Sounds like a classic case of natural selection. I could spend hours doing research and talking about this, but Razor Leaf has pretty much said everything I could probably come up with and more (way to make me feel intellectually inadequate; yes, I AM sensitive about my "IQ size.").

As for the immune systems comment Cassino mentioned, I somewhat agree with you, many people need to give their immune systems more of a chance to develop naturally, but some people just can't come up to snuff, so they need certain medicines to survive. You could argue that letting people with vulnerabilities and immuno-deficiencies survive in a population and reach reproduction age to pass on in-advantageous immunity traits might be a bad thing, but then that's just devolving into a eugenics discussion and the ethics behind eugenics are...questionable at best.
