These “Screenings” Could WRECK Your Health!

Let me tell you something that most doctors will NEVER admit to you.

They’re TERRIFIED if being sued.

I mean, they wake up panicked, drenched in their own sweat, in the middle of the night – because they’re having nightmares about being sued.

So what’s the end result?

They test the HECK out of you to cover their own butts.

They’ll send you for screening after screening, usually with some mumbo-jumbo about the importance of early detection… or why it’s “better safe than sorry.”

But some of these screenings aren’t just unnecessary… they could end up wrecking your health.

Here’s what you need to know. 

The evidence from multiple studies is clear: once you reach a certain age you should stop screening.

Even in young, healthy populations, over-testing can lead to over-diagnosis and over-treatment.

Sometimes the problem is caused by inaccurate test results (false-positives). Other times, doctors just feel like they have to treat a problem once they find it – even if you’re in no danger.

The most dangerous screenings are for breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.

Researchers estimate that up to two-thirds of prostate cancer tests (and one-third of breast cancer tests) are worthless. That’s because these tests are often inaccurate or flag small, slow-growing tumors that will never harm you.  

But you end up getting them cut, burned, or poisoned out of you anyway. For no benefit at all. 

Medical complications also arise from simple screening tests. Colonoscopy tears are common in people over 70 and can lead to death.

Prostate screening also leads to infection in about 6% of prostate biopsies.  

Men would love to say goodbye to rectal exams–as women would love to say goodbye to PAP smears. The key is deciding when they are still valuable (or not).

So, how do you decide?

As with many health issues, it depends on the person. My 86-year-old father is done. He won’t go to a doctor for another test–mostly because he refuses the next step (surgery, medications, etc.).

Each person must make their own choice. If you are in great health and you are 90, maybe you should have that test. But if you’re in bad health and are 70, maybe it is time to say no.

It’s hard to let go and trust ourselves with our health, but doing just that (and ignoring your doctor’s suggestion for testing) may keep you healthy for longer. 

Health and Happiness,
