For years there have been Nay Sayers about PSA testing. This test is routinely performed on men and it used to be performed with frequency. Then came many articles questioning the value of the study and suggesting that the test didn't really change any outcomes. Doesn't it make you wonder what drives medical decisions? It was a similar scandal about the use of magnesium sulfate which was known to be protective of the brains of certain infants. Infants whose mothers had received magnesium sulfate for the purpose of delaying delivery had better chance of being neurologically intact in spite of their premature birth than infants whose mother had not received the drug. Ten years later the New England Journal questioned why the standard of practice had not yet caught up with the convincing evidence produced ten years earlier.  Here we go again.

The article linked is titled "PSA Tests Cut Metastatic Prostate Cancer Rate by 50%" and requires a free account to read.

This dentist's practice of using paper clips instead of dental posts is hopefully rare - but it's a good example of the fact that patients need to ask questions of their care providers. Ideally, you shouldn't have to ask "are you using office supplies in place of medical supplies?" - but we urge you to be a smart medical consumer, and do your due diligence. Be sure that you trust your doctors before consenting to medical care.
