Excessive alcohol use is responsible for over 95,000 deaths in the United States each year or 261 deaths per day. These deaths shorten the lives of those who die by an average of nearly 29 years, for a total of 2.8 million years of potential life lost. It is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States and cost the nation $ 249 billion in 2010. See more here from the CDC.
There have been around 600K deaths from Covid (some would argue this number) in the past two years, having around 100K deaths a year from excess alcohol, it would only take six years to have the same level of deaths between Covid and overuse. of alcohol. The Covid “pandemic” is a once in a lifetime event. Deaths from alcohol overuse are every year. It could be argued that excessive alcohol use could be considered worse.
There are medications that can help with excessive alcohol abuse. Here are a few here.
- to choke
- Benzodiazepines etc.
Given the broadly similar risk profile in terms of the number of deaths between Covid and excessive alcohol consumption, perhaps we should start calling on the government to enforce the use of these alcohol overuse treatments for all Americans. Sort of a new medical ban on alcohol – all for your own good and for others around you.
- All federal employees, including the military, will be required to undergo treatment for excessive alcohol use.
- Companies with more than 100 employees will be required to undergo treatment for excessive alcohol use.
- Alcohol passports will be issued to prove that you have taken your alcohol abuse treatment for entry into public and private places and transportation systems.
One might think that people choose to drink excessively, but no one chooses to take Covid. However, many in the medical / scientific community would disagree with you. Alcoholism is classified as an addiction involving neurobiology and one’s addiction is classified as a disease. Before assuming that medical bans would not imply government scrutiny, consider that Medicare, Medicaid, and VA comprise over 40% of the population and are growing.
Follow this alcohol ban by thinking further and you will run into a snap in penalizing and regulating obesity, diabetes, hypertension and more. Where would be the stopping point for government scrutiny of personal health decisions? Who can decide what constitutes a bad health decision? Are we confident that the government will not go beyond the limits of absurdity? Think about it. How long would it take before personal choices such as owning a gun, choosing the right domestic couple relationship, or a political ideology labeled as extremist, fall into the category of a negative health decision?
Perhaps some have forgotten the era of prohibition in the United States. It was a national constitutional ban on the production, import, transport and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933. Prohibitionists first attempted to end the alcoholic beverage trade during the 19th century.
The movement was led by Pietist Protestants, aimed at healing what they saw as a sick society plagued by alcohol-related problems such as alcoholism, family violence and saloon-based political corruption. So it’s not just about controlling the drunk, but all the people they can influence.
Big brother, the nanny state – there seems to be this desire for people in elite positions, especially in the medical field, to control mass populations – for our own good of course. We are not even talking about the conflict of interest in financial terms.
The third cause of death in the United States that most doctors don’t want you to know about, see here. A recent Johns Hopkins study states that more than 250,000 people in the United States die each year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers go as high as 440,000. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.
“Too often,” says a medical expert, “the health system silences people around a problem.” Why? Many doctors are reluctant to speculate, but some admit that the answers range from simple ego to losing a patient to another doctor they trust more. Isn’t this what we also see in this Covid “pandemic”?
See Senator Rand Paul skewer the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra precisely on this point. Becerra is a lawyer, not a medical or scientific expert, but he leads the entire health and human services agency. The Covid “pandemic” has unleashed and exposed these narcissistic doctors.
No one is suggesting that because the medical community makes mistakes, we shouldn’t use them. For sure, the benefits outweigh the adverse situations, although the adverse situations are substantial. This was supported by common sense organizations. Patient Safety America lists the three levels in which patients can protect themselves. These include:
- be a wise health care consumer by asking for quality and affordable care for yourself and those you love;
- participating in patient safety leadership through councils, panels and commissions that implement policies and laws; And
- pushing for laws that promote safer care, transparency and accountability.
Unfortunately these principles have not been applied to the Covid “pandemic”.
Yes, it was satirical to say that we need to rethink Prohibition with a new medical Prohibition on alcohol. But when government policy merges with medical edicts, the result is a slippery slope: beware of medical tyranny. The point of principle is that people must take responsibility and have medical sovereignty over their health care and not the government.
