Excellent Comments and a Good Read

and from an astute commentator, or two -

Death rates fall when doctors strike

from Mirdza Hayden on courtesy Jeff Rense

"There are only four times in recorded history that the death rate actually fell. The first was in highly technologically developed Israel in 1973. During a one-month physicians' strike, the national death-rate reached the lowest rate ever. According to statistics by the Jerusalem Burial Society, the number of funerals dropped by almost half.

The same thing happened again in 1976 in Bogota, the capital city of Colombia. There, the doctors went on strike for 52 days. The death rate fell by 35% (National Catholic Reporter and confirmed by the National Morticians Association of Colombia).

Similar events happened in California a few years later, and in the United Kingdom in 1978 (see "Confessions of a Medical Heretic", by Robert Mendelsohn, MD)."

So, does in not stand to reason to find others ways to stay healthy, other than using allopathic doctors and getting prescriptions filled?

Think about it...

Mendelsohn's book is worth reading if you want to know the workings of modern mainstream Western medicine.
