I’ve just finished “The Patient Paradox: Why Sexed Up Medicine is Bad for Your Health” by Margaret McCartney. It looks at the lack of evidence behind some of our most basic healthcare approaches and whether screening the healthy population for diseases they have no symptoms for (eg breast cancer, bowel cancer) actually does more harm than good. She makes a very good point, with eye opening evidence but she repeats her point a few too many times for my liking. By the end, you are almost screaming “yes, I get it, now shut up”.
