A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


This Is Health Care? – 30 September 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

Have you noticed how people often stubbornly cling to habits that are destructive to their own and their families’ health and well-being, attacking and mocking those who offer a better way of life? At the same time, they respect and reward the very ones who are using them for their own gain.

These are probably some of the reasons why corruption in human society is so common and in many ways getting worse. An example of this is the shameful withholding from the general public of the proven facts about the health benefits of plant-based nutrition. Individuals should be able to make their own informed decisions about their eating habits, especially when so many are suffering with heart disease, strokes, cancer, obesity, etc.

Yet the very people who have the most to lose are led astray by the constant bombardment of propaganda initiated by the huge, powerful animal agriculture and pharmaceutical industries that have access to the government. Even most physicians are brainwashed into going along with this deception; and among those who privately acknowledge the truth, many go along with the negative assumption that their patients wouldn’t change their eating habits anyway. What do you expect when the booming “health care” industry rakes in billions of dollars by keeping the public in the dark?! Think about all the surgeries, pharmaceuticals, animal-utilizing research, “charities” for this or that “cure,” etc. Is it any wonder the world is heading toward hell in a hand basket?

There’s lots of money to be made in treating symptoms and making diseases chronic instead of giving people available options to reverse and eliminate disease.
