Speaking only on a personal basis, my very fine cardiologist didn't cure me in over 25 years of treatment. I cured myself in about five by losing weight, 50 pounds of fat! My stepfather didn't take care of himself and by the time he saw a doctor it was too late. He didn't regret it! He placed his bets and took his chances. I believe that individual choice, freedom, liberty, trumps efficiency.


I'm glad you're "cured". But most people don't improve their health by ignoring their doctor's advice, or refusing to see one if they're ill.

This is kind of like the Powerball winner who is now trying to sell lottery tickets as a retirement plan.
