Evidence in Favor of "Death Panels" Continues to Build

A NY Times article reports that a randomized clinical study of 151 patients with fast growing lung cancer found that palliative care led patients to opt for less aggressive treatment options, found that they reported fewer problems, and lived about 3 months longer.

A lot of political opinion makers should pat themselves on the back for making many patients more miserable and costing society a lot more in aggressive treatments by pushing the Death Panel meme and putting another nail in the coffin of America adopting evidence based medicine.  Way to go guys.
