Health care dictatorship: A crime against America
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) It's amazing that the day before the health care "reform" bill is passed in America, the FDA announces that one of the most popular statin drugs sold in America causes so much kidney damage that it might kill you. And then the day after this health care bill passes, the FDA announces that a popular rotovirus vaccine made by Merck is being halted because it is contaminated with a mysterious DNA sequence from a pig virus called porcine circovirus type 1 or PCV-1.
The reason this is important is because cholesterol drugs and vaccines represent what conventional American medicine is all about: Drugs and injections. It's not about health and prevention; it's about drugs and injections (and surgery too, of course).
And the legislation that was just passed is focused entirely on how to expand the failed system of drugs and injections so that it causes harm to everyone rather than just those who voluntarily choose to be suckered into it. This is the medical equivalent of a wartime draft that forces soldiers into battle against their will. Except this isn't a war against some foreign enemy -- it's a war being waged against your body by the pharmaceutical industry, the cancer industry, the surgery pushers and all the corporations that prey upon the public for their sick-care profits.
What Dr. Julian Whitaker had to say about itI was sitting in the office of Dr. Julian Whitaker in Newport Beach, California this morning at the Whitaker Wellness Center (www.WhitakerWellness.com), chatting about this health care legislation. Needless to say, he was fuming about it, and we decided to record a quick video featuring some of his comments.
I'll be sharing that video soon on NaturalNews, but the upshot of it is that Dr. Whitaker is extremely concerned about the government taking over health care and interfering in the all-important doctor-patient relationship. He's also quite rightly convinced that this new legislation is going to result in tens of trillions of dollars in new sick-care cost burdens that stand to financially devastate the national economy as they rise to 30% or even 40% of GNP over the next several years.
Dr. Whitaker is the kind of "alternative medicine" doctor whose medicine should be mainstream. If all the diabetes, heart disease and cancer patients across the country were given the kind of nutritional advice espoused at the Whitaker Wellness Center, we could actually save our nation from sick-care bankruptcy by greatly reducing health care costs across the board. Use of pharmaceuticals would plummet, and many medically useless surgeries such as coronary bypass surgery would simply be abandoned.
The epidemic of vitamin D deficiency in AmericaThe Whitaker Wellness Center tests nearly every patient for their vitamin D levels, by the way. And guess what they find? I was talking with the Whitaker Wellness lab technician this morning and found that roughly 95% of new patients have deficient vitamin D levels. (They are then prescribed very high levels of supplementary vitamin D until they get back up to "normal" levels, of course.)
Most hospitals in America -- and most doctors practicing medicine -- don't even test for vitamin D levels. That's why there is an unseen epidemic of vitamin D deficiency in America today. This epidemic, by the way, is responsible for probably 80% of all cancers, at least a third of heart disease, perhaps a quarter or all diabetes cases, and countless cases of osteoporosis, depression, psychosis and kidney disorders.
So why don't mainstream doctors test for vitamin D levels? Here's the shocking but uncensored answer that medicine just doesn't want to hear: Because doctors are nutritionally illiterate. They are so lost in their drugs, surgeries, poison chemotherapy treatments and ballooning egos that they have forgotten the simplest and most powerful elements of health and healing: Nutrients.
So while America wastes trillions of dollars every decade on treating cancer, diabetes, heart disease and depression, a significant portion of all those diseases could be cheaply, safely and readily prevented with a dime a day of vitamin D supplementation. It's the smartest investment you can probably make in the health outcome of any population.
This is relevant because vitamin D isn't even mentioned in the new health care legislation. It's as if the vitamin didn't even exist! Washington is preoccupied with only this thought: Who will pay for all the disease? And yet nobody has the brains (or the balls) to ask the far more important question: How can we make people healthier and prevent disease in the first place?
Why did the U.S. government mandate seatbelts in automobiles to save lives, but it won't even acknowledge the desperate need for vitamin D supplementation to save lives?
A crime against AmericaIt's disgusting, really, to realize that the answers to America's health care crisis are so simple, so affordable, so obvious and so readily available... and yet our lawmakers remain stuck in a disease-and-bankruptcy mentality, making the problem worse while our fellow Americans suffer and die from preventable disease.
How is this not a crime against America? To suppress health truth while our brothers and sisters die from diseases that we know could be prevented is simply inexcusable. This status quo cannot be allowed to stand. The cost in human lives and suffering is beyond what our nation can bear.
I'm afraid -- but totally serious -- that the best thing that can happen right now for America is for all the old guard drugs-and-surgery doctors and health officials to go get vaccinated and die as quickly as possible so that the younger, more integrative physicians can get into positions of authority and start to make a positive difference. It's time for a revolution in medicine, and that revolution is never going to happen as long as the very people who defend the current medical mafia remain in power.
Scientific revolutions are often brought about only by the passing away of those who resist progress, and the same is true in medicine. We've been stuck in the germ theory of medicine for at least a century, and the AMA has worked diligently to suppress natural healing therapies during those hundred years. But now something has to change. And it will change.
Medicine is brokenThe results of our broken sick-care system speak for themselves: America has the fattest, most diseased and most medically-bankrupt population in the world. That's not an exaggeration, it's a statistical fact. Western medicine does not work.
The cancer industry is a dismal failure and it actually causes more cancers than it prevents. Vaccines are a joke: Vitamin D has been scientifically proven to work over 600% more effectively at preventing the flu in children, for example, than a vaccine shot. (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/sco...)
Figuring out who pays for sickness is not health care reform. Real reform can only come from promoting health and nutrition, period.
I'll argue this point with any doctor from any medical school anywhere in the world: My vitamin D works better than your vaccine! My nutrition works better than your poison. Preventing disease costs a small fraction of the expense required to treat disease that is allowed to develop.
Why is this commonsense idea totally rejected in Congress and the White House? Why has the idea of universal health care coverage devolved into an expansion of the medical mafia who only seek to keep our people diseased and trapped in a medical system that will bleed them of their hard-earned dollars?
Thank goodness several states are already planning to fight this. Florida is one of them:
"The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state's sovereignty," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum today. "On behalf of the State of Florida and of the Attorneys General from South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota, South Dakota and Alabama if the President signs this bill into law, we will file a lawsuit to protect the rights and the interests of American citizens."
I'll be talking about this more when I'm speaking live at the Health Freedom Expo this weekend in Long Beach, California, by the way. I'll be covering this topic in more detail. You can get tickets for the entire event (which includes my presentation) at www.HealthFreedomExpo.com
Hope to see you there!
