The WidowMaker is a Must-See Movie & Might SAVE YOUR LIFE
20 July 2015 | by gmezo-99373See all my reviews

"The WidowMaker" is a Must-See Documentary for every adult. You need to understand the politics and greed involved in the Cardiology and Heart Care Industry that consists of Cardiologists, Invasive Cardiologists, Heart Surgeons, Hospitals, Stent Makers and BIG PHARMA. Heart Disease fuels a MAJOR aspect of our health care system. An extremely accurate 20-second non-invasive test done by a low-dose CT machine known as the CAC Score is threatening the profits of the hospitals and cardiologists......as it costs very little and can find that up to 50% of heart procedures ($$$) are not actually needed at all. Yet, heart disease kills nearly 35% of all of us and we want to trust our "doctors" who have "nothing-but-the-best-in-mind-for-us" lol. But lining thir pockets with gold appears to be the motivation.

Heart Disease is a big-money industry and the power players are polarized toward keeping the status-quo and the billions of profits. The proponents of the CAC Score feel that the existing cardiology mafia-esque power-cadre should change to save peoples lives because it's the right thing to do.......herein lies the crux....they don't want to give up the money. There are Non-invasive options and alternatives today instead of surgery. Watch "The WidowMaker" on NETFLIX TODAY!!!
