Interesting to say the least.  I assume you've never been vaccinated for anything, ever been to a dentist or ever taken aspirin, ibprofen or other common medications like the pill or something.  I mean the only reason to go to med school and become a doctor is because you want to make money and have no real interest in helping people.  I'm skeptical of pretty much everyone but I've always felt I could trust doctors because I've never been put on anything long term, maybe I'm crazy.

It's good to be skeptical of drugs that you need to take everyday for a long duration (or many medications at once) because they only reduce the pain, change your mood etc. because that isn't a fix it's just patching something up temporarily.  I just think you are oversimplifying this, but maybe you have good reason to do so, in my experience I've never had a problem with my doctor, but of course it's different for everyone.

I actually haven't, and proud of it. I'm sure I was vaccinated as an infant but the doctors aren't making any money off me. All I do is get cavities filled when they arise, and I take very good care of my teeth so that rarely happens.

No matter how sick I am, I don't pop a pill or go to the doctor. Ever.


Ok... I'll play this game. Ahem...

How could you say something so terrible, not all drugs are bad, and a doctors primary responsibility is to help the sick not to make money, ect...

Yes it is terrible, and I will say it, because it is true, and Truth is often not beautiful. A system that holds up doctors and lawyers as the epitome of moneymaking... Who is this supposed to attract? The charitable? The magnanimous? The generous, the selfless? The caring? ...Or the greedy?

Solution: Salary Cap for the medical industry, excluding cosmetic surgery, which is a luxury. Government subsidies for medical school, coupled with government placement in a low-paying medical position. You drop out, you owe the money back. You refuse more than two positions, you owe the money back. Otherwise, you continue to work in your field, you help people, and the money for school was a gift. If needed, run low-priced medical training facilities just for this purpose. One could even make part of the requirements for the gift of free school to undertake at least some teaching afterward, making the endeavour possibly pay for itself.

Only people who want to help others will become doctors and psychiatrists.
