The Benefits of Health Care Reform

“...the benefits that US health care currently delivers may not outweigh the aggregate health harm that it imparts.”

- JAMA July 1, 2009

Health Care Reform in the United States

Gerald Clum, D.C., president of Life West Chiropractic College is among the greatest minds in natural health. Recently he offered a unique perspective on all the talk thats been taking place on health care. Dr. Clum mentioned in an alumni bulletin that we are now entertaining discussions about the real benefits and real costs of health care. He sited a July 1 2009 JAMA article ran called “Exploring the Harmful Effects of Health Care” as evidence that the medical profession is also questioning the effects of modern medicine. Quoting the first paragraph of the article by Kilo and Larson “...the benefits that US health care currently delivers may not outweigh the aggregate health harm that it imparts.”

Both the public and alternative practitioners have long questioned the value of so called preventative medical treatments such as cholesterol lowering drugs, antacids and antidepressants that may be doing more harm than good.
