Why the Most Dangerous Thing You Can Have is Good Medical Insurance


Ty Bollinger: So Robert, here’s a couple
quotes I want you to talk about. First one, I’ve heard you say that “the most dangerous
thing a person can have is good medical insurance.” What do you mean by that? Dr. Robert Scott Bell: Well, it’s a funny
thing to say and some people get offended when I say that because you know the biggest
bulk of the American population, unfortunately, we’ve been clamoring for affordable health
care or affordable health insurance, which really nothing about the system supports health.
It is, as you said, medical insurance. It is covering management of disease; it’s
not preventive of disease and if we were to look at the appropriate role for insurance
it would be dealing with catastrophic unexpected scenarios. That is a legitimate role for insurance. Not
the way it is utilized today as a third party intervener in the doctor, patient relationship. And going back to the monopoly of medicine
and the Flexner Report, they limit your choice of doctors – any kind you want as long as
it’s allopathic, right? That’s like old Communist Russia or East Germany. You can
have any color car you want as long as it’s black. It’s not much of a choice, but we’ve
been convinced that we have to have a choice within the no choice scenario. And so when we talk politically about whatever
you want to call Obamacare, and it could have been Bushcare, it doesn’t matter to me.
That it embraces an exclusivity and a monopoly and mandates your participation, and it is
a corruption to begin with. So, if I say the most dangerous thing you
can have is good medical insurance, the reason is this. It’s because it guarantees
the doctors will order every invasive test possible and give you access to every invasive
medical procedure, drug… anything. And these things are
deadly, deadly. And when you find out what really cures cancer and heals cancer, I mean,
heck, just read “Cancer – Step Outside the Box” by this guy… who is this guy? Oh Ty,
that’s you. You’ll see that the reality is more people
die of the treatment of that form of monopoly medical oncological treatment. And that if
you did nothing, if you did nothing you would at the very least survive the same amount
of time, but with a much higher quality of life and in most cases you may live far longer
if you did nothing. Although there are some things, many things in fact that you can do,
and that’s what we’re doing here, revealing at least some of those things that you can
do. So yes, I believe as it is today the most dangerous thing you can have is good medical
insurance.

  1. "at the very least, if you did nothing (to treat cancer) you would have a better quality of life and live as long…"

    Both my father and sister refused conventional cancer treatment, believing better nutrition would cure them and both experienced a slow, messy, exceedingly painful death. They didn't just peacefully slip away and there was nothing dignified about it. You know what might have spared them and their families that horrific experience? A colonoscopy to remove precancerous tumors or an early lumpectomy to stem the spread of breast cancer. Those invasive procedures you're so against.

  2. Amen! I have been saying this for years! I even came from the industry. Now, I live in Ecuador, and have not had medical insurance for 7 years now (on purpose, as I believe in natural solutions and if I do need emergency care the costs here are not as crazy), and I am healthier for it at the age of 53. Spread this message far and wide! It is a form of control and a trap for not taking control of your own health. In the states, at best, all people need is a truthful education on how to be healthy, and a catastrophic plan for emergencies AND ONLY because the system costs are so out of control.Thank you!

  3. Talk about a convoluted message …
    Blanket, broad brush terminology that confuses people. Look, yes, preventative care is important. People can do that on their own. "Education …" Really? As if people don't know that smoking and no exercise and eating Mickey Dees is unhealthy … somehow millions of people still live this way. Putting the calorie count on a food sign won't stop a denial ridden person from sucking down the garbage? The reason medical insurance still exists in the US is because some people want choices and access to the best levels of care possible when they or their families need it and they'll pay for it. They do not want to be told by who or where and when they will be treated. Otherwise let's lump everyone into one bucket and bring on the $6 gas. Medical treatment has to be paid for like anything else. Maybe that's the way to go. But don't kid yourselves, that's the option. Healthcare is a commodity just like any other good or service. Think about why there are so many distribution channels to access healthcare via health insurance …? A PPO will cost more than an HMO. Original Medicare costs more than a Medicare Advantage plan. We have, employer group plans, individual plans, the VA, Medicaid, Medicare, Federal and State employee plans, etc … A higher level of access costs more. Everyone jockeys for position in all aspects of life in the US including their healthcare. It's not a "conspiracy," it's supply and demand. Just pointing out reality.
