Let Me Ask You a Question – 12/18/18

Do you buy the conspiracy theory that the medical industry doesn’t really want people healthy because healthy people means less revenue for them?

  1. There are some parts of the health care industry I could suspect of such a predatory way of thinking, but if so, they are responding to a larger system rife with perverse incentives. And, palliatives are much less work to produce than cures – path of least resistance. So, do we have health care or sickness care?

  2. Yes, I do. Hospitals and pharmaceutical companies are BIG business today. If people are healthy and don’t visit hospitals and doctors and/or buy their drugs and medications, then these will both lose out on BILLIONS of $$$$$$. You can see this on how the doctors aren’t really allowed to focus on getting to know their patients any more, but rather have them on an assembly line procession.

  3. I definitely believe this. A lot of the ‘credible’ research out there has been supported and funded by the pharmaceutical companies themselves, and much of it conflicts with the work of independent scientists from all over the world.

    The field of U.S. cancer care is organized around a medical monopoly that ensures a continuous flow of money to the pharmaceutical companies, medical technology firms, research institutes, and government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and quasi-public organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACS). – Ralph Moss, Ph.D., quoted by John Diamond, M.D., & Lee Cowden, M.D. in Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide to Cancer

  4. The pharmaceutical industry is definitely driven by profits and not health. They repress health and healthy cures that are already known, due to their not earning a profit. The cancer industry is definitely profit driven. There are many drugs that only treat symptoms and have horrible side effects. The drug companies definitely are not interested in health! They try to stop the voice of those with alternative more healthy things.

  5. I don’t know about the “Medical Industry” I am not on much in the way of medication so I can’t comment on that. But I believe that the medical profession, doctors, specialists, surgeons, and all others related to treating people do want us to be healthy. That has been my experience. If it were not true I would be dead at least twice over by now.

  6. The pharamoceutical industry, private health funds and private hospitals are all in the business of making money. I do not believe that doctors really don’t want healthy people. I have been in hosptal four times this year for cardiac related issues and also cancer, the doctors and nurses did everything they could to make me well and healthy.
