“I Need Oxygen!”

That is what test pilots would say before passing out due to hypoxia as they pushed their new toys up into the upper layers of the atmosphere in the dawn of aviation.

Yeah, I need oxygen, too.

As an integrative doctor I continue to be appalled and sometimes angered by the arrogance and cheating ways of Big Pharma. It relentlessly brainwashes the public and practitioners into believing that chemicals that treat only symptoms are the only choice to restore and maintain health while denigrating, and even planting misinformation about nutrition and supplements. Oh, never mind that a significant number of their drugs are marketed despite clear research showing that they increase mortality. They hide the negative evidence, hoping they will make a few millions before the truth leaks out, never mind the dead patients along the way.

It turns out that the Air Force commissioned medical doctors to come up with a solution to pilots’ hypoxia. Being “educated” a certain way, doctors back then spent months trying to come up with a pill to treat low oxygen. After months of fruitless research, the AF got fed up and called in engineers to look into the problem:

“Why don’t you just give the pilots oxygen masks?”

Yeah, I need one, too; it also stinks here…..

Thanks for this great post - it says so much.

I am in an unfortunate situation - I am an RPh (3 years out, now), and finally seeing the big picture regarding pharmaceuticals and their use - kind of wishing I could take another direction - but not wanting to waste the education I'm still paying for. Any suggestions????

I need some oxygen, too!
