Prevention Is A Pillar Of Medicine

"Doctors own prevention. They invented it, from vaccines to clean water to preventive screening tests. Mainstream medicine was responsible for the greatest preventive achievement in history: the smallpox vaccine campaign succeeded in preventing anyone from ever getting smallpox again. I defy you to comb through historical records and find any doctor who ever said 'Let’s stop vaccinating for smallpox so we can make more money treating its victims.'”

If You Think Doctors Don’t Do Prevention, Think Again
