Why wouldn't you want to be screened to see if you're at risk
for cancer, heart disease, or another potentially lethal condition?
After all, better safe than sorry. Right?
Not so fast, says Alan Cassels. His "Seeking Sickness" takes us
inside the world of medical screening, where well-meaning
practitioners and a profit-motivated industry offer to save our
lives by exploiting our fears. He writes that promoters of
screening overpromise on its benefits and downplay its harms, which
can range from the merely annoying to the life threatening. If
you're facing a screening test for breast or prostate cancer, high
cholesterol, or low testosterone, someone is about to turn you into
a patient. You need to ask yourself one simple question: "Am I
ready for all the things that could go wrong?"
