From the July 27, 2009, Newsweek article by Jacob Weisberg, “In his new book The Healing of America, the journalist T.R. Reid employs a clever device for surveying the world’s health systems: he takes an old shoulder injury to various countries. In the United States, a top orthopedist recommends joint replacement surgery, costing tens of thousands of dollars. In France and Germany, doctors steer him instead toward a regime of physical therapy. In Britain, they tell him to go home. In India, he is treated, quite effectively with herbs, massage and meditation.”
