Publisher's Summary

Killer Cure will change forever how you think about your health and health care. Leaving conventional wisdom in the dust, Killer Cure reveals startling and unforgettable insights:

Why health care in America accidentally kills 12,000 people each week even though every doctor and nurse you know is terrific.
Why health care’s hidden assumptions about you are almost certain to damage your health and what you can do about it.
Why health care’s focus on solving yesterday’s problems may reduce life expectancy in the U.S. by as much as five years.
Why you might want to become CEO of your own health and health care and how to go about it.
Actions taken by well-meaning doctors can hurt you in dozens of ways. For example:

Side effects and complications of treatments they give are very common. For instance, 17-19 million people a year land in the emergency room due to side effects of medicines they take.
The focus on actions the doctor takes crowds out actions you could take that would often get you better results. For example, more than 100,000 people a year get a foot or leg amputated instead of learning simple ways to prevent foot infections in the first place.
To get better results, the health care system needs to embrace a new purpose. This audio book will open your eyes and empower you to take charge of your health.
