Re: U.S. Healthcare System Doesn’t Care if You Live or Die — as Long as It Gets Paid

Lurker64,

"My first thought is 'if you haven't seen a doctor in years, how do you know you aren't in danger of a heart attack?"

Normal blood pressure. Good diet. I don't smoke.

Heart disease was unknown in the US prior to the 20th century. It's another disease of western civilization, that is, the Standard American Diet.

"Let's change that to a severe, life-threatening accident."

As I have noted previously, that's when you really need western-style technology. However, while you're in the hospital recuperating, you will be fed SAD.

Jim

P.S. If I had written the article, I would said that doctors in the US get paid for their performance, both good and bad.
