Follies and Fallacies in Medicine Translated from the English by Yves Morin. - Publication date : September 1, 1997
Too many useless prescriptions and rigid diagnoses are lurk behind the authority andgood conscience of official medicine, a profession concerned with maintaining the limits of its power and knowledge. This book denounces theillusions of the modern health religion and the dream of a world relieved of all illness. A professor at Trinity College, Petr Skrabanek is the enfantterrible of Irish medicine, while James McCormick accumulates those honors on the other side of the English Channel.
