Bob Mould

HŒsker DŒde Bob Mould is best known for the 80's hardcore band that bridged the gap between the proto-punk of the 70's and the alt-rock of the 90's, making possible the more chaotic corner of the mainstream occupied by the likes of the Pixies and Jane's Addiction. His 90's band, Sugar, was a fairly predictable move after the DŒ broke up in 1987 (even if 1994's File Under: Easy Listening was a bit of a misnomer), but recent years have taken him into a wider variety of environments, including electronic duo project Blowoff (who turned up at R2 a while back), the theme song to the Daily Show ("Dog On Fire," interpreted by They Might Be Giants), collaborations with Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty, and solo acoustic performances.

I respectfully have to disagree with Dr. Hong's #1 risk factor for osteoarthritis=age. I think the more appropriate terminology for describing the cause of osteoarthritis is time. More accurately, dysfunction over a period of time. Quite different than age alone! If I can use some quirky humor as well, I'm reminded of the time a patient had arthritis present at the lowest vertebra is his back. He commented "it's just old age, doc", to which I replied "oh ya, how much older is this vertebra than the one two levels higher that looks just fine!" I've seen 30 year olds with severe osteoarthritic changes and I've seen 80 year olds with no signs of OA. Dr. Hong's thinking is typical of the traditional medical approach of removing responsibility from the patient. Blame it on genetics, age, etc. The current status of our nation's health is very poor and I believe it's this type of limited thinking that put us there. While there is no doubt things like genetics play a role in our health, current medical research in the field of epigenetics shows that our environment/lifestyle is much more of a factor in how genes are actually expressed. This model allows the individual to accept responsibility for their health. Our approach in my office is to educate patients on how to get and stay healthy and support them in their journey. Until we truly address the real causes of most disease and ill health, which is unhealthy lifestyle habits and stress, we will continually wonder how we're going to get everyone insured and pay for this terribly expensive system of health care that consistently ranks near the bottom when compared with other industrialized nations. Approximately 50% of bankruptcy in the US is due to medical expenses. I believe it was Einstein who said "You can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking which created it." More drugs aren't the answer. It's time we all question our current thinking on what health really is and what it takes to properly develop and maintain it.
