Laughter is the Best Medicine

Remember Norman Cousins? He used laughter to get himself out of his death bed when drugs didn’t work.

Dr. Whitaker reports in his latest newsletter than adverse drug events rose 260% since 1998 and deaths induced by these events rose by 270%. Medical error was already the third leading cause of death in the U.S., largely due to adverse drug events. It may eventually exceed cancer deaths and become the second leading cause of death, assuming cancer deaths do not increase faster than drug induced deaths.

Well it is all about the money. When you are fat, dumb, and sick you take a lot of drugs and they keep you that way. The best we can probably do about it (other than just say no) is to laugh a lot and Bill Maher will definitely make you chuckle. There is nothing like a little gallows humor to make your day!
