Two separate reports point to a 40 percent increase in deaths of 18-49 year olds. One report conducted by military doctors, the other by the Insurance industry. I’d like to see the finite details of the military doctor’s analysis, as well as learn more about the insurance industry’s findings. Let’s face it, the insurance industry is not one of the most stable and historically prosperous industries because they are accustomed to paying out death benefits for employment-age people.
Do look at this news report. This is a textbook example of an outstanding local TV news report, outstanding both by the anchor who prefaced the report astutely, asked all the right questions, and by the subject-matter expert, Dr. Kelly Victory, who painstakingly navigated an emotional, politicized and controversial topic, making sure she did not deviate from the facts as they are known. THIS is good reporting. Let science dictate the root cause once it is known. And let us all leave our political leanings at the door when it comes to our health and the health of our loved ones.
