Blacks, Hispanics Twice As Likely To Insist Doctors Do Everything Possible To Stave Off Death

Blacks, Hispanics Twice As Likely To Insist Doctors Do Everything Possible To Stave Off Death

“Everybody wants everything done for them at the end but how many care enough to take care of their bodies while they can? Asking for miracles and everything to be done after decades of abuse is unreasonable in ANY race.”

“It's not the doctors getting rich. The hospitals may be. Many times doctors involved in cases where families just can't let go would rather family members let the patient go to hospice or be allowed to die peacefully. They can't do what's right because they'll be accused of trying to kill 90 year old grandma who was on her way out anyway. But I agree that Americans as a whole have an unreasonable expectation of death...and life.”

“I know it's not the general doctors getting rich but the high specialized doctors are very well compensated.  Thats why there is a crisis due to lack of general practitioners because everyone entering the medical field knows the big bucks is in specialized medicine.  You do make a good point that families are not blameless either.  In many cases the family insists on treating "90 year old grandma" to keep her alive as long as possible even when she has one foot in the grave.  Which is why I made a will and let my partner and family know I don't want to be kept alive when I'm still going to die anyway.  ”

“All I have to say is get your affairs in order. Get a will. Have some advanced directives. The last thing you want is other people making decisions for you because you were too scared or lazy to make them yourself. There is no way in heck I want to live in a nursing home, sitting in a wheelchair, having someone else wipe my butt, or developing pressure sores because someone couldn't let go. Living like that is no way for me to live. Family members have good intentions but I don't trust any one of them to be able to let go when/if I need it. Everybody thinks they're going to die naturally in their sleep. Just doesn't happen. You die of something, but you don't have to be tortured until the bitter end while trying to find a "cure".”

“I don't understand why people are trying to force Jay Z has to speak out on this black issue. I don't really need his voice, I have a voice of my own. I hate it when black people are lumped together in the "black community" as if we live, breathe, and act in a unit. Perhaps I don't want black entertainers, talking heads, etc to represent my viewpoint because we don't share the same views. I do agree with the approach that Jay Z is taking at this time though.”

“I'm wondering why a different diagnostic test wasn't used first, such as a CT scan. Maybe she had one done, but this transvag ultrasound was the last step to rule out anything bad? Maybe she's one of those people who complain and complain about severe abdominal pain so they can leave with a scrip for Norco. Something's not right about this story. Need more info.”

“Actually, I do not consider myself belligerent, nor a carnivore. I'm a very tame omnivore. Most people who eat meat consider themselves omnivores.

So first you were offended by "belligerent carnivores". And now you're pretending that you were not offended? If you're offended, you're offended and that's fine. But don't say stuff like "I don't know why belligerent carnivores read articles on vegan foods", then back track and say you don't think there is anything wrong with it, but you were annoyed with it in the first place. Otherwise you would not have made that statement.”

“Someone who is muscle building probably doesn't want to eat a higher carbohydrate ratio. That's my problem with non-meat protein. Too many carbs unless you use a low carb supplement. Carbs are important, don't get me wrong, but 100+g in a cup of say black beans is ridiculous. It does give quite a bit of protein as well, but I can't justify those carbs for protein.”
