LOS CHEQUEOS GENERALES EN ADULTOS NO REDUCEN LA MORTALIDAD NI LA MORBILIDAD EN LOS ADULTOS

No lo digo yo, lo dice la Cochrane (Palabra de Dios….)

 

General health checks did not reduce morbidity or mortality, neither overall nor for cardiovascular or cancer causes, although the number of new diagnoses was increased. Important harmful outcomes, such as the number of follow-up diagnostic procedures or short term psychological effects, were often not studied or reported and many trials had methodological problems. With the large number of participants and deaths included, the long follow-up periods used, and considering that cardiovascular and cancer mortality were not reduced, general health checks are unlikely to be beneficial.
