Man is not guilt-ridden

Many people are beginning to recognize the link between thought and experience, including health. But sometimes they find the implications disturbing. Does this correlation mean that sick people are necessarily more wicked than anyone else?

In Medical World News Dr. Howard M. Spiro, professor of medicine at Yale University, wrote: "The emphasis today on personal responsibility for one's own health is admirable as long as it doesn't turn into guilt for getting sick. . . . Increasingly, disease is seen as punishment for bad behavior . . . ." Medical World News, January 7, 1980, quoted in Detroit Free Press, March 16, 1980.
