Be wary of any doctor who chooses fame and “the opportunity of a lifetime” over what’s best for the patient.
Sometimes even seemingly harmless things can go awry.
When I worked at Public Citizen (Nader’s group in DC) I wrote a petition to the FDA to ban third generation oral contraceptives. Why? Because the risk of blood clots was twice as much as the risk of blood clots in the more established second generation oral contraceptives. On an individual level, this isn’t much at all. But on a population level, this means a couple more dead women at the end of the year all for the sake of pharmaceutical marketing (they’ve never been shown to prevent pregnancy better than the prior generations).
