The Treatment Trap - How the Overuse of Medical Care is Wrecking your Health and what you can do to Prevent it is a 2010 book by Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh about unnecessary health care.
AARP described the book as an exploration of "the reasons why many physicians are overly cautious, incompetent, or under great pressure to produce revenues in a health care system that seems to encourage these practices". A magazine review said that the message of the book was that "When it comes to health care, more is not always better."
A reviewer for Oncology Times said that the book was "beautifully written—clear and direct, filled with facts bookended by stories".
