How to See Through the Hype in Medical News, Ads, and Public Service Announcements

By Steven Woloshin M.D.M.S.

Review by Patti J. Ryan
Last updated: October 10, 2018

Every day we are bombarded by television ads, public service announcements, and media reports warning of dire risks to our health and offering solutions. But many of these messages are incomplete, misleading, or exaggerated, leaving the average person misinformed and confused. They use fear to make us feel vulnerable.

Know Your Chances: Understanding Health Statistics is for those who look for the footnotes when reading about healthcare claims, who question the facts behind today’s bombardment of health risk messages.

Discover why some studies should be viewed with suspicion, learn to interpret the numbers behind the messages, find the credible information—if any, and what questions patients need to ask before choosing a treatment.
