At what point does the human body need so much help from plasticized tablets and pills that it can't carry out the most basic of its functional needs without paying up to $100.00 daily for man made JUNK to keep it on track...when in fact, we're tearing the body down with the ingestion of these chemicals. So please think long and hard on the benefits of getting off these drugs as soon as possible.

that same question but this time with a WHOLE BAG OF PILLS. Because the reality of the situation is that elderly Americans for the most part are on a heckuva lot more than just 4 pills a day. So your regimen pales in comparison to what your counterparts 50 years older are taking. Nursing Home patients on average are taking 12-17 prescription medications daily and all are "NECESSARY!" Really??

Maybe Mother Nature suspected that you may become more complacent and "comfortable" with the answer of an EXPERT telling you that essentially you'll be fine...keep taking those pills and live long and prosper. But Mother Nature knows you. She's worried that if you were to feel good about that answer that soon there could be another pill & another & another & before you know it you'll be asking
