Good article, I,ve been wondering especially after so many people getting treatment, post primary, if maybe thats the bulk of over treatment right there. The SRT rate really bothers me, as does HT, being done so early because I have serious concerns about, not the need so much, as to the timing of the need. I am not bashing the medical community here and if I am, I am bashing every major institution in our civilization from churches to banks to auto shops to ad nauseum. Because, IMO, the civilization we live in today is all about the money in pretty much every arena of our lives. It drives everything. I remember a time when this was not the case and it was not that long ago.
