Modern medicine

I hear a lot of talk and items in the media about natural medicines and home cures. They always seem to be touted as if they are better than modern medicine, and there is the additional implication that medical researchers and doctors have somehow lost touch with the old ways. While I admit that the bureaucracy around medicine is fairly bad, the medicine itself is very good.

While I could wax on about the logical faults in he alternative medicine chest of arguments, I will just say that without modern medicine I would be dead, my wife would be dead, and my son would have never been born.
