SOLUTION TO THE MEDICAL FIASCO
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
First, I had a typo in the date of the JAMA article–it was November 13.
The solution is SIMPLE!
Take responsibility for your health!!
84 % of costs are for chronic disease. As John Knowles wrote in the 70’s, most people are born healthy and become unhealthy because of human misbehavior.
This misbehavior consists of:
- 80% of food eaten is junk—fast food, pop, sugar, wheat, etc
- Inadequate exercise
- Inadequate self-regulation
- FAILURE TO HANDLE STRESS
If everyone became responsible for personal health, the system would collapse because of disuse!!!
Hypertension, type 2 diabetes, most heart disease and even most cancer would disappear! John Knowles was right!
