As a physician it is refreshing to hear someone explain the science simply to help remove the fear mongering that recent medicine/health culture has developed in an effort to make money off of the unfortunate and totally unprepared patient. The question will be can the patient who is used to letting others think for them learn well enough to save themselves from the current proverbial snowball?

Dr.Welch has further consolidated the earlier discussions in his previous two books: " over diagnosed" and "Should I Be Tested for Cancer?: Maybe Not and Here's Why". The ideas of overdiagnosing and overtreating were supported by some new examples as those related to angioplasty for the asymptomatic patient, prescribing antiarrhythmics for chronic AF, back surgery and dental interventions..etc and expanded to include the care of the near dying patients.. Support listening/reading the book especially for those adopting (? may be breaching) the principle of trying to do less for getting more of health..
