A fearless investigation of mainstream medicine's most revered dogma, Bridge Across the Abyss is solidly based on trusted medical literature. Find out why advice from authorities on screening tests, blood transfusions, pain and anti-reflux medicines, vitamin supplementation, cholesterol and diet is often wrong. See how clinical trials are slanted. This is a single compendium consisting of a discussion that describes commonly employed clinical practices that are instituted and taught despite the surprising lack of data supporting their use. In essence, these have created a medical dogma that is seldom questioned and accepted as valid regardless of what the evidence has borne out.
