from natural news: What do you get when you combine fast food with Big Pharma? Pharmaburger! That's the name of episode one of the new "Food Investigations" mini-documentary series created by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com.
Food Investigations features short documentary videos (under 10 minutes each) exposing little-known facts about fast food and processed food products. The videos are free to watch at the website, and they're also available at www.NaturalNews.TV where thousands of other holistic health videos can be viewed for free every day.
The Pharmaburger mini-documentary takes issue with the doctor from Imperial College London whose study, published in the American Journal of Cardiology, led him to recommend that statin drugs be handed out like ketchup packets at fast food restaurants. This, he claims, would "counteract" the heart risk dangers of fast foods.
Just pop a pill every time you chow down a junk food cheeseburger, in other words, and the health risks will be canceled out. It's a juvenile, short-sighted point of view about health and nutrition, of course, but the idea has a surprisingly large number of followers among practitioners of mainstream medicine (many of which are arguably illiterate when it comes to nutrition in the first place).
