Recommended Reading

Today's post goes a bit further afield from the usual focus of this blog to recommend Dr. Nortin Hadler's latest book, "Worried Sick: A Prescription for Health In An Overtreated America," which continues his theme (from his prior book, "The Last Well Person: How to Stay Well Despite the Health-Care System") of Americans generally being 'over-medicalized,' with greater reliance on technology and the medical system than is warranted by a careful review of actual outcomes. Worth a read for the health-conscious.
