OVERDIAGNOSED Making People Sick in Pursuit of Health

by | Read by Sean Runnette

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Narrator Sean Runnette’s gentle voice and connection with this consumer-awareness health topic make this audiobook easy to absorb. In his tender, authentic way, he speaks to the hearts of listeners, asking them to consider the wise counsel of these authors, palpably caring about whether or not they do. The subject is personal responsibility for one’s health, which the authors say can be compromised when Western medicine strives to detect diseases long before symptoms are evident. Using lucid examples of tests and treatments that can do harm, the authors offer simple advice: Don’t avoid doctors altogether, but approach every diagnostic procedure recommended with thoughtful research on the risks of the test itself, the side effects of the treatment offered, and the likely course of a condition with and without it.
