Why Are U.S. Children Dying At An Alarming Rate? – Dr. Brownstein

0 Love this post.0

The journal Health Affairs compared the mortality rate of children in 19 wealthy, Western countries and published a new study in January, 2018.

On the face of the earth, the United States spends more money on health care than any other country. In fact, far greater when compared to any other Western country, we spend nearly 20% of our gross national product on health care.

The authors of the article comment,

“The United States has poorer child health outcomes than other wealthy nations despite greater per capita spending on health care for children. While child mortality progressively declined across all countries, mortality in the US has been higher than in peer nations since the 1980s. From 2001 to 2010 the risk of death in the US {when compared to other Western countries} was 76 percent greater for infants and 57 percent greater for children ages 1–19.”

One of the best indicators is the childhood mortality rate, if you want to measure the health of a country. In general, the healthier the population is, the lower the childhood mortality rate. It is plain to see that our children are not doing well, when you compare the U.S. childhood mortality rate to other Western countries.

President Trump makes it clear that he does not like losing. Well, we are losing when it comes to health care. And to make things worse, we pay tons of dollar, just to finish last.

Some say our children need more vaccinations. Presently, U.S. children receive more vaccines than any other children on the planet.  More vaccines are clearly not needed here.  Maybe our children are over-vaccinated.  I have written about this topic in previous blog posts and in my newsletter form March 2017, Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health.  In this article I wrote about how too many vaccines may be negatively affecting our children’s’ health.

Where is the outrage about our high childhood mortality rate?  Where are the headlines in the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times?  Where are the Congressional investigations into why our children, when they are compared to other Western children, are finishing last on nearly every health indicator?

Apparently, we need a different approach to health care, as the way we have been doing things for the last 50 years have not worked.  We cannot continue to spend increasing amounts of the GNP on a failed health care model.

How do we change things?  I practiced conventional medicine many years ago. When I realized that I was not helping people, I decided that I could not continue to practice that way. I was busy prescribing prescription medications that not only did not treat the underlying cause of my patients’ problems; they were fraught with adverse effects.  I found a holistic approach, using items that actually support the body’s functions, more effective and safer when compared to what I was taught in medical school.

It is time for the public, to learn about holistic ideas. Only when we all decide that we have had enough of spending our hard-earned dollars on subpar care will things change. I know you are as frustrated as I am with what is going on in our health care system.  If your health care provider is not providing you with alternatives to expensive and toxic therapies then I say it is time to find one that does.

In my newsletter and my books you can find more information about safe and effective natural remedies.
