What your doctor might be doing wrong

Modern medicine is good at responding to challenges like disease. But it’s less adept in preventing diseases from occurring in the first place. Dr. Peter Attia says that modern medical guidelines often focus on too short a time horizon. By refocusing on early prevention, we can add high-quality years to our lifespans.

Case Study: Cancer

Take cancer, for instance. Early detection of any cancer tends to significantly increase survival rate. But the current standards for screening methods only prioritize early detection for a few types, such as colon cancer, skin cancer, and cervical cancer. By implementing dietary interventions and addressing metabolic health, we can use lifestyle adjustments to help make up for that lack of screening.
