health care ?

"If we could give every individual the right amount of
nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too
much, we would have found the safest way to health.

Misdiagnosis in America: Shocking Statistics

Before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care

"The American medical establishment is disease-oriented
as there is not a penny to be made in health." - Bob Livingston

"If there is an extremely expensive, minimally-beneficial treatment
for a common problem, American medicine will find it." - B. Mull

"The equivalent of 390 jumbo jets full of people are dying each year due to likely preventable, in-hospital medical errors, making this one of the leading killers in the US." - Dr. Samantha Collier

"Americans waste billions each year on drugs of dubious value. Until we find a way to fund quality controls on published research, the cost of our medical care will continue to soar and our health will suffer." - Dr. John Abramson, clinical instructor Harvard Medical School

"Medicine is now a high risk industry, like aviation. But, the chance of dying in an aviation accident is one in 2 million, while the risk of dying from a medical accident is one in 200!" - Dr. Lucian Leape, of the Harvard Medical School

In 1984 a complaint is filed by a group of US physicians with the UN Center for Human Rights in Geneva, labeled "A Complaint Against Medical Tyranny As Practiced in the USA: American Medical Genocide".

"Each year in America there are:

12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;
7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;
20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;
80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;
106,000 deaths from FDA approved correctly prescribed medicines.
The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000."

Poor nutrition now affects a third of the human race

"Why is it we have finite resources for health care but unlimited money for war? Trillions for war and Wall Street, billions for insurance companies. When we were promised change, we weren't thinking that we give a dollar and get back two cents." - Dennis Kucinich 11/09

The health care industry fails to take into consideration the following critically important aspects of a healthy human organism:
insufficient exercise;
excessive caloric intake;
exposure to tens of thousands of environmental toxins;
highly processed foods grown in toxic chemically damaged soil;
adverse affects of stress on the immune system and life processes.

Iatrogenesis and iatrogenic artifact refer to inadvertent adverse effects or complications caused by or resulting from medical treatment or advice.

American Murder Asssociation

The American Medical Association strongly
opposes mandatory reporting of medical errors.

American College of Surgeons estimates that only from
5 to 30% of adverse events are reported in surgical incident reports.

Standard medical pharmacology texts admit that relatively few doctors
ever report adverse drug reactions to the Food and Drug Administration.

The American medical system is one of the leading causes of death and injury in America.

"Over a million patients are injured in US hospitals each year, and approximately 280,000 die annually as a result of these injuries. Therefore, the iatrogenic death rate dwarfs the annual automobile accident mortality rate of 45,000 and accounts for more deaths than all other accidents combined." - Journal of the American Medical Association 1995

"Peter Orszag, director of the Congressional Budget Office, estimates that 5% of the nation's gross domestic product - $700 billion per year - goes to tests and procedures that do not actually improve health outcomes."- Progressive Policy Institute (PPI)

The 10 biggest health care lies in America

Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973

1979 to 1987 The surgery rate in the US grows more than twice as fast as the population.

1999 to 2007 Expenditures for hospital care increases 90% from $462 billion to $873 billion.

2008 and 2009 Healthcare companies spend $635 million lobbying. 166 former congressional aides involved in shaping healthcare legislation register to lobby for healthcare companies.

"Healthy people aren't great customers. The money is in those in whom an abnormality can be found. The medical-industrial complex has made that relatively easy to do. It develops diagnostic technologies able to find smaller and smaller abnormalities.

The medical-industrial complex has another way to find more abnormalities: it simply narrows the definition of normal. Take blood pressure. In the past, relatively few were said to have abnormal blood pressure. Now a normal blood pressure is said to be below 120/80. This means that well over half the adult population of the US is abnormal.

The same is true for cholesterol. And although it involves a smaller portion of the population, narrower definitions of normal are expanding the number of people said to have diabetes and osteoporosis.

The new abnormalities being found are generally not severe, but mild: they are not life-threatening, and in many patients they won't ever produce symptoms. When the benefit of treatment is known, it is known to be small - so small that many people, sometimes hundreds, must be treated for one person to benefit.

What is known is that others are invariably harmed in the process. The medical-industrial complex has systematically exaggerated the benefits and minimized or ignored the harms. All of us harbor abnormalities. The construct drives the system to look for things to be wrong - a search that will be successful in most of us. We then feel more vulnerable.

This induced vulnerability undermines the very sense of well-being and resilience that in many ways defines health itself." - H. Gilbert Welch

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) list the following infectious diseases that can be acquired in healthcare facilities:

Acinetobacter, Burkholderia cepacia, Chickenpox (Varicella), Clostridium Difficile, Clostridium Sordellii, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), Ebola (Viral Hemorrhagic Fever), Gastrointestinal (GI) Infections, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, Influenza, MRSA - Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, Mumps, Norovirus, Parvovirus, Polio, Pneumonia, Rubella, SARS, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, VISA - Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VRE - Vancomycin-resistant enterococci

Healthcare-associated infections account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 98,987 associated deaths each year, healthcare-associated infections in US hospitals were : of these, 35,967 were for pneumonia, 30,665 for bloodstream infections, 13,088 for urinary tract infections, 8,205 for surgical site infections, and 11,062 for infections of other sites.

internist and rheumatologist respondents agree on placebo treatments:

679 physicians (57%) responded to the survey. About half of the surveyed internists and rheumatologists reported prescribing placebo treatments on a regular basis (46-58%, depending on how the question was phrased). Most physicians (62%) believed the practice to be ethically permissible. Few reported using saline (3%) or sugar pills ( 2%) as placebo treatments, while large proportions reported using over the counter analgesics (41%) and vitamins (38%) as placebo treatments within the past year. A small but notable proportion of physicians reported using antibiotics (13%) and sedatives (13%) as placebo treatments during the same period. Furthermore, physicians who use placebo treatments most commonly describe them to patients as a potentially beneficial medicine or treatment not typically used for their condition (68%); only rarely do they explicitly describe them as placebos (5%).

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
