Rise & Fall of Modern Medicine
James Le Fanu. The history of med. in the 50 years ranks as one of the most impressive epochs of human achievement, with its assault on polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, TB, rheumatoid arthritis, & schizophrenia; & tech’y. for open-heart surgery, transplantation & test-tube babies. Yet modern med. (MM) has to come to terms with a 4-layered paradox: disillusioned doctors; the rise in medically inspired obsession with trivial or nonexistent threats to health; the soaring popularity of alternative med. (AM); & the spiraling costs of health care. This book discusses the benefits brought about by MM & the paradox of its consequences, leaving doctors less fulfilled, the public more neurotic about its health, AM in the ascendancy & an explosion in health-service costs.
