Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the death of the wrestler "Ultimate Warrior". Asserting that he might have died from a cardiomyopathy heart attack as many previous young athletes. Contending that athletes sweat out all of the nutrients in their bodies. If they don't replenish these nutrients then disease will follow and ultimately death.
Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article regarding spending of Medicare dollars. In 2012 doctors and other health practitioners collected $77 billion from Medicare. This is the first time this detailed data has been released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. As the American Medical Association has long fought to keep this data private. Last year a federal judge lifted the injunction to keep this information private. The hope is that with this data public fraud might be more easily detected. A report from the Office of Inspector General looked at the $65 billion Medicare paid out in each year between 2008 and 2011. Approximately 2% of physicians were responsible for almost 25% of Medicare payments with each doctor getting more than $500,000 annually.
