Don’t let the health care industry get a hold of you because they will never let go

Before my mother passed away from heart disease, she said something that stuck with me, while surrounded by bottles of prescription drugs– “Don’t let the health care industry get a hold of you because they will never let go.”

If they were just old wives tales that were obsolete, they’d have disappeared from modern culture, yet they persist, which leads me to believe that they have merit.
