Philosophy Wire: Doctors and “doctors”…

_61631538_61631537Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-07-17]: India's Chhattisgarh state is probing reports that thousands of women had unnecessary hysterectomies so private hospitals could make insurance claims. They were carried out under a national insurance scheme whereby private hospitals claim for treating patients who cannot afford expensive procedures. Officials estimate more than 2,000 women were talked into having their wombs removed in the last six months [source: BBC News]. Unfortunately the world medical system is so much corroded by money that one cannot just trust a doctor any more… The oath of Hippocrates belongs to a different era. The only weapon “simple people” have is common sense: practice it thoroughly! Do not trust someone just because he is labeled “doctor”! Question his suggestions! Ask someone else as well! Read on your own! Get informed!
