Jun 9, 2015

It’s not the best title but it gets your attention. We discuss robots at McDonald’s, grip strength and life expectancy, screening for cancer, and the cesspool of the US pharmaceutical industry, which makes FIFA look clean by comparison.

Tip: Fee for service is the financial basis for our current healthcare system. The more things we doctors do to you, the more we get paid. It is time to pay doctors for keeping you healthy and alive, not doing procedures.
