America now has over a billion health care visits a year, over 55 million (5.5%) have significant complications of care, and over a million complications (0.1%) are fatal — the hidden cause of over 40% of U.S. 2.4 million deaths at all ages from all reported causes. We know this, because when doctors go on strike, deaths at all ages from all reported causes drop from 17% to 60% in less than 10 days and remain low till the strike ends. Israel has had the most doctor strikes, and morticians there hope for a quick end to the strikes or go out of business. Medical and surgical care have never improved the health of any population anywhere in the world. All health professions have a negative association with community health — except nursing, the only health profession associated with better community health status.
