Cut Medicine in Half

[F]ew doctors know that historians think medicine has played at best a minor role in our increased lifespans over the centuries. And only a few health policy experts now know about the dozens of studies of the aggregate health effects of medicine.

Interesting, I've argued along similar lines for some time. Nice to know I'm not the only one.
