    Michel and “Medical Nemesis” are espousing an old-fashioned and intellectually lazy form of therapeutic nihilism. Throughout the discussion I wondered why Michel bothers going to work at all rather than standing on a street corner admonishing passers-by that they’d be much healthier if they simply avoided becoming ill.

    Historically speaking, poliomyelitis was a disease associated with certain kinds of paralysis. At what point did evidence show poliomyelitis was a contagious disease, to the exclusion of other potential causes, and what was the soundness of that evidence?

    What a lively debate (at times an argument)! Indeed medicine and public health advance with mistakes and failures. The ethical failures of this bumbling forward are incurred when the experts and authorities adopt coercion, lies and manipulation as their tools.
