Regine Smith Conline Businesses in Customised Medicine?

Another scenario: Will some hack and opportunist tap into this system (technologically) and create an online feeder business supplying 'customised' muti and medicine for the naive and gullible? Something like: "Send us your DNA information and we'll screen it for you and send you preventative medicine for the arthritis you will be getting in 5 years time".

Panos Lazanas Personalized medicine to shape

Here is a way out scenario:
"Personalized strategies to shape the future of self perception."

Quantum mechanics is over a hundred years old, and here we are pretending to talk about futures of medicine etc.
The very nature of our self perception is upside down. To define our existence as consisting of a body carying a personality around and the state of the body defining "our health" is thinking that belongs in the 1800s.
Our conscious individuality is not a prerequisite for existence (see hypnosis, the work of S Pinker, Anderson etc.)
When will we come to terms with the mystery of sentience and balance our views about health so as to include a realy long term view (in terms of universe cycles)?

Anton Musgrave Access to personal information has real internal impact!

Apps to self monitor hearts, and a host of other potential important bodily functions... Great news for individuals but why don't the medics like it? Obviously it removes the need for all those extra consultations... Will they win the debate? Ultimately the patients will drive the change and the medical profession will struggle to change! As always!

Anton Musgrave Printed Ears!

Once again I am intrigued by advances in so called 3D printing...this time its an ear. I have also read that it has been used to print toys but of the adult kind. Innovation knows no limits it seems! Healthcare will never be the same.

Wolfgang Grulke Don't say we didn't tell you so...

Nine years ago one of our MindBullets revisited this subject after our Life 2.0 keynote first broached the subject at the turn of the millennium. The review confirms the promise plus the reality of what can (and could!) be done today. A healthcare revolution is quietly building!
