Food Website Finds American Health Consumers to be Knuckleheads

Healthcare experts (“Dr. Mercola”) at FoodConsumer.com weigh in on the problem with America’s healthcare system: greed.

Hospitals aren’t alone in cashing in on your continuing sickness. Surgeons, for example, are always looking for ways to maximize their profits. The online Becker’s Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) Review even tells surgeons how to add to their bottom line by increasing outpatient services: 

 Orthopedic and spinal surgeons are encouraged to pad their paychecks by adding ancillary services such as physical therapy, performing MRI/Imaging and electromyography nerve testing (EMGs), selling durable medical equipment for use in a patient’s home, and to invest in their own private ambulatory surgery center, if they haven’t already.”
