Artgo de revisão da Biblioteca Cochrane, mostra que “check up” não reduzem mortalidade… E dê – lhe exame, na tentativa da imortaslidade física… Será uma nova religião disfarçada de tecnologia, ou simplesmente vontade de ganhar dinheiro em cima de um dos medos mais profundos dos humanos: o medo da morte e do desconhecido?
The Cochrane Library
“General health checks did not reduce morbidity or mortality, neither overall nor for cardiovascular or cancer causes, although the number of new diagnoses was increased. Important harmful outcomes, such as the number of follow-up diagnostic procedures or short term psychological effects, were often not studied or reported and many trials had methodological problems. With the large number of participants and deaths included, the long follow-up periods used, and considering that cardiovascular and cancer mortality were not reduced, general health checks are unlikely to be beneficial.”
