In nutrition, technology makes the possible practical

Technology allows a path of constant communication between practitioner and patient.

It may not seem like it when you’re checking your stock prices on your iPhone halfway across the Nevada desert, but technology is almost always just one step, some steps larger than others, from what came from before. Hieroglyphics were a step up from cave paintings. Papyrus was a step up from stone. Printing was a step up from the work of the scribe. Your iPhone stock check is some definable number of steps up from smoke signals.
