why should we question the paradigm of trying to treat illness with the best available treatments?
Do you prefer that we ourselves remain completely in the dark? do you think we're incapable of reading and drawing inferences. Doctors do their best. And I don't feel that least bit foggy about the knowledge that I"ve acquired in this area. I don't know as much as a doctor-- especially a good one-- but so? I shouldn't have an opinion if I"ve read the literature?
I don't really get your point. We question the paradigm. Then what? It's not the paradigm that matters anyway, it's whether the treatments are helping people. And how to improve their helpfulness. And in case you haven't noticed, researchers are trying.
shall we sit here helplessly insisting nirvana descend? Predicting doom for anyone who dares try a less-then-guaranteed treatment? feel sorry for ourselves because it isn't different? curse our parents physiology and our own? what?
