Apple EKG: with an inundation of new data, doctors are worried about misinformation, particularly false positives.

"An electrocardiogram test, or EKG, measures the electrical signals your heart uses to regulate your heartbeat. The point is to detect signs of atrial fibrillation; an irregular heartbeat."

----------------------------

[ Non-Hierarchal Authority ]

The flip side is that numerous studies have found that patients are becoming more informed than ever, whether it's through symptom searching on Google or accessing an ECG reading through their Apple Watch. And that's changing the culture of medicine. When patients are armed with their own health data, the relationship with their doctor becomes less paternalistic. They're no longer rendered childlike to an authority figure, who provides instructions during an annual visit on the steps they should take to manage their health. Instead, consumers are turning to discussion forums like PatientsLikeMe, where engaged patients with serious medical conditions discuss their treatments, doctors and other aspects of their care.

[ Real-Time Lifestyles ]

Some doctors are embracing that trend, as it allows medical experts to be more proactive with patients, helping to keep them healthy rather than just treating them when they get sick.

"The Apple Watch could give doctors a new way to communicate with their patients," said Dr. Oliver Aalami, a vascular surgeon and clinical associate professor at Stanford University. Aalami said patients are more likely to notice if they have a skipped heartbeat or extra heartbeats, which could be problematic but might also be due to stress or too much caffeine. Doctors can help determine if the irregularity is due to possible signs of heart disease, requiring medical intervention, or something like anxiety, which can often be managed through alterations in lifestyle.

-----------------------------

[ Data Democratization ]

Similarly, Dr. Leslie Saxon, a cardiologist and professor at the University of Southern California, has publicly praised Apple for helping people take control of their health. The early days of Apple's ECG are forcing a balancing act between democratizing health data and turning too many patients into untrained MDs. Apple has stressed that its watch is not a diagnostic tool, and that patients should seek health advice from their doctor. One fear among many physicians is that patients with data from sophisticated wearable devices will start to demand unnecessary tests and procedures, which can bring health risks and added costs to an already overburdened health-care system.

[ Crisis of Democracy ]

They also take doctors away from patients who really need their help. Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist, recently pointed out that there are even cases when an Apple Watch will accurately detect atrial fibrillation on someone who doesn't have any troubling symptoms. Such patients may rush to get screened even though there's no evidence to suggest that they should, Topol said.

[ Healthcare Anxieties ]

Even more troubling are the false negatives, or instances of atrial fibrillation that aren't picked up by the Apple Watch. With millions of people potentially using the ECG, very small errors can mean thousands of patients getting inaccurate information, prompting them to experience too much anxiety, or not enough.

[ A.I. Re-Centralization ]

Dr. David Albert, founder and chief medical officer of heart health technology company AliveCor, expects that artificial intelligence will eventually filter what ends up in the hands of doctors. AliveCor sells its own ECG device for consumers and is among the emerging companies focused on ensuring that patients get direct access to important health information, but without overburdening their doctors. The challenge is to avoid submitting an "avalanche of inconsequential data," Albert said.

Overall cancer incidence, as indicated above, has been stable. There is a small decrease in men, due to the prostate issue, but if we take this out, cancer incidence has been pretty flat. Again – this breaks the “cancer epidemic” narrative that is dredged up to stoke false fears about vaccines, cell phones, GMOs, or whatever boogeyman you want to attack.

In a similar way, there will never be a “cure for cancer”. Cancer is many diseases, and it is complex. But each advance moves the needle a little bit, and over the last 25 years we have decreased cancer deaths by 27% – again, about 1% per year on average. The tortoise definitely wins this race.

Meanwhile, alternative cancer treatments have made no progress. They have nothing to show for all their conspiracy theories and overhyped claims – except an increase in the risk of death. People who use alternative cancer treatments, either in addition to or instead of mainstream treatments, die more quickly from their cancer. This effect will only get greater as survival with mainstream treatments steadily improves.

What we see with the lid off and the fog of fantasies at last beginning to dissipate is the truth that #Brexit is much less about #Britain’s relationship with the EU than it is about #Britain’s relationship with itself. It is the projection outwards of an inner turmoil. An archaic political system had carried on even while its foundations in a collective sense of belonging were crumbling. Brexit in one way alone has done a real service: it has forced the old system to play out its death throes in public. The spectacle is ugly, but at least it shows that a fissiparous 4-nation state cannot be governed without radical social and constitutional change.

European leaders have continually expressed exasperation that the British have really been negotiating not with them, but with each other. But perhaps it is time to recognise that there is a useful truth in this: Brexit is really just the vehicle that has delivered a fraught state to a place where it can no longer pretend to be a settled and functioning democracy. Brexit’s work is done - everyone can now see that the Westminster dodo is dead. It is time to move on from the pretence that the problem with British democracy is the EU and to recognise that it is with itself.
