"Sick Care" America Resorts to Borrowing Money to Pay for Disease

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) America has crossed a new, disturbing threshold with the announcement that Obama's new health care plan will borrow money to pay for health care. In real terms, this means that sickness and disease in America will now be financed on credit.

This is a new "disturbing threshold" because it signals the beginning of a monumental mistake: The borrowing of money to invest in disease rather than health.

None of this borrowed money, you see, will actually go to teach people about the natural medicines found in fresh foods. Nor will it set free the knowledge about medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements that the FDA has fought so hard to suppress. No, this money will be used for one thing: To mortgage America's future for the benefit of the drug companies while the health of the people deteriorates even further.

Going broke to pay for disease

Borrowing money to invest in real health might be justifiable, but borrowing money to pay for yet more "disease maintenance" (with huge payouts to Big Pharma and conventional medicine drug pushers) is idiotic. But then, America has lost all touch with reality on financial issues. What's another trillion dollars thrown down the drain on disease, anyway?

It's not just America that's going broke from disease, either: The UK's NHS service is "bleeding to death" for all the same reasons (

The truth is, there's not enough money in the whole world to pay for the ongoing costs of keeping the population diseased. This whole global scam of censoring information about nutrition, promoting junk foods and toxic personal care products, then making money by selling them patented pharmaceuticals is quickly coming to an end. It is simply not sustainable.

Every nation that bases its "health care" philosophy on pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy and surgery while censoring truthful information about natural remedies will eventually go broke.

Investing in disease only leads to financial failure

There is simply no way around it: Disease is expensive. And while it may appear to stimulate the economy by causing money to change hands, in reality it destroys productivity, longevity and happiness while sending families, states and nations careening towards utter financial destruction. For every dollar spent on disease, a nickel could be spent preventing disease instead. We could slash our health care costs by 90 percent if we simply shifted our health care priorities to education and natural remedies instead of promoting ignorance and chemicals.

But you don't have to believe me. Just watch the USA and the UK -- both are approaching complete financial collapse due, in large part, to the unrelenting burden of costs associated with paying for disease (while censoring natural health remedies).

Western medicine, in essence, will destroy any nation that dares adopt it.

Take a look around the planet: Virtually all the countries with no debt are those countries that still use natural remedies and haven't sold out to western medicine. At the same time, all the countries nearing bankruptcy are those who have allowed western medicine to dominate their health care systems. Is this a coincidence? Of course not. Western medicine destroys both the health and the economies of nations.

Placing the corporations above the people

It is now quite clear that there will be no rational effort to save America from its self-inflicted health-related bankruptcy. Rather than saving America's future by teaching people how to be healthy, our national leaders are focusing their efforts on saving the profit margins for all the corporations that keep us sick: Food companies, drug companies, personal care product manufacturers and all the other various organizations that profit from disease.

Solutions exists for saving America's sick-care system from total demise: Over 20,000 people have already signed the Health Revolution Petition (, which outlines a simple, low-cost and innovation solution for eliminating disease and saving literally trillions of dollars over the next couple of decades.

It's like I said: There's not enough money in the world to pay for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and all the other diseases caused by processed foods and synthetic chemicals found in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and consumer products. The only way to prevent the financial ruin of a nation is to stop poisoning the people and start openly teaching natural health habits. You can read more important ideas in the Health Revolution Petition:

Monsanto, Proctor and Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly, McDonald's, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Dean Foods, Tyson Foods, Walgreens, Wal-Mart... do you know what all these powerful corporations have in common? They all make money from the selling of products that demonstrably harm human health. And yet, mysteriously, these are the very same organizations being protected by our representatives in Washington.

In protecting the financial interests of these corporations, our national leaders are driving our nation head-first into the dirt. To boost a corporation's profits for the next fiscal quarter, they will sell out the future of an entire nation.
