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.

Summary[edit]

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".[1] A magazine review said that the message of the book was that "When it comes to health care, more is not always better."[2]

Reviews[edit]

A reviewer for Oncology Times said that the book was "beautifully written—clear and direct, filled with facts bookended by stories".[3]
