Cancer kills people because it cares about nothing except its own self-interest. Don’t be like cancer.

Aggregate out-of-pocket spending by people with Medicare Part D for #insulin products quadrupled between 2007 to 2017 -- from $236 million to $984 million. This reflects both an increase in the number of users and price increases for insulin.

One thing I’ll never understand is why some people assume there are no shifts in public opinion. Here’s one: support for Black Lives Matter over the last few weeks and years.

In nearly 4 months of #COVID19 I have learned that what pays off more is to do simple things well on every patient. There are no magic bullets. What a team of professionals with competence and humanity can pull together at the bedside goes a long way and can save many lives.

We don’t need satire. We don’t need humour. We don’t need mockery. We need organisation. We need alternatives. We need rebellion. Against a government that has fostered corruption, collusion, and criminality. A government that has presided over the avoidable deaths of thousands.

Abbiamo prove certe che le disuguaglianze di salute siano determinate dalle disuguaglianze socio-economiche. Delegare ai soli sistemi sanitari la ricerca di una soluzione a un problema sociale non ci ha aiutato molto finora. Servono anche soluzioni sociali, oltre che tecniche.

“The pandemic not only provides lessons about the judicious use of antibiotics, but it also highlights another global health threat that has been playing out in slow motion: the mounting threat of antimicrobial resistance.

The pandemic offers great opportunities to fraudsters of all sorts, including “scientists”.

There is confusion between evidence-based MEDICINE, clinical epidemiology, and epidemiology. EBM is a method of patient care. The others are research disciplines. Clinical Epi (like physiology or pharmacology) supports EBM. Epi supports practice of e-b public health

Moving to relax lockdown does NOT appear to be based on best scientific advice. What’s going on? When government does things they think are unpopular, they say “it’s the science.” When they want to do it, they ignore the science

BTW #ASCO20, I’m seeing some “medical writing and editorial assistance” funded by Pharma in some of the presentation slides. Even slides? You mean Pharma paid medical writers to create those slides that you just so proudly read aloud?

Pulling out of WHO is a disaster for the lives and health of all people, including Americans. I can’t imagine a worse thing to do in the midst of a pandemic and ongoing work to fight back TB, HIV, polio, and other health threats. America First does not work for global disease.

I’ve great respect for scientists who appear at the daily UK briefings but it’s unfair to ask them to appear with ministers. After today’s charade we must separate science from politics & have scientists engage with science journalists.
