The 1000th Thread!

This is the 1000th presentation to my bioethics blog since starting on Google Blogspot.com in 2004.There has been many topics covered. Though comments by the visitors has always been encouraged and, since as a " discussion blog " , comments leading to discussions I have felt was the definitive function here. Virtually none of the thread topics have gone unread and most have had some commentary, some with mainly particularly strong and emphatic opinions http://bioethicsdiscussion.blogspot.com/2013/01/should-pathologists-be-physicians.html, some with extensive up to 12 years long continued discussion http://bioethicsdiscussion.blogspot.com/2017/10/patient-modesty-volume-82.html, still there have been some with no visitor response http://bioethicsdiscussion.blogspot.com/2005/01/public-good-vs-money-in-pockets-or.html. It is interesting to understand why such differences have occurred.Though most of the topics were bioethics as related to the subject of medical care, an occasional topic was related to plants http://bioethicsdiscussion.blogspot.com/2014/06/can-tree-experience-hurt-if-it-can-do.html and animals  http://bioethicsdiscussion.blogspot.com/2012/04/spending-lot-of-money-on-your-sick-dog.html.Nevertheless, it is the multitude of issues regarding human medical ethics which has dominated this blog. In  my opinion, a great listing and summarization of those issues was and is being presented by Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_medical_e...
