When I was a medical student, there were lots of debates about the relevance of drug testing as it was mostly carried out on young healthy students in need of extra funds to get through university. This often included drugs for the elderly, so we often wondered about its relevance and safety. Now much drug testing happens in poor countries, so adding all sorts of extra variables, such as blood types, diet, environment etc.
But here’s a TED talk that is truly ground breaking. We know that male and female bodies are different, but until now, this has been largely ignored in drug prescription and emergency medicine. Watch this, and next time you go to a doctor, you may want to ask some extra questions about your treatment.
