Is the population being intentionally poisoned?
The incentive structure in profit-driven medicine encourages keeping people sick, but alive, and on numerous medications, while taking numerous expensive tests.
A healthy person has no need of medication or tests and so is a lost cause to the for-profit medical industry.
This creates an incentive amongst drug and medical equipment makers to encourage poor health habits in the population, and even worse, to encourage the active poisoning of the people to encourage sickness and enhance demand for medical products and services.
Such despicable behaviour may seem unrealistic to the common man, used to acting with common decency towards others, but may be common practice among the ruthless power elite, who have shaped markets and government policy to suit their own business ends for many decades, irrespective of the detrimental effect on human health.
