Our Blog


The reason for the existence of this blog is the education of our community, with publications that are critical, not complacent, and that in theory encourage the discussion of certain topics related to health care for the growth of all. Let's start this post with one fact and one speculation.Fact: In


With the last entry I finished spinning an idea that I have been maturing for a while, which will be the reason for today's entry. A radical stance, being I pro-vaxer and pro-health system (the opposite being anti-vaxers and those who distrust the health system), would be that the health system and its

After a long silence on our blog, I decided to reactivate it with a very personal entry for me. Since we started operations in 2008, I always had mrs.

First principlesThere are many things in Asia that seem fascinating, mysterious and incomprehensible. Such is the case of the concepts of Karoshi and Inemuri, which are idealized by Japanese society and which have been associated with great work devotion. These concepts, although you don't know the words,


Every year, our country explodes in an advertising fever that covers almost all public institutions and private organizations. The fight against cancer. In principle noble and well intentioned, but misguided outside the advertising context. All participants do so to remain valid to the public opinion.
