You don't know whether you have a health condition if you don't consult a physician beforehand.

I don't know how we as a society came to accept physicians as the general arbiter of health, rather than as a mechanic that fixes us when we're broke, but a lot of why health care in this country is so expensive is due to that. Similarly, why education is so expensive is because we as a society have allowed the college degree to be the marker of who deserves opportunity or not.

Really sad.

In part because we came to assume that commercial speech was anything but self-serving: in this case, being litigation protection rather than public health.

Typically, you also don’t know that after you consult a physician.
