“The problem with vitamin D is it’s cheap and not patentable.” Dr. Robert Heaney in a recent interview with Dr. Joseph Mercola
Dr. Robert Heaney has delivered a half truth. The real truth: the problem is not how inexpensive vitamin D; it is about the population getting well and the healthcare economy collapsing. Vitamin D is the number one most important nutritional item for health and wellness as science has shown since the 1930s. The government now has funded the largest segment of the US economy from the economics of illness without empathy for the pain and suffering. You can call this what you like, but the proper terms are immorality and corruption. Our leaders have given themselves over to the payments by the health insurance/education/pharmacy/provider complex to maintain their positions in government and lavish life styles.
The proponents of vitamin D are now frustrated with their efforts over the last fifteen years. The frustration comes from all the medical evidence and science based medicine that is not being put into medical practice. Again, the reason is economics. It is not how inexpensive vitamin D; it is about all of the money flowing from less than science based treatments. Think about what was declared as settled science on nutrition and wellness in the 1970’s versus what we are now being told is healthy. Stay out of the sun – now sun is beneficial because of vitamin D and also what happens when we are exposed to full spectrum light; don’t eat saturated fats – now saturated fats are much better for us. I remember the study well, published by two time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, which said sugar drove cholesterol and not saturated fat (the study was done on prisoners for complete control, published in the early 70’s). So what are we to believe? An advancement in science or the lying cheating b*&t#$ are using our illness to fund their lavish life styles. I do get really excited when I think about this because I almost died in 2004. If not for my faith and my ability to reason through the medical science, sleep apnea and heart disease would have been my end.
This delusion has worked so well in the healthcare industry that the new idea was to move it to atmospheric science. The sky is falling and the polar bears are dying because there is global warming. What will happen when the real catastrophe shows up? All the false concern about polar bears is just unbelievable when thousands of people are needless suffering and dying because of the money. The climate was not cooperating with the lies of Gore and his likes so bring on Obama and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Patient protection and affordable – you’ve got to be kidding! Have we again given up freedom for security? When this insurance bubble collapses because health has returned, the economy will go down the toilet in a grand Coriolis swirl. I hear “da Boss Man” calling us to continue to live in a state of health slavery. There we are, caught in the scope of Kyle’s riffle as the enemy. Pickin’ it dup here boss!
Yes, healthcare is complex and our leaders have used this to “pull the wool over the eyes” of the ill. I remember the words of Congressman Howard Coble well when I went to meet him ten years ago. “You can’t just be accusing us of killing people because of our policies.” Yes, I am accusing you of killing people because of government policies to protect the economy. I am sure it is a tough decision to make, economy versus health. The tyranny of government to use the collections of the population to fund science and then to bury the findings in obfuscation is evil. So, says the politician, it does keep the economy going. Aren’t we grand? I think I am hearing the sounds of the Beatles singing Little Piggies from their White Album.
In their styes with all their backing
They don’t care what goes on around
In their eyes there’s something lacking
What they need’s a damn good whacking
Everywhere there’s lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon
(one more time…)
