Parallels of America's Pharmaceutical System and Vending Machines

Fun fact: the first vending machine was created over 2,000 years ago by a Greek mathematician named Hero, who also invented the syringe. However, rather than providing holy water, like the vending machines in ancient Egyptian temples, vending machines today are designed to provide people with quick, unhealthy snacks. The foods high-processed foods offered by vending machines have been linked to “increased inflammation, reduced control of infection, increased rates of cancer, and increased risk for allergic and auto-inflammatory disease” [1].

To read more about the adverse health effects of processed foods, view my recent article, “Chronic Effects of Processed Foods.”

Since it is known processed foods directly cause harmful health effects, who is benefitting from this situation? Big Pharma. Big Pharma has been tasked with producing toxic chemicals in the form of medication to help mask the symptoms of junk food and processed food, and getting medication to help with these symptoms is very similar to choosing a snack out of a vending machine.

While it may take a prescription from a medical doctor to get access to the pharmaceutical vending machine, it does not take much more than someone telling the doctor they have pain, depression, or anxiety, and voila, they now have their fresh dosing of medicine, more pills for an American to eat, with their junk food.

For example, when scanning a vending machine for a snack, one simply must decide they are hungry, walk to a vending machine, choose the snack they want, type in its code, wait for the machine to dispense the snack, and then the individual opens the package and gets to indulge in the toxins and artificial chemicals they call flavor and satisfaction.

The same parallels can be drawn to getting a prescription.

Likewise, if someone wants a quick fix of heroin, essentially opiates, they hardly need to put forth any effort [2]. All one must do it go to the doctor, pull out their medical card, give their information to the clerk, sit, and wait for their name to be called. Then, when their name is called, they follow the nurse to their room, and when the doctor comes in, all they have to say, “I am depressed,” “I am stressed,” or “I have pain.” And again, voila, the medicine is dispensed. Some doctors even go as far as to have their own in-house medication vending machine (in-house pharmacy), so the patient does not have to drive to the pharmacy before they are satisfied.

Even if medical doctors identify one’s diet is probably contributing to their health problems, they are barred from the American Medical Association from giving nutritional advice (AMA), and if they do the AMA will shut them down [3]. This is because they do not know the right things to say because medical doctors are not trained in natural medicine or nutritional advice. Yet, medical doctors have the authority and permission to prescribe and throw drugs at symptoms caused by deep-rooted sickness and gaping vitamin deficiencies caused by an individual's poor lifestyle, which is high in processed and junk foods, probably from vending machines.

Thus, because of the doctor’s willingness to prescribe, prescribe, prescribe, to patients who continuously want another vending, we have the creation of chronic sick care or symptom management. Chronic sick care exists because instead of identifying and correcting the root cause of the issue and telling the patient they need to change their lifestyle, doctors will continuously prescribe drugs. Conventional medicine as hurt Americans so much that prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in America, even when taken as directed [5].

Why even have medical doctors? Have you ever really talked to one? Unless you belong to a small, family clinic, then probably not.

Usually, when the doctor enters the room, he or she will ask one or two questions, and as the patient begins to complain about their problems, the doctor tends to make them stop talking by running the stethoscope over your body, checking the patient’s temperature, and blood pressure. Then they will write the patient's prescriptions for their problems, as requested, and then the patient is on their way, medicated.

Perhaps, the patient may even get to engage in a two-way, human dialogue as they mention specific drugs that they saw during television commercials.

With this whole patient-doctor interaction, why even have a human as the doctor? Why can’t it just be a vending machine? I mean, it would mostly be the same thing.

Also, just like junk food vending machines, these lab-made concoctions rarely, if ever, really heal anyone; they just cover-up and mask symptoms. Vending machines could quickly sell blood thinners, SSRIs, opiate-based painkillers, ADD and ADHD drugs, insulin, and even syringes of ineffective MMR vaccines [6].

This may seem far off, but medicine vending machines already exist in China [7], so it is only a matter of time before Big Pharma can lobby their way to implement these in America to further destroy citizen's health, all to make a quick buck or two.
