(NaturalHealth365) The upcoming generations can be called the RX generation, they all will have an incredible journey with lessons on the danger of pharmaceuticals and addiction. This up and coming generation will learn that modern day life dependents on drugs for its sustainability.
Billions of dollars will be invested in maintaining our dependence on chemical agents. The advanced innovations, technology and solutions will bolster the already strong demand for chemical solutions to both psychological and physical stresses.
The new generation of young people have been dubbed generation RX. This is a title that is fitting considering the medical climate of this country. This generation will shatter the long held believe in the ability of humans to adapt and thrive in nature. This is the generation, which will think that pharmaceuticals will add years to their life, and give them an edge in curing all problems.
To speak the language of modern day Americans means knowing the names of prescription pills, and their uses. The selling points of all prescriptions are the quick-fix for just about any condition. Young people brought up in this environment will be prepared to embrace pills as a way to control the risks of modern life. Medications are used to mange pain, discomfort or just life stresses.
The reported use of prescription drugs includes the use of pharmaceuticals by 12th graders. It seems that 26% have taken prescriptive drugs at least one time without a doctor’s prescription.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, every day approximately 2,500 young people between the ages of 12 and 17 years abuse a prescription painkiller for the first time.
Prescription medication abuse is the second leading cause of accidental demise in the United States. More Americans abuse prescription medication than cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, and inhalants combined. That is pretty impressive; the documented reports show how pharmaceuticals have invaded our children’s lives. One if five teens abuses a prescription drug at least once in their lifetime.
These drugs are used to stay up to study, help with sleep, keep anxiety in check, and run from depressive thoughts. The seeds of deception start early with a medical system non-discerning use of cold medication, antibiotics, Ritalin, anti-depressive and medication marketed as the ultimate answer to the public health crises.
Prescription Drug Abuse
The exchange on this topic for me is slightly different. The prescription drug abuse is coming from the prescription pads, marketing, and pharmaceutical industry. The budding future for our children is beginning to look like a nightmare. The gains by the pharmaceutical industry in profit will be the destruction of our children’s future.
This generation was in the making for decades, with doctors, government, and industry in on the pimping of what should be controlled substances. You can only find what you are looking for if it is on the drugstore and supermarket shelves. The rest you need to get a prescription for. These prescriptions are commercially generated for profit above safety.
The dynamics that influence our legal drug supply aren’t based on efficiency, but on monetary yields. Generation RX will be paying the price for the industries callous approach to managing Americans health care system. The day-to-day life of Americans is significantly controlled by big interests, which doesn’t include the welfare of this population.
