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

{{"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.}}
 
Good for you, you're doing at least some of the right things.
 
{{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.}}
 
Not really. Uncommon, but certainly not unknown. By the way, death from heart disease has dropped 60% since 1950. Why do you think that is?
 
{{...while you're in the hospital recuperating, you will be fed SAD.}}
 
And of course you must eat whatever they decide to feed you? Like a little kid you must clean your plate or no dessert? That sucks.
 
Here, we get a menu and we pick what we want to eat. As I would if I was not given a menu to choose from. As a last resort I'd order in. Lots of restaurants deliver.
 
{{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.}}
 
What is wrong with that?
