One of the biggest reasons to stay home in the West is the belief that health care in developing nations is scary. I agree that it can be. I was a person who spent about $100 a month at the health food store and went to farmers' markets to buy vegetables as often as I could afford. My doctor wanted to give me a plethora of vaccines, which I started to comply with but then decided not to. Many tourists get everything they can, hep. B, polio booster, etc. and I wondered if I had made the right decision.
