I'm not sure I agree with the injection of Epicurianism into the discussion.

OTOH, I have to agree with the author's critique of the "health" care complex's nostrums that are pushed on the public, in no small way through TV "programming." We would indeed be better off with medicine commercials off TV, and doctors being able to be doctors.

BTW, I like the habit of Socrates-tsu of dancing every morning. Isn't there a Chinese martial art that's kind of close to that advice?
