Less Medicine, More Health: 7 Assumptions That Drive Too Much Medical Care

Dr. H. Gilbert Welch explains why offering too much health care can actually do more harm than good.
  • Overview

    The central problem with health care, according to physician and author Dr. H. Gilbert Welch, is that too much of it has too little value.

    Host Dr. John Russell chats with Dr. Welch about his book Less Medicine, More Health: 7 Assumptions that Drive Too Much Medical Care and the issues of the American healthcare system today. They talk about how the American public has been sold the idea that seeking medical care is one of the most important steps to maintaining wellness. Dr. Welch argues that more medical care is not, in fact, well correlated with good health; by contrast, the opposite may be true.
