A Case Where Medicine Proves to be the Problem Not the Cure

My wife can tell you that I hate seeing commercials during the evening news for this drug or that drug, (here’s a drug to help you sleep better, here’s a drug to have a better sex life, etc). I’ve believed that an overuse of medicine that messes with the natural process of a body will actually harm a body. For example, I don’t care much for giving drugs to little children for things like ADHD and other issues that are not life threatening to a child. You add foreign chemicals to a child and then wonder later on why that child has serious other issues. Well, according to a recent study the use of a drug in this case hormone replacement therapy has led to an increase in cases of breast cancer. When warned to not use it anymore, back in 2002, the cases of breast cancer dropped dramatically by 7%, when before that they were slowly on the rise.

I understand I am not a woman and I don’t know, nor will I ever know, the pains women have to go through during menopause, however, when we mess with our bodies’s natural process to such a degree, we end up paying a price that we might not want to pay.

We should not be relying on medicines, specifically drugs, as frequently as we have been.
