I can't think of anyone richer than Steve Jobs, and yet with all his money he died from pancreatic cancer at age 56.
His money couldn't save him, and the medical system couldn't save him.
Did he try using essiac? Did he even know what essiac is?
He was vegan and filthy rich, which means he had access to the best organic food, the worlds best supplements, doctors, etc. but nothing helped him and he died.
Did he know about vitamin B17? Did he know who Sam Gerson was? Did he know anything about THC oils? Did he know about the Hoxsey treatment?
Did he ever hear of a small Polish doctor named Stanislaw Burzynski?
What I have great difficulty understanding is why do people follow their doctor's orders when these doctors live to the average age of 56?!
In answer to the origional poster's question, the mainstream medical system has a monopoly over health care, and everyone else is a quack. Until that changes, nothing will change.
Doctor's expect diabetes to double over the next 10 years. This tells me that they don't have a clue as to what causes it, nor how to stop it. they only care to control it with prescription drugs, just like their owners want.
