"The opioid epidemic has claimed more than 300,000 lives in the United States since 20001 and could claim another half million over the next decade. Although heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl account for an increasing proportion of opioid-involved overdoses, the majority of persons with opioid addiction started with prescribed painkillers."
"In the late 1990s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. This subsequently led to widespread diversion and misuse of these medications before it became clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive."
"In 2019, nearly 50,000 people in the United States died from opioid-involved overdoses.1 The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement."
This is just one of many examples when technical people and the companies that manufacture their products became exuberant about a product and created a large group of unsuspecting followers that benefited from the product or technology. By judging the product through a narrow range of criteria they only see the upsides, the benefits of the product and become blind to the harm that comes with the good.
Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and J&J are all on the top 20 list of largest pharmaceutical company lawsuit settlements. Theses suits are in the Billions and Hundreds of Millions of dollars. This should make us question their corporate integrity, and people's ability to speak out when nefarious activity is happening. We should also question when they don't know the appropriate dose or how well the drug works (like these vaccines), we should also question when the companies and our government agencies are silencing any discussion about naturally acquired immunity or about COVID-19 treatments. We should be critical.
These are the drug companies that all of humanity, every human, regardless of COVID-19 disease risk, is supposed to line up behind? We're supposed to line up, every one of us, every man, woman, and child to get injected with as many doses of their vaccines as they wish regardless of many reported side effects, no long term history of these drugs, or even the technologies they are based on?
Humor me. In good faith and fear of contracting or spreading COVID-19 you "did your part" and received the COVID-19 vaccine. Fast forward to 10 or 20 years from now and now we know the Vaccines caused detrimental long term medical effects on a many people. Imagine yourself reading an article that's reviewing the COVID-19 pandemic, reviewing the risk groups, and reviewing how the drug companies and governments forced everyone into taking a drug (vaccine) that many did not need because at the time (now/2021) they were young and health, or already had immunity from infection, and had negligible statistical risk of getting severally sick or dying from the COVID-19 virus. Will you be frustrated and disgusted, or say to yourself "yeah that was a bad idea for everyone on the planet to take the same unproven drugs, based on the same unproven technologies, all within a 2 year timespan?" Hindsight is 20/20. Turn that into Foresight in 2021.
A health "expert" was presenting the other day. he said something to the affect "the VAERS database is complex and difficult to interpret. It's not drawing definitive links between vaccines and side effects, its just raising flags. The science and medical community haven't had time to study all the flags yet." I say exactly. The flags are there and we need to take time to study the most important ones before we all take the vaccine. What if the flags are telling us important information and we're ignoring them.
This list is by no means a comprehensive list of red flags. If you take the time to try filtering the VAERS database you'll see hundreds of thousands of flags. If you believe anything on social media you'll see thousand of families posting red alerts. The mere fact that not every medical worker is running in for vaccination is a flag.
Don't get caught in the feverish enthusiasm and take the vaccine without first considering your situation - your age, health profile, and previous COVID-19 infection. Please make the decision for yourself and try to have a clear, non-coerced, mind when you make that decision.
