Weve got to get deeper than just these superficial fixes, as important as they are..."
We dont have a healthcare system in the United States, we have a sickness care system in the United States. We just wait til somebody gets sick and then we talk about whos going to pay for the treatment and how theyre going to be treated. What we need to talk about why so many Americans have unnecessary chronic illnesses, so many more compared to other countries. And that gets back not just into Big Pharma, not just health insurance companies, it has to do with chemical policies, it has to do with environmental policies, it has to do with food policies, it has to do with drug policies

But I don't see how being pro-Abortion and supplying healthcare for illegal immigrants at the expense of citizens already here, promoting gender dysphoria to young children, among other destructive policies, is 'harnessing Love' as she puts it.
Agreed, that our chemical/additive/gmo laden food supply has much to do with why there’s so much illness in this country,
All Americans are demanding that our Federal Government implement a Food Policy. Obersturmbahnfurerhers in McDonalds and Piggly Wiggley
Never heard of this gal she is avocating for our already out of control government to go way out of control.
I don’t trust the government to do that much better than Monsanto I guess...but it’s worth bringing up that the healthcare debate ignores the root causes of the health crises facing our population.
Nobody brings up LOOTING. List of GRIEVANCES! Happy 4th!
LOCK THEM ALL UP.
Stalin had a Food Policy. So did Pol Pot.
The mayor should be held responsible for injuries.
No. It's just not. There's lots of science on this and it's not true that either pesticides or GMOs are a health problem. GMOs in particular are just different varieties of crops, and they aren't something to be afraid of.
What is responsible for so much illness is the kind of food we eat, and the fact that for decades now the government has gotten its definition of a healthy diet almost exactly reversed from reality.
Her Intergalactic Emminence
I have a food policy too.
I like to eat, whatever, whenever and however I want and woe be to whoever tries to interfere with it.
You’re first paragraph is mostly bull.
Your, not you’re.
Sure. The problem is not with the system, but with the ordinary folk. They DON’T do what is needed to stay healthy. Obviously this clown and the left in general is ready and willing to use the coercive power of government to control what people eat and drink.
This is an honest question: are you in favor of the government placing restrictions on what you are allowed to buy and ingest as food?
Every single agricultural product you eat has been genetically modified. It has been that way for a long time. Even so, humans, on average, live longer today than at any other point in history.
Monsanto makes it possible to feed billions of people who may have otherwise starved to death, or lived their short lives on the edge of starvation. You know nothing about the topic, but here you are asking that people who feed people be implicated in the court of law. Norman Borlaug would just smile, shake his head, say "bless your heart" and then go back to saving billions by genetically engineering our food supply. As for me, I'll just call you a fool.
Your statement also assumes that illnesses are not cause by bacteria, viruses, etc. at all, but rather from what people eat or don't eat. And That is THE singularly MOST backward, non-scientific nonsense, about diseases, that has been proffered since the "treatment for humors", back several 10p0s of years ago!
How many cases of Polio are reported today?
How many people are dying, in droves, from pneumonia, TB,smallpox,measles, chickenpox,whopping cough, and the flu today?
And what explains the fact that people are living MUCH longer lives, since according to you and the NEW AGE Moron Williams?
And THE worst kind, to boot.
I dare her to say the words “fat people”.
I dare her!
It is only _because_ we have conquered all those dreaded diseases that diet starts to matter.
If you were going to die as a child or young adult from some dread disease then food is of course irrelevant.
The reality is we are all going to die of something—my grandma lived in excellent health until her brain just stopped working—at age 107.
Her favorite food was caviar.
So, I guess we could claim the Russkies poisoned her. ;-)
