"The medical establishment has become a major threat to health." This is the opening statement and basic contention of Ivan Illich's searing social critique. In "Limits to Medicine" Ivan Illich has enlarged on this theme of disabling social services, schools, and transport, which have become, through over-industrialization, harmful to man. In this radical contribution to social thinking Illich decimates the myth of the magic of the medical profession.
