I would also have to have to disagree with the following statement:

"The astonishing advances in medicine over the past 20 years."

The advances in understanding how biology works has indeed been astonishing
but except for a few very rare diseases the advancement in medicine has been
tiny over the last 20 years. The last true breakthrough in medicine happened
more than 50 years ago with the invention of Penicillin, nothing since has
come close.
