In my article Totalitarianism in Nationalized Health and 'The well worn path from socialized health to totalitarianism', I used my experiences in Britain as a springboard for exploring how nationalized healthcare changes how citizens relate to each other, as the entire populace begins to have economic incentives for policing each others' diets and health.
This type of Nanny State mentality is already well under way in America, as evidenced from the material in an interview I conducted with Ryan Close titled 'Freedom of Health: Does Uncle Sam Own Your Body?'
Building on this, my article Totalitarian Creep looked at some of the specific ways our freedom is being threatened by Obamacare.
I am also fascinated by the historical dimensions to the question of the relationship between the state and our health, and I have explored some of these in my article An Historical Perspective to the Health Care Debate.
My interest in health extends beyond the political and historical aspects, as I have also tried to debunk some of the myths about health food and about raw milk.
Finally, I have also given considerably attention to the theological dimensions of health, particularly when it comes to the Bible's teaching about healthy eating. I have explored these aspects in the following articles:
- A Theology of Health
- Blessings You Can Chew
- God Cares What's in the Pot (Part 1)
- God Cares What's in the Pot (Part 2)
- Food and Teology
