Good Versus Real Solutions to Problems
It is nifty what can be done in medical electronics, a progressive field in which I have worked in the past. However, Hawking's health problem causes me to reflect on what we as engineers do: solve human physical problems.

Sometimes a  good solution to a problem detracts from the real solution. There is a strong correlation over the last few decades between the widespread dissemination of toxins in the developed world and the rise of chronic neural diseases and cancers. Two of these toxins are aspartame, the artificial sweetener, and glyphosate, a widely-used agricultural herbicide. Stephanie Seneff at MIT has discovered the biochemical links by which glyphosate causes health problems (Entropy 2013, 15, 1416-1463; doi:10.3390/e15041416), and the FDA found in their original studies of aspartame (that is, before the former CEO of the company that developed aspartame became the head of the FDA - an archetypal case of the fox guarding the henhouse), that it was a neurtoxin and banned it. So although medical devices such as this are commendable developments, we should not lose sight of the deeper, sometimes less obvious, causes for some of the problems for which we develop solutions.
