in australia there is health care for everyone and its great.
id rather pay slightly higher taxes for all the benefits i get from health care here. everyone, kids, babies, families.
my very expensive UC meds will never cost more than $30 a pop.
i go to the specialist, pay $75 and medicare gives me $58 back.
and stem cell research should be allowed no matter what. screw everyone who disagrees with the morality of it. they are usually the ones with no problems.
i just heard about
some studies about
sugars and there are 8 of them that are important in regards to inflammatory diseases and auto immune diseases. the shape of the sugars on the outside of our cells are different and the immune system thinks they are foreign bodies and attacks them. these sugars are missing from the 20th century diet and nutrition.
im checking it out. let me know if any of you are interested and i can forward some info.
i will keep you posted on the outcome.
the doctors studying it did a sugar disease test and could actually see the changes on the cellular level when these sugars were added and the immune system just stopped attacking. very interesting imo.
