effort into their campaigns. They’d rather take a prescription drug than walk a few miles everyday to improve some flagged chemistry profile that was discovered in a lab test ordered by a physician.

There are many healthcare experts openly questioning recommended, published guidelines pertaining to blood pressure and cholesterol. For years, allopathic medicine supported the idea that a good systolic blood pressure was 100 + a person’s age. If a person was 65 years old, an acceptable blood pressure reading, according to the old guidelines, was around 165/80. But that didn’t bode well for Big Pharma’s plan to medicate most of the U.S. population. The solution, lower the published guidelines so millions of people could instantly be reclassified as having hypertension. Suddenly, there was a need for a lot more drugs to be prescribed to all those people diagnosed with high blood pressure.

It’s the opinion of some natural healthcare practitioners that cholesterol guidelines have also been published at a lower level than is attainable by the body through natural measures. The current guidelines are practically unattainable without synthetic drugs. There are serious questions being asked by some scientists about the dangers of Statin drugs which artificially lower cholesterol levels in human beings, and about how low cholesterol might negatively impact the immune system over time.

As long as there continues to be lazy and apathetic people in the world, drug companies will continue to prosper.

It’s pretty ironic that we commonly associate the drug business with healthcare when, in fact, it’s sickness care this industry and its associated professions are pedaling.

The countless drugs being produced by a myriad of companies are not designed to make people healthy. They are designed to control and suppress the symptoms associated with physiological disorders. Many of these symptoms are important and strategic attempts by the body to naturally heal bodily tissues.

To heal the body from the inside out is a concept not often addressed, for the most part, by members of organized medicine or the pharmaceutical industry. To address, in a public forum, the idea that human beings could possibly resolve physiological obstacles without the use of synthetically made products, that have U.S. and international patents firmly attached to them, would be considered pseudo-science by many traditional healthcare professionals. Individual doctors and scientists having the nerve to broach publicly any ideas that might rub friction into conventional, medical dogma of the present day, are usually ostracized from their colleagues, supervisors and profession. To go against the grain, in the medical world, is to commit professional suicide.

The drug corporations; the medical schools and associated textbooks they produce for such institutions; the insurance companies they indirectly own or control; the media companies that sponsor drug advertisements or are directly owned by parent companies that have ownership ties to drug companies; the research scientists that are paid by funds coming from institutions and grants with close ties to drug companies, and the profitability factor associated with selling pharmaceutical products that are inexpensive to produce and sold, in many instances, at a 1000% markup in price to healthcare consumers are the enabling components allowing this national health crisis to continue year after year. Meanwhile, we have politicians and people up in arms, arguing about what’s the best way to pay for prescription drugs that are killing many of us. What’s the best solution? Obamacare? Trumpcare? Forget about paying for this crap. We need to stop producing these poisons right now if we ever hope to get people back to a true state of health.

The statistics compiled by the World Health Organization (WHO) demonstrate a very disturbing trend for people living in America. Despite the fact our nation has the best and most sophisticated healthcare technology in the world, we continue to have a lot of unhealthy people walking around. If one were to put two and two together, a simple conclusion could be drawn that would clearly point to prescription drugs as being the major culprit that’s been dragging the entire nation’s health status into the toilet when compared to other countries throughout the world keeping similar statistics.

As I’ve written many times before, in various books and articles, Big Pharma does not gain anything, from a financial perspective, by developing products that would cure any specific disease process. To find a cure is counter productive to the drug industry’s goal of expanding its business. To find a cure means, in effect, to destroy business. There’s no money to be made when people are functioning in a healthy manner. The money and potential profit are all based on a nation filled with sick and dying citizens. The more sick people there are, the better the profits will be for Big Pharma.

Most of what healthcare consumers understand about health has come from textbooks and media presentations that are completely controlled by the pharmaceutical industry. With today’s media construct, there are very few sources people can access to get reliable, unbiased information on the subject of health. At NoFakeNews, we are attempting to provide readers with reliable information about health and other important subjects.

On a closing note, I believe it’s important to remind everybody to become active participants when it comes to their health and well being. Commit to a daily exercise program; drink plenty of clean, non-fluoridated water; eat a healthy, balanced diet, and refrain from visiting medical physicians unless you encounter an emergency situation that cannot be stabilized without the presence of medical personnel. By using a little common sense, when reviewing options that might affect your health, you can decrease the odds of becoming dependent on prescription drugs and being harmed by drug companies that are not in business to make you healthy.

An Interview with Allen Grunerud – Narrator of The Target List

By NoFakeNews

Recently, we had an opportunity to ask the narrator of The Target List audiobook, Allen Grunerud a few questions. Here’s what he had to say:

When did you know you wanted to be an audiobook narrator?

I had been thinking about audiobook narration for several years prior to retiring from teaching a couple of years ago.  I have experience in voice-over and commercial work, so this seemed a logical transition.

How did you wind up narrating audiobooks? Was it always your goal or was it something you stumbled into by chance?

I am relatively new to audiobook narration.  I taught theatre and English for many years; that combination leads to a love of language and a reverence for the spoken word.  Narration provides an opportunity for artistic expression in the comfort of a home studio.

Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?

I use the ACX format to find audition opportunities.  ACX is the Amazon Audible production site that matches authors and producers and streamlines the business end of audiobook production.  It was not too long after I began auditioning that I began receiving offers.

A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?

I do think it is essential to be able to interpret an author’s words and be able to verbalize a character or mood.  Having been an actor and director for decades has made the move to audiobooks fairly seamless.

What type of training have you undergone?

I have my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Theatre and I produced and directed plays and musicals for professional, educational and community theatres.

How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?

As I indicated, I am fairly new to audiobook narration, so the process still feels fresh and enticing.  New projects bring new enthusiasm and I love to explore a new book and work with authors.

Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?

I am an audiobook listener; it was my salvation several years ago when I was commuting to work.  It is an excellent way to catch up on “reading” without having to read.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of narrating an audiobook?

My favorite part of narration is the interpretation and presentation of the author’s vision—trying to bring that to life.  I have great respect for writers; creation is a very personal thing, so I want to come as close as I can to make my narration fit the author’s intent.   My least favorite part, I suppose, is the technical end of things: editing and such. Also, I spend an inordinate amount of time re-recording in order to get the words right, get the sound right, get the mood right.

What would you say are your strongest narration abilities?

I guess I bring authenticity to my narration.  A believability. You never want the narration to sound like you are just reading a text.

What about this title compelled you to audition as narrator?

“The Target List” really piqued my curiosity because of its subject matter, its unlikely heroes and its suspenseful nature.  Once I began working on it I appreciated the economy of language and the very accessible and endearing characters. In addition, John (Reizer) is a very supportive and nurturing author to work with, which made the project a joy from beginning to end.  This is a terrific book and I hope I have done it justice.

What Does it Mean to be Healthy?

By Dr. John Reizer

Author of The Target List Novel

All life has the natural ability to adapt to its surrounding environment. Whether we are discussing very small organisms or the most complex forms of life (human beings); living things must either adapt to their environment or cease to exist.

How adequately or inadequately life adapts to its surroundings is the true measuring stick of an organism’s level of health. This formula is applicable to both microscopic organisms and human beings.

When a person becomes physically or emotionally compromised, (run down, overworked, over-stressed, malnourished, etc.) his or her natural abilities to adapt to environmental stresses become less than what they should. Naturally occurring microbes, that humans normally coexist with, suddenly pose a serious threat to physiological systems when a particular individual is unable to properly adapt to environmental challenges. In other words, we become unhealthy when we lose our natural adaptive tendencies.

We don’t catch influenza because we come in contact with a specific virus. We become infected because our immunological defenses, that allow us to adapt to that viral microbe, are weakened or compromised. Bacteria and viral opportunists, that we regularly encounter, are only as strong as our natural, adaptive tendencies allow them to be. This is why only five out of ten people will come down with the flu or another sickness that has crossed everybody’s path. The five individuals that remained healthy weren’t just lucky. They adapted more appropriately, in an immunological sense, than the five people that contracted a particular strain of influenza.

Catch a flu virus or some other type of bacterial infection and your body will immediately begin a plan of attack in an effort to adapt to the challenging, microbial invader. In most situations, human physiology will activate a fever to kill off the bacteria or virus affecting your body. Most of these opportunistic organisms cannot survive in higher temperature ranges and so the body modifies its internal thermostat, making it impossible for them to survive. The body’s ability to adapt is absolutely amazing.

Unfortunately, in many situations, human beings do a plethora of things that interfere with the body’s innate abilities to adapt to its environment. Taking fever reducing drugs is one of them. Because we have been misled by drug companies, that have a financial interest in teaching us bad health practices, we commonly believe fever is a bad thing and that it can cause brain damage. In reality, fever is a friend and will minimize the duration and severity of most common illnesses that are generated from opportunistic bacteria and viruses.

There are many things that you can do on a daily basis that will improve your body’s ability to adapt to its surrounding environment. Consuming drugs, vaccines, artificial sweeteners, unnatural food additives, and other toxins are not some of them.

Consuming fruits, vegetables, non fluoridated water, and eating properly will help your body adapt to its environment more efficiently.

Because the intelligence that regulates your body’s physiology, and allows you to adapt to your environment, operates directly through the nervous system, it’s vitally important you have your spine checked by a chiropractor several times each year for tiny vertebral misalignments called subluxations. If left unchecked, spinal subluxations can inhibit the functioning capability of the nervous system and will cause the human body to adapt less efficiently to its surrounding environment. This translates into an unhealthy individual.

When people finally begin to understand and respect the fact that true health originates from a living thing’s ability to properly adapt to its immediate surroundings, we will finally begin to see a marked improvement in the overall health of our population.

The Target List Audiobook Review by Author L.S. Fellows

By L.S. Fellows, Author

The story begins with a “doctor” casting a wand over a young girl and curing her of a terminal disease. But it is some time before Clyde Daniel and his associate Donna are ready to share their breakthrough with the world.

However, it seems the world – or rather Big Pharma – is neither ready nor willing to accept this new radio wave technology. Many among us would query their hesitancy. Why would anyone not welcome such technology? Isn’t the point of Big Pharma to find cures for those pernicious diseases? Of course it is. But, such ‘cures’ come at a price – the cost of research is reflected in the amount charged for any new wonder drug.

Now, if patients no longer need to take daily medication to ease their pain and suffering as a result of chronic illness and diseases, then the demand for such pills and potions becomes redundant.

Oops!

Could big pharmaceutical companies be holding out against cures for today’s killer diseases? Is it all about money after all?

The short chapters really keep the pace taut and tense in this thought-provoking story. The narration adds to the tension, the personality of the main characters comes through, as does excitement for the wand’s potential in regards to the future of healthcare.

I could happily have listened to more about the characters and the conspiracies they face in bringing the wand to market, but I have to admit that the brevity of the story delivers the desired shock factor. It certainly had me thinking about the role of Big Pharma and the drugs industry and made me ever more thankful for European healthcare systems on which I currently rely. That said, if only there really could be something available like the wand … how amazing would that be?

Highly recommended for fans of medical thrillers: sharp, pacy and thought-provoking.

A THOUGHT – PROVOKING STORY

FIVE STARS!

The short chapters really kept the pace taut and tense in this thought provoking story. Could big pharmaceutical companies be holding out against cures for today’s killer diseases? Is it all about money after all?
A most interesting story.

STRONG NARRATION

FIVE STARS

This was a nicely narrated book by Mr. Grunerud and a cleverly written story by Dr. John Reizer. The book was entertaining and also very educational at the same time.

I was issued a free copy of the audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

AN ACTION PACKED STORY!

FIVE STARS

The Target List has action from start to finish. I loved the story. It’s about a team of doctors that invented a medical device that cures cancer without drugs. Big Pharma hires assassins to kill the doctors and the technology because they’re going to lose billions of dollars. It’s definitely worth the listen! I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I ADORE THIS STORY

FIVE STARS

I absolutely adore this story. I also admire how the characters are developed and how much the author can get the listener to invest in them. Wonderfully written book. The narrator, Allen Grunerud has done a nice job as well. I was given a free advance copy of this audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

SCARY AS HELL

FIVE STARS

Dr. John Reizer is a great author. I have never been a fan of medical thrillers but this one pulled me in from the beginning and hasn’t let me go. The author is meticulous in his research and very crafty in creating a story that is believable and scary as hell! I was given a free advance copy of this audio book at my request and have left this review voluntarily.

THIS WAS GREAT!

FIVE STARS

This has action from beginning to end. Short and fast and focused, it acknowledges one of the current beliefs that Big Pharma doesn’t want to cure anybody because it would hit their profits. The author’s writing style is different from Robin Cook, but if you like Robin Cook, you will also like this book.
I really liked the narrator. He does a good job differentiating different characters.

I was given this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.

Why They Attack Alternative Healthcare

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Author of The Target List

Throughout the relatively short history of modern healthcare, there have been continuous attempts to undermine the credibility of alternative healthcare professions. Very powerful organizations have carefully designed and implemented impressive strategies to make natural healthcare disciplines and their practitioners look like quacks and charlatans.

Professionals are routinely hired by undisclosed, secret entities to give false interviews, write defamatory books, construct disingenuous websites and participate in broad scale efforts that target healthcare consumers and help create, for them, false perceptions about natural healthcare practices.

The funding of these activities, although difficult to trace for the average person, obviously originate from petrochemical corporations. Due to a number of legal factors, it is often quite cumbersome to point fingers at specific business entities, as well as others that might be involved with the inner workings of such conspiratorial activities.

As one might suspect, the targets and casualties on the battlefield are always the same. Any healthcare professions, modalities, or treatment protocols that go against the grain of conventional medical theories are fair game.

Debunking agents are used on a regular basis to keep society firmly aligned with the parameters of acceptable thinking regarding many genres that make up our fabric of perceived reality. This is true in the healthcare arena as well.

Any idea or concept that challenges the accepted thinking patterns of everyday people are quickly identified and dealt with in an expeditious manner by specialists that are paid to write and publish biased comments on websites and blogs. If, for example, a large minority of the population suddenly began to question the authenticity of something that was being reported by the mainstream media, trained debunkers are always ready to spring into action. These people, through the implementation of strategic campaigns, can quickly minimize the damage being caused by a controversial voice within the population base.

Broad scale debunking can make sure that the majority of the population continues to perceive reality the way that the media originally intended.

Major petrochemical/pharmaceutical companies have a lot at stake in the very lucrative disease care industry. In order for these large multinational companies to remain profitable and powerful, society must continue to believe in certain erroneous concepts. As long as people continue to believe the maintenance of human health can be achieved through vaccines and that the suppression of symptoms in human physiology is the way to cure diseases, people will remain sick and pharmaceutical companies will continue to rake in astronomical profits.

Alternative healthcare professions often point out significant flaws that are absolutely inherent within the framework of traditional medicine’s illogical theories. Because of this fact, it has been a longstanding goal of established medicine’s controllers (Big Pharma) to retain the services of credible appearing scientists and other professionals that can write or convey damaging remarks about a particular alternative healthcare profession.

Very simply explained, when someone or something is intelligently challenging the credibility of a lucrative industry like traditional medicine, and they have damaging evidence that could blow the doors off the barn so to speak, and prove that many theoretical applications used within the medical profession are, in fact, the truest forms of quackery in existence, a major problem is created for the powers that be.

The only way for Big Pharma to activate a campaign of damage control is to discredit the people and the professions that are posing the most legitimate threat, at a particular time, to established medical dogma. This is why alternative healthcare concepts are not embraced by science. This is why many alternative healthcare professions are publicly attacked and their objectives and benefits never see the light of day. What you will find out, if you take the time to study this subject matter, is that what is often promoted by the mainstream as science is actually quackery and what is often labeled by the same groups as quackery is true science.

Quite a few web addresses have been designed to make potential viewers wary of alternative healthcare services. It is easy to land on such disingenuous websites. All you have to do is find a search engine and type in an alternative healthcare practice methodology that is in opposition to traditional medicine and you will see such websites populate your computer screen. The sites all claim to be there to protect the general public from harmful alternative healthcare professions. Are you kidding me? Have you ever read the drug warnings that accompany prescription and non prescription drugs? Dangerous and extremely toxic drugs are what healthcare consumers need to be protected from, not natural healthcare professions and practitioners that are often licensed by state agencies to offer their beneficial services.

My advice to healthcare consumers that come across anti-alternative healthcare websites is to realize that this type of content is being purposely placed in the public domain by powerful organizations that have direct connections to the Medical Establishment. The ultimate goal of Big Pharma is to make healthcare consumers believe that alternative healthcare disciplines are all based on pseudo-scientific principles.

Remember to keep in mind that in most situations the differences between scientific and pseudo-scientific studies have to do with who or what entities are paying for the research being performed. If a given study is being funded by a petrochemical company, that has a biased interest in the research taking place, it is usually referred to by the mainstream thinkers as scientific. If, on the other hand, a particular study is being funded by a non biased organization, or has been privately funded by someone that wants the truth to be revealed about something they have deemed important, it is often viewed by the mainstream thinkers as pseudo science.

An Interview with Dr. John Reizer

By Gina Flores

Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing NoFakeNews founder and author, Dr. John Reizer about his recent novel, The Target List. Here’s what he had to say:

Gina: How does it feel to have written a pretty damn good novel?

John: I am happy with the way the story turned out. There are always aspects of a story that I think that I should have done a bit differently, but I think most writers have the same feelings regarding their books. This story is special to me because of the underlying message it attempts to convey to readers and listeners.

Gina: It seems to me from looking at all the reviews on Amazon and Audible that your story has been well received by most readers. Were you expecting such positive reviews and feedback?

John: Well you know, I didn’t know what to expect. Usually, my books receive very little in the way of reviews. When you’re an unknown author swimming in a sea of established authors, it’s hard to get people to read your work, let alone rate and review it. I think, initially , I believed there would be more negative reviews than positive ones. And not because of my writing abilities, but because the storyline is based on a very polarizing subject. Anytime you write something negative about traditional medicine or the pharmaceutical industrial complex, you’re inviting and opening yourself up to hostile reader reviews.

Gina: Have you received any bad or hostile reviews?

John: I haven’t really received too many negative reviews for The Target List. There have been a few 2 and 3 star ratings, but not everybody is going to fall in love with your story.

Gina: Do you like the way the audiobook turned out?

John: Oh yes! I think Allen Grunerud did such a great job with the book. The audiobook has been on and off of Amazon’s Top 100 list for Medical Thrillers. It’s been spending a lot of time on the list this past week. I am so happy with the way he produced the project. And his work has been positively reviewed on Audible. There have been lots of great reviews on that platform and that’s a direct result of Allen’s narration skills.

Gina: What’s next for this story?

John: I am collaborating with a screenwriter to hopefully turn the story into a low budget movie thriller. That’s the plan at least. I think you have to aim high and see how things shake out. But, honestly, I have a good feeling about The Target List moving forward. Regardless of what happens from this point, the rest is frosting on the cake for me. This story has already exceeded my original expectations.

Gina: Are you working on another story?

John: I have delayed beginning my next novel because I have been involved with the screenplay project. That’s going to take several months to complete so I want to wait until that’s wrapped up before concentrating on something new. But I am having fun with this book and I am still writing articles everyday for NoFakeNews.
