Relevant answer
Answer
The deteriorating ethics of medical professionals clearly indicate that the medical education is not well embedded in humanities that transcends technical boundaries of professional competence.

Hi guys!
I am advancing in the empirical design of my next project about regimes of knowledge production on Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) and I would like to know if you have any suggestions of literature about this topic in STS, Medical Sociology of related fields.
I am interested in the perspective of the coproduction of biomedical evidence which emerges in the circuit of pathologization/diagnostic/medicalization/evaluation/new research agenda, specially addressed to the diffusion of immunotherapies and artificial antibodies in Oncology and Rheumatology.
Keep safe and cheers!

Now I can access the link via the cached version (that is using Google as a search engine) - to anyone having problem accessing the link above re Yoshiro Nakamatsu interview. If this is the right interview (2012?), there is only one sentence covering the topic: "He also photographs every dish he eats to recall the stimulating ones. " I am not saying it is not worth it, I hope I got the right page. I also think we should reflect more on food and I think any kind of diary could be helpful. Thanks for sharing the link to the interview!
