is health care still in like the dark ages?

No.We have vanquished dozens of diseases to history's curiosity heap (ask your doctor if he's ever taken care of someone with polio).We have invented humane anesthesia for performing miraculous surgeries (coiling cerebral aneurysms, stenting coronary arteries, transplanting organs).We have doubled the human life expectancy in the last 100 years. A feat unequaled in the history of man.
It's worse than the Dark Ages. Churches took care of people back in the day.
mm - yes? no? possibly? what?
The dark ages during the plague which was thought to be caused by unhealthy night air? I don't think so.
In some ways, yes. By handing out drugs to kill all symptoms instead of finding the cause of the symptoms and using the body's own energy to heal, we're not moving ahead.I'm not anti-drug. I'm anti-really helping.
