How do you spot if your surgeon's a dud? Did you know that coffee-drinking lessens the risk of suicide? That amniocentesis is sometimes performed without ultrasound, putting unborn babies at risk? That one third of the 62 different sorts of artificial hip on the market have not been properly tested? That there are 15,000 practising doctors with alcohol or drug problems? That most cases of AIDS in babies are preventable? This tie-in book to the popular TV series examines health issues from a consumer's perspective, exposing the myths and the strange reluctance of the medical profession to pass on new findings to patients. Illustrated throughout with anecdotes and quotes from leading practitioners, and written in Phil Hammond's irreverent style, this is the health book that will ensure you'll never be bamboozled by the medical profession again.
