JANICE M. HOROWITZ
Covering health for Time magazine gave me abiding respect for doctors, who usually go into medicine for noble reasons. But after reporting on hundreds of stories it became clear that something is corrupting the way medicine is practiced today.
I’ll help you take charge.
The first hint that we have a problem came early in my career when I saw how medical studies—hormone replacement therapy will prevent heart disease; hormone replacement therapy will cause heart disease—clashed with each other week to week, leaving readers frustrated. To help health consumers figure out what’s behind these studies, I created and hosted a public radio segment called Dueling Docs, the Cure to Contradictory Medicine.
Now, in Health Your Self, I get to the bottom of the entire mess of medicine and tease out all the unseen factors that go into your health care so you know exactly what to do when you’re in a doctor’s office or hospital.
