S of water a dayFACTCoughing won’t help if you’re having a heart attack But aspirin willWe’ve become a nation of cyberchondriacs diagnosing ourselves with false information and half truths found on sketchy websites In Medical Myths That Can Kill You Dr Nancy Snyderman chief medical editor for NBC News provi Medical Myths That Can Kill You is surprisingly good I picked it up out of the Library because I wanted to see what sort of myths would prevail around 2008 We all heard about Vaccinations and other such things but what other misconceptions exist in the field of medicine I honestly saw the title and picked it up without seeing the full cover When I saw the image of some photogenic woman on the cover I didn t know what to expect I especially didn t know what to expect when I saw that she was the Chief Medical Editor for NBC News This doesn t tell me much since I don t watch television very often I mean how do you choose for that sort of positionSo the book has a ton of information packed into its pages It is organized by talking about a myth that exists and telling a story to debunk this myth Along the way we find the medical truths put into little sections that distract from the mainline of conversation For example the first myth that the book talks about is that you don t need to have regular check ups It puts it like this Annual Check ups are Obsolete This is one of the silliest things I have ever heard of Everyone should know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure Along that line of ideas we find truths that relate to the mythThe book only covers seven myths This is good but most of the myths are honestly very dangerous and silly misconceptions The section on Vaccinations is especially heart wrenching since it talks about a vibrant young man who contracted Meningitis and was hoping to become a doctor He eventually died after falling into a coma but not before they had to amputate some of his limbs Following the anecdotal story the book goes into suggestions for how to maintain your healthIt was a well done book I enjoyed it uite a bit The information is delivered in a manner that doesn t use too many jargon words I appreciated this as well Although the book is mostly devoid of those sorts of terms it does get the point across that this author knows what she is talking about
