Medicine grounds me, it centers me, that's why I continue to do it.
Medicine has always been my calling.
I have written two medical novels. I have never studied medicine, never seen an operation.
The track record of economists in predicting events is monstrously bad. It is beyond simplification; it is like medieval medicine.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
People need medicine and they need therapists.
Ethics is not routinely taught to science students except in medicine, and I think it should be.
There are good reasons why we don't want everyone to learn nuclear physics, medicine or how financial markets work. Our entire modern project has been about delegating power over us to skilled people who want to do the work and be rewarded accordingly.
I think eventually they're going to find out that MS is like 10 different things. I have a neurological disease something like MS, and it's MS, so let's take medicine for it.
Mind-body medicine should not be an 'alternative,' nor should complementary and integrative medicine be something doctors are not exposed to during their training.
I don't believe in technological determinism, especially not in biology and medicine. We have strong laws to keep doctors from monkeying around with humans that will remain in place. It's simply not true that everything that is technologically possible gets done.

Making personalized medicine a reality will require a strong partnership between 23andMe and the physician and medical communities.

The 'find it, fix it 'model of medicine doesn't work any more. The U.S. healthcare system is bankrupting the country, bankrolling the insurance companies and exhausting healthcare staff. And despite all that, we are ranked 50th in the world for life expectancy.
The whole imposing edifice of modern medicine is like the celebrated tower of Pisa - slightly off balance.
