Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Part 1
December 11, 2018
Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Award-winning investigative journalist Jeanne Lenzer joins us to discuss her book, "The Danger Within Us: America’s Untested, Unregulated Medical Device Industry and One Man’s Battle to Survive." Over 30 million Americans have them—that’s 1/10th of the population. Implantable devices include artificial hips and knees, pacemakers and defibrillators, breast implants, nerve stimulators, contraceptive devices, surgical mesh, and countless other applications. These devices can fail—sometimes with disastrous consequences. Why does the current regulatory scheme allow these minimally-tested devices to reach the marketplace? What is “disease creep”? And why is the treatment sometimes worse than the disease? What should every potential device recipient know before getting anything permanently implanted in their body? Click HERE for part 2.
