Will Socialized Medicine Cure Iatrogenesis?


Got ya there, eh?

[Iatrogenesis, with] 225,000 deaths per year constitutes the third leading cause of death in the United States, after deaths from heart disease and cancer. Also, there is a wide margin between these numbers of deaths and the next leading cause of death (cerebrovascular disease).

The answer to the question: Socialized medicine WILL reduce iatrogenesis.

See the link to Wiki to figure out why, and a big HT to Arms and the Law.

Dad, I am not understanding - won't socialized medicine increase iatrogenesis, not cure it? Or are you suggesting that, because there willbe less health care, there will be less iatrogenesis?
