What’s Making Us Sick Is an Epidemic of Diagnoses

I have a friend that really needs to read this article from the New York Times.

Especially this line:

"No one should take the process of making people into patients lightly. There are real drawbacks. Simply labeling people as diseased can make them feel anxious and vulnerable — a particular concern in children. "

Interesting article. Thanks, StuntMom!

On a somewhat related topic, I have an exciting feeling that the issue of healthcare is going to surface with the congress of 2008!
