"The end of diseases" by David Agus, interview from Daily Show with Jon Stewart So, I just saw this and I thought it to be rather interesting http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-february-2-2012/david-agus He is being interviewed for a book he wrote about his view on health and its issues and their resolutions in American society. The interview is short, but for example he says that he believes inflammation is the cause of many diseases, and that apparently aspirine prevents this and how he believes it should be mandated. He also gives the view that the discovery of bacteria and viruses as the causes of diseases also had a negative influence: diseases became something with a known one-for-all-people cure, whereas diseases like cancer are totally different and are more body-dependent. He also encourages things like moving more, not really surprising, but he interjects it with interesting data. I thought it was a short, entertaining interview. Sadly I know close to nothing about it, so I'm not sure what to make out of it. Is he credible? Or a fringe guy? Is it main-stream? Or controversial? And also: what's your take on the matter? And is the aspirin thing true?
