This morning I watched a video that made me LAUGH OUT LOUD…I mean, really burst out laughing (even the second time I watched it). Obviously, I DISAGREE with the remarks made at the end…Still, I found it simply hilarious…
Hope you enjoy this: http://goo.gl/57lFV
And now for a more, a much more!, serious topic that has nothing to do with my less-than-serious blog title (which refers to the above video…).
“Why do we have people being treated like cattle herds? That’s waste! And the billions of dollars that’s being wasted each year for screening, and the wrong drugs, and the wrong everything. It’s astounding. And we just can’t go on like this,” says Dr. Eric Topol during a recent, fascinating NBC “Rock Center” interview: http://goo.gl/q9vKz
Now, I have to admit that I’m more than a bit concerned about the use of all these “waves” and future “little grains of sand” sitting inside our bloodstream and sending out signals to our smart phones. Still, I really liked what he said about the wasteful nature of medicine today (towards the end of the interview) and “dumbing down” medicine and treating everyone the same…This doesn’t just apply to heart patients, as we well know…
P.S. I’m working on my smoldering post, so…stay tuned!!! 🙂
