When it comes to health products, our decisions on medical products and medical procedures are very similar. We can’t simply choose a product or medical service based on someone else’s recommendation. We have to choose what we know is best for us.
But what if by choosing the wrong health product or medical procedure, we kill ourselves or someone else? The answer to that question can be found in the newest marketing campaign for a popular health product, Vital. The campaign itself has caused many of the more controversial health products to be pulled from the market. The company says they’ve pulled the campaign because they believe the campaign is misleading and potentially harmful.
Vital is a popular blood-pressure product. It contains a combination of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural ingredients that have been shown in numerous studies to help blood pressure, cholesterol, and even cardiovascular disease. Vital is also one of the most popular blood-pressure devices on the market.
The campaign to remove the Vital product from the market is controversial because Vital is the most profitable product on the market that is also one of the most controversial. Many people find the product to be very helpful, but they believe it is not right for the public to be given. With millions of Vital customers, many of whom are elderly, the company has a vested interest in making sure its product stays on the market.
The Vital brand has been around for quite some time and is based on the idea that people should take their health into their own hands and take charge of their own health. Vital makes a lot of money on this by advertising that it has the largest patient database in existence. In fact, the database contains over 30 million patients. So even though Vital does have a vested interest in keeping this product off the market, they can’t afford to give up their profits.
The argument is that Vital’s product is too expensive and the idea that you should be able to take over your own health is a bit dangerous. However, I think the bigger issue is that the FDA has been very clear that there is a huge lack of transparency in the medical field. They also just released a new guideline that encourages doctors and patients to report the results of their tests so that we can know what is working and what isn’t.
The FDA guidelines state that it is not legal to do surgery for profit without going through a third party (like a doctor you can go to or a surgeon you can see). However, it is very clear that we are not allowed to use the profit to pay for a more expensive Vitals product. We are not allowed to get a Vitals lab in a store to do a test. We are not allowed to have a third party do a test without asking for the patient to sign the form.
Well, the funny thing is that you can go to a doctor and have a test done by a third party without the patient having to sign anything and a hospital without paying for it. The FDA has done a study that states that it is more cost effective to use a lab in a store than a third party.
It isn’t just the cost that is a factor in the decision making process. Some decisions are based on the need for life saving treatment. So in the case of heart surgery, a patient needs to have a heart bypass surgery and they will need to have a procedure done to reduce blood pressure, and a patient needs to have a stent put in their artery or blocked artery.
If you really think about it, this cost and effectiveness factor makes a lot of sense. The FDA has done a study that shows that the three most common reasons for not ordering a lab test (other than needing to get a prescription for something, which is a big if) are cost, the doctor, and the lab. The FDA does a lot of these things themselves. In fact, they have the ability to require you to have a lab test done.
