finally...you're also in pito's camp.....it's for the symbolism- life and purity....before the turn of the century- the medical people and the nuns (working in the hospitals)used to wear black- for death...and esp students/personnel dissecting cadavers wore black....in keeping with the times and modern science, doctors then started wearing white or beige....and for the practical reason- it's easy to know it's clean if it's white...I don't wear them, so why should I know it? Perhaps it looks more important, sciencey and geeky?
well, perhaps dr H can answer this?
Stupid question maybe, but why are labcoats or medicalcoats white?
I always wondered why.
