Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Salt Initiative Backed by Health Professionals - Forbes.com

Salt Initiative Backed by Health Professionals - Forbes.com

It's about time. The association between sodium and hypertensive was known in the 50s.

Sometimes I think the profession is slow to take obvious public health initiatives because the profession depends on the pathology for it's revenue. The same may be true of drug companies. Curing cancer would surely lead to a loss of revenue. Wow, that's cynical.
