Surviving Healthcare

Robert Yoho, retired cosmetic surgeon

HOW YOU CAN SURVIVE “HEALTHCARE,” THE LARGEST AND MOST CORRUPT INDUSTRY IN AMERICA. ✪ Learn what works. ✪ See through the lies. ✪ Handle hospitals. ✪ Find trustworthy doctors. ✪ Master your drugs and quit them with confidence. Healthcare is the top cause of all our overdue debts and personal bankruptcy. Our medical spending per person is double that of other countries’, but fully half the treatments are ineffective or harmful. Immense, predatory industries such as angioplasty and coronary artery bypass surgery victimize us. These procedures cause complications and deaths, but few patients survive even a day longer. Most back and endoscopic knee surgeries are equally worthless. Seventy percent of us are on prescriptions, and 20 percent take over five. One in six uses psychiatric medicine, which commonly causes irreversible brain damage and premature death. Millions are now addicted to prescription opioids. Fifty-thousand people die each year from overdoses. The FDA allows big Pharma to falsify the studies required to patent drugs. These corporations hire armies of ghostwriters to stuff websites and medical journal articles with marketing lies. Finding the truth is now nearly impossible. But all this gets overlooked as the companies pay billions of dollars in criminal settlements nearly every year. Although money short-circuits everyone’s integrity, patients and doctors can still prevail. Learn the system, and you can too.WWW.RobertYohoAuthor.comDISCLOSURES AND LEGAL DISCLAIMER These are my opinions based on years of training and reading the medical literature, but I could be wrong about any of it. I am not making recommendations about anyone’s individual medical care. Since I retired from practice and resigned my medical license, I could not treat you, anyway. This should assure you that my conflicts of interest are minimal. I had a fantastic career, and I was initially sad to end it. But I was relieved that I was no longer responsible for patients and had a small part of my life left to research and write full time. I make no guarantees. Your providers are the only ones who can be responsible for your care and advise about your treatment. The information here is just a starting point. You must make your own decisions after you learn all you can. The doctors that I mention are used only as examples, and I am not specifically recommending any of them. I have no financial relationship with any caregiver or institution, nor have I received funding from anyone. No-one makes money on books like these—if there are profits, I will donate them to a worthy cause.
