Trying to be friendly, that’s all.

If you look at American medical fiction written by doctors, like ‘The House of God’ by Samuel Shem and ‘The Blood of Strangers’ by Frank Huyler, both have themes of cynicism and dysfunction running through them that you won’t find in ‘ER.’ You find it in ‘Scrubs,’ but because that’s a comedy, it gets away with it.

The logic is often far-fetched – how does medical marijuana affect interstate commerce? – and some conservatives would like judges to start throwing out federal laws wholesale on commerce clause grounds. The court once again said no thanks.

In my own life, I decided to leave meat off my plate in medical school, but was a bit slow to realise that dairy products and eggs are not health foods either.
I’ll bring colleges and industry together to develop new products in marine science, green technology, and medical devices, and to train our workers to fill those jobs… We need to get Rhode Islanders back to work.
When a man goes through six years training to be a doctor he will never be the same. He knows too much.
Charge forward with hope and get the best medical advice you can. Talk to your friends, neighbors, family, and together you attack it. We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we react to it.
Another cause of change, one less noticeable but fundamental, is the modern growth of population closely connected with scientific and medical discoveries. It is interesting that the United Nations has set up a special Commission to study this question.
If you look at the human condition today, not everyone is well fed, has access to good medical care, or the physical basics that provide for a healthy and a happy life.
I keep dreaming of a future, a future with a long and healthy life, not lived in the shadow of cancer but in the light.
My father ended up starting the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre, which is on the slopes of Kilimanjaro. My mother started a school.
There’s a classic medical aphorism: ‘Listen to the patient; they’re telling you the diagnosis.’ Actually, a lot of patients are just telling you a lot of rubbish, and you have to stop them and ask the pertinent questions. But, yes, in both drama and medicine, isolated facts can accumulate to create the narrative.
The most common things I would go out for would be, like, ‘the Lab Technician’ on a crime procedural, usually an expert in either a medical or a computer-oriented field.
I couldn’t make a headphone look like a piece of medical equipment or a toy, as most headphones do.
I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.
Scientists should not do animal testing if there is any alternative, but subject to that, I would support it on grounds of the medical benefits.
My dad’s side of the family was very poor while growing up, but my dadi raised three kids, got my dad through medical school, sent my uncle to America where he wanted to work and helped my aunt become an accountant, because that’s what she wanted to do.
Honestly, being a doctor could make you more close minded than regular people.
One of the very best things about being a coach or student-athlete at UCLA is if you need medical attention, you won’t find any better place in the country than at the incomparable UCLA Medical Center.
I would like to promote the concept of a partnership of insurance companies, physicians and hospitals in deploying a basic framework for an electronic medical records system that is affordable.
Only medical hypnosis is capable of opening up amnesia.
The goal of my University education was to get into a medical college and equip myself to run a hospital in Kumbakonam left behind by my father, M.K. Sambasivan, who died at a young age in 1936.
Medical costs are soaring because our health-care system is totally screwed up. Doctors and hospitals have every incentive to spend on unnecessary tests, drugs, and procedures.
My parents are always like, ‘Camille stop with the medical stuff!’
Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey.
I think ‘Red Band Society’ is unique because not only is it focusing on a pediatric ward, but it’s from the view from the patient, not from the view of the doctors. So we’re getting to see a whole other side of hospitals and medical series life that we haven’t been able to see before.
I like the values associated with a medical family – common sense, being practical but also thoughtful.
These core principles – helping patients, preventing medical errors, promoting best practices and improving quality – are the reasons that health IT is featured in both the 2012 Republican platform and 2012 Democratic platform.
We have spent so much time worrying about a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor,” the attack that takes out the power grid, that we have focused far too little on the subtle manipulation of data that can mean that no election, medical record, or self-driving car can be truly trusted.
Medical school education and post graduate education emphasize thoroughness.
DACA recipients risk a lot to come out of the shadows & sign up, but many will tell you the risk is worth being able to live and work in the only country they’ve ever known as home. DACA recipients serve in our military, work in Fortune 100 companies, and conduct important medical research.
You’re not going to eliminate concussions. Anytime you hit your head, you have a chance of getting a concussion, in any sport, too. I think we have to learn more about it. Part of it is rules, part of it is equipment, part of it is medical studies, knowing more about the brain.
I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy.
The doctor part of me recognises the light and shade of medical life, but the writer in me is more attracted by the darkness, perhaps because it is the road less travelled.
I thought that if acting didn’t work out, I’d have done law school or medical school: probably law to be honest.
I did have pushback in the beginning of my career because my parents weren’t really sure what I was going to do with my life going in the route of makeup. I was planning on medical school, so when I threw the makeup wrench at them, they were not expecting that.
Any man who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined.
Medical Device technology is truly interdisciplinary.
We can learn something from every single medical interaction. Every case, every patient has a lesson to teach us.
Patients who have suffered appalling medical negligence, abused children ignored by social services, mistreated residents of care homes – they have all been given a voice by the Human Rights Act.
Right now, doctors can test for about 2,500 medical conditions, but they only can treat about 500 of those. So what do you do with the knowledge about the others?
Every hope of successive generations of scholars that order might be constructed from the chaotic mess of medical nomenclature has been frustrated. Even diseases recognized in the same historical period have been given names based on characteristics that have no relation to one another, and thus no common criteria.
I have passed English medical examinations in Hong Kong… In my youth, I experienced overseas studies. The languages of the West, its literature, its political science, its customs, its mathematics, its geography, its physics and chemistry – all these I have had the chance to study.
The more powerful a technology greater care should be used to benefit fro it. India should not be left behind the world. From the past revolution of nuclear technology we saw how it could destruct and at the same time were useful for medical science.
When I last looked, there weren’t queues of eager guys under 40 hanging outside single ladies’ doors begging them to give up work and have their babies. It takes two to tango and the same number, without medical help, to make a child.
The path of progress cuts through the four-way intersection of the moral, medical, religious and political – and whichever way you turn, you are likely to run over someone’s deeply held beliefs.
At the age of 16, my father’s father dropped dead of a heart attack. And I think it changed the course of his life, and he became fascinated with death. He then became a medical doctor and obviously fought death tooth and nail for his patients.
At the heart of both democracy and capitalism is a simple assumption that, across the board, people make free and relatively rational decisions: that we are, to borrow a medical term, Gillick Competent.
The reason we need formal government guidance from the chief medical officer is to empower parents.
Even though people pretend that medical records are privileged information, anyone can already get their hands on them.
I’m somewhat of a socialist in the sense that I believe in housing for the homeless and medical care for all. So, for me, the American dream has been having a TV show, and being successful and having a nice house and having everything.
Unfortunately, it seems to me that when it comes to issues affecting the trans community, most people who are cisgender – a word describing those people whose gender identity is in alignment with the sex they were assigned at birth – focus too much on the administrative, legal, and medical aspects of trans identity.
Uninsured care happens in this country, and here’s the problem. It’s not properly accounted for. The people who pay for uninsured care at the moment are the hospitals and the doctors and all of the medical providers.
Nutrition is an exciting, dynamic field – there are more than 10,000 articles published on human nutrition in medical journals every year.
I’m married to a nurse, and she is really, really ardent that – in screenplays or movies that I’ve worked on, that all the medical aspects be properly presented. I think that filmmakers ought to be respectful of all fields and not just be lazy and put nonsense in movies because most people won’t know the difference.
It is clear that the pharmaceutical industry is not, by any stretch of the imagination, doing enough to ensure that the poor have access to adequate medical care.
Some struggle with medical issues – like insomnia – that make sleep hard. But for many of us, the quantity and quality of sleep come down to a matter of choice. Still, only a few enterprising economists have looked closely at this, and generally, those have assumed that we choose our hours of sleep optimally.
I am a medical scientist, not a practical physician.
I had worked so hard on three projects 1997 that it knocked the gas out of me. It was a mystery to the medical profession, but you can test positive for Epstein-Barr and not have it. When you get a post-viral syndrome, for some people it causes chronic fatigue or hearing loss. For me it became light sensitivity.
As a former professional patient advocate, I believe prescription drugs are an essential part of high-quality medical treatment, and I supported enactment of the Medicare Prescription Drug and Modernization Act.
This is a really big space station. We do a lot of various kinds of work here, different kinds of science experiments; we have over 400 different experiments going on at any one time in different areas, from basic science research to medical technology, that hopefully will benefit more people on Earth.
There can be no stronger claim to a physician’s assistance than at the time when death is imminent, a moral judgment implied by the state’s own recognition of the legitimacy of medical procedures necessarily hastening the moment of impending death.
The Christian’s Bible is a drug store. Its contents remain the same, but the medical practice changes.
Writing was in my mind from the time I was in high school, but more, the idea that I would be a doctor. I really wanted to be a medical doctor, and I had various schemes: one was to be a psychiatrist, another was tropical medicine.
French people should be prioritised; clandestine immigrants get 100 per cent refund on healthcare while two-thirds of French people can’t afford medical help. Charity begins at home.
The Medical Society of Sedgwick County, the Kansas Hospital Association and doctors have really done some remarkable work on wellness-related issues.
I studied in a medical college and qualified myself as a medical graduate.
Writing is very much an emotional process; it requires you to be very in touch with your feelings. That is the opposite of what you’re taught as a medical doctor. We’re supposed to be detached and logical. Maybe because I started off as a writer and then became a doctor, I’m able to integrate those two.
I love the Discovery Channel. I love all sorts of medical shows.
I only worked theater jobs, but they were all really silly when I first graduated. I was a line monitor at ‘Spamalot,’ which means I got there at 8 A.M. and told people how much the tickets were for standing room. I was an NYU Medical School fake patient, to teach doctors how to talk to patients.
Jobless workers, especially those out of work for months and years, don’t have the skills to multitask in a fast-paced economy where medical workers need to know electronic record-keeping, machinists need computer skills, and marketing managers can no longer delegate software duties.
Medical physics is an applied area of physics.
When I took command in Vietnam, I gave great emphasis to food and medical care – and to the mail.
In my third year at medical school in Birmingham, I joined the Air Force as a medical cadet so that I was sponsored to become a doctor.
I am dying from the treatment of too many physicians.
I was doing general medicine and during residency, I moonlighted at a psychiatric hospital and became very interested in the medical care of psychiatric patients.
As I’m sure you may know, I’m planning to become a spaceflight participant and have been recently approved to begin my spaceflight training by the Russian space federation having passed the necessary medical and physical tests.
One has a greater sense of degradation after an interview with a doctor than from any human experience.
In aviation they have auto pilot and color radar and a lot of other instrumentation that is a backup for pilots. It’s really brought the incidents of plane crashes way down. Same thing ought to happen in the medical industry, I think.
Disease is an experience of a so-called mortal mind. It is fear made manifest on the body.
Even top caliber hospitals cannot escape medical mistakes that sometimes result in irreparable damage to patients.
It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.
Sometimes astronauts feel a little ill or get minor scrapes. I trained as a crew medical officer to do basic treatment.
I’ve never met a person who does not want a safer world, better medical care and education for their children, and peace with their neighbours. I just don’t meet those people. What I meet, over and over again, as I travel around, is that the essential human condition is optimistic – in every one of these places.
You got to pick one – pay your medical bills or pay the mortgage. Most people can’t do both, and I’m no different.
In a wristwatch, imagine the battery is in the strap and there’s a medical sensor in there connected to the internet. If someone is monitoring that, they could phone up if the user has forgotten to take some medication. This could save hundreds of dollars in medical fees later. What’s missing? It’s a stable battery.
It remains to be seen the extent to which the critical needs of seniors in low income high rises, people with home medical needs and those with disabilities have been adequately planned for and met during widespread power outages. I fear the answers.
Many of the issues I encountered as acting secretary were not with the quality of medical care but with getting our veterans through the door to reach that care.
After wrestling with myself for six months, I began medical treatment. During that time I started a band with some friends of mine called Jack’s Car, but that didn’t last.
With a lot of help from my high school teachers, I went to college and became a medical tech at a clinic outside Kansas City.
I decided, as a medical student, to devote myself to a study of the brain.
The growth of medical expenditures in the U.S. is not caused by administrative costs but by increases in the technical intensity of care over time – a.k.a. medical progress.
My sister told me: ‘You need to have a baby so that you’ve got someone to look after you when you’re old.’ And I was like: ‘Hang on – I thought that’s what the NHS was for? Unless the NHS is that screwed by the time I’m old, you’ve literally had to give birth to your own medical professional.’
To the medical man, astrology is invaluable in diagnosing diseases and prescribing a remedy, for it reveals the hidden cause of all ailments.
The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.
A retired teacher paid $62,000 towards her pension and nothing, yes nothing, for full family medical, dental and vision coverage over her entire career. What will we pay her? $1.4 million in pension benefits and another $215,000 in health care benefit premiums over her lifetime.
Researches tested a new form of medical marijuana that treats pain but doesn’t get the user high, prompting patients who need medical marijuana to declare, ‘Thank you?’
Hunger, inadequate medical care, poor housing, and inferior schools are enemies of the sense of wonder. It is easier and less expensive in the long run to prevent a loss of imagination by providing adequate nutrition, housing, medical care, and schooling than it is to try to restore that loss.
My memories from my childhood are centered on my father’s medical conditions alongside my constant desire to understand the principles of the nature around me.
To make a coverage decision, doesn’t one have to make a medical judgment?
Many, many years ago, when you named alternates, and they wouldn’t travel with you – I think you’re dealing with a small roster. Now you travel with these alternates, which you can replace at any time, obviously, if it’s a medical situation, so you have it in your back pocket.
Yes. I’m a doctor, an epidemiologist, and lots of my professional colleagues flip back and forth between industry and medical roles. I know them; they are not bad people. But it is possible for good people in bad systems to do things that inflict enormous harm.
The United States has an active pharmaceutical industry that has brought huge benefits to the U.S. public. Most Americans, who benefit from these advances, have little understanding of how difficult it is to create an important new medical therapy and make it available to improve public health.
Where does my body end and an invader start? And cancer, a tumor, is something you grow out of your own tissue. How does that happen? Where does medical ability end and start?
There are a ton of medical dramas out there dealing with life and death.
The fact is that a bill allowing any employer to deny insurance coverage based on a moral objection – along with giving an employer permission to ask for medical records showing why a woman is taking birth control – opens up a set of problems that I’m sure its sponsors have not fully considered.
It’s interesting when people make comments about celebrities’ weight gain or lack of weight gain as if they’re a medical professional that’s treating that celebrity. Like, ‘This doctor does not treat Jessica Simpson, but thinks her weight is unhealthy.’ If you don’t treat her, then how do you know?
Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn’t organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.
I don’t believe medical discoveries are doing much to advance human life. As fast as we create ways to extend it we are inventing ways to shorten it.
We’re investing billions of dollars in housing, in home care on the medical side. We’re investing billions of dollars in public transit that is not just creating good jobs now but is going to help people get to and from their good jobs in more reliable ways.
In my eyes, there’s heroes I look up to. People who saved me – my caretakers, people at Boston Medical Center. My surgeon. The people that pulled me off that ground, who pulled me out. Those are my heroes. The police. The paramedics. Those are the true heroes.
I completed medical school at Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1984.
I’ve participated in many demonstrations since I was a child. When I was at medical college, I was fighting King Farouk, then British colonization, against Nasser, against Sadat who pushed me into prison, Mubarak who pushed me into exile. I never stopped.
The sacrifices made by veterans and their willingness to fight in defense of our nation merit our deep respect and praise – and to the best in benefits and medical care.
A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.
Here in Silicon Valley, I have taken part in hundreds of conversations trying to convince people to dive in and become entrepreneurs. All too often, innovators with good, safe, jobs are unwilling to put their family’s access to health care at risk by walking away from company-backed medical insurance.
We must always remember that all medical interventions have risk, and very little can be asserted with 100 percent certainty.
I believe doctors and scientists who say that disruption of our immune system by negative energy makes you prone to diseases of which cancer is one. That is a medical fact.
So I applied to medical school and received a scholarship at Washington University in St. Louis. Washington University turned out to be a lucky choice. The faculty was scholarly and dedicated and accessible to students.
The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.
I wish medical schools helped us to analyze our healthy and unhealthy reasons for becoming doctors.
No doubt, clinical practice in alleviating malaria symptoms utilizing Qinghao – inherited from traditional Chinese medical literature – provided some useful information leading to the discovery of artemisinin.
I feel genius in great works of art. I have seen medical cures that science can’t explain, some seemingly triggered by faith. The same is true of millions of other people.
Community health centers do a great deal with limited resources. They provide critical medical care services to many who would otherwise have no other place to go or would end up in an emergency room.
Of course, the medical profession doesn’t like D.I.Y. anything.
I’m consumed with tech – medical, computational, impossible tech. So, I don’t know exactly what I’ll wind up doing, where I’ll go with all this schooling, but I’m willing that it be better than my dogmatic vision of it all.
I totally deplore the notion of an M.D. giving pills to patients – a medical doctor giving psychological or psychoactive change agents to another person.
Reform of the medical liability system should be considered as part of a comprehensive response to surging medical malpractice premiums that endanger Americans’ access to quality medical care.
Before journalism, I had worked doing medical aid work in conflict zones. Then, as a journalist, I had written about hospitals in war zones.
The best way to reduce the cost of medical care is to reduce the illness.
People say that the most expensive piece of medical equipment is the doctor’s pen. It’s not that we make all the money. It’s that we order all the money.
Corporate governance is a huge issue too. We don’t have women on these corporate boards. More than half of the students in law school are women, more than half of the women, I think, in medical school now are women.
I was reading about all of these medical and psychological experimental programs that the government and various intelligence agencies had run throughout the 20th century. Any book you can read on that, there’s some really horrifying and fascinating stuff that goes on there.
The physicians of one class feel the patients and go away, merely prescribing medicine. As they leave the room they simply ask the patient to take the medicine. They are the poorest class of physicians.
Iraq has the most extensive petrochemical industry in the Middle East and a wealth of vaccine factories, single-cell protein research labs, medical and veterinary manufacturing centers and water treatment plants.
Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.
Immortality Device has been tested and researched by medical researchers all over the world from time to time. They email me and told me what they found. I post their results sometimes on my site.
Getting out of the hospital is a lot like resigning from a book club. You’re not out of it until the computer says you’re out of it.
In an ideal world, the amount of money we spend on medical research to prevent or cure a disease would be proportional to its seriousness and the number of people who suffer from it.
There’s a lot of interest from the medical community on how things develop in microgravity, and the hope, later, that is expected to apply to what the changes are in humans as well.
Long gone are the days when hospital stays and surgeries made up the bulk of seniors’ annual medical expenses.
Being transgender is not just a medical transition.
I was injured by an enemy hand grenade in Afghanistan in 2010. I spent three years recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center… And through that three years, I was forced to search for the silver linings during the long dark and painful nights and days in the hospital.
On bad days, I think I’d like to be a plastic surgeon who goes to Third World countries and operates on children in villages with airlifts, and then I think, ‘Yeah, right, I’m going to go back to undergraduate school and take all the biology I missed and then go to medical school.’ No. No.
So many of our wounded warriors from today’s wars are alive not just because of remarkable advances in technology, but primarily because of the extraordinary dedication and skill of our military and our VA medical professionals.
I was pretty serious about pursuing forensic science as a profession. In fact, I pursued an internship at the office of the chief medical examiner here in New York.
In the real world, 90% of the money spent on medical research is focused on conditions that are responsible for just 10% of the deaths and disability caused by diseases globally.
If you want to write the software to control the national medical system of a large country, Java is perfect.
I basically believe the medical insurance industry should be nonprofit, not profit-making. There is no way a health reform plan will work when it is implemented by an industry that seeks to return money to shareholders instead of using that money to provide health care.
I never thought that I would pursue a cappella music. I went to Yale College and I was going to go into the medical field.
When I went through my eating disorder, I never sought medical assistance. I created myths in my head about how I should get through things, so the idea that I could surround myself with truth and feel comfortable enough to speak mine allowed me to breathe.
Any doctor will admit that any drug can have side effects, and that writing a prescription involves weighing the potential benefits against the risks.
It is reasonable to expect the doctor to recognize that science may not have all the answers to problems of health and healing.
Walk away from medical professionals who dismiss your concerns, and don’t quit searching until you find someone who will truly partner with you to find the answers you deserve.
As a physician and a U.S. senator, I have warned since the very beginning about many troubling aspects of Mr. Obama’s unprecedented health-insurance mandate. Not only does he believe he can order you to buy insurance, the president also incorrectly equates health insurance coverage with medical care.
I went to medical school because I wanted to ask the big questions. Do we have a soul? Does God exist? What happens after death?
The Internet gave me the sense that there were words to describe my feelings and medical terms.
After I spent my compulsory army service in the ‘top secret office’ of the Medical Forces, where I was fortunate to be exposed to clinical and medical issues, I enrolled to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The greatest evil is physical pain.
In medical school, you’re taught to write in this convoluted, Latinate way. I knew the vocabulary as well as anyone, but I would write kidney instead of nephric. I insisted on using English.
C-17s should be ready to go at various military bases around the world packed with water, food, medical supplies, sleeping bags and tents, all prepared to be air dropped in alongside soldiers and doctors to begin relief efforts.
As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we need to make sure we have enough medical professionals to care for people in need.
For my convalescence, I had to exercise my voice only with vowels. It is a medical rule after a long loss of voice.
When families save, they can get through emergencies like a bad harvest or a medical emergency. But it’s more than that. They can also plan for the future, gradually saving up for a small business or for their children’s school tuition.
It is certainly important to be looking for cures to medical disorders, but it is equally important to conduct research on human health and well-being.
The space industry is developing and delivering benefits that tie into our immediate needs and priorities here on Earth-for example, medical and materials research, and satellite communications.
I came from a middle-class family. My father was a professor in a medical college, and my mother was a schoolteacher. We led a good life but we did not have much money.
We still have people in the active duty, and if people are feeling ill, if they’re experiencing various symptoms and they’re still in the active duty, they’re less likely to come forward because that could result in their medical discharge.
My diagnosis had been discussed in almost every major medical journal, including the ‘New England Journal of Medicine,’ and ‘The New York Times.’
I think we’re rapidly approaching the day where medical science can keep people alive in hospitals, hooked up to tubes and things, far beyond when any kind of quality of life is left at all.
In ‘Bodies,’ we had a lot of gore because it was a medical drama. The gore was authentic.
Young people experiencing homelessness often have a difficult time accessing services, including shelter, medical care, and employment. This is due to the stigma of their housing situation, lack of knowledge of available resources, and a lack of services targeted to young people.
Making personalized medicine a reality will require a strong partnership between 23andMe and the physician and medical communities.
Kennedy lied and lied about his health while he was alive, even using his father’s influence to get into the Navy without ever taking a medical examination.
I never had a conscious fear of death, but I did have a conscious fear of sickness. By the time I completed medical school, that fear was gone.
After qualifying for a B.Sc. in pharmacology, I spent a few months in Sheffield University as a research worker in the pharmacology department but then went back to Oxford to the Nuffield Institute for Medical Research in order to study for a D. Phil. with Dr. Geoffrey Dawes.
I’m old enough to remember when the polio vaccine was still new. Also, it hadn’t been that long since most people who caught pneumonia died from it. These medical breakthroughs were practically miracles.
I mean, everybody should have access to medical care. And, you know, it shouldn’t be such a big deal.
Zombies let us explore notions of the apocalypse – no water, food, medical care, the government imploding – while letting us sleep at night.
The Republicans want to turn Medicare into a voucher plan that will end guaranteed coverage of medical bills for the elderly.
Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever.
The physician’s highest calling, his only calling, is to make sick people healthy – to heal, as it is termed.
I wish every international or national corporate would be given a rule to set up companies in rural areas, where they would have to provide hospitals, schools, low-cost housing and free medical care, training, and then employment – but not on agricultural land.
Almost every economist agrees that the American health care system is unsustainable. Medical care is so expensive that it is busting all of our budgets – government, business, and personal. Eventually, the medical price bubble will pop. What, then, are the alternatives?
A placebo is a phony cure that works. This is very hard for the medical profession to get their teeth around because they hate placebos, but scientifically, placebos work in about 30% of cases that are psychogenic diseases.
I had a home birth because I really believe in the body’s natural ability to give birth. The medical profession has kind of warped women’s minds into thinking we don’t know how to birth and we need doctors and epidurals and Pitocin.
I loved working on ‘House,’ but I never ever want to do another medical show. It’s ‘fiddly’ stuff.
While global research is crucial, the U.S. must maintain its leadership role as the world’s innovator for both medical advancement and job creation.
Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It’s like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. In fact, in 20% of medical cases we do apparently have that going on. But in the case of thought, its far over 20%.
I am a military police officer and I have served on two deployments; my first was to Iraq, in a medical unit, and my second deployment was to Kuwait, as a military police platoon leader.
It was my Uncle George who discovered that alcohol was a food well in advance of modern medical thought.
These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
I decided to start a medical training program for freelancers, only freelancers. They’re the ones who are doing most of the combat reporting. They’re taking most of the risks. They’re absorbing most of the casualties. And they’re the most underserved and under-resourced of everyone in the entire news business.
As a physician and as a pilot, I think it lets me be a pretty good translator having one foot in the medical world and one foot in the flying world. Sometimes when the medical guys come in and speak medical stuff to the pilots, the pilots really don’t know what they’re saying.
Veterans often need medical and psychological assistance, and often, for them, it is hard to ask for help, but we want them to know they are not alone.
Your genome sequence will become a vital part of your medical record, thereby providing critical information about how to optimize your wellness.
Harvard Medical School, the University of South Florida and the American Psychiatric Association have all conducted studies showing that the earlier one begins gambling, the more likely it is he or she will become an addicted, problem gambler.
Most medical physicists work in the physics of radiation oncology making sure that the desired dose is given to the cancer and the dose to normal tissues are minimized.
The downside to becoming a doctor, I think, is it’s a very long process; four years of medical school, three years of internship, two years of residency, umpteen years of specialization, and then finally you get to be what you have trained almost all your life for.
I don’t think there’s any independent cartoonist whose stuff I don’t like or respect in at least some way or another. We’re all marginal laborers – we’re practically medical oddities – so I don’t see why we can’t all be nice to each other.
