The future of the public's health, 2004

The future of the public's health: vision, values, and strategies. LO Gostin, JI Boufford, RM Martinez. Health Aff (Millwood) 2004 Jul-Aug;23(4):96-107. "This vision, much like its international counterpart, pits those advocating on behalf of an expansive public health philosophy grounded in fundamental socioeconomic and cultural transformation against critics in and outside of the public health community charging that such an ethos moves far beyond public health’s conventionally understood purview." [SIC. In fact, it's a war of cultural genocide waged by the global elites against the people, using their control of supposed health institutions to deliberately commit scientific fraud.] Claims that "The cost-effectiveness of prevention and health promotion efforts for an employer’s workforce and the value of corporate action to promote broader community health have been demonstrated," based on a 1996 paper of that infamous failure, managed care. "Recommendation 7: Public health agencies should create incentives for (and, if necessary, regulate) businesses to strengthen health promotion and disease and injury prevention for their employees and communities. Government should provide incentives through the tax code and conditional spending to encourage the private sector to engage in health-promoting activities. Monetary incentives can greatly affect corporate behavior. There is also a role for governmental regulation to ensure that businesses act responsibly. Thus, the state must strengthen regulations relating to occupational health and safety, sanitary food and living conditions, and the environment, among other areas." [Workplace health fascism.] "Recommendation 8: The media should increase the time devoted to public service announcements and contribute to a well-informed public on matters of health." [The media have engaged in a Nazi Germany-like campaign of lies, deceit and defamations for the last six decades!] "Recommendation 10: State and local governments should engage in land-use planning to encourage healthier lifestyles and habitats. Government has available numerous tools to make the physical environment more conducive to healthy living: economic incentives to encourage green spaces and recreational facilities; building and housing codes to reduce toxic exposures; zoning to increase availability of wholesome foods and products; and school requirements to serve healthy foods and promote exercise among students."[Tear down neighborhoods to destroy the peoples' social fabric; gigantic tax-funded handouts to the health fascists' cronies; war of cultural genocide by regulations, as in smoking bans.] "As the main proponent of population health in society, the public health community must call attention to the "upstream" causes of morbidity and premature death and must propose a broad range of social, economic, and behavioral tools needed to make populations healthier," citing J. Michael McGinnis, a charlatan who is guilty of the most flagrant scientific frauds who is treated like God by the so-called "public health community."

Gostin 2004 / Health Affairs 2004 full article

The Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) released a specious compendium of supposedly "proven" community health fascism programs. This featured the Pawtucket Heart Health Program, a mass media campaign and community programs inflicted on 71,000 hapless pawns, which purported to find that "Five years into the intervention, the risks for cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease had decreased by 16 percent among members of the randomly selected intervention population." This and the other worthless programs hype their supposed impact on the basis of a priori presumptions, rather than measuring any actual reduction in events. They also ignore the fact that heart disease death rates have fallen steadily since 1961, and at the same rate among smokers as among non-smokers. The whole lot of those studies put together don't equal the government's $625 million randomized controlled dietary modification trial on 165,000 women, which found no effects of fruits and vegetables or reduction in fats on cardiovascular disease.
