Because of nonspecific symptoms purchase baclofen 10 mg muscle relaxant bodybuilding, many cases of peptic ulcer and gallstones discount 10 mg baclofen fast delivery muscle relaxant otc meds, for example, re­ main undetected. Nevertheless, digestive disease ranks second only to circulatory disorders as a cause of workdays lost per year. And research funds are disproportionately spent in other areas, particularly those that have strong lobbies, such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy. Despite its limitations and despite its questionable priorities, the medical care system continues to grow and consume m ore and m ore resources. Some of the most trenchant thinking about the effectiveness o f medical care has been done by A. In Effectiveness and Efficiency,43 Cochrane concludes that the National Health Service has had little to do with improving mortality and morbidity rates. He acknowledges the effectiveness of some medications for some conditions; strikes a loud note for preventive measures such as im m uni­ The Impact of Medical Care on Health Status 23 zation and curtailm ent o f population growth and cigarette smoking; expresses doubt about some tried and true mea­ sures, including the pap sm ear and the coronary care unit; and, almost hesitatingly, argues that further developm ent of medical therapies should be deferred until definitive proof of their effectiveness is available. T o read Cochrane is to conclude with him that little of medical care is effective and that health will never be the exclusive product of medical care—there are too many other factors. W hen somebody gets the flu, the advice given by both the professional practitioner and the am ateur diagnostician is the same—wait it out. Several researchers have established the rarity of cancers, vascular disorders, and other degenerative diseases am ong primitive popula­ tions. Unique geographical and cultural factors affect both the incidence and control of certain dis­ eases. In the nineteenth century, at the height of the Industrial Revolution, thousands of migrants were compressed into urban industrial sinks. But despite the hum an loss, enorm ous in some cases, people in most affluent countries have adopted to urban conditions (and, of course, the conditions have been im proved as well). T o use a concrete example, the devas­ tating disease known as “consum ption” in the nineteenth century is now understood to have been pulm onary tuber­ culosis. Although the virulence of the bacilli is as great now as it was then, our adaptive response has come to blunt its 24 The Impact of Medicine severity. In short, both the types of disease and the patterns of disease reflect prevalent conditions in a given culture. To quote Rene Dubos: W ithout question, nutritional and infectious diseases account for the largest percentage of morbidity and mortality in most underprivileged countries, especially in those just becoming industrialized. Undernutrition, protein deficiency, malaria, tuberculosis, infestation with worms, and a host of ill-defined gastrointestinal disorders are today the greatest killers in these countries, just as they used to be in the Western world one century ago. In contrast, the toll taken by malnutrition and infection decreases rapidly wherever and whenever the living standards improve, but other diseases then become more prev­ alent. In prosperous countries at the present time, heart dis­ eases constitute the leading cause of death, with cancers in the second place, vascular lesions affecting the central nervous system in the third, and accidents in the fourth. Increasingly also, persons who are well fed and well sheltered suffer from a variety of chronic disorders, such as arthritis and allergies, that do not destroy life but often ruin it. Increased longevity, re ­ ductions in m aternal and infant m ortality, and o th er related im provem ents are not owed to m edicine. Diseases associated with industrialization— largely infectious disorders— were tam ed in developed cultures.
