If the goal is to construct the ultimate health protection and disease control model—to “beat” disease!—then we must address what has been hidden.

We treat diseases. Psychologist George Albee once said, “No disease has ever been treated out of existence.” Consequently, the world shows nonstop technological talk about advancements, however diseases of the world are spreading. A World Health Organization study shows the average fatality rate for Ebola virus is 50% but can rise to 90%.

Another recent study estimated that up to 85 percent of physicians’ decisions regarding a patient’s diagnosis and treatment are based on laboratory test results.

“An error in data has dire consequences,” Hollywood-Tuck said. Having worked for 10 years as a medical technologist, Elizabeth Hollywood-Tuck feels those interested in health protection and disease control are missing the mark and the data when it comes to health protection and disease control. Her book “Two Versions of Symmetry: Figure 1 and Figure 2” details a new, innovative approach to error-detection, health protection and disease control.

“If the goal is to construct the ultimate health protection and disease control model—to “beat” disease!—then we must address what has been hidden,” Hollywood-Tuck said. “If we don’t, problems will continue to be attributed to popular determinants like lifestyle factors, genetic factors, environmental factors and human agency but not further attributed to the inexact symmetry-based design feature.”

“Every thing, event and phenomena is unfavorably influenced by our incomplete understanding of the symmetry concept, and Two Versions of Symmetry, Figure 1 and Figure 2 addresses this,” Hollywood-Tuck said.
