Neither my wife nor myself believe in the western medical approach of using pharmaceutical drugs, which merely suppress symptoms and do not address the cause of illness. Since the new insurance plans appear to perpetuate this bias against natural and holistic medical services such as the emphasis on the vegan diet and other non-toxic treatment modalities shown to effectively treat and prevent cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc., we have elected not to pay for something we do not endorse and will not use anyway. Simply making pharmaceutical drugs more affordable will in no way solve our health care crisis; it is just slapping a band aid on the problem while the wound continues to fester.
