Your Nutrition Prescription Podcast


Nov 26, 2018

After a long break from publishing episodes it is GREAT TO BE BACK with a lengthy and important episode.

Today on the show we discuss Five Shocking Truths about Healthcare in the US.

I want to warn you ahead of time, some of what we cover in this episode is going to disturb you. 

in this episode we discuss: 

  • How the current healthcare system is bankrupting our country
  • Why 1/3 of healthcare spending is WASTED 
  • How 1 million women who would have never developed symptoms have been treated for breast cancer 
  • The $25,000 surgery that is performed on over 1/2 a million people that might be no better than walking...
  • How the pharmaceutical industry uses clever marketing and doctor "education" campaigns to turn you into a lifelong customer
  • How pharmaceutical companies get away with price gouging consumers and charging 2-10x as much in the US as other countries for the SAME EXACT medication
  • What you can do to take action and protect yourself and your family

and more...

This episode is packed with statistics that are so far fetched some of them sound made up. 

Truth be told, I only covered a tiny sprinkling of the plethora of similar data showing that the standard of care in the US is harming people and missing so many obvious opportunities to use safer alternatives and promote true prevention.
