Health, Fitness & Dieting Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. free download ᒁ Ebook By H Gilbert Welch ᠿ Starred Review Health policy expert Welchs assertions about the benefits of some of modern medicines most popular diagnostic screening tools are unlikely to ingratiate him with many people He claims that overdiagnosis is the biggest problem posed by modern medicine, and backs that assertion up with a barrage of facts, charts, and graphs This is information, he says, that is downplayed or simply ignored by individuals and groups promoting the notion that earlier diagnosiswhether for prostate cancer or diabetestranslates to better health Indeed, Welch says, just the converse is often true In an overwhelming number of circumstances, early diagnosis turns healthy, asymptomatic people into patients who require a variety of medical interventions with no benefit, even exposing them to unnecessary harm Worse, overdiagnosis can render perfectly healthy people uninsurable Further, instead of lowering health care costs, all those scans, screenings, and tests actually raise costs by overtreating people who will never benefit from said treatment His point is that both physicians and patients need to be skeptical and understand all the data pro and con surrounding prescreening for possible illness Welch speaks his truth with a frankness and clarity scant found in todays hysteria over medical prescreening Donna Chavez Overdiagnosed albeit controversialis a provocative, intellectually stimulating work As such, all who are involved in health care, including physicians, allied health professionals, and all current or future patients, will be well served by reading and giving serious thought to the material presented JAMAEveryone should read this book before going to the doctor
