Doctors Can Be Dangerous to Your Health! — New Book Unveils Shocking Revelations About Medical Malpractice and Medical Care

NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Doctors are like double-edged swords that can either save you or kill you. In her provocative new book, Appointment with Danger: Medical Care Can Kill You, author Louise Lane educates you on the dangers lurking in doctors' offices and hospitals, and how to steer clear of them.

Appointment with Danger points out the ways doctors can be dangerous to your health and well-being. The author names the medical culprits such as rough treatment, vision loss from eye tests, drugs, injury or surgery, callous prescribing of harmful and habit-forming drugs, and excessive blood tests that weaken the immune system. She also discusses the fundamentals of the Do Not Resuscitate Orders, the Health Care Proxy, patients' rights, euthanasia, medical experimentation, practice on the dying, and doctors' attitudes. Included at the end of the book are forty-eight cases of malpractice, mishaps, and murder that shook the medical industry off its hinges.

Contrary to the popular witticism, what you do not know can definitely kill you. The book, with its shocking and enlightening revelations, tells you what you should know before seeking medical treatment, saving you unnecessary medical worries or complications. So protect yourself. With Appointment with Danger, you cannot have a better ally.
