*246 - How Medical Sciences Works

When u read a medical or health article... do u notice something special bout it? its like a new way of writing an article totally different and unique to other kinds of work...

A very good example which u may be familiar of...
"High blood cholesterol level may increase risk of stroke"

Noticed something? Anything?

I'd been observing these few years ago and i'll say that science, health sciences especially is NOT DEFINITIVE...

So wat do u mean by MAY INCREASE RISK of stroke? does it cause stroke? does everyone with high cholesterol gets stroke? do it mean it maybe increase ur risk or it may not be?

We are studying and researching health sciences using statistic... considering all the variations, exceptions and individuality... everything is in percentage... how u can really understand health sciences?

In my opinion... one needs to know the true pathology, or physiology of the disease... u'll need to know how stroke develop... wat's the process that cause blood vessels blockage in the brain... then u evaluate urself wat factors can affect the pathways of the process...

Whey im writing this? coz most of the time wat public gets from a medical journal or article may not be the most correct info... they may understand the wrong concept... from the above example... it doesnt mean that reducing ur cholesterol intake will reduce ur blood cholesterol and helped on ur stroke...

How much do u agree with me?
