Drug shortages seem to be igniting some problems for pharmaceutical companies and health officials – so much so that president Barack Obama previously issued an executive order demanding that the Food and Drug Administration address the shortages. Per Obama’s request, the FDA is taking action and continues to fight the drug shortages traversing the United States. Despite mostly being mostly manufactured in China with virtually no inspection, mega-tumor-linked pharmaceutical drugs are now being rolled out more than ever before.

It was only last month when we reported on the struggle pharmaceutical companies are going through with filling prescriptions for ADHD. More than 18 million prescriptions were written for Adderall in 2010, up 13.4 percent from 2009. While pharmaceutical companies would normally be thrilled about this, they are actually struggling  to acquire enough of the active ingredient used in the drug, Adderall, to ‘treat’ the ‘disease. This is leading to complications for the drug companies since they are unable to provide for the high demand. Of course the information showing that ADHD can be combated with simple dietary changes is of no concern to drug giants.

Now, the Food and Drug Administration has announced on Tuesday that they will be taking measures to increase the supply of two other drugs – Methotrexate, a drug for children with leukemia, and Doxil, a drug used to ‘treat’ various cancers. Until the FDA successfully increases available supplies of the original drugs, substitute drugs from overseas will be implemented for United States patients. Nearly half of all pharmaceutical drugs within the United States are already produced overseas, with a shocking 81% of the 3,765 unregulated foreign factories never having been inspected by the FDA.

Is an executive order from the president forcing the FDA to supply the nation with more pharmaceutical drugs the answer to the nation’s health crisis? It isn’t a pharmaceutical drug deficiency that is causing such health ailments, but rather a weak immune system deficient in vital vitamins and nutrients. There have been some great advancements in the field of nutritional science, but pharmaceutical drugs have become the only ‘solution’ as far as the medical establishment goes. Interestingly, There have been zero deaths as a result of vitamins and over 3 million deaths related to prescription drug use over the past 27 years.

But why are natural solutions – which actually have virtually no side effects and boost overall immunity – being ignored?

Turmeric alone is known to positively affect over 573 diseases and has even decreased brain tumor size in animals by 81 percent in more than 9 studies. So why hasn’t turmeric been recommended as an inexpensive and powerful solution, potentially saving billions in healthcare costs per year? Instead, government organizations like the CDC and the FDA push pharmaceuticals on the public while suppressing many health-promoting supplements like turmeric and vitamin D.

The pharmaceutical industry is prospering. With each drug comes an average of 70 negative side-effects, all of which are targeted by yet another pharmaceutical for treatment. It is an endless cycle of pharmaceuticals which must be taken for a lifetime. Advancements are great, but the current mainstream medial system is a complete failure.

    Part 1~ Dr Leon Eisenburg has told us a truth, what people now are going to choose to believe is another story entirely. The truth simply stated by Dr, Leon Eisenburg: ADD and ADHD drugs are "Human enhancements by means of pharmacological agents. The consumption of pharmacological agents alter the child’s behavior without any contribution on his or her part. That amounts to interference in the child’s freedom and personal rights, because pharmacological agents induced behavioral changes – but failed to educate the child on how to achieve these behavioral changes, independently. The child was thus deprived of an essential learning experience to act autonomously and emphatically which considerably curtails children’s freedom and impairs their personality development.

    Drug shortages pharmaceutical companies are currently facing is never inspected by the FDA. This article really points on all the mistakes done by authorities that lead to the drug shortage. Now it will take time to come back to the normal procedures. <a href="” target=”_blank”>

    There is a shortage of Morphine, Mag sulfate, Epinephren, Valium, cancer meds, etc…. Personally, I don't understand why. Could it be because the government is hoarding it? The official reason, not enough profit and to much regulation just doesn't make sense.

    Funny how the FDA and elite have no problem with Americans buying all sorts of food produced over seas. Both natural and processes foods which are largely unrequlated in their home countries. But the American people are locked out of the global economy (and therefore price competition)by big pharma's lobbying in Washington. The people of the United States pay the highest prescription drug prices in the entire world.

    If the market was open to competition those prices would drop by 60-70% in short order. After all people isn't the drive to be "competitive" in the global market place the justification for all the wage and benefit cuts, the job loses and declining standard of living in the US? Why are we not allowed to participate in the "global" markets when ever it would mean lower prices for us? What a crock.

      I'm OK with the prices being higher. It helps to make them "less available." Americans already consume a majority of the prescription drugs in the world. If prices dropped by 60% that number, I fear, would jump substantially.

        wow…just the statistic alone are very disturbing.
