    Regarding the Insurance industries ability to profit and insure the health and welfare of the Society we need to fully debate this I think !
    Why Women In China Do Not Get Breast Cancer? And there is a connection to Men’s Prostate Cancer too ! The difference between the rate of contracting cancer is amazing between the USA and China !!!!!

     

    Should the Cost of Healthcare factor in a Study of this Cost to the Public Entitlement such as how we calculate the cost of Medicare and Obamacare ?

     

    Is it reasonable to call for a further study into this and its effects on our healthcare costs and emotional and mental effects as well that overall cost our healthcare industry more and increase the costs on the Insurance industry ?
