Why Aren't Physicians and Medical Centers Acting on Blastocystis?
People who are sick with Blastocystis often wonder why nobody in the medical community aren't taking action on Blastocystis. The answer may come from an article in today's New York Times that described overdoses of radiation given to patients who were seen at the Cedars-Sinai medical center in California.
The article described how altered settings on a piece of equipment lead to severe radiation overdoses in many patients. More importantly, it described how medical staff would not admit to the problem, and placed an excessive amount of trust in procedures even when it was obvious they were causing harm to patients.
The case with Blastocystis is much the same. If physicians will ignore severe radiation overdoses in patients, why wouldn't they also ignore a long term gastrointestinal illness.
