Fat pills? You bet. They’re called antibiotics and they don’t work.
Except to make you fat.
They don’t work for your cold – and they’ve stopped working for more serious stuff too.
So if you’re dying from some superbug illness, the Doc can’t help you.
Miracle drug failure
They’ll make you plenty big though, without even trying.
Because that’s what they do on the farm – fatten up animals big and fast, for a quick buck on the market. Which is why it happens to you. You eat them, you get fat too. Very.
Which is why two-thirds of us are already overweight and the rest are following.
Don’t believe it? We’ve already got ourselves a Size 26 supermodel – and she’s not the only one.
And because so many of these same pills get shovelled into so many farm animals, the bugs they’re used against have become resistant. They are immune. However many you take, nothing happens.
Except you get fatter.
Which is why the powers that be want to restrict use of non-medical antibiotics, or get them banned altogether. The few antibiotics we do have left that work will be overwhelmed otherwise – total collapse of the modern medical system.
Of course, across the EU, antibiotics are banned as growth promoters – have been since 2006. Still allowed for health reasons though. Which with animals farmed intensively 2,000 or 3,000 together in tight spaces and nowhere to exercise or escape their own dung, becomes vitally necessary.
Which also explains why world use of antibiotics is currently around 240,000 tonnes – and set to grow 70% by 2030.
Better believe it, we’re going to get even fatter. With all those one-way disorders to look forward to that being overweight brings – diabetes, cancer, heart disease, asthma. Slow, debilitating illnesses that take years to claim you.
So it’s not just that antibiotics don’t work any more.
They’re actually going to kill you.
