Focus Forward: An Age of Misinformation?

Posted 01 April 2008 | By

Recently, I was at a social gathering with a group of well-educated, middle-aged professionals (none of whom are in health-related fields). The conversations moved among many different hot topics-from economics to politics, global warming, and eventually on to health. These individuals are very health-conscious and are all consumers of various health products. It was interesting to hear them react to media coverage of health product "alerts," recalls and safety concerns on one hand, balanced by questions about why we can't come up with more-effective management of various diseases.
