Lots of stuff we’re told is good for us actually isn’t.
That’s why I trust my own experience, my own eyes and my own ears, and I take the advice of “experts” and advertisers with a truckload of salt. And I sure as hell don’t trust people who stand to make huge profits from products they push at the expense of my health, welfare and well-being.
Medication has its place and I’m thankful for drugs that alleviate pain, help cure diseases, and prolong life (in a good way), etc. But I don’t believe in inappropriately marketing and inappropriately prescribing drugs that make things worse instead of better. I’ve also learned it’s unwise to believe everything everybody tells me, especially when they have lots to gain from lying.
