creating demand

“The  war  against  disease  has  given  us, amongst other things, antibiotics. At first, they were spectacularly successful, seemingly enabling us to win the war against infectious diseases. Now many experts  agree  that  the  widespread  and  indiscriminate  use  of  antibiotics  has created a time bomb and that antibiotic-­resistant strains of bacteria, so-called super bugs, will in all likelihood bring about a reemergence of those diseases and possibly epidemics.
According to the  Journal  of  the American Medical  Association,  medical treatment is the third ­leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer in the United States.  Homeopathy and Chinese medicine are  two  examples  of  possible  alternative  approaches  to  disease  that  do  not treat the illness as an enemy and therefore do not create new diseases.”
