So that's why I still have my tonsils!

Curious. I think it's a bit presumptuous to assume that the effect is caused by the doctors' choices. I suspect it's more a matter of lawyers' families having high standards when deciding on medical intervention, but maybe that's just anecdotal. I would be interested to see if there's a similar difference in procedure rates for an elective treatment (well, usually) like LASIK.
