Despite what the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare says, the health of Australians is getting worse.
You know that because the medical budget continues to escalate at more than 10% a year.
The Commonwealth Government is allocating nearly 20% of its budget to protect the medical industry. The States are spending around 25%. That's why there's no money for infrastructure and people have to pay to drive on roads they pay for every time they fill up their tanks. It's time people woke up to the fact that you can't have a free run into the hospital and a free ride on a tollway.
Meanwhile surgeries are pack to the rafters with people who are either given poor advice and keep coming back or people who are given good advice and keep coming back.
Spare a though for the good clients of poor doctors. They take their (junk) medicine in good faith. Their condition worsens. They keep coming back.
Spare a though for the doctors with poor customers who don't take their doctor's advice and keep coming back.
If doctors refused to write junk medical prescriptions for people suffering from personally-induced metabolic, musculo-skeletal and psychological dysfunctions and told customers who don't listen to them, 'I can't help you, you have to help yourself', then maybe we'd start to take more notice of them.
But they don't.
On the track

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and help yourself to stay in exceptionally good nick.
