  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: The soda wars have taken a new turn. No longer is it a battle between Coke and Pepsi to see who wins in a blind taste test. Today's soda war is between the consumer and the gigantic multinational beverage companies whose sales are plummeting. Evidence is pointing to sodas as one of the major contributors to obesity, and taxes are being slapped on what many are now calling "liquid candy."Sugar-sweetened beverages and their purveyors have been around for over a century, but not until recently have they come under attack by public health officials and nutritionists. One reason these companies have sailed by for years relatively unscathed is that they have done an astonishing job at telling their story to the public ... Read More

  • Taxing Soda: Strategies for Dealing with the Obesity and Diabetes Epidemic
    • Abstract: Obesity is one of the most common health problems facing children and society today. Since 1960, the obesity rate among adults has risen to 34% in the United States, and morbid obesity is up six-fold (Glickman et al. 2012). In 1980, only 14% of adult Americans were obese, but this figure had skyrocketed to 31% by 2000 (nearly 85 million Americans). Two out of three Americans today are overweight or obese, and one in 20 suffers from extreme obesity. In 2012, Reuters reported that obesity in America added $190 billion to annual national health-care costs, passing smoking for the first time (Begley 2012).Following closely on the heels of this epidemic is an explosion in the number of cases of diabetes, particularly ...

  • Physicians Can Impact Patient Health
    • Abstract: If physicians and health practitioners could do one thing to markedly improve the health of their patients, what could that be' Counsel them to reduce or stop drinking sugar-sweetened beverages.The science is clear: sodas, juice drinks, iced teas, and vitamin, sports, and energy drinks provide the largest source of empty or non-nutritional calories in the American diet and accounted for an astonishing 46% of all added sugars consumed in 2010 (USDA/HHS 2010). Sodas top the list of all sugar-sweetened beverages consumed, with the soda industry producing nearly one 12-ounce serving per person per day in 2011 (Andreyeva, Chaloupa, and Brownell 2011).While it's true that sugar consumption has decreased in recent years ...

  • Reassessing Diagrams of Cardiac Mechanics: From Otto Frank and Ernest
           Starling to Hiroyuki Suga
    • Abstract: The main topic of this article is Otto Frank's (1897, 1899) forgotten notion of the pressure-volume diagram of the cardiac ventricle as a means to assess the external mechanical work of the heart. Developed by Frank at the end of the 19th century, this idea was reenvisioned as pressure-volume area (PVA) about 70 to 80 years later by Hiroyuki Suga (1969, 1979). This notion now serves as a perspective for defining cardiac contractility and thus enabling the controlled clinical application of cardiac assist devices. We begin our discussion, however, with the work of Ernest H. Starling, whose dominant influence on the thinking of cardio-physiologists led to a neglect of some of the fundamental insights of Frank's ... Read More

  • The Research Optimist's Defense
    • Abstract: Clinical researchers are commonly accused of being overconfident and overly optimistic. They are charged with overestimating their ability to recruit patients to trials and to end trials on time. They are also accused of overestimating effect sizes in power calculations, of overestimating the promise of new interventions, and of conveying this pronounced optimism to human research subjects (Anderson et al. 2012; Chalmers and Matthews 2006; Galbreath et al. 2008; Kimmelman and Palmour 2005). More broadly, medical scientists are accused of underestimating timelines for the maturation of research programs, or overstating the potential of their research to deliver clinical applications (Caulfield et al. 2016).However ...

    • Abstract: According to Father Patrick Verspieren (1986), a Roman Catholic priest and member of the Society of Jesus, the chief duty of the palliative care-giver is to suspend all preconceptions of the incurably ill patient's journey to life's end: "To accompany a dying patient is not to walk ahead of him, or to show him the right path, or to impose an itinerary on him, or even to presume to know what direction he will take. Rather, it consists in walking at the patient's side, leaving him free to choose his own way and the rhythm of his own step" (183). Is it possible, in practice, to suspend one's judgment regarding what is best for a dying patient and to respect the uncharted horizon that presents itself to each dying ... Read More

  • Beware Dichotomies
    • Abstract: That dichotomization is, at least under certain circumstances, a bad idea is not news. A well-known, early example is the biblical story of King Solomon, who used the absurdity of the procedure to help adjudicate a dispute between two women who each claimed to be the mother of a contested child. Solomon reasoned that his proposal to split the child into two, giving half to each woman, would be abhorrent to the real mother, and when one of the women objected while the other thought the proposal was "only fair," the choice between the women was made obvious.Things, however, are not always so clear-cut, and it is not difficult to find arguments that point to the advantages that accrue to those that simplify matters. ...

  • Public Health Approaches and the Human Enhancement Debate
    • Abstract: Cognitive enhancement (CE) refers to any technology that raises some aspect of cognition beyond the species-typical level. It is often considered distinct from and less controversial than cognitive therapy (CT), which raises the cognition of a deficient individual to the species-typical level. The debate over CE is a result of the excitement surrounding the potential of neuroscience to one day enable us to enhance our own cognition in significant ways. Some of the aspects of cognition targeted by enhancement and therapeutic technologies include wakefulness, focus, memory, and executive function, or the ability to plan, organize, and complete tasks (Wolpe 2002). We all regularly use cognitive enhancers without ... Read More

  • Situating Social Differences in Health and Illness Practices
    • Abstract: In most countries in the global north, social differences in health status and disease prevalence and outcomes are persistent and growing (Marmot et al. 2008; Pickett and Wilkinson 2014). This is also the case in the welfare states of Scandinavia (Diderichsen, Andersen, and Manuel 2011). In Denmark, the empirical point of departure for this article, income inequality is relatively low and social mobility is generally considered to be high (Causa et al. 2016). One of the ideals of the Danish welfare state is that all citizens have free and open access to the tax-funded health-care system. All Danish citizens can register at a general practice, which serves as the gatekeeper for more specialized health-care ... Read More

  • Dear Dr. Peabody
    • Abstract: Francis W. Peabody, MDDepartment of MedicineBoston City Hospital and Harvard Medical SchoolBoston, MassachusettsMarch 19, 2017Dear Dr. Peabody,Thank you for giving us the opportunity to review your manuscript "The Care of the Patient." It has been carefully considered by the editors and two external reviewers. We regret to inform you that it cannot be considered further for publication in the Prestigious Journal of Medicine.Chief among our reasons is that it is overly long. Opinion pieces—especially non-data driven articles about topics like ethics—should be no longer than 1,000 words. Compounding matters, the lack of graphics or tables makes the paper difficult to digest efficiently. We also agree with the ... Read More

  • The Need for Uncertainty: A Case for Prognostic Silence
    • Abstract: No fact in human nature is more characteristic than its willingness to live on a chance. The existence of the chance makes the difference between a life of which the keynote is resignation and a life of which the keynote is hope.Powerful forces are promoting the ideal of prognostic disclosure in endof-life care. Advances in the science of prognostication—ranging from increasingly accurate clinical prediction models to new genomic risk factors—are expanding the supply of prognostic information. Meanwhile, the growing palliative medicine and shared decision-making movements are heightening the demand to disclose prognosis to seriously ill patients. Prognostic disclosure is thought to be beneficial in facilitating ... Read More

  • Virtue Ethics in Monetized Medicine
    • Abstract: During Abraham Nussbaum's first year of medical school, he participated in a white coat ceremony and was invested, literally, with a white coat that is symbolic of entry into the medical profession. He was also given a book, an anthology of writings on medicine that Nussbaum (2016) describes as having a "wistful quality" and being "engaging but reverential" (45); the dust jacket featured a Norman Rockwell painting. He later went to a second-hand bookstore and traded the anthology for Abraham Verghese's 1994 memoir, My Own Country, an excerpt from which was in the anthology. For Nussbaum, struggling to figure out what it means to be a doctor, Verghese's writing "portrays the physician as the storyteller of his ... Read More

  • Facing Death
    • Abstract: Something has changed in America with respect to facing death. As I write this review of When Breath Becomes Air (2016) by Paul Kalanithi, it is number one on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller's list; number 10 is Being Mortal (2014) by Atul Gawande, on the list for 62 weeks. A few years ago, Christopher Hitchens's Mortality (2012), a remarkable narrative of his living in the face of dying from esophageal cancer, also was a bestseller. While denial of death was thought to be an American characteristic, this may be true no longer; or at least the public shows a strong interest in narratives about mortality.To what extent does the appetite of the reading public signify a changed perspective on mortality' ...
