Saturday Night Live And Save Our Bones Partner Up
A Saturday Night Live writer may be part of the Save Our Bones community. Here’s why I’m saying this. I’ve always been a big fan of Saturday Night Live, especially the older seasons. I remember watching John Belushi and laughing until my throat hurt.
This past Saturday was no exception. I watched Saturday Night Live player, Abby Elliott, perform a skit strikingly similar to an article I wrote a few weeks before. It’s a brilliant and accurate spoof of Sally Field as a scaremonger for Big Pharma.
Watch it here:
The Saturday Night Live spoof picks up on an increasingly obvious strategy applied by the makers of osteoporosis drugs. You see, the pharmaceutical giants unabashedly use scare tactics on women to convince them to take the osteoporosis drugs. They portray us as fragile beings that need to take synthetic drugs to prevent deadly fractures.
And here’s the big question: if these drugs were to give good results without any terrible side-effects, wouldn’t it be enough to have doctors prescribe them? Why do they need to spend millions to prey on their potential customers using scare tactics?
The answer is quite simple: as I’ve reported numerous times on this website and in the Save Our Bones Program, these drugs can actually do more harm than good.
But fortunately, the osteoporosis world is changing. And you can see it in the media. As time goes by, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the mainstream medical establishment to sweep the truth about osteoporosis under the rug.
Indeed, these are exciting times for us because we are witnessing – albeit at a slow pace – how it is impossible to repress the truth. I’ll have more for you soon on how the media is slowly beginning to catch up to us in the Save Our Bones Community.
