NFL Partnership with Big Pharma

In this age of instantaneous gratification giving someone pills to treat their illness is the absolute norm.  Most patients docilely accept these medicines and do not even think to question the doctor.  They do not question their motives and interests, they just accept their fate.  The widespread abuse of painkillers is a very big problem. We’ve all seen those commercials that promote a new drug and then you hear that long, obscure list of the dangerous side effects.  The thousands of dangerous side effects like organ failure, blindness, and quite often, even actual death.  Now how can death be a side effect? Death is actually an ultimatum if you ask me.  There is no coming back from death, but these doctors tell you it’s a side effect.  As a concerned citizen, I am now seeing that this painkiller abuse problem has trickled down to our top athletes.

Team doctors are also part of this sick machine and have no problem pumping players full of painkillers to help them stay on course during the season.  According to the Natural News, “The NFL has recently come under fire for violating federal regulations regarding prescription medications, ignoring the guidance of the DEA and lastly, filling players with painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs.”  These are temporary solutions to solving a chronic problem.  Addiction is not acceptable on any level and players are becoming addicted just like normal working people.  1,800 players have come forward to press these issues of non-compliance and of course the NFL has openly denounced these claims.  Just like the tobacco industry use to deny cigarettes being detrimental to your health, your doctors may be getting over on you because of misinformation.  Remember the end game for these corporations is always profit over people.
