Profit Comes First for Big Pharma

David Brownstein, M.D. By Wednesday, 09 March 2016 04:59 PM EST Current | Bio | Archive

Synthetic hormones are substances with a similar structure to our own naturally produced hormones, but slightly altered by the Big Pharma cartel.

Why would the giant drug companies change the chemical structure? It all comes down to money.

Natural substances cannot be patented. For example, the chemical structure that defines vitamins A, C, and E cannot be patented.

But in order to make a profit, Big Pharma companies need to patent their products. Once a company holds a patent on a particular substance, it essentially has a monopoly on that business for the length of the patent — and the profit margins for patentable products are much larger than profits on non-patentable products.

This is why we have so many synthetic drugs on the market. These patentable substances are the greatest source of revenue for Big Pharma.

The problem with synthetic substances is that they are foreign to our bodies. We don’t have receptors to bind these products, nor do we have proper detoxification pathways to remove them.

More than 95 percent of prescription drugs are synthetic agents that are foreign to the human body. There is no way to predict how a patient will react to a synthetic substance.

Is it any wonder that synthetic drugs are associated with severe, life-threatening adverse effects?

On the other hand, the human body does have dedicated receptors for natural (and bioidentical) vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, we have the ability to properly metabolize and expel these substances from our bodies.
