Food for Thought: Is Health Care Actually Disease Care?

Updated: Jul 11, 2023

The Food for Thought article series is now available on the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies website. This series explores the truths revealed in Whole by Dr. Campbell and how these truths play out in our society, health care system and government policy.

Collaboration with CNS

Sia Hurst is the author of the article series entitled Food for Thought . This series is published by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. "This article series is intended to provide thought provoking quotes from the book Whole in order to encourage discussion amongst its readers."


"Let’s be honest, this “health care system” is actually a disease care system. It is not concerned with the root causes of diseases, but only with mitigating their debilitating symptoms. Patients are lulled into a false sense of health and wellness, a lie reinforced when snapshot test results show the patient’s “numbers” within a normal range. But these numbers do not provide a true picture of health inside the body; rather, they are the artificial stabilization achieved by drugs. Maintaining those numbers requires that patients continue their “treatments” indefinitely. When expanding profit and increasing return customers are the goals, and the entire health care system is geared toward those efforts, the increasing use of prescription drugs begins to make a lot of sense."
