In recent weeks, as the tenor in the health care debate has become more contentious, and the passage of some far-reaching legislation now more assured, I felt, as a physician, and one who practices what others consider an “alternative” nutritional approach to cancer, obligated to investigate the issue myself. I felt this way because any health care legislation, regardless of its final form, will inevitably influence my practice of medicine, and will affect my many loyal patients whose lives in many cases depend on the continued availability of my regimen. So for me, the issues have become of some import directly and personally. Furthermore, I find the rush to pass some sort of health care “reform,” as do others, a sign of more serious dangers looming for our Republic, dangers that I felt needed addressing.
