[Alert] Seeing These Docs Could Be DEADLY
You’re in the hospital after a heart attack… you’ve just had a brush with death… and you’re scared out of your mind.
You’d want to see a heart specialist immediately, right?
Well, not so fast.
New research proves that a visit from a cardiologist could end up killing you.
And you won’t BELIEVE why.
If this isn’t an indictment against how medicine is practiced in America, I don’t know what is.
Harvard researchers recently studied more than 34,000 U.S. heart attack records from 2007-2012.
And they found that your BEST chance of surviving a heart attack is during the week when many cardiologists are at an annual meeting known as the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics conference.
You read that right… you’re better off when hospital cardiologists are OUT OF TOWN!
The rest of the year, roughly 17 percent of patients die within 30 days of hospitalization after a heart attack.
But during that annual conference, that number drops to less than 15 percent!
Out of 34,000 patients, that’s more than 680 lives spared because they didn’t get treated by these “specialists.”
And, believe it or not, previous research has yielded similar results.
In an earlier study, the Harvard team found that patients hospitalized for cardiac arrest or severe heart failure also fared better during the annual American College of Cardiology meeting.
Researchers say they’re not sure why that’s happening.
I say they’re full of bull… OF COURSE we know why this is happening.
The survival difference was concentrated among patients with less-severe cardiac episodes.
These are the EXACT SAME PEOPLE who are routinely over-treated by cardiologists with dangerous surgeries and medications they don’t need.
And, sure enough, the cardiologists who attend these conferences specialize in invasive procedures like angioplasty and stenting.
Case closed, as far as I’m concerned.
If you or a loved one is ever hospitalized for a heart attack, be sure that you get multiple opinions before agreeing to even the most minimally invasive procedure.
In many cases, LESS treatment may end up saving your life.
