How well do you understand what defines your health? Can you wake up one morning and make the decision to go purchase good health? Where would you go? Can you tell Santa Claus that you want him to bring you the gift of good health for Christmas? The federal government and health insurance companies want us to believe that having “health care” can make you healthy. They have presented health care as a means to your health, but it has turned out to be a con job to take over each American’s access to medical care—decimating health professionals’ ability to treat their patients effectively and at a reasonable cost.
HealthScare: Why Health Care Is NOT About Your Health details the history and ultimate failure of government and insurance involvement in the health industry. Using over four decades of experience in the health industry as a pharmacist, Fritz Scheffel argues that we can make the health system efficient, cost effective, and beneficial to all by regaining power over our own health from power-hungry politicians.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started writing when I realized there was a distinct lack of reality about the health industry being presented by politicians and the news media. I worked for years in the industry and knew the American people were not being told the truth about healthcare. I continued writing about the health industry rather late in life because I was waiting for someone else to spread the truth.
I remember a few years ago watching a game show on TV. While I don’t remember exactly what the game shows’ name was, a contestant could win a million dollars if they guessed which pretty girl on the stage was holding a pre-determined lucky number or something like that. One night a young lady was chosen to be the contestant with a chance to win a million dollars. She was bubbly and full of life, which is probably why they selected her to be the contestant. The host then proceeded to ask her a series of questions designed to peak the view’s interest so they would stay tuned through the advertisers’ commercials. Now, I never saw anyone win a million dollars on that show, which is probably why the show is no longer on the air. But when the contestant was asked, “What will you do if you win some money” her answer caught my attention. Her response was “I want to win some money so I can buy some health insurance and afford to have a baby.”
That contestant’s response really demonstrated for me how most people understand so little about their health. Was this contestant concerned about health? I came away from viewing this show, and hearing this contestant’s statement, thinking she was mostly concerned about having insurance to pay for her planned pregnancy.
