Short post as the bulk of what I want folks to grasp is detailed elsewhere. The point is there is a growing cadre of healthcare technologist that is rapaciously applying new wave technology in the clinical setting. While this may read as a good idea you will note from past post that I have serious doubts regarding if it is efficacious to spend limited healthcare dollars for titillation of the morbidly obese WASP.
Think of it in this context. For every healthcare dollar spent in enabling frivolous technology for the service of a narrow demographic (i.e. WASP, landholders, republicans) that is one dollar not spent in delivering healthcare to 8.3 million U.S. children.
Read the facts and then decide what you choose to invest your healthcare dollar.
