Doctors are useless and out of date. They use 200 year old theories about how the human body works which are totally irrelevant to current findings. Good health costs nothing. Yet, doctors charge an arm and a leg for what? I say nothing. Its a scam. If anybody can prove that being a doctor is not a scam. Then, please step forward and get ready to be humiliated.

Doctors do have many uses, such as what if you don't know what diesise you have, they also help you fight what ever dieses you might have by selling drugs. the reason why doctors charge "a arm and a leg" is because it costs a lot to make the drugs that fight the diesies/infection, also the doctors need to make money.

There is only one disease which is called vitamin deficiency disease. Doctors make up lots of disease names to confuse people and to make people think that curing disease is a complicated business that requires an expert like a doctor. This is false information and propaganda which makes doctors rich and powerful. Disease is caused by a bad diet and can be fixed by a good diet. Its as simple as that. The true cost of medicine is about one percent of its sale price. Thus, all medicine is a rip off. I eat a Paleo diet which is the only proper diet for humans. I never get sick with flu, headaches, nausea, stomach aches, arthritis, chest pain or any other problem. By avoiding grain, sugar, dairy and fat you too can become disease free.

First if everyone changed there diet then there would be a need for that food and other foods would not be eaten, so we would stop eating them and they will go away and when the food everyone is eating is gone then most of the worlds population would starve. Also diseases do have causes other then a bad diet such as being in a dirty area, also curing diseases does take lots of work and is complicated business.

The world is overpopulated. This was caused by eating grain which is an unnatural food for humans to eat. Grain will make you sick if you eat too much of it. For everybody to be healthy, we need to reduce the world population by about 95 %. If you eat toxic substances like rotten food, dangerous chemicals and faecal material you will get sick. People who don't have fresh water to drink are forced to drink dirty faecal contaminated water because the population is too high and there isn't enough clean water for everybody. Thus, eating grain causes overpopulation which leads to pollution and disease. Curing disease is not complicated. All you need to do is to stop people eating grain, sugar, dairy and fat. There are plenty of other foods that you can eat to substitute for grain.

"we need to lower the world population" Really?! so who do you plan to kill, and what do you mean by saying that humans shouldn't be eating grain....Really....Really.... and how does grain cause overpopulation, oh and if people stop eating grain, sugar, dairy, fat than people will starve and all the "good foods" prices will skyrocket so even more people will starve and if people starve than they can't work so jobs close and workers are in high demand so jobs such as energy will be close to ending, so no electricity and with no electricity than farmers can't make as much "good food" so even more people starve meaning less workers so society as a whole would stop and humanity will collapse.

The world is living on borrowed time as it is. Sooner or later the oil will run out and it will be back to the stone age for everybody. I am only being pragmatic in suggesting that we pre-empt this coming catastrophe by planning ahead. We are consuming oil and coal at faster and faster rates. To think that this rapid expansion will continue forever is childish and shallow. If we start to apply the brakes now we can achieve an acceptable result so that we can avoid falling over the oncoming cliff edge which lies on the horizon. A one child per family policy globally can achieve a satisfactory decline without the need of murdering anybody. The alternative is just to wait for the big crunch to arrive, when billions of people will either starve or be murdered by their neighbours all vying for the last remaining morsel of food.

Your mathematics, spelling and grammar are all appalling. Go get yourself an education.

Ok, I understand that the comments are not supposed to be like the debate round but your debate for round four is absurd, if a couple only had one child the population would go down quickly so less work so it is not as efficient and after about 100 years with that policy would make humanity go extinct.

Your argument contradicts your position. You said we need doctors.
