Quick Trip on the WayBack Machine:
Just over 25 years ago now, Dr. Alan Lindemann and I wrote a book about the high cost of health care in the United States and what needed to be done to make any real changes in the way health care in this country was heading.
The issues Dr. Lindemann and I discussed in our book, Modern Medicine: What You’re Dying To Know are still with us. Only predictably worse. Actually, even worse than we had anticipated.
All developed countries except the U.S. have universal health care for their residents. Not only are residents provided good, basic health care at little or no cost, but the countries have remarkably lower maternal death rates than the U.S. Yes, there is a connection, which Dr. Lindemann addresses in his video course “How to Avoid Losing Your Life in Childbirth.”
We reprinted the book even though there are now many more books on how to fix the dysfunctional health care system in this country. Few of them, however, address the real problems we wrote about back then. Problems which are still with us and never seem to make it to the discussion table on the high costs of health care in the U.S.
