Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health issues are something voters should take seriously, according to experts in the field.
Rutgers University Professor of Medicine Bob Lahita said in an interview on Fox Business Network that concerns about the former secretary of state’s health are not conspiracy theories and instead should be taken very seriously, according to The Hill.
Lahita said Clinton’s medical history was “unusual,” referencing the two blood clots, stroke and post-concussive syndrome she had previously experienced. The concussion led to Clinton wearing special prism glasses to correct the double vision she experienced while recovering.
“The very fact that she’s having these clots and she’s had two bouts of thrombosis is disconcerting to say the least,” said Lahita.
When asked if questions regarding Clinton’s health were the result of a right-wing media outlets attempting to discredit her, the doctor replied, “I don’t think it’s a conspiracy.”
The adjunct Professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine went on to discuss how previous presidents concealed health issues during their campaigns and how that had “dire effects” on our country.
“(W)e have issues here and I think both candidates should be very forthcoming and perhaps have an impartial panel of physicians review the data and make that kind of decision before Americans go to the polls,” he said.
“We owe it to the country, we owe it to the voters, not only for the presidential candidates, but also for the vice-presidential candidates — particularly in this election,” he concluded.
It’s hard to argue with him on that.
