What The U.S. Healthcare System Doesn't Want You To Know, Why, And How You Can Do Something About It by Kat Lahr
Consumers of healthcare are conditioned to be uninformed and misguided.
Why? Well, the United States healthcare system — health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, specialists, and others — is assembled to keep you sick. They don’t want you to know this because it’s making them very rich.
In fact, we are the only developed nation in the world that allows the health industry to profit, maintaining incentives for providers to keep us sick. This status quo is kept alive by keeping Americans uninformed. We have been conditioned to not know the inner workings of our healthcare system, and as a result, we are powerless.
Yet, we can, and should, do something about it. As a form of public service to the uninformed health consumer, which studies show to be 90% of Americans, this powerful and one-of-a-kind exposé provides the data and facts from reputable sources to support these bold conclusions and urges readers to make their own. Then, Kat provides specific opportunities on how to take action in response!
So, what does the U.S healthcare system not want you to know? You are invited to become informed.
