Medicine For People!
I am so impressed with the level of research you must go through to provide the monthly newsletters Medicine-for-People. It is obvious you have a passion to provide medical information to the general public for which no strings are attached. How refreshing is this!
In this day, we are marketed beyond belief. We read and watch only to find that the underlying reason for most information is to sell something. Sometimes I feel we are in the Twilight Zone, with only a few left who can give us information that we need to prevent illness and lead a better quality life. This is not to say that doctors and those in the medical field are trying to take that away from us. I think they are in a survival mode as regulation, insurance and drug companies squeeze every bit of common sense out of them.
What you are offering via these newsletters is a service, and your expertise, experience and willingness to spend huge amounts of time in ongoing research should be compensated. I would be the first paying subscriber.
Thanks again and again,
Port Hadlock, WA

Frequently our patients tell us "I don't know what to believe about how to maintain health. First, the media says one thing, then the opposite." That is certainly true in these days of sound bites and five second experts. If you really want to know the facts, subscribe to "Medicine for People!" We give you the facts behind the healthscare (that's the correct spelling) headlines.
