Your Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

leave a comment »

A parody to explain most cancer scenarios.

A person has a small lump on a toe.

Goes to the doctor.

Doctor says do a biopsy to be sure but it is probably cancer.

Biopsy comes back:  cancer.

Treatment begins.

Radiation to foot and lower leg.

Hundreds of chemotherapy pills.

Then, surgery.

Surgeon removes foot and part of lower leg.

Patient asks: why not just take the tumor?

Doctor says:  wanted to be sure all of the cancer was removed.

Person had an athletic lifestyle; now hobbles around on crutches or uses a wheelchair.

Person becomes depressed, has huge weight gain, develops other serious health issues, soon dies.

Death came calling 40 years before the person’s time.

Sad.

But here is the real killer:  the patient did NOT have cancer.

All that was necessary was to have the tiny tumor removed.

Some or all of this scenario is true in ALL cancer cases.

Why?

Incompetent and/or corrupt doctors.

Too evil to put the patient first.

Fake Opioid Crisis

leave a comment »

Yes, too many people take too many opioid drugs.

But, THERE IS NO CRISIS!

It is not a health issue/problem.

These people have a character flaw.

Or for the less educated: they lack moral fiber.

These people are weak.

These people are inferior.

All addictions are character flaws; every last one.

None are medical conditions.

The only solution is for these people to just stop the addictive behavior.

They do not need medical treatment.

Nor should any treatment be covered by any medical insurance.

Covering any treatments by medical insurance shifts the cost of their behavior problems to others:  YOU.

These lowquals must be forced to take responsibility for their own character deficiencies.

Health Care Costs Crushing Your Health

leave a comment »

Health care costs are sky-rocketing:  health insurance premiums, the copays and the deductibles.

Each year, those costs go up and far faster than any potential increases in your income.

Health care in America is eating up larger chunks of your income, forcing you to more often skip those doctor visits or postpone needed medical treatment.

And forget about wellness visits.

What are you going to do?

Nothing.

Except watch your health deteriorate day by day.

Then die, hopefully not in agony.

OR

Take responsibility for your health.

But you will not.

Why?

Too lazy, and too ignorant.

Too proud with a big ego to ask for help.

Sad.

Real Sad.

Health Care System In Shambles

leave a comment »

Your health care system is a total failure.

People could live much healthier and longer lives.

The United States spend twice as much per person on health care than any other nation.

Yet, The United States ranks about 40th in quality of health care.

And, there is no “care” in the health care system.

Fewer doctors, less quality doctors, longer waits for an appointment.

Limited coverage by insurance programs.

More and more Americans are going on “health care” vacations; lower costs and better medicine in other nations(even without insurance).

The health care is now a battle between government regulation and the health care system money machine.

Patients are sheared like sheep and then slaughtered.

Government is part of the cause; it is not going to solve the problem.

Solution guidelines:

—  the problem can be solved

—  people need to stop relying on government

—  individuals must take responsibility for their health and the health care system

—  individuals are too lazy and incompetent to do what is necessary

—  assistance is available

It is your life.

What are you going to do?

Patients Without Control of Payments

leave a comment »

You go to your doctor.

The doctor submits his bill.

The insurance company, medicare and/or medicaid pays the bill.

You may pay a deductible or co-pay.

Patients have little or no control of the payment process.

Why?

Because the system is about the medical industry easily making as much money as possible not about your health.

If your health was important, you would control payments.

Any medical provider who did not do his job, you could dock his payment accordingly.

If the provider refused to see you again, all future payments to the provider would automatically be cut by 10%.

The medical provider would have to satisfy the patient just like any other vendor of goods or services.

Doctors are not special except in extracting money.

More than half are under qualified.

Even more have no patient empathy.

Mediocre Life Expectancy in the United States

leave a comment »

According to the World Health Organization, the United States ranks 36th in life expectancy compared to other nations(as of 2012).

Costa Rica ranked higher.

People in the United States spend much more money on healthcare than the average person in any other country in the world …

Yet people in other developed nations all outlive them.

Why are people in the United States not living longer, despite all the money they spend on doctors, hospitals, and drugs?

Three factors:

—  health care costs are excessive in the United States

—  health and nutrition knowledge in the United States is WRONG

—  people refuse to take personal responsibility for their health

From agriculture to diet and medical treatments, the information and methods are not accurate/correct.

This means the quality of health in the United States is a lot less than it could be.

It is only going to get worse.

Politicians and government are responsible.

Doctors Telling u-bam-aCare Patients to Take a Hike

leave a comment »

There are no doctors accepting u-bam-aCare.

Results from various surveys:

—  individual called 30 doctors; none would take his plan

—  53% of those surveyed are going to cancel their plan as soon as they can

—  people are paying high premiums for plans they cannot use

Another government failure;  higher premiums but no health care.

Thank you, dummy u-bam-a.

This is the wave coming at you;  less health care, higher prices.

The government is NOT going to solve the health care crisis.

You better get involved or
