In reply to the clock,

What basis can be used to harmonize numbers, words and meaning?

Dear Benoit,

Thank you for your question.
If we only look at the first data column and then report those numbers to the total number of population we will see that for every person we spent:
Number calculated by refering to total number of population (7,018,727,343)
$0.93206 Public Healthcare expenditure today
$0.82223 Public Education expenditure today
$0.42343 Public Military expenditure today
$0.00068 Cars produced this year
$0.00152 Bicycles produced this year
$0.00394 Computers sold this year

If we will change the pattern and spent less on military actions/day and more on producing cars, bicycles and computers, we might be able overcome the current economical situation. I will produce more correlations among data. What we do not know is how many people died today because they did not have access to healthcare.

I have summarized the numbers in the following table-see attachment.
Every third person is obese while there are still people who suffer from malnutrition, but the proportion has changed dramatically. Obese people implies increased costs in healthcare and while we all know most of the causes, it appears that nobody does anything about it.

Here is an example of how officials misinterpret data: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/euro-crisis-dominates-davos-forum-growing-gap-between-134703242.html, "Mr. Unilever's Polman said it's unacceptable that more than 1 billion people are hungry every day while another billion are obese."

Data shows that people who are obese are in more need of healthcare/medical attention.
Less than 1 million people are not "nourished" and that term has a different meaning.
2 billion people and not one billion as he mentioned are overweight/ obese therefore the attention should be oriented towards them. Those are the people who are either too poor to afford nutritious food, suffer from depression, etc. and this is where actions should be taken to eliminate its root causes.

I know that this is an old argument, nut here it is.

When looking at the big picture, the health care industry is in fact medicare industry.

Health care is my very own personal affair, but we are raised as if it is too private and specialized to be handled away from the industry's services.

By learning to relate to one another along the lines of our taking care of ourselves all around, then health would simply become one of those things that the power of caring looks after.
