    I couldn't agree more!!!!

    The influence of English on medical Spanish is evident in the growing use of Anglicisms... However, its effect is much greater than this alone, affecting the... vocabulary favoring words closer to their English translation... and syntax (abuse of the passive voice, apposition of nouns, elimination of the article at the beginning of a sentence, abuse of the indefinite article, etc.).
