In the Current Debate over Health Care in the USA, I never hear about "What" Health Care is Now --- compared to Health Care over 50 Year Ago ......... but if you think about it, the Only Real Difference, is that we now have Medications that Prolong our Lives, and do a Better Job of Alleviating Suffering.
Other than Better Surgery (replacing hearts, hips, knees), the Only Major Advances in Medicine in the Last 70 Years or so has been Innoculations, which can help to Prevent Diseases (Polio was the Big Breakthrough) and Antibiotics that Stave Off Infections (bacterial, not viral).
But we HAVE NOT FOUND CURES TO DISEASES !!!
We can Kill some Diseases or Prolong the Lives of Those Who are Afflicted (cancer for example) ... but we have NOT FOUND CURES !!
The Lack of Cures is Why I Found the the Following Article to be of Such Great Interest.
This Article Actually Talks About the Need for CURES !!! It starts out a little dry (Doctors are not known for prose) but STICK WITH IT AND CLICK TO THEIR WEBSITE .... in my opinion THIS IS REAL DISCUSSION ABOUT OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.
