Here is a good article on how bad the health industry is.

I was gong to read this but when I saw paragraph 3 which I have pasted for us all...
A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely shocking. These researchers have authored a paper titled “Death by Medicine” that presents compelling evidence that today’s medical system frequently causes more harm than good.
and I look at the following phrase in that paragraph...
"...that presents compelling evidence that today’s medical system frequently causes more harm than good."
and my mind lost it while I was trying to perform mental gymnastics because I could not think of one instance where a surgeon ever gave a patient appendicitis.
I was also trying to visualize people walking into an orthopedist with no broken bones and walking out with broken bones.
But where I really lost it was when I was trying to picture hundreds of people going to a dentist with a full set of perfect pearly whites and leaving with a mouthful of cavities.
I mean there is just something about that phrase and that paragraph. It almost reminds me of somethign that would be written by L Ron Hubbard in an early paragraph of one of his ramblings where he tries to first convince the reader that the experts got it wrong and now he is going to set things straight.
Kind of like the Data Series where he says that Aristolean logic is for the birds and a man would go quite mad reading a book on logic.
Catch my drift?
