Description du Livre

“Early detection” has become a cardinal principle of medical treatment in our time. But how effective is it in controlling two conditions that have reached near-epidemic proportions in the United States—prostate cancer and depression?

In this trenchant appraisal of what he calls medical activism, Stewart Justman describes how the quest for early detection has led to mass screenings, which in turn have revealed an incidence of disease that is beyond common sense and cautious medical practice. The entire process has led to patients who have been not helped but damaged.
