  • Lewis Thomas, in his semi-autobiographical book The Youngest Science: Notes of a Medicine-Watcher, reminisced about his father, an internist in the early twentieth century who would sit by his patient, holding his hand while nature affected the cure. There was little else he could offer. Now, after almost 100 years, we have crossed vast frontiers in medicine, from hormones to the immune system to unlocking the promise of genomics. We have relegated diseases such as erythroblastosis to the history books and transformed AIDS from a death sentence to a chronic illness.

  • The production of melanin (tanning) accounts for part of the protection against UV radiation, but there is mounting scientific evidence that faculta- tive tan is triggered by UV-induced DNA damage in the skin (Pedeux et al., 1998; Gilchrest & Eller 1999 for a review). Facultative tanning is now considered a better indicator of inducible DNA repair capacity than of efficient photoprotective skin reaction. Inducible DNA repair capacity rather than pigmentation itself could result in the lower incidence of skin cancer observed in darker-skinned individuals (Young et al.

  • An emphasis on scenic beauty may lead one to devaluate that which is not beautiful—the rotted log, or the humus, or trees that have burned, blighted, or contorted, or Burnet's 'wild, vast, undigested heaps of Stones and Earth'.
