Example text

In the days when the most serious threats to health were from infectious diseases, prevention was largely out of the individual’s control. Public health changes, improvements in sanitation and in food and water supplies made a huge difference, but even when measures could be taken by individuals to prevent disease, few people were in a position to make these changes. If disease was being spread because of overcrowding, only the wealthy few could afford to repair to their country homes to avoid the problem.

The obvious example here is the pharmaceutical industry. They certainly weren’t eager to announce that there was some evidence that common newer medications for arthritis are no better than aspirin or Tylenol, yet may cause serious heart problems. And they don’t want to publicize any potential risks of antidepressant medications or impotence drugs. They’re making buckets of money on this stuff. Other times, the hedging and fudging and occasional outright lying is done for less mercenary, but no less compelling reasons.

This is encouraging news at a time when the diseases we are at most risk of acquiring are diseases for which there are no definitive cures (and for which the treatments we do have are often as unpleasant as the disease itself, as with most cancers). If you don’t want to die of cancer or heart disease or complications of diabetes, your best bet is not to get these diseases in the first place. And while frequent news reports of medical breakthroughs often blind us to the less flashy progress of prevention, there is much encouraging news in the area of preventing these diseases.
