    Going after symptoms rather than after causes is the major problem of our healthcare and of our society in general here in the US (though things may be quite different in the UK in that regard...NOT.) Plugging the recently-discovered "epidemic" of "domestic violence" into that same model is not very useful.

    IMHO.
