Big Bariatric

Like Big Cancer, Big Bariatric is going to be the next big profit center for the medical-pharmaceutical establishment. The medical fraudsters have been pushing the pseudo-science of bypass gastric surgery upon ignorant Americans who are desperate to lose weight as a one-stop solution – covered by medical insurance – as opposed to any real decisions to move voluntarily forward with lifestyle changes. I see huge, ugly billboards all over the Detroit freeways, advertising for brand new, hospital-based bariatric centers all over the metro area. These eyesores are graced with gigantic block letters that scream at you, unlike the creative and artistic billboards that advertise for market products and services. The last Bariatric blemish I saw was placed in between a McDonald’s billboard advertising $1 sodas and a billboard advertising a new mega-millions heart center.

One billboard in Indiana advances the sure fact that obesity is “a disease, not a decision.” Hmmm, I wonder where this “disease” was 100, 60, or even 30 years ago? And no, profits haven’t corrupted healthcare in America – the corrupt alliance between Big Government and the self-serving, omnipotent medical establishment has corrupted health care. Like Big Cancer, Big Bariatric will capitalize enormously on ignorance, lies, myths, fraud, and professional negligence.  Follow me on Twitter @karendecoster.

    Big private equity firms are getting on the bandwagon with Big Bariatric and big cancer. Today in Boston this announcement was made. I find that there is something smelling here when a NY private equity which already handles a chain of hospitals in the Boston area, is proposing a $3.3 billion deal to add to their portfolio, some major supermarkets like Star market, Shaws, and SuperValue. Hmmm, how would that work…owning markets and the hospitals that will take in patients getting sick on the food supply.

    Enquiring minds want to know. Gleaned from today’s Boston Globe——-

    “Shaw’s and its sister supermarket brand Star Market are part of a larger proposed $3.3 billion deal that could leave the local chains owned by a group of private equity firms that include Cerberus Capital Management, the firm that controls the Steward Hospital Health Care System hospital chain in Boston. The parent of the Shaw’s and Star Market chain of roughly 170 stores, Supervalu Inc., has agreed to sell several of its supermarket chains across the country to an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management LP, the New York private equity firm that controls the Steward hospital chain.”
