Impact of Science on Society

Author: Dychtwald, K.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1986


An adaptation of a chapter in Pharmacy in the 21st Century (Bezold, C., et al Eds , Bethesda, Md: American Assoc of Colleges of Pharmacy, 1984). The great strides taken by Western medicine in recent decades have engendered new attitudes on the part of the people in industrialized countries-particularly in North America. These include a recognition that much ill health is caused by what is often referred to as "faulty lifestyles"-& that much of it is preventable. This situation is examined from the viewpoint of a U.S. consultant in the health field.
