Is Medical Care the the largest business in the United States? Is Medical Care out of control? I don't watch TV, so I am exposed to many fewer mind numbing commercial advertisements than those who do, however, I am still exposed. I went a movie theater last night and suffered about 30 minutes of back to back slick commercial advertising of everything from expensive cars, to the latest in cell phones to medical advertising. Going to the "movies"use to be mostly safe from advertising, not any more. The large number of commercials was disturbing and I don't think I will return to that theater. Commercial advertising has become so pervasive, that it is now actually hazardous and medical advertising is hazardous to your health.
The medical spends billion$ every year on commercial advertising to convince you to use their drugs, chemicals, procedures and facilities. Medical advertising offers the quick fix, not the best cure. I did a quick internet search and typed in "Medical Advertising" and got page after page of companies that offer medical advertising. The following is just some of what I found: Plan, Create and Run Ads That Get Results - television, radio, magazines, newspapers, billboards, bus, signage, direct mail, internet, yellow pages, media buying and movie theaters, get more patients today, medical advertising hall of fame, hospital marketing ideas, marketing for physicians, advertising that delivers patients, Pharma advertising today. It is easy to see that all of the advertising/convincing has become a huge commercial wasteland.
And, if all that commercial convincing, advertising isn't enough, they the medical spends truck-loads of money purchasing friendly legislation and legislators to keep themselves in control in a sea of money, our money. The medical does not want competition and they want you to believe/think that they are the best/only way to go. They are not! The unrestrained pursuit of profit is hazardous to your health. Learn of alternative health care, it works and alternative health care puts you in control of your health. Check out livingthewellness.com and "Health Greed Power II. Bob Brown
