Medicine affects everyone's life on a daily basis. Medicine lengthens
our lives and increases our health. Israel has played a big role in
medicine today. Students from around the world come to Israel to
study medicine at Technion University and Weizmann Institute of
Technology. Israel has helped its surrounding enemy countries
prolong their citizen's lives with programs such as "The Good Fence" (the allowing of Lebanese civilians to cross the border into Israel for medical attention during the "Lebanon War").
Not only have these technologies helped Israel but they have assisted other
countries worldwide. One example of this was when Israel shared
medical knowledge and resources with the Lebanese civilians during
their occupation of Lebanon. Many of the medical discoveries
which Israel has developed have contributed to today's increased standard of living.
