Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Healthcare is hell. The more we get, the worse we feel. Sadly, doctors don’t know that trusted toxins and addictions are common, covert causes of sickness. So healthcare is a vicious cycle of toxins, addictions, and sickness, in which doctors first overlook the toxic, addictive causes of sickness, and then prescribe toxic, addictive drugs. I call this pervasive vicious cycle the “Toxic Craving Cycle”, since craving reflects addiction. Sadly, healthcare makes us sick, by burying us under layers of trusted toxins (vaccines, antibiotics, statins, psychotropics, chemotherapy) and addictions (sugar, chocolate, vanilla, caffeine, cola). To quote GB Shaw, "Science never solves one problem without creating ten more."
