Additional Information: This quote by Reuters health editor Ivan Oransky is Oransky's way of making fun of what he calls the "over-medicalization" of society; there is a "pre" version of every single health condition that renders every healthy person a potential medical patient, says Oransky. By this same logic, says Oransky, every person alive has "pre-death." The quote is from Oransky's 2012 TED Talk on the phenomenon of pre-conditions.
