I don't agree that there's any kind of "scheme" going on though. I work on the supply side of the health industry and my experience is government generally makes it harder and more expensive to treat people effectively. You don't know my lifestyle, my test results or have any medical expertise. So you can't really claim if I'm making a poor decision or not.
I think thats pure insanity to that, respectfully. How can the 4th leading killer in America in 2013, pharmaceutical medicines, be properly regulated? Big pharma has a stranglehold on the US government. The FDA is a joke and I really hope you investigate them for yourself.
