The Reactionary Disease-care (NOT Health-care) Debacle!

What a debacle! Do check out this well written article “Beyond the Obamacare debate — why does health care cost so much?”
In my view, healthcare costs so much because it is a broken, reactionary system that focuses on disease-care rather than prevention. Further, the fact that interested business plays a prominent role in standard of care medicine is disturbing.
The majority of morbidity, or disease, simply need not exist. They are driven by diet and lifestyle.
Interested business also plays a prominent role in our food supply. This is even more concerning than their role in healthcare. I say this because with a healthful diet and lifestyle, the need for disease-care would basically go away.
Eat Superfoods: plant-based, calorie-sparse, nutrient-rich, health-empowering foods and practice the Secrets of Long Life as our longest-lived elders the world over demonstrate! This is the answer.
Another thought for a subsequent blogpost, a significant portion of “healthcare” expenditures are amassed the first few minutes of life and the last few minutes of life. These are natural processes in our lifecycle NOT in need of such extensive and expensive intervention. Interested business continues to “tax” our entrance and exit from this world.
