Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Every once in awhile an article is written that begs this question… Hey, do you trust the medical community?

Well, I don’t! There's a constant boast coming out of this community, that only "they" (believers that a medical degree, means GOD, alumni) can make you live longer, as though all those millions of years of evolution that had gradually eliminated (take or leave a million years or so) the weak so they no longer reproduce, allowing the strong to multiply (until an ice age or global warming event made extinct the healthy strong ones, who could not adapt, through no fault of their own) were all for naught. “They” convince us that if we don’t DOCTOR and swallow Big Pharma's pills, we will die much sooner than we would like to. Most of the time early death comes by outside (our body) influences; such as polluted air, contaminated water and food, and MARKETERS who advertise and brainwash us to buy products that they are quite aware will eventually make us very sick and, in the course of time, bump us off. (Oh, and let us not forget Guns legally carried around by any nut with a chip on his shoulder.) In our culture of greed, if there’s a buck to be made, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

And that’s the truth (as I see it)… pfffft! thinkingblue

Post Script: There are many who dream of helping humanity by achieving an education and attaining a degree in medicine to actualize this dream. These people wish to end suffering for many and save lives without a lucrative compensation being the first priority. These professionals deserve respect and are a tribute to all that is good in this existence.
