Century : '"It is becoming plainer and plainer to some of us that of all the learned professions the medical profes- sion has of late years risen higher than any other in the public estimation, and that the status of the medi- cal man is tending to become recognized as entitled to precedence above that of any other class in the viagra 100mg rating community. generic viagra packaging For myself, 1 incline to believe that this is in<-\ itable." This is the kind of sentiment which we ourselves have expressed, and in which we believe. The doc- tor of to-day, generic viagra packaging who has passed through the educational work which makes him a thoroughly competent phy- sician, has gained thereby a knowledge which cannot fail to make him a man of value in any community and of importance in all communities which are civi- lized generic viagra packaging and intelligent. At the present clay the medical man can rarely succeed unless he has merit. In olden times it was largely a question of bearing and a wise look, peculiarities of dress, fashion, and man- ner, which took the people. Xow it is expected that he show knowledge and skill, or else acknowledge that the problem is too great for him. " The average doctor stands before his fellows as a plain embodi- ment of the mastership of truth and knowledge on the one hand, and perfect simplicity of character and con- duct, on the other."' The Hospital, from which we quote this last, adds, however, a fear lest the bright prospects of the future be marred by the now^ increas- ing taint of commercialism. It says that doctors are becoming too fond of money, and are too viagra 100mg rating much in- clined to advertise and place their work upon a basis of trade. This is the kind of fear which has been ex- prosed for many years, and which we have never seriously shared. There is something in the charac- ter of the work done by the physician which will al- ways make his calling a distinct one. tinged perhaps with commercial methods, but not genuinely identi- fied with such pursuits. As long as the physician is competent and honest, we do not fear that his desire for money will lower his professional standing. The greatest artists in music, in painting, in architecture have never denied themselves the sweet solace of 1 fees for their work. The most successful financiers or statesmen have not been thought the less great be- cause they won large sums of money, or because pecu- niary gain was viagra 100mg rating one of the main objects of viagra 100mg rating their life. SCIENTIFIC COOKERY. We are inclined to think the medical profession owes something to the city of Philadelphia, on account of its producing a particularly enlightened and progres- sive student of the noble art of cookery in the person of Mrs. Rorer. This lady has published cook-books which, we are informed, are trustworthy, and has con- tributed to periodicals, teaching those housewives and cooks who are humble enough to be willing to learn the sane and rational methods of cooking and present- ing food. Mrs. Rorer also has time to lecture and instruct in the different cities of this country, and, while we are not quite sure that all the lady says will generic viagra packaging be accepted by sanitarists and professional hygienists, yet she undoubtedly throws off some sparks of wis- dom which ought to illumine wide areas in this dys- peptic country. Potatoes, as we understand Mrs. Rorer, are little better than poison if eaten in any excess. One potato a day seems to be the Rorer limit. Medical experience, in a measure, confirms the fact that the potato is not the best type of vegeta- ble for brain workers at least, for the neurotic type of individual though it does well enough for those who work outdoors all generic viagra packaging day. To eat pickles is to show a lack of education, according to the Rorer gospel. To eat them in this country rather shows that the person is in a stage of adolescence, or is suffering from certain hysterical tendencies. Pickles and candy seem to be the two things to which the nervous activity of maturing young people naturally tend. To eat them shows rather a lack of balance than of training. Cooked apples are more easily digested, but not so good for the health, says the lady. The sugar in fruit is digestible, but the sugar of commerce is an abomination. Oatmeal is a valuable food if cooked for three hours and well masticated, and all starchy foods viagra 100mg rating must be cooked for hours. These are truths which medical experience abundantly corrobo- rates. Dr. McCall Anderson, for generic viagra packaging example, states that oatmeal, which causes eruptions viagra 100mg rating and pruritus in some people, can be eaten without any unpleasant results if it is cooked for three or four hours. Cabbage and onions meet approval, provided they are cooked so that they have no odor. generic viagra packaging When there is odor they are ruined for food. And the art of cooking them with- out odor consists in keeping them in water that is just below the boiling-point. Mrs. Rorer seems to think that Welsh rarebits generic viagra packaging are better and more diges- tible than bread and butter, and generic viagra packaging she herself generic viagra packaging eats one every day for lunch. The art of medicine is closely allied to that of 9 MEDICAL RECORD. | January 18, 1896 dietetics and cooking, and we make no apologies for calling the attention of our readers to some of the striking dietetic ideas of Mrs. Rorer.
