Does this routinely go in for tests and screenings that are used to detect things that might not really affect your life really that necessary?

Can they really differentiate between old age, normal wear & tear, diet, exercise or lack there of, enviorment etc or are they academics trying to bring your body up to spec?

Look at the controversy with PSA screenings and prostate and yet health care industry wants to aggressively treat with surgery, chemo and radiaton without tumors or lack of function.

All these tests and screenings open the door to a money pit and more tests and another money pit. Perpetual job security for the health care and health insurance industry.
