The State of Health in the US

SMMIt has become apparent to me over the last several decades that manipulation of health and life expectancy for economic purposes is real. I have thought for most of the last ten years that it was just incompetence on the part of doctors, failure by our government to properly manage their role, and lack of education on the part of the populace. Yes it is still some of all of these combined, however, it has become apparent that there is a real conspiracy happening. It is being carried out simply for the gain of politicians and their ilk as lifelong employees of government who believe by controlling your life; they are giving you a better America. We come together as a people to form government to help protect the interests of the population as a whole, not for the few. If government believes they are presently protecting it for the many, then we have a serious problem on our hands as thousands suffer needlessly and die at the wish of our politicians.

We live in the greatest country in the world and I love America. I am not discussing here the heart-felt efforts of the many physicians who have worked sacrificially to save lives from many forms of disease or the tireless work of researchers to develop treatments. I am speaking primarily to the people at the top of decision making of our institutions who have intentionally allowed death and suffering through their policies. Health and Human Services was even brave enough to state this policy as part of their nine principles of operation in the 2000s. Of the nine principles, markets before mandates, was number four, and to value life was number nine, the last.

Politicians and large institutions, (health insurers are the worst of the worst as they profit from your suffering and the more you suffer the better their sales, and only fifty cents of every dollar you give them comes back as payment to providers–but, believe the politicians, that they are growing our economy through manipulation of health insurance) are using the complexity of life and medicine to simply manipulate outcomes. The main tool of this obfuscation is to promote the use of patent medicine over the use of nutrition to allow the body to heal. Patent medicines are used simply to treat symptoms with the hope that the body will heal on its own. The only real exceptions to this are antibiotics and some vaccines. But now, even the vaccine market is being manipulated for higher sales. We use screening to find cancer earlier in its state of development and chemo and cutting for treatment to make the claim that we are giving increased life when our death rate from cancer has not declined at all. It is plain to see that the ones benefitting from this misdirection are not the patients and the payers of expensive research and treatments — you. Of course, if you are receiving income from the health sector, as one in five of every American, then you too are benefitting from this treachery.

The importance of economics over life started in the nineteenth century and became magnified in the twentieth century as patent medicines were held up as more important than nutrition for healing. This is certainly true for emergency medicine, but very damaging for treating chronic disease and the hope of a long life. Now, you will see many ads state that nutrients are not for treatment, diagnosis, or cure of any disease to stay within the confines of our politician’s laws. I suspect if medical practice was changed to use patent medicine for emergencies and nutrition for chronic disease, life expectancy would increase to over ninety years old. A good life to a ripe old age, your period of suffering would be very brief.

If a visit to the doctor for a chronic concern started with tests and diagnosis evolved around which nutrients your were most deficient, there would not be the need of almost any patent medicines. “Well let’s see Mr. Patient, it looks like you are not getting enough protein and balance of protein and fats so that you will heal. Also, you need more greens for folate to help generate stem cells and you need to spend more time in the sun for vitamin D. Also I have found several mineral deficiencies which can be corrected by changing your eating habits to allow for more variety. If you don’t want to change your eating habits, then I can simply write you a script for this combination of vitamins and minerals based on my testing to improve your health.” Sound weird? It is only because your mindset has been manipulated toward patent drugs.

The state of medicine, interwoven with economics, is now so complex and complicated; it will take an extreme effort to make the change.   Currently the most egregious actions are the hiding of research outcomes for vaccines that increase the rate of autism (the CDC admitted to this over eighteen months ago) and the serious error that was made for vitamin D RDI by the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) in 2010. Just these two things are causing significant suffering, causing thousands of deaths each day, and significantly impacting healthcare cost. And yet, no action has been taken. The press is conflicted over the loss of revenue if they report on the errors. What are you going to do about? – Pandemic Survivor

Memorial to Those Who Have Died From Vitamin D Deficiency

FF5r

There has been a huge amount of research that says we as a population of sun deprived people are dying of vitamin D deficiency. I am extremely sorry to the family members and survivors that have lived the grief of loss. My personal experience of loss is heart wrenching. As I researched for this article, I not only thought of the grief of the survivors, but also the pain and suffering from preventable disease that is caused by vitamin D deficiency. This is to say nothing of the economic loss of the sufferers and the economic gains of those caring for the suffering.

The Institute of Medicine (now the National Academy of Medicine, I think they changed their name because of shame) announced that the RDI for vitamin D was only 600 IU/d. Now, three different universities have confirmed a statistical error. The correct amount for the RDI should have been over 7,000 IU/d of vitamin D3. If we look at only the death, what has the result been?

If the epidemiologists are correct, then there are about 350,000 premature deaths from vitamin D deficiency in the US every year or about 1,000 deaths per day. This is like five plane crashes every day with 200 people on each plane. Since the National Academy of Medicine released its findings for vitamin D with the factor-of-over-10 error, there have been 1,697 days. This is from the release date of the information on November 30, 2010 until today, July 24, 2015. There have been 1,697,000 deaths during this period from vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency represents about 14% of total deaths in the US.

US population leading causes of death:

  • Number of deaths: 2,596,993
  • Death rate: 821.5 deaths per 100,000 population
  • Life expectancy: 78.8 years
  • Infant Mortality rate: 5.96 deaths per 1,000 live births

Number of deaths for leading causes of death:

  • Heart disease: 611,105
  • Cancer: 584,881
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 149,205
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 130,557
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 128,978
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 84,767
  • Diabetes: 75,578
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,979
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 47,112
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 41,149

Every day that government delays taking action means there are another one thousands deaths. The agony of the pain and suffering from the loss says that it is time for government to take action. Is the money sustaining our economy from the health sector more important than the lives of those who have died? Your government seems to think so. I am extremely sorry for your loss. – Pandemic Survivor.

My Heart Aches — Vitamin D vs. Measles Vaccine

There has been one death from measles since 2003, but how many deaths have there been because of poor nutrition since 2003 or just vitamin D deficiency alone? Relax, kick back, and consider the possibilities as you read.

Life Balance

My heart aches as I think of the thousands that are dying premature deaths. Preventable death, our medical profession says, is worth the money. In fact, many of the life-saving drugs have been only able to extend life by a few months, weeks, and even days, but has the death rate really decreased from chronic disease? Dying people are asked to make the decision. The decision usually is about spending the money in trade for a few days of “quality” life. What if the question was not about the money, but only if you have the proper nutrition. When offering a dying friend or relative nutrition, you get treated by the medical profession as if you are about to perform a criminal act. Your response to this onslaught is that your cared-for-loved one was just thirsty and you wanted to give them a class of water.

We have reached a breaking point in our understanding of life versus what is important for the greater good. Science and technology have moved along. Unfortunately, greed has remained the same in our culture forever. Knowledge of how to save life has been hidden and manipulated for the greater good as determined by our institutions. The population is believed to be too stupid to understand the importance of maintaining an active economy, and a manipulated economy, which has put us in debt for trillions of dollars, almost to the point of failure like Greece. Greed shows up in crafty ways to hide the theft from the people of both life and money.

We don’t want it to be about the money and increase the amount of insurance that we have. We want the security of knowing that whatever disease is stalking us, we have the means to provide the best available. Hidden from us is what is the best available for health and wealth of the individual. Healthcare is always about an expensive new drug, or because it is no longer readily available, even an expensive old drug; always trying to manipulate supply and demand to get the highest margins available. I had a relative that was dying from cancer and it was obvious that he only had a few days or hours at best. He had already started the death rattle as my Dad used to say. The doctor’s response was to offer him a drug that was used regularly in the 1960s, but now was not readily available. The cost of the drug was $50,000 per day. You just can’t make this stuff up. The doctor knew my relative had means and was willing to offer him an imagined time of a few weeks or days of quality life. My relative’s response to this was, “Holy Moly!” Even on his deathbed, he knew he was being scammed.

It is time to take back both our health and financial resources. We have gone too long with the understanding the security of health insurance is more important than our understanding of nutrition. Now it may be hard for you to hold two seemingly unlike things in balance. How can we balance medical/medical insurance industrial complex with nutrition? The interesting thing is our institutions have done that for you because of their belief that you are too stupid to understand. As kept cows, you keep repeating, “Thank you master.” The master treats you with great care while at the same time reaching into your pocket and taking your wallet. Yes, I have just described a mugging. The medical complex gets about half of every dollar you spend on health care and the health insurance complex gets about half. This way, they become equal partners in crime so that one does not rat out the other. Don’t get me wrong. I think we have the best emergency medical system in the world and I’m very grateful for that. If not, I wouldn’t be alive from a ruptured appendix, hypoxia from sleep apnea (which I’ve cured with supplements), two back surgeries to keep me from being paralyzed (I avoided several more with supplements), multiple infections, and two heat strokes.

We recently had the first death from measles in the US since 2003. Think about all of the press you have read about forced measles vaccines and people’s rights to refuse the vaccine. Hold this in opposition to the very inexpensive supplementation of vitamin D. The IOM said 600 IU/d was all that you need in 2010. In November 2014, it was found, when using the same data as the IOM, that they had made a statistical error. The correct amount should have been over 7,000 IU/d as confirmed by three universities. Epidemiologists have said that all we need to stop 37,000 premature deaths in Canada per year is a 25(OH)D level above 40 ng/ml (about 3,000 more IU/d than the present intake from all sources [estimated from grassrootshealth.net chart]) . If we generalize the Canadian deaths for the US population, it is about 400, 000 premature deaths per year for North America.

Where is the press on this issue? How many premature deaths have there been since November 2014 when the error was found? How many premature deaths have there been since 2010 when the error was made? How would all of this affect the health economy since 2010 (generalizing for North America from the above referenced paper, about $150 billion per year or about $750 billion in reduced cost minus the cost of supplementation and two million premature deaths)? Was it really an error? What about the combination of vitamins and minerals? How far off is the recommendation for all supplements and the combination of supplements? My heart aches for those who don’t understand nutrition. My heart aches for the doctors (I really feel for the doctors who are swimming along comfortably as in a school of fish.) who were taught that vitamins and minerals will not cure, prevent, treat, or diagnose disease (On how many supplement bottles have you seen that statement?). Moreover, the US press doesn’t think there is a story here as they worry about one death from measles in the US since 2003 and whether you have been vaccinated.

If you are concerned about this issue, do what I have done – contact your congressional representative. Here is a link to help you find your representative or http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/. Visiting in person is better than a written letter or an email if you would like to take the time. After all, the purpose of the House is to hear the voice of the people. Below is my constituent request. Feel free to print a copy and its links to take to your representative. – Pandemic Survivor

Constituent Request to Representative Mark Walker:
The Department of HHS needs to be investigated by Congress for not quickly responding to the finding that the RDA for vitamin D, as established by the Institute of Medicine (National Academy of Medicine as of July 1), was off by a factor of more than 10. This tragic error may have resulted in as much as hundreds of thousands premature deaths per year and has added a significant burden to the health economy.

  1. J. Veugelers, PhD, Health Canada and the University of Alberta, first reported this error in a published peer reviewed journal paper in November 2014. It was confirmed in a published paper by UCSD and Creighton University in February 2015. To my knowledge, the IOM or HHS or its agencies have taken no action. More details: Dr. Robert Heaney http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2015/02/13/the-iom-miscalculated-its-rda-for-vitamin-d/

The vitamin D market has been manipulated for the profit of the health industry since the 1930s (see attached article for details – Vitamin D for Profits – 1923 to 1946). Fear of the sun has caused a huge decline in health in the US. It is now time to take action to stop the immorality of sustaining and growing the largest segment of the economy from the illness of individuals (see attached Advocacy Letter from Allan Markin ).
