Lousy nutritional habits, a "treatment vs. prevention" medical industry mindset, and the high cost of paying for prescription drugs are all merging to create a health care "perfect storm" that will, if left unattended, swallow the health care industry whole and take a lot of Americans with it.
Healthcare futurist and medical product inventor Nicholas J. Webb, explores seven key predictions regarding the future-and the reality-of America's current health care system. Based on current studies, The Cost of Being Sick follows today's trends of their logical finales.
