The government can no longer ensure the public health, either from the environmental disaster or the “orthodox” Bermuda Triangle (FDA AMA and drug companies). For the last five years, the “medical industrial” Bermuda Triangle has cost the American people more than the Pentagon and national defense budget! Yet, Americans are rated 24th in longevity, 19th in healthfulness, 23rd in live births and first year survivability and 32nd in birth defects when compared with the western industrialized nations by the WHO. The 18 countries that are healthier than us have a total gross national product of less than what we spend for medical care. We are not getting equitable value for our health car dollar!!! We have changed the American economic systems from “guns and butter” to “guns and pharmaceuticals!!” It is of interest that the government agency that came forward in 1992 an said that all sexually active women should be taking vitamins and minerals before conception to prevent birth defects was the CFC (Center for Disease Control)- not the FDA! It makes sense though – The CDC is beholding to no one or no company for generating revenues as is the FDA! When AT&T had a monopoly on the long distance fees and telephone equipment rentals, the rates sky-rocketed ( it’s the nature of the beast to charge whatever the market will bear). The government finally deregulated them and actually split them up into smaller regional companies and encouraged new competitive companies to emerge and let the market place decide the costs and services needed. Withing Two years, the quality of service improved and AT&T dropped their costs to meet those of the competition. It is amazing what true free enterprise does for the consumer. We are convinced that the best interest of the American people would be preserved if there is a separation of “Medicine” And “State”.
The monopoly must end. No surgery without rebates(“no taxation without representation “). Don’t operate on me (“Don’t Tread on Me”). Give me alternative health care or give me death (“Give me liberty or give me death”). These homey little sayings are what triggered the “Boston Tea Party;” isn’t it time for a “Boston (Herbal) tea party?
The environment is another public health concern from the micro environment of our homes (i.e., contaminated food, contaminated water, chlorine, formaldehyde(laundry detergent), Radon gas, chlorinated hydrocarbons, etc) to the national environment burdened with industrial and medical wastes. We have established rules and regulations to ensure laboratory animals health and well-being down to the air flow exchanges per hour, water and food quality, numbers per square foot, lightening quality, etc.: doesn’t it seem odd that we can solve all of these problems for laboratory animals and not for ourselves.
As unlikely as it sounds, the Bermuda Triangle (FDA, AMA and drug companies) have threads in common with the solving of the environmental crisis. In each case, we must take matters into our own hands! Not only must we become out own “primary health care provider” but we must also take on the responsibility for our own household “micro” environment! This means dropping our personal pollution load to a minimum by growing a certain amount of our own “organic” food, we must have home water treatment systems and air conditioning systems in the fullest sense (not just cooling), energy conservation (i.e., home solar power, wind power generation for the home where appropriate).
Home water treatment systems are no longer an elective luxury; they have, in fact, become necessary to life itself. There are more than 3,000 chemicals in our drinking and bathing water that are not removed by the present community water treatment systems (just because the water is clear doesn’t mean it is safe!). Almost all of these chemicals are carcinogenic. The types of filters required to remove all of these chemicals are too slow for the volume of water required by the general use. We must do it ourselves or become a cancer statistic twice ( first for getting cancer from our drinking water and second killed by the “cut,” “burn” and “poison” surgery, radiation and chemotherapy of the “orthodox” medicine!!!); these carcinogens are insidious, They are colorless and odorless but deadly! A filter with bone charcoal will remove all of the hydrocarbons and heavy metals.
Air treatment is another essential system in your home. Remember, you spend a minimum of eight hours or 33.3333333333333333333333333333333333333333% of your day in your home (housewives spend as much as 90% of their day in the house! Women also have an overall higher cancer rate among men!
In Europe and Asia, it is common for city dwellers to raise a portion of their own food; not only is it a healthful, relaxing hobby but it is also an economical hobby. It guarantees you a portion of your food take is organically grown thus reducing your pollution intake from food sources. Vegetables are easy for the beginner including carrots, bell peppers, radishes, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, etc,; meats can include rabbits, pigeons, chickens, eggs, fish, etc. At retirement, this “hobby” will turn into a big dividend on your fixed income and you can sell your “surplus!!”
Be sure to include plant derived colloidal minerals into your public health program – they prevent disease and reduce your risk of damage from heavy metals and pollution in the environment!
Don’t wait for a “Love Canal” incident in your community before you get concerned. Remember, “This Is Your Life!” Be bold, take control of your own destiny, your own health and your own household’s “Public Health.”
