WHY ARE YOU NOT GETTING CURRENT MEDICAL ADVICE?

  • YOUR DOC IS NOT ALLOWED  (SURPRISED? LEARN WHY)

  • MALPRACTICE PROTECTION (HE WANTS TO PLAY IT SAFE)

  • STANDARD OF CARE IS NOT CURRENT, BUT YOUR DOC CAN'T OBJECT

  • HE IS LAZY & IS NOT KEEPING CURRENT (THINGS HAVE CHANGED)

  • YOUR DOC GETS HIS UPDATES FROM DRUG COMPANY SALESMEN

  • BIG PHARMA HAS HIM FOOLED (THIS IS NO JOKE)

  • THE STANDARDS OF CARE FOR HIS SPECIALTY ARE WRONG 

  • THE US GOVERNMENT STANDARDS ARE SOMETIMES WRONG

  • HE ONLY HAS 5-10 MINUTES TO SPEND WITH YOU ($$)

  • HE IS NOT INDEPENDENT AND HAS TO FOLLOW THE COMPANY LINE

  • HE MAY KNOW MORE THAN HE CAN SHARE BECAUSE OF TIME ($$)

  • STANDARD CHANGES FOLLOW NEW SCIENCE BY A LONG PERIOD OF TIME

  • THERE IS FRAUD IN SCIENCE (JUST AS BAD AS WALL STREET)

  • DIETARY STUDIES ARE PARTICULARLY PRONE TO ERROR 

  • YOUR DOCS ARE ALL TRAINED TO WRITE Rx's AND DO PROCEDURES,  FEW OF WHICH WILL CURE ANYTHING EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW BETTER

  • IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR OPTIONS, YOU ARE AT THE MERCY OF THE SYSTEM OUTLINED ABOVE.  YOU WILL PROBABLY DIE YOUNGER THAN NEEDED.

  • YOU MUST CHALLENGE YOUR DOC WITH EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE.  THE INFORMATION IS ALL AVAILABLE TO YOU.
