Obamacare: Rationed Care, Rationed Doctors

Promises by the regime that patients could keep their doctor once transitioned to Obamacare have proven as false as the rest of the regime’s promises.

Obamacare has nothing to do with healthcare. It’s a big government boondoggle designed to transfer wealth, further enrich the medical-pharmaceutical-health insurance complex, limit choices and steal away medical freedom.

Study Shows Mammograms Don’t Affect Breast Cancer Mortality Rates

One in seven American women is currently suffering from breast cancer. The medical establishment pushes annual mammograms as the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer, with the idea that early detection reduces mortality. But a new study published in the British Medical Journal shows that annual mammograms do nothing to reduce mortality rates beyond that of “physical examination or usual care.”

In the study performed by Canadian researchers, 89,305 Canadian women aged 40-59 were enrolled and randomly assigned to one of two groups: one that receive mammograms and one that did not. During the study period that encompassed 25 years, 3,250 women receiving mammograms and 3,133 not receiving them were diagnosed with breast cancer. Of those 3,250 receiving mammograms, 500 died from breast cancer. Of those not receiving mammograms, 505 died from breast cancer.

Dangers Of Overmedicating With Antidepressants

Drugs like Prozac®, Celexa®, Lexapro® and Zoloft® are known as selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and have been prescribed not only for depression, but for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dementia, social anxiety, premenstrual syndrome and compulsions for gambling, shopping, overeating and sex. As of 2007, antidepressants are the most widely prescribed medications in America.

SSRIs are associated with varied side effects; and individual reactions have been reported, including mass shootings. This means one person can experience unpleasant effects, while another person may not respond in the same way. For this reason, SSRIs must be monitored closely by a physician or licensed therapist. Side effects include nausea, sexual dysfunction, migraine, diarrhea, drowsiness, insomnia, weight gain and increased agitation and restlessness.

Medical care in the U.S. for seniors appears to be in jeopardy and soon not even available at all for ages 75 and above. Even now, qualification for Medicare for any age may be means-tested. I believe that it may become illegal in the U.S. to hire private physician care outside of Medicare.

Flu Folly

Flu Folly

The CDC and the FDA are nothing more than taxpayer-funded marketing arms for the medical-industrial complex. They are used to provide government-sanctioned legitimacy to a host of fake “diseases” created in labs along with their cures: expensive pharmaceuticals and tests for diagnosis.

Should You Get The Shingles Vaccine?

Shingles is caused by a reactivation of dormant varicella zoster (chicken pox) virus. It is most common in older adults and people with immune systems weakened by stress, injury, medications or other reasons.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends the shingles vaccine “to reduce the risk of shingles and its associated pain in people 60 years old or older.” According to David Brownstein, M.D., the question of whether to have the shingles vaccine is one of the most asked by his patients.

A Pennsylvania nurse faced a choice: Accept a mandatory flu vaccine in order to comply with workplace policy, or decline the vaccine and be at ease that she wasn’t doing anything to endanger her pregnancy — after two previous miscarriages. She chose not to receive the vaccine, and she was fired.
