ezs note:  Yeah... this is a really long article.  It also is difficult to read, even when you are fairly erudite.  However, it is also one of the most seminal articles you will ever read.  It is published by The Lancet, which, besides The New England Journal of Medicine, is without peer.  Please download the article and send it to your doctor, her/his nurses, and legislators.
