Dr. Bryce Appelbaum on why healthcare has it all wrong about the eyes
We welcomed Dr. Bryce Appelbaum, OD, FCOVD, on 2o23’s inaugural Healthy Step Show on 88.5 WMNF Tampa and discussed the implications of capitalism on global health. He discussed how capitalism is eating humans alive, as seen in the US immigration debacle, the cashless society, and the Food and Drug Administration’s negligence in protecting people from artificial dyes and flavors in food. He also discussed the effectiveness of amber lenses, blue blockers, in improving sleep quality, and Bob, a caller to the show, discussed how capitalism is affecting the Tampa Bay area in the form of tearing down trees to build condos.
“Capitalism is eating humans alive. It uses them for the fodder to pave its way through profit. So we need to rethink this whole system and really consider what’s going on here. Because this is not just about money. This is about people’s access to food, to health care, to shelter, to water.” – Dr. Bryce Appelbaum, OD, FCOVD
