Dr. Wallach recommends swallowing pill camera to avoid puncture and death from colonoscopic exams

Listen here:

I also recommend that people should get over their testing anxiety.  95% of the time, Americans are doing too much "scientific" lab work, testing, scanning, screening and examinatons.  I'm not the only one who feels this way.  Dr. Doug McGuff, an emergency room physician who wrote the book Body by Science and improved on the SuperSlow method of resistance training, agrees that much of the testing Americans subject themselves to is unnecessary.  Sally Fallon, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, one of the most important true (living) food authorities, says that cholesterol testing is "a complete waste of time and money" and that she has "never been tested."  I think this is a good example for us to follow since cholesterol shouldn't really be considered high until it is around 1000.  300 is not high cholesterol.  350 is not high cholesterol.  500 is not high cholesterol.  Perhaps 1000 is high cholesterol.  Of course if you think you're at high risk for heart disease there are other tests you could get that might not be totally worthless.  C-reactive protein (CRP) testing is fine, and one example of a test that wouldn't be completely worthless.

Thanks for reading.
