The author of the highly acclaimed Overdiagnosed describes seven widespread assumptions that encourage excessive, often ineffective, and sometimes harmful medical care. You might think the biggest problem in medical care is that it costs too much. Or that health insurance is too expensive, too uneven, too complicated—and gives you too many forms to fill out. But the central problem is that too much medical care has too little value. Dr. H. Gilbert Welch is worried about too much medical care. It’s not to deny that some people get too little medical care, rather that the conventional concern about “too little” needs to be balanced with a concern about “too much”: too many people being made to worry about diseases they don’t have—and are at only average risk to get; too many people being tested and exposed to the harmful effects of the testing process; too many people being subjected to treatments they don’t need—or can’t benefit from. The American public has been sold the idea that seeking medical care is one of the most important steps to maintain wellness. Surprisingly, medical care is not, in fact, well correlated with good health. So more medicine does not equal more health; in reality the opposite may be true. The general public harbors assumptions about medical care that encourage overuse, assumptions like it’s always better to fix the problem, sooner (or newer) is always better, or it never hurts to get more information. Less Medicine, More Health pushes against established wisdom and suggests that medical care can be too aggressive. Drawing on his twenty-five years of medical practice and research, Dr. Welch notes that while economics and lawyers contribute to the excesses of American medicine, the problem is essentially created when the general public clings to these powerful assumptions about the value of tests and treatments—a number of which are just plain wrong. By telling fascinating (and occasionally amusing) stories backed by reliable data, Dr. Welch challenges patients and the health-care establishment to rethink some very fundamental practices. His provocative prescriptions hold the potential to save money and, more important, improve health outcomes for us all.

Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Preventive Medicine by Jekel MD MPH, James F., Katz MD MPH, David L., Wild MD MP. Published by Saunders,2007, Binding: Paperback 3rd Edition
La práctica de la medicina ha cambiado dramáticamente en los últimos cientos de años. Desde sus rudimentarios inicios, hasta un entendimiento muy detallado de las funciones y anatomía del cuerpo humano, nuestro actual conocimiento del ser humano nunca había sido tan profundo. No solo las ciencias médicas han evolucionado, sino también muchas otras como la química, agricultura, astrología y física solo por nombrar algunas.La "modernización" de nuestro estilo de vida ha traído confort y ha mejorado nuestra supervivencia, pero al mismo tiempo ha creado un medio ambiente que es muy dañino para nuestra salud. Este mundo moderno lleno de radiación, toxicidades, con antibióticos y hormonas alimentando a los animales, comidas modificadas genéticamente y otros insultos, ha creado una epidemia de enfermedades crónicas, como la Obesidad, Diabetes, enfermedades Cardíacas, Cáncer, enfermedades Autoinmunes, Neurológicas, Psiquiátricas y Respiratorias. Incluso enfermedades que antes eran raras como el Autismo y la Fibromialgia son rampantes hoy en día.Desafortunadamente, la medicina ha encarado estos serios desafíos recetando el uso de más y más medicamentos químicos (y de venta libre). Algunos de estos han sido muy útiles, pero la mayoría sólo han creado más daño a nuestros ya deteriorados cuerpos. Estos medicamentos causan efectos secundarios, disminución nutricional y a veces interactúan con otros creando más problemas que beneficios.Este libro, Medicina Moderna para tiempos Modernos, es una introducción a un tipo de medicina que se enfoca en la raíz que provoca la enfermedad. El libro explora la historia de la Medicina, los fármacos y el surgimiento de la Medicina Funcional como ciencia. Este tipo de medicina va más allá de los resultados de un análisis o escaneo. Se enfoca en el "Por Qué" y lo resuelve en su origen. La mayoría de las enfermedades crónicas modernas tienen factores comunes que las causan en esas raíces, como la inflamación, oxidación, deficiencias nutricionales y de hormonas, intoxicación por metales pesados y otras toxicidades del ambiente, salud intestinal, actividad física, selección de alimentos y manejo de estrés.El libro explica cada una de estas raíces o causas bases de la salud y enfermedad. Y proporciona consejos de como balancear, tanto nuestros cuerpos como nuestro medio ambiente, de manera que seamos capaces de mitigar, sino que erradicar, la mayoría de estas enfermedades de tiempos modernos.
