What is happening to medicine? Are the dictums of Standard of Care outweighing the needs of those who are to be served? I think so. Take, for instance, the screening recommendations for prostate cancer. The USPSTF concluded several years ago, 2012 I believe, that screening for men younger than 75 “offered no benefit” to that age group. Insufficient evidence was their language. And if someone is over 75, then they recommend totally against screening. I have read the background to these recommendations.
