Ouality vs Quanity of Life
Aug 17, 2002

In regard to your August 1 answer on Buffalo hump, please do not forget that quantity of life can sometimes be meaningless without quality to go along with it.

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Thank you for your comment, it is a point well taken.

While there are some who wish for the longest life possible, I think most hope for a good quality of life more than an extension without a reasonable quality of life. What is reasonable varies widely from person to person. This makes it difficult to go beyond basic recommendations because the decision, the risk vs. benefit, and the quantity vs. quality of life is so different depending on who you talk with.
