Interesting piece on the MSN homepage about the portrayal of medicine in film and on TV. The blurb says:
"In a study published last week, doctors complained that comas are not accurately portrayed in films, which can therefore lead to a skewing of public perceptions and affect real life decisions. But what about other illnesses and conditions? Are film and television shows committed to the facts when it comes to ailments and illness? Richard Moore examines why the truth is very rarely allowed to get in the way of a good medical drama."
