What a wonderful cutting edge Doctor that is saving patients money and lives. He actually got one drug taken off the market (cost him his job in Cleveland) because the drug was dangerous ..Eric Topol my kinda guy ! He talks about 100 billion in drug waste and another few billion in screening that can be done away with in many cases with the present and future smart phone apps.. Some of the apps are demonstrated in the video.

If this is what they call modern technology then this cardiologist is certainly on the 'cutting edge.' Looks like the future of diagnostic medicine and treatment is going to be quite revolutionary.

Amazing as to what is revealed in medicine while using nothing more than a few apps and a smart phone.. IMO well worth the time to view.. He pretty much hit all my "like" buttons that is for sure. and type in his name

Eric J. Topol, M.D., is an American cardiologist, geneticist, and researcher. Much of Topol's career was spent at the Cleveland Clinic, where he served as chairman of cardiovascular medicine and founded the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. Topol was one of the first researchers to question the cardiovascular safety of rofecoxib (Vioxx),[1] culminating in the drug's ultimate withdrawal from the market. Topol's advocacy on the subject led to what the New York Times described as an "unusually public dispute" with the Cleveland Clinic's leadership over ties between the academic institution and the pharmaceutical industry, ultimately leading to Topol's departure from the Clinic after his academic position was abolished.[2][3]

Topol currently serves as Director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in La Jolla, California.[4] He also serves as the Chief Academic Officer for Scripps Health, a professor of Translational Genomics at The Scripps Research Institute, and The Gary and Mary West Chair of Innovative Medicine.[5] In addition, Topol is a co-founder of and serves on the Board of the West Wireless Health Institute as Vice-Chairman.[6] He is editor-in-chief of Medscape[7] and

S&F. There are a lot of good doctors, but many won't challenge the system because it would jeopardize their future. It's lucky this doctor still has his license.

A nano sensor smaller than a grain of sand...hmmm.
Wouldn't be very hard to put one in every person on the planet. They could be put in every vial of injectable medicine, and not even the doctors would know what they're inadvertently doing to people!
I've read where the technology we 'discover' has already been perfected and used by the military for many years before it becomes available for public use.
Mind - boggling times we live in!
