At first i though it was a joke, but after reading the article i think i was a little bazaar that the doctor would not apologize and told him that the remedy was still being sorted out. In 1973 the diagnostic and statistical manual for mental heal decided to remove homosexuality as a disease because its not one. I think the doctor got lucky that the guy decided not to take any further actions.

I thought this was a very interesting story I feel like people are going to do anything these days to make themselves better looking in their eyes. I feel as if people are willing too risk it because the real stuff is so expensive. I am not against people getting implants and body modifications but I feel like they need to be doing it in safe way. I recently watched a show on TV that was documenting life of a person that was addicted to getting butt injections and was going to a lady in a motel that was injecting her with industrial silicone. It was an interesting show and made me think a lot about the chances people are willing to take to modify their body.

Bengt, a growing concern in White Collar/Professional Crime is unnecessary medical procedures. To what extent is it ok for doctors, who we trust with our lives, to "up-sell" cosmetic treatments or under-sell the risks of all types of procedures?
