Our health is bought by Wall Street and the big health sell out has happened with our help.

 

If we shop at big box stores or watch mainstream TV, for example, we willingly expose ourselves to some of the best influence that money can buy. We may think we have freedom of choice when, in fact, we participate in and fund (through our purchases) a process that allows our choices to be constrained for us.

No one believes she’s an easy mark. But there’s a good reason that drug companies spend like mad (24.3% of total revenues) to sell us hard. It works. Americans fill 4 billion prescriptions per year costing $320 billion (excluding OTC meds and vaccines). Since 30% of us opt out, we’re talking about 18 prescriptions — not pills! — per Rx-popper.

Now what if I told you that Americans spent more on healthcare ($3.8 trillion!) and less on food than any other country in the world? Would that make you curious? Would you wonder if there was a relationship? Would you follow the money where it took you, inside the controversy and to the front lines of the battle? Would you take on vaccines and GMOs and place a bullseye on Big Food and Big Pharma?

Let’s take a successful filmmaker with an independent streak and a passion for telling the truth. He starts scratching beneath the surface and becomes engrossed, amazed, and then completely pissed off. It turns out he’s a guy after our own hearts. He does something about it. He makes a movie called Bought and it has been quite a trip. Don’t miss this inside look into the making and the telling of the hopeful and heart-breaking truth about America’s health.

    Great work Louise. Thank you… to you, Jeff, the doctors, scientists and honest people willing to fight the David v Goliath story. The truth will set you free. Thank you for all you do.

    I donated $100 to the campaign a while back and if I am correct I should get a copy of movies for free. This has not happened. Can you help me?

    AT 75, I RECENTLY HAD A MINOR CARDIAC EVENT. I WAS HELICOPTERED FROM MY SUMMER HOME TO SCOTTSDALE, AZ- A 30 MINUTE FLIGHT—THE BILL WAS $42,000 DOLLARS!.OVERNIGHT IN THE HOSPITAL, THAT BILL WAS $39,000 DOLLARS. OTHER THAN AN ELEVATED ENZYME , NOTHING WAS FOUND WRONG. RX ? AN ASPIRIN PER DAY, WHICH IS STUPID AND RIDICULOUS. I HAD A DREAM SUGGESTING IT WAS A NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEM, SAW MY D.C., AND IN 30 MINUTES I WAS A NEW PERSON. WONDERFUL , MODERN MEDICINE, AND THEY CALL US QUACKS! WILLIAM RISLEY, D.C.

    We had a 6 week exclusive distribution period with Yekra online. It just ended. DVDs are being replicated now, and shipping will start mid-December. We’re excited to get to the DVD window, that’s where we actually make sales!

    • Louise Kuo Habakus

      If you ordered the DVD, they’re shipping them out in mid-Dec. I imagine they’ll email you for the shipping address. If you ordered the download, then you should be able to do that on your own. More details coming, I’m sure. Thanks for buying the movie!
