A statement by one of our readers, a retired doctor, that leaves us completely flabbergasted!
“On average it takes 17 years for breakthroughs in health to become common practice.”
Could this possibly be true??? Are the doctors you and I will see today and tomorrow unaware of breakthroughs in health that have occurred up to 17 years ago???

One of the most exciting health breakthroughs we’ve heard about for a long time is described in articles like this:-

And our guess would be that this is still true.
