What the Medical Industry Does Not Want You to Know

Every other day, it seems, we hear about another medical horror story. A Tampa, Florida, man has the wrong leg amputated. A 4-year-old girl from New York City bleeds to death after having her tonsils removed. An 8-year-old boy from Denver, Colorado, dies after his anesthesiologist falls asleep during surgery.

We read about big insurance companies and HMOs clamping down on which health care providers we can and cannot see -- and when we can see them. We read about assembly-line medicine and for-profit health care companies that make money when they deny Americans access to health care.
