Is the problem with health care in America caused by its being a profit driven business?
Is healthy business in direct competition with providing health care for all citizens?
“The AMA serves the financial interests of its members, not primarily the health and well-being of the American people.” Does this compromise the quality and cost of health care in our country? These issues and more are covered by a former industry insider and medical doctor. This is an interesting study of the Medical Industrial Complex and what many believe is a serious problem in our country today.

“The American system of [pharmaceutical] research is rife with unethical conduct and financial conflict of interest...studies have been conducted in underdeveloped countries on “children who were often gravely ill, undernourished and highly vulnerable...and where medical personnel have been really badly taxed.” These are major pharmaceutical companies with recognizable names and an industry driven by a profit motive.

“As Americans bear the brunt of high cost and low performance, every other developed nation far exceeds our rate of progress in dealing with such basics as infant mortality, immunizations, infectious disease rate, malnutrition, and sanitation.”

This book is for anyone who wants to take a peek behind the curtain of the medical establishment. The author is a knowledgeable industry expert and uses verifiable statistics and studies all well documented in endnotes. He closes the book with a multi-point plan to reform the existing medical coverage in this country.
