Back in December on KSKA, Line One host Dr. Thad Woodard did an interview with filmmaker and Oregon Emergency Physician, Dr. Paul Hochfeld. In Health, Money and Fear, a film about our Health Care System, directed, produced and edited by Dr. Hochfeld, he insists our health care system should be more about health and less about profits. Why does it cost so much? What does it say about us? And what can we do about it?
Frontline, on PBS, also did an excellent hour-long
review of healthcare systems around the world. The
program follows T.R. Reid to five different countries
while he tries to determine why the US is number 1 in
healthcare spending but ranks 37th in quality. You
can watch the whole movie on Frontline's homepage.
Our traditional ideas about what is possible as we
age are ALL outdated. Watch in this video as a
90-year-old Okinowan woman climbs trees.
If your goal is to live a full, healthy life into your 80's
and 90's - the choices you make right now will
determine if you can fulfill this dream. Check out this
BBC documentary on longevity.
