The Hippocratic Oath that all doctors take states that anyone in the medical profession is required to promise that the directive to "first do no harm" is the primary directive or pledge.
This means that anyone professing to have knowledge of any of the fields of medicine (neurology, cardiology, urology, psychiatry, etc.) must take steps to ensure the people that their claims to medical understanding is based on the pledge that they seek to advertise "preventive care" or care of maladies that is based on assurances of avoiding pain.
While practices such as Euthanasia have complicated the iconic Hippocratic Oath with wishes of assisted suicide and empathetic pain killer over-prescription, medical ministers still believe that "preventive care" remains the standard of medical care.
This suggests that comfort-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Soul Food" (1997) and "Body of Lies" (2008) remain meaningful social symbols of cautionary intentions.
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

Its interesting that the symbol of modern medicine ..is the snake twined around the rod.
Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness..everyone who focused on that rod lifted up was saved
so scripture states today That Jesus has been lifted up , just like Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness.
By his stripes we are healed.

The thing is, the people that put up the modern medicine symbol do not have your best interest at heart.
