“We live in a time when our bodies have become burdened with considerable quantities of many chemical substances that are known to cause disease. We have never given our consent to the deliberate or unintentional production and release of these chemicals into the environment or to the entry into our bodies of these chemicals. Very large numbers of Americans suffer diseases and conditions that are caused by these chemical body burdens, including: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, reproductive failures, cognitive deficit disorders, behavioral disorders and autoimmune diseases. The US economy created a tremendous amount of wealth largely as a result of chemical production and use. It is only fair that the federal government would make affordable health care available to every American. By doing so, the federal government is sharing some of the nation’s wealth with low income people who do not have sufficient financial resources to obtain the health care that they need. It is good that the US Supreme Court has upheld the health care program created by the Obama administration.”
