One cannot have a secure nation without economic and public health, no matter how much is spent on wars overseas or on national defense. One cannot have a high rate of academic achievement without a high rate of public health. (Spending over a half a billion dollars on a high school in LA will not help academic achievement if its pupils are eating candy bars and pizza for lunch along with a soda pop, and then are taking an antidepressant, ADHD, or other psychotropic drug… all while having a serious case of a yeast called candida at the same time.)
Basic common sense applies here. One cannot have a high rate of public or economic health if much of our nation is regularly taking toxic, symptom masking drugs, while eating a diet of processed and/or junk foods at the same time. And spending a trillion or two on never-ending wars is not going to help our national security if a large (and growing) portion of American youth are obese, mineral (or other essential nutrient) deficient, health compromised, disabled, addicted, “dumbed down” by toxins or bad foods, or mentally ill. It Is Time For Change. Governmental medicine needs to go the way of the dinosaur. It is both fraudulent and obsolete. It is bankrupting this country economically, as well as bankrupting the public health.
