One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.

I once, when I worked in Hamilton, Ontario, at McMaster University, lived on the edge of the village where Osler was born.

that's cool...

i always thought it was weird when my friends at school was sick and booked off for a week with 5 different pills/medicine when they had a runny nose.

glad my dad's a doc. ive never been to one to this day and just get through a normal 'under the weather'. i prob saved a lot of money through the years.

suppose that's why we never had overseas trips!

i feel the same bout anti depr. some people really need it, i know, but i have friends who's been on it for years and years without counselling. so the issues and problem are just supressed and not worked on. i just dont agree with this kind of thing. especially when you take sleeping pills with anti depressants and calming tablets. like my one friend, and this was given by a doc not a psychiatrist!

i know some things must be fixed with medicine, but i suppose people just want to fix it too easily and quickly without changing lifestyles.

anyhow...for what it's worth..
