Hi ElMaestro,

❝ WHO is defining substance abuse and alcoholism as disease in its own right. Many if not most countries assign a psychiatric diagnosis to people with substance abuse.

Recreational use abuse.
In a few countries recreational use of cannabis is legal (even in in some states of Trump-[image]).

❝ If you are positive for the drug screen/alcohol test you are potentially not healthy (as in a healthy adult volunteer, which coincidentially fits the description of the typical BE subject quite well).

See the WHO’s definition:

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

(my emphasis)
How healthy are students in the “1st world” living in the precariat and many people in developing countries?

a scientist is a layman.

is a certain form of semiparasitic living.    Erwin Chargaff
