Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show talking about medical screening tests. Asserting that these tests don't actually prevent any diseases only possibly early detection of disease. In response to a news article that claims colon cancer screening prevents deaths from colon cancer. However they believe this only because colon cancer deaths have declined while screening has increased. But no real empiricle data to prove this claim that there is a correlation.

 

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a study of drunk doctors. Researchers at Washington University sent out questionaires to over 25,000 surgeons to find ones that have alcohol abuse problems. The study found that 15% of those that responded had alcohol dependency and that 45% of those admitted to a major medical mistake in the past three months. Researchers also believe that the percentage is actually much higher because only about 7200 of the 25,000 responded to the survey.
