                       The greatest medical discovery  is the realization that medicine is an constantly evolving science. It needs lot of knowledge to know our ignorance . Common sense has probably saved more lives and reduced suffering in this world than any other single discovery. Note this glaring irony ! It has required a large multi national long term follow  up study (INTERHERT) to prove exercise and physical activity is good for health.

Another great development is the freedom of expression and democracy in medicine,  for which journals like BMJ, Internet are striving hard . . .
