Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

The value of regular medical check-ups and screenings has come into question, dividing the medical community and causing confusion among patients. Independent groups such as the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and The Cochrane Library in Europe say there’s little evidence that check-ups and screenings reduce health risks and can even do harm. Some physicians disagree. What’s prompting this divide within the medical community? How should patients react to this information? And what advice should they follow?
