      The Cost of Being Sick

      Healthcare futurist and medical product inventor Nicholas J. Webb, explores seven key predictions regarding the future—and the reality—of America’s current health care system. Based on current studies, The Cost of Being Sick follows today’s trends to their logical finales. Avoiding this imminent crash, however, can be done. With health benefits slipping while the cost of treatments continues to escalate all in the face of poor health routines that feed the disease process, there is only one possible course of action. Each of us must accept the responsibility for our own health—not only for ourselves, but for our children as well.

      And here’s the silver-lining: Not only does The Cost of Being Sick expose the cause of our failing health-care system, but it also presents the cure. And the cure promises more than just relief from the problems we are facing. This cure also promises a better lifestyle and a strengthened financial position.

      So what exactly is “the cost of being sick?” The price is more than you will want to pay—but it is a bill you can avoid.
