a well written and insightful blog!!!
an excellent review by KATIE WATSON of THE HASTINGS CENTER..
a must read for physicians..
from theuniversity of minnesota, department of economics…
this is a study from 2007…analyzing the MALMO, SWEDEN data…reviewed again by others at SLOAN-KETTERING in 2010 & 2011….it confirms what I have suspected for more than five years….a PSA < O.5 B4 the age of 50 portends low risk…<1.o=cause for concern…thanks!!!!!
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21149802 this is a very flawed study, considering that almost 94% of the patients were white males…there may be some skewing in the minds of physicians (myself included)…I have always observed that PARKINSON DISEASE affects tall…white…atheletic MEN!!!
http://www.propublica.org/blog/item/drug-company-used-ghostwriters-to-write-work-bylined-by-academics-documents apparently none of these bozoes consider this problematic…this smells of prostitution or worse!!!
Medical News: ASN: Doubling Dialysis Frequency Cuts Deaths – in Meeting Coverage, ASN from MedPage Today
read this carefully…there was an increase in adverse events, but this info has been around forever…length of each treatment is longer in EUROPE..unfortunately, it all boils down to $$$ and the combined conflict of interest by physicians and medical device manufacturers…IMHO
