I was talking today with someone who owns and runs a senior facility. They care for those who need assistance during the day only. I started to verbally share with her information about a study where Alzheimer's patients benefited greatly from a regime that included a gluten free diet.
Click here for more information about this study.
Want to know the first thing she said? - "I don't want to hear that; it would kill my business!" This was followed by a short laugh to make it appear that she was joking.
haha - not funny!
And sorry, but if you were truly more concerned about the human beings you were caring for than the income they provide, I'm thinking more questions would be asked.
Yup - I'm mad right now. I'm very mad. She just stated what I believe is so true with more than we will ever know - Disease IS business.
Shame on those who don't lead the sick to answers that may be available in order to benefit their own financial gain.
