How many people are made ill and are affected by sugar, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, polluted air, pesticides, medications, chemicals from industry, food additives, chemicals released from products we use like chipboard, paint, and plastic, GM foods, ongoing radiation from atomic bomb testing?
These are just some of the threats to our health from our environment. A person’s lifestyle also plays a major role in having good health. If these threats were removed a better understanding would be gained on the health of our bodies. Governments need to address the pollution effects on people.
Why the scare campaign on so-called preventable illness like measles and the flu, when we suffer the effects of so many pollutants?
Medication is big business, yet disease and illness are caused by more than preventable diseases. The pollution problem in our environment plays a major role in our health.
A simple distraction is to say a vaccination is the answer, a profit is made by the drug industry just like the sugar and other industries that play a part in the pollution. Do people have the right to make a choice on how they want to live with all the pollution? Are vaccination and anti-vaccination just promoted as a smokescreen to hide what must be an underlying cause of illness and disease that are not addressed by governments?
