humor only a biologist could love

Ask Your Doctor

Yet another thing that bothers me a lot: pharmaceuticals advertising straight to consumers who, like, totally slept through the one semester of biology they were forced to take in high school. Do you really think you’re qualified to know what’s right for you when a) you honestly just would not understand what pathways a drug is acting on and where those pathways are, and b) you’re talking to someone who willingly went through four+ years of mind-numbing hell to treat you?

Seriously. Leave the doctoring to the doctors and the thinking to the real scientists. (At least where this stuff goes. I wouldn’t trust a scientist-king ever.)
