Recently I came upon an old TV ad that features doctors smoking Camel cigarettes.
This commercial came my way via LongartsZwolle, a blog by a Dutch pulmonologist. Times change, and the world gets smaller.
This post originally appeared at Medical Lessons, written by Elaine Schattner, ACP Member, a nonpracticing hematologist and oncologist who teaches at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine. She shares her ideas on education, ethics in medicine, health care news and culture. Her views on medicine are informed by her past experiences in caring for patients, as a researcher in cancer immunology and as a patient who's had breast cancer.
