  Classic Medical Articles

TIME Magazine, August 22, 1949, p. 22:

FOREIGN NEWS: Specs for the Osu
    The calling card gave the visitor's home address as Rolyat Castle, Accra, on West Africa's Gold Coast; his phone numbers, 337 and 406. He was Nii Kwabena Bonne III, Osu (chief) of Alata Manche, Oyokohene (headman) of Techeman, and general president of the Ga Football Association (Alata Manche, Techeman and Ga are states on West Africa's Gold Coast). Last week, the Osu flew some 3,000 miles to Britain, leaving twelve wives behind in his Accra palace. He landed at London Airport wearing red and green robes, a red hat spangled with jewels, and sandals whose soles were lined with silver. The Osu explained what had brought him to Britain: "I understand I can obtain free health treatment here. I think I will get a pair of spectacles."

    Chief Bonne was right about the free treatment.* The illustrious patient promptly had his eyes examined, but he would have to wait about five months for his specs. One million three hundred thousand plain Britons were in the queue ahead of him.

* An odd feature of the National Health Service is that all foreigners, whether they pay British taxes or not, are entitled to free treatment under the National Health Service Act. Last spring a doctor in Calais complained that his French patients were crossing the Channel to get free British treatment; some were reported to have resold their free dentures and spectacles on the Continent.

TIME Magazine, June 16, 1958, p42:

Survival of the Unfit?
    Medicine is growing ever more efficient in curing the ills of the human race. But is it simultaneously weakening the race by ensuring the survival of the unfit? The queston, largely academic in Nietzsche's day is being raised anew by a man who has done as much as anyone to help human survival: Rene Jules Dubos, pioneer in the field of microbiology, whose discoveries opened the era of antibiotics.

    "For the first time in the history of living things," said Dubos in Omaha, "we are allowing the survival of large numbers of biological misfits, many of whom will become a burden to society... All kinds of hereditary defects that used to be rapidly eliminated by evolutionary selection are now being reproduced in our communities. In other words, we are allowing the accumulation of defective genes in the human stock by providing a type of medical care that permits those suffering from hereditary disease to live longer and have children. This policy may constitute a step toward racial suicide, however noble it may appear in the light of our religious convictions and present-day ethics."
