Maybe the American healthcare system isn’t broken due to wasteful spending, lack of competition, greed and inefficiencies. But rather, the money we’re spending is on treating diseases that could be prevented.
Even if we “fixed” our health care system so it ran more efficiently, we would still be spending nearly the same amount of money on treating chronic illnesses. The diseases I’m talking about include obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and many cancers which have been linked to our standard american diet.
How can the health care system be reformed when the government is subsidizing the treatment of Type 2 diabetes at the same time that it’s subsidizing the consumption of high fructose corn syrup?
It’s time to reform our food industry.
