Beware of Scare-care
Scare-care is a poor substitute for healthcare. Healthcare experts who manufacture public hysteria about controversial issues, without acknowledging the legitimacy of opposing points of view, are not advancing public health. Healthcare is not monolithic, and there are legitimate questions about such sacred cows as vaccines, statins, antibiotics, tranquilizers, antidepressants, and global warming (climate change). Healthcare requires balance and fairness, not bias or fear.
