Ethics in Healthcare: Gluten & Red Meat & GMOs: Oh My!
When did eating become so complicated? In the old days, you could walk into your favorite restaurant and order a hamburger, fries and soda, and then sit back and enjoy. Today, no way! Why is that? Because today, you ought to ask yourself:
- Should you eat the red meat because its associated with heart disease, stroke and cancer?
- Should you eat the bun because theres gluten in it?
- Should you drink the soda because excess sugar leads to diabetes, and if its a diet soda, are you being harmed by the artificial sweeteners?
- Should you be concerned about possible GMOs in every part of this meal?
