Profit From Tech That Freezes Fat Away / Companies / Healthcare Sector

Michael A. Robinson writes: Five years ago, I quit drinking.

I did so not because I had a problem, but in order to shed some weight. And I was lucky – after I stopped drinking, the pounds just seemed to melt away.

I know most folks aren't that fortunate. That's why dieting and exercise in the United States is a $60.5 billion industry.

Healthcare Stocks to Benefit from Growing Obesity Concerns / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: It’s headline news: America is getting bigger around the waistline and that means that there’s a greater potential for higher healthcare issues down the road—which isn’t a good sign for a healthcare system that is already struggling. (Maybe the government should offer monetary incentives, such as tax credits, for those who join gyms or pursue other healthy alternatives.)

Even though America is struggling with obesity, Americans realize the issues and consequencesthat go along with obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.

Michael A. Robinson writes: When Minghao, a 12-year old Chinese boy, was playing soccer earlier this year, the seemingly healthy player had no idea he was on the cusp of devastating news.

During the game, he headed the ball; it was a simple maneuver regularly seen throughout any match. The next day Minghao (a pseudonym) woke up stiff, sore, and with a severe aching in his neck.

All Crazy Now – Mental Healthcare In The UK / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Andrew_McKillop

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Returning to the UK, more exactly Scotland after many years in France I could call this a move from TSD Land to PTSD Land and the facts and figures back that claim. France like all other aging or mature democracies such as the UK is struggling with the unstoppable growth of Altzheimer's disease victims, with the curve suggesting the incidence of this disease will be claiming 750 000 new victims per year by the 2020s. Also having a fast-growing (by EU standards) population and a growing number of childhood cancer victims, as well as adult victims, the French national health spending implications are somber, but what happens to surviving victims of Altzheimer's disease, the treatement of which is improving and extending life expectancy of victims? In Britain, a UK Medical Research Council report of late October provides some of the answers.

Obamacare Is Not a Revolution, It Is Mere Evolution / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: MISES

Roger McKinney writes: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act focused the attention of Americans on government regulation as few issues have. However, they should have paid attention decades earlier because states have been eating away like termites at freedom in the healthcare insurance market for decades. The PPACA adds little to existing state regulations. States began dictating to insurance companies what to cover, whom to cover, when to cover them and how much they could charge in the 1950s. Massachusetts, home of Romneycare, the template for Obamacare, enacted the first state mandate in 1956 requiring insurers to cover mentally and physically handicapped children.[1]

Home Healthcare Cuts Threaten 500,000 Jobs and Female-Owned Businesses / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: DeviantInvestor

By Dennis Miller

That title wouldn’t make for much of a campaign slogan, and yet, it’s the natural outcome of one particular politician’s promise. As the editor of a retirement-focused newsletter, most of the notes I receive about the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare, are first-person accounts of how a reader’s change in coverage or cost is affecting his finances. These (mostly sad) stories prompted several discussions with Andy Mangione, vice president of government relations of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). Andy serves as the lead legislative and government contact for AMAC in Washington, DC. He’s also responsible for national grassroots outreach and developing strategic partnerships.

Medical Tech Shifts from High Gear into Overdrive / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: TLSReport

Rapid growth in the medical device industry and changes in the regulatory environment have propelled valuations in the medtech sector to the high end of the range. But new technologies create new investment opportunities.

A Clear Way to Profit from a Graying Population / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Money_Morning

Ernie Tremblay writes: The Baby Boom generation, which includes everyone born from 1946 through 1964, is now entering retirement age (65) at a rate of 10,000 per day. That demographic wave is so big that in 2010, the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) predicted the elderly population in this country would double to about 71 million by 2030.

That presents a huge opportunity for bioscience investors. Here's why.

The New Normal of Healthcare Spending / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

A rather interesting shockwave came across the newsfeeds this week. I was actually doing a TV interview when the host announced that GDP was down 2.9% for the first quarter. There was not much else I could do but note that that was a really bad, ugly, terrible, not very good number. But I had no real basis, without any facts in front of me, by which to understand why the revision was so extreme. Sure, we were all expecting a pretty large revision, but what we got was the worst decline in five years and the largest downward revision since recordkeeping began. Later, a quick perusal of the data on the BLS website revealed the culprits: exports and healthcare spending.

A warm thank you to Dr. Vliet for carving out time in her busy schedule to chat with us today.

Piercing the Medical Guild - A Failed US Healthcare System Held Hostage / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Stephen_Merrill

Even in our crisis ridden world, the healthcare sector in the United States tops the list of present-day economic catastrophes. 

According to figures issued by the World Bank for 2011, healthcare expenditures in the United States, astonishingly, consumed 17.9% of the gross domestic product.  By comparison, healthcare spending in Canada was 11.2% of the economy, in Japan 9.3% and in Britain 9.3%.  The proportion of healthcare spending in the US just about doubles the average figure for other major nations.

Cell Pouch System - Dramatic Diabetes Breakthrough in 2014? / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Mills

In a person with diabetes, the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas are attacked by the immune system and destroyed, this leads to a deficiency of insulin and high blood sugar (glucose).

People with insulin-dependent diabetes (all of type-1 and about 27 percent of type-2 diabetics) lack the necessary amount of insulin in their bloodstreams. This can, and often does lead to irreversible damage to their hearts, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, skin, feet and hearing.

Healthcare Revolution - The Road to a New Medical Order / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

There is no doubt that the single most contentious topic I can bring up in a small group discussion or speech is the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. You can feel the tension rise, as everyone has an opinion they want to express – most of them based essentially on preconceived philosophical positions, nearly all of which can be can seen through their own eyes as reasonable and consistent with civilized behavior. And the facts that can be trotted out to support their positions, pro and con, could fill up a document almost as long as the original 2,300+ page bill. I have avoided writing about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for a variety of reasons but primarily because it is so difficult for us to get our heads around the economic implications.

Obamacare Bust a Buying Opportunity for Stock Market Investors? / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: Obamacare is here after the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in March 2010. The Act dictates that all Americans, poor and rich, will need to have some form of insurance coverage.

Americans can select the appropriate level for them from the four levels of coverage—bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. The actual coverage in each plan is the same, with the difference being the deductable you have to pay. Moving from the bronze level to the platinum level, the deductable declines but the initial amount paid for the plan increases. Some Americans may be eligible for government assistance, depending on their financial situation, of course.

Reasons Why Obamacare Is Going to Ruin Your Medical Care… and Your Life / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Casey_Research

By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

Of course you've heard of "liar loans"—in the heyday of subprime mortgages, unscrupulous lenders handed out mortgages to practically everyone with a pulse. "So you're saying you make $100,000 a year? Great, check this box titled 'McMansion.'"

We all know how this charade ended. Now Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D., an acclaimed expert on the subject of Obamacare, warns that the delay of the employer mandate by one year will force Americans into a single-payer system, raising insurance premiums and encouraging "liar subsidies" that might prove fiscally devastating. Not to mention that under the new health care system, you may well end up dead…
