Modern Medicine is Killing You

When it comes to modern medicine, I think we all make assumptions. We go to the doctor and take what he or she says as gospel. If the doctor says we need surgery or a prescription, we don't question it. We assume that this person knows best, that the treatment is necessary, and that it has been scientifically proven to solve whatever ills we have otherwise the doctor would not set out the treatment. The truth is that our assumptions could cost us our life.

Modern Medicine is Killing You looks at the problems of the American health system and asks for thoughtful, beneficial reform. The current system, not just in the US but in many western nations, looks to solve problems as quickly as possible. In this way, you go to the doctor with a symptom and he or she prescribes a course of treatment. No one digs to find the root of the problem, waits to see if it will rectify itself naturally, or tailors a program just for that individual's needs. Quick standardized treatment.

Standardized treatment overtaxes the system, costs money, and provides unnecessary treatment. However, the really scary fact is that these treatments may not be as effective as we think. Testing can consciously or unconsciously biased in a variety of different ways. Moreover, drugs and procedures are often recommended in ways that weren't even tested. Now that is scary. Read the book, educate yourself, and don't take risks with your life.
