Health Ranger - 'Health Care only cares about profit'

“In the United States,” says Mike Adams, “we have a monopolistic health care system that is designed to generate profits, not public health.”

Adams, the editor-in-chief of NaturalNews.com, says that much of America is driven to believe that they need drugs, and with a monopolistic health care system unlike any other in the world, it isn’t the wellbeing of their clients that health care systems are looking out for, he says, but the corporations’ bank accounts.

In America, says Adams, people are trapped in a system of dependence on disease treatment. “The system doesn’t really have the motivation to teach people how to be healthy,” but rather rely on unnecessary — yet costly — medication.

“Other countries are more open to generic drugs, which tend to lower the cost of conventional health care,” says Adams, and while nations abroad might be more willing to encourage alternative methods of treatment, American advertisements insist that the country is in need of prescription pills — and as a result the clients of health care systems have an insatiable craving for medication.

This isn’t necessary, though, attests Adams. Instead, he says, it’s “a clear example of corporations really betraying the public interest just so they can make more money.”

“The US has mastered that art it seems in the drug industry.”

Drugs are prescribed 50 percent more in America than elsewhere, and children are three times more likely to be given antidepressants than European nations. “People think they need a drug to control every aspect of their experience,” says Adams. And antidepressants? “Feeling sad from time to time is not a disease,” he says. “It’s a human emotion.”

Advertisers can convince a lot of people that they are sick, says Adams, and the statistics show that he is certainly right. Don’t let the name “health care” fool you. The only thing these corporations care about is your money.
