Big Pharma plan makes your doc a double agent
Let's face it, some of the tests your doc forces on you can start to make you feel like a pistol-whipped spy in a James Bond movie.
But it turns out you were getting worked over by 007 himself. Because your doc is about to embark on a disgusting, privacy-invading spy caper that even Hollywood couldn't have dreamed up. And I'll give you one guess who's putting him up to it.
Cheeky British researchers have just perfected a urine test your doctor can start using right away to see whether you're actually taking the sickening blood pressure meds he's prescribing for you.
Forget ASKING you whether you're taking your meds... forget having an honest CONVERSATION about whether those pricey pills are doing a damned thing they're supposed to... instead, your doc will just start following you into the bathroom.
The most amazing thing about this study is that the researchers actually found 200 Brits with high blood pressure willing to participate in this Big Brother exercise. These are the same plucky people who beat back the Nazis 70 years ago, and now they're lining up in DROVES to have their pee examined by the Big Pharma drug police.
Winston Churchill must be spinning in his grave!
Researchers say the test will help your doctor determine whether your blood pressure treatment isn't working -- or whether you simply stopped taking your drugs. And if you buy that, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.
But I know you're not that gullible... you're a Daily Dose subscriber after all! I'm sure you can already see right through this Big Pharma smokescreen. These urine tests are simply the first step toward FORCING you to take your prescription medications, whether you want to or not. The mainstream has been dipping its toe into this water for years, with proposals like policing the depressed and mentally ill to be sure they're popping their pills.
And these proposals are all about wealth, not health. The British study found that 25% of folks who had been prescribed blood pressure meds weren't taking them. That's a 25% hit right to Big Pharma's wallet, and you can bet those greedy drug company execs -- and their shareholders -- aren't taking that lying down.
There are MILLIONS of people -- If you've been listening to me maybe you're even one of them -- who don't take their blood pressure meds, or stopped refilling their prescriptions a long time ago. And who could blame them? These poison pills like calcium channel blockers and ACE inhibitors could cause everything from dizziness to cancer, and there's a one-in-six chance they'll actually INCREASE your blood pressure!
So next time your doc gets a hankering to swirl your pee under a microscope, tell him to stop snooping around and just ask whether you're taking your meds. Remind him that you trust him with your life -- and that trust is a two-way street.
