Author Q&A: Shannon Brownlee on overtreatment of patients

Shannon BrownleeShannon Brownlee's book “Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine is Making Us Sicker and Poorer” challenges one of the core beliefs of American health care: that more is better. “Overtreated” was named the No. 1 economics book of 2007 by The New York Times, over books by Alan Greenspan and Robert Reich. Brownlee talks to AHCJ about the book, how health care is playing into the presidential election, and what health reporters should be asking about and examining.
