Il Secondo Cervello

By Michael D. Gershon

Note: it really is marked "Retailed" because it is a complimentary replica after buy of the paper format.

«Sappiamo che, in step with quanto il concetto possa apparire inadeguato, il sistema gastroenterico è dotato di un cervello. Lo sgradevole intestino è più intellettuale del cuore e potrebbe avere una capacità ““emozionale”” superiore. È il solo organo a contenere un sistema nervoso intrinseco in grado di mediare i riflessi in completa assenza di enter dal cervello o dal midollo spinale. L’’evoluzione ci ha giocato uno scherzetto. […] Il sistema nervoso enterico è una curiosità, un residuo che abbiamo conservato dal nostro passato evolutivo. Di certo, non pare qualcosa che possa attirare l’’interesse di tutti, invece dovrebbe. L’’evoluzione è un revisore potente. Le parti del corpo futili o non assolutamente necessarie hanno poche possibilità di farcela a superare le difficoltà della selezione naturale. Tuttavia, un sistema nervoso enterico è stato presente in ciascuno dei nostri predecessori nel corso dei milioni di anni di storia dell’’evoluzione che ci separa dal primo animale dotato di spina dorsale. Quindi, il sistema nervoso enterico deve essere più di una reliquia. Il sistema nervoso enterico è, di fatto, un centro di elaborazione dati moderno e pieno di vita, che ci consente di portare a termine alcuni compiti molto importanti e spiacevoli senza alcuno sforzo mentale.»

Money-Driven Medicine: The Real Reason Health Care Costs So Much

By Maggie Mahar

Why is treatment within the usa so pricey? for many years, americans have taken it as a question of religion that we spend extra simply because we've the easiest well-being care approach on this planet. yet as charges levitate, that argument turns into tougher to make. this present day, we spend two times up to Japan on well-being care—yet few could argue that our wellbeing and fitness care approach is two times as good.

Instead, startling new proof means that one out of each 3 of our future health care funds is squandered on pointless or redundant exams; unproven, occasionally undesirable systems; and overpriced medicines and units that, too frequently, are not any larger than the fewer dear items they've got replaced.

How did this take place? In Money-Driven Medicine, Maggie Mahar takes the reader behind the curtain of a $2 trillion to witness how billions of greenbacks are wasted in a Hobbesian market that pits the industry's avid gamers opposed to one another. In remarkably candid interviews, medical professionals, sanatorium directors, sufferers, overall healthiness care economists, company executives, and Wall highway analysts describe a struggle of "all opposed to all" which may flip physicians, hospitals, insurers, drugmakers, and machine makers into blood opponents. instead of taking part, medical professionals and hospitals compete. instead of sharing wisdom, drugmakers and machine makers divide worth. instead of brooding about long term collective objectives, the imperatives of an impatient industry strength health and wellbeing care services to target momentary economic imperatives. And so investments in untested bleeding-edge clinical applied sciences crowd out investments in details expertise that would, ultimately, not just decrease blunders yet include costs.

In conception, unfastened industry pageant may still tame health and wellbeing care inflation. actually, Mahar demonstrates, in terms of drugs, the conventional legislation of offer and insist don't observe. more often than not, while offer expands, costs fall. yet within the overall healthiness care undefined, because the quantity and diversity of gear, units, and coverings multiplies, call for rises to soak up the surplus, and costs climb. in the meantime, the perverse incentives of a fee-for-service approach gift healthiness care companies for doing extra, no longer less.

In this fantastically written publication, Mahar indicates why medical professionals needs to take accountability for the way forward for our well-being care undefined. this present day, she observes, "physicians were stripped in their status as execs: Insurers deal with them as owners ('Dear health and wellbeing Care Provider'), drugmakers and gadget makers see them as buyers (someone it's possible you'll take to lunch or a strip club), whereas . . . shoppers (aka sufferers) are inspired to work out their medical professionals as overpaid shops. . . . earlier than sufferers can reclaim their rightful position because the center—and certainly because the raison d'être—of our wellbeing and fitness care system," Mahar indicates, "we needs to once more empower medical professionals . . . to perform patient-centered medicine—based now not on company imperatives, medical professionals' druthers, or maybe sufferers' demands," yet at the top medical examine available.
