9780007176274: What Doctors Don't Tell You: The Truth About the Dangers of Modern Medicine

New edition of this highly controversial and campaigning book that reveals the truth about the pills and procedures your doctor prescribes and offers proven alternatives for diagnosing, preventing and treating many illnesses. Includes updated information on all the most recent health issues – vaccination, HRT, Viagra, IVF and more.

Every year, 1.17 million British people – a population the size of Birmingham – are put in a hospital bed by a medical procedure gone wrong. And 80% of most of the treatments we take for granted have never been scientifically proven to work.

In this groundbreaking book, leading health campaigner Lynne McTaggart reveals the real secrets of modern medicine. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition tackles some of the most worrying health issues of recent years.
For example, did you know:
• Statin drugs, the new miracle cure for high cholesterol, are causing a heart failure epidemic?
• SSRI drugs – now come with a black box warning about suicide risk to children
• HRT, touted as the most important preventative treatment for all the diseases of female old age, actually causes heart disease, dementia, strokes and cancer?
• IVF could be causing cases of breast cancer?
• The statistics about illnesses prevented by vaccination are vastly overplayed?
• Viagra, the great white hope of male impotence, has caused a rash of sudden deaths and is effective, at most, only half the time.

What Doctors Don’t Tell You gives you all the information you need to take your health into your own hands, exposing the true dangers of conventional medicine and offering up-to-the-minute, scientifically proven alternatives for diagnosing, preventing and treating many illnesses.

Review:

'Rings the alarm bells on procedures well before they become the stuff of national panic.' Observer

'The ultimate almanac by a pioneer and innovator in the field of health … Engaging, provocative and a must-read for all.'’ Dr Gillian McKeith

‘A mine of subversive information…irresistibly argued. Lynne McTaggart is a very big thorn in the side of the medical propaganda machine.’ DR KEITH MUMBY, author of The Allergy Handbook

‘A hugely impressive book, and the finest critique of modern medical practice I have yet read. Lynne McTaggart takes a scalpel straight to the heart of medicine’s most cherished dogmas. Essential reading…’ PETER COX, health campaigner and bestselling author

'A fascinating and well-researched expose.' Patrick Holford

'Lynne McTaggart has done the public a huge service by highlighting modern medicine's major failings in this book. Reading it will help ensure that we can make more informed choices about the healthcare we choose.' Dr John Briffa

From the Back Cover:

READ THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU SEE YOUR DOCTOR

Every year 1.17 million British people – a population the size of Birmingham – are put in a hospital bed by a medical procedure gone wrong.

The shocking truth is that 80 per cent of most of the treatments we take for granted – cholesterol lowering, heart surgery, even treatments for everyday conditions like arthritis or asthma – have never been scientifically proven to work, let alone to be safe. In many instances modern medicine's 'cure' is far worse than the disease.

DID YOU KNOW?

• Mammograms may be more likely to cause cancer than identify it?
• Cholesterol-lowering regimes can actually increase your chances of dying?
• Foetal ultrasound scans don't make one bit of difference to your health or that of your baby?
• In many cases it's safer to do nothing than have surgery for prostate cancer?

By letting you in on the real trade secrets of medicine, this groundbreaking book is your insurance agent against becoming just another medical statistic. It also offers up-to-the-minute proven scientific alternatives for diagnosing, preventing or treating many illnesses. 'What Doctors Don't Tell You' will become your medical Bible, helping you to take control of your own health.

Since 1989, award-winning journalist Lynne McTaggart has shaken the British medical establishment and earned the loyalty of many thousands of readers as editor of her monthly newsletter, 'What Doctors Don't Tell You.'

"A mine of subversive information… irresistibly argued. Lynne McTaggart is a very big thorn in the side of the medical propaganda machine."
DR KEITH MUMBY, allergy specialist and author of 'The Allergy Handbook'

"A hugely impressive book, and the finest critique of modern medical practice I have yet read. Lynne McTaggart takes a scalpel straight to the heart of medicine's most cherished dogmas. Essential reading…"
PETER COX, health campaigner and best-selling author
