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

Lurker64,

"{{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?"

OK. Uncommon but not unknown. Big deal.

The decline in heart disease by 60%. Maybe smoking declined by, er, 60%?

"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."

And the restaurants deliver SAD. It may taste better but it's not good for you.

"{{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?"

Lurker64, you're such a joy! LMAO!

Jim
