This scam is not much different than blood letting.
Don't know how it is in Sweden, but here in the US a significant part of the elderly population require a lot of care. Of course they are on multiple drugs. They need social workers, food delivery, housekeeping, and of course a variety of appointments with doctors, physical therapists, etc.
We spend over 16% of our private economy on medical care. That doesn't count the housekeepers, etc. It's the seniors who are getting much of the care.
Fast forward 20 years. What happens if the middle aged people who are just 30 or 40 start needing care sort of like the seniors of today do?
This level of care nor anything close to it just can't be sustained.
Personally, I use natural remedies, but the vast majority are still stuck in the prescription drug mentality. Unless there is a big change real fast, bigger and bigger trouble is head our way with each additional pill that is taken each day.
IOW, we won't need to wait 20 years for the doom. A year from now, the situation will be worse than it is today. The year after that it is likely to be even worse, and so on year after year, and day after day.
