Advances in Technology and Medicine
I've been thinking about some of the major advances in medical technology over the past decade. We've seen some significant new drugs, new drug delivery systems, and tremendous innovations in medical devices. These advances have improved the care of acute and chronic medical conditions and have taken the field of medicine to a whole new level. Despite our growing understanding of the medical science, healthcare professionals still admit that there are many medical phenomenons that we simply can't explain. For instance, the spontaneous regression of cancer is something that we as medical professionals can't really explain. Will advances in medical technology someday provide us with a clear explanation?
