Description Doctors are More Harmful Than Germs de Harvey Bigelsen:
Most people would consider a knife wound to the stomach a serious health risk, but a similar scalpel wound in an operating room is often shrugged off. Harvey Bigelsen explains how doctors overprescribe surgery and ignore its long-term health implications.
Harvey Bigelsen, MD, helped found the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA) in 1978, and three years later helped to write the Arizona law allowing alternative medical practitioners to be licensed and judged by their peers rather than by mainstream doctors. A frequent lecturer for alternative health organizations, he lives in Nevada City, CA. Medical writer Lisa Haller lives in St. Paul, MN.
