Description

Society today is paying a heavy price in disease and death for the monopolygranted the medical profession in the 1920's. In fact, the situation peculiarly resembles that of the 1830's when physicians relied on bloodletting, mercurial medicines, and quinine, even though knowing them to be intrinsically harmful and precisely the same arguments were made in defense of these medicines as are employed today, namely, that the benefits outweigh the risks. In truth, the benefits accrue to the physician, while the patient runs the risks.
