The greatest disaster of this millennium has been three man-made ones.
First is the 450,000 people who are killed by tobacco, of which 50,000 are innocent bystanders. Second would be the 300,000 plus who die early because they lack the will power to take care of their body,
in particular the amount of fat they carry coupled with their sedentary lifestyle. The
third would be the Vioxx and related COX-2 inhibitors. Vioxx alone has caused
160,000 coronary events including 55,000 deaths. The COX-2
incident is symptomatic of a disease, which has 3 roots. 1) Our government’s
leaders who place fund raising before public service, and in particular their cooperation with the pharmaceutical industry. 2) The corporate structure, which seeks to maximize profits, including drug companies. Drug companies consistently act to suppress and down play issues that effect sales. 3) The media which fails to draw adequate attention to issues that will offend either the business community
or government. For those who find these of importance, there is a library of
materials on those issues.
The harm done by a for-profit system is not merely limited to drugs that kill. There is a failure to find out which drug works best, and thus health care professionals are grouping in
the dark unnecessarily when make health-care choices. There is the wasting of
funds on me-to types of drugs instead of developing new drugs that would be more needed but less profitable. There is the price gouging that places drugs such as statins out of the budget of millions who ought to
be taking them. There is the high cost of medical examinations which keep more
millions from going to the doctor. There are reasons why by far the most expensive
medical system comes at 11th in the life expectancy stats, which is near the bottom of the industrialized countries.--jk
IT IS NOT THE TYPE OF HARM DONE, BUT THE AMOUNT AND IS IT PREVENTABLE. ENVIRONMENTALISTS ALL TOO OFTEN TREAT BLACKHEADS AND MISS BOILS DRIPPING PUSS.
The greatest environmental risk is the nuclear weapons stockpiles
