Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

What Jill Stein is, What Jill Stein Isn’t.

Doing a little bit of reading up on Dr.Jill Stein, and what she’s saying in general.

Looking at what was published by Cancer Dot Gov in March of 2016, cancer mortality rates have decreased by 1.4 to 2% across men women and children.  This indicates that research for treating cancer is steadily improving.

The article does go on to say however that there were 14 million new cases of cancer in 2012, with 8.2 million instances of cancer related deaths worldwide.  The number of new cancer cases will rise to 22 million within the next two decades.

According to the World Health Organization, the number of new cases is expected to rise by 70% over the next 2 decades.  A 70% increase is is 23.8 million.  So the findings are similar between Cancer Dot Gov and the World Health Organization.  February 2015.

Dr. Jill Stein believes that we can do better. She believes that we as a society, are getting sick because of environmental toxicity.  Smoking, diet, lack of exercise, radiation, pollution, all of these contribute to cancer.

Air pollution has grown by 8% globally in the past 5 years, according to the World Health Organization.  This was in May 2016.

By switching to renewable energies, and focusing on the environment, Dr. Jill Stein believes we can lower the rate of increase of pollution.

So this makes sense from a doctor’s point of view.

Jill Stein has been criticized for being against vaccines. But reading up on what Stein actually says, she is pro-vaccine.   One of the reasons why this attack vector was chosen by her critics is because she mentioned three words: “predatory economic policies.”

When you go to the hospital to treat a broken leg, you can probably expect a bill charging you anywhere from $100 to $10,000. Ridiculous right?  If you’re insured, the insurance absorbs the cost, the hospital claims the full $10,000.  Where does the insurance company get the $10,000?

If you’re not insured, the hospital bill will put you into debt, the interest goes to the banks, then we start a whole different discussion on fractional reserve banking.   (Fractional reserve banking is a global epidemic that is equal to or even worse than cancer.)

Jill Stein wants to fix these things.

In the case regarding homeopathy, this is what Jill had to say:

For homeopathy, just because something is untested doesn’t mean it’s safe. By the same token, being “tested” and “reviewed” by agencies tied to big pharma and the chemical industry is also problematic. There’s a lot of snake-oil in this system. We need research and licensing boards that are protected from conflicts of interest. They should not be limited by arbitrary definitions of what is “natural” or not.

Her party does support alternative medicine however:

The Green Party supports a wide range of health care services, including conventional medicine, as well as the teaching, funding and practice of complementary, integrative and licensed alternative health care approaches.

So that’s a good thing. Alternative medicine, is defined by big pharma as practices that they didn’t give the rubber stamp to.  Alternative medicine, to everybody else means more research into healthcare, so that we don’t get gouged by the banks, the insurance companies, and the people who enforce predatory economic policies.

 

That’s all I’ve got for now on Jill Stein, but if people are interested, I’ll post more about her.  Thanks for reading.
