Sutton's Mythbusting Protest. Wikipedia Myth Number 22. The One Medicine Myth

Here on Best Thinking, everyday throughout November, I am publishing a newly busted myth, or newly discovered fallacy, which is currently being disseminated by the on-line encyclopedia known as Wikipedia.
I am highlighting Wikipedia’s unreliability and dreadful quality of information in protest against its deliberate policy of facilitating and refusing to halt engaging in stealth plagiarism of information from the unique work of expert authors.
At the time of writing, Wikipedia’s senior editors refuse to cite Best Thinking as a reliable source, yet Wikipedia regularly plagiarizes the original content on this site to pass-off my unique myth busting discoveries as though they are discoveries made by its own replicators who refer to themselves collectively as ‘Wikipedians’. Wikipedia passively sanctions this self-serving fraudulent behavior in order to conceal its unreliability and pervasive myth-mongering. (Click here: for the full story).

Myth creation by originator exclusion on Wikipedia 22 November 2013   :

The phrase "One Medicine" was developed and promoted by Calvin W. Schwabe (1927–2006), a veterinary epidemiologist and parasitologist in his textbook "Veterinary Medicine and Human Health [which was published in 1969]”.

Fact

The exact same term, with the exact same meaning, was published many years earlier in: The Cornell Veterinarian (1923) Volume 13 on page 293.   
"We are coming to realize that, broadly speaking, there is but one medicine and that physicians and veterinarians alike are..."
By failing to reveal the fact of its earliest origination Wikipedia is assisting to keep the originator's work buried in oblivion.
