Doctors are the frontline force against diseases. They get their hands dirty. They are the soldiers in the war for better health. However the practice of medical diagnosis is very often, in my very humble and frankly honest opinion, to be one that is highly speculative, very unsciencelike and plagued by a lot of speculation, guesswork, mistakes and ignorance. Regardless though, doctors and their diagnosis, are still required in the daily function of society. What gets me going, is that doctors gain more praise from the public over actual scientists and medical reseachers - whom are the ones who do the real work and deals with the actual sciences. In fact the field of medical research are often viewed as evil big pharamacueticals out to sell you expensive medicination for big bucks, when really, medicial researchers/pharmacueticals are the ones responsible for all the medication that leads to the cure of many diseases. Not to mention, the average medical researcher is much more intelligent than the average practicing doctor, and especially so in their understanding of the sciences of medicine/immunology/physiology/etc and all branches of sciences. What do you think about the general practice of diagnosis by doctors?
