My father the idiot

Got into an argument with my father who insists doctors aren't perfect. He's correct to a certain point. While I do understand there's a moral and pseudoscientific portion of the health community. The layman is not a highly educated person and I personally entrust an average joe to assume he or she would know better than a physician. Yes, the health industry really is an industry and there's much to profit. But realistically someone who studied to be doctor is going be a lot mpre well-informed. The argument stemmed from a straw man argument created from my father who said his co-worker was perfectly 'healthy' but had acquired a stroke in recent. My father kept implying the doctors are wrong because his cholesterol and blood pressure were fine. But I had explained to him that his co-worker is a chronic smoker. He was at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease. So a stroke was a potential risk due to his smoking habits. My father insisted 'but he was fine and healthy' and I repeatedly told him it wouldn't matter what a physical check up would say since other factors and lifestyle habits can affect a person's health. My father then said 'well, the doctor lied to him..that's why'. I can no longer with this amount. My father still says he can't explain why his co-worker got a stroke if the said he was 'fine'. 🙈🙈😂😂 my father is a idot, a clear dumbass. A f****** moron. F*** I hate his stupidity. I'm glad I didn't inherit much on his side of the family. I swear he's going to send me to the hospital before he does.

  • Your dad is a fool....avoid him.

  • Doctors are not Gods.
    Yes, someone's poor lifestyle choices can bring health issues.
    Let me give you an example of my health issue:
    I twisted my knee and could not walk for three months.
    I healed my knee with rest, good diet and herbal remedies.
    Upon physical examination, I was told by a doctor that, I had a tear in the meniscus and had sprained or torn the ACL ligament.
    The doctor had informed me that if I did nothing I would end up in a wheel chair for a year.
    It has been six months and my knees is still in the process of healing.
    I can walk and I am not in a wheel chair.
    My health issues are due to poor lifestyle choices (combined by drug induced health problems). You can not entirely blame people if they have drug induced problems such as: lupus, auto immune disorders, metabolic disorders etc and other health issues on poor lifestyle choices, alone.
    Sometimes existing health issues can be exacerbated or made worse my meds.
    The tools doctors use can sometimes be worse than the health issue, itself.
    If you don't agree with your dad, don't resort to name calling.
    Just accept we all have different opinions and views.
    Yes, the tools and procedures that some doctors use , should be scrutinised and not just taken as Gospel.
