The Medical Profession

“I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and  Panacea… to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:  …I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.”
An article published in the September issue of the Journal of Patient Safety estimates that there are between 210,000 and 400,000 deaths per year associated with medical errors in hospitals. That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer.”

We’ve come a long way from the Hippocratic Oath which dates back to late 5th century BC. Nowadays, we no longer heal people. We eliminate symptoms, no matter what side effects this process might entail. Were we to heal them, surely, we’d lose clients. Wouldn’t be good for business, would it?
No. Not all physicians are like that, and not all bankers, politicians and lawyers are crooks. Some are the nicest people you’d hope to meet. Kind, generous, magnanimous…
Nice people—like you and me…
But “the Many”, the vast majority do not seem bound by any code of ethics.
For many years I’d practiced architecture. If the building I designed fell down, or the roof leaked, or insulation was insufficient, I just wouldn’t get paid. And surely, that is as it should be.

We seem preoccupied with the effect, while studiously avoiding delving into the cause. It started with the Big Bang. There was nothing, not even space, and then nothing exploded and continues to explode. Scientists seem bent on pushing such nonsense to their adherents, while admitting what, if anything, nothings consists or consisted of nothing. Yet should someone dare to say God, they rise up in arms, claiming that god is not science. How would they know? Perhaps god has a string of Ph.D.s, dozens and dozens of them, and knows precisely how to explode nothing. The scientists obviously have no idea how.
The medical profession perpetrates a very similar sham. Most of the time they seem preoccupied with the effects. They say little or nothing about how to avoid acquiring various diseases, and then get busy fighting, often ineptly, the effects. They seem to forget that nature has disposed our organism to survive millions of years without their interference. The system nature invented is called the immune system. On occasion the medical profession try to emulate nature by inventing some sera, which, on occasion, do some good. The rest of the time they deal with effects.
Admittedly, this is good for business.
Should everyone live in a manner that reduced various diseases (and we all can), the learned MDs would be out of a job, let alone out of money. The same goes, of course, for the pharmaceutical conglomerates.
Their maxim seems to be:
“Help them, enough to survive, but for heaven’s sake don’t cure them. What would we do with all the chemicals we’ve already produced?”
What do you think?

Your thoughts are important to me


  1. 3rd leading cause of death is a misleading conclusion though, isn't it, since zero medical intervention would result in far more deaths, many from situations we no longer even consider dangerous.

  2. I suggest you direct your complaints to the Journal of Patient Safety. Perhaps they know as much about patients safety as you do. In this blog I relied on their expertise.
