1. I found to be interesting or fun, and/or
2. Have some connection (however tenuous) to Correctional Medicine.
I will add articles at least weekly. Have fun!
The Military’s Billion Dollar Pill Problem. Should be required reading for all correctional medical professionals!
Is Medical Marijuana Good Medical Therapy? Answer: No.
Too Much Medical Care?. Great article!
Breeding Flavor out of Vegetables. I can say from personal experience (out of my wife’s garden) that funny looking Heirloom Tomatoes (which are rarely red) are delicious–way more flavorful than the supermarket variety!
Commitment to Exercise. I have to admit that I exercise not because it is good for me. That is just a side benefit. I exercise because I like to. How do you get people who do not like to exercise to do it?
What Vietnam Taught us About Breaking Bad habits. This is a great article about getting Vietnam vets off of heroin.
Taking Aim at the Baby Name. (The best awful real baby name I ran across in my years as an emergency physician was “Meconium.” If you are not sure what that is, look it up!)
Treating a Nation of Anxious Wimps (by an ER doctor).
From Evidence-based Medicine to Marketing-based Medicine. (Editor’s note: Leave the lights on when you read this scary article!)
