Man-made or synthetic chemicals are prevalent in our everyday lives. These chemicals, which include pharmaceutical drugs, food substitutes or additives, processed or modified foods, pesticides, and household chemicals, just to name a few, are promoted incessantly. Aggressive promotion, especially in the case of pharmaceutical drugs, is no accident and it has led to an excessive reliance on synthetic chemicals in the United States. How does that reliance impact the ability of our families and friends to lead a healthy lifestyle? How does it affect your ability to make decisions related to the wellness and care of your family? How does it impact the US healthcare system and the economy overall? This book examines these questions and issues through the lens of the author's personal journey into a healthcare system designed to treat symptoms of disease with synthetic chemicals. The system, promoted and sustained by both big government and the companies that create and manufacture synthetic chemicals, not only impacts the physical health and wellness of your family but also the financial health of the United States. The book explores the roles, drivers and agendas of all parties involved and the ramifications of the present system on society. The book also explores innovative ideas and options for transforming the system in a financially sustainable way that will better meet the health and wellness needs of families in the 21st century.
