Medical, Inc. - Exposing the Modern Medical Monopoly

Just have read in Dynamic Chiropractic, that an interesting documentary will be released in March of 2012 called Medical, Inc., which aims at opening more eyes to the benefits of chiropractic and other forms of natural health care.

The movie reveals the unseen tactics of these "influencers" of modern medicine, in an investigation that leads to the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and reveals an alarming portrait of deception and criminality. It begs some of the questions:

- Is much of what we "know" about modern medicine just slick marketing from companies that profit when we're in pain (or by putting us in pain)?

- Why aren't we being told about the successes of natural therapies?

- Why do so many people think chiropractors are "quacks", nutritional supplements a waste of money and acupuncture a fringe therapy?

All very interesting questions for us to ponder and make an opinion on don't you think?
