Figures Don’t Lie, But Liars Figure—Medically Speaking

By Catherine J. Frompovich

From very early on in life, everyone learns how important math is, especially that one and one equal two, not three or even two-and-a-half! However, when it comes to statistics and other mathematical markers for business, industry, and even science, numbers sometimes belie the reality of the facts, depending upon who wants to prove what, and to whom.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about the cost of healthcare—or is it sickness care—in the United States, and how it’s been escalating despite the purported advances in medical science and even the outlandish contention that vaccines can help to reduce sickness and its costs by improving, what’s euphemistically called, ‘herd immunity’.

Let’s get one thing accurate: I don’t consider myself—or any person—to be a member of any animal herd. I’m a human being with intelligence and unalienable rights granted by the very act of my being born with those implicit rights every person comes into life with: Life, which includes being able to breathe air, drink water, and eat food to maintain health and bodily functions; liberty—the very essence of freedom, i.e., to be free from control mechanisms by individuals, spouses, family or friends, and most of all, by governments, especially those referred to as dictatorial; and happiness, a state of being that depends upon many contributing factors, which some humans can control and others that we cannot, but definitely impact our very lives, often in ways we always can’t clearly understand or define.

One overarching mechanism affecting everyone in the United States, at least, is bureaucratic control and its dictates, along with an apparent belief that government owns our children, our wealth, and even our bodies! What leads me to such a conclusion? Nothing is more demonstrable than how healthcare with all its ancillary aspects operates with dogmatic and dictatorial force of law, regardless of an individual’s right to self-determination given to him or her as an inherent birthright.


The above is a prelude to juxtapose against just how U.S. citizens are manipulated into demographics that no one could have imagined, especially that healthcare in the USA is now over Three Trillion Dollars a YEAR! And yet, the USA does not have the best healthcare statistics! One would think with that kind of money spent, we’d be the healthiest people on the face of the earth. Not so! Guess who are?

Forbes Magazine ranked Iceland as having the healthiest people in the world! [1] Having visited Iceland for one glorious week in the mid-1980s, I can understand why. Their food back then, at least, was pristine and restaurants were not put out when my late husband and I requested vegetarian meals. They were only too happy to accommodate us with magnificently prepared vegetarian food.

Japan ranked second as the healthiest country, primarily due to its ages-old-diet fashioned around fresh sea vegetables, seafood, rice and veggies. That, no doubt, will change due to Fukushima radiation that has contaminated land and sea, plus the invasion of western culture ‘cuisine’.

Sweden ranked third. Okinawa, a prefecture of Japan, ranked fourth. New Zealand came in fifth, and Sardinia, an autonomous region of Italy, came in sixth. Those were the rankings back in 2012 and reflected healthful living due to long-established eating patterns in those countries. [2]

The USA, as a nation, has one of the most abominable dietary ‘styles’: greasy fast food fare, GMO and processed edibles, and too many unhealthful fats, sugars, and starches with very little fresh vegetables.

In June of 2014, Forbes published “U.S. Healthcare Ranked Dead Last Compared to 10 Other Countries” [3] wherein the following rankings for the top ten countries, according to the Commonwealth Fund, were:

1. United Kingdom
2. Switzerland
3. Sweden
4. Australia
5. Germany & Netherlands (tied)
7. New Zealand & Norway (tied)
9. France
10. Canada
11. United States

The chart below illustrates the per capita costs in 2011 for each of the above 11 countries.

What really gets interesting, I think, is that U.S. healthcare expenditures average $8,508 per person compared with Australia’s $3,800 per person—and both are high-tech countries. The UK spends $3,405 person, but ranks first in every category on the above chart except three! The only ‘high marks’ the U.S. received were a “3 for effective care” and a “4 for patient-centered care”. Interestingly, the UK skunked just about every nation listed except in “Healthy Lives, where it ranked 10.” France ranked No. 1 in Healthy Lives! Ooh-la-la! Having spent some time in most of France, I can attest as to why that is: Food there tastes like nothing back in the USA. When we returned from having spent several weeks in most of France, our taste buds became paralyzed eating fresh-grown U.S. vegetables. The French respect their food, at least when I was there. As far as Healthy Lives, the U.S. ranked 11!

Forbes was keen to point out that Starbucks spends more on healthcare benefits ($300 Million [5]) than it does on coffee beans—ouch!, and General Motors spent more on healthcare benefits [$1,525 per car produced [4]) than steel—unbelievable!

For healthcare costs and statistics for the years 2010 (WHO) and 2011 (OECD), I suggest readers check out Wikipedia’s charts at “List of countries by total healthcare expenditure (PPP) per capita”.

In 2010, U.S. healthcare costs represented 17.6% of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) per WHO on the Wikipedia chart. But take a look at the GDP figures in my next paragraph. Something doesn’t seem to jive! Did healthcare costs go down between 2010 and 2012? I don’t think so! So, what gives with the figures, anyway? Are we being told the mathematical truth? Do figures lie, or liars figure?

According to The Washington Times,

By 2023, health care spending will account for nearly a fifth of annual GDP, at 19.3 percent, up from 17.2 percent in 2012. [6]

Furthermore, the apparent fact is that United States, with its Trillion Dollar healthcare scheme [7], came in at No. 11 when compared to other countries. As a retired consulting nutritionist, I’m embarrassed to have to write that number. But here’s where the figures start to muddy up more than we realize. Study the chart below, which graphically illustrates the number of vaccines that were given to children under 5 years of age AND compares the under-5-years-of-age-mortality-rate from 2009 statistics.

Source: Chart produced by Raymond Obomsawin, PhD, National Aboriginal Health Organization, October 2009

One ironic statistic that jumps off that chart is that of the countries with comparative vaccine schedules, the U.S. had—and probably still has—the highest child mortality rate coinciding with the highest mandated vaccine rate: 36 vaccines that were given to children under 5 years of age in 2009! What’s SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) all about? That seemed to appear more frequently after the vaccine mandates of the 1980s.

Here’s the current CDC vaccine schedule for children up to 6 years of age. Count the number of vaccines given under current ‘recommendations’.

In the above chart, the countries with the lower number of vaccines given to children also had lower child mortality rates. What does that indicate? Was it coincidence? No, I don’t think so.

Can higher child death rate along with highest per capita healthcare spending, plus exorbitant GDP, indicate that the U.S. is doing something terribly wrong with regard to healthcare, and that citizens are NOT benefiting?

Can those very ‘prophylactic’ medical and pharmaceutical mandates for vaccines actually be contributing to higher healthcare costs and poorer healthful lifestyles?

Are vaccines being ‘patient loaded’ on the front end of life [newborns, infants, and toddlers] with U.S. children whose autism rate went from one in 10,000 in the late 1970s to one in 68 or one in 50 [depending upon whose current stats one cites] to ‘patient loading’ the back end of life, senior citizens who had hardly any notable Alzheimer’s disease statistics in 1979 to over 5 million currently?

However, there is something to corroborate the above comment. It’s the statistics per the U.S. CDC for 1979 to 1991that were charted in Figure 2 on page 11 of “Mortality Trends for Alzheimer’s Disease, 1979-91” [9], which shows that in 1979 for seniors aged 65 to 74 years old, there was 1.0 Alzheimer’s death per 100,000 population. [7]

Table B of that very same report states that in 1990—only 10 to 11 years later, 65 to 74 year old Alzheimer’s deaths were 10.2 per 100,000 population. That’s over ten times an increase in Alzheimer’s disease in a decade.

If we look at the chart in Figure 2 for 1991 for 85 and older persons, there were under 200 deaths, if I interpreted the line graph correctly. Table B states 176.5 deaths per 100,000. For 95 years and older, it skyrockets to 319.6 Alzheimer deaths per 100,000 population.

Now, here’s the most incriminating factor affecting those statistics: Senior citizens in those age categories most likely have been residing in assisted living or some other structured medical care or community living facility that requires, and routinely delivers, annual flu and pneumococcal vaccines that are loaded with toxins and/or aluminum! It must be noted that aluminum is strongly implicated in numerous dementias [13] and Alzheimer’s disease, too.

Table B of the above CDC report confirms:

Table B. Age-specific and age-adjusted death rates for

Alzheimer’s disease for decedents 65 years of age and over:
United States, 1990

[Age-adjusted rates per 100,000 U.S. standard million population; see appendix]

Age                                  Age-specific death rate 1

85–94 . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  176.5

95 years and over . . . . .  319.6

1 Includes age not stated.

Now, to elucidate further, here are the unfortunate, explosive and financial-impacting Alzheimer’s statistics snowballing from 1979 at 1.0 per 100,000 population to these current disastrous statistics:

  • 1-in-9 Americans over 65 has Alzheimer’s disease. (Alzheimer’s Association)
  • When the first wave of baby boomers reaches age 85 (in 2031), it is projected that more than 3 million people age 85 and older will have Alzheimer’s. (Alzheimer’s Association)
  • One-third of Americans over age 85 are afflicted with the illness. (Alzheimer’s Association)
  • 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. (Alzheimer’s Association)
  • Unless a cure is found, more than 16 million Americans will have the disease by 2050. (Alzheimer’s Association)
  • Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in America. (Centers for Disease Control) [10]

So, how much do figures lie or do liars figure? That’s something each individual has to sort out for him- or herself because the numbers, in reality, are telling us important information, especially that there may be causation with correlation—something all of medicine—and especially federal health agencies—refuse to investigate, especially regarding vaccines. Why?

Mathematical anomalies, I contend, have been demonstrated in the above statistics.

However, vaccine loading infants and children at the beginning of life and senior citizens during their sunset years of life probably plays a more ‘significant’ role in healthcare costs than we are led to believe, and maybe for more reasons than one. Furthermore, could mandatory vaccine loading be the rationale for: a) more than 300 vaccines in the developmental pipeline and, b) mandating that everyone in the USA receive all booster shots regardless of age? [15] Tremendous sums of money are to be made by vaccine manufacturers from vaccine sales, plus—and this has to be understood for what it represents—excise taxes on all vaccines that go to the U.S. Treasury.

Vaccines are not without their adverse reactions, even long-term health effects, which negatively will impact the ever-rising costs of healthcare/sickness care in the USA.

As an example, let’s see what the MMR-II vaccine can cause, as per pages 6 and 7 of the vaccine package insert for MMR-II.

Body as a Whole

Panniculitis; atypical measles; fever; syncope; headache; dizziness; malaise; irritability.

Cardiovascular System

Vasculitis.

Digestive System

Pancreatitis; diarrhea; vomiting; parotitis; nausea.

Endocrine System

Diabetes mellitus.

Hemic and Lymphatic System

Thrombocytopenia (see WARNINGS, Thrombocytopenia); purpura; regional lymphadenopathy; leukocytosis.

Immune System

Anaphylaxis and anaphylactoid reactions have been reported as well as related phenomena such as angioneurotic edema (including peripheral or facial edema) and bronchial spasm in individuals with or without an allergic history.

Musculoskeletal System

Arthritis; arthralgia; myalgia.

Arthralgia and/or arthritis (usually transient and rarely chronic), and polyneuritis are features of infection with wild-type rubella and vary in frequency and severity with age and sex, being greatest in adult females and least in prepubertal children. This type of involvement as well as myalgia and paresthesia, have also been reported following administration of MERUVAX II.

Chronic arthritis has been associated with wild-type rubella infection and has been related to persistent virus and/or viral antigen isolated from body tissues. Only rarely have vaccine recipients developed chronic joint symptoms.

Following vaccination in children, reactions in joints are uncommon and generally of brief duration. In women, incidence rates for arthritis and arthralgia are generally higher than those seen in children (children: 0-3%; women: 12-26%),{17,56,57} and the reactions tend to be more marked and of longer duration. Symptoms may persist for a matter of months or on rare occasions for years. In adolescent girls, the reactions appear to be intermediate in incidence between those seen in children and in adult women. Even in women older than 35 years, these reactions are generally well tolerated and rarely interfere with normal activities.

Nervous System

Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS); subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM); transverse myelitis; febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia.

As anyone can see from the above information, which FDA mandates vaccine makers make known on vaccine package inserts, serious and life-long health problems are acknowledged from vaccines and can occur from receiving the MMR-II vaccine, as with any vaccine. Here are the package inserts for vaccines so readers can learn what possibly can happen to increase the costs of healthcare once vaccine adverse reactions occur. But, obviously, no one is considering their impacts on healthcare costs, human suffering and, especially, how to prevent that from happening.

Regardless the reason(s) for vaccine dictates, there’s a new HHS/CDC mandate coming that everyone—irrespective of age—must be vaccinated with children’s booster shots! [15] How much do you think the cost of healthcare in the U.S. will increase as a result of that fiasco? Healthcare costs, I predict, probably will skirt 30% to 40% GDP very soon. We have to prevent that from happening. Why? There probably will be very few efficient and healthy workers available who will be able to make the country function as a viable nation and trading partner in the global economy.

The U.S. cost of autism over the lifespan is about $2.4 million for a person with an intellectual disability, or $1.4 million for a person without intellectual disability. (Buescher et al., 2014) [14]

35 percent of young adults (ages 19-23) with autism have not had a job or received postgraduate education after leaving high school. (Shattuck et al., 2012) [14]

In June 2014, only 19.3 percent of people with disabilities in the U.S. were participating in the labor force – working or seeking work. Of those, 12.9 percent were unemployed, meaning only 16.8 percent of the population with disabilities was employed. (By contrast, 69.3 percent of people without disabilities were in the labor force, and 65 percent of the population without disabilities was employed.) (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2014) [14]

1 percent of the adult population of the United Kingdom has autism spectrum disorder. (Brugha T.S. et al., 2011) [14]

Oh, and by the way, none of the above has taken into consideration what impacts the Affordable Care Act of 2010—aka “ObamaCare”—will have on everyone’s health and its care *, including U.S. healthcare costs and statistics. Since the ACA’s implementation, it’s been a financial bust! The website costs alone exceed $2Billion! [12]

As Jon T. Hall wrote at the American Thinker,

Congress should also have addressed the epic waste and fraud in the government medical programs before even thinking about expanding coverage. In May 2014, The Economist reported an estimate “that fraud (and the extra rules and inspections required to fight it) added… up to $272 billion across the entire health system.” Even now a sitting U.S. Senator is involved in a multimillion-dollar Medicare overbilling case. [11]

Just to reiterate, “Figures don’t lie, but liars sure do figure,” it seems.

An Afterthought

Just as I was ready to close my computer, I found the following in my inbox from Let Freedom Ring, which ought to make readers a little—well you fill in the blanks:

Nothing reinforces public cynicism toward government more than laws that exempt lawmakers from their effects. But even worse is when the law does not exempt lawmakers and they evade the law by lying. That is what Congress has done to avoid, only for themselves and their staff, the punishing effects of Obamacare (officially known as the Affordable Care Act).

Right now, all the members of the House and Senate and their staff, 13,700 people, are receiving health insurance subsidies that the law does not allow! [CJF emphasis added]

CLICK HERE to demand that your Senators and Representative move without delay to end their illegal reception of health insurance subsidies!

    Bakers bake.
    Teachers teach.
    Students study.
    Painters paint.
    Corporations make money; that’s what they do. Shareholders tend to ensure that mechanism.
    We are in a full blown corporatocracy.
    We obviously aren’t the shareholders.

    Folks like Catherine and Heather Callaghan and many readers here including myself interested in health learn things about wellness over the years:
    Applied Kinesiology.
    Quantum mechanics of healing.
    Various energy work.
    Homeopathy, natural cures, affirmations.
    The Truth about Cause and Effect in our bodies.
    Etc., etc., etc..
    It seems like ‘magic’.
    We think about how this valuable, Sacred, Divine, amazing often ancient
    information could possibly be kept secret – horded from the masses.
    Some feel compelled to share it, which is why many are here, now.

    To my mind; whenever we are perplexed over our current construct;
    we need only remember the globalist’s blueprint UN Agenda 21; their Agenda for the 21st Century.
    And, the fact that all these iconic sounding governmental ‘agencies’ are for profit corporations (the CDC having lineage to the Rothschilds).

    Take care, stay awake, don’t ‘wanna miss the best part of the movie.

    Surprise!

    “The researchers at the Yale School of Medicine note that doctors and their patients believe that the FDA carefully scrutinizes the drugs it approves. But their analysis of drugs approved between 2005 and 2012 demonstrates that many pharmaceuticals go on the market even though little is known about their safety. Or if they even work.”

  3. Thank you Catherine for bringing together an impressive array of stats that show the vaccine lie! http://drrimatruthreports.com/forced-vaccination-is-a-crime-against-humanity/ #vaccinationISviolation

  4. We let this farce go on for too long. Now its totally engrained in everything. History is systematically eased so that no one remembers natural cures. When it is mentioned by doctors its immediately attacked as quackery. Its a perfect business model for them: Inject children with toxins at an early age and have a lifelong customer.
