The health insurance industry that exists today is a failing business model, mainly because it compensates an often vicious, deadly model of healthcare. Check out Pharma Death Clock to get an idea of the full scope of the problem.

The system also detaches people from true health responsibility, allowing consumers to pay their monthly premiums and forget about where their health really comes from. What if health insurance premium money was used for better preventative care? What if less was spent on depending on interventions and more was spent on healthier lifestyle decisions and getting proper nutrition? Many of the high cost interventions of the healthcare system could be avoided altogether, if for instance, there was greater breastfeeding support for mothers and newborns in their first year of life. In one comprehensive review, researchers reported that greater breastfeeding rates could save 820,000 premature childhood deaths (under 5 years) each year. Additionally, thousands of ER visits could be avoided for cases of diarrhea and respiratory infection.
