In many cases, it's safer to do nothing than have surgery for prostate cancer.
Steroids, now widely prescribed for many minor conditions, can cause immediate, permanent,- debilitating damage.
Bone scans to screen for osteoporosis are imprecise, often inaccurate, and may not signify anything.
In the overwhelming majority of cases, antibiotics are prescribed for conditions they cannot treat.
Ritalin, taken by as many as a million American children, has questionable benefits, numerous side effects, and a high potential for addiction or abuse.
