To Ted Stearns
Although chiropractice is not well known in Hungary there are a few
practicioners with the usual quota of charlatans offering 'miracle' cures.
I know of a lady who is not only properly trained in chiropractice but
also in orthopaedic medicine who greatly helped a relative of mine.
She is Dr Roza Szo~lo~ssi, her phone numbers in Budapest:
BKV clinic: 118-7133 ext.147
This data about three years old so I can not guarantee its up to date

1. Hungary, Poland, Slovakia etc. already have much higher GNPs than
China., therefore growth ratios expressed in percentages can be very
2. None of the Eastern-European economies are true market-economies.
While Thailand or Malaysia was able to support fully free market
economies, Eastern-Europe is not willing to pay the social price of
Hungary's has a manufacturing economy. With the
overvalued currency (Ft), she is unable to compete with the Far-East.
I'm hoping that the booming service sector will be able to pull the
rest of the economy along.

It doesn't happen very often that my namesake Eva (Durrant) and I see eye to
eye. But I agree with her that most likely the dismal life expectancy figures
in Hungary are largely due to life style (diet, smoking, drinking, etc.).
However, I still maintain that better medical care would help the statistics.
For example, hypothetically speaking, if the doctors last summer managed to
discover that my mother's half first-cousin had cancer and if it was one of
those cancers which have a high rate of curability if caught in time (for
example, colon or prostate cancer), he may have lived for another 10 years.
After all, he came from a family where people lived into their nineties.
As for my namesake's dismal opinion of the cost of American health care, I
agree. Of course, it is terrible and, of course, I moan and moan every time I
have to pay health insurance. But, at the same time, I receive excellent
medical care. I belong to a local "health maintenance organization." I have a
family physician whom I picked from a number of available doctors and who
urges me to have a physical every year. I dutifully follow his advice. Every
year they do all sorts of tests, some of which I think is quite unnecessary,
but I am pleased that I get yearly chest x-rays, mammograms, and all those
things doctors are concerned about. As opposed to this, in Hungary
"preventive medicine" is practically an unknown concept. Interestingly
enough, although Hungary has more doctors per 10,000 inhabitants than the
United States, doctors in Hungary have difficulty taking care of their
patients. Waiting periods for hospitalization are too long, sitting endlessly
in a waiting room is common place. My doctor and to-be-doctor relatives
admitted that if they introduced yearly physicals, the whole system, which is
already terribly overburdened, would simply fall apart. Also, my doctor
relatives were most surprised how knowledgeable I was for a lay person in
medical matters. I assure you that my source of this great knowledge (?) is
the media which in the United States covers medical developments in some
detail. In Hungary there seems to me very little discussion of medical
matters. I also see very little governmental effort to change people's
dietary habits. There is no sign of any anti-smoking campaign, similar to
that in the United States. (By the way, I am sure that Hungary is not alone
in this respect. There seems to be very little effort made in this respect in
Europe as a whole.) Whereas in the United States for the last twenty or so
years there have been a conscious effort at not showing people smoking on TV
or picture them in newspapers with cigarettes in their mouths, it is common
place to see Hungarian journalists and politicians being depicted while
smoking. From the American example we know that a concerted effort against
smoking works. Today only about 23 percent of the American population smokes,
as opposed to God-knows-what in Hungary.
Last but not least (and Eva Durant will be terribly surprised) I am just as
horrified at the ridiculously high salaries American doctors make as I am
upset about how little Hungarian doctors make. Unfortunately, I am not sure
what the answer is to the high cost of American medicine. Just as I am not
sure why the introduction of national health plans usually result in inferior
medical care, long waits, and, at least in the case of Hungary, in illicit
