Is epilepsy more common among the poor and sick? A new report - http://ow.ly/lVBEr - suggests that it might be. Like this if you think more needs to be done to care for those who need it most!

More "poor" people have a higher % of EVERYTHING!!!
… WHY… because most people are considered poor. I'm not sure if that is a realistic stat to say that???
The rich / wealthy have all the best medical treatment and care at their fingertips.
The poor / middle class do not have such medical treatment, so easley…
Poor people suffer from more of everything because 90% of people on the planet are poor and don't have what they need to take care of their illness…

I have Epilepsy… been living with it for 20 years…

… health issues such as this have nothing to do with being rich or poor… BUT… $$$ will decide and provide the treatment you are able to get…
