A POLEMIC AGAINST THE MEDICAL/PHARMACEUTICAL ESTABLISHMENT
Brad Case, Thugs, Drugs and the War on Bugs: How the Natural Healthcare Revolution Will Lead Us past Greed, Ego, and Scary Germs Prunedale, CA: New Renaissance Books, 2010) (From the book jacket: "The medical/pharmaceutical establishment's historical preoccupation with symptom suppression and disease management is a major factor in why we're so unhealthy. . . ." "Rather than spending all our money treating symptoms and thus creating new diseases, or fighting against the final stages of disease, a rational system of healthcare would focus first on preventing disease, second on identifying the cause of a person's ill health, and third on using safe, non-toxic methods to induce healing. Only after these methods have been employed should drugs or surgery even been considered." Interesting food for thought!).
