As far as the medical things go, you should go dig up the old Houston vs Atlanta threads, because a lot of that was debunked. Biotech and nanotechnology are big in Houston (nanotech is growing like weeds in Houston). Atlanta is big on research with the CDC, but the TMC has more specific areas. Go look at hospital rankings for specific cares. Houston tops Atlanta in all of them (including the Children's Hospital): Top American Hospitals Rankings - US News Best Hospitals

That is why I said Houston and Atlanta are not close in the medical industry...and this isn't to discredit Atlanta either, because it has a strong medical industry. The stronger our medical industries are, the healthier we become.

Their's only a few areas Houston dominates Atlanta like Urology, Cancer and etc other than those their actually on pare with each others in most fields. I cut off after 30. Did actually look at your own source? Than The Significance of CDC canít be ranked, diffrent reasonability. As well as the American Cancer Society Center so there not included in the list. Keep that in mind.

The gap between Houston and Dallas in energy is significantly larger than the Gap between Houston and Atlanta in medical, I put that way. Houston beats Atlanta in medical yes by a wide shot NOOO. Don't over milk the cow.

How can you say Atlanta just has a "slightly" smaller energy industry than Dallas and Houston (what afonega1 said)? Would you like to point out and tell me what I said was so wrong? I've been respectful through all of this, but receive backlash because I'm from Texas, and am suppose to not speak about Atlanta. LOL!
When I was talking about energy I was talking in terms of that it has a decent sized sector for a city its size.I admit the word slightly was not the best word but more that it is substantial especially compared with most other major cities to actually have such an energy sector.I admit that was not the best choice of wording.

Maybe I should have made it more clear that it was afonega1, but I did list both of you.

Of course I looked at my source. The list you posted prove my point. Also, are you familiar with what the American Cancer Society does?

So every category goes in Houston's favor, except for two. This is one reason why I said the medical industry in Houston is much larger than the one in Atlanta.

Maybe not a wide shot, but Houston leads Atlanta in the medical industry by a significant margin. It becomes more apparent with the list you provided. The CDC is a great asset to Atlanta, but as much research is being done in Houston. It's just that the CDC is a government agency (so that's why they call Atlanta and not Houston). Out of 49 institutions in the TMC, only 13 are hospitals. They rest are schools and research institutions. Not to mention there have been more "medical firsts" in Houston than in Atlanta (just an example, at one institution). I don't think Atlanta can compare to those numbers, but that's not discrediting Atlanta's medical industry. It just isn't as large as Houston's. Just like Houston can't compare with Atlanta in the retail and telecommunications industries.

Yes I know ACS is a voluntary health organization.

The CDC has a responsibility in medical that no intuition in Houston has. Besides the research of itís own. The CDC also has the reasonability of coordinating the general health, prevention and control above just treating or even research, And your right itís federal, the CDC under the Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC it self give out grants to support health institutions. And making sure the "medical firsts" by institutions A get to institutions B. That why I said the significance of the CDC canít measure or ranked. As someone said earlier itís a different animal.

No, I have already stated Houston beats Atlanta in medical the affirmative was for Atlanta to not be far behind, in most fields Atlanta wasn't too far behind which actually provide my point. You do know you contradict yourself. but whatever you want to call it Maybe not a wide shot, by a significant margin

Dude, who really cares? Your spelling errors and slapdash writing style make every single one of your posts impossible to comprehend to anyone but yourself. Scarface's posts are quite enjoyable and his easy-to-read facts and give-and-take writing style have me convinced that Dallas and Houston are leading Atlanta in many ways.

So you can make this determination from the perceived quality of posts on C-D? Remind me to never trust your judgment.

Yeah it's that bad, but some how people still comprehend

I make mistakes but I study logic so I would like to point out, how you receive your conclusion is fallacious to the extreme. Who really cares about my facts I made grammar errors, when Scarface's posts are quite enjoyable.

I fail to see how giving out grants to other institutions is the same thing as those institutions doing the research, treating patients, etc. The CDC is VERY valuable, but when you stack up the CDC and other medical institutions in Atlanta and then compare them to what's in Houston, Houston comes out on top. And the CDC doesn't give out grants to everybody, either. Houston has many more employees in the medical industry, more institutions associated with the medical industry, a MUCH higher numbers of domestic/international patients than Atlanta, more students studying in the medical industry, etc.

ďI fail to see how giving out grants to other institutions is the same thing as those institutions doing the research, treating patients, etcĒ Itís Not, itís over seeing the one doing the research that needs to be funded, And CDC does give out grants for medical intuition, this is beside the research they do there selves. And also the CDC has the reasonability of coordinating the general health. Regional medical intuition donĎt do this they just treat in comming patients.

You just tried posting hospital ranking and ended up proving my point, Again I said Houston has the edge, the affirmative is Atlanta is not far behind. This at Ad nauseam now.
