#3444068 Examples Of How Bad Our 'health' Care System Has Become

Posted by Wishonastar on 28 July 2014 - 06:25 PM

It sounds more like peoples poor lifestyle choices than a truly broken system. 


Alternavista, the system is fine, it may not conform to your god like standards of pure nutrition but in all honesty the food guide is fairly reasonable. That's not the problem, the problem is compulsion. Being obese and smoking and subsequently dying of the health affects is a lifestyle choice. That's right, a "life style choice". It's free will. 



Really?  All the fraud?  The antibiotic resistant strains for which we have no treatment?  The massive over drugging of the population? The deaths caused by the drugs?  the fact that few doctors even know about the toxic effects of added sugar?  They think it's just calories?  Doctors telling people that sure diet and exercise are good, but what you really need is a drug? And if that drug causes a problem, we'll add another drug for that?  The outrageous costs?  The people going bankrupt?  That all sounds fine to you?


It's not just obese smokers being harmed. Children now get diseases that should only occur in the elderly if then, like Type II diabetes.  And obviously its a choice. (You say the most pointless things) And people need real information to make a good choice.  Ignorance eventually kills.


But I'm glad you've learned that lifestyle causes disease.  Breakthough!! A little bit less ignorant.


Lifestyle is also how chronic disease should be managed.


I highly doubt when someone dines at McDonald's they're utterly oblivious that what they're eating is unhealthy. They know, they don't care. It's a fact of life. 


It's not ignorance it's will. You could teach a health class full of unhealthy obese people and try to explain everything you know in regards to nutrition and I guarantee you not one of them would listen to you. 


Doctors sometimes only prescribe a drug to treat a disease that could very well be managed by lifestyle instead only because they know their patients won't stick to a diet. 


Compulsion and addiction is behind obesity, not hidden additives. It's very psychological, trust me. 

#3443857 Acne Doesn't Signal Illness

Acne is a multifactorial disease of the oil glands influenced by hormones. It is not a sign of a bad liver, weak immune system, inferior genetics, food allergy, emotional problems, gut disturbance or even hormonal imbalance. 


Just because you have acne does not mean you're sick - more than likely you're perfectly healthy as the next person, You just have bad skin.


Don't fret or panic that you have some horrible underlying health problem. It's really unlikely there's anything wrong with you. Remember some people just have acne, it's just apart of your genes.

.. Also if acne was an immunological condition like some of you are saying why don't they just treat it with steroids? They don't, because it's not. 


no derm considers acne an "inflammatory disease" it's considered hormonal and tends to be hereditary. 



Meh I tried. Believe whatever you want. 


You could try reading this article, since I know you will not take my word for it: http://www.medscape....warticle/448506


Dermatologists today were educated with principles decades now outdated. Recent research shows that acne is an outcome of immune dysfunction:


Isotretinoin normalized TLR2-mediated immune response: http://www.nature.co...id2012111a.html


Correlation between certain immune factors and acne severity: http://eng.med.wanfa...e=zhpf201102017


Microcomedogenesis driven by immune factors: http://europepmc.org...ct/MED/23986176



The information our medical practitioners have is from time to time outdated.


These are studies not facts. Not every study is right actually many are absurdly flawed (vaccines cause autism ect.). 


I think what you're trying to say is that acne is really an immune system issue. If that were the case wouldn't that spread over into other aspects of the immune system? Wouldn't acne patients be sick all the time if they were so immune impaired. 


I have had acne since I was 12 which warranted Accutane at 17 and have always had a normal immune system. Even as a now ventilator dependent quadriplegic I rarely ever get sick with UTI's or upper respitory infections. Why is that?

wow i actually wanted to ask the same exact question like a day ago! :0
what is in our bodies before puberty that allows it wont be inflammed then?
why do other ppl dont even get no acne during puberty?
the same goes with allergies and intolerances that are popular here, dont u have those from when ur born not appearing some random time at ur life? 
when i was small could eat dairy, grains etc just fine somehow..only had somekinda alergy from oringes (but not allways either?), would break out everywhere, but those were not acne nd it wasnt just on face (like usually it is first and only place where acne starts)
now ill do diff crazy health cleanses and do clean diets, supplemetns etc etc and still break out like its nothing. max few days without new breakouts. but then again i was on bad diet and also will get good skin days. diet improves skin quality a bit i think but it seems so freaking useless for acne..


Exactly. People for the most part when they're allergic to something have the allergy rear during childhood - not adolescence. I think it's pretty clear for those of us with food common sense that acne isn't a food allergy. 


I could be be wrong but I think a lot if the theories coming from this section of the forums are propelled by pseudo science.

Think about that for a minute. The acne is caused by diet claims are ludicrous. Acne is a hormonal disease  with a strong genetic link (bad acne tends to run in families). 


Stop with the conspiracies.
