I will argue in this series of articles that the US federal government should get out of health care. I claim that the following offices are harmful and we would be better off without them: The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that decides which medical treatments are approved for manufacture.
I also believe the following private organizations are generally harmful: The American Medical Association, the American Cancer Society, and Blue Cross Insurance Co. I made such claims in my 2013 book Consider the Lilies: A Review of 18 Cures for Cancer and Their Legal Status. The current “health care debate” has occasioned a restatement of these ideas.
