Yes, I’m being a devil’s advocate here but what if we were all well and there was no cancer or other serious illnesses. Would the economic wheels come to a stand still? Would there be horrendous over crowding on the planet? Would we be dying of starvation instead? Hmmmm…Maybe we would. However, I have a feeling that we would find a way to balance things better. Human beings seem to find a way to solve problems although sometimes it makes you wonder with some of the political decisions that get made. BUT if decisions were made with care, good judgement etc and weren’t made with only ecnomics in mind, I think things would become more balanced but I guess we need some imbalances or we wouldn’t have anything to complain about. LOL
I belong to a discussion group on Linked in – Women’s Wellness that Works. Check out the comments about curing cancer. I like many of the participants in the discussion, think there is a cure. The AMA and other medical organizations would rather we don’t know that because lots of money gets made from pharmaceutical treatments for cancer and all kinds of other ailments. It’s big business and probably bigger than we realize.
Here’s one of my pet peeves…Mammograms. Not only are they not all that accurate but they are very painful and they ARE radiation. Now think about it…after a certain age we women are all supposed to go and get one every year. So every year you are radiating your boobs!!! Aghhh! I have never had one and never will unless they drag me kicking and screaming! There is another way and it’s called Thermography. We have been telling people about this for years but there aren’t that many places that do it in Vancouver or on Vancouver Island. If anyone knows of some places, please comment and let’s build a list.
Another pet peeve that isn’t about cancer but probably contributes to the rise in cancer and all kinds of other illnesses, are vaccines…particularly flu shots. Another thing you will have to drag me kicking and screaming to get. I love to look at the timeline of when they were first introduced and how well the marketing people have done to get them to be mainstream. At first they were only for older people that were at risk for pneumonia, then they were marketed for children who were at risk, then bit by bit they were pushed on everyone. Now every year there are notices about flu clinics all over the place and we can cheerfully show up and get poked so we can be well all season. What a load of BS! Many people get sick anyway or get sick from the shot itself and then what about the long term issues they cause. We don’t even know about that! That’s a secret! Anyway, enough ranting. Check out the discussion and see what other people are thinking about all this.
