The business of the body
The world is becoming a temple to wellness. Is this quackery?
piece on "wellness" - and its relation to quackery.
I particularly like the hook w/the 17th century "outstanding quack of all times" (tho I suspect he's been overtaken by recent competition).
Great piece summarizing the changing face of healthcare and how large companies are adapting. More focus on health & prevention, less on treatment; more focus on customers, less on providers. Capturing reliable data on what customers want/need will be key
The business of the body: Capitalists are worshipping at the temple of wellness. The bigger the business of mind and body becomes, the more likely it will be regulated and quality-controlled. That is a good thing
