This book is a controversial skewering of how doctors and the medical industry turn healthy people into patients.
Nortin M. Hadler, M.D., M.A.C.P., M.A.C.R., F.A.C.O.E.M., is professor of medicine and microbiology/immunology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attending rheumatologist at UNC Hospitals. He is author of several books, including"Stabbed in the Back: Confronting Back Pain in an Overtreated Society" and "Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society".
"A brutal critique of much of what we do in medicine." New England Journal of Medicine "Like a veteran umpire, he calls 'em as he sees them. Much of what modern medicine advocates bears scrutiny, and Hadler examines it critically. Must reading for the public and for physicians." Journal of the American Medical Association "Hadler attempts to disabuse his readers of the pervasive and arguably mistaken belief that there is good evidence to support the broad application of such things as coronary artery bypass grafting for angina; cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood glucose monitoring; and screening for colon, breast, and prostate cancer." Canadian Medical Association Journal
