"Blind faith and blind trust toward health care are luxuries we can no longer afford," writes Colleen Badell Ph. D., in Is Your Health Care Killing You?: 12 Ways to Survive Our Fractured Health Care System. A severe wake-up call to incompetence, mismanagement, excessive cost-cutting, and sometimes outright fraud rife within the health care industry, Is Your Health Care Killing You? describes at length how ordinary individuals can engage in preventive health self-care to improve one's lifestyle, the importance of requesting copies of records and reports, how to prepare for appointments, what to look for when being selective about health care providers, and much more. Appendices include state agency and licensing boards, consumer advocacy groups, and a list of professional associations and organizations. A highly readable, down-to-earth guide written by a medical industry insider especially for the public at the mercy of a powerful and all too often ruthless system.
