Health Conspiracy Theories Are Widely Believed











(Photo: Matt Rourke, AP) SHARE 9600 CONNECT 288 TWEET 177 COMMENTEMAILMORE Nearly half of American adults believe the federal government, corporations or both are involved in at least one conspiracy to cover up health information, a new survey finds. Conspiracy theories on everything from cancer cures to cellphones to vaccines are well known and accepted by sizable segments of the population, according to a research letter published this week in JAMA Internal Medicine . The findings reflect "a very low level of trust" in government and business, especially in pharmaceutical companies, says study co-author Eric Oliver, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago. They also reflect a human tendency to explain the unknown as the work of "malevolent forces," he says.

The 1-800-Got-Junk? franchisee said rates for coverage he was providing were scheduled to jump 65 percent this year. So he sent employees to exchanges to find coverage and offered to continue paying half the premium, or coverage cost. He projects savings of $3,000 to $4,000 annually - significant for a company with $500,000 to $1 million in annual revenue, he said.
