Routine Physicians Don’t Save Lives

According to a new study, general health checkups are unlikely going to be beneficial.

The study, published in MedPage today, found that patients who had regular general health checkups died of cancer and cardiovascular disease at virtually the same rate as those who did not have checkups.

The studies did not reduce mortality, but some did show increased hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and certain chronic diseases.
