Wealth is migrating out of other industries and into our medical industry. Medical rationing has killed millions of Americans. Jobs are migrating to other countries with better health care (US at far right of graph). Click links for references.
United States medical care causes more than 100,000 additional deaths every year compared with other countries. Documents like the following have been used to improve medical care in those other countries by adopting a national health care solution.
We the people of the United States, in order to ... promote the general welfare ... do ordain and establish this Constitution ...
Hyperinflation has boosted physician income 1,000% faster than average income since 1962. $1 of every $6 goes to medical care. That will double by 2035. Medical expenses will exceed average income by 2045. The resulting higher payroll costs are killing people and forcing jobs out of the country.
Physicians, like Ron Paul, are using the tea party to prevent any changes.
Our modern concept of medical care began with Medicare Insurance in 1965 under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act of the Social Security Act of 1935. Together with the Federal Unemployment Tax Act of 1935, this prevents widespread homelessness due to bankruptcy.
Americans under 65 must purchase medical insurance to avoid bankruptcy court. The Affordable Care Act of 2009 postponed our financial collapse a few years.
How did that happen?
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently reversed a long-standing anti-vitamin stance by publishing two scientific review articles recommending multivitamin supplements for all adults (2003).
These problems are being caused by FDA food industry regulation by physicians that lack the qualification necessary to manage the food industry.
It is impossible to estimate the number of deaths caused by physicians despite the fact that fatal illnesses have been known to be caused by nutrient destruction and removal during food processing used to make flower, bread, pasta, rice, bread, dairy, sugar, ....
Physicians are self-regulating, and state medical boards drove up physician income by creating an artificial shortage.
Average American income increased 0.5% per year during the same period while physician income increased over 5% per year. 90% of your money is being siphoned off into physicians pockets.
That is sucking money out of critical industries like technology and manufacturing, which is driving jobs out of the country.
Over half of our medical costs now go to physicians and hospitals and not lifesaving devices and medication.
The McCarran–Ferguson Act of 1945 gave the FDA law enforcement power equivalent to the FBI.
Armed response is used to sieze property not approved by the FDA. 15 year delays costing over $1 billion for FDA approval are common.
An example of how the FDA creates monopolies involves prescription drugs. Plaquenil was developed in 1820 from the tree bark we use to make tonic water. The FDA maintains a monopoly on this drug after 200 years of safe use. The FDA was created by the Food and Drugs Act in 1906, and it did not approve plaquenil until 1955 - a 49 year delay for a 130 year old medication.
That only happens in the US.
Fatal infections must spread because no antibiotic purchase can take place without waiting for a $150 prescription despite the fact that test kits for bacterial infection are common and easy to obtain. You can spend $750 at the emergency room if you don't want to wait.
Antibiotics are legal in Europe.
In Europe, someone who gets an infection has a one in 122 chance of dying; in the United States, the probability jumps to one in seven. That means that Americans are approximately 17 times more likely to die from these presumably preventable diseases than their brethren in the developed nations of Europe.
Hospital-related infections costs the U.S. between $35 billion and $45 billion annually--a figure that could presumably be trimmed down substantially if America prevented deaths related to these infections at the rate Europe does.
The FDA first took steps to protect the public from fatal food-borne antibiotic resistant infections after a 50 year delay. That will presumably will introduce a requirement for animals with communicable diseases to congregate near one another in veterinary facilities.
A specific example may help.
About 20 million Americans have diseases related to foods. Less than 10% have a diagnosis. Lack of diagnosis causes cancer, heart disease, and mental illness because consuming wheat, barley, rye and oats is much worse than smoking for as much as 30% of the population.
Medical schools teach physicians to use endoscopic biopsy costing $20,000 to identify gluten sensitivity. Only 3% of the population can afford this and it will not work if you avoid grain (bread, pizza, crackers, ...).
Blood testing is 10 times less expensive and just as effective (if not more so).
