The government indoctrinated generations to believe that a healthful diet meant avoiding animal fats, and getting your TWELVE servings a day of breads and cereals.
That is actually a guaranteed recipe for diabetes, hypertension, depression etc.
If they came out now and owned this, and instead educated the citizenry that going to the doctor is more harmful than helpful, snd that a healthful diet consists of smallish amounts of food in general, but more importantly, that which actually constitutes food (fish and animal fats and proteins along with fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables) the market place would at least stand a chance to be occupied by an informed citizenry.
Back to the thread topic it sure seems there is little interest in actually curing anything as there is in stringing people along be it Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, ADHD etc. Between the advertising, sale of drugs, insurance premiums, health care related stock there is way too much money at stake to want anyone to actually be cured and be done with the system.
Is this an evil decision made for us, by the profiteers side of the trade, or is it the market based reaction to the reality of present day human actions?
Most all of the diseases you referenced (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, ADHD lol), aren't mysterious viral infections. They are the terms we use to describe conditions that arise from malnutrition and (poor) lifestyle choices.
If the government and education systems would just quit with their propaganda and misinformation wrt nutrition, and instead doled out good information, then people would at least be armed with the information they need to make the dietary and lifestyle choices that would pretty much erase the need for all of our "healthcare" systems bullshit. And costs could align to reflect
When you climb into bed for the night, is your bedroom "littered" with dim light from streetlights, passing traffic, a computer, night-light or television set? Even if the light is so dim that you can easily sleep through it, light pollution can prompt biological changes that have a very significant, and potentially serious, impact on your physical and mental health. Obvious examples would be the glow that can be seen from miles outside of a big city, or the absence of stars in the night sky if you live in an urban environment. More subtle examples of light pollution are...
Despite extensive research, the current theories on serotonergic dysfunctions and cortisol hypersecretion do not provide sufficient explanations for the nature of depression. Rational treatments aimed at causal factors of depression are not available yet. With the currently available antidepressant drugs, which mainly target serotonin, less than two thirds of depressed patients achieve remission. There is now evidence that inflammatory and neurodegenerative (I&ND) processes play an important role in depression and that enhanced neurodegeneration in depression may-at least partly-be caused by inflammatory processes. Multiple inflammatory-cytokines, oxygen radical damage, tryptophan catabolites-and neurodegenerative biomarkers have been established in patients with depression and these...
Liquid water runs down canyons and crater walls over the summer months on Mars, according to researchers who say the discovery raises the chances of being home to some form of life.
Usually, when people talk about searching space for alien life form, they talk about finding an intelligent species. Like hoping we'd find something more intelligent than our own species, so it can answer our questions, solve our problems, teach us. Or the most likely scenario, so we can kill it
But reading the words "some form of life", is much more promising, because it's more likely. I envision sime big shitty smelling Sleestack looking aliens, being a more likely discovery. Then the politicians and the scientists under their payroll thumbs, will cry that "we must help them!" And they'll import them, force them to live amongst the poor dumb white trash of the south, so that they can be completely insulated from the crappy ignorant aliens. And then they'll bleet on about how fucking racist the WTs are for not figuring out how to cohabitate in peace
I own a passat, and I plan to let things play out for awhile. 45k in the first two years, and I'm still pleased. Generally I don't feel we've had quite as good fuel efficiency as I expected, but with fuel prices halving, not as much need to worry about it.
If their solution is a voluntary recall where they tune it down for lesser performance at the expense of fuel economy, I'll stay home.
I asked them when I first purchased the vehicle, why/how such a small urea reservoir didn't need refilled more frequently, they didn't have an answer. We have a peterbuilt and Isuzu in our fleet, and their much larger reservoirs need filled regularly
You could try and sell your tomatoes for 100$ a piece, but there's no law keeping me from growing my own and then giving them away for free. In that scenario, why would you pay the other guy $100 when I can offer you the same thing for free?
I'm amazed that you're struggling so hard to understand something so simple
