“The most valuable asset anyone can ever have in preserving their health in general and dealing with illness when it happens is a reliable source of valid information. Knowledge is the key that opens the door to everything that is important in health, and this web site is a very good key indeed. Thorax.us will finally provide authoritative and independent opinion from leading medical experts who have no axes to grind and are completely free from bias. At long last we have finally created another web site we can rely on whereby we can quickly get to the truth.”
––Dr. Ramesh Kaul

"At first appearance, morality in medicine might seem oddly strange to a society which often treats its doctors as demi-gods. But that, ironically, could very well be the problem as I see it. The ever-growing gap between modern medical technology and traditional practice and the worldwide erosion of ethical standards in our devalued times has necessitated this marriage between morality and medicine. Aside from the strictly ethical standpoint, honesty is–– not only the best policy, but the only possible policy from the standpoint of patient-doctor relations. If we expect and demand virtue and honor in others, the flame of both must burn brightly within ourselves. Honesty begets honesty; trust, trust; and so on through the whole category of desirable ethical  practices that must always be implemented in medicine."

––Dr. Ramesh Kaul
