The 13 biggest health and science questions facing the nation

  1. ‘The 13 biggest health and science questions facing the nation’

    Surely you jest.

  2. “They say they value science and then cut 1500 scientists from federal institutions and muzzle those who remain.”

    How long before these ‘cuts’ come back to haunt us?

  3. In Quebec we cut the Doctors pay and only allowed a select amount patients per doctor,so they just go work in private clinics,to make up for the lost money,is this comming back to bite us,i would say YES!

  4. Short term remedies for long term problems,system stinks!

  5. Abuses are well hidden within the system so the public is unable to get a true picture of what really goes on in healthcare.
