Half of the adult U.S. population is on prescription medications and that figure goes over 70% for the elderly. Something like 70% of the U.S. adult population is also overweight and/or obese.

The problem is, changing any of that kills the U.S. economy. There is a real systematic problem when the economy is dependent upon the population being fat and obese.

If you scroll down on the link below you can see that many medical conditions which require drugs are the result of nutritional deficiency. I would suspect that the list is far greater than this but the research has not been done and validated.

Vitamin D: The “sunshine” vitamin

An estimated 1 billion people worldwide, across all ethnicities and age groups, have a vitamin D deficiency (VDD).

Even the smallest amounts of such vitamins/minerals are said to restore zombie alligators and other zombie critters back to normal health. The world record for fasting is over one year of time, and that person wasn't deficient in any vitamins or minerals, though a couple were low but well above any sort of danger line.

Absolutely. People are very vitamin deficient these days. Healthcare doesn't promote vitamin supplements, in fact they've been working hard over the years trying to make them unavailable to the public. Vitamin deficiency causes a low immune system, which leads to many different ailments.

That's why I take a very good multivitamin every day for the last 30 years and have never been sick since. I take Personal Radical Shield - 336 Caps.

We subsidize the socialist countries.
They pay less and we pay more to cover the actual costs.

You yanks make me laugh.
You'll happily spend 600 billion a year on a socialised military to protect you from imaginary threats but the idea of a socialised healthcare system to protect your kids from leukaemia is considered a communist plot.

Lol.

It could be much worse like in the UK where universal socialised medicine costs 7% of GDP and people don't get a choice, they have to have access to treatment even it it costs tens of thousands and they have no money at all.

Crazy commies.

What is it with Americans complaining about treating humans like humans? Why do you think having access to life saving medical treatment if wrong?

The military has socialized healthcare.

Because it's more efficient that way, and cheaper.

Competition should be done this way:

OPENSOURCE STATE COMPETITION AND COOPERATION.

Oklahoma competes with Texas, and the loser gets to adopt the winner approach if they want to. Your billing works better than ours, how did you do that? HERE, let's see your nutrition programs...

But begin with the original New Deal principle with rural hospitals.

We have rural hospitals collapsing under the Nixon system, so they need funds apportioned to them.

Each state gets funded by county apportioned to them until each county has adequate building facilities to support the per capita demand.

To get the money you have to build hospitals and clinics and hold the real estate in trust for the citizens of that county.

Then you lease the space to clinician firms. Doctors nurses radiologists etc can combine any way they want to and have single practices as well.

Rent is COST plus maintainance and upgrades to equipment.

If you'r a doctor and lease space at the county hospital for your family practice, there's basic equipment with it and access to radiology etc as it is now.

The pharmacy delivers prescriptions at cost plus maintenance and upgrades,

And the general supply warehouse sells q tips and syringes AT COST.

That way your state can stock everything in all of them all at once on a bulk order and all the expendables like IV's are CHEAP.

You could have counties competing on these purchases as well, so you're not creating a monopoly bottleneck to one manufacturer.

Then medical professionals can compete on their services.

Our clinic offers a chef to teach you how to cook your meals at home.

Our nutritionist does biocellular analysis every checkup, finds your deficiencies and our toxicologist will assay metals and other poisons and survey your house.

Then you won't need our GP much.

Come here for any problem and we'll make sure you don't come back unless there's an accident.

chuckle

That's what we have to do to afford keeping our parents alive and not becoming slaves at the same time.

There is no such thing as sovereign debt. Reinstate Greenbacks.

Healthcare Spending Now Accounts For Almost One-Fifth Of The Entire U.S. Economy

https://governmentslaves.news/2017/11/08...s-economy/

Everybody agrees that healthcare costs are way too high. Back in 1960, healthcare spending accounted for approximately 5 percent of GDP, and by 2020 it is being projected that healthcare spending will account for 20 percent of GDP. And when you break those numbers down into actual dollars, they become even more staggering. Back in 1960, an average of $146 was spent on healthcare per person for the entire year, but today that number has skyrocketed to $9,990. On a per capita basis, we spend far more than anyone else in the world on healthcare. In fact, we spend almost twice as much as most other industrialized nations on a per capita basis. Something has gone terribly wrong, and we desperately need to get this fixed.

Back in 1960, you could buy a new car for $146.

No you couldn't. The average price of a new car in 1960 was $2,742 in the United States.

The simplest way to fix our healtcare system is open it up to market competition, that means removing and eliminating existing regulations on the market.

Right now health care providers do not have to publish any prices for procedures, medication, nothing. All other economic services must provide prices up front in a schedule or part of a contract but not medicine.

They formed all these corporations to become a cartel, the insurance company haggles with the medical provider for charges on a case by case basis. That's how you end up with price increases around 10% a year every year.

At that rate medical costs double every 7 years.

The best way to fix your health system is by having no competition at all. With only 1 healthcare provider who can negotiate the lowest price because there's no competition to buy drugs and hospital equipment. And that 1 healthcare provider should be your state or fed government. Yeah social commie crap. But with only 1 buyer the sellers can't dictate the prices. Which in turn gets you the lowest price your government can negotiate.
