To a hammer the world is a nail. Should we be surprised cardiologists recommend increased utilization of statin drugs
? I think not. It is what they do. For prevention physicians think in terms of sickness. But good health is not just a byproduct, it must be pursued with dedication and vigor and a sickness mind-set obstructs the pathway. Meanwhile, the public is only too willing to go along. They have been conditioned to think in terms of medical care and taking a drug is so much easier than ceasing to smoke, exercise more and eat vegetables. The fact that drugs don't deliver as promised is something they discover too late. Science has not eliminated mysticism from medical care, it has become its own brand of mysticism.
