Medical backlash


The introduction of measures to improve health and the environment sometimes has unexpected consequences. For example, the successful application of biomedical achievements to public health services has generated a medical backlash in the form of unanticipated hazards to health from the increased expectation of life. To anticipate or mitigate such backlash requires the active collaboration of doctors, economists, sociologists.
