What is left-digit bias, and how can it impact your medical care?

We all know that doctors' personal biases can impact the level of care they provide their patients. They may not even be aware of these biases. However -- like all humans -- they have them. They can involve gender, race, weight and a host of other characteristics. For example, one study found that emergency department physicians were less likely to give black patients pain medication than white ones suffering approximately the same amount of pain.

Many foods now declare whether they contain nuts since many people have serious allergic reactions to one or more types of nut.
