    Much of our medical industrial complex is geared towards making profits for hospitals, pharma corps, and surgeons (to name a few) at the expense of actual healing.  The system is corrupt (see, for example, the recent study in Nature in which 47 out of 53 key drug studies could not be independently replicated) and now we are being forced to buy into it.

    My solution had been accident insurance - $50/month -  to cover unforseen trauma, which western medicine is actually pretty good at treating.  Chronic disease, forget it.  They don't even know how to properly treat thyroid problems.
