Photo Gallery: Medical Advertising from the 20th Century - remembering an era when doctors were always right and diversity was less expansive

Remember estrogen? While doing some research on the medical profession’s misadventures – the times it thought it was right, at great cost to itself and the patients, I stumbled on this year of the New York State Journal of Medicine (Scanned and @CreativeCommons licensed).

Just Read: Do low-carbon-emission diets lead to higher nutritional quality and positive health outcomes? A systematic review of the literature.

As the title says, this study looks at whether low-carbon-emission diets (typically those that include less meat, more grains) are correlated with better health. This is important because Climate change is a risk to human health. Climate change increases disparities because it disproportionally affects vulnerable populations. Diversity allows the human species to survive 🙂 Diets …

Photo Friday: Before there was the WELL Building Standard, there was Montgomery Meigs' Pension Building (now the National Building Museum)

This week’s photograph was taken at the former Pension building, now the National Building Museum, in Washington, DC USA.

The building was designed for health, way before …
