Physician Who Gave Unneeded Chemo Gets 45 Years in Prison.
Farid Fata, MD, the oncologist who got rich administering excessive or unnecessary chemotherapy to hundreds of patients, including some who did not have cancer, was sentenced to 45 years in prison today by a federal judge in Detroit, Michigan.
The sentence came after the 50-year-old Dr Fata heard the judgement of patients and family members who testified earlier this week to the excruciating physical and psychological harm he caused.
One of them was Laura Stedtefelt, who said the oncologist had overtreated her late father for lung cancer to the point of killing him, according to an account in the Detroit Free Press.
“I hate you,” said Stedtefelt, addressing Dr Fata. “You are a monster. You are evil. You poisoned him. You tortured and murdered my dad.”
Former patient Maggie Dorsey testified that Dr Fata deliberately misdiagnosed her with a type of blood cancer called multiple myeloma and treated her with the chemotherapy agent bortezomib. She tearfully described living with the adverse effects, which include severe osteoporosis and neuropathy.

Mal de mer: Nausea: This dictionary word of the day means sea sickness. Lets explore what it is!
Motion sickness is a syndrome that occurs in response to real or perceived motion, which can include gastrointestinal, central nervous system, and autonomic symptoms.
Motion or sea or travel sickness is considered a physiological form of dizziness, since it is not indicative of a disease process. This can be induced in nearly all normal human subjects. The affects and conditions may vary in severity, as it may be produced with minimal provocation in some individuals but can be very difficult to elicit in others.
What is Nausea: The symptoms of motion sickness were first described by Hippocrates. They frequently occur during boat travel, and the principal symptom (nausea) is derived from the Greek word for ship (naus).

COPD- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
COPD is a lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. In people with COPD, the airways (the branching tubes that carry air within the lungs) become narrow and damaged. This makes people feel out of breath and tired.
COPD can be a serious illness. It cannot be cured and it usually gets worse over time. But there are treatments that can help.
You might have heard COPD referred to as “chronic bronchitis” or “emphysema.” These are types of COPD.
Medical Law don’t confuse it with “jurisprudence” which means branch of medicine
Medical law is the branch of law which concerns the prerogatives and responsibilities of medical professionals and the rights of the patient. It should not be confused with medical jurisprudence, which is a branch of medicine, rather than a branch of law.
Medical jurisprudence: The branch of the law that deals with the application of law to medicine or, conversely, the application of medical science to legal problems. Medical jurisprudence may be involved in cases concerning genetic relationships (eg, paternity testing) or injury or death resulting from violence. An autopsy may be done to help determine the agent of death (eg, a gun shot, poison) and how long the person has been dead.. Forensic medicine is also important in cases involving rape. Modern techniques use such specimens as semen, blood, and hair to identify the body of a victim and to compare the DNA of the criminal to that of the defendant through DNA fingerprinting.Medical law is the branch of law which concerns the prerogatives and responsibilities of medical professionals and the rights of the patient.
