    Should You Be Getting a "Tune Up" Instead of a Checkup?
    With the recent research showing that much of the screening done at checkups -- including PSA prostate cancer testing and many mammograms -- does more harm than good, it's time for a change.

    Instead of getting checkups to see if you have "IT" yet (cancer, heart disease, etc), it's time to take a cue from your car and get an occasional "tune up."

    That's right... just like your car gets a 10-point tune up, so should you.

    Special guest, Jacob Tietlbaum, MD, joins Dr. Holly to share more information on these potentially harmful screenings and why you should take the proactive approach, rather than the reactive approach to health.
