Healthcare

Is it something that everyone should have access to? Yes, but not in its current form. In its current form, it’s largely ineffective. 

Why is it okay to abuse our bodies by ingesting chemicals and food like products until we’re sick? Why should this behavior be subsidized by other people on insurance plans or even by force via taxation?

The problem isn’t healthcare, it’s that we don’t care. We call critics shamers and whistleblowers conspiracy theorists. While preventable deaths outnumber murders by at least ten to one, which do we focus on? 

People say that it’s their choice when it comes to food but have no problem with people being caged for narcotics. I’ve already explained how sugar is a drug. Heart disease kills 600,000 Americans a year. Cocaine kills 14,000. 

As long as healthcare means pills and not lifestyle alterations, what are we really doing?
