Health insurance premiums are driven by the success or failure of actual health recovery maintenance and the costs required to deliver service. Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D., of Washington, DC, and editor of the 8th edition of the HPUS, is an internationally renowned medical historian and author of over 30 books and essays, which include THE DIVIDED LEGACY, a four-volume epochal history of medicine, which covers its origins to present day.

“Society today is paying a heavy price in disease and death for the monopoly granted to the medical profession in the 1920s. The situation peculiarly resembles the 1830s when physicians relied on bloodletting, mercurial medicines, and quinine, even though they were known to be intrinsically harmful. And precisely the same arguments were made in defense of these medicines as are employed today, namely, that the benefits outweigh the

risks. In Truth, the benefits accrue to the physician, while the patient runs the risks.”-Harris Coulter, Ph.D., (Divided Legacy Vol 3). There is no question we need reform in disease elimination, improvements in Health, better delivery of health care when required, and health insurance parity. I am all for reform, but let those reforms ring with the clarity of Truth and illuminate our way through the fog of obfuscation.

Overall, chemotherapy and radiation are documented to be absolute failures in the so-called war against cancer. The long-term survival rate of cancer patients using orthodox therapies remains abysmal, and the statistical reportage is obfuscated. Refer to: New England Journal of Medicine, “Progress Against Cancer,” May 8, 1986, by John C. Bailar, III and Elaine M. Smith, and a ten-year follow-up “The War on Cancer,” which appeared in Lancet, May 18, 1996, by Michael B. Spoorn. Therein is published in leading medical journals, but they remain the only therapies and pharmaceutical companies that enjoy federal mandates.

Stated you cannot poison a sick person well.

HEALTH CARE REFORM is a meme used to numb the mind and sway the political process but has little or nothing to do with Health and certainly is neither reform in the ways the public perceives nor what they dearly need. Merely changing who and how much they profit from health services is only a small fraction of the underlying problem, and ultimately, it’s you who pays. Current Congressional debates will not offer true reform of our systemic disease CARE.

But strengthen insurance profits and control. The fruit of the healthcare tree, while certainly abundant, is altogether rotten because the roots are corrupted by disease. If the Food and Drug Administration, which regulates both FOOD and drugs while having far-reaching powers that are beyond the Constitution of the United States of America, is powerless to effectuate the genuine change required to modify the so-called health industry. Nor can the FDA provide

The reforms by its far-reaching power and control, then how can we expect it to come from mandates from an under-educated lobbied congress? Give credit where due; the FDA has been effective in causing millions of tonnes of ground meat and spinach. A little too late, perhaps, as the FDA has done nothing to stop chemical companies from pouring oceans of deadly toxic and known carcinogens on our crops. “Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans” ~ Jacques Cousteau.
