Leading Integrative Medicine doctor, Andrew Weil, MD says, NO! "The present system doesn't work, and it is going to take us down. We need a whole new kind of medicine," says Dr. Weil, who is the founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

On Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. ET on CNN the new movie documentary "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare," will air. The focus of the documentary is on America's low rankings in health among peer countries, the causes of poor health, the problems with the US medical system and some solutions.

According to new research released by the National Academy of Sciences in January 2013, Americans live shorter lives and are in poorer health than other high-income countries. Out of 17 high-income economic peer countries, American men rank
