My response was based on the movie clip.  To your point about medicine, 
what I wrote still applies.

The facts never changed, but what the doctors chose to believe and why 
was/is a different matter.
"First, do no harm" is clear.  They ignored it and the patients did not 
understand the risk, which can lead to tragic outcomes.

The day that I rely solely on a doctor / poorly informed medical 
personnel to tell me what to do is the day that I place myself in the 
path of harm.
