Not through lack of knowledge, but willful negligence on the part of a profit driven medical system.
Why in 2016 are people getting ill and dying without even knowing what hurt or killed them?
Why do death certificates list cancer, heart attack, cirrhosis when HH was what triggered their demise?
Why, when a simple, inexpensive iron panel could be added back on routine blood work does it remain a hit or miss, doctor’s best judgement call? sign petition here
Why, when the American Medical Association’s own study about iron panel test screening projects a 20 fold increase in detection, leading to 600,000 people annually, being monitored and treated in time to prevent 121 downstream chronic and deadly illnesses in the USA alone – at a cost savings of 500 billion dollars over the next two decades – do tests remain off routine blood work?
In a word; money.
1.There’s no profits in a proven, drug free treatment – therapeutic phlebotomy.
2. There’s a huge profit loss in preventing up to 20 percent of 121 chronic and deadly illnesses, all of which have drug treatments and medical procedures generating billions of dollars in revenues for publicly traded companies in a for profit medical system.
3. There’s no loud, insistent entity on the side of HH detection and treatment… until now. www.ironitout.org sign petition here: sign petition here
Everyone who becomes aware of these facts understands it’s not a medical mystery, but a lack of political will to do the right thing in the face of huge profits, blood money made on the backs of sick and dying people, who have names and dreams and families …. and futures if we rise up together, right this wrong and drag this disorder out of the shadows.
Help us stop criminals in suits marking your family and friends for suffering and death just so they can maximize their stock prices.
