The Greening of Medicine - Patrick Pietroni

Victor Gollancz, 1990, Hardback in Dustwrapper..

The 1990s herald a new age of Green consciousness, an awareness of the importance of our relationships with the environment, with our fellow human beings and with our inner selves. In this hard-hitting book Dr Pietroni cogently reappraises medicine's current entrenched position, and calls for a renaissance in medical thought. As the medical profession's power becomes eroded by bureaucratisation, authoritarian attitudes and a reliance on drugs and high-tech surgery, patients are demanding more than a narrowly scientific approach to their health problems.
