The Evolution Of Medicine
It’s a sad fact that the evolution of medicine, especially in America, has been an evolution from providing medical services to becoming a massively profitable industry focused at least as much on making money as in treating or curing medical conditions. Indeed, it has evolved so far along that path that the medical industry – as opposed to, mind you, the majority of doctors – much prefers to treat diseases’ symptoms, rather than cure them.
Think about it for a moment. The pharmaceutical industry, which comprises only slightly more than 10% of the US medical industry’s wealth-based power, has repeatedly been able to dictate terms to the US government in order to protect themselves from income-damaging legislation.
