Dead doctors paid millions by Medicare + new interviews posted (and other news)

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


The NY Times is reporting today that Medicare has paid $92 million to more than 18,000 doctors who died years before they performed health services on patients. This is the startling finding of a new congressional report that reveals practicing medicine in the United States -- and being paid for it -- does not require you to actually be living! (Aha! That's why doctors always seem brain dead...)


Today, I've posted a hilarious satire article that explores this new industry of paying dead doctors to practice conventional medicine. Read it and laugh out loud at:
