"Obama-Care"

Health Care reform is doomed, because it only seeks to fund an unsustainable system of excessive testing, drugs and treatment of symptoms, while neglecting the root causes of disease (nutrition, stress, toxic environments, poverty, greed, etc.)

Ironically, President Obama himself has been victimized by this ideology: he recently had a physical with excessive testing (“The perils of excessive medical care,” J. Lancet 2011;377:1561.) He received 2 CT scans to screen for abdominal cancer and heart disease, even though cheaper and less toxic testing is available.

The good news for Democrats is that he is in excellent health.

The good news for Republicans is that he got the equivalent radiation people were exposed to when nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima.

Our nation will never have effective and economical health care until the entire health care deliver system is reformed from top to bottom. The real power brokers behind our failed health care are 1) Big Pharmacy (legalized toxic drug pushers), 2) FDA (marketing arm for Big Pharmacy),3) Medical Schools who teach disease management by toxic prescriptions; heaven forbid forget cure mask symptoms for increasing office visits which lead to poly pharmacy and huge profits 4) Our government (composed of career politicians whose major effort is the next election) who are the recepients of Big Pyarmacy MONEY. 5) Few medical schools require concentrated studies in nutrition as the first step in medical diagnosis for their patient. Most of the professional medical associations pay only lip service to good nutrition and down play the healing power of supplementing with natural vitamin, minerals and herbs especially when given in therapeutic levels. Linas Pauling took mega doses of vitamin C (18 grams per day; the RDA is given as 60 mg).The human body is a very remarkable being that has the ingrained ability to heal itself provided it receives a healthy diet, drinks good water, gets its rest. Unfortunately current medical practices diagnose for symptom, prescribe indicated toxic drug to mask symptom then move on to the next patient. Little time is given to what goes into the mouth. Junk in disease out. Good nutrition in good health out. Practically all prescription drugs are toxic to the human condition. One cannot pick a statin drug from the ground are from a tree. One can pick good food from the ground, trees, vines bushes. The entities referenced above haven't a clue as to why our health care is such a costly disaster. To think the alternative that they in fact do know and are in for the money makes me weep for our people and our nation.
