Both/And: Faith with Pharmacy

Date: 09/17/2009

It's not either or, this or that, prayer or medicine, faith or pharmacy. God heals, and he often uses the wisdom he's given medical experts to aid the body's natural restoration processes. We've all heard of tragic stories - people who choose for themselves - or more horribly - for their children, to trust in prayer and deny medical treatment. Why does it have to be one OR the other? Why can't w ...

Praying with our Heads Screwed on

Date: 09/17/2009

An  image of the H1N1 virus. Knowledge is power... The first rule in war: "know your enemy." At this moment the world is facing invasion from a microscopic but deadly beast.

The Sick Traveler: An Easy Person to Hate

Date: 09/12/2009

Last weekend I returned from a lovely, restful weekend trip to San Francisco. As I boarded the red-eye back to New York, I found myself hoping that just this once, I would have the ideal flying neighbor--the non-existent one. What I got instead was a middle-aged man, sniffling, sneezing, coughing his way through the 5-hour trip. I am the opposite of a hypochondriac--I spend most of my time denyin ...

Factory farming and swine flu

Date: 09/02/2009

Excerpt: Factory farming and long-distance live animal transport apparently led to the emergence of the ancestors of the current swine flu threat.
